This is one of those posts where I'm going to be the obnoxiously happy Kindle-owner. Fair warning.
But...Amazon is having a massive sale on e-books, called Sunshine Deals! At first, I just sort of clicked through a couple of the deals, but I wasn't very impressed...until I hit the YA jackpot! All of these books are $2.99 and under, and there are loads of old favorites and new releases. I went into a downloading frenzy. Here are some are of highlights I found:
Shine by Lauren Myracle is only $2.99! And a new-ish release! Hooray! I downloaded this one for my imminent 10 hour plan ride.
The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler is $1.99! Carolyn is one of those YA authors I grew up seeing on shelves at my local library, and this one may be a few years old, but it's such a good one--and it was a Printz Honor book!
Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles is $1.99 and its sequel Rules of Attraction is $2.99! These are some of my favorite sexy reads--Simone Elkeles can write one hot romance! And this is PERFECT because the third book, Chain Reaction, comes out in August, so you can pick these up and read them in time!
Need and Entice by Carrie Jones are just $1.99 each! Very good books! You can read my review here.
The Agency: A Spy in the House by Y.S. Lee is $1.99. I just bought this one at the Strand, for like, 3 times that much. Oh well!
If you want a fantasy read, The Naming by Alison Croggon is $1.99! I read that one a long time ago, and I remember it as being very good!
Boys, Bears, and a Serious Pair of Hiking Boots by Abby McDonald is $1.99--this is another one I bought recently in hardcover! I'm kicking myself for not waiting!
If you're curious about all the hype surrounding Ally Carter's books, try her first one, I'd Tell You I'd Love You But Then I'd Have to Kill You for only $2.99!
Happy downloading and happy reading! I hope this lis have given you a jumpstart on your summer reading (without hurting your wallet too much)!
