New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {76}

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)

Got a few goodies this week!
Went to Marissa's signing and it was amazing! She is so fun to hear speak and meet in person!

For Review:
So incredibly excited for this one!!
These all came in a lovely box of Random House goodness! A couple of these are doubles for me, so I'll be passing them on, but I'm happy to have a finished copy of The Glass Casket and Pieces of Me looks really good---hadn't heard much about it before this!

Here's the fun swag they gave out at Marissa Meyer's signing. I love my "Thorne is my Captain" pin!! And the purple comb to go with the Rapunzel theme is perfect! 
 I'll be talking more about the event later this week, and giving away two signed ARCs of Cress, so watch out for that! 

The Weekly Nutshell:

{Thursday} Blog Tour: The Glass Casket Review + Giveaway

It's finally raining here (thanks for sending it, Juju! LOL), and today is finally a day I get to enjoy it, no work, nowhere to go, just reading on the couch right next to my big window so I can look out at the rain. Love that.  This call for hot chocolate. 
Happy reading, all!


  1. Nice haul! I've seen Cress on several lists and you have some awesome swag from the signing. I hope to start that series soon! Happy reading!

  2. Looks like we got the same package from Random House! I already read The Glass Casket and Pieces of Me, and they're great reads! I hope you enjoy them :)

  3. You are so lucky to get Kiss of Deception. Good haul of books. Thanks for visiting my STS.


  4. Oh snap! Kiss of Deception sounds so good. I just want to snatch it off the screen and start reading it now. July 15 is still so very far away! I hope it's as good as it sounds though.

  5. Ooh! Cress! Cress! I adore it! I didn't get a comb though since I don't live in the USA. But still. :) *hugs copy* I hope you liked it! My StS!

  6. Ahh, Cress. <3 Such a perfect book. SO JEALOUS that you got to meet Marissa :D I would love to meet her someday. Sigh. And ohh. Very jealous of The Kiss of Deception. I hope you enjoy it :D Happy reading sweetie. <3

  7. Awww, isn't Marissa fun?? I went to one last year when Scarlet came out and am so sad she's not coming close enough to me to go again this year. It seems like everyone got The Kiss of Deception this week! It sounds SO awesome. :) I hope you had a relaxing day Becky!

  9. The Glass Casket looks so good. Kiss of Deception sounds really interesting, too. So I still totally need to read Cinder (I know, I know), but everyone I know--everyone--is so excited for Cress. Great haul and happy reading!
