Quick Kindle Steals (Vol 3): Queer books you can buy for $2.99 or less

Quick Kindle Steals (Vol 3): Queer books you can buy for $2.99 or less

The essence of Quick Kindle Steals is pretty simple and straightforward: hunt down any number of discounted (preferably $2.99 or less) or free e-books (either permanently or time-limited prices) and share these finds on my blog. Hopefully, doing this will help introduce struggling readers, such as myself, to more titles that they can afford!

This isn’t a weekly feature, but I lurk around Amazon so frequently that I’ll definitely be doing more volumes of this! I also make Twitter threads about limited-time Kindle deals so be sure to follow me on Twitter and check out the #QuickKindleSteals hashtag. Also, please take note that you need to have the free Kindle app installed in your device before purchasing any of these books.

YARC 2019: Share & link up the Asian books you’ve read in June!

Another month, another opportunity to share a bit (or a lot of) love for books written by Asian authors. In other words, a new month means the start of another monthly link-up for the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge 2019. Yay!

If you’re currently participating in this fun reading challenge, then use this post to share all the Asian books you read for the month of June. I’m sure everyone, including me, is interested in which titles you picked up! Plus, read on to find fun challenge prompts and book recommendations (that just might help you with those prompts).

On the other hand, if this is your first time to hear about YARC 2019, then read on anyway and learn how you can join in on all the fun!

YARC 2019: Share & link up the Asian books you’ve read in May!

First and foremost, I’d like to extend my most sincere apologies to everyone for the huge, huge delay with this month’s link-up post for the Year of the Asian reading challenge. May has not been kind to me at all, and I think that’s reflected in the near absence of blog posts throughout this month. To make up for the delay, the closing of link-up submissions has been moved to a latter date, namely, June 25th. Hopefully, this will be the first and last time an incident will happen. Again, I’m very sorry.

I’m sure everyone, including me, is interested in which titles you picked up! Plus, read on to find fun challenge prompts and book recommendations (that just might help you with those prompts).

SIGN UP: Blog/Bookstagram tour for My Fate According to the Butterfly by Gail D. Villanueva

Okay, is it just me or have there been a lot of blog tour sign-ups on this blog lately? And there will be more to come soon — okay, I’m getting way ahead of myself. I hope y’all aren’t sick of them yet because the tour for My Fate According to the Butterfly is an extremely special one!

For one thing, I am organizing this alongside two of my closest blogging friends, Kate @ Your Tita, Kate and Cara @ The Little Miss Bookworm, and the four of us have been plotting this tour since December last year! And nope, I’m not miscounting — because the author herself, Gail D. Villanueva, was the one responsible for reaching out to us and offering this incredible opportunity (Love you, Gail!). Gail’s been really involved throughout the planning and preparation for this tour, so I guarantee that all of you are in for a treat!

Unveiling the cover for Secondhand Origin Stories by Lee Blauersouth (ft. an INT’L giveaway!)

Unveiling the cover for Secondhand Origin Stories by Lee Blauersouth (ft. an INT’L giveaway!)

Today marks an extremely special day about a book that’s personally close to my heart. If y’all have been following my blog before it rebranded into the golden brown, sunflower-filled space it is today, then the title Secondhand Origin Stories might strike a familiar chord to you. I’ve gushed and lovingly screamed about this wonderfully diverse literary gem on more than one occasion. In fact, I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to organize a blog tour for this book, the #SHOSPH blog tour with a huge bunch of talented, passionate bloggers.

There are honestly so many aspects in Secondhand Origin Stories (written by the amazing Lee Blauersouth) that I absolutely love — its family-centered superhero plot, its remarkable bluntness in tackling social issues, its heartwarming portrayal of friendship and loyalty among a diverse group of superpowered teenagers, and the list stretches interminably. With that said, I am genuinely overjoyed to inform all of you that Lee Blauersouth’s self-published YA debut is celebrating its first year! Yep, today marks the first book birthday of Secondhand Origin Stories.
