This is a new feature that I am starting (well, they’re pretty much all new since I just started this blog) that will spotlight some “spectacular steals” from the Kindle and Nook stores. I’m mostly only going to spotlight the ones that are “act now” or “for a limited time” because then the constant ones won’t hog the post. However, for my first post I’m going to just let y’all know about the constants…
Switched by Amanda Hocking
Switched – the first book in the Trylle Trilogy…
When Wendy Everly was six years old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. It isn’t until eleven years later that Wendy discovers her mother might have been right.
With the help of Finn Holmes, Wendy finds herself in a world she never knew existed – a world both beautiful and frightening, and Wendy’s not sure she wants to be a part of it.
I haven’t read this book but I would love to. My twin got it on the Kindle and so I read partway through it but then I had some things to do so I never got around to finishing it. It was good enough where I want to finish it but not engrossing enough to make me have to sometime soon.
The Body Finder Low Price with Bonus Material by Kimberly Derting
Violet has always been able to sense the dead. When she finds the body of a girl, to her horror, more girls keep disappearing. A serial killer is on the loose. The problem? Now he’s after her.
Personally, I thought that this book was fantastic. While I didn’t feel as strong of a connection to Violet as I would have liked, the plot was creative and suspenseful and I loved the alternating POV between Violet and the serial killer.
Evermore by Alyson Noel
Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, Ever can see auras, hear people’s thoughts, and know a person’s entire life story by touch. Going out of her way to avoid human contact and suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen.
Damen Auguste is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy. He’s the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head—wielding a magic so intense, it’s as though he can see straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she’s left with more questions than answers. She has no idea just who he really is—or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is she’s falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.
It was good, but I was having slight de ja vu throughout the entire thing. Although I have read reviews that plain-out call it “Twilight”, I think that there were some similarities but Alyson Noel was still original! If any of those people bothered to read the rest of the series, they would no that it’s more than the Twilight storyline. I actually liked this book; I wasn’t amazed by it, but I liked it, and I think that nobody should be trashing it before they actually read it.
Beautiful Demons by Sarra Cannon
In Peachville, even the cheerleaders have a dark side…
Harper Madison isn’t like other girls. She has extraordinary powers, but her inability to control them has gotten her kicked from so many foster homes she’s lost count. Shadowford Home is her last chance, and she hopes Peachville High will be the fresh start she needs. But when evidence ties her to the gruesome murder of a Demons cheerleader, Harper discovers this small town has a big secret.
Okay, you have to admit, the description isn’t the best. However, I think that the actual book was MUCH better than I had expected it to be. They don’t even mention witches in the description! Plus, I must confess that cheerleader books are my guilty pleasure, mostly because I wish that I could actually do cool things like back handsprings and flips and stunts. I’m so jealous. I don’t usually use the word “awesome” to describe a book (I consider it overused) but this book was AWESOME!
This is all for now, mostly because I am trying to work on some other parts of my site and I’m really tired tonight. I will try to post some good deals at least once a week for people who desperately need more great (and cheap) books.
