I can hardly believe we’re here – I love this time of year and am so excited for all the fun things ahead.
Hopefully with all the holiday madness, you also get a chance to snuggle up with a good book or two. Here are some favorite book deals this weekend.
(P.S. If you’re looking for a fun holiday read, this audiobook is 99 cents and SO delightful. I listened to it last week and I’ve heard from scores of other readers who have loved it this holiday season too!).
Book Deals for the First Weekend in December
The Measure by Nikki Erlick – audiobook
The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah – ebook
I already know that The Four Winds is divisive. I LOVED it and couldn’t stop listening – blowing through the 15 hour of audio in just days – but I know other people found it too depressing. I was sucked in to this story of the Dust Bowl during the Great Depression and a woman who will do whatever it takes to protect her children. After growing up in a family that consider her too weak (thanks to a childhood illness) and too homely to ever marry and then a husband who can’t find the happiness he seeks with his family, she knows that the only person she can really rely on is herself. If you love historical fiction and strong characters, this one is a winner. (Full review here)
Ada Twist and the Disappearing Dogs (Book #5) by Andrea Beaty – audiobook
You may know Andrea Beaty’s picture books but have you checked out her chapter book series featuring the same characters? They’re under two hours long and read by a FABULOUS narrator. (This one is also a Libro.fm title, which means you can make it into a Yoto card!).
At Home in the World: Reflections on Belonging While Wandering the Globeby Tsh Oxenreider – audiobook
The first thing I have to say about At Home in the World is that I don’t usually like travel memoirs. The second thing I have to say about At Home in the World is that I LOVED it. Read the full review here.
