All these storms in the Seattle area have meant my inbox has been piling up along with the snow! So here’s another ebook roundup post to help clear out the queue.
Acquired from Amazon:
Jane Doe, by Victoria Helen Stone. This one is a thriller about a woman getting revenge on the man responsible for killing her best friend. Saw this get talked up very positively on the Smart Bitches site, so when it went on sale for $1.99, I nabbed it.
(And I bought it from Amazon since it’s published by one of Amazon’s own imprints, and therefore not available with other ebook vendors.)
Acquired from Kobo:
How Long ’til Black Future Month?, by N.K. Jemisin. This is her newly released collection of shorter works, and I’m snapping it up because goddamn this woman can write. And I nabbed it in ebook form for $4.99. (A price which is still in effect as of this writing!)
Spellswept and Snowspelled, by Stephanie Burgis. Fantasy-flavored romance, sort of a meld of historical romance and romantic fantasy, so think “Regency romance with elves”. This is highly pertinent to my interests! These two titles are a prequel novella and Book 1 of the series called The Harwood Spellbook, and right now the prequel is on sale for $1.99 and Book 1 for $0.99. If I like this, I’ll also be nabbing book 2.
And last but most definitely not least:
Radio Silence, A Duke by Default, and Once Ghosted, Twice Shy, all by Alyssa Cole. Nabbing these because a) hey, I’m also published by Carina Press! This makes Alyssa Cole and I fellow Carina Press authors! \0/, b) I really liked A Princess in Theory, so I wanted to proceed with the series, c) I’m particularly happy about Once Ghosted, Twice Shy, featuring queer black women, and d) I also enjoyed Cole’s An Extraordinary Union, and am looking forward to building her presence in my library!
Got the two Royals books for nice and cheap, and I nabbed Radio Silence while I was at it by spending some amassed Kobo points. I love that I can periodically do that on their site! Also, I like the cover on Once Ghosted, Twice Shy almost as much as the one on A Princess in Theory. I love the expressions those two women are giving each other. (heart)
Total for the year: 10
