New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {88}

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)

I didn't do a book haul post last week, so this is what I got the last two weeks:
For review:
Been wanting to try out this author's work!
 Creepy tree trunk of grabby hands...such a bizarre but awesome cover!
Love the sound of this one, and I enjoyed this author's last book.
 Wizards and faeries and old eccentric aunts...this looks FUN!
I'm going to be binge-reading this series in June! I can't wait!
 Link and Ridley finally get their chance at the spotlight! :)

Many thanks to Macmillan, Penguin, Scholastic, Harper and Little, Brown!

The Weekly Nutshell: 
{Monday} Meet you on Monday
{Tuesday} Waiting on Wednesday: Gates of Thread and Stone
{Thursday} Review: Dead Silent by Sharon Jones 

 Hope everyone had a great week! 


  1. So many amazing covers here! Inland, Lailah and The Girl Who Never Was caught my eye before but I'm going to wait until I see more reviews of them before I read them.

    Happy Sunday!

  4. I have Strange and Ever After too. Funny enough I still haven't read Something Strange and Deadly yet though. Have a great week!

  7. Inland sounds good! Lailah has a creepy cover. Happy reading :D

  8. Ohh. Such gorgeous books :D I cannot wait to read Firebug. <3 Looks so awesome. Sigh. I hope you will love all these books sweetie :) Happy reading. <3

  9. Great haul! I just started reading Dangerous Creatures, I've missed this world so much! Can't wait to get deeper into Ridley and Link's new adventure!
    Enjoy your new reads :)

  10. Ooh, I'm so curious about Inland! It sounds so intriguing! And I need to binge read Susan Dennard's books too! I've only read the first one, but I remember very little, aside from liking it. :) Happy reading!!

  11. Oh, good, you got Inland. Don't you love it when you get something you just featured on a WoW? So awesome. I love the cover for Strange Ever After, but haven't read the other books in the series. I hope you love them all!
