New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {24}

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!

Away we go:

Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick
I still need to read book 3, but daughter would revolt if I didn't buy this now. :)

For Review:
 So. freaking. EXCITED!

Any major fans of this series out there? I'd like to get them into the hands of someone who really loves Vampire Diaries!

The Big Splash & The Quick Fix by Jack D. Ferraiolo
I've never heard of this one before, but it looks like a cute series.  I may pass these on to one of my favorite middle grade reviewers. Looks like something he would love. :)

Huge lovely thanks to Little Brown, HarperTeen, & Abrahms for these! 

The Weekly Nutshell: 

 Have a fanastic week! :D  Link me up to your new goodies!

  15. You should be excited. YOU GOT DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT. And I hear from most people that's really good news. (I'm not someone THAT enthused for it, but it's still exciting nonetheless.) Dude, ENJOY.

    Your daughter loves Hush, Hush? Is that what you are insinuating by mentioning her? That's... that's... SO CUTE. I love that your daughter likes to read the same books as you. My mom only reads gay erotica or GBLT YA. Oops. Maybe I shouldn't have admitted that for everyone to read xD
