New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {104}

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)

Got some stuff that I'm really excited about this week!! :D 
 I don't know how this one flew under my radar, because I loved When the Sea is Rising Red. Such a bizarre but absolutely stunning story.  I was so glad to find this sequel! :)

For Review: 
 Teenage Lois Lane solving her first mystery as a reporter?? YES.
Looks so good! A high fantasy about a pregnant young woman on a mission to rescue her kidnapped twin sisters and a prophecy linked to her unborn child. 

Many thanks to Switch Press & Quercus for the review copies!!

The Weekly Nutshell: 
{Wednesday} Waiting on Wednesday: Miss Mayhem
{Thursday} Review: Stray by Elissa Sussman

It was a slow week here at Stories & Sweeties, and in non-bookish life I'm SO ready for October...September just kind of knocked me on my butt.  Luckily we're getting a little bit of Fall here to lift my spirits...we had thunderstorms and a little rain yesterday, two of my favorite things :) Keep it coming, weather fairies. ;)
I finished Trial by Fire, SO GOOD and somehow exactly what I was in the mood for. Now I'm halfway through Illusions of Fate---I haven't read any of Kiersten White's books since the Paranormalcy series and I completely forgot how much I enjoy reading her fun, always humorous writing style. Reviews on both of those to come!

I wish everyone hours and hours of uninterrupted reading time this week (including myself! LOL)


  1. I'm currently reading Illusions Of Fate too, about 200 pages in. Hadn't ever heard of Cat He'll is on but I'm adding her books to my TBR.

  2. Your new books are all new to be. I hope you love all of them.
