Barking Up The Wrong Tree by Jenn McKinlay

Carly DeCusati returned home to Bluff Point, Maine, with her tail between her legs. But she’s determined to get her life back on track - and that means finding new homes for the elderly golden retriever and overly talkative parrot she inherited before her old life fell apart.

Midnight Line by Lee Child
Midnight Line by Lee Child

Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not?

Purchased:


Was able to buy several ebooks with a $5 Amazon credit! Had fun picking which books to choose, but it took longer than expected. Never realized there were so many awesome 99¢ titles out there!

Fate's Fables by T Rae Mitchell
Fate's Fables by T Rae Mitchell

Reality sucks. Make-believe rocks. That's been Fate Floyd's motto for as long as she's been a fantasy geek. But now she can hardly tell what's real and what's not. She's been spelled and mysteriously trapped within a deadly fairy tale world bound by the Book of Fables. Her only way home is to travel through the book's 8 unfortunate fairy tales and change them into happily-ever-afters.

Steampunk Fairy Tales

Written by authors from three different continents, every enchanting tale combines the futuristic Victorian concept of steam and fashion with memorable stories, from the recognizable “Jack and the Beanstalk”, to other popular and unfamiliar works from Germany, France, Italy and Japan.

In Steampunk Fairy Tales Volume II you’ll find whirling airships, puzzling brides, wheezing drunkards, and evil thief-kings.

I get Amy's newsletter and really enjoy it, so was curious to read one of her books.

Tell Your Time by Amy Lynn Andrews
Tell Your Time by Amy Lynn Andrews

Tell Your Time is a very short, practical ebook outlining a straightforward yet effective approach to time management.

This book came highly recommended in one of my Facebook groups. They suggested this version, as they didn't like the updated one as well. Now I just need to stop procrastinating and actually read it!
