New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {53}

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)

A few pretties came through my mailbox this week! 
 For review: 
More Than This by Patrick Ness
I've heard amazing things about this author, so I'm very excited about this afterlife story. 
Black Spring by Alison Croggon
This looks really good---love this cover. I don't know if I could have read it if they'd kept the aussie cover for it. It was too creeeepy for me!
The Kingdom of Little Wounds by Susann Cokal
OK, with an epically gorgeous cover like this, I will be very sad if the story within is any less than...well, epic

Witches in Tudor England!! SO very excited for this one!

Many thanks to Candlewick and my lovely Amy for these!
