A Spy In The House (The Agency #1) by Y S Lee – So, I have a confession to make. I buy ARCs. Now, before you look up my address to lynch me, I don’t mean I bid absurd amounts of money on ebay to get my hands on something that doesn’t benefit the author or publisher. What I mean is, when I see an ARC at a local store like GoodWill, a place where the book has been donated, then I don’t feel bad paying $1 for it. So anytime you see ARC’s in my purchase pile, that’s why. If I see a book I want for super cheap, I usually don’t pass it up, regardless of the format it’s in. Admitting that probably isn’t a great idea, but it’s the truth. ::shrugs:: Anyway, this looks like an interesting historical/mystery type thing, so it should be entertaining.
Geek Magnet by Kieran Scott – This looks so adorably cute that I couldn’t resist it. 🙂
Mindspeak (Mindspeak #1) by Heather Sunseri – I was lucky enough to met Heather last weekend at the Pens On Fire event and her book sounds incredibly interesting. When I saw this was free, I couldn’t resist. I hope I can make time to read it soon.
Storm (Elemental #1) by Brigid Kemmerer – I loved this book. I adored this book. I cannot believe Amazon is offering this book free. GIMME! (You can read my review here.)
Saving Forever (The Ever Trilogy #3) by Jasinda Wilder – Amazon freebie but an author I’ve read? GIMME!
One of the perks of being a street team member is swag! I’m keeping the autographed one for me and three or four to add to my giveaway swag box, then the rest go to Lauren to give out at the library!
I did something this week that I’ve never done before. I have officially DNF-ed a book….and I feel terrible. It was Night Sky by Suzanne Brockmann and Melanie Brockmann. I struggled to keep going and finally just couldn’t bring myself to keep going. I got about 30% in before I called it quits, but I just couldn’t make myself read more. The characters were shallow and irritated, it was written that I’m going to tell you instead of showing you way, and don’t even get me started on the weird slang. I get that you are trying to create a new world and things will need names, but those were terrible.
That’s all! Did you get anything good this week? Let me know in the comments!
