For Review

GRave IntentionsSister Assassin

Grave Intentions looks pretty interesting and I like the cover. Paranormal-Romance which is basically the genre I like to drool over, like some people binge on Contemporary, this is my binge. So hopefully it should be good, I’ve yet to read a reaper story. Thanks to Kensington Books. Then I have Sister Assassin, which I know is also called Mind Games for the rest of the world, but the UK like to be different. I’ve heard some good things, so I can’t wait to get onto this, thanks to HarperCollins UK.

Bought for Kindle:

Crime and PunishmentTaking ChancesOnce Burnedf

Crime and Punishment was 49p and somebody recommended it to me with high praise, and I feel like I need to broaden my reading to something more “intellectual” so I thought why not prepare myself for this hell. Taking Chances is a book I’ve heard very mixed thoughts on, but I thought why not, again it was 49p on kindle. Once Burned. I picked this up to read the other week and totally forgot and I still haven’t read it. I literally adore Jeaniene Frost, but I have had NO motivation to read or time and so I haven’t managed to read this real steal novel at £1.99 for my kindle.

Wild EncounterYou Had Me At Hello

After reading Rachel’s review of Wild Encounter over at The Reader’s Den, I knew I had to get myself a copy of Wild Encounter. And I’ve been in a little bit of a reading funk as of late and I’ve had little time to read, but I managed to squeeze this in and trust me, it does not disappoint, so look out for my review later in the week!

Then I have You Had Me At Hello. This was an entire accident and it’s contemporary chick-lit, the genre I probably hate with a passion after some very bad books. I clicked buy by accident and so now I’m stuck with the thing for my kindle. It was only 99p so I’m not too put out, but I’ll probably give it a try because it doesn’t sound too bad actually which is always a positive.

Free Kindle Books

BeowulfBleak HouseComplete Sherlock Holmes

Beowulf. What am I doing with my life? Poetry. Well again this is something I feel obligated to read to help my history studies. Then I have Bleak House, I’m adding to my collection of Classics to read one day. Then The Complete Sherlock Holmes collection got released for free on the kindle and I’ve always wanted to read it so I snapped it up.

The Earl's Inconvenient WifeDavid Copperfield

Then there is The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife and David Copperfield, both look appealing in some weird way I’m sure. Sometimes I think I only click them because they’re free and I may at some point in the future run out of books enough to read them.

  1. I’ve seen mixed reviews on Taking Chances too, but I look forward to seeing what you think. Grave Intentions sounds pretty good, as does Sister Assassin. I hope you enjoy them!

    Wonderful haul, Livvy. I love the new festive look over here! 🙂

      Hopefully I’ll be able to enjoy it. It certainly does, I’m looking forward to that one! Thank you.

      So do I, thought I needed something to get me more into the Christmas mood! 🙂

      I hope I enjoy it because I really like all the drama TV shows and films, I’ve just never gotten around to reading it.

      Thanks for dropping by! 🙂

    Sister Assassins looks really good. Albeit that particular cover, versus the US’s Mind Games looks a bit more creeptastic.

    I also grabbed the complete Sherlock Holmes for my Kindle though I didn’t include it in my StS’s post this week. I seem to keep accumulating huge stacks of classics, both for my Kindle and physical books with no idea when I’ll get to most of them. Oh, well.

    New follower, happy reading! :]

      It does, I have to agree with you there about it being ever so creepy, but I like creepy.
      Yes, I don’t usually add my free kindle books, but when I first started my post I didn’t have all that many books, but it seemed to accumulate and I just left them.
      I know exactly what you mean about having lots of books though. Thanks for the follow! 🙂

  4. So thrilled you enjoyed Wild Encounter. Can’t wait for your review! I’ve seen some pretty passionate reviews on Taking Chances and for now, I’m passing on that one. I wonder what you’ll make of it. I still need to finish The Night Huntress series before I start on Once Burned. I really have enjoyed the first too books, I just haven’t had time to read the others. Enjoy your reads Livvy. 🙂

    • Livvy @Nerdy Book Reviews

      I’ll hopefully be getting around to it soon. I wouldn’t have heard about it without you. So thanks.

      Yes, I don’t know how it’ll be, but hopefully it’ll be good.

      Oh, finish the series soon because it’s brilliant. I really love it and I can’t wait to get around to starting Once Burned.

      Thank you! 🙂

  5. Sister Assassin/Mind Games sounds so cool. I hope you enjoy it!

    I like the new blog look! Very Christmassy!

    And I hope Taking Chances is good, I like the look of the cover!

  7. I love Beowulf and Sherlock Holmes! 🙂

Thanks for dropping by, I really appreciate every single view. If you're a fellow blogger I'll return follows/comments. Unfortunately this is an award and tag free zone because of time constraints, but I appreciate the thought.
