New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {124}

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)
My new goodies for the last two weeks:
Such an interesting mix this week. So excited for Pip Bartlett---love the two authors and Maggie's illustrations! So fun! I'm most of the way through Seriously Wicked--it's a cute read. Check out the blog tour when it rolls through here on the 8th! The others are from an awesome Harper box; I don't know much about most of them but so excited to have a finished copy of Orphan Queen!!

Thanks to HarperCollins, Tor, & Scholastic for these!

The Weekly Nutshell
 Just getting back into the swing of things this week after our little vacation.  Last week we were in Texas and I had the absolute pleasure of attending TLA! Gah it was so awesome! :) So many great signings, memorable moments, and some much need time with my best friend. :) I'm going to do a recap this week and tell more about that, but yea--so fun! 
This week I read Love Fortunes & Other Disasters and most of Seriously Wicked. Both really cute and both have tour stops coming through here in early May, so look out for that!
