New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {140}

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 graced by doorstep this week!
For Review:
Drift & Dagger by Kendal Kulper
A lovely finished copy! :D

From trades:
Never Never by Brianna R. Shrum
I've been dying for this Peter Pan retelling!

Trying to collect this series because Hubby wants to read it ;)
The Infinite by Lori Lee
Really enjoyed book one, so I'm excited to see where book 2 goes!

Girl on a Wire by Gwenda Bond
Feuding circus families with dark secrets!! I love the sound of this one!

Many thanks to the fabulous Britt & Kelly for trading with me! 

The Weekly Nutshell:
{Tuesday} What's New: September YA Releases & Giveaway
{Wednesday} Waiting on...The Charmed Children on Rookskill Castle
{Friday} Review: The Uninvited by Cat Winters

This past week was a pretty good week all around.  Good things happening with family, a nice quiet work week, and we decided to jump into a little impromtu mini kitchen remodel.  Nothing major, just opening up a wall, rearranging and redoing the floors, but I think it's really going to be a nice change to the look and layout. And it's a fun way to spend the  3-day weekend! :D
This week I finished reading Curious Tale of the In-Between and I'll be reviewing that this week.  Right now I'm about 70 pages into Ash & Bramble and loving the writing and the main character so far. I'm hoping to find time to do a First Impression review for it this week, and then the full review will be up when the blog tour rolls through here on the 17th! I also finished listening to the audiobook of Nightmares! which was such a fun story to listen to, read by the author Jason Segel---he did a fantastic job! Hoping to start the second book soon.  

Hope you're all having a fantastic week, and three day weekend for those of you in the US! :D
