New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {87}

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)

This week's goodies:
For review:
This looks so good, and I'm eager to try this author's work. 
Vampires, magic, high fantasy---looks interesting!
I was planning to pass on this one, but I read a really great review of it this past week. Maybe...
Need to try out this series, I've heard mixed things. 
MG, I think? Coming of age story, set in the early 60s.

The Weekly Nutshell: 

I'm on vacation from my regular job this week! Not sure if that will mean I'll be around on the blog more or less LOL. Generally we take a week off every spring to get our yard and garden back in order. As I said before, I'm a terrible gardener, but none-the-less, zucchinis, cucumber, basil and few other things will be going in this week.  I'm so excited about the response to my new feature, Meet You on Monday!! I really hope you guys keep coming around for it and answering the questions I post! I want to get to know all of you more! :)  Super excited to be going to a signing for Morgan Matson and Jenny Han this week! Look for a recap later this week or next! 


  1. Enjoy your vacation :D! Mortal dangers sounds very cool. Happy reading!


  2. Bloodwitch is the only one of your titles that I don't know. It sounds really good. Enjoy your goodies this week.

    books of love

  3. I read We Are The Goldens and really liked it. At the core, it's about a relationship between two sisters and what would you do to protect the ones you love.

  4. Enjoy your vacation. We are still a little too cold and wet to do any gardening. I got Mortal Danger this week too. Bloodwitch also sounds really good. Come see what I got this week at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

  5. Mortal Danger and Bloodwitch look awesome! I read We Are the Goldens and really enjoyed it. I think it's worth the read! Nice haul this week and have fun on your vacation! :)

  6. I got The Lovely and the Lost this weed too (different cover!) I still need to read the first book, but I like the sound of the series. I think We Are Goldens could be good - I have it on my list!

    Enjoy the Jenny Han/Morgan Matson signing - should be fun!

  7. Enjoy your vacation. I am hoping to plan my veggie garden next weekend as well. Enjoy all of your books and the signing with Matson and Han…so jealous. Would love to meet both of them!

  8. Nice haul! Mortal danger sounds good. enjoy your books.
