Done! For the record, the last 15% was AWESOME!!! Book 1 got 4 stars from me as an intriguing start; book 2 has now made this one of my favorite series!!! 💖
This just earned 5 stars from me, and I'm not even finished. 85% done, according to my e-reader. The whole rest of this book could tank, and I would not care. 5 stars.
(No spoilers, and it's not what u think!)
To be fair, I've been leaning toward 5 the whole time. Solid story, solid character development. But still, it's a lock now and I'm not even done. 💖

Our countdown celebration starts today! Hunt for codes on the blog over the next three weeks for a chance to win free books! The first one is here: https://dragonauthors.com/bookwyrms/2018/09/11/crystal-singer/
I've started reading my Dragon's Code ARC, and omg I compulsively wash my hands before picking it up then wait like an extra ten minutes to make sure my hands are completely dry. It's ridiculous. I just love it so much!!!
Just $2.99 for the ebook right now!
A brilliant story of youth at an end, adulthood on the horizon, the meaning of family, the many faces of love, and the difficulty of knowing how to hold on while at the same time letting go. Think of it as a cross between a journal and a memoir, written by a modern teen with an old soul.
We've been at Dragoncon in Atlanta since last week (omg love this con!!!) and there's so much new stuff on the website! This one is FREE right now, and it looks awesome! 😍
Know what your Monday needs? A free book! 💖
We searched through a hell of books (pun intended), looking for the perfect thing to cheer up your Monday. With a fun premise, a kick-ass heroine, and a smooth, conversational writing style, it‘s a great introduction to a series that has plenty more to offer.
So go ahead. Treat yourself to that latte. We‘ve got your book covered.
This 40th anniversary edition of the classic is $1.99 today only on ebook
Steven reviewed it in a single sentence that sums it up for us both: “I don‘t see how a middle grade book can do this to somebody.” A brilliant and powerful read (not to mention a Newbery Medal winner).
#youngadult #YA #fantasy #magicalrealism #allthefeels
This one had us laughing out loud. Literally. A new favorite for our permanent library!
We listened to the audiobook. Together. We don‘t do that a lot, but now, having heard it, we find it hard to imagine this particular book any other way. Neil Gaiman‘s dry delivery of Loki‘s cleverness, Thor‘s bull-headed simplicity, and the narrator‘s scathing one-liners had us laughing so loudly that we had to rewind it more than once. ...
$0.99 sale on Air Awakens ebook.
(Or pick up the 5-book bundle for $9.99.)
We snapped this up the second it went on sale. First, the cover is gorgeous. (Is that a good reason to buy a book? Of course! Then again, we can‘t think of any bad reasons.)
Second... library girl? Love it. Dark and fiery prince? Oh, yeah. Mysterious magic society? Why isn't this book in our hands right now??? (Oh, hey, look at that. It is!)
Found this gem today. Now I can read and drink at the same time. Btw, turns out coffee is optional. Other drinks work too.
Picked up this whole trilogy 2day for $0.99. Three hilarious books I loved! (Plus a short story that's probably also funny. 😂)
Have you ever wanted to toss your computer gently out a window? Now imagine if it could talk to you and move your stuff around when you weren‘t looking. That‘s how Hal feels about Clunk, but there's one big problem with tossing him out the airlock...
Shadow and Bone; Siege and Storm; Run and Rising
– by Leigh Bardugo
This entire trilogy is on sale TODAY ONLY. Just $2.99 for each ebook!
On a personal note, I feel like I'm failing at everything today. Like *everything.*
(Help. Send cookies.)
I love it when a main character actually grows over the course of a series. Developing as a person, becoming more confident. Without any spoilers (ever!), Tessa has done just that. I loved her in the beginning, and I love her now. I just finished Being Alpha about five minutes ago, and I already can‘t wait for the next one!

Only $0.99 on Kindle today!
This whole series has been sitting pretty at the top of Amazon‘s fairy tale retelling chart for ages. (Disney, Disney, Disney, Cinder, Disney, Disney…) So, frankly, it‘s a little weird to see one of them on sale. Why would they bother? We don‘t know, but grab it while you can. Before they change their minds.

