New Releases - Ebooks June & July

I love shopping, don't you?

There's the sense of anticipation and tingling excitement as you browse, as myriad colors from the covers on the shelves bloomed in your vision. Then the agonizing--"Will I get this?", "Is this within my budget?", "Squee! It's here, it's here! But..." And finally, "yay! I can't wait to get home and start reading!"

As with brick-and-mortar shops, so with online stores. Shopping has become easier with the click of a button, the slide of the mouse. As there are lots of epubs and lots of ebooks being published everyday however, there's no way we can cover them all. But I can tell you that with the few that we saw, our imaginations caught fire and we can't help but buy, buy, buy. *poor wallet* And good thing we have DJ's.

So, for the purposes of our blog celebration contest, here are the covers and summaries of ebooks that were published in late June/early July that caught our attention, and which are included in the list of ebooks for giveaway:

That is a lot of releases! I could be broke in a second if I had no self-control...or lived so far away from book as I do ;)

Position Secured is such a dirty title. :)

I sort of feel like some of these covers could really be better. That's partly why I'm not fond of smaller publishing/ebook romances. It seems like they don't care about their authors as much.

But maybe I'm wrong. :)

Carol L. said...

Oh boy, now I'm done for. I'll have to show some real restraint (probably for the first time)towards my spending. :)My TRL pile is so huge at this point it's actually more then one. lol

I'm not really familiar with alot ofthe e-pub authors out there. Time to get crackin'. You've got a great selection here.

Carole said...

@Blodeuedd Ask my wallet! I totally have no self control when it comes to books. *sob*

@Nikola Position Secured is one of the books I bought! It caught me the same way it did you, I'm sure. Regarding the covers, I'm in no position (LOL) to comment, since I'm not sure how they come about.

@E.H> "Yoo hoo...buy me...buy me..." Did you hear that? That's Jaycee Clark's Revenge calling you. LOL

@Leontine You aren't the only one. Everyday, my TBR pile grows...and grows...

@Carol L I got an actual TBR pile and a virtual one, where I list down all the books that caught my attention that I want to read someday. Both are increasing by the day, I should say. LOL

@Scorpio M Yeah, me too. Most of them are new to me too. Seems like a bunch of them pop out every year. Or is it month? LOL But I think it's good, isn't it? The bigger houses didn't want to take on some of these authors because they're not sure of the public's reception, so the epubs took a chance on them and what do you know, gems are revealed. It's wonderful when I find a great read like that. :)

I'm lovin' A LOT of these covers. Gawd, I'm such a cover whore! Ha!

I don't read many ebooks but I've seen one or two of these on NetGalley so I'm thinkin' I need to check 'em out.

Thanks for the heads up!

s7anna said...

Those are some wicked books! My wallet is groaning at the thought of new books - I always have such little self-control. *sigh*

Elie said...

Wow there are a ton of new titles coming out. Hot stuff!

Sara said...

All these covers look exciting! Off to check them out!

Erica Anderson said...

Thanks for the mention of my science fiction erotic romance The Antaren Affair. It's my first effort at SF, so I'm really looking forward to reader response. (And IMHO, the cover is pretty good compared with a lot of SF covers, but I know what you're talking about, Nikola.) Carole is sponsoring a giveaway of the book sometime soon and I'm working on selecting an excerpt for her now. It's great to see a site with such enthusiastic readers!

Jennifer Leeland said...

"Twice Shy" is an AWESOME book. I love Loribelle's stuff!
My wallet too is groaning.

Silver @ TRR said...

I hear you about the wallet. I need a dedicated ereader for all the ebooks I'm buying!

Michelle Pillow said...
