Stacking the YA Shelves (Feb. 16, 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.

I had a massive week this week. I couldn't resist a number of Kindle Daily Deals and I visited Edelweiss and NetGalley to check out auto-approved books.

Here is what I bought for my Kindle:
The Archived by Victoria Schwab was a Daily Deal. I had the book in print on my TBR mountain but donated it to my HS Media Center. I find that I prefer to read on my Kindle these days and my students will have a new book too.

Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta joins Finnikin of the Rock on my Kindle. I am waiting to get deals on the whole series before I begin reading.
I got both Stork and Flock by Wendy Delsol. I know I am missing the middle book in this series but it wasn't on sale! I had previously had a print copy of Stork but it went to my HS Media Center in one of my TBR mountain purges. I have to purge a few times a year because I have limited shelf space. Since I work at the HS Media Center, I figure if I ever get a chance to read something I purged, it will still be there for me to check out.
Lastly, I "purchased" Mindspeak by Heather Sunseri and Every Little Piece by Kate Ashton. Both were and still are free.

Here are the ones I added to my review stack:
Mila 2.0: Renegade by Debra Driza (Edelweiss, May 13)
The Things You Kiss Goodbye by Leslie Connor (Edelweiss, June 24)
Vivian Divine Is Dead by Lauren Sabel (Edelweiss, June 3)
On the Fence by Kasie West (Edelweiss, July 1)
The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynn Anderson (Edelweiss, July1)
Wild by Alex Mallory (Edelweiss, July 8)
The still coverless Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper (Edelweiss, Sept. 23)

Gideon's Spear by Darby Karchut - Darby felt bad that I had not received a review copy of this book. So she sent me an autographed finished copy. I should get to it early in March. It was released on Feb. 4.
Hexed by Michelle Krys (NetGalley, June 10)
Caged Warrior by Alan Lawrence Sitomer (NetGalley, May 13)

What did you add to your stack this week?


  1. OOh The Vanishing Season! Sooo want to read that one but Edelweiss has rejected me for it like four times already! Don't think they like me for some reason. Pretty much all my requests get denied and I don't get it. I've updated my profile to include blogger stats but they still reject me.

    Hope you enjoy all your new reads!
