New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {115}

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)

Here's my new goodies this week...I got a bit overloaded with stuff!
 For Review:
So many amazing books here. Most excited for Rebel Mechanics, Scarlett Undercover, Ice Breaker, and When My Heart was Wicked!! 

Needed book two after getting the 3rd for review!
Hubby loves this series so I grabbed these for him!
Eeeep! Will finally get to finished this awesome series!
(Oh, the joys of BookOutlet! I discovered this online store through Rachel's blog, and the prices are just amazing.) 

The Weekly Nutshell: 
{Wednesday} Waiting on Wednesday: Curious Tale of the In Between
 {Thursday}  Review: Monstrous
{Friday}First Impression Review: A Wicked Thing

So this week I'm reading A Wicked Thing and then on to When My Heart Was Wicked and then most likely Conspiracy of Us after that! Jeesh, so much good stuff coming out this year. And, of course, I spent part of the last few days stalking twitter for glimpses of all the lovelies being found at ALA in Chicago.   It looks like a wonderful time! 
I didn't go out and buy Fairest this week, though I was itching to have it in my little hands. put it on sale and then dangled an additional 20% off at me, so I couldn't pass up the awesome price. Hopefully it gets here sooooon! 

Happy reading, readers! :D
