Stacking the YA Shelves (Jan. 19, 2014)

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.

Delia's Shadow by Jamie Lee Moyer - I have wanted this book for a while. I was waiting for a good used copy at Amazon Marketplace.

The Shifter by Janie Hardy - This first book in the Healing Wars series was recommended on one of the many blogs I read. This is also a used copy from Amazon Marketplace.
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead - This graphic novel is the first in the series. It was also an Amazon Marketplace find. 

The Diviners by Libba Bray - During my last purge of my YA TBR shelves, my copy of The Diviners was donated to my HS Media Center mainly because it had been sitting a while, was large, and was on the shelf where I needed more room. When I saw that the Kindle copy was on sale, I decided that it was fate that I have this one. 

As a science fiction fan, I couldn't pass up a chance to read Elusion by Claudia Gabel and Cheryl Klam when I saw it at Edelweiss. This one will be released on March 18.

Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel was the first of my requests from 2014 Spring Macmillan Children's Publishing Group catalog to arrive. It will be released on May 13.

What did you get this week? Leave me a link.


  1. Yay for more Vampire Academy Graphic Novels!! I hope this series doesn't get canceled! I mean, it would be awful!!! Plus I reallllllly want to see Blood Promise in Graphic Novel form because that one would be awesome! And Spirit Bound too! More Adrian! And then of course we have to have the last one!
