The 99C Only Stores Cookbook:

The 99C Only Stores Cookbook:Gourmet Recipes at Discount Prices By: Christiane Jory
Non-Fiction: Food/Cooking, 173 pages
Physical Book Count: 78
Book Count: 95

This is a cookbook using only things that the author found in The 99 Cents Only Store, discount stores.   Most all of the items in the book were things that one could find in another dollar store, or for about a dollar in a chain grocery store.  It does include the exact store brand name for things, but one could easily change out some other dollar store brands or national brands.  The book was inspired by wanting to make really cheap but good food for  get-togethers, and so it also has combinations that would make different types of parties, with info on what the cost would be for X number of people.

The Haunting of Quenby Mansion:

The Haunting of Quenby Mansion: A Haunted House Mystery - Book 1 By: J.S.Donovan
Fiction: Mystery, Paranormal, E-book
E-Book Count:18
Book Count: 92

Another of the monthly free e-books that I am glad that I didn't spend money on.  The story itself isn't that bad; girl who never knew her parents find out that she has inherited a mansion from her father.  Only it's filled with ghosts, there are murderers that know more about the house then her, and it looks like her father might have been a serial killer or worked with them.   However, even if a book is part of a series not only having a cliff hanger ending, but ending the  book with just as many questions as you started with, including not answering the main question of the book is just too much.
