New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {41}

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)

Well, I am sitting here typing as fast as I can, the thunder and lightning is raging outside my window, and I'm hoping to get this post done and up before the power goes out!! :D 

Here's what I got this week:

For review:
decided to grab this one since I've really enjoyed Zadoff's work before.

Must know Maxon's backstory! :)

Loved Whispers in Autumn, book 1 to this series (reviewed here) Looking forward to more!

 The Weekly Nutshell:

That's all for this week!  I've been on the verge of sick the past few days---my system doesn't seem to want to decide if I have cold or not.  I'm voting no, but I'm not sure head and nose are listening. Furthermore, my youngest pulled his neck while jumping in a bounce house.  Ugh.  Word to the wise---keep your kids away from those things!  The ER nurse said she sees SO many kids come in injured from bounce houses.  He was looking pretty sad and pathetic in his little whiplash collar. :( You live, you learn, I guess.  

Have a great week, everyone!
And to those who celebrate it...Happy Easter! :D


  1. Well I hope next week is much better, and that your body starts agreeing with you! I've read The Prince. Beware, it may make you want to reread The Selection.
    Happy reading!

  4. I loved the selection and I can't wait to read a little bit more about Maxon, and get me ready for The Elite. Enjoy!

  6. Ooh, I like the sound of The Prince ! I'll have to look at for that. Happy reading!

  7. Whiplash? That sucks. I had no idea. Thanks for the tip.

  8. I read whispers in autumn a while ago and thought it was pretty interesting! I love the covers, they're beautiful!
