HAPPY NEW RELEASE DAY!! Today’s list has some sure-hits (I’ll post my mini-blurb-jolt highlights a little further below), BUT!! If you missed yesterday’s Monday early bird book releases post, don’t forget to check it out. It is INSANE how many great book went live early (that were complete surprises!!!). I called it… “not just book releases, but OMG I LOVE THIS AUTHOR book releases.” PLUS!!! Kristen Ashley ROCK CHICK LOVERS! Look what’s up for preorder: Rock Chick Reawakening by Kristen Ashley (here it also is, on Amazon UK)
Rebecca: “If you are an Amazon kindle ebook reader (and were in 2010-2012) – the second anti-trust lawsuit settlements were placed in Amazon accounts this morning! Check your gift card balance This one is different than the last one because your credit isn’t solely allowed on more books- you can use it for anything on Amazon! Very nice surprise this morning and took me forever to figure out the random balance”
Maryse: HOLY MOLY!!!!!! That is a nice gift card!!!!!
Melissa: Have you checked your email for a possible Amazon account credit from Apple regarding the settlement of their Ebook antitrust lawsuit? I got one and it was very exciting! Can we say book buying binge? Lol!
Fabi: haven’t received an email…
MichelleS: Go to “my account” and “gift card balance” – and you can use it on anything at the site, not just books. Maybe I’ll get that Ninja blended I have been wanting. I didn’t get an email either, Fabi. I wonder if you have to use it by a certain date? I better use it up now. Do you have to “claim” it? Or is it automatic? I’m temped to buy one thing so I don’t lose it.
Maryse: My email ended up in the “promotions” tab in my gmail… so I missed it at first, too.
Kirstyn: I received one from Amazon and from Apple. If you’ve bought iBooks check your iTunes account as well. $75 from Amazon and $230 from Apple. I’m set on books for awhile.
Ela: Looks like I might be getting something on Nook, just got an email and that’s about the time I only used Barnes & Noble. Nook won’t show for another couple of days according to the email….. I don’t know about Amazon but on Nook it expires June 24, 2017 so a whole year later. Also, Nook balance will show up in the next few days unlike Amazon. I wonder what I can get at Barnes & Noble besides books and magazines?
Rebecca: I thought it was a mistake and wished I hadn’t called my hubby about it Mine was very nice indeed, too!
Maryse: It’s so nice that we’re readers!!!
AND! Here is my mini-blurb-jolts highlight reel (and it will span yesterday’s post, and today’s since there are some awesome looking one in both of ‘em): Yours (her husband dies and his heart goes to someone else… and it finds its way back to her!) Ramsay (he’s back to exact revenge on her for destroying his life), Say You’ll Stay (I love struggling single mom stories… such a great feeling when they find happiness and peace), Poesy (I LOVED “Low” and this is the prequel – criminal couple on the run!!), A Bird on a Windowsill (this author writes beautiful heartwarming, angsty love stories, and when he accidentally runs into her again she’s the same… but he isn’t!!), Easy Kisses (motivation speaker, and the jaded girl), A Midsummer Night’s Fling (this one’s blurb made me giggle!!), Entangled (he’s becoming a star, and she’s struggling with his new fame), Into the Nothing (she escapes an abusive relationship and is helped by a stranger), Song of the Blackbird (she gets a job as a doctor in a prison), Full Share (she’s trying to hide out for awhile and just wants to be alone)… and SO MANY MORE!
So now that everyone’s squeeing over this morning surprise… here are today’s latest releases!!
P.S. ➔ Follow me (and Pimmie – my sweet puppy) on Instagram? That would be SO cool!!!
P.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 audiobooks 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!

The cover is so pretty and PERFECT for the book. Oh and I don’t think I’ve ever read a blurb that fit its book so perfectly. Especially that last part!
