New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {38}

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)

Here's what I aquired this week!
 For review:
Spellcaster by Claudia Gray-finished copy (my review)
Linked by Imogen Howsen  
Requiem by Lauren Oliver-finished copy
Delirium Stories: Hana, Annabel, & Raven by Laren Oliver 

Super excited about Linked and to have a lovely finished copy of Requiem! I was pretty suprised to see Delirium Stories in print...for some reason I thought those stories were going to be ebook only.  Yay! :D

Many thanks to Simon  & Schuster and HarperTeen for these!

 The Weekly Nutshell:
{Friday} Becky's View: Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson
So I've decided to try out Intense Debate with CommentLuv and see how I like it on my own site. I love how it works on other's sites with being able to see the commenter's last post, but I'm not sure I've ever seen it work with blogger.  So here goes nothing!! Let me know what you think!
Have a great book-filled week, everyone! :D 

*Update* ok so apparently Intense Debate doesn't like me. LOL It was there one second and now it's not.  It seems to have lost some comments and for that I apologize! :( I reverted back to the blogger comment format. All better now!


  1. How lucky. I am so jealous. I love the Delirium series and Requim sounds really good. Though I still need to read Pandemonium. Happy Reading.

    PS. I'd love it if you checked out my blog.

  2. Linked! I can't wait for that book to come out :D Happy reading


  3. I'm dying to read Linked! It sounds so good. Really looking forward to its release day. The finished copy of Requiem is so pretty!

  4. I need to start the Delirium series. I adore the covers and the series sounds super interesting. Loving the concept.

    Happy reading to you!

  5. I need to get caught up on the Delirium series. I hope Requiem is good! I also want to read Linked - I'll keep my eyes out for your review. Enjoy all of your books!

  6. That is nice that they are publishing the e-books in print for the Delirium series. I still haven't read Requiem. Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer sounds kind of interesting.

  7. I really should read Requiem. I liked Delirium but didn't continue on with the series. Finishing series should be a reading goal of mine. I NEED closure. Come see what I got at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  8. I'm going to have to get Delirium Stories. I need more of that world! Enjoy! My STS

  9. SPELLCASTER!!! I cannot wait to get a copy of this one!
    Requiem is SO good! Love that last page :)

    Happy reading!!!

  10. Linked does look good! I hope you enjoy it!

    I tried to do Intense Debate w/Comment Luv. Failed. Good luck to you!

  11. Linked is at the top of my TBR - I can't wait to see what you think of it as well as Spellcaster. I thought the delirium stories were only going to be ebook only as well, I am glad they aren't. I wish more series would publish it in a book... it's so expensive for a 40 page book. Atleast the print copy makes it worth it! I hope you enjoy all your books!!!

  12. They're beautiful... they're beautiful IT'S TRUE! Lol I really want to read Spellcaster!!

    Happy reading :)

  14. Linked & Spellcaster sound really good! Happy reading :D


  15. OMG I think I am just absolutely IN LOVVEEE with Linked's cover! Like, legit. I love it, especially how everything just goes together so perfectly! And I really hope you lovelovelove Requiem! I've heard a few iffy things about it, but it does sound like it's going to be so epic!

  16. Gorgeous set of books. Happy reading!
