Kindle Klean-Up Challenge (8) #kindlebookaddiction #KindleKleanUp

The purpose of this challenge is to help clear out some (or many) of those books taking up space on our e-readers. You know them, the books you added because they were free, really cheap, quite pretty or just seemed a bit interesting. Now you’ve got to decide if you’re really gonna keep and read them or is it time to toss?!

Would you like to join in on this challenge? Here are some suggested guidelines:

  • Make a list of the books on your kindle/ e-reader under consideration.
  • Select the first 3 or 4 (or more depending on your mood).
  • Read the blurbs of the books.
  • Decide if you’re going to keep and read; or discard from the TBR.
  • Announce your verdict. 
  • The next time you’re ready to post, continue from where you left off on your list. 

If you’d like to create a little community spirit to build up encouragement to really get this list sorted, join in!

  • Write a post saying you’re taking part in this challenge/ meme.
  • Tag me in your post so I can include you in my challenge update posts.
  • If on Twitter, use the hashtags #kindlebookaddiction #KindleKleanUp and tag me @ninad_silva so I can find you and your post to retweet.
  • Post as often or as infrequently as you wish!
  • I’ll try to do update posts every first and third week of the month and include links to anyone who’s joined in.
  • You can use these challenge images, if you want to.

Love Letters from Mr. Darcy: A Pride and Prejudice Novella

How much power is in the written word? Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy is determined to find out.

Crushed beyond measure at the rejection of his proposal, Darcy struggles to explain both the facts and his feelings by letter to the only woman he will ever love. Can such a reticent man find the words to enable Elizabeth Bennet to know the man behind the mask? Will she read his carefully crafted epistle once he delivers it into her hand? Will he catch even a small glimmer of hope?

Affection and respect. Two magical words Miss Elizabeth never expected to hear from the last man in the world she would ever marry, yet they undeniably appear before her eyes in black and white. Devotion and adoration. Humph! 

Follow literature’s most beloved couple during the weeks following the disastrous proposal as a series of heartfelt missives has created such havoc in Elizabeth’s heart that she is finally moved to write him back. Will hers be a letter of love as well?

In this sweet 268-page variation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, we will see love bloom and grow. This is a Regency historical romance from bestselling author, J Dawn King.

My verdict: I’m not too sure about this. It looks a bit cheesy… but I’ve been meaning to try another Darcy and Elizabeth re-telling for a while. I think I’ll keep, read the first few chapters and then decide.


Another Breath, Another Sunrise: A Holocaust Novel (Michal’s Destiny Book 4)

Now that the Reich has fallen, in this—the final book of the Michal’s Destiny series—the reader follows the survivors as they find themselves searching to reconnect with those they love. However, they are no longer the people they were before the war.  
While the Russian soldiers, who are angry with the German people and ready to pillage, beat, and rape, begin to invade what’s left of Berlin, Lotti is alone and fears for her life. 
Though Alina Margolis has broken every tradition to become a successful business woman in America, she fears what has happened to her family and loved ones across the Atlantic Ocean.
As the curtain pulls back on Gilde, a now successful actress in London, she realizes that all that glitters is not gold, and she longs to find the lost family the Nazi’s had stolen from her many years ago.
This is a story of ordinary people whose lives were shattered by the terrifying ambitions of Adolf Hitler—a true madman. 

My verdict: This looks very interesting, even if quite depressing. I’ve read a lot of WWII historical fiction and wouldn’t mind this one, but it’s number 4 in a series. I won’t be reading the three prior so I think I’ll ditch this one.


Dark Desires (Dark Gothic Book 1)

Betrayed by those she trusted, penniless and alone, Darcie Finch is forced to accept a position that no one else dares, as assistant to dangerously attractive Dr. Damien Cole. Ignoring the whispered warnings and rumours that he’s a man to fear, she takes her position at his eerie estate where she quickly discovers that nothing is at it seems, least of all her handsome and brooding employer. As Darcie struggles with her fierce attraction to Damien, she must also deal with the blood, the disappearances … and the murders.

With her options dwindling and time running out, Darcie must rely on her instincts as she confronts the man she is falling in love with. Is he an innocent and misunderstood man … or a remorseless killer who prowls the East End streets?

Read all Eve’s Historical Romantic Suspense with a Gothic Twist! Each book is a stand-alone and the series can be read in any order.

My verdict: Another one I’m in two minds about. The premise looks interesting and I recently read a Gothic historical mystery and enjoyed. I think I’ll give this a try. Keep. 


Armed and Fabulous (Lexi Graves Mysteries Book 1)

All Lexi wants to do is get through the day at her boring temp job with Green Hand Insurance. That’s until she discovers the vice president, Martin Dean, in a pool of blood and herself at the center of an investigation into insurance fraud.

Millions of dollars are missing, the chief suspect is dead and her mysterious, sexy, new boss is not what he seems.

Recruited by the joint task force working on the case, all Lexi has to do is work out who killed Dean and where the missing millions are. That’s easier said than done when her sister insists upon the baby shower to end all baby showers, her wise-ass cop family just wants to keep her safe, someone keeps leaving her creepy gifts, and all the clues point to a seedy sex club on the wrong side of town.

As the bodies start to pile up, Lexi is on a race against time to find the killer and the money, before she’s the next one in the murderer’s sights.

My verdict: This looks like a fun read. It’s also similar to lots of other cozy mystery series I’m already following. Although I have this first book in the series already, the rest of the series isn’t on Kindle Unlimited. I think I’ll pass on it.


Well, this week was a lot more successful that the two posts prior. I’ve definitively ditched two, I’m tentatively keeping one and more certainly keeping one. Not too bad this time!

Have a lovely weekend!
