Free e-books, my recommendations

I have nothing to disclose. Blurb sources from, image sources google search.

I mentioned in yesterday's blog post that I've been reading free Kindle books from Amazon, so I thought today I would recommend some of those for you. I'll probably do this monthly or every few months to help me keep track of my reading list as well :)


Alex Finch: Monster Hunter (The Monster Files Book 1) by Cate Dean

Meet Alex Finch - tomboy, techno geek, monster hunter.

Reluctant monster hunter.

A school project, an absentminded project partner, and a misplaced backpack all change 16-year-old Alex Finch's life forever.

In a single afternoon Alex finds the missing backpack, has a run-in with Sam,  the boy she's had a crush on since first grade - and discovers that monsters are real.

That mind-blowing incident throws her life in a completely different direction, uncovering secrets that cost her more than she could ever imagine. And the further she digs, the darker and more dangerous the secrets become.

What else is hiding behind the ordinary facade of her California beach town?

Alex is about to find out.

Ache: The Punk Series, Book 1 by PJ Post

His only refuge is his music. His only solace is his rage.

Connor Clay abandoned any hope of escaping his troubled life long ago and has immersed himself in the hardcore punk scene, living every day as if it were his last. But in the scorching summer of 1982, he meets Shauna, an upper middle-class girl that seems to be everything he wants and needs.

Unfortunately, she also represents everything that he hates.

ACHE is the first book of the Punk series. It is intended for 18+ audiences due to pervasive language and adult themes and situations.

Enchantment (The Channie Series Book 1) by Charlotte Abel

When Channie Belks moves from her home in the Ozark mountains to a suburban Colorado high school, she tries to hide the fact she's a mage. It might have worked until her parents slapped a chastity curse on her for flirting with "dirty-minded, non-magical, city-boys." She can't even walk by a hot guy without zapping him.
There's a way to break the curse; but one mistake could kill her. It's not worth the risk. Until she meets Josh…a BMX champion with a dazzling smile, washboard abs and the bluest eyes she’s ever seen.
Suddenly, the threat of death isn't such a deal-breaker. 

Alliance (Unholy Alliance Book 1) by Lacy and Haley Yager
How do you choose between destiny and love?  
Forever seventeen, vampire Maggie Wells has spent her life in the shadows. A master at blending in, she lives among the troubled teens she's made it her mission to protect, along with her best friend and witch, Hannah Morgan.  
Eighteen-year-old Shane Campton knows his destiny: he was born to kill vampires. When he crosses paths with Maggie, the only thing that keeps her alive are the witnesses present.  
When Shane's younger sister, a mysterious supernatural, needs Maggie help, Shane is torn between his duty to kill and his sister's safety. He starts to get to know Maggie, and finds there is much more to her than he thought. But Maggie has a secret past that could destroy them all. 

I've read the entire Alliance series so far, and really enjoyed it. Very easy reading.

Dangerous (Element Preservers Book 1) by Alycia Linwood

In the world of elemental magic, losing your heart to the wrong person might be more dangerous than having magic disease...

Ria is an 18-year-old girl who has just started going to the University of Magic, a special university for those who have one of the four elements: fire, water, air and earth. There she meets Michael, a boy whose element is different from hers, which makes their romantic involvement seem impossible because mixing of elements can have horrible consequences. She also feels threatened by Adrian, a very dangerous magic disease carrier. Ria's best friend, Paula, is fascinated by Adrian like most of the girls at the University and wants him to help her with her research about the disease. All Ria's beliefs are put to test when she starts having the symptoms of the disease and the only person she can turn to is Adrian.

Young Adult/New Adult Fantasy/Romance for mature teens. 

 If you can get past the absolutely horrible grammar which pops up from time to time, this series is excellent.

I'm looking forward to reading more from all of these authors in the future. In the meantime, I have a list of other books to read that is about a mile long. If you haven't checked out Amazon for their free Kindle books, you definitely should! They have a huge range of different books available.
