Freebie Friday 49: Summer is Here!


Happy Friday!

Summer is here and I want to be sure you have enough to read…

So far, I haven't had much time to tackle my TBR pile. Things have been really busy, but I'm hoping that I can make more time soon.

Tell me … what's on your summer reading pile?

And just in case you need a few new things, here are the Freebie Friday offerings for today. The winner can choose any one of these:



The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen -- Sarah Dessen books are the perfect summer read!

This Is WAR by Laura and Lisa Roecker -- a tale of revenge set in a beach community. 
Releases on July 2nd.

Replica by Jenna Black -- I loved her Faeriewalker series -- this is a  YA sci-fi that releases July 16.

Belle Epoque by Elizabeth Ross -- turn-of-the-century France, the marriage market, girl power. 
This one was a lot of fun to read!

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey -- do you feel like you're the only one who hasn't read this alien invasion book? I'm here to help….

Gated by Amy Christine Parker -- a gated community, an end-of-the-world prophecy…. 
this one releases on August 27.

International readers are welcome to enter! They will win any book that costs $10 USD or less from the Book Depository. US winner can choose this option as well.


This Freebie Friday has ended, but follow me to participate another week!

  3. On the very top of my TBR pile is Dirty Little Secret because it's what's next on the schedule. ;) But what I'd really love to move to the top is Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. Maybe I'll compromise, and after I read DLS, I'll allow myself to cheat and read BtDatDBS. :) Happy Friday!

  46. There are SO many and it just depends on my mood which one will be at the top at any given moment, and also if I can get the book or not, but a few from the top right now are The Program, The 5th Wave, When You Were Here, Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, Cinder, Scarlet, Black City, Phoenix, the Starcrossed series, Article 5 and Breaking Point, Insomnia, Linked, Golden, The Moon and More, Gated, Charm & Strange, Parallel, and so many more. Most of these I don't own though, so reading them depends on being able to find them at the library or as a library ebook. Thanks for the giveaway!

    My email will be in the Google doc, I don't check the email associated with this account.

    ReplyDelete
  47. At the top of my TBR list you ask ? Currently its Neptune's Tears by Susan Waggoner and The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen. But it may change since there's lots of more good books coming out this week!

I always just grab what I'm in the mood for but there are some popular books I'd like to finally get to like Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Black City, Under The Never Sky, The 5th Wave, and Girl in the Steel Corset. I want to get through all my signed books like Don't Turn Around, The Sky Is Everywhere, Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children, and Through The Ever Night. Just got ordered two hardbacks on a great sale at Amazon too, Winter Town and The Queen of Kentucky. So I have more than enough to keep me busy!

  62. I am going to count August as Summer. Kids aren't in school for the whole month, so that counts right? That being said, the book that first comes to mind that I am seriously looking forward to is Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan. I adored Unspoken, and I am hoping that Untold blows my expectations out of the water! There are MANY others that I am looking forward to as well, but that tops the list tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I do not have a summer reading pile. I never had one. A lot of people tend to read 'summery' books during the summer, but I was never one of them.

    Great books, though. They sound good.
