Stacking the YA Shelves (June 30 & July 7, 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.

Here is my epic mailbox. I was away from home at ALA on June 30 and couldn't post. (In fact, I was in the hospital six block from where ALA was happening - but my colleague walked the Exhibit Hall floor for me and picked these.)

Instead of linking each title, I am linking to my Google Drive spreadsheet of Review books here. I went to ALA with the goal of getting an ARC of Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas.  I got it. I hadn't hoped for an ARC of Curtsies & Conspiracies by Gail Carriger but my friend found that one for me too. 

As if that weren't enough, I got some more new books these past couple of weeks too.
I just read Shelter by Harlan Coben from my TBR mountain and had to have the sequel Seconds Away

This week's SYNC audiobook was Carter Finally Gets It by Brent Crawford. People have been telling me for years how funny it is. Now, I can see for myself.

Slayers: Friends and Traitors by C. J. Hill arrived from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group as an ARC along with a finished copy of Slayers by C. J. Hill.
Finn Finnegan by Darby Karchut was a Kindle Daily Deal this week. I read it and reviewed it a while ago and really liked this middle grade fantasy story.

I got an ARC of Uncrashable Dakota by Andy Marino from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group for review. 

Finally, I got an ARC of Altered by Gennifer Albin also from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group. I didn't picture it because I can't yet find a picture of the cover. Crewel's cliffhanger ending makes me want to read this one right now.

What did you add to your stack this week?


  1. OOh nice! I keep debating about Curtsies and Conspiracies! I liked the first book, but didn't love it like I thought I would!
