MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!!! :D!!!!! My happy wish for all of us, is that today is filled with big bear hugs, and lots of laughter and friends and family, and warm memories. I’m already feeling warm and fuzzy now that my sister is here, and I have a big day planned!
But, I couldn’t leave for the day without celebrating the Tuesday new releases! Of course, today’s list is super-short and sweet (and loaded in Christmas short stories) but a few of them sound perfect for mini-breaks or a bedtime story. Like that one up there to the left. Oh I wanna read it!!!
P.S. A few fun things:
- HUGE KINDLE UNLIMITED MEMBERSHIP DEAL <— OMG!!! I just found out that Amazon extended this super-bargain membership (<— 3 months for a super-steal)!!! Did you miss it the last time? Now’s your chance. JUMP ON IT!!! !!!!
- Reader Favorites – Best of 2018 <— TWO more added, and more to come!! Also, I’m still accepting “favorites lists”. Just email it to me!
LET’S READ!!!! !!!!
P.P.S. Let me know if I’m missing any or if you loved any (from this list or elsewhere).
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 all of 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)
- Bird Box: A Novel by Josh Malerman <— IT’S ON SALE!!!!!! *SQUEEEEEE!!!!* I loved this one a few years ago in book form, and I just watched it on Netflix this weekend and I loved that one too!!!! Creepy, scary, SUPER-STRESSFUL and awesome. Just plain… awesome!!! P.S. Here’s my book review!! 😀
Tasha: I almost started Bird Box last night. But, I resisted and finished watching Bodyguard. And then I almost clicked it today! I think Bird Box might have to be my next read. I’m weak, I’ll watch the movie first and spoil the book!
Maryse: Tasha you must read Bird Box!!! Totally worth it… and the movie is great too!! But that ending is worth not spoiling.
Tasha: Thanks Maryse! I’ll try to read Bird Box ASAP
Jean: Yeah, i totally recommend reading Bird Box before watching the movie! Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!! Will be running around for the next couple days! Love you all!
- Untouchable: A Bully Romance by Sam Mariano <— BULLY ROMANCE ALERT!! Laura recommends it!!
Laura: The new release, Untouchable by Sam Mariano, is a deliciously dark bully romance. Easily my top read of 2018! The book begins with a sexual assault in a classroom so be warned and this theme of non-consent carries through most of the book.
The main character, Carter, is aware that he is a genuinely bad guy but doesn’t care. Zoey’s boundaries don’t mean anything to him. The storyline will keep you hooked until the very last chapter when you find out how much Zoey means to Carter.
- Look the Part by Jewel E. Ann <— JEWEL E. ANN ALERT!! Jean is LOVING IT TOO!!!
Jean: I probably should have waited to make my list…..I am reading Look the Part by Jewel E. Ann and LOVING IT!!!!! So great!! I think it was on someone else’s “Favorites” list…..Jan maybe??
