Top 5 Favorite Self Published Novels

I know self pubs get a bad wrap. But not all are created equal. Some leave me utterly confused as to why they aren't traditionally published? Who is their right mind said NO?! Then I realized that maybe some people want to self pub their books. Nothing wrong with that. I've found some amazing self pubs lately and I can't wait to read more great books. If you've not had the pleasure of reading a self published book, let me suggest a few. Now, these aren't just any self pubs. I'd rank these as high as Anna and the French Kiss and Catching Jordan. I hope you love them as much as I do!

  1. My first encounter with self pub was The Curse Girl by Kate Avery Ellison and I thought it was amazing! Only problem: it was really short (under 200 pages). I couldn't imaging this wasn't published the traditional way. But I must say unfortunately there are also a lot of bad self pub books. So I'm a bit hesitant about them, but I'm checking out your Top 5!

  2. Awesome. I can't wait to read Leigh's book.

  3. I don't think I've ever read a self-published book but I've heard a lot about these, I have to check them out :)

  4. Oh! This makes me so happy. I'm just honored. And what a great bunch of writers to be featured with! I've also read 10 Weeks and loved it as well. Can't wait to read the others!

    Thank you so, so much, Mary! I love that you love my book. :o) <3

  5. The thing about self-published books; most of the time, I don't like the covers.. and those are - even if I don't want to - important for me.


  6. I used to not be a fan of selfpublished book, but I'm quickly changing my mind. So much great stuff out there!

  7. I've read several self published books some are brilliant and some are not but I find the same with the traditionally published books. I don't mind how a book is published, if I like it I like it and if I don't I don't.

    Nice post :)

  8. I liked What a Boy Wants too! :)
    My current favorites are Slammed by Colleen Hoover (okay, this is ex-self-published) and Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay.

  9. I might pick up one of these, except for 10 Weeks. I couldn't stand reading "Kay-Kay" over and over...sorry :) But I'm glad you opened up my eyes to self-pub books!
