Stacking the YA Shelves (May 12, 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 was a huge week for me. I added 10 books to my TBR mountain.
Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer was a Kindle Daily Deal this week. Since I was planning to attend Colfer's book signing, I thought it would be apropo to add one of his books to my Kindle. I read this one quite a while ago.

Sigmund Freud by Kathleen Krull arrived this week too. Now I have all of the currently published Giants of Science series. 
Black City by Elizabeth Richards arrived this week. I was waiting for a paperback copy.

I also got Loki's Wolves by Kelley Armstrong and Melissa Marr. I have been looking forward to this middle grade title. 
After all the hype, I had to get a copy of The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. It also helps that I like science fiction.

The Big Splash by Jack D. Ferraiolo was added to my stack because its sequel—The Quick Fix—won the Edgar Award for the Best Juvenile mystery. 
Maid of Secrets by Jennifer McGowan is a 2013 Debut novel that sounded good. I like the combination of historical fiction and spies. 

Wednesdays in the Tower by Jessica Day George was added to my stack because I enjoyed Tuesdays at the Castle.
Icons by Margaret Stohl was also added to my stack because of all the hype it has generated. 

Ink by Amanda Sun is my only review book of the week. I was approved by Harlequin Teen at NetGalley for this June 25 release. 

What did you add to your stack?
