Lots of great free books today! Let’s get to it, shall we? And as always…these look good to me, but in most cases I haven’t read them yet. Maybe I liked the cover, or the summary, or they might have a ton of great reviews. Many things could catch the Booknista’s eye. Drumroll please…
Can we overcome our past? As my 10th grade physics teacher Mr. Mose would say…that’s the question on the floor.
Katie Parker is about to get a new life—whether she wants one or not. With her mom in prison, and her father AWOL, Katie is sent to live with a squeaky-clean family who could have their own sitcom. Poor girl, her life is a wreck and it doesn’t sound funny at all. She launches a full-scale plan to get sent back to the girls’ home when she finds herself in over her head…and heart. Oh yes…do I detect some romance? #BeStillMyAchingHeart When Katie and her new “wrong crowd” get into significant trouble at school, she finds her punishment is restoring a historic theater with a crazy grandma who goes by the name of Mad Maxine. In the midst of her punishment, Katie uncovers family secrets that run deep, and realizes she’s not the only one with a pain-filled past. Katie must decide if she’ll continue her own family’s messed up legacy or embrace a new beginning in this place called In Between.
Free Book #2 Daughter of The Red Dawn
So, I like shapeshifter books. #DontJudgeMe That’s what got me on this one, the big old wolf on the cover.
On the outside, seventeen year-old Selena McKinley is like any other teenage girl. Of course she is, tell me more. Yet Selena has always felt as if she doesn’t belong and is counting the days to graduation and her freedom from the small town that makes her feel so out of place. Small towns = boring. I know, I know…many of you disagree, but they’re a big yawn to me, too. Amen to Sister Selena. The arrival of a stranger turns her world upside down. Oh my. Selena will learn just how different she is and the truth of where she comes from.
A lost princess, they call her, the catalyst for a war involving a world that Selena was taken from as a child. An evil queen obsessed with her own beauty with a plan to enslave the human race.…the notion seems so silly, yet Selena knows in her heart that it is true. Evil queens are never a good thing. Then there is Titus, the shape shifter whose blue eyes and claims of destiny hold her heart captive. Ahhh Titus…there’s my shapeshifter fix. Can Selena find the strength to do what she must while following her heart? The Booknista sure hopes so.
Free Book #3 Halo Bound
Why’d I choose it? Look at the cover. It’s bad ass. And, the word Redneck is in the series title. I can appreciate that.
Here’s the deal. The holy champion chosen to save the world is enslaved to a sadistic fallen angel and losing the battle for his sanity. What’s worse then that? Welll…read on. The guy chosen to save the holy champion is his binge-drinking redneck brother.
Meet the Whitney boys:
Colt—a mentally unstable holy soldier with a rapidly deteriorating hold on reality. His last plan to rid the world of evil either failed horribly or went off without a hitch. With the constant torture and brainwashing, it’s getting hard to be sure of anything but the sick attachment he’s developing to his beautiful tormentor. Oh, a beautiful tormentor, well…I do like this turn of events. #LoveIsInTheAir
Tough—a smart-mouthed honky-tonk hero trying to drown his problems in music, women, and good times. And his name is Tough, that must be well, Tough. He hasn’t spoken to Colt in five years—not since their disagreement over a nymphomaniac vampire turned into a drunken slugfest—but they’re still brothers. Tough knows he can’t leave Colt fighting for his life and his sanity alone. The question is whether Tough can fight off his personal demons long enough to save Colt from the literal ones. The Booknista is rooting for him.
Free Book #4 River’s Recruit
As mentioned above…I dig shapeshifter books. Here’s another one that looked really good. I also like the cover, as I am an archer as well. Here we go…
Jonathan McKnight lost everything in Afghanistan. His left hand, his identical twin, his self-respect and his naive belief that good always triumphs over evil. Ugh, I feel bad for him already. Burdened by grief and guilt, he searches for redemption on a solo backpacking trip into the remote Sawatch Mountains of Colorado and discovers a secret tribe of shifters. A secret tribe of shifters I can visit in Colorado? How is this not on TripAdvisor?
River, the beautiful young shifter that rescues Jonathan has been promised to a man she despises. I’ve seen this before and it’s never good. A man that does not desire her and only wants to use her to achieve his own political goals. Jonathan is more than a romantic rival. He’s a threat to those goals.
The only way to save Jonathan’s life is for River to take him as her recruit. Poor River, taking him in.#SorryNotSorry
As Jonathan learns more about the horrors of River’s cult-like society, he becomes even more determined to escape it, until he learns that River is responsible for everything he does and will be executed if he succeeds. Yikes! Don’t do it!
Escape is not an option—unless Jonathan can persuade River to leave with him. And if she refuses? Well, then, he’ll just have to kidnap her .
Free Book #5 Forever: Book One of The Abandoned
I like the mysterious cover, lots of four and five star reviews. And, the short synopsis got me hooked. It’s a super short book, only 107 pages, what have you got to lose?
Rich, popular Kate Hewitt destroys lives at Sussex High. I really hated High School. Girls could be so mean. Mute, violent Kev Anderwaith hasn’t been to school in months. On the day Kev does return, Kate is shocked when the overgrown, social outcast sits next to her in class and claims they’ve both lived previous lives, and keep finding each other, throughout the centuries, falling in love every time. See? Aren’t you intrigued? I am. #OneClickIt
