Saving Mars, Defying Mars, and Losing Mars by Cidney Swanson:
I first saw these books on Sue Moro's YouTube channel, and Sue was so enthusiastic about them, that I knew I had to check them out. I considered getting the first book, Saving Mars, on my Kindle a while ago, but I'm glad I held off until now, because it went down to 77p during the week! Then I found book two, Defying Mars on Kindle for free, and book three, Losing Mars, had just been released, also for 77p on Kindle. Under £2 is not bad at all for all three books!
I am currently reading Saving Mars, and am really enjoying it :) Fingers crossed I enjoy the rest of it, and the following books just as much!
Being Billy by Phil Earle:
I downloaded a sample of this onto my Kindle during the week, which I then read the other night, but I couldn't decide whether or not it was worth buying it to read on. After looking through copious amounts of reviews, though, I decided that it was highly rated enough that I should buy it. It only cost me £1.99, which is a pretty good price, and I'm looking forward to seeing if I'll agree with the other reviews.
Alone by Robert J. Crane:
This was a Kindle freebie that I picked up and thought looked quite interesting. It sounds like a really enigmatic and mysterious novel, and I was really intrigued by the premise, so fingers crossed it lives up to those expectations!
The Soulkeepers by G. P. Ching:
Another Kindle freebie - this time a fantasy novel. It sounds like an interesting premise, but I'm not entirely convinced it'll fully work. But it was free, so I thought I might as well download it, and see if I'm proven wrong!
The Elite by Kiera Cass:
I received this one via NetGalley from the publishers. It's the second book to The Selection, which I am yet to read (though I did read a couple of chapters, and it sounded pretty good from that). I thought I may as well get it loaded on my Kindle, ready for when I read book one. I'm kind of sad I don't have it as a physical book though, because this cover is just as stunning as the first book!
After Eden by Helen Douglas:
Another book from the publisher via NetGalley. This is YA science fiction, a genre that is really starting to expand recently, which I'm so happy about, as it's a genre I particularly love. I think it has a really interesting-sounding premise, and I can't wait to discover Ryan's secrets!
Wait For You by J. Lynn:
Again, I got this one from the publisher via NetGalley. This is Jennifer L. Armentrout (the Lux series) writing a New Adult contemporary romance under the pseudonym J. Lynn. I'm really enjoying this kind of genre at the moment - it's light-hearted, easy reading, and that's exactly what I need right now!
The First Rule of Swimming by Courtney Angela Brkic:
I was sent an email over the weekend, from NetGalley, with auto-approval for a few titles, and this was among them. It was the only title that I ended up going for, and I have to say it has me really intrigued (and not least because of that gorgeous cover!). Looking forward to seeing if I enjoy it.
This Northern Sky by Julia Green:
This is another title I was invited to try by the publishers on NetGalley. It sounds like a pretty unique contemporary read, and it's definitely something that I'm interested in! I have a feeling I'm going to end up loving it.