Still posting daily book sales on the blog at https://dragonauthors.com - if you haven't been lately, check it out. We've grown a ton! 📚
In 1876, the hunt for ancient bones is more thievery than science. When a spoiled Yale student takes a bet that he can‘t survive one summer in the Wild West with paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh, he‘s in way over his head.
His boss might be paranoid, but the bullets are real.

Happy reading!!! 💖
Erin would give the whole series five stars; Steven, just this one. The first. But Ender‘s Game is magnificent as a stand-alone.
If you tried to watch the movie without having read it, don't judge the book by that. (When should we ever?) Ender's mind is subtle and complex, but his heart is the story. Maybe a film just can't show it.
Oh, and the ebook is only $2.99 today!!!
P.S. We did it! Thank you!!! Together, we reached our QUADRUPLE STRETCH GOAL of FORTY THOUSAND downloads of The Wendy!!! Our family of readers just got a whole lot bigger, and we couldn't have done it without you! https://amzn.to/2NXeVZn

A magical romantic comedy... with a body count. 😂
And only $0.99 atm! Yay sale!
I'm so excited to have found this one! The first chapter was hilarious, so I bought it. It has a good bit of cursing, so that might not be for you, but I grew up in New Jersey. (At home, cursing was a federal offense. At school, it was a survival skill. I learned to compartmentalize.)

Help us fill this stadium!!! Our FREE offer of The Wendy needs 1,000 more downloads to fill this stadium!!! We're just over 39,000, and we want that 40K!!!

The Gears of War fandom is OFF THE CHAIN! Gears 5, Gears Pop, Gears Tactics… the screams at E3 just kept coming. Aspho Fields is the prequel to the series, and we‘re suckers for backstory. Imagine knowing the game characters as well as you do in a book! Crazy, right? We think so, too, and now‘s our chance to find out. https://amzn.to/2LHGkhc

If you can imagine an ABC Afterschool Special mash-up of The Goonies and the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon series, you‘ll have a decent idea of what this book is. Don‘t know either of those? They're both from the era that inspired Stranger Things. Here, we‘ll help you out.

Magical realism. A genre tied closely to fantasy, but the magic happens in the everyday world. When done well, it's magnificent, and today‘s bookaholic deal is one of the best examples of its kind.

Litsy, soon: By God, what have we done???
That highlighted sentence made me laugh out loud. Second time in the first two pages of the sample!!! I'm totally getting it.

(Yes, we buy almost all of them. 😂) Thank the book gods at least some of them are free!

The Brilliance Trilogy: all 3 sci fi thrillers are more than 60% off! $1.99 Kindle Sale on each book, or only $5.37 if you buy them together!
Gillian Flynn, the bestselling author of Gone Girl, called the Brilliance series “Ridiculously good.” That‘s what we think about this sale. The series has been on our TBR ever since it came out, nominated for the Edgar, Lovey, Sideways, and Prometheus awards. Yes, all of them.
We discovered this story through the Netflix series. We were impressed by the series, and we expect to feel the same way about the book–a New York Times bestseller–which we just bought for less than the price of a cup of coffee. (We might not live in the age of immortality yet, but you sure can‘t beat the entertainment.) Anyone read it? What did you think? Just $2.99 right now on Kindle. https://amzn.to/2zTqhve
#scifi #thrillers #deals #bargains
Weirdly, I just discovered the HARDCOVER of The Intuitives (one of our own titles) is only $3.82 on Amazon right now, with free shipping for Prime members. Makes a great summer read (or a great back to school present), and it won't stay at that price--usually $18.99! (Confession: I tried to buy as many as I could, to resell at conventions, but it's limit one per customer. 😂) So... enjoy! https://amzn.to/2JExQ8u
#youngadult #ya #fantasy #magic
Usually $19.99 in ebook format, the first 3 books are on sale, collected in a single volume, for only $2.99. We read it ages ago. Lasting impressions? Loved the main character!

The deal is only a few more days, so if you want one snap it up fast!
