New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {19}

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!

My haul for the week:

For Review:

For review (cont.):

For Feature/Giveaway:
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
Emma by Jane Austen
I'll be featuring the gorgeous Classic Lines series from Sterling Publishing and giving one of these away, so keep an eye out for that! 

Many thanks to Random House and Sterling Publishing!
