Ascend by Amanda Hocking: You may have noticed that I got the second book in this series, Torn, last week, for 20p from Kindle UK. Well, this week, I found Ascend for 69p!! I love Kindle sales!

The Demoness of Waking Dreams by Stephanie Chong: This is the second book to Where Demons Fear to Tread, which I read last year (you can find the link to my review here). I really enjoyed it, and was looking forward to reading the next book, which I managed to get from the publishers on NetGalley this week. Definitely looking forward to this one!

Pretty Twisted by Gina Blaxill: I've had my eye on this one for a while now, but just hadn't picked it up yet. However, when I was browsing the Kindle sale the other day, I found it for 20p! I can't believe how good some of the prices are at the moment - it's insane. I'm really looking forward to reading this one as well!

The Assassin and the Pirate Lord: A Throne of Glass Novella by Sarah J. Maas: As you may know, I finished reading Throne of Glass last week, and I was fairly impressed with it, overall. One of the things I really wished I knew more about was Celaena's backstory, and these new novellas are exactly that! There are two more after this one, but I thought I'd give this one a shot first, especially as it was only 94p! What am I most excited about with this book, then? We finally get to meet Sam! I'm definitely excited about this one.

Fake Kate by David Wailing: This one was a freebie from the Amazon Kindle UK site. It looks pretty good, and as it was a free book, I really didn't have anything to lose. I'm hoping it will be a good read, all the same, though!

Some great books Dani. I want to read the Maze Runner serious.

Wow, "Between the Lines" sounds really cool and the concept of the book looks wonderful. Saw many people adding it to their goodreads lists but didn't know it the main plot. Adding that book to my wishlist now.
"Seraphina" also sounds interesting and "Touch of Power" is a book I definitely need to get my hands on ^_^

I received Earth Girl as well and I'm about halfway at the moment, really enjoying it as well :)

I can't wait to see what you think of Seraphina because I've heard good things about it!

I need to read Touch of Power, I've read the Study and Glass series' but haven't had the chance to grab this one yet!

You get so many awesome books...I'm a regular at the Works here in Liverpool but I wish we had more book stores!

Hope you are enjoying your week :)

Jenn@OwlReadIt said...

Earth Girl does sound really good!! Sci Fi is awesome! I'm looking forward to your thoughts on Seraphina, I just got it as an e-arc and am very excited to dive into it!

I think I should look into Touch of Power if you like it so much, I might like it

Great books this week! Enjoy them all and happy reading!
