BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!! A new one was just released today that look right up our alley!! Saving Mercy by Nicole Tillman <— This super-bargain new release is calling me… big time. I always seem to fall for the love stories where the girl falls for the ghost.
Just check out this blurb and you’ll see what I mean…
“MERCY HUNTER was certain she had left the clairvoyant tendencies of her bloodline behind. However, when she arrives at her new apartment in blustery Chicago, she is shocked to find that the previous tenant, Ryan, has stayed behind.
Eventually, a unique friendship begins to blossom.
Ryan starts to think he’s been left behind to act as Mercy’s protector, but she doesn’t seem to be the kind of woman who wants to be protected.
Meanwhile, Mercy is convinced it’s her job to help Ryan cross over, but as she grows to know him, she’s not entirely sure she’s selfless enough to let him go…”
I’m ready to squee over trying quite a few of these… below. My TBR list is bursting at the seams and yet I continue to add. But how can i not, when I see a book like this one: The King Trilogy (okay this isn’t a new one, but those recommendations HAVE me!! LIKE BARRONS?? YES PLEASE!!!) and Need Me (I love Tessa Bailey’s brand of steam, so this college-aged student-teacher romance sounds titillating!) and Diamonds (I love K.A. Linde, too – queen of throw-your-kindle angst!! And this heroine is only 17… yet HE doesn’t know that) *gasp!!!* and Things We Know by Heart (Kim & I love angst and feels, and she highly recommends this new release). Oh!! Of course, Do Not Disturb (but I need to read book #1 first, and since I LOVE Alessandra Torres, I can’t WAIT to get to these two!!) and Fracture (In a war-torn part of Sarajevo… she finds and saves and nurses him back to health, but now she’s stuck with him and he’s surly as heck. YES!!!)
AND OMG!!!!! The pre-orders list (below) is already super-squee-worthy (and I’m still adding to that, too). Quite a few on there that we are IN LOVE with… like… Beautiful Sacrifice: A Novel (Maddox Brothers Book 3) by Jamie McGuire – expected release date May 31st 2015
Also check out yesterday’s 10 more of the latest awesome sounding books (there were some early birds on there).
AND a reminder: for those accessing my blog via their mobile device (phone or tablet) you’ll notice the look of it has changed (for now, that’s the “mobile compatible” version and I’m hoping we can get it close to the usual “look” while still keeping it “mobile friendly”). On a desktop computer/laptop the look of the blog is the usual one.
P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).
AUDIOBOOK RELEASES PLUS check out the free audible trial + 2 free ebooks deal ————->
- AND! Here’s the fun-tool again! —> Find out which of YOUR Kindle books are available as audiobooks at a BARGAIN-PRICE! <— This thing is so cool (Amazon calls it “Matchmaker“)! It’s an Amazon feature, that scans your Kindle books and will list all of the ones you have that are also available as an audiobook at a discounted price (not normal audiobook prices). This way, you can switch back and forth, seamlessly between your ebooks and your audiobooks. VERY COOL!
In fact, MichelleS just used it and said:
MichellleS: Maryse – I just tried out the “Matchmaker” Amazon feature you mentioned. How cool is that? So many of my books are bargain priced. Even some that are still on my TBR. I can download the audio book and listen on the plane or on the beach, and not have to “read”. Yay for me. LOVE THAT. Thanks for finding all this cool stuff for us.
Maryse: I know!!! Audiobooks for ebook super-sale prices. I’m thrilled with that, and what’s fun is you can flip flop from reading it, to listening to it without losing your spot…
