New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {118}

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 whats new on my shelf this week:
I am so excited for every single one of these!! :D 

Heaps of thanks to Penguin and Bloomsbury for these goodies! 

The Weekly Nutshell: 
{Tuesday} Waiting on Wednesday - Dreamland
 {Wednesday} Review + Giveaway: Storm Siren by Mary Weber

{Thursday} The Tragic Age Blog Tour Exerpt
{Friday} Witherwood Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

 Well not much to impart this week---except that Hubs and I are both feeling much better, thank goodness! This week I'm reading Sin Eater's Daughter and loving it so far. Next up is The Walls Around Us and I'm super excited about that. 
In TV-land, another season of Downton is coming to an end (sob!!) but actually a good friend of mine and I had ourselves a fun little tea party viewing of the finale and the Christmas special. It was such an incredible season!! *sigh*
Hubs and I have been watching Warehouse 13 and are sadly coming to the end of that, too.  SUCH a fun show---have you seen it?  Steampunkery, adventures involving historical and literary figures and artifacts (like Poe's notebook and quill, Alice's mirror, HG Wells' time machine, and a fun cast of characters. I love this show. What to watch next, though?? Any suggestions? May be time for a Doctor Who rewatch LOL. 

Have a great week, everyone! :D

    Saint Anything! Court of Thorns and Roses! OMG! You must be ecstatic! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on both. Wasn't Downton great this season? I watched ahead when I got the season five DVD for Christmas. I loved the second half of the season so much and the Christmas special. I am sad to see it go. I'm glad you enjoyed it too! Have a great week!

  2. Saint Anything! Want!!! Glad you are feeling better, Becky! :)

  3. Glad you're both feeling better! Lots of great books this week, I loved ACOTAR! Hope you do too - Sarah J. Maas just keeps writing amazing books. And Saint Anything! I am definitely looking forward to hearing what you think. Happy reading :).

  4. Great haul! Saint Anything sounds really good. I've only read 3 Sarah Dessen books but I really enjoyed all of them. A Court of Thorns and Roses also sounds so amazing; I can't wait for it to be released. I hope you enjoy all your books and thanks for sharing. :)
