New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {194}

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 landed on my doorstep this week!

Eeeeee :D So excited to have this pretty edition. I plan to get them all eventually, but first priority was Ravenclaw. ;) I love the special house-specific info and artwork inside. 

For review:
This looks so fun,  and I can read it once I pry it out the hands of my youngest LOL.
Very excited for both of these! These two were duplicate copies for me, though, so I'll be finding good homes for them!
This looks dark and creepy and wonderful. Can't wait to dive in. 
Aaaaaaa, new Stephanie Perkins! I loved Anna and the French Kiss and I can't wait to see her tackle a horror story! This came in a fun promo pack, wrapped in police tape and with some cute (and slightly melty) custom M&Ms! :D

I also received this brilliant promo package for She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton & Alexandra Boiger. This is such a beautiful book and includes the stories of some great woman in history to inspire us all. ♥  The package came with the book, two t-shirts (one adult, one child's). a book bag, a card, and a bracelet! 

Many thanks to Disney Books and Penguin Random House for all the wonderful review books! 

The Weekly Nutshell:
So this week on the blog, I posted my WoW post of The Wicked Deep, which is suppose to have all the witchy goodness of Hocus Pocus + Practical Magic.  Sounds like a pre-order to me LOL.  I posted my review of the ever so gorgeous Disappearances by Emily Bains Murphy.  A new favorite, guys--I love when that happens. :)  Lastly, I posted my tour stop for The Last Magician b Lisa Maxwell---and while I haven't gotten to read this one yet, I couldn't be more excited to get to it. I loved her Peter Pan retelling, Unhooked, last year. 

This week I listened to the audiobook of Geekerella. OMG guys...suuuuch a cute story.  I hope to get my full review written up this week. I loved the story---and had just a few little gripes with the audio performance LOL. But in the meantime, if you're in need of a cheer-up book, definitely reach for this one.  I'm also currently reading No Good Deed by Kara Connelly for the blog tour, stopping here this coming Wednesday.  Enjoying this one! It's a fun little romp though Sherwood Forest ;D. 

That's all for me! Hope everyone is having a great summer!
