New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {120}

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 the fun stuff that landed on my doorstep this week! :)
 A lovely package from Bloomsbury!
Women Who Broke the Rules:  Sacajawea & Judy Blume by Kathleen Krull
How fantastic are these!  
This cover gives me chills and  the story sounds intense!   
This looks like it's going to be a tearjerker. Hopefully a good one, though!  

This week I read Burning Kingdoms and, while I planned to read Miss Mayhem next, I found myself drawn to picking up Beastkeeper, so that's what I'm reading now. :) Then there are two books I have to read on a deadline, so most likely those are up next. I'm excited for both though, so that's good! But *sigh* someday soon I'll get to Miss Mayhem!  Beastkeeper has a very good fairy tale vibe though, and I'm enjoying it so far. 
Not much else going on this week, except that my car has died on me. UGH :(  A month before I was planning to get a new one. Double-UGH.  It's going to be an interesting next few weeks.
Have a great week, everyone!
