New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {44}

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 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)

Soooo, some lovely new goodies this week, including these books:

For review:
(keep an eye out, Jane Austen fans.  I'm going to be giving one of these away soon!)
Superheros! I took a peek in this one as soon as it hit my the writing so far!
This one came unsolicited, and it didn't really looks like something I would enjoy. I'll be putting out a "books to trade" list soon and it will most likely be on there, if you're interested!
This week, I also bought this vintagey-looking library cart, that I am currently in love with.

 Ikea, people...I love that this place can still surprise me with little treasures.   WAY cooler that the ugly books carts we use at work, I can tell you that much!  (ignore the bottom of the bookshelves please LOL, we're currently replacing all the baseboard in my house!) 

The Weekly Nutshell: 
{Friday} Review of Apollyon by Jennifer L. Armentrout (needs some comment love!)

So I was a bit of a lazy blogger this week, I guess.  Behind the scenes, I was reading away (Apollyon, The Shadow Girl, and started End Games my T. Michael Martin).  I DNFed one book (Nameless by Lili St. Crow---just couldn't get into the writing style or the characters) and finally went through all my books and made a list of books to trade. List will be up later today, so come back and take a peek if you'd like to do some tradin'! 

Happy reading, everyone!
