Fresh Batch (Jan 27th – Feb 2nd)

Posted by

Exclusively titled for Xpresso Reads, Fresh Batch features the hottest releases of this upcoming week.

Flavor of the week:

Sins & Needles

Karina Halle
Series: The Artists Trilogy, #1
Publication date: January 28th 2013
by Metal Blonde Books

Ellie Watt is used to starting over. The daughter of a grifting team, Ellie spent her childhood being used as a pawn in her parents’ latest scam. Now she’s much older, wiser and ready to give her con artist life a rest. But returning to the dry desert town of Palm Valley, California means one more temptation than she bargained for – Camden McQueen. Once known as the high school weirdo, Camden is bigger and badder than the boy he used to be and a talented tattoo artist with his own thriving business. Ellie’s counting on Camden still being in love with her but what she’s not counting on is how easily unrequited love can turn into obsession over time. When Camden discovers Ellie’s plan to con him, he makes her a deal she doesn’t dare refuse, but her freedom comes with a price and it’s one that takes both Ellie and Camden down a dangerous road.

The daughter of a Norwegian Viking and a Finnish Moomin, Karina Halle grew up in Vancouver, Canada with trolls and eternal darkness on the brain. This soon turned into a love of all things that go bump in the night and a rather sadistic appreciation for freaking people out. Like many of the flawed characters she writes, Karina never knew where to find herself and has dabbled in acting, make-up artistry, film production, screenwriting, photography, travel writing and music journalism. She eventually found herself in the pages of the very novels she wrote (if only she had looked there to begin with).

Karina holds a screenwriting degree from Vancouver Film School and a Bachelor of Journalism from TRU. Her travel writing, music reviews/interviews and photography have appeared in publications such as Consequence of Sound, Mxdwn and GoNomad Travel Guides. She currently lives on an island on the coast of British Columbia where she’s preparing for the zombie apocalypse.

    Wow! I cannot wait for so many of these titles! I’m excited for Breaking Point, Prodigy, Sins and Needles and Shadows in the Silence. Good thing I’m getting my pay slip this week! 🙂

    I planned to buy The Madman’s Daughter,The Prey and Til The World Ends but seems like I need to amend my list to include several others as well. Love this feature because it helps remind me which books I need to buy which is something I am admittedly bad at remembering unless right in front of me.

    Sins and Needles is the only one I really want on here (I haven’t started a bunch of the series books yet), I’ve read so many good reviews about it! Is it only on eBook so far, or will there eventually be a hardcopy version? I don’t have a Kindle (yet).

Seeing all of the books on here that are like 2nd books in a series I haven’t even started yet made me feel lame o.O I’m SO overdue to get into the Prodigy Series, The Newsoul Series and the Article 5 Series!
