New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {48}

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)

Here's what I got this week:
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! That is all.
 Thank you, my dear! (you know who you are! lol)

For both of these: I die! I faint! I...happy dance!! 

For review: 
 This looks good--fun quirky characters.
OH I've been anticipating this one forever!
For Review (cont)
Lovely velvety finished copy :) I'm a sucker for those.
SO this author. 
Irresistable Frankie cover! Love!
This looks awesome, but holy cow--I was not expecting it to be almost 500 pages!
Eerie cover, eerie synopsis. Looks good!

For review (cont)
YES. I will read anything by Cat Patrick. 
Likewise for Lisa McMann...have loved all of her books! 
I came across this series in someone's recap post for TXLA and looked it up. Read the first few chapters and was immediately hooked!

Huge grateful bowing-down thanks to these publishers for sending these!! Macmillan, Flux Books, Random House/Delacorte, Penguin, Simon & Schuster, and Tate Publishing.

The Weekly Nutshell: 

Hope everyone had a great book week! I just have to say that I started Invisibility today by Levithan and Cremer---I was in love with both main characters within the first 20 pages.  Unless this goes terribly wrong somewhere in the end, I think I can safely predict this one is going to be a new favorite! :)
