I have once again found my way onto Kindle Unlimited and with ApollyCon just around the corner, I have borrowed a bunch of books that I am super excited for. I did forget that there is a limit but I found it! Hah! Anyways, here's what I got this week, I'm quite excited about it!
I only picked up one book from NetGalley this past week and that is a thriller that caught my attention for a solid while and so I decided to give it a go. I've been delving a little more into the thriller area of reading and have not been terribly disappointed as of yet. This one follows a girl who watched as her best friend simply fell over a died while standing in front of a stranger named Kevin. Seven years later, she has a better life and but finds a YouTube video that shows another girl who dies right in front of Kevin once again. This leads her on a hunt to try and figure out what actually happened to her friend. This sounds intriguing and I'm willing to give it a shot to see what I think!
This is a spur of the moment borrow and I am not even sure if it's going to be my type of book, but that's the amazing thing about library books is that I don't have to be positive in order to pick them up. I mostly picked out this book because I liked the cover and it was a recommendation from a librarian. This sounds like a book about a woman who is happy in her marriage but then meets a woman who challenges everything she thought made her happy and she ends up possibly starting a new relationship with this woman? I'm not exactly sure, but I'm not a fan of the cheating aspect of any book so if that comes up I probably won't end up finishing it, unfortunately.
Something very similar can be said about why I picked up this book. I was looking for more short stories to read as I am looking to get into writing some, and this one came up as a new one that comes highly recommended. I absolutely love this cover and and so excited to dive into this book.
Alright, all three of these are ApollyCon authors, but I am sincerely excited to read all of these and if there are physical copies at ApollyCon I will probably get them because yes. The first, Wolf Gone Wild by Juliette Cross is a romance between a grumpy werewolf and a witch bar owner which just sounds like so much fun! I also have International Sensory Assassin Network by Mary Ting which sounds like such an interesting dystopian story. Finally, I have Forrest for the Trees by Kilby Blades which is a firefighter and forest ranger romance that involves a mystery and I honestly am loving this cover so I plan on picking this up for sure! I know there is one more book in this series so that should be fun!
These three are also by ApollyCon authors, the first one being Jaclyn and the Beanstalk by Mary Ting, I feel like I never see Jack and the beanstalk retellings and I would love to change that and maybe I'll write one of my own at some point, that seems like a fun idea. I have mixed thoughts on the concept of this one but I'm willing to see what happens! I also picked up Cinder-Nanny by Sariah Wilson, I read Seat Filler by her and enjoyed it so why not try another? I also picked up Conveniently Convicted by Ivy Asher and Raven Kennedy which just sounds like a lot of fun and I'm here for the paranormal prison idea!
What did you guys pick up?
