New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {31}

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!

So these are actually my goodies for the last two weeks:
For Review:
Lovely finished copy - so I'll be giving away my ARC! Reading this now and loving it!

Such awesome things coming out from Harper this year!

Sequel to Mist, which was a fun british MG that I loved!  Can't wait to see what happens next!

Huge thanks to Abrams, Harper Collins, and Hodder Children's for these!!

The Weekly Nutshell: 

Hope everyone had a fantastic holiday!  Ours was a blast with lots of noise and toys everywhere and yummy cookies and fudge! My kids are still on winter break so I'll be in and out of the blog for another week or so! And we've officially started counting the days until ALA midwinter in Seattle, WA!! Anyone else going?? 


  1. Splintered and Impostor are two books that I'm dying to read, and I'm intrigued now about Mila 2.0.
    Happy New Year Becky!

  2. Oh wow, you've got some great books this week! :D Mila 2.0 looks incredible, I'm so jealous. ^.^ And the cover for Splintered is GORGEOUS! :D

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. ^.^

  7. Awesome book week! I can't wait to read Mila 2.0 and Splintered was AMAZING! I hope you enjoy them all!

  8. Eep! I'm waving my arms around like a crazy person for Imposter. Can't wait to read what you think of it. Crash and Burn looks pretty amazing too. Happy reading!

  9. Oooh, you got Impostor! I can't wait to read that one. I thought Slide was so much fun! :)

  10. Now, I'm kind of feeling Mila 2.0 whereas before I DID NOT. It's just something about it now that's calling my name but now... it's too late. Which means this comment can only end in tears, so I will just close by saying CONGRATS ON ALL THE PRETTIES. they look all to awesome :D

  11. Those are some really pretty Harper titles you got there! :P Happy reading!

  12. OMG I loved Mila 2.0! It was so epically great and I definitely recommend it for sci fi fans! :D And I really hope you love Crash and Burn! I didn't really like it as much, so I hope you have better luck! And I have heard THE BEST things about Pretty Girl - 13 ! And OMG isn't Splintered's cover SO AMAZING BEAUTIFUL? I want to buy it just because of the cover!

    Have an amazing New Year!! :D And enjoy your epic titles!

  13. You really rocked the book haul this week! I may have to add a few to my TBR list! Enjoy and I look forward to your reviews!
