New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {129}

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)
New goodies on my shelf this week:
 Traded for:
Hover by Melissa West
Want to track down the last book and then read them all at once! 
Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby 
 I've been wanting to read this author for a while now. And this looks really good.

For review: 
The Uninvited by Cat Winters
*swoon* Love Cat Winters and can't wait to read this.  
The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts by K.C. Tansley
Time travel, ghosts, and murder mystery. Of course I accepted this for review! 
The Good Girls by Sara Shepard
I'm not sure I'll read this one, but my daughter has already disappeared with it!
The Leveller by Julia Durango  
This looks more interesting than I initially thought! 
Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway
This looks super cute and I've enjoyed Benway's writing before. 
Deadfall by Anna Carey
Talker 25: Invisible Monsters by Joshua McCune 
Both of these are sequels to books I haven't read yet, but they both look pretty good! 

Many thanks to Harper Collins, William Morrow,  & KC Tansley for the review books and to Skye for the trades! :D

The Weekly Nutshell:  
{Monday} What's New: June YA Release List & Giveaway
{Tuesday} Waiting on Wednesday: Pull by Anne Riley 
{Saturday} Review: Rook by Sharon Cameron 

 I feel like I've had so little time to read lately! My youngest turned 10 this week. Nooo...he still needs to be my baby. *sigh*  So lots of birthday stuff going on all week. :)  When I do find the time, I'm reading Siren's Fury, which is so good, and next up is likely going to be Game of Love and Death. I read the first three chapters when a copy came through at work and I'm already in love with the writing. So can't wait. 
Also ALA San Francisco is just around the corner!  Anyone going? I am so excited to have a conference that I don't have to travel so far to this year!  It's a mere hour away! And finally I won't be the only one from my library at a library conference! :D So that should be fun! 

Have a great week, everyone..and happy reading!
