Today's blog post is a doozy. Book recommendations (free, paid, and Kindle Unlimited): check. Advice on how to find free, discounted, and new (or new-to-you) books: check. Free books from yours truly: check.
You can find 70+ books that have been recommended to me (with a few recommendations from myself) at Recommendations from The Troupe: the whole kit and kaboodle!. Many of these are in Kindle Unlimited and a few are free.
Young adult magic academy books, YA paranormal romance, YA urban fantasy are included, along with the adult versions of each of those genres. We've also got paranormal cozy mysteries, vampire books, fantasy books, and even a few science fiction and dystopian books. The last quarter or so are all "wild card books", i.e. books that don't necessarily fall super close to my own genres, but you may still find interesting. Contemporary romance, historical romance, thrillers, non-paranormal cozy mysteries, and women's literature are a few examples of those.
Looking for free books? No problem, I've got you covered. Check out my Free book smorgasbord! blog post for 30+ free books to check out.
Genres aren't as far-ranging as with The Troupe Recommendation post. Again, we've got young adult paranormal romance and YA urban fantasy, along with the adult versions of both. We've also got a fairy tale retelling in there along with a mythology YA fantasy. There's a bit of science fiction, paranormal cozy mystery, and paranormal thriller too. To wrap things up, we've got a couple of holiday-themed books.

Fire brings death. Fire breathes life.
Vampire Duncan lives in a world where it's kill or be killed, whether that's by his vampire allies or by vampire hunters. But he wants something more. He wants freedom.
When he stumbles across a rogue fire witch whom his enemies have left to die, it's his chance. If he can persuade her to switch sides, together they can unite the vampires and destroy the hunters. There's just one catch: can Duncan convince the witch to join him before she kills him?
The Unleashed Creation is the first book in The Vampires of Eversfield Academy YA paranormal fantasy series. If you like sinister villains, a generous dose of vampires and magic, and supernatural suspense, then you'll love Betsy Flak's page-turner.
Free for a limited time on Amazon, Apple Books, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo.
