November Digital Haul: So Many Kindle Sales!

November 28, 2018

Usually, I put my entire haul in one post, but a poll on twitter this week showed a pretty heavy vote in favor of splitting the posts up and giving a little extra information on the ARCs and Kindle Sales, so here is the digital half of the haul!

I’ll add a short synopsis for the eARCs in case anyone wants to request them, but the ebook list is just too long, so I’ll only be including pricing for those.

More about Destiny @ Howling Libraries

Just a horror aficionado/geek girl trying to juggle motherhood, reading, blogging, gaming, and everyday life.

      1. Oh noooo haha! It’s funny but I actually didn’t even mean to get it. I was trying to click “more info” and accidentally hit “read” while it was under Read Now status. I literally went, “… well, SHIT.” Hopefully I’ll have better luck with it but I’m not hearing good things so far ?

    1. Nice haul! I just finished You’d Be Mine and I’m curious of what your thoughts will be. I also loved seeing The Uninvited on here! That’s the last book I need to complete my collection 🙂

          1. Ooooh, I’ll go look right now! I’ve had a REALLY crazy week or two and have barely touched my reader or my email blog updates lol, I’m sorry! But I’m glad you enjoyed it even if it wasn’t amazing 🙂

      1. I just felt a little queasy at the thought. ? But imagine if you could get all of them as physical copies at those price points, since most of these were free or a dollar… ? That would be amazing. And thank youuu

            1. Nope, sadly, I think only two of Talia’s books are available in paperback so far! I know she has plans for eventually making paperback options of all of her full novels, but the last I checked, there aren’t any plans to print any of her novellas. 🙁

Say hello! ♥
