New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {114}

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)

I was away on birthday vacation last week :) So this haul is for the past two weeks:
For review:
Novice by Taran Matharu (!!! So excited!!)

Many thanks to Macmillan, Harper Collins, and Bloomsbury for these lovelies!

The Weekly Nutshell: 

{Wednesday} Waiting on Wednesday: Another Day
 {Thursday}  Review: When by Victoria Laurie
{Friday} Cover Story

Everyone have a great couple of weeks?  Hubby and I had birthdays last week (his is the day before mine), so we ran away to the beaches of Monterey Bay, one of our favorite places to escape to. :) So so pretty there and such yummy places to eat!  This week I read When and I'm finishing up Storm Siren (I had to stop reading it to get When in for a deadline...which I hate to do but it was ok since When was a fun quick read). Next up is Save Me and either When My Heart Was Wicked or A Wicked Thing...or maybe Beastkeeper. LOL will have to let my mood decide!  Oh but it all may be completely derailed when I get my hands on Fairest this week! I'll be running to the store on Tuesday to get my grabby hands on a copy!! 

Have a great week, everyone! :D


  1. Happy belated birthday to you and your husband! I see Lion heart there and AHH, I seriously can't wait to read that book :D Happy reading!
