Often the books on sale prices are valid for a very limited time, but some of the best deals this month are still going on. So I'm reposting a few of the most popular books that are marked down in price in case you missed one or two.
RECOMMENDED: The Rosie Project is $1.99. This is probably one of the best sales still going on this month. I loved this book, and in my A review I talked about how it made me laugh and sigh and was just so completely enjoyable. I have recommended this book to so many people, all of whom loved it. I hope, if you're curious, you'll grab a copy at the $2 price! I know many of you have – and you've emailed me to say how much you liked it (yay!).
MEET DON TILLMAN, a brilliant yet socially challenged professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. And so, in the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers.
Rosie Jarman is all these things. She also is strangely beguiling, fiery, and intelligent. And while Don quickly disqualifies her as a candidate for the Wife Project, as a DNA expert Don is particularly suited to help Rosie on her own quest: identifying her biological father. When an unlikely relationship develops as they collaborate on the Father Project, Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie—and the realization that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love, it finds you.
Arrestingly endearing and entirely unconventional, Graeme Simsion’s distinctive debut will resonate with anyone who has ever tenaciously gone after life or love in the face of great challenges. The Rosie Project is a rare find: a book that restores our optimism in the power of human connection.
RECOMMENDED BY AMANDA: As Hard As It Gets by Laura Kaye is $1.99. This is book one of the Hard Ink series, which, according to GoodReads is about, “about four ex-soldiers who run a renegade operation against an organized crime ring out of the back of a tattoo shop.” Like you do.
Amanda recommended this title, saying, “I actually just bought this book over the winter break. I took back some Christmas gifts to buy books….” Again, like you do.
Trouble just walked into Nicholas Rixey's tattoo parlor. Becca Merritt is warm, sexy, wholesome–pure temptation to a very jaded Nick. He's left his military life behind to become co-owner of Hard Ink Tattoo, but Becca is his ex-commander's daughter.
Loyalty won't let him turn her away. Lust has plenty to do with it too.
With her brother presumed kidnapped, Becca needs Nick. She just wasn't expecting to want him so much. As their investigation turns into all-out war with an organized crime ring, only Nick can protect her. And only Becca can heal the scars no one else sees.
Desire is the easy part. Love is as hard as it gets. Good thing Nick is always up for a challenge…
Cry No More by Linda Howard is $1.99.
When I posted this book sale and tweeted about it, the responses were almost unanimous: “OH MY GOD THAT BOOK MADE ME WEEEEP.” This story is a emotionally-gutpunching tearjerker, so if you need some catharsis, it's right here. So many people said this is one of Howard's strongest books for the emotions and the characters, and it's very powerful.
I estimate, as I said previously, that on The Uglycry Scale of 1 to The Fault In Our Stars, this is probably an 8.5.
Fueled by an obsession to fill the void in other people’s lives, Milla Edge finds lost children—all the while trying to outrun the brutal emotions stemming from a tragedy in her past.
Traveling to a small village in Mexico on a reliable tip, Milla begins to uncover the dire fate of countless children who have disappeared in the labyrinth of a sinister baby-smuggling ring.
The key to nailing down the organization may rest with an elusive one-eyed man. As Milla’s search for him intensifies, the mission becomes more treacherous.
For the ring is part of something far larger and more dangerous, reaching the highest echelons of power. Racing into peril, Milla suddenly finds herself the hunted—in the crosshairs of an invisible, lethal assassin who aims to silence her permanently.
RECOMMENDED: To Marry an English Lord is $2.99.
Carrie S reviewed this book and gave it an A+. This is historical nonfiction about the American heiresses who came over to England and married themselves some titles.
Carrie wrote in her review, The gossip is juicy. The psychology is interesting, if mostly superficial – who lived to party all the time, and why, and what were the parties like and how much did they cost? Who dedicated themselves to Good Works, and why, and what did they do? Who took to their beds? What historical events were prompting all these American heiresses to marry overseas?
When I first posted this sale, author Deanna Raybourn said, “SUPERB book–bought the first edition ages ago & new one is even better.”
From the Gilded Age until 1914, more than 100 American heiresses invaded Britannia and swapped dollars for titles–just like Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, the first of the Downton Abbey characters Julian Fellowes was inspired to create after reading To Marry An English Lord.
Filled with vivid personalities, gossipy anecdotes, grand houses, and a wealth of period details–plus photographs, illustrations, quotes, and the finer points of Victorian and Edwardian etiquette–To Marry An English Lord is social history at its liveliest and most accessible.
