Thursday Thirteen 448: Recently acquired

Owing to a lack of time and any other ideas, here is a list of some of the most recent ebooks books purchased. I receive daily emails from Goodreads, Bookbub and B&N featuring specials -- books that are on sale for $2.99 or less -- and sometimes it's difficult to resist temptation with prices far below the normal price. Some of these I had heard of, some I had not, and I've found a few books that looked interesting through these sources. And, as some may expect from me, it's a variety of genres: romance/women's fiction, mystery, literary fiction, and even a nonfiction selection. Now to actually read some of them . . . .

I'm linking titles to Goodreads, so that no one can accuse me of trying to sell something, or represent any particular company. Click on any link for more information!

1. Ten Beach Road by Wendy Wax (Women's Fiction)

2. A Proposal to Die For by Vivian Conroy (Cozy Mystery)

3. Shadow and Silk by Elizabeth Lowell (orig. published as Amy Maxwell)

4. The Paris Wife by Paula McLain (Historical Fiction)

5. The Paris Architect by Charles Belfoure (Historical Fiction)

6. Friday the Rabbi Slept Late by Harry Kemelman (Cozy mystery series that looked fun)

7. Picture Perfect by Jodi Picoult (Women's Fiction)

8. The Dressmaker by Kate Alcott (Historical Fiction)

9. Never Seduce a Scot by Maya Banks (Historical romance)

10. The Romanov Sisters: The Lost Lives of the Daughters of Nicholas and Alexandria by Helen Rappaport (Collection of diary entries and letters written by the four sisters)

11. The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen (Fiction)

12. The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan (Young Adult fantasy)

13. Also Known As by Robin Benway (YA; the cover and story description reminded me of Ally Carter's "Gallagher Girls" series, which I love)

Mind you, these are merely a few recent purchases for the Nook. There have been plenty of print selections, too.

So... How about you? Have you bought any books (ebook or print) recently?

Some of these are on my wish list, I think. Mostly I download free books on my Kindle, and then read them at the doctor's office. I have so many books in my TBR stack that I am not buying any at the moment, until that has been cleared up.

I am hoping that my eye surgery will eventually enable me to read more books. I already have my kindle on the largest font and still have problems when I am tired. My book bub has a lot of interesting titles.

Hey there, Bee Bee. I've always loved your lists of books. Thank you!
To answer your question, I just bought a knitting pattern book.

@ Katie: Ouch! I'd forgotten to say best wishes for your eyes. I know what a struggle it is.

Heather said...

Anita: A few had been on my wishlist for some time, while I had never heard of others. I doubt I will ever make it through all the books in Mount TBR, but at the same time -- I can never complain I have nothing to read. '-D

Katie: I hope your surgery goes well, and that you will be reading again soon!

Zippi Kit: Thanks, I'm glad there are people who like my book lists. Have fun with the knitting!

I try to get my books from the library. Right now I'm reading "A Really Good Day." It's about micro-dosing with LSD for depression and other mental conditions.

Colleen: Unfortunately, the library isn't a convenient option for me while (ironically) their used book sale outlet is.
