New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {7}

For New Shelf Goodies, I'll be showing you what lovely books I acquired this week, whether from publishers, or the library, or from whatever half-crazed book-buying binge I happened to go on. :D (Inspired by Alea @ Pop Culture Junkie's This Week in Books posts) The Weekly Nutshell will be just week here at Stories & Sweeties, in a nutshell. (inspired by Ginger @ GReads and her recaps at the end of the TGIF posts) Note: This is not a meme, but I'll be hopping around to IMMs, Stack the Shelves, Book Hauls, or whatever other book-loot sharing posts I come across!

Here's what I got this week!
For review:
Eve & Adam by Michael Grant & Katherine Applegate
This one sounds fun--plus, a husband and wife writing team! Cool!

Crewel by Gennifer Albin
Very excited for this one---the story surrounding the Guild of Spinsters sounds fantastic!

Rapture by Lauren Kate
Body & Soul by Stacey Kade
The final books in two of my favorite series!! OH, I will be so sad to see these both end!

Thanks to Macmillan for the review books!

The Weekly Nutshell:
{Monday} Review: Book of Blood & Shadow
{Tuesday} Waiting on Wednesday: Whispers in Autumn by Trisha Leigh
{Wednedsay} Book/Movie News: Rise of the Guardians
{Friday} Cover Story
{Saturday} Review: Pxyis by K.C. Neal

Things are finally starting to slow down here--it was a relaxing week and it was nice to finally get some blogging and reading done! A few more quiet days and then it's time to prepare for my road trip to Southern Cali for ALA! Yay! :D

Have a great week everyone!
