New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {90}

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)

Here's what I got this week: 
 For review:
 A World Without Princes by Soman Chainani
So many great reviews of this series, I can't wait to dive in!
Divided by Elsie Chapman
I didn't hear much about book one, does anyone recommend it?
Hexed by Michelle Krys
Seeing mixed reviews of this, but still excited to try it!
Bad Luck Girl by Sarah Zettel
Now that the full series is out, I'm excited to read this series all at once!
The Strange Maid by Tessa Gratton
Sounds like an interesting mix of mythology and modern world. Such an eerie cover, too!

Thank you Harper & Random House for these!

The Weekly Nutshell: 

So who else played the nightly game of "Lemme look at all the BEA tweets and book hauls!"? :D  It looked like such a great time and oooh, there were some lovely treasures. 
School is out for my little guy now, so things may be a bit slow around here while we settle into Summer vacation.  Just under 4 weeks now until ALA14!  Anyone else going to fry with me in the Vegas heat?? :D


  1. I want to get a copy from A world without princes too. It sounds so good and I love the cover :D Happy reading!

  2. Just seeing all the stacks of books from BEA I was able to add several new books to my TBR that I had not heard of yet.

  3. I just order the school of good and evil!Nice haul.

    Here is My WOW

  4. Yeah.. BEA. So damn jealous of everyone who got to go there :D So unfair that I live in Norway, lol. Anyway. Lots of amazing books this week sweetie :D Yesss. A World Witout Princes. <3 Book two. But omg. I just recently read those two books, and I loved them so much. Sigh. So good. I hope and think you will love them too :)

    Awesome books this week! I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Hexed…not sure if I should read that one or not. I am so jealous of everyone at BEA. I have never been. Enjoy your summer vacation! :)

  7. I have a friend who adores the first book by Elsie Chapman, Dualed, and she convinced me to pick up a copy. I haven't read it yet. :) I've been meaning to pick up my copy of School for Good and Evil and get that read. I looove the cover for A World Without Princes! :)
