It has been SUCH a good book week for me! But also, stressful, deciding which ones to read! Sometimes, I don’t have a say in the matter. If I’m signed up for a blitz or review tour, obviously my review needs to be finished my scheduled date. With ARCs, I need to have the review written by the time the book comes out.
But this week, I have so many ARCs that I’ve been waiting a long time for, and I have awhile to read them all. HOW DO I DECIDE?!?! I read Beauty and the Mustache by Penny Reid on Friday afternoon (holla for a half day!) Penny just made it available for preorder, and guys, you HAVE to buy it!
While reading that and checking my Facebook and email occasionally, I found out that I had No Weddings and All Broke Down waiting for me! So now I’m making my way through No Weddings since it has an earlier release date, while obsessively avoiding the ABD discussion thread in Cora Carmack’s street team group.
Anyway, I’m rambling, so on to the sales! There are a LOT this week, so yay!
The spiel, shortened: These are all books that I can personally recommend. I’m not going to suggest you buy a book when I don’t know if I think it’s good or not.

If I Were You by Lisa Renee Jones – On Sale for $1.99
One day I was a high school teacher on summer break, leading a relatively uneventful but happy life. Or so I told myself. Later, I’d question that, as I would question pretty much everything I knew about me, my relationships, and my desires. It all began when my neighbor thrust a key to a storage unit at me. She’d bought it to make extra money after watching some storage auction show. Now she was on her way to the airport to elope with a man she barely knew, and she needed me to clear out the unit before the lease expired.
Soon, I was standing inside a small room that held the intimate details of another woman’s life, feeling uncomfortable, as if I was invading her privacy. Why had she let these items so neatly packed, possessions that she clearly cared about deeply, be lost at an auction? Driven to find out by some unnamed force, I began to dig, to discover this woman’s life, and yes, read her journals–dark, erotic journals that I had no business reading. Once I started, I couldn’t stop. I read on obsessively, living out fantasies through her words that I’d never dare experience on my own, compelled by the three men in her life, none of whom had names. I read onward until the last terrifying dark entry left me certain that something had happened to this woman. I had to find her and be sure she was okay.
Before long, I was taking her job for the summer at the art gallery, living her life, and she was nowhere to be found. I was becoming someone I didn’t know. I was becoming her.
The dark, passion it becomes…
