Stacking the YA Shelves (Dec. 15, 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 four books to my stack this week.
I got Going Rogue by Robin Benway for review from Bloomsbury via NetGalley. I thought Also Known As was the funniest book I have read in a long time and was very glad to get this chance to read the sequel. This book will be released on January 14.

I also got Snakeroot by Andrea Cremer. I liked her Nightshade books and was happy to see that more books are being written in that world.

I also added a couple of books to my stack that have been on my wishlist for quite a while.
The Unnaturalists by Tiffany Trent was chosen because I liked the blurb. I couldn't resist this: "In an alternate London where magical creatures are called Unnaturals and preserved in a museum, two teens find themselves caught in a web of intrigue, deception, and danger."

Starglass by Phoebe North is science fiction and I can't resist science fiction. I don't think there is enough good science fiction for young adults. It was my favorite genre when I was a teen. 

What did you add to your stack this week?


  1. I've heard a lot about Snakeroot and Starglass, I hope to get them soon.
