Hello and happy Wednesday. I have develop a system for buying e-books, so if you’d like to save some money and get great reads, stick around because I have more posts like this one planned for the future. Today I’ll share with you eight books, I’ll tell you how much I got them for and whether they’re still being sold at a discounted price. Let’s get started, shall we?
Girl Up: Kick Ass, Claim Your Woman Card, and Crush Everyday Sexism by Laura Bates
If you didn’t know, hi, my name is Camila and I’m a feminist. When I say I’m a feminist I don’t mean I don’t just follow a bunch of “girl power” accounts on Instagram, although I do have a hoodie that says “girl crew.” I mean that I have read a lot on feminism and I know about it at a theoretical level, and I mean that I keep searching for books and articles that keep me informed on how to be a better feminist every day. The kindle edition of this book currently costs $11.99, but because of some miracle I was able to buy it for $0.99.
The Atomic City Girls by Janet Beard
I probably knew about this book from one of those reading lists I found on Pinterest when I was coming up with the ultimate reading challenge. I don’t want to read the synopsis though because you know I like to go into books as blindly as I can. It currently costs $10.99 on kindle, but I was able to get it for $1.99.
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
This is another book that really wasn’t in my plans, but that got added to the list because of the ultimate reading challenge I created a few weeks ago. I think this is a thriller of sorts, but I’m not sure, so it’s going to be an interesting read for me. I got this in kindle for $1.99, but sadly the price is back up to $9.99.
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
This one is a classic, so I obviously had to get it and read it at some point. And I don’t just plan to read it, but to actually do a novel study or something with it. I got it for $1.99 and to this day, that’s still the price. If you like classic reads like this one, you should check them on kindle because they are always very cheap or available on Kindle Unlimited.
Hundred Percent by Karen Romano Young
Young adult is nine times out of ten my genre of preference, but for a while I’ve also been leaning towards middle grade books, like Hundred Percent. The kindle version used to be $1.99 and now it is $4.77, which is still kind of cheap I guess.
Impossible Saints by Clarissa Harwood
This is another book I added because of the reading challenge. From what I read about it, which was very little obviously, this is a historical novel. You know that I struggle with those, but we’ll see. I selected these books for my challenge because they had been best sellers or super recommended by people, so I’ll give it a chance. Right now you can buy the kindle edition for $12.99, but I got it for $1.99.
Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty
This appears to be a super successful author I had never heard about before going into the reading challenge, and this is just one of the several novels I’m going to read from her. Can you guess the price of the kindle when I got it? Yes, it was $1.99 indeed, and now it is $7.99.
The Horse Dancer by Jojo Moyes
I love Jojo Moyes’ writing, but I’m done with the Me Before You Series. I was not that excited by After You and still I read it, but I definitely won’t read the next book that came out. If you are, let me know in the comments. Anyway, this book has nothing to do with that series, and that’s why I want to read it. I got it for $1.99, and it is now $11.99.
I have two more kindle hauls coming up, but I’m also planning on writing a post on the system I use to get really cheap books every month. I’m almost sure that I had already done something like this, but I think it’s always good to update and improve your system, especially if it means saving even more money.
Love, Miss Camila
