I’ve blogged about the fact that since my Kindle, I’ve been reading a lot more than usual. I especially love picking up a novella for 99 cents because I know I can read it fast and still enjoy it! Especially since my pile of books to read is out of control. As I know all of yours are too!
Here are some books I’ve really enjoyed lately and will soon be reviewing on Goodreads.
The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen. (The Kindle version is only 3.99 right now!)
I’d been hearing so much about The False Prince! Finally, with the release of the sequel, The Runaway King, my library got it in. I loved it. I figured out the plot twist early on. My daughter figured it out just by reading the synopsis. But that just added to the dramatic irony. I don’t think readers weren’t supposed to figure it out. This is an upper middle grade, but one adults will enjoy too.
Wide Awake by Shelly Crane
I snagged this book when it was on sale for 99 cents. In fact, it still might be. This is definitely YA, not to be confused with New Adult. This thrilling type story had everything I love: secrets and mystery. A great read.
Cinderella on Skates by Carly Syms
This caught my eye when it shot up the ranks after publication. Great cover, and I was curious. This is a sweet, romantic read. It could have used a little more tension, but in some ways, this was refreshing.
One Day More by Aprilynn Pike
This is the first book I’ve read of this author’s. How could I not want to read this when the novel is called: Life After Theft? This novella, released for marketing purposes, did its job well. In Life After Theft a girl dies and Jeff (his pov) must help her return everything she stole. This novella read really easily. I’ll warn you, the girl is not a likeable character – as in she’s spoiled with attitude. But I don’t mind those types of characters and I’m looking forward to Life After Theft.
What have you read lately that you really liked?
Thanks for sharing what you’ve been reading. I loved The False Prince and The Runaway King. Glad you and your daughter enjoyed them.
The Runaway King will be next! I was afraid the story would be all hype but it’s got word of mouth for a reason!
Cinderella on Skates – funny title.
The funny thing is the story has nothing to do with cinderella…go figure.
Wide Awake sounds particularly interesting.
Oh, I also loved The False Prince and the sequel. I’m not always big on trilogies, but I’ll look forward to the finale, too.
I’ve had the False Prince on my radar for a while, and Life After Theft too. I’m really looking forward to a May new release, the Rules of Disappearing.
