Where Do I Buy Cheap Books? (Top 6)

This was actually requested in a few comments like forever ago but I'm been so busy with work, classes, and my grandmama. We found out she had colon cancer but thankfully, they were able to do surgery and it's all gone. Which is such a relief! 

Now onto the places, I get cheap books from! Most are online because sadly, there is only one good cheap bookstore close to me. Which is awesome. It's called Half Price Books and if you have one close and haven't been.... I must ask, why? What are you doing with your life? I got the whole Blue Blood series from there for less than (US)$10 and all but the first where hardcover. No joke. Awesome place. They do also have an online site so be sure and check that out. 

Now for the online places, which I use more than anything else. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE book stores, but sadly there isn't many around me. I have Barnes & Noble but everything there is cover price and when you don't have the most money, you have to try and get as many books as cheap as you can. I'm usually a fast reader. Reading at least two books a week if I'm having a good week. 

So, here is a list of the best websites that I know of. If you guys know of any that I haven't mentioned, leave the links below, sharing is caring! I actually look at a lot of websites before buying a book. Sometimes though, if I want the book that badly, I will simply go to Target and grab it. Sometimes you just got to have the book now, right? 

This website is awesome, free (US) shipping on orders over $10. They have used books that can less than $5 and they even sell new books but they're usually cover price. Used books are the way to go here. Every used book I've bought from here is like brand new. 

I love this site! I always buy new from here because they are just so cheap! If you've been following my Twitter or seen my latest book haul, than you know the deals I've gotten. There is no free shipping on this site though. Shipping starts out $3.99 (US) for two books.

This site is hit and miss. I've found some great buys on here and other times they suck. I actually got my sister the whole TMI series on ebay, brand new for only $15.00. Epic.

This one is a given. You can find cheap books on here if you look. I got Shatter Me for around $5. Not to mention that the new releases are usually cheaper and if you have Prime, free two day shipping is awesome. 

This site is pretty cool too. They have more than just books but when I last checked they had Glass Sword for only $13.99. Brand new, hardcover. Not bad really if you ask me. Though in this case, Amazon is still cheaper by a dollar. Like I said before, I check many sites before buying a book. Always trying to find the cheapest.

I know a lot of people will ask why I didn't add Book Depository to this list, the answer is simple, I ordered from there once and the book never arrived. So I contacted them and they nicely sent me out another copy.... which also never got here either. So I sent them another email and they just refunded me, I've never ordered from them again nor will I ever recommend it. Which is sad, I was so excited to use that site and get the cool UK editions of my favorite books. But that site is just not my friend. 

So this is the list, I'm sure there are more that I'm forgetting at the moment but if you can't find the book you're looking for out of these sites than that's kind of sad actually. Hope this list is helpful and it aids you on your book buying journey! 

Happy reading my lovely sunflowers!

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading! 

Bisexual Erasure (Pride Month)

Happy Pride! Since today is bisexual day, I wanted to talk about something important to me. I hope you'll listen with open ears, mind, and heart. Thank you.  I’ve seen this happening for years now. People will say things like, “it’s a phase” or “pick a side.” I’ve even seen some say that bisexual people only like cisgender men and women and exclude all other genders. Which isn’t always the case. Sure, some bisexual people feel that way, which is why pansexual and other names came into play. But at its core, being bisexual just means that you’re attracted to more than just one gender.  I’ve never hidden on this blog the fact that I’m bisexual but I rarely talk about the struggles I feel because it just never felt right when you have gay people that have to hide their complete selves for fear of what the world could do to them.  Or trans people who spend every day trapped in the wrong body and can’t tell anyone to get the things they need to be their truth selves.  Put against issues
