Whenever I find either a legal free download, an excerpt or sneak peek of a book online, I try to link to it in a related post or include the link in my sidebar (to your right).
But once a month I’ll pop them into a post for a “one-stop shop” with a brief description. In an attempt to clear out my sidebar this month I’m adding a few of the oldies here to give you one last chance to grab them.
We have a few peeks at upcoming releases, just released books and some of them are just items that have been offered for free for awhile but you might have missed. Who doesn’t enjoy a nice sneak peek or freebie now and again?
And yes, I know it’s not March yet and I only have one excerpt from a March release (many of the March release excerpts are in the sidebar), but it’s a monthly post and when I did February’s I missed a whole bunch of February freebies, so here it is a week earlier than planned.
Karsten Knight’s upcoming debut novel Wildefire will be releasing on July 26, 2011. Simon & Schuster has an excerpt from this amazing book on their site.
First lines: Ashline Wilde was a human mood ring. Sixteen years old, and she was a cauldron of emotions—frothing, bubbling, and volatile. She had never heard of “bottling it all up inside.” She was as transparent as the air itself.
Desires of the Dead is the second book in the Body Finder series. It was released this week on February 15th. If you haven’t started the series or you want to see if it’s worth a read, check out this nice, long excerpt from the folks at Harper Collins.
I have not yet read it, as I have both books in my TBR pile, but I will be starting them soon, but this peek is 70 pages and is way more than a teaser.
Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter is the first book in her new young adult series due out on March 29, 2011. Macmillan has a short excerpt on their site if you want to learn more about what is going on in Shadow Falls.
This is an amazing book in what is already a highly addictive series. And yes, I am totally Team Lucas.
If you haven’t yet started, this short peek from Macmillan will either tide you over or tease you so much that you’ll just have to start reading. The excerpt includes the prologue and part of the first chapter.
Teaser line: A muzzle flash tears at the inky night again and she tumbles to the earth, falling limp.
Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel was released in August 2010. If you haven’t yet heard of or read this book, check out the short excerpt that the folks at Macmillan (St. Martin’s Griffin) have available.
I have wanted to read this book forever but have been waiting until it’s an eBook and just discovered this very moment that it now is, FINALLY. Having just read this excerpt I think I’m going to have to readjust my TBR pile to move this very close to the top.
Lines to die for:
“Throughout all my histories, I found no one I loved more than you…no one.”
Those were some of Rhode’s last words to me. The last time he would pronounce his love. The last time I would see his face.
The Vampire Diaries: The Return: Nightfall is available to read online free in its entirety from HarperTeen. It was released in March 2010 and is the first of the Return books. The Return: Midnight will be out this March.
Reaper is a novella in the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent. If you haven’t downloaded it by now, I’d be very surprised, but just in case, as I’m taking it off the sidebar, here it is for free download from HarlequinTEEN.
You can still download it free at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
The Iron Witch is the debut novel and the first in a wonderful new series by author Karen Mahoney. If you haven’t yet had a chance to check it out, now’s the time, as Flux has a great excerpt.
