New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {116}

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)

Two new lovelies graced my doorway this week!
 For review:
Haven't read this series---anyone know if they can be read individually?

Eep!  So gorgeous inside and out, and I can't wait to find out Levana's story!!  

Slow week around here! Was a bit sick for part of the week, and I also realized a mix-up with a review deadline that I thought wasn't until later in the month so I had to drop what I was reading and fit in something else...whoopsie! :D  Luckily, what I had to squeeze in has proven a fast and fun story---Conspiracy of Us, very much enjoying this one and almost done. I'm just hoping I can remember what was going on in A Wicked Thing when I go back to it LOL.  I have to admit, it's been kind of losing me on and off. But it's pretty good. Next up after that will be When My Heart was Wicked and Sin Eater's Daughter.  :)

Hoping with two holidays coming up---my library is closed this Thursday and then again on Monday---that it will mean a few days of extra reading and blogging time! Maybe? Please?? LOL Keep your fingers crossed for me. There are so many good books that I want to be reading right NOW. :D


  1. Oh I wish I had requested The Sin Eater's Daughter when it was available! I hope you love it!

  6. I can't wait to read The Shadow Cabinet but yshould start at the beginning with The Name of The Star. It's a really good series and the second book, The Madness Underneath left me hanging. So yes, I'm antsy to get my hands on this one! Hope you enjoy them all! Here's ours: BiblioJunkies Happy Reading! ~ Bel
