<— PRIME DAY SALES JULY 15th 2015 BREAKING NEWS UPDATE!!! IT HAS OFFICIALLY STARTED for TODAY ONLY!!!! Amazon is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary on July 15th (TODAY!!) and so they are having a HUMONGOUS (and I mean humongous – they are claiming better than Black Friday) sale for all Prime members!!! The sales are changing throughout the day (It looks like we can see a whole bunch of stuff right now, but they will be going active and inactive in “batches” throughout the day, and more will be added as the day goes on), so I will make a post (or maybe I’ll do it here) where I’ll point out anything I see that is book related…
- Fifty Shades of Grey – (Unrated Blu-ray Edition + R- rated DVD + R- rated DIGITAL HD Great DEAL ON THIS RIGHT NOW!!!!!
I purchased an omnidirectional clip-on microphone that plugs into my iPhone or iPad (great for on-the-spot author interviews at signings!!) and a Black and Decker dust-buster!! And now I got a pressure washer! Good day for me too. All stuff I needed and significantly discounted.
Quite a few BIG highlights for today… a few fighter books that have my attention big time (like that one there to the left by Shay Savage) who is one of my absolute FAVORITES. Her male POV’s are truly the best of the best, and those guys don’t even TRY to make us swoon, their so darn angry and full of themselves, and yet I do.
TWO ADD-ON NEW RELEASES as of TODAY – Wednesday July 15th 2015!!
- Dark Night of the Soul by Kitty Thomas <— DARK READ LOVERS… this is the queen of dark. And she just released a brand spanking new one that sounds so intriguing. “Caught out at night getting medicine for her sister, Helene is captured and taken as a slave for Gabriel, the mysterious ruler of the city. “Helene, I will take your struggle away. I will bring you back to life.”” Oooooooh.
- The Pentagram Child: Part 2 (Afterlife Saga Book 5) by Stephanie Hudson <— and so many alerted me on this one (they are very excited!) Lisa says: “Don’t forget to add Stephanie Hudson’s, the Pentagram Child Part 2 (The AfterLife Saga). Love this series!!!! It just came out today!!! Can’t get enough of that Draven!!!” and Marit too! “Maryse! The Pentagram Child: Part Two (Afterlife Saga) is finally out!!!:) I have been waiting for this for soooo long now. *happy happy happy dance* Any one else who are excited?;) Yaaaaay!“
Another HUGE highlight of the day is obviously Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman (which is the #1 book on all of Amazon right now). No surprise there, but I’m dying to know if anyone here has read it. What do you think? I know there’s been tons of hot-debate over whether this one should have ever been released or now, but it’s obvious people are devouring it as we speak.
Plus, this crazy intriguing sounding one The Trouble with Paper Planes… Fabi, Jean and I are all over that! Can’t tell if it’s paranormal, or if it’s just a super-psych-thriller/mystery, or what, but that blurb has us going… whaaaaaaaa?? Actually, there are two more paranormals that have me intrigued too. I highlighted ‘em below in their section.
<—OH!!! And don’t forget to check out yesterday’s 7 Earlybird Book Releases ’cause there are two on there that definitely hit my TBR list!! Sacrifice (her dead husband’s brother) and Quirks & Kinks (she’s gonna host a fetish show!)
P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).
