Stacking the YA Shelves (July 21, 2013)

Tynga of  Team 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.

Here is what I got this past week.
I bought finished copies of the first two books in Kersten Hamilton's Goblin War series for my keeper shelves. In the Forests of the Night and Tyger, Tyger are very good fantasies that need to be publicized more. Tyger, Tyger was a bargain priced hard cover. In the Forests of the Night wasn't when I bought it but is now a bargain priced hard cover. I also added a copy of In the Forests of the Night to my Kindle where it will join Tyger, Tyger.
I bought two books that are the first in a series because I picked up the second books at ALA and want to read the stories in order.

Don't Turn Around by Michelle Gagnon is her debut novel and is a thriller.

False Memory by Dan Krokos is his debut novel and is science fiction/paranormal.  
I fed my Kindle with The Dark Discovery of Jack Dandy by Kady Cross which is a novella the supports her steampunk series (The Girl in the Iron Corset, etc.).

In the Age of Love and Chocolate by Gabrielle Zevin is the third book in her futuristic trilogy where chocolate is an illegal substance controlled by the mob. This is my first digital ARC from Macmillan and is the only review book I got this week. 
This week's SYNC audio books were Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers and Hamlet by William Shakespeare. I have read Grave Mercy and am eager to listen to it as well. These are still available through Wednesday.

What did you add to your stack this week? Leave me a link and I'll check out your additions.
