Indie Books Read: May

Here at Phantom Owl we support indie authors. We've asked book bloggers to share their indie book reviews with us, and at the beginning of every month, we're going to share with all of you the wonderful books they've suggested. We hope to not only bring attention to indie books, but also to promote the bloggers that are taking the time to read and review them.

The list includes books of all genres.

Books are arranged by rating.

Ravensdale by Lucinda Elliot
April Books Rating - 5 Stars
Goodreads Rating - 4.62 Stars

"Overall this was a fun read, and I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical romance, or who are looking for a break from the YA genre" - April Books

Six Moon Summer by SM Reine
Bookwryming Thoughts Review - 3.5 Stars
Goodreads Rating - 3.83 Stars

"Six Moon Summer was an interesting story, yet a not so interesting story. The story mainly focuses on Rylie's transformation from a human to a werewolf at a summer camp, with the prologue giving a flash forward." - Bookwryming Thoughts

22 Leadership Fundamentals: the Door to Success Says Push! by Alison Vidotto
The Good, the Bad, and the Bizarre Rating - Good
Goodreads Rating - 4.83 Stars

"We found this to be a very good introduction into the world of self-help and leadership books." - The Good, the Bad, and the Bizarre

A Letter From Hell by William Presley
The Good, the Bad, and the Bizarre Rating - Bizarre
Goodreads Rating - 4 Stars

"All in all, this is a good way to spend an afternoon when, like us, you occasionally hunger for a thrill and a scary page-turner. Horror fans will not be disappointed." - The Good, the Bad, and the Bizarre

Beyond the Rails by Jack Tyler
The Good, the Bad, and the Bizarre Rating - Good
Goodreads Rating - 3.88 Stars

"This book single-handedly convinced us to reconsider our dislike of Steampunk." - The Good, the Bad, and the Bizarre

The Pericles Conspiracy by Michael Kingswood
The Good, the Bad, and the Bizarre Rating - Good
Goodreads Rating - 3.71 Stars

"There’s enough in here that you could read it a couple times over and discover new things every time. Like all books it has its flaws, but it does a great job of presenting its strengths first." - The Good, the Bad, and the Bizarre

See what books were suggested by bloggers in April.

If you are a blogger who would like to contribute to the "Indie Books Read: June" post, you can do so HERE. Reviews submitted must be for books read in June of 2014, must be self-published or  published by an independent or small press (like Phantom Owl), and must be added by the reviewer not the author. You can add a review for a book that we've already featured, but cannot submit the same review twice.

How can we improve this post? Let us know, leave a comment.

  1. I'm sorry, folks, I just discovered this. I'm the author of Beyond the Rails, and I'd just like to take a moment to thank you for this priceless publicity on behalf of all my fellow indies. It's a huge sea of books out there, and it's wonderful to see you doing this. Thanks a million!
