What I bought in October? I’ve been lazy this past two months, after my vacation I pretty much stopped reading, maybe because the book I’m reading right now isn’t that appealing and I was quite busy in September, so I waited to buy books till the very last day of the month :oops:
Anyway, here they are.
Ashes to Ashes by Tami Hoag.
This was on my “waiting for eBook list” for a long time so when Kobo finally published and discounted I had to have it. This is the first book in the Kovac and Liska Series.
He performs his profane ceremony in a wooded Minneapolis park, anointing his victims, then setting the bodies ablaze. He has already claimed three lives, and he won’t stop there. Only this time there is a witness. But she isn’t talking.
Enter Kate Conlan, former FBI agent turned victim/witness advocate. Not even she can tell if the reluctant witness is a potential victim or something more troubling still. Her superiors are interested only because the latest victim may be the daughter of Peter Bondurant, an enigmatic billionaire. When Peter pulls strings, Special Agent John Quinn gets assigned to the case. But the FBI’s ace profiler of serial killers is the last person Kate wants to work with, not with their troubled history. Now she faces the most difficult role of her career—and her life. For she’s the only woman who has what it takes to stop the killer . . . and the one woman he wants next.
This is what I bought in September, not much because I couldn’t look at Kobo website a lot since I was busy, but I did buy a little bit:
Lycke by Mikaela Bley.
New author for me and new series. This is the first book in the Emma Tamm’s Series.
‘Death, death, death,’ she whispered to herself. But it was already too late. The panic was growing inside her.
On a cold and stormy Friday in May, a young girl disappears without a trace from outside Stockholm’s Royal Tennis Hall.
The missing girl is Lycke, and assigned to report on her story is TV4’s hot-headed crime reporter Ellen Tamm. As the police begin their search, Ellen starts her own investigation, delving into Lycke’s life: her family, the nanny, the kids who taunted her at school.
As Ellen is drawn deeper into a tangle of secrets, lies, and betrayals — and frustrated by the odd behavior of Lycke’s family, as well as corrupt police, her upstart new boss, and the disturbing threats being made against her — she becomes more and more possessed by the task she has been given, tortured by the echoes of her own past, of the darkness that haunts her. Will she find Lycke before it is too late for either of them?
This is what I bought in July, oh man! Kobo had a .99 book sale, you can bet I bought everything and more:
Abbandoned by Cody McFadyen.
Fourth book in Smoky Barrett Series. I had to buy this book in English because sold out in Italian and no Italian kobo version
The woman had been missing for almost eight years.
Someone watched her, stalked her, kidnapped her, and held her captive in the dark all that time. No ransom demand, and no suspects. No answers, even now that the woman has been found – thrown from an unmarked car in front of a beach-side wedding – alive but unbearably traumatized. All she can do is scream. Tracking a kidnapper who appears to have no motive, FBI Special Agent Smoky Barrett and her team are plunged into the most sinister and disturbing case of their careers.Then they start to find the others.
Here another book haul, this time for June. Again I couldn’t resist, Kobo does pretty good promotions and I think I have a shopping (for books) addiction.
Let’s see what I bought in June (I need to say though, not much).
Since February 2016 I read books with my Kobo eReader. I didn’t like it at first but I had to come to this compromise because I didn’t have any more space in my library. I’m a book addicted and I don’t know how many books I bought since last year because of discounts and promotions on the Kobo website. Thankfully I have them all in !one book”.
I bought 6 books in May here they are:
