Goodie Basket (4): Weekly Book Haul and Recap


Goodie Basket... is a weekly feature hosted here at Word Spelunking that showcases all the goodies (books, bookish things, reviews, interviews/giveaways/guest posts, blog tours, etc) that popped up in the Goodie Basket that is Word Spelunking each week.

I've yet to start this series but at only $1.99 for Kindle I just had to get it!

Glow (Sky Chasers, #1)
Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan
This is another series I've yet to start but at $2.99 I couldn't pass up the deal

Tempting the Best Man (Gamble Brothers, #1)

Beta looks really interesting! I'm holding myself back from requesting it. Lots of good ebook sales. I read all three and they were all pretty good. Happy reading!

Looks like you had a really good week for books! I'm yet to get a copy of Anna Dressed in Blood - it's not even available on Kindle in the UK, which sucks!

And those Netgalley titles look awesome!

Have a good week!
