Book Haul January 2021 (Book Buys and ARCs)

This is actually a returning feature here at Okie Dreams, where I discuss and share all the books I bought and purchased throughout the month. For January 2021, there are a lot of books I bought (in print and in digital) or received in ARC form. Instead of talking about each individual book, I listed them and linked them all to their Amazon page. Unfortunately, there were way too many to discuss individually this time. But you can still see what I’ve been buying and reading this month, and also what is coming up in the next few months in terms of reviews and discussion posts. Because I have plans, ya’ll. Lots and lots of plans.

The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris

The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris (Crime Friday)

A serial murderer known only by a grotesquely apt nickname–Buffalo Bill–is stalking women. He has a purpose, but no one can fathom it, for the bodies are discovered in different states. Clarice Starling, a young trainee at the FBI Academy, is surprised to be summoned by Jack Crawford, chief of the Bureau’s Behavioral Science section. Her assignment: to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter–Hannibal the Cannibal–who is kept under close watch in the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. Dr. Lecter is a former psychiatrist with a grisly history, unusual tastes, and an intense curiosity about the darker corners of the mind.

The Rebel by Kendall Ryan

The Rebel by Kendall Ryan (COVER REVEAL)

Eden’s entire life changed in an instant. After enduring a messy breakup and the death of her grandfather, she’s the new owner of his business, a struggling hockey franchise. Bad things happen in threes, right?

Not one to back down from a challenge, she jumps in with both stilettos. There’s just one tempting and sinfully handsome problem . . . her new head of security, Holt Rossi.

Take Me Cowboy by Maisey Yates

Take Me Cowboy by Maisey Yates (Thursday Throwback)

Have you read Take Me, Cowboy by Maisey Yates? It came out years ago, but if you missed it, you’re in luck because it’s still available in e-book and it’s freshly available in print as a bonus read in the back of the author’s most recent Harlequin Desire release, The Rancher’s Wager. But be forewarned, this book has some steamy-hot, seriously well-done love scenes between two people who deserve much more than they let themselves believe they should have.
