If you’re new to Hide Your Wallet, this is where we list new releases we’re pretty excited for in the coming month. Each reviewer has a book maximum (five per person), but we’ve separated HYW into two parts. The first HYW of the month will cover books that release from the 1st to the 14th. The second HYW will cover books released from the 15th to the end of the month. We also think this … Continue reading October’s New Releases, Part Two
The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz is $3.49! This is a time travel/time slippage book with some romantic elements. However, be warned that this book deals a lot with grief, if you are particularly sensitive to that. Despite this book being different from Reisz’ Original Sinners series, readers say that the writing is still as compelling.
RECOMMENDED: Ayesha at Last by Uzma Jalaluddin is $2.99! Carrie, who will read any and all Pride and Prejudice retellings, gave this one a B+:
Now THIS is how it’s done! Ayesha At Last is a lovely loose retelling of Pride and Prejudice, with a perfect mix of humor, heartbreak, misunderstandings, and humor. It’s a contemporary set in Canada and the characters are described with empathy and with plenty of surprises.
I’ve been having a lot of trouble finishing books recently. My mind is distracted, and while I can concentrate well enough on the things I need to do for work or around the house, my ability to fall into a book and lose myself there seems to have evaporated. So when I found myself carrying my Kindle from room to room as I went about my business, reading with one eye on the screen while … Continue reading Say Yes to the Duke by Eloisa James

RECOMMENDED: Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn is $2.99 at Amazon! I think this deal started on Friday, so it could end very soon. Aarya gave this one an A:
Love Lettering is a special book that I’ll hold close to my heart for a long time. It’s a quiet romance with quiet protagonists, but sometimes it’s the quiet moments that echo the loudest.
Highland Crown by May McGoldrick is $2.99! Elyse read this one and gave it a C, but notes:
If you like historicals with a lot of fast-paced action and don’t mind insta-love, then this book may work nicely for you.
She also mentioned it feels more like a historical adventure with romantic elements than an outright romance.
Say No to the Duke by Eloisa James is $1.99! This is the latest book in The Wildes of Lindow Castle series and I love the cheekiness of the cover. Readers say this one didn’t live up to their expectations while others really enjoyed the heroine.
Wilde in Love by Eloisa James is $1.99! This is the first book in The Wildes of Lindow Castle. Some readers DNF-ed this on Goodreads citing lack of chemistry between the characters or boredom. However, other fans of James were excited about this new series. Which camp are you in?
The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie is $3.99! This is part of today’s Kindle Daily Deals and is being price-matched at select vendors. Leckie’s Ancillary Justice is a favorite with Carrie and SBTB commenters. Readers loved the Hamlet-inspired plot, but warn that the book contains first and second POV, which takes some getting used to.
RECOMMENDED: A Notorious Vow by Joanna Shupe is $1.99! This was my first Shupe and I loved it. Feel free to read my review, where I gave it an A-:
This book is a gem. It gave me those starry-eyed, book-drunk feelings that were very reminiscent of when I finished my first Lisa Kleypas historical.
