Book Chat – Current Sales & Recent Releases: Where do you find bargain books?

I love when I find a book from my wish list on sale. Since I read a lot of ebooks, I can usually find some pretty good deals and nothing beats finding a good freebie! Here are the most prominent ebook sales I’ve found so far this week that I’ll be adding to my online library.

E-book Sales

For fans of the BDB Series: The King: A Novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood # 12) by J.R. Ward. The ebook is on sale for $5.49 right now on Amazon.  (Genre: Paranormal, Romance, Adult Fiction)

Ebooks for Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series (books 1-7)  are priced between $3.99- $ 4.99 on Amazon, which, I think, is a great deal! (Genre: Historical Fiction, Romance, Fantasy)

I don’t read historical romances that often, but I’ve heard such wonderful things about the Outlander series, and I know some people who subscribed to the cable network Starz  just to watch the series now that it has been adapted for the screen.  I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, so for my birthday, I bought the first book, Outlander, as a treat, and I must say, I  was was quite impressed with the quality of the characters Gabaldon’s has created and her style of writing. The plot is epic, and it will suck you in fairly quickly, but don’t expect to read it in one day.


The first three books of Kristen Ashley’s Unfinished Hero Series are on sale for $.99 each on Amazon. (Genre: NA Fiction)

Odd Thomas (Odd Thomas # 1) by Dean Koontz is only $1.99  at the following online retailers. (Genre: Thriller)

 Recent Releases from My Reading List

Cold Blooded: A Thriller by Matt Cairns was recently released June 28, 2014 and it’s FREE right now on Amazon.

Of Monsters and Madness by Jessica Verday was just released September 9th.
