Savannah (Books With Bite) Your welcome! I'm trying to put together a list of awesome books. As I read more, I will add them to the list.


message 2: by Mary (new)

Mary Jackson very very excited an happy to see that Jennifer Snyder is on this list.I have all of her books an can't wait to purchase this one "THE UNLOVED".She is such an awesome writer. Seriously check out some of her books


Savannah (Books With Bite) YAY! I am excited to read her books!

Hi - "The Opportunist" by Tarryn Fisher should be on this list too. She is an incredible author


Savannah (Books With Bite) Thanks! I read that book and forgot to add it.


Savannah (Books With Bite) Please only vote for Indie YA/NEW ADULT BOOKS ONLY! If you add books that are published by a pub, I will delete it. Thank You!


message 7: by Mary (last edited Jul 30, 2012 05:39AM) (new)

Mary Jackson Jennifer Snyders book "The Unloved" has been released today. I am downloading it now. Can't wait to read it

Thanks for letting us know this tidbit =)


message 9: by Mary (new)

Mary Jackson you are very welcome


Savannah (Books With Bite) Alright, here are the rules:
1. DO NOT ADD BOOKS PUBLISHED BY A PUBLISHER TO THE LIST. IT'S INDIE ONLY!

2. TO CLARIFY ABOUT WHAT KIND OF INDIE: YA OR NEW ADUKLT ONLY! DO NOT ADD EROTICA, BDSM CRAP ON HERE!

3. IF YOU DO ANY OF THE FIRST TWO, I WILL DELETE THEM.

Next, ya'll got to stop adding books. LOL! Every time I think I am going to catch up, there are more added. I can only read so fast, and believe me, I do read fast! But still, thanks to all who added some great books that I never heard of. I'm going on a Amazon shopping spree!


Savannah (Books With Bite) Also, I went ahead and removed books that were once indie but are now published by big publishers. I like to support the indie authors much as possible. And since the authors got pick up (YAY!) they are no longer indie.


message 12: by Karina (new)

Karina Halle The Experiment in Terror Series is self-published. They had 25 votes and are now removed...?


Savannah (Books With Bite) I went through and removed what wasn't YA/New Adult. Is this series YA or New Adult? Let me check it out...


message 14: by Karina (new)

Karina Halle They are YA/New Adult. Character is 22 and fresh out of college :)


Savannah (Books With Bite) Alright, I'll add them.


Savannah (Books With Bite) I believe you have to be the one that created it. Since I created the list, I can edit the books. I had to remove some since others were putting erotica and published book on here.


Savannah (Books With Bite) Karina, books have been added :)


Savannah (Books With Bite) Skyla, your welcome!


message 19: by Karina (new)

Karina Halle Awesome :)


message 20: by Sharlaine (new)

Sharlaine Wow this is a great list. Can't wait to read the books listed in here. Thanks for this.


message 21: by Mary (new)

Mary Jackson Just wanted to let you know I got to read "UNLOVED"by Jennifer Snyder last night. This is a very extreme book. It is very well written an soooooo worth the money.Thank you for having it on your list an thank you for creating your list


Savannah (Books With Bite) Mary, glad you enjoy the book. I can't wait to read it myself. :)


message 23: by Mary (new)

Mary Jackson may I ask permission for any of her other books to be put up on your site?


message 24: by Paige (new)

Paige Whoops! Trying to use my phone and my fingers are too big! Accidentally added The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. Great book, but not self-published. Couldn't figure out how to take it off the list...? Maybe it is just cause I am using my phone that I can't see it...

Sorry! :)


Savannah (Books With Bite) Not a problem, I'll removed them.

And anyone can add books as long as they are

(1) Indie

(2) YA or New Adult


Savannah (Books With Bite) Ok, it's a good thing I'm getting paid this week. I have some series Amazon shopping to do!! LOL. A big thanks to everyone who's added some amazing books on here. I can't wait to read them :)


Savannah (Books With Bite) *serious*


message 28: by Andrea (last edited Aug 27, 2012 10:23AM) (new)

Andrea This is a great list!
I'm removing a few books that were bought by big publishers (Slammed/Point of Retreat, On the Island, Beautiful Disaster, Thoughtless/Effortless, The Vincent Boys/Brothers).


Savannah (Books With Bite) Thanks Andrea. I did that once already, but people keep adding them.


message 30: by Liz (new)

Liz Please add, "Shark Bait" by Jenn Cooksey


message 31: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Savannah (Books With Bite) wrote: "Thanks Andrea. I did that once already, but people keep adding them."

I was wondering... you mentioned that the books shouldn't be published by a publisher, but the term "Indie" sometimes includes small presses... Is this list strictly self-published only?


Savannah (Books With Bite) Andrea, your right. I hadn't thought about that. Sure, let's add small press as well. :)


Savannah (Books With Bite) So I bought 3 indie books last week:

The Boy Who Sneaks In My Bedroom Window
Eternal Eden
Callum & Harper

I'm slowly making my way through this list of books. I plan to read all of them on this list. (If that is even possible! LOL)

Just add to many at one time. LOL

Anyone bought any books from the list and like it?

Let me know :)


Savannah (Books With Bite) Eden,

Cool! I saw someone added that one. I may buy it today :)


message 35: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Savannah (Books With Bite) wrote: "Andrea, your right. I hadn't thought about that. Sure, let's add small press as well. :)"

OK, agreed. I guess now looking at the list that there are a few more books that should be removed?

Tammara Webber's books have a publishing deal in the UK/Commonwealth, but remain self-pub in the US. (should these go or not?)

the Amazon Children's imprint has picked up Angelfall and Flat-Out Love

there's also a book on the list with Entangled (that's not a "small" press anymore, right?)


message 36: by katara (new)

katara Some of the books on here are really awesome and I can't wait till more are added!


Savannah (Books With Bite) Andrea,

Yeah, I've been thinking about that and thinking maybe I should remove them since there are pick up. Amazon and Entangled are big publishing houses, at least to me.


Savannah (Books With Bite) Authors who are on this list:

I have been getting review request to review your book. Please know that it may take time before I can get to your email/book and will let you know if I decide to accept it.

Thanks for understanding :)


Savannah (Books With Bite) Also, my list I started is getting popular pretty fast. I didn't think it would get so big. Thanks to all who show your support for awesome Indie Authors :)

Yes, I think now that they have been picked up they should go... I'll remove those then.
I'm still on the fence about the Tammara Webber books (selfpub except in the UK), what do you think?


Savannah (Books With Bite) Andrea wrote: "Savannah (Books With Bite) wrote: "Andrea,

Keep it, until it gets picks up. Which I have not doubt will be soon.

Thanks Andrea for helping me keep this list up to date :)

I think it's happened already... (yet to be announced but look : http://us.penguingroup.com/nf/Book/Bo... )

That's awesome for her!! How exciting :) I guess we can remove it then.


message 44: by Savannah (Books With Bite) (last edited Oct 04, 2012 07:59AM) (new)

Savannah (Books With Bite) Alright, so I got Eternal Eden for free last night on Amazon and I'm not even half way done and bought the next two books in the series this morning. LOL :)

Has anyone else read this series?


message 45: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Savannah (Books With Bite) wrote: "Has anyone else read this series?"

Nope, but the author's books Crash and Clash were just picked up by HarperCollins, so off the list they go :) (it's fun to see that most books on top of the list keep getting picked up by BPH!)


Savannah (Books With Bite) Andrea, it is! I'm so happy that it got pick up :)


message 47: by J.J. (new)

J.J. Gonzalez Check this one out, maybe you'll like it for the list. It's a self-published YA paranormal novel.
