Great Reads – Part ll

I know that I am always looking for good books to read so I thought I’d share some that I have come across lately.  I have a Kindle and I have been trying to spend little to no money on books.  If you have an Amazon Prime membership, you can borrow one book a month for free and they also offer a soon to be released book for free.  They also offer new  $2 books each week.  I have been taking advantage of all those perks.

I was talking with a friend yesterday and she told me that she doesn’t pay for any books on her Kindle.  She uses the Noblenet/Overdrive website/app to borrow e-books from the local library.  I live in MA and this is the website for my area.  I’m not sure if it is nationwide or not, so you would have to contact your local library to see what system to which it is connected.  You also need a library card for your local library. You can be put on waitlists if books are currently checked out and they email you when the books are available.

girl in ice

The Girl in the Ice by Robert Bryndza is a psychological, cop thriller which deals with a serial killer and an entitled rich family.  If you like cop thrillers that have twists and turns, you’ll love this book.  It is .99 cents on Amazon.  (I do not have affiliate links with Amazon.  I’m just placing links to Amazon because I find it the easiest and best ebook retailer.)

hour of need

Hour of Need by Melinda Leigh was another psychological thriller that was unsettling to me when I first started to read it.  There are deaths in it and children who end up without parents, which really bothered me.  There is also a bullying story line, which was also unsettling to me.  It didn’t keep me from continuing and finishing the book, but just a heads up to anyone who is bothered by those topics.  The story kept moving and was well written so if you like suspense, it’s worth a look.  You can borrow this free if you have Amazon Prime.


Vanished by Kendra Elliot was another cop/FBI thriller about child abduction.  It was a very fast moving story and I did enjoy, although it was another unsettling topic.  This book is the first in the Callahan & McLane series).  I personally love series because you get to really know the characters and see how they react and work in different situations.  Another book you can borrow free with Amazon Prime.

I am currently reading the second book in the Callahan & McLane series and it is called Bridged.  I will include it in my next Good Reads update.

What is your favorite genre of book?  Do you have a favorite series?
