Stacking the YA Shelves (July 28, 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 are this week's SYNC books. The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen and The Prince and the Pauper by Mark Twain. I have already read both but it will be fun to read them again with my ears. By the way, The False Prince is available for $3.50 for your Kindle and The Prince and the Pauper can be had for even less.
So many people have been saying good things about The Distance Between Us by Kasie West that I decided I had to have a copy so that I can see for myself what the buzz is all about. 

Clockwise by Elle Strauss was a free book for my Kindle that sounded good. 
I got a second copy of Horde by Ann Aguirre for review from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group. I had received my first copy, also from them, on May 20. However, this one came with a cool cloth patch.
Also arriving from Macmillan this week was a CD with a playlist for This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales. I have to say that I have only heard of two of the artists and am totally unfamiliar with the music. If liking the book is dependent on being familiar with the music, I'm in trouble. I've had the book on my review stack since May 16.

What did you get this week?

  3. I absolutely loved The Distance Between Us. Caymen was the perfect amount of snark to Xander's swoons.

    Great haul, I hope you enjoy your new reads, and I'm jealous of that CD.

  9. That is really neat that the publisher included a CD with the playlist but like you, I hope the playlist isn't necessary to understanding or liking the book.

  16. Great haul! I cannot wait to start The False Prince, looks so good.
    Happy reading!

  17. I got the CD for This Song Will Save Your Life, too and I think I had the opposite reaction---alot of the songs were from bands I grew up listening to and it made me want to read the book when before I wasn't that interested! LOL

  18. I hope you like The Distance Between Us as much as I did! :)

    Thanks for stopping by my post!
