New Shelf Goodies, The Weekly Nutshell & Blogoversary Winners announced!!

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!

Just one for me again this week! 
 For review: 
I was super excited for this one after seeing the author describe it as "teen sleuth with a hint of a ghost story and more than a smidgen of kissing".  Yes, please!!
Many thanks to Hachette UK for this one!
