New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {93}

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)

New shelf goodies:
Find Me Where the Water Ends by Rachel Carter
 Thorn Jack looks really interesting, based on a Scottish fairy tale. I haven't started the other two series, but they are both series that I've been wanting to read!

The Weekly Nutshell: 

Nothing much going on this past week, besides last minutes prep for our trip to ALA Vegas. Very excited but dreading the weather since I pretty much wilt in hot weather. Still, SO excited to be going. I'm just about done with the second book in the Something Strange and Deadly series---love the second even more than the first! A rare thing with series! :D

Have a great week everyone! :)


  1. You're right! I like the size of Thorn Jack too :) Makes it feel a bit different!

  2. YAY for Deliverance :D I have the eARC, hih. <3 (But I have yet to read book two. Hmph. But planning on reading all three in July, most likely. <3) Awesome books this week sweetie. I hope you love them all :D Vegas! Jealous. Have fun :D

    Thorn Jack looks cool…I will have to check that one out. I am so jealous you are going to ALA. Have a blast….I love Vegas. Enjoy your books!

  4. Thorn jack looks interesting, I haven't heard much about this one before. Happy reading :)!

  5. I own the first two books for CJ Redwine and Rachel Carter, which means I better get reading if the third in each series is coming out.

  6. Eee, so jealous you're going to ALA! One day I'm going to get my butt to one of those conferences! One day! :) And I bet you're going to have the best time!

    Thorn Jack looks interesting! All fairy tale adaptations appeal. :) I haven't read the second book in CJ Redwine's series, but I liked the first! ;) Have a great week Becky!

  7. They all look so beautiful! Enjoy the books you got. :)
