New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {106}

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)

My poor mailman and UPS guy were busy this week! I got a few others, but left out any duplicates to save time, as I'm posting this pretty late...or rather early AM.  ZZzzz... :)

These four pretty much elicited one long happy dance from me. :D
 These all look really interesting, but I think I'm most excited for Knightly & Son! I'll have to track down the first book, but it just looks like a fun MG series!
Many thanks to HMH, Macmillan, Algonquin, Random House, Bloomsbury, and Harper for all these wonderful goodies!

The weekly nutshell:
{Tuesday} Waiting on Wednesday: The Creeping
{Wednesday} Review: Trial by Fire

{Thursday} Old Books, New Looks 
{Friday} Review: Illusions of Fate 

This week I read The Opal Crown and started The Cure for Dreaming.  Just like the first book, Princess  in the Opal Mask, book two is fantastic.  Seriously, if you haven't tried this series yet, YOU MUST. It's so freaking good.  Cure for Dreaming is starting off so good and I'm trying to pace myself so I don't zip through it without savoring! :D
Someone tell me why I live in a place where its 90 degrees still. Where is my Fall, people?? Sigh. 
Have a lovely week, all! :)


  1. OH! Dies. <3 Hope you will end up loving The Cure for Dreaming :) But omg. The Winner's Crime! Dies. <3 I want it so badly. Sniffs. And Mortal Heart :D I loved it. So much. And The Walls Around Us. SO GOOD. So jealous of your print copy :) Sigh. So much awesome. <3 Happy reading Becky :) I am THE MOST jealous about your heat. So unfair. Here it is -1C outside.. freeeeezing.

  2. Yay for Mortal Heart. That's been my favorite of the His Fair Assassin series. And I think that says a lot since both Grave Mercy and Dark Triumph were awesome! Hope you enjoy your new books. I still need to read The Winner's Curse. Happy reading!

    I can't wait to read The Opal Crown, I loved the first book! Excited for The Winner's Crime too - hope you enjoy it! I recently finished Clariel and I really liked it. Not as amazing as the original series, but definitely a good book. Happy reading! :)

  5. I LOVEDLOVEDLOVED Mortal heart. Perfect conclusion to one of my favorite series. I can't wait for The winner's crime. You are so lucky for getting an ARC. I didn't like The Jewel though :( Happy reading!

  6. Wow, that's one amazing haul! I want The Winner's Crime so badly, I need to know what happens next!!!! :) I also really like the look of They All Fall Down. I hope you enjoy all of your reads this week :) Here's my STS.

  7. Gorgeous haul! I wished they kept The Winner's Crime cover this way, the typography sits so well and the dress doesn't look too photoshopped like the new cover.
