Stacking the YA Shelves (Oct. 13, 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.

I added seven books to my stack this week.

I got these five books when I went to see Cinda Williams Chima at The Red Balloon on Wednesday evening. I bought the Seven Realms books in matching paperbacks which will look really good on my bookshelves once I have had a chance to read them.
I also bought The Enchanter Heir which will join the rest of the Heir Chronicles - now nicely autographed - on my TBR mountain.

I took advantage of one Kindle Daily Deal this week and bought A Tale Dark & Grimm by Adam Gidwitz.
I also visited NetGalley this week and got a copy of Pawn by Aimee Carter for review because I was intrigued by the description of this novel. 

What did you add to your stack this week? Leave me a link.


  1. Nice! I finally got approved for Pawn myself! Weird...I have auto approval for Harlequin and it used to apply to the YA book, but then Harlequin Teen became its own division and I don't get auto approval for them!

    Hopefully that changes one day because it took forever to get approved for this one! Already read it too! Hope you enjoy it with the rest of your reads!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. I recently read and reviewed Pawn, quite enjoyed that one. A good edition to the dystopian genre!

    I have never read a Cinda Williams Chima book before, but I always think they look really interesting. Will have to pick one up soon.

  3. I really want to read Pawn. I've tried Aimee Carter's The Goddess Test but couldn't get into it. Hopefully this one'll be better!

  4. I think I have 3 of Chima's books that I have to read, and Pawn as well, wish I had that one. :)
    Happy reading!

  13. quite a lot of books there. Here's my small offering:

  14. Ok I have to ask you about the enchanter heir series...I got approved for the enchanter heir like awhile ago and then realized it was part of a series. Do you think I can read it or should I buy the warrior heir and read that first?
    Thanks for stopping by my STS!
