New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {79}

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 sweet surprises this week!
For Review:
Zevin's work always has a bit of the bizarre going on...she's a favorite of mine!
This one's recently been recovered, and I love the sound of the story.
This author's work always seems fun and sweet and a premise to do with grandparents! This looks really cute. 
Always wanted to try this author's work and this is, I believe, her first MG. Looks really good!

Thanks to Algonquin Books & Bloomsbury USA for these!

Have a great week, everyone!
