Stacking the YA Shelves (April 28, 2013)

Tynga of Tynga's Reviews hosts this meme to spotlight the books we receive each week. I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets.

This week I added five books to my stack. I took advantage of the April HarperTeen ebook deals to feed my Kindle with these:
Interworld by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves was one I completely missed when it came out in 2009. It sounds like an interesting fantasy/adventure. 

I have been looking at Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins for a while but never quite decided to buy it. The current sale price changed my mind. 
I had a copy of Wings by Aprilynne Pike on my physical TBR stack but ended up donating it unread to my High School Media center. Now, with a Kindle copy, I have it in a convenient but non-space consuming way. 

Variant by Robinson Wells was the last of the six book deals that I didn't already own. The Amazon blurb doesn't say much but the tags say it is science fiction. 
Finally, I got one more of the Giants of Science series. This week I got my copy of Marie Curie by Kathleen Krull. I was a little disappointed to see that it was a paperback. I thought I was buying a hardcover that I could use in my media center. Now, I am only missing Sigmund Freud to have the whole set. 

What did you get this week?


  1. OOh nice haul again! I read Wings last year and all the remaining books in the series to go still. It was an interesting read. Hoping that I when I get back to them I will remember what happened!

    Here's my STS

  9. I was happy to see those books on sale from HarperTeen too. I got Unraveling and Die For Me.

    Those Giant of Science books look really interesting. We've been homeschooling this year, so I'm always looking for new things to add to our curriculum.

    Thanks for stopping by my STS!

  14. I also totaly missed Interworld by Neil Gaiman when it was published. I found out about it just last week on friends blog. She said it was a little bit too middle-grade but I'm still going to read it, because I love Gaiman. :)
    Interesting books. I hope you enjoy them all!
    Thanks for stopping by my STS

  15. I still need to finish the Wings series, and the cover of Interworld is gorgeous.

    Thanks for stopping by our haul :)

  16. Sweet Evil is great! I should finally order my copy of the sequel, it comes out on Tuesday already...
    I've never heard of Interworld o.O I must check it out immediately!
    I was really unsure about Wings for a long time, even though I love fairy books. I finally got it a couple months back at the used book store, but I haven't read it yet.
    Enjoy all your new books, and thanks for stopping by my post :)

  17. You had anawesome haul this week! So many great books!! Happy Reading!!!

  18. Wings is awesome! Sweet Evil...not so much :))

  19. I haven't read anything else yet but some of these are on my TBR pile. Anyway, Sweet Evil is amazing! The new original twist Wendy puts on the angel theme and Kaidan Rowe will mealt any woman's heart. I adore this series and I can't wait to have Sweet Peril in my hands already. Tomorrow, yay!!! :) Happy reading!

  20. Wings was really good! I have Sweet Evil but haven't read it yet... Hope you like all your books this week :)

  21. I love it when publishers have sales. I always try to take advantage of them. I really like Neil Gaiman and I also completely missed the release of Interworld! I'll definitely be checking it out. I've seen Sweet Evil around a lot recently and it's another book I'v recently added to my "check it out" list. :) Happy reading!
