Me and My Ghoulfriends (Larue Donavan, Book 1), by Rose Pressey. (Still $0.99?)
Let's start today's selection with a 99-cent quirky romance, that has earned over 70 five-star reviews from its readers.
"This is an author that I have put on my 'to watch' list and I will be sure to try anything else she has written or writes in the future." --Amber Chalmers for ParaNormalRomance.org
"I would love to read more about Larue and her ghost adventures! This story is so charming, witty, and entertaining and I'm sure Ms. Pressey can do it again!" --Steph B. for The Romance Studio
308 pages, with a 4.1-star rating from 138 reviews.
Rule, by Jay Crownover. (Still $1.99?)
This teen romance has a phenomenal 500 five-star reviews.
"I really enjoyed this book. The hero in all his bad boy-ness was hot. Shaw, the heroine, was likable, mature (given her age), and kept the whiny-ness to a minimum. I didn't quite grasp why a rich, beautiful girl was such a high school outcast but it was pretty irrelevant. The supporting characters were good, the banter was good, the passion and angst were good...but it wasn't, "cant put it down-think about it every minute-great." It was simply good. However the potential for "downright freaking fantastic" was most certainly present." -- Amazon reviewer
327 pages, with a 4.3-star rating from 1,025 reviews.
Forevermore (Pat O'Malley Mysteries), by Jim Musgrave. (Still $1.99?)
In this highly-rated historical mystery, Pat O'Malley is a war hero who turns detective to solve the murder of Edgar Allan Poe.
"The book kept my interest and I do like Poe and a good mystery. It's a quick read that I could not put down." -- Amazon reviewer
145 pages, with a 4.5-star rating from 6 reviews.
Born (The Born Trilogy), by Tara Brown. (Still $0.99?)
This highly-rated dystopian novel is praised for its plot and characterization. Not for children or YA, with its adult themes it's more of a "New Adult" novel.
"The main character Emma goes through many ups and downs starting at age 9 when the infection takes over her city, but throughout the book she is such a strong independent female. I really loved all the characters that came into Emma's life throughout the book. Warning to some, you may not like the harsh reality of this story with the Breeder Farms and what happens there! I personally didn't find it offensive but some might. If you are a Hunger Games fan I believe you'll love this one!" -- Amazon reviewer
261 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 49 reviews.
Once Burned: A Night Prince Novel, by Jeaniene Frost. (Still $1.99?)
This fantasy romance has over 200 five-star reviews.
"I like the lead character Leila. She is genuine and loyal, smart and pragmatic. I enjoyed watching her fight her feelings for Vlad. It made it even sweeter when she eventually succumbed. Really sensual and satisfying. The plot is interesting, the writing is conversational, and the pacing was so good that I didn't want to put down the book. Very, very good. " -- Amazon reviewer
389 pages, with a 4.3-star rating from 265 reviews.
Liquid Lies (Mystery, Thriller, Suspense), by Lois Lavrisa. (Still free?)
Two teens are 'invited' to 'party' with a trucker and end up killing him in self-defense so they can escape. After making a pact never to tell what happened, one girl goes to France, while the other stays in their small town. Four years later, Francesca returns home to tell CiCi that they are being blackmailed about the trucker's death. Then, Francesca is killed and CiCi becomes a prime suspect.
"A must read suspense novel. I was glued to my seat while reading...I couldn't guess the outcome...The characters are well thought out and very vivid...I would recommend it to anyone who wants to read a wonderful mystery with lots of twists and turns! " Xenophobia, Reviewer
272 pages, with a 4-star rating from 111 reviews.
The Kennedy Brothers, by Richard D. Mahoney. (Still $1.99?)
Mahoney, a former JFK scholar at the University of Massachusetts and at the Kennedy Library, examines how Jack and Bobby were shaped by their relationship as brothers and by the legacy of their father, Joe Kennedy. 44 brief chapters, each a vignette illuminating how the brothers responded to events not as separate historical actors but as members of a family.
"This intriguing book brings a fresh perspective to bear on the intimate, charged partnership of John and Robert Kennedy. The author has both the academic and political experience necessary to evaluate evidence of the Kennedys' relations with the Mafia, anti-Castro rebels, and other groups lurking in the shadows of American life. He also has a sharp eye for the brothers' differing yet complementary personalities. Mahoney's vivid, compulsively readable text offers suggestive questions rather than definitive answers, but it certainly succeeds as a bracing corrective to "America's inability to see its history as tragedy," a failure Jack and Bobby emphatically did not share." -- Wendy Smith
464 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 49 reviews.
Anathem, by Neal Stephenson. (Still $1.99?)
Here's a great value: over 1,000 pages of incredible world-building from New York Times bestseller Neal Stephenson.
"Stephenson has carved a niche as one of the most ambitious writers working today in any genre. Anathem is intellectually rigorous and exceedingly complex, even to the point, as the Washington Post avows, of being “grandiose, overwrought and pretty damn dull.” Others complained of too much abstraction. Stephenson’s fans are legion, however, and many will add Anathem to their list of must-read doorstops." -- Amazon reviewer
1010 pages, with a 3.9-star rating from 414 reviews.
