Another addition to my Hoffman collection. It was on sale.
Another addition to my Octavia Butler collection. This is a book of short stories. It was on sale.
I love the cover and it was free.
This is all five stories, over 500 pages, in a bind-up. PLUS it is a KINDLE IN MOTION ebook, with moving illustrations. GOODREADS. I bought it because it was on sale.

If you want to try it out on the cheap there are some classic titles like The Secret Garden for $1.99. Click the link above for the Amazon list page.
This was free for Black History Month.
It was on sale.
It was an ebook special price bundle of titles 1 & 2.
I finished The Bone Witch and I loved it, and I was talking to Danielle from BOOKS, VERTIGO AND TEA about wanting to read this book and she told me it was on sale for 99¢. I scooped it up ASAP! But alas, it is no longer on sale.
This is a Middle Grade and it sounds whimsical. It's still only 99¢ at the time of this posting.
It was so close to pub date for this one (March 7th) that I thought I wasn't getting approved for it. I am reading it right now.
It publishes June 13th.
I saw this book on JO'S BOOK BLOG, when she reviewed it: HERE. I love dogs and I love stories set in NYC, so I ran to Netgalley to see if it was still available and it was! It was a Read Now, also, so instant score. Ha ha. It publishes March 7th.
This was one of those Netgalley non-ARCs they put up as Read Nows to get some new review action. I think maybe because Patti Smith's books are popular right now, but Patti is a poet and a writer; Blondie is not. I still thought it would be an interesting read because I was acquainted with some friends of hers and hung out a few times.
I did not read Gray's Firebird series because I saw too many conflicting reviews and had too many ARCs to read when the first book released. I read the synopsis for this one and liked it, so I decided to request and was delighted it came through. If I like this one enough I might give the first Firebird book a try. It publishes in early April. I also managed to get on the blog tour.
If you can use a US Amazon gift card to purchase books this giveaway is international.
