New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {173}

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 has landed on my doorstep recently:

For review: 
The Beast is an Animal by Peternelle Van Arsdale
Sounds a bit like The Glass Casket, which I loved, so I'm excited!
Spindle by Shonna Slayton
Sleeping Beauty retelling..always down for that! :)
Forget Me Always by Sara Wolf
Haven't heard much about this one...anyone recommend?
I'm Not Your Manic Pixie Dream Girl by Gretchen McNeil
This one sounds a bit too straight-forward contemp for me. But cute!
This one is getting some good feedback---might have to give it a try!

From Trade:
Thanks to Michelle for the wonderful trade!! :D

Huge thanks to Simon & Schuster, Entangled Teen, Random House, and Harper Teen for the review copies!

Waiting on Wednesday: The Wood by Chelsea Bobulski

So it's been a slow-going couple of weeks here and in my day to day life. Health still a bit wobbly but I'm getting there.  It's at least given me lots of reading time, but I am so ridiculously behind on writing my reviews. UGH. I hate being so far behind.
This week I finished off A Shadow Bright and Burning and I'll be reviewing that for the blog tour rolling through this week.  I also started Yesternight and I'm loving it so far, but that's not surprising since it's Cat Winters writing about an idea I've always been fascinating by: past life memories in children.  I'm not sure what's up next---I guess I'll just wait to see what I'm in the mood for when I finish Yesternight! I need a good spooky read for Halloween! What are you reading this week??

Happy reading, everyone!
