<— WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 9th 2015 UPDATE —> HOLY MOLY MY FAVORITE BOOK SALE ALERT!!! Two of my very favorite books JUST WENT ON SALE today and I mean ROCK BOTTOM prices. These were the two books I just read last week and LOVED!!!! YOU GUYS!!! ONE-CLICK THESE ASAP. Seriously. Fantastic writing, fantastic angsty romance, heartache and OMG the shocking twist. DO NOT READ THE BLURBS. Just trust me. You can read my reviews ’cause they aren’t spoiler-y.
- The Man I Love (The Fish Tales Book 1) by Suanne Laqueur <— SUPER. BARGAIN. PRICED!!!!! (my book review)
- Give Me Your Answer True (The Fish Tales Book 2) by Suanne Laqueur <— SUPER. BARGAIN. PRICED!!!!! (my book review)
Lots of fancy, sexy, darkish, sweeeeeet, funny, exciting romance releases today, and of course, I’ve highlighted the ones that gave me a little extra blurb jolt. Look at all the goodies! Don’t forget to also check out yesterday’s “Monday early bird book releases” ’cause this list rocks, too!
Okay a few that have my “extra-attention”? Dark Night of the Soul (super-sale dark read by Kitty Thomas that I want to read… that blurb HAS me!), Cold Kiss (sounds good and creepy, high school students, she has a secret power, and brings her boyfriend back to life after he dies but… he’s not quite normal this time around!), Lawless (HE is so bad, and she’s so prim!! And that COVER pretty much says it all !!), When We Fall (she’s been crushing on her best friend’s bad boy brother for so long, and now she’s roommates with him – I LOVE roommate stories!!)!! What ones look good to you guys?
Oh! And… I’ve actually settled on one from last week that so many are loving and it sounds SO different (but so cool) and is right up my alley. Anarchy Found – Alpha Lincoln by J.A. Huss!! Superhero/super-villain (<— I… I mean, she falls for the villain) and I love that kinda thing! Love the intricacies and the kind of detail it takes, for a personal connection to be formed between the reader and someone considered “bad”. Keeps me on my toes, my heart racing, and me giggling with glee at how bad it is (and therefore, how gooooood it is). So far, so good on this one, and I shall update soon!
P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).
P.P.S. Don’t have a Kindle? No problem! Amazon offers various free Kindle apps and a free Kindle Cloud reader for any and ALL of us to use. You can either use the free Kindle App for your smartphone, tablet, AND your desktop computer (just like you’re using a Kindle, but right through your web browser <— No need to download anything! )
For those going on a road trip soon, or maybe you’ve got some projects that require both hands this weekend but still allows you to “listen”… 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!

BARGAINS & READER RECOMMENDATIONS (NOTE: bargain priced when I added them, but prices can change on Amazon, so make sure to check before you finalize your order).

- Love’s Sacrifice (Absolute Series Book 2) by Erin Everleigh <— DANGEROUS FAMILY ALERT? a recent release that I missed the first time around and is so bargain priced!! He’s trying to protect her from his family (and I honestly still have no clue “what” his family is about, from the blurb) but he… “…couldn’t let her go—I never could. Unfortunately, neither would my family. Only able to communicate in secret, Susan and I had to wait for the day that my family’s truths would be exposed and we could finally be together. Until then, I would tell their lies and keep my silence. But I will have my revenge.“
- Priest: A Love Story by Sierra Simone <— TABOO FORBIDDEN LOVE ALERT! Super-bargain priced today, ’cause book #2 was just released below!! I won’t read the blurb of #2 ’cause it’s a sequel.
- Lies We Live (The Truth Series Book 1) by Brenda St John Brown <— A FAMOUS AUTHOR WITH A CRAZY EX!! This one is on super-bargain sale ’cause #2 was just released (below)… “Ella Ingraham is a best-selling novelist. She’s also a murderer. At least that’s what most of the world thinks after her ex brought a tabloid frenzy and a civil suit down on her for “negligence” following the stillbirth of their unplanned child at eight months. Her cross-country drive is meant to be an escape…”
- The Kathleen Turner Series by Tiffany Snow <— MEGA-LOVED SERIES w/ LOVE TRIANGLE ALERT & THE FIRST 5 books in this series are on super-sale!! Cristina recommends ‘em big time! “I LOVED Tiffany Snow’s Kathleen Turner series! Kade Dennon is one of my top book boyfriends! God I love bad brooding boys with a tender heart! *swoon* The first book in the series starts out a little slow which saddens me because it turns some people away. However, I find that with long series, most first books are like that, it kinda sets the scene. Don’t you think? Be that as it may, once the series took off it was one heck of a great ride! Ms. Snow can really pull off a great love triangle! I love the angsty push and pull. I love romance/suspense books. That was one series that I DEVOURED in a short period of time. And! That’s one of my very rare re-reads.” and Theresa agrees! “Great love triangle. Big time pager turner.”
- Power Play (Risky Business Book 1) by Tiffany Snow <— Cristina also recommends this one! “Have you read her new Risky Business series? OMG! Just as good AND another fantastic love triangle!! Love it when a book plays with my mind and heart! Be forewarned though that the Risky Business series isn’t complete yet, so there is a cliff hanger. :-/“
- Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey <— SOUNDS AWESOME-CREEPY ALERT!!! Amy found us this one on sale! “…I don’t remember much about it other than I liked it, and I just ached for the position she put herself in and the decision she had to face. Just read the last line of the blurb and you’ll see what I mean. “
