Hollowland by Amanda Hocking

WOW!! I just finished reading this book and had to share! Its the best $0.99cents I have ever spent on a book!
This was one of those books, I was not going to read and though well I do love to be challenged into reading something I normally wouldnt and wow was I blown away! A book about Zombies had me captured from the very first page! Amanda Hocking has such a way with sucking you in! I finished this book in 2 days! I highly reccommend this book to everyone, and if you would like to join in a discussion about this book you still have a few weeks to read it as Its our April Book that Amy chose for us to  read/discussing over at The Chic Lits Book Club blog. You can get your e-copy here from Amazon for $0.99!!! so worth it!. I will defintely be reading more books from Amanda Hocking. I wont say too much more about the book, as I have a bad habbit of talking about books and giving away the ending LOL. So just trust me and go read it.
Hope everyone is having a great relaxing weekend.

Belle by Lesley Pearse

Hiya! I just really wanted to share with you a book I recently downloaded on my Kindle &  finished reading called "Belle" by Lesley Pearse! This was one of those books you start reading and can not put down!!. I especially love a book that has such a strong female character like Belle, she is such a fighter. It was my first book I have read of Lesley's and cant wait to read more of her books. Here is the Book description from Amazon.
 "London 1910 Fifteen year-old Belle has lived in a brothel in Seven Dials all her life, with no understanding of what happens in the rooms upstairs. But her innocence is shattered when she witnesses the murder of one of the girls and, subsequently snatched from the streets by the killer, she is sold into prostitution in Paris. No longer mistress of her own fate, Belle is blown across the globe to sensuous New Orleans where she comes of age and learns to enjoy life as a courtesan. Yet thoughts of home  and the knowledge her status as golden girl cannot last compel her to break out of her gilded cage.But Belle finds escaping tougher than she imagined, for her life is threatened by desperate men who crave her beauty and attention. Armed only with resourcefulness and spirit, she has a long and dangerous journey ahead of her.Will courage be enough to sustain her? Can she make it back to her family and friends and find her chance at true happiness?Number One bestseller Lesley Pearse has created in Belle a heroine for our times: a strong woman who stands up for right in a world turned bad."
Amazon Hard Cover: $27.93
Amazon Kindle: $14.01

I highly reccomend this book and give it ***** 5 stars out of 5!!
I am currently reading Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian for my bookclub Im a member of, why dont you head over to The chic-lits bookclub blog and join us for our discussions! Each month we read and review a new book! You can check out the list of books we have upcoming on our Chic-lit blog.
