New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {47}

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 that...my week here at Stories & Sweeties, in a nutshell. (inspired by Ginger @ GReads and her recaps at the end of the TGIF posts)

So this week, I ended up with quite a haul.  The first two you see there are signed (eeeee!), but sadly, I didn't get to go to the signing because of stupid work. Booo.. 
But luckily, Amy went and got both bought and signed for me, as well as getting my ARC of Invisibility signed by David Levithan and Andrea Cremer. So stinkin' excited to have those! Thank you, dear! :D  

Bought:
Icons by Margaret Stohl
 Excited to see this author's first solo work!

For review:
Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts 
Super happy dance! Very excited for this one!
A Face Like Glass by Frances Hardinge
 This looks amazing. The synopsis has me so curious!
The Year of Luminous Love by Lurlene McDaniels
This one was a surprise...haven't heard much about it!
The Keep by Veronica Wolff
Looks good, but it's book 4 I think? How will I ever catch up?

For review (cont.):
Some of my favorite authors in here!
While I didn't love book 1, I did like how it ended, so I'm up to give this a try!
Curious about this one! 
Second copy, so I'll be giving this away soon!
Not my usual cup of tea, but seeing really great reviews for it!
Atlantis! Haven't heard much about this series...anyone know about it?

Huge thanks to Macmillan, Pan Macmillan UK, Random House, Penguin NAL, and HarperTeen for all of these lovely goodies!! 

The Weekly Nutshell: 

Happy Mother's Day to all you Mommy's out there! :D
