I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow when you see all the wonderful books everyone gets. You will discover lots of great blogs and lots of books that you won't be able to live without.

This was a quiet book week for me this week as I transition between my summer home and my school year home. I switched all my book orders to my school year address and expect quite a stack when I get back home. This week I added some books to my Kindle, though.
I did a little more shopping while the Georgette Heyer books were $1.99. I chose two more mysteries that I haven't read.

I added these free books too.
Chosen by Paula Bradley is a combination of thriller and paranormal. From the product description: Chosen introduces readers to a remarkably complex, achingly human, and absolutely unforgettable heroine. Bursting with tension, danger, and the thrill of the unexplained, Chosen is a singular reading experience.

The Witch of Agnesi by Robert Spiller features a math teacher who is investigating the disappearance of some of her students and discovers lots of things she didn't know about her community.

I also added couple of novellas to my Kindle too.
Devil to Pay by Jeaniene Frost originally appeared in the Four Dukes and a Devil anthology which I don't have. 

The Vampire's Warden by S. J. Wright is part one of a three part series. It is also romantic suspense with vampires.

I also received one book for review:
Echo Falls by Jaime McDougall is a paranormal romance with werewolves. I couldn't pass it up! Here is the product description:
Running from a nightmare stalking her every move, Phoebe Martin arrives in Echo Falls hoping she has finally found a safe place to stop. But trouble has a way of catching up and soon the signs are there.

After a vicious attack in an alley, policeman Aidan O'Bryan is left with Phoebe as his only path to understanding why the Echo Falls werewolf pack - his pack - is being attacked. When another pack member is killed, Phoebe is forced to confront her past before she loses Aidan and everything she has come to love.

Love and duty become one as Aidan strives to prevent Phoebe from becoming the next victim. But with Phoebe just as determined to protect Aidan and her new home, secrets from her past threaten to tear them apart.

Will love give Phoebe the strength to trust Aidan and face her fears, or will her past destroy her future?
