Kindle Deals (47)

I always see blogs that have a page that show deals for the kindle, and I occasionally find one or two books on there that I would want. I'm more of a YA girl, and seeing as how most my followers are (I'm assuming here) I decided to make a list of the YA books I found that are $3.99 and less for the kindle. There are plenty more Ya books that are on amazon, but these caught my attention because either I have them, I've read them, or I'm dying to read them. :) Just click on the title and it takes you to their amazon page in a new window.
I'm not sure how long these deals will be here so get them while they're available.

Readathon: Bout of Books 21: 2018 Reading goals

Share Your 2018 Reading Goal(s)
Got a reading goal or two or ten for the new year? Share with us! Comment below, tweet it out, collage it on Instagram, film it on YouTube, or post it on your blog. Remember to use the hashtag #boutofbooks #2018goals if your platform of choice uses hashtags.

I have some reading goals, but I rarely stick with them so we shall see how it goes.
  • Finish a few series ( I have sooooo many series I've started that I haven't finished and  I really want to.)
  • read at least 60 books (I've never been able to get past 65 books a year. I know I could do it if I tried, but sometimes the motivation is just not there.)
  • step out of my comfort zone when it comes to reading (I typically stick with reading my YA books, but I know if I can find the right books I would enjoy other genres.) Anyone have any suggestions? (I've enjoyed the fifty shades books by El James, You by Caroline Kepnes)
  • Do an actual book unhaul (I have a hard time getting rid of books even ones I'm not going to read, but I have started a small stack which I plan on taking to HPB sometime.)
  • Keep up with my book blog and write my reviews. ( I kind of let my blog and reviewing on it slip at the end of the year, and it bothers me because I love this site and I plan to rectify that this year.)
