*Post Reading Time: 00:08:38*
These are books that are being offered for free on Kobo; an ereader app and also a bookstore. Probably for promotion. But I’ve read some of the ones offered before * Huge parenthesis warning, I won’t blame you if you skip it 😂* (like Never Forgotten, almost made me cry, that one, but I LOVED it so much. I could swear, though, the girl on the cover is on EVERY cover ever and in the same position, WHYYY. Never Forgotten is a YA paranormal romance, on which, you might comment and be like ‘GASP! since when do u like romance ?’ and you’d have a point, because I don’t usually read a book that’s mostly just about romance, but Never Forgotten just took over my heart, sorry I made this parenthesis way too long so that you probably most likely definitely completely forgot what I said before and won’t understand what I’ll say after this ends, so I’ll be a helpful little potato and teml you that I was saying I read some of the books offered there before), and I really liked what I read, so I took the opportunity again to get some more and add them to my TBR !
I’m super excited to read these; each of their synopsis(es ? Synopsi ? What ??) sound super intriguing !
By the way, I’m not being paid or anything of the sort, I just wanted to share these findigs with you and hopefully get you intrigued so we can discuss them when we read them !
Rescued by Lauren Hope
‘ Reese Sheppard has worked for a decade building her business and unshakable reputation to create a thriving, no-kill sanctuary for the animals of Sullivan County, Tennessee. Then, a crime spree begins—spreading three counties wide and growing in violence with each new victim, all of whom point the finger at Reese as the culprit.
Not only facing jail time, the allegations also threaten to ruin everything Reese has worked for professionally and personally. But evidence doesn’t lie. And it’s all pointing to no one else but her . . .’
The House of Closed Doors by Jane Steen
‘ In Nell Lillington’s small Midwestern town of the 1870s, marriage is the obvious fate of a young woman of some social standing. Yet Nell is determined to elude the duties and restrictions of matrimony. So when she finds herself pregnant at the age of 17, she refuses to divulge the name of the father and even her childhood friend Martin is kept in the dark.
Nell’s stepfather Hiram sends Nell to live at the Poor Farm of which he is a governor, to await the day when her baby can be discreetly adopted. Nell is ready to go along with Hiram’s plans until an unused padded cell is opened and two small bodies fall out.’

Warpworld Vol. I by Joshua Simpson
‘ On his first crossing through the warps, Seg discovers a world rich in vita – fuel to save his dying world. Cold, brilliant and desperate to prove himself as a Cultural Theorist, Seg breaks away from the recon squad sent to protect him, to scout out prime vita sources. But to find his prize he must face his biggest fear: water.
Fiery and headstrong, Ama receives an ultimatum from her people’s tyrannical overlords: betray her own kind or give up the boat she calls home, forever. When a wealthy traveler hires her as a guide, Ama thinks her prayers are answered – until a violent murder reveals Seg’s true identity.
On the run, over land and water, hunted by a ruthless and relentless tracker, and caught in the schemes of a political powerhouse, Seg and Ama will have to strike an uneasy truce to survive.
The fate of two worlds is in their hands. ’
Lirium by Susan Kaye Quinn
‘ Lirium plays the part of the grim reaper well, with his dark trenchcoat and jackboots—he’s just in it for his cut, ten percent of the life energy he collects before he transfers it on to the high potentials, people who will make the world a better place with their work and their lives. That hit of life energy, a bottle of vodka, and a visit from one of Madam Anastazja’s girls keep him alive, stable, and mostly sane… until he collects again. But when his recovery ritual is disrupted, he has to choose between doing an illegal hit for a girl whose story has more holes than his soul or facing the bottle alone—a dark pit he’s not sure he’ll be able to climb out of again. ’
Of Ice and Snow by Amber Argyle
‘ Otec thought destiny forgot him…
The middle child of the clanchief, Otec is the overlooked son in an overflowing house. He dreams of escape and adventure, so when a mysterious stranger offers both, he doesn’t need persuading. But when his faraway village comes under attack, Otec will do anything to save the people he loves. Cut off from his nation, he must trust a foreign woman with a dubious past as they race to save his clan. But nothing is what it seems, and Otec may have to trust his enemy if he is to become the leader he was never meant to be.
Destiny is not always kind. ’
Guess that’s it ! I’m reaaaally looking forward to reading Voiceless and Lirium, if I could pick favorites.
