Indie-Mas is my annual recap of all the great independently-published books I read in the previous year. I like to take this time to share the love–both by helping promote great indie books and giving them away! So without further ado…
On the eleventh day of Indie-Mas, my author gave to me:
A feisty woman who can raise the dead
My favorite kind of love triangle
A New Orleans-based Fantasy with a Snarky Fairy
An Elemental Epic Fantasy
A Steampunk Dystopian
A Male-POV of my favorite trilogy
A Twin with Problems
An epic fantasy that left me breathless
Liz Lemon, Vampire Slayer
A Worldwide Urban Fantasy
A Ghost-Hunting Story that Surprised Me
This one surprised me! I’m not one for ghost stories, but this really got me. It’s got an enthralling mystery that really kept me on the edge of my seat.
Jess is my favorite kind of damaged, snarkmaster heroine. She’s reeling from the suicide of her mother and trying to move on while being a freshman in college. But slowly she gets sucked into the paranormal happenings around the school and she starts to realize these ghosts are anything but normal. There’s a non-traditional twist thrown in the end that opens the door for more fun in the next two books which really left me smiling.
Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper by JL Bryan http://jlbryanbooks.com/books/elliejordanseries.html
It’s a fun series, urban fantasy, about ghost hunting. I recommend it. 🙂
Favorite ghost story was a couple of different short stories in Trigger Warning, again by Neil Gaiman.
I haven’t read any ghost stories this year but I did come across one of my old favorites in my friend’s basement when I was going through her books. It’s More Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark. I also came across several GOOSEBUMPS books. Those scared the crap out of me as a child! Maybe this coming year I’ll go back and read some. ?? ?
The Lovely Bones. That’s kind of a ghost story, I’d say. This one sounds good too. I love a good ghost story!
