New Shelf Goodies & A Trick-or-Treat Giveaway!

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)
The new books on my shelf this week:
For review:
 Dangerous Lies by Becca Fitzpatrick
I've only read Becca's Hush Hush series (most of it lol) so I'm interested to see how this is!
The Forbidden Orchid by Sharon Biggs Waller
Aaaaa, so excited for this one. Looks like an amazing, historical adventure.
The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
I haven't read this author before but this one about jinni looks so good!

Many thanks to Simon & Schuster and Penguin for these!

The Weekly Nutshell:

Also I guest posted with the fabulous Alyssa of Books Take You Places for Fortnight of Fright! 
Check it out for my review of 

I hope you all had a fantastic Halloween! It's always a busy time around here, finishing up costumes, getting the house fully decked out, plus my family all congregates at my house to trick or treat.  We had tons of trick or treaters this year, which I love. 
This week I read Wink Poppy Midnight. GUYS O_O  I loved this so much. I will likely hold off my full review until closer to the pub date, but it is quite deserving in my eyes of all the lovely hype it's been getting. It's bizarre and magical and April Tuckolke just absolutely blows me away with her way with words.  SOOO, I think after that I must have book hangover because I've tried to start two since them and I'm just having a hard time with them. I tried Tell the Story to It's End and have put it aside. Then I'm about 80 pages into Madly, and it's okay, so I'm pressing on. We'll see. It's a bit..weird. And sorta cheesy.   
Anyone reading anything they are just loving right now? 

So to usher out Halloween 2015, I want to end the night with a 
Trick or  Treat Giveaway!! 

I'm giving away these two spooky reads so the spirit of Halloween can last just a little longer! :D
