New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {157}

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 little but fierce haul this week :)
For review:
Save Me, Kurt Cobain by Jenny Manzer
Aeee, I feel the nostagia already. :)
The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
Never Ever by Sara Saedi
Always up for a Pan retelling. ;)

Many thanks to Random House & Penguin for these lovelies!

So, a good week! :D  I devoured Crown's Game, guys. Serious, TORE through it. It's absolutely wonderful, magical, romantical. LOVED. My full review will be up this Thurdsay when the blog tour rolls through here, along with a yummy recipe!  Next I picked up Red, a super cute MG retelling of Red Riding Hood. Nearly done with it, it's a fast read. That blog tour also stops here this coming week on Wednesday! :) And lastly the Rockstar tour for Steep and Thorny Way stops here Friday! :)  It's a blog tour bonanza on the blog this week! LOL
This week also involved some lovely Chocolate Banana muffins---so much more chocolate than banana haha. But they were delish so expect that recipe soon (likely this coming Sunday)! Also this week I discovered the new Starbucks Smoked Butterscotch Latte. OH, friends, I am in heaven.  I love Butterscotch everything (yea, okay, so I put butterscotch liqueur in my hot cocoa ;D) so this was definitely destined to be my new weakness. I guess that plan to cut back on Starbucks just went out the window.  Ah, well...

What's everyone reading this week?
