New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {164}

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 all the lovely things that have landed on my doorstep these past two weeks!
For review:
♥.♥ Been looking forward to this one for ages!!
As much as I squealed when I opened this, I feel like a total heel getting it. LOL. I requested it awhile ago and didn't hear back. So I made a trade for it, and then it showed up from the pub. *sigh* when will I learn LOL. Never. Especially about books I am desperately impatient for!!
I love this author---sometimes. LOL This one sounds so amazing, though. 
Okay, so I DNFed her last book. But this sounds incredible (time travel & 19th century Japan!!)so I'm eager to try her work again!
On the fence on this one--hearing such mixed reviews! Hope I love it though!
I've been seeing some lovely thoughts by one of my most trusted bookish twins (hi, Britt!), so I'm hoping to read this one soon!
I was excited about this one, then I saw some questionable reviews. Not so sure anymore. Might still try it though, since I love all things Alice. :)
These six, I'll be keeping my eye out for reviews. I don't real a lot of straight up contemp fiction, so it really has to get some "you can't miss this" raves before I'll pick it up. 
I have heard of this author's books--they all look so intense! I might give this one a try.

Eeeee---Thank you, Jaime!!  

Another awesome thing I got this week was this gorgeous Shadow Magic box. LOOK at the cool glossy bats on the box and pretty letter!♥ I'm such a sucker for touches like this, and I love this even more because I've already read and adored this wonderful book.  You can check out my review of Shadow Magic here. I'm reviewing it again for San Diego Book Review, that's where the box came from :D

SO much thanks go out to HarperTeen, Macmillan, Disney-Hyperion, Abrams, Penguin, & Merit Press for the lovely books to review! 

The Weekly Nutshell
{Tuesday} Blog tour review: Exile for Dreamers
{Wednesday} Waiting on Wednesday : Traveler by L.A. Delano 

Laaazy blogger this week lol. But lots of fun family time, so yay :D It was my littlest one's last day of school, so summer is officialy kicked off now. He also promoted to his orange belt in karate..proud mama. He loves it so much and it's the perfect outlet for all his crazy energy!  It was also my daughter's birthday so we snuck her off to Monterey for a day of exclusive spoiling. ;) 
I started reading Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies  this week, and really enjoying it so far, despite a few love/hate moments with the main character! It certainly keeping me on my toes. Next up is My Lady Jane and I can't wait to start it!! Might sneak in a few chapters while I'm still reading Rocks Fall. LOL  

What are you all reading this week? Anything you highly recommend?? Let me know! :D
