Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews and is a meme for sharing books you've purchased, borrowed, or been sent for review. They can be physical or e-format. I went just a little overboard this week in review books this week, because of SummerTeen. SummerTeen is an online conference of sorts, mainly for librarians, where we can chat with authors, publishers, and attend webinars to count for continuing education credit. School Library Journal hosts the event and several publishers help sponsor the event, so that librarians can attend for free! These publishers have some of their authors come and chat with librarians and the publishers also giveaway free egalleys. My favorite part was the keynote speaker, Tamora Pierce, who was amazing!
I participated in the Hot Summer Reads Read-a-thon and won Jen @ YA Romantics prize of a $15 gift card to Amazon. I purchased Game by Barry Lyga. I am listening to the audio for review for SLJ, and I love having the print copy to follow along and to spell names correctly. The first book gave me nightmares, so I am sure this one will too!

So thanks to Jen and Jennifer!

Review from Netgalley: This was the big haul from SummerTeen. Thanks to Little, Brown Books, Penguin Young Readers, Putnam Juvenile, Candlewick Press, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Children's Books, Disney-Hyperion, and Netgalley for these great titles! I was really excited to get Hero by Althea Kontis, because I really liked Enchanted. I also got to participate in a chat with Jennifer Lynn Barnes and now I really want to read The Naturals!
