Here are some great (and free!) deals going on right now for ebooks. Most are available for Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Google Play, and Kobo.
1. Silence by Natasha Preston
This week’s freebie is Natasha Preston’s Silence, book 1 of her Silence series. It’s free for Kindle, Nook, iBooks, and through Kobo. The sequel, Broken Silence, is only $2.99 on each site, as well. If you’re looking for a new series to check out, this might be a good option.
2. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
With the movie coming out sometime next year (directed by Tim Burton), this one is definitely worth a read. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs is about a boy who finds himself living in a home with children who have various special powers. The home is run by a woman (Miss Peregrine) who can transform into (you guessed it) a peregrine falcon. It’s a little Harry Potter and a little X-Men, and definitely an entertaining book. Currently it’s only $3.99 for Kindle and iBooks. The sequel, Hollow City, came out in January.
3. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
Maya Angelou’s classic I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is only $3.99 for Kindle, iBooks, and Nook. I try to keep a good stash of books that never get old because sometimes it’s nice to step away from all the modern stuff and check out something that’s been around for awhile.
4. The Faerie Guardian by Rachel Morgan
Rachel Morgan’s The Faerie Guardian, book 1 of theCreepy Hollow series is free for both Kindle and Nook (and only $.99 through iBooks and Kobo). If you’re looking for a new series to read, this is another one will be great because the first installment is free!
5. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
For those of you who were fans of Gone Girl, you may want to check out one of Gillian Flynn’s other novels while it’s at such a low price. Dark Places is only $2.50 for Kindle and on Google Play (compare to $4.99 on iBooks, $7.99 for Nook, and $9.99 though Kobo). I’ll be up front in saying that I really wasn’t a fan of how Gone Girl ended (read my review here, if you’d like), but it was still a page-turner and the writing was good. Those two things are enough to make me check out her other works, just in case.
So there they are! Happy Reading!
