New Shelf Goodies & The Weekly Nutshell {100}

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)

Here's my week in books:
For review:
Stray by Elissa Sussman (reading now and loving!)

A few of these are duplicates for me, but excited for them all the same!

Many thanks to Harper and Harlequin for these!

The Weekly Nutshell: 
{Tuesday}  Waiting on Wednesday: The Bargaining
{Wednesday} Clear Your Shelf Giveaway Hop!
{Friday} Review + Giveaway: Chasers of The Light


Another fun week of books. Guys, check out the poetry book I reviewed yesterday if you missed it. I'm giving a pre-order copy away, not only because I loved it, but because the author is donating part of the proceeds from all preorders to To Write Love on her Arms charity. Also check out my Clear Your Shelf giveaway---two stacks of books will be finding new homes! 
I finished Jackaby this week and it was such a fun read. Reading Stray now and loving it so far. Next up is The Fall---I can't wait for the creepiness! Also, for all you Whovians out there: YAY! Doctor 12 is finally here!!

Hope everyone had a great week!

  11. Right now I'm reading The Mark of Cain by Lindsey Barraclough, sequel to Long Lankin... I should have saved it for Halloween! It's so creepy! I think I'll be reading the 3rd Raven Cycle book around that time since it comes out the same week. Very excited for Blue Lily, Lily Blue and I'm sure it will be delightfully eerie. I think I'll save Hexed by Michelle Krys for a Halloween read as well! Have to have some witches :)
