Steal Alert: 13 Awesome YA Titles Under $4

Amazon.com is kicking off another huge Kindle book sale called The Big Deal, with tons and tons of Kindle books $3.99 or less. I went through all the YA titles on sale, and picked out 13 I thought you might be interested in (and somehow managed to only buy one myself):

Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

Melina Marchetta is the author of Jellicoe Road, which blew my mind with its awesome-ness. I'm excited to read her fantasy novel!

Faerie Wars by Herbie Brennan

Okay, despite the rather lame title, I really did enjoy this one and its sequels. It's a very imaginative and funny book with a great male protagonist.

Hearts at Stake by Alyxandra Harvey

If you're looking for a supernatural read, check out this vampire series!

Another Faust by Daniel and Dina Nayeri

Written by a brother and sister, this is a retelling of Faust, with some very peculiar teens at the center of the story.

Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King

This was an awesome, unique book about pirates, reincarnation, destiny, and the lives of dogs. I definitely recommend it. Click here to read my review.

Angel Burn by L.A. Weatherly

This book about some very different sorts of angels was buzzed about at Book Blogger Con. And if you're not sure about purchasing it, you can get a free digital chapter sampler.

The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

An oldie, but a goodie. I love the Princess Diaries series so much...if you haven't started them, DO SO NOW!

Lament by Maggie Stiefvater

So, you've just finished Forever and you're moaning about how The Scorpio races isn't coming out yet...well, pick up Maggie's first, much over-looked book. I liked it a lot. Read my review here.

Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles

Similarly, if you're waiting on Chain Reaction, here's something else by Simone Elkeles to keep you occupied.

The Healer's Apprentice by Melanie Dickerson

This looks like an interesting fantasy book--I have a print copy of it that I am going to read soon!

13 to Life by Shannon Delaney

Here's another supernatural book that seems to be popular among YA bloggers!

Breathless by Jessica Warman

I haven't read this one yet, but it looks good, and Warman's other book, Between, was getting loads of hype at BEA!

Happy reading!

Thanks so much for recommending some YA titles! I read your reviews of Dust of 100 Dogs and Lament and ended up purchasing Finnikin of the Rock and Angel Burn as well as Coffee at Luke's: An Unauthorized Gilmore Girls Gabfest (Smart Pop series) and If You Loved Me You'd Think This Was Cute: Uncomfortably True Cartoons About You. :)
