New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {9}

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!

This week, some lovely new goodies came:
For Review:
A Witch in Love by Ruth Warburton
Amy loved book one, so she's excited to review this one also!

Glow & Spark by Amy Kathleen Ryan
I've been wanting to get around to reading Glow for awhile now---now I can read both together!

Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
I've been literally counting the days until this one came out..and now it's finally here! The final cover is so gorgeous, but I wish they'd made it shinier!

Many thanks to St. Martin's Griffin & Hodder for the review books!

The Weekly Nutshell:

{Sunday} What's New: July YA Releases & Giveaway
{Tuesday}Waiting on Wednesday: Spellcaster by Claudia Gray
{Thursday} Once Blog Tour: An Interview with Anna Carey
{Friday} Review: The Repossession by Sam Hawksmoor

Hope everyone had a great week!
