New to the TBR Pile (44) - November 2015

Freebie from
The Gifting (Gifting #1)
by K. E. Ganshert

If science is right, then I am crazy. And crazy is dangerous.

Tess Eckhart has always felt things nobody else can feel. Then the Ouija board incident happens at a high school party. Her complete freak out sends her family across the country--next to a nationally-renowned facility for the mentally ill. Worried Tess suffers from the same illness that tormented her grandmother, her parents insist she see a psychiatrist.

Tess is more concerned about fitting in at her new school, and hiding the fact that she's seeing a therapist at the Edward Brooks Facility. She's used to whispers and stares, but when it comes to Luka Williams, a reluctantly popular boy in her class, she's unused to a stare that intense. Then the headaches start, and the seemingly prophetic dreams that haunt her at night. As Tess tries to hide them, she becomes increasingly convinced that Luka knows something--that he might somehow be responsible.

But what if she's wrong? What if Luka Williams is the only thing separating her from a madness too terrifying to fathom?

Mindspeak (Mindspeak #1)
by Heather Sunseri

She was created for a purpose so revolutionary, someone was willing to kill for it.

Seventeen-year-old Lexi Matthews keeps two secrets from her elite boarding school classmates—she’s the daughter of a famous and controversial geneticist, and she can influence people’s thoughts.

But after new student Jack DeWeese heals her broken arm with an anything-but-simple touch, he forces Lexi to face a new reality—her abilities reach much further than speaking to the minds of others.

After Lexi’s father goes missing and she receives threatening emails, she can’t decide whether to fall into Jack’s arms or run and hide.

As Lexi seeks answers to what she and Jack are, she discovers a truth more unsettling than anything her science books can teach. And letting Jack into her life of secrets is not only a threat to her very existence, but it just might break her heart wide open.

A Monstrous Place (Tales From Between)
by Matthew Stott

Things live between awake and asleep. In the moment after your eyes grow too heavy to stay open, but before the dreams take you...

Molly lives with her Mother in a large, creaking house that she wishes were haunted. There may be no ghosts, but what about monsters? Monsters with an unending appetite that like to steal people away in the black of night.

When, one morning, Molly wakes to find her own Mother missing, she discovers she has a potentially fatal task ahead of her. With only her dead Gran and a retired adventurer by her side, Molly must travel to a dangerous and untrustworthy land somewhere between awake and asleep, before her Mother finds herself planted in a most monstrous garden.

What's new to your TBR pile this month?
Did you get any books you're really looking forward to reading?
Let me know in the comments!


  1. These seem interesting! Thank you for sharing :) Happy reading♥

    Jumana @ Books by Jay

  2. I've seen The Gifting and Mindspeak free for Kindle. I'm interested in what you'll think of them. No clue if I got them or not haha! I so need to clean out my Kindle. The Monster story sounds too whimsical for me. I do like the character's name though. ;)

    Red Queen, Rose Society, and Court of Thorns and Roses are at the top of my to read list. I'm such a mood reader though, so no clue if I'll actually read them next.

    1. I don't have an actual Kindle, but the Kindle app on my computer is getting... full. It's hard to remember what I have on there!

  3. I hadn't even HEARD of any of these. *gasps* But they sound epic and I'm particularly loving the look of A Monstrous Place. XD I just added Carry On by Rainbow Rowell to my TBR which is one I'm kinda scared of? but also insanely curious. XD So we'll see how it goes!

    1. I hadn't heard of any of them, either. I think these freebies are usually self-published. But some of them looked interesting, so I thought I'd give them a chance!
