New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {92}

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 small but fun haul this week, especially excited for Witch Hunt---loved the first book! 
 For review:

Thanks to Abrams and Hodder Children's for these!!

The Weekly Nutshell: 
{Monday} Review: Dangerous Creatures
{Tuesday} Waiting on Wednesday: Jackaby
{Thursday} Cover Story

Another mad week! I think I have to face facts and stop calling a three-post week a "slow week"...I think that is just all life is allowing me to do right now! With everyone home and Father's day and vacation coming up and work and all the madness.  To push to do more would be pressure, and pressure leads to unhappy blogging. So three posts it is lol (well, actually four, including New Shelf Goodies, but I never count those in the recaps). 

This week I read Creature of Moonlight, which was lovely---full review to come this week. And I've started my binge-read of the Something Strange and Deadly series. Loving it so far! 
What are you reading this week? Be sure to link me up to your haul posts! I love seeing them!

    Oooh Witch Hunt! I haven't read the first book yet but a lot of people seem to be loving this series. Enjoy! And binge reads are definitely the best - I've been meaning to read the Something Strange and Deadly series as well, so I might take a leaf out of your book! Happy reading :).

  2. 3/4 posts a week is great if you ask me! Yolo.. I hate that word, haha. Happy reading :)

  3. Witch Hunt has such a pretty cover. I really like the colors of the book.

  5. I liked A Creature of Moonlight too and had a chance to meet the author a while back. I have a few series on my stack that I should do binge reading for too. Enjoy your week. Come see what I got this week at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. Happy reading!

  6. I'm finally reading Champion and finishing the Legend series. It's really good so far.

  7. Great haul! I've finally gotten around to posting a book haul on my second blog!

  8. Yay :D Gorgeous books. <3 (I was going to get a copy of Witch Hunt, but it didn't arrive with the two other books. Hmm. Hoping it might show up, even so. <3 As I did buy book one myself, hih :D) Hoping I will love book one, as I remember you loving it. <3 ANYWAY. Fingers crossed you will love the sequel :) Happy reading. <3

  11. Aw, fun books this week! I read the first couple of Internet Girls books WAY back when I was in... middle school I want to say? It's so fun that she's writing another one after so long! AH! I need to binge the last two Something Strange and Deadly books! I loved the first one. :D Have a great week Becky!
