Happy release day everyone! It’s the end of the month and it’s going out with quite a book-bang!! SO MANY awesome new books came out today, and from our favorite tried and true authors. AND AND!!! I found some new-to-us that sound just as exciting! Oh and don’t forget to check out yesterday’s Monday early bird book releases ’cause there were some big ones, in there!
<— Okay, and… that one up there to the left (Grin and Beard It) just sounds like my idea of reading-fun, because I too, have NO sense of direction. NONE. Maps? *shrug* Go north at the light? *blink blink* Er… I dunno. I think it’s genetic ’cause my mom and a few of my family members have the same problem. Anyway… LOL! A snippet from the blurb that had me grinning:
…she has a problem, she can’t read maps and her sense of direction is almost as bad as her comedic timing is stellar. Therefore, when Sienna’s latest starring role takes her to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park she finds herself continually lost while trying to navigate the back roads of Green Valley, Tennessee. Much to her consternation, Sienna’s most frequent savior is a ridiculously handsome, charming, and cheeky Park Ranger by the name of Jethro Winston.
What else looks extra-good to me, today? Unrequited (in the bargains section, he steals the wife of a mafia head for himself… eeeeep!! And book #2 was just released today), Hooker (bad childhood until she was adopted but… she realizes there was more to it. With THAT title? I’m thinking things…), Hold You Against Me (a boy once saved her, and she thought he died, but now she realizes he might by a dangerous criminal), Unexpected Circumstances (just ’cause it’s Shay Savage – right off the bat – but also a historical? Instead of marrying the princess, he makes a political move and marries his maid… and she’s freaking out!!), Sweet Jayne (that blurb!! Listed as a dark taboo?? Three guys, they all are in her life for different reasons, but SHE might be the actual villain? I’m curious!). AND AND!!! I’m reading THIS ONE as we speak (The Butterfly Garden) and SO FREAKING EXCITED about it!! Psych-thriller!!!!
P.S. The bargain finds and reader recommendations are loaded in MY favorites, today!!! YAY!! I must insist on ‘em… and I included my reviews. It’s like a who’s who of Maryse’s favorites from a few years ago that I STILL reminisce about. These set the standard. Or are a secure PART of the standard, of what makes up my favorites!
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“)!

This way, you can switch back and forth, seamlessly between your ebooks and your audiobooks. VERY COOL!
