Off the Page by Jodi Picoult and daughter – A tender and romantic YA novel filled with humor, adventure, and just a little bit of magic – $2.99 0 comments

Meet Oliver, a prince literally taken from the pages of a fairy tale and transported into the real world. Meet Delilah, the girl who wished Oliver into being. It’s a miracle that seems perfect at first. Sure, Oliver doesn’t know that you shouldn’t try to open your locker with a dagger or that there’s no such thing as “the ruler” of the local mall. But he also looks at Delilah as if she’s the only girl in the world—the only girl in any world—and Delilah can’t help feeling that being with him is a dream come to life.
But not every story can have a happy ending. Because the book wants Oliver back. And it will turn both worlds upside down to get him.
Oliver and Delilah will have to decide what—and who—they’re willing to risk for love and what it really means for a fairy tale to come true.

Love Letters to the Dead – Teen fiction – $2.99 – Today’s B&N price match 0 comments

It begins as an assignment for English class: Write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May did. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to people like Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Amelia Earhart, Heath Ledger, and more — though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher.
She writes about starting high school, navigating new friendships, falling in love for the first time, learning to live with her splintering family. And, finally, about the abuse she suffered while May was supposed to be looking out for her. Only then, once Laurel has written down the truth about what happened to herself, can she truly begin to accept what happened to May. And only when Laurel has begun to see her sister as the person she was — lovely and amazing and deeply flawed — can she begin to discover her own path.

Housekeeping: Errors were made and Cheap Reads 3 comments

broom.panDefying Description
Dragons3 sent a comment that the description on one of yesterday’s post wasn’t the correct. I sincerely appreciate when you tell me about these types of things. I want this blog to be as error-free as possible and appreciate your help in identifying the mistakes and typos.
One of the reasons that Dragon3 sent the comment was to ask the title of the book that fit the description as that book appealed to her/him. Here is the blurb matched with the right book:
Now or Never (99 cents) She can keep the doors locked. The lights on. Her fingers crossed. But she can’t stop the memories of a terrifying crime. Or keep it from happening again.
The murderer took his time choosing his pretty victims. Then he took his time killing them. What was left when he finished made even veteran Boston cop Harry Jordan feel sick. But this time the killer made a mistake. His victim was found alive.
Armed with a police sketch of the man, Harry wanted national publicity, the kind he could get from Mallory Malone, the “TV detective.” Her top-rated show reenacted heinous crimes and often jogged witnesses’ memories enough to shake loose the clue that could break the case. But not this time.
This case was different for self-made career woman Mallory Malone. This cop was different. The case scared her; the cop was falling in love with her. Her instincts told her to run. But the killer already knew her name. Her address. And a secret that could destroy them both.
 
Children’s Books Selling Cheap
A child who reads (1)I want to believe that the sentiment on the graphic on the right is correct. I know that almost all adults who enjoy reading for pleasure were also avid readers as children.
One could conclude that readers have active imaginations as they visualize events in their mind’s eye, solve mysteries, resolve conflicts, and more through the books they read. We certainly learn and expand our horizons.
If you are like me and enjoy children’s literature or know a child who would enjoy the gift of a Kindle book, Simon & Schuster has reduced the price of many of their books for children ages 4-12.
 
 
These six books are for young readers ages 4-8 and are selling for $1.99 each:
