New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {11}

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!

It was a very happy book week!

For Review:
Destiny by Gillian Shields
I may be passing this one on to some lucky fan of this series---its a fourth of a series I haven't read yet!
Sweet Shadows by Tera Lynn Childs
This is my second copy so I'll be passing this one on, too!
Drain You by M. Beth Bloom
This sounds like a fun read! Vampire story with a bit of humour :)
Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst
Eeeeep! Happy Dance! :D
Touching the Surface by Kimberly Sabatini
Happy dancing for this one, too! So very excited!
Blood Fever by Veronica Wolff
I've heard this is a good series and that it's easy to follow even if you have read the others! Yay!

Huge thanks to HarperTeen, Simon & Schuster, & Penguin for sending these for review!
