New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {10}

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 & Tynga's Stacking the Shelves) 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 any other book haul-sharing posts I come across!

Just one lovely book this week!
Whispers in Autumn by Trisha Leigh
signed, and with a matching bookmark! :)

...and one fantastic e-book:

I haven't been accepting hardly any ebooks lately---for whatever reason, I just don't fall into the story the way I do with physical books, plus my nook is having some issues lately. But for Lucid, since it is the only form it will come in for awhile, I made an exception. I'll read it on my phone if I have to, but I adored Brightest Kind of Darkness so this was a must.

Many thanks to P.T. Michelle & Trisha Leigh for sending these for review!

The Weekly Nutshell:
{Sunday} Happy Book Birthday, Lucid by P.T. Michelle (and Giveaway!)
{Monday} Review: Dark Companion by Marta Acosta
{Tuesday} Waiting on Wednesday: Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black
{Thursday} Book Trailers: Dark Companion, So Close to You, & Something Strange & Deadly

I went to an awesome event this week at Books, Inc in San Francisco. It was an absolute blast, and I got to meet one of my absolute favorite authors, Malinda Lo. Guys, I have to admit I had a bit of a fangirl spaz-out moment. Look out for a recap of the event this coming week!

Have a great week, everyone...and happy reading! :D
