New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {159}

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)

What the mailman brought this week:
For review:
Sisters of Salt & Iron by Kady Cross
This one wasn't really on radar until it showed up at more door---it looks so good! Twins that are tethered spirits on either side of "the veil"!
The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige
Yellow Brick War by Danielle Paige
I'm behind on this series, only having read the first, but I'm glad I have to second and third now. I loved Dorothy Must Die!
The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi (with pretty tattoos!)
If you saw my haul last week, you know this is a second copy for me, but I love having the pretty swag! Haven't decided if I'll be trading or holding a giveaway for this duplicate!

I also got some pretty Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies bookmarks from the fabulous Lindsay Ribar!! I have the book already and I can't wait to read it!

Thanks so much to Harlequin Teen, HarperTeen, St. Martin's Press, and Lindsay Ribar for making my mail awesome!

The Weekly Nutshell:
{Tuesday} Blog Tour Interview with Jeff Zentner
{Wednesday} Waiting on Wednesday: Scythe by Neal Shusterman
{Thursday} Blog Tour Review: Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum

This week has been sucksville---I have such a terrible cold!! :(  I've been couch-ridden since Tuesday. UGH. But luckily I've got some good books to keep me company.  :) And tea and puppy snuggles, and my lovely mama even sent over her wonderful healing chicken soup.
Reading has kind of been all over the place, I ended up setting aside A Study in Charlotte. I can't tell you how excited I was for that one, and while it started off good, I just lost interest after a while into it. I read Pull by Anne Riley and really enjoyed that one--review to come soon!  I just started Firstlife today and I'm about 70 pages in---so far, so good! I'm also planning to start the finale in Lauren DeStefano's Internment Chronicles, Broken Crowns. Very excited about that as I loved both previous books, and pretty much everything I've read by DeStefano! :D

So that's all for me this week! What's everyone reading???
