East of Orleans Renee Irvin
I got a lot of books on sale at Amazon this week. After Life, Anansi Boys, and The River Witch were all on sale as the Kindle Daily. Deal. I probably wouldn’t have gotten After Life or The River Witch if they hadn’t been on sale. It was just good luck. I might not have even gotten the Neil Gaiman book.
The Tamara Rose Blodgett book I was definitely looking forward to reading. I just missed the release date. I was so excited about it I read it as soon as I could and I’ve already finished it. It’s a novella so it wasn’t like there was a marathon reading session or anything like that. I really enjoyed it like I have all her other books.
Price of a Bounty was a free book I found from one of the newsletters I subscribe to. It’s a dystopian novel about a bounty hunter. It’s gotten great reviews on Goodreads. I’m looking forward to reading it. I also found three other novels this week from the newsletter: I Am Alive; Through the Door; and East of Orleans.
I Am Alive is YA Dystopian novel that looks promising. Teenagers are thrown into a deadly game where you have to scream “I Am Alive” every 6 hours. It looks interesting. Through the Door is about a mother who searches for her missing daughter. She finds that her daughter is anything but normal. East of Orleans is not my usual genre. It’s historical fiction. It takes place in Georgia. It’s about two women from different sides of the track whose fates become entwined by a man they both hate.
The Custom of the Army is an Outlander Novella. I’m a huge Outlander fan so I snatched this up when I saw it. I didn’t know she had released this. I’ll probably bump this up my TBR list since it’s a novella.
Pretty good haul for the week. Luckily most of the books were free! See you back here next week! Same time, same place!
