eBooksThese eBooks are all from over the past two weeks, as I didn't have time to put any in my post last week. Click on each image to visit the Goodreads pages, to read the synopsis' and add it to your wishlist :)
The Book of Deacon by Joseph R. Lallo: This was a free one from Amazon Kindle, and it looks like a pretty good fantasy novel. It was also pretty well-rated on Amazon, and I thought that I'd give it a go.
A Job From Hell by Jayde Scott: Another free one from Amazon Kindle, and one that sounds like it'll be exactly my kind of read. It's also pretty well-rated, so I don't think I'll go wrong with this one either.
Angelfall by Susan Ee: This was a featured book on the Amazon Kindle page, and I've heard a lot about it recently. For £1.99, I thought I'd give it a go.
Talulla Rising by Glen Duncan: I haven't read the first book in this series yet, but I do have it on my Kindle, so I thought I'd pick the sequel up, while it was cheap.
Ash by James Herbert: I've never read a James Herbert book, but I keep thinking that I should give them a go. This is the new book, and it's still only out in hardback in the UK (I don't know about anywhere else, if I'm honest), but it was only 20p on Kindle, for a limited time, so I picked it up! I can't believe how cheap it was! Even though horror isn't one of my preferred genres, I'm still going to give it a go.
Katya's World by Jonathan L. Howard: I got this one to review from Angry Robot on NetGalley, and it looks like a really great fantasy read. It sounds like it has really great world building, which is something I love, but also a sense of proper adventure. I'm hoping it'll live up to my expectations.
The Dead of Winter by Lee Collins: Another one from Angry Robot on NetGalley, and another that I'm excited about. It sounds like something a bit different from what I usually read, so I'm looking forward to it.
Ever by Jessa Russo: I got this one to review from Curiosity Quills Press on NetGalley. I requested it because it sounds like it could be an interesting love story. There is a love triangle in there, and I can sometimes find those quite frustrating, but it'll be interesting to see how this one turns out - seeing as one of the guys is a ghost! I'm also a little upset that I have this in eBook only, and not a hardcopy - the cover is just beautiful - I think I could stare at it all day!
Mark of the Witch by Maggie Shayne: I got this one from MIRA on NetGalley. I've never read any of Maggie Shayne's stuff before, but obviously I've heard a lot about her books. This is the first in a new series that involves witches and magic, and as I am a huge fan of all things magical, I thought I'd put a request in. I'm looking forward to trying this author out!
