New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {23}

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!

Got some cool stuff this week!
For Review:
Ok, nobody throw anything at me...I haven't read this series yet!  I will though---definitely soon. 

GAHH! So excited for this one.  Cover is so perfect..and it's about a genie!

Lauren Conrad Beauty and Starstruck by Lauren Conrad
This is a cool set.  The novel, not really my cup of tea so I'll probably be giving this away, but I love the beauty book and don't know think my 17-year-old and I can part with it! 

Many thanks to Penguin and HarperTeen for these wonderful books!

The Weekly Nutshell:
