New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {121}

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 what's new on my shelf this week:
For Review: 
Super excited to Jackson Pearce take on MG! :)
Ack, I didn't realize this was a sequel when I accepted this one for review..will have to track down book one. 
This looks so fun and right up my alley! Many thanks to the author for offering a gorgeous signed hardcopy! 

Many thanks to Bloomsbury, St. Martins, and Gregory Funaro for these! 

Well, I'm going to skip the usual weekly rundown, because I only posted once for Waiting on Wednesday. I've gone and caught a horrible cold or allergies or something completely hiddeous.  UGH my whole head is in pain, but especially my eyes so I haven't been reading much at all either. Just sleeping and watch copious amounts of Dr Who, Fixer Upper, and Graham Norton when I can stand to have my eyes open.  Lots of tea (my lovely daughter brings home a yummy blend from work at Teavana that actually helps congestion) and lots of rest and I'm sure to be all fixed up soon.  

I hope you all had a more enjoyable week! :D


  1. I love the cover from Alistair's Grim's Odditorium - and what a fun title too. I'm sorry to hear you feel so bad. I hope it gets better soon *hugs*

    Oh no! Feel better! My allergies have been acting up too. Tis the season! I hope you enjoy all your books....definitely interested in Grim's Odditorium!

  4. Loop was pretty good (the first book to Twist). I just read it in February. I love books with time travel in it plus Bree is at a boarding school which I love too and it ended on a cliffhanger, of course!

  5. Alistair Grim's Odditorium looks like a a fun read!
    Tea and Dr Who sound like the perfect way to spend a week when you're not feeling well. I hope you feel better soon!

  6. Oh, no! I hope you are feeling better. I hate it when congestion effects my eyes. I love the cover of Odditorium. It's so lovely. Great haul!

  7. YAY for such gorgeous books :D And aw, I really want a pretty hardcover of Odditorium too.. so jealous, hah. <3 You are awesome :) And yay for Double Cross! I think it looks so cute :D Hoping it is so. <3 Anyway. I hope you will love all these amazing books Becky :D Happy reading sweetie. <3 But aww :( I am so so sorry that you have been sick this week. Hugs. <3 I hope it will be done very shortly; that you will feel lots better right away :)

  8. Great haul! Double Cross sounds like a pretty fun read. I hope you enjoy everything!

  9. Great haul, Becky. I hope you feel better soon, I always struggle with allergies this time of the year and they're so severe that I mistake it for a horrible cold.

  10. Aw, no! I hope you're feeling better by now! Teavana tea is wonderful--I'm pretty jealous that y'all have one.

    I have a copy of Loop, the first book in Karen Akins' series, and it sounds good, so I hope you like it!
