I hope you’re celebrating in some fun way!
We’re having our traditional Halloween dinner as a family (all the details here) and my girls are beside themselves with excitement.
I’m also pulling out a copy of the Rad Reader Halloween calendar for my girls to color today – it’s not too late to print one out and enjoy it!
Plus here are some great book deals you won’t want to miss this week.
4 Great Weekend Book Deals
The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary – audiobook for $3.99
This book was on the 2020 Summer Reading Guide and it’s just SO delightful! It follows two two people who live in the same apartment, but have never met – Tiffy is coming off a bad breakup and needs a new place in a hurry and Leon only uses his apartment for sleeping during the day since he works a graveyard shift. As the two start leaving notes for each other (at first slightly snippy), they slowly come to like each other but. . . they’ve still never met. This deal is a Chirp audiobook deal – if you’ve never used Chirp before, here’s a whole post about how it works. Plus if it’s your first Chirp purchase, you can use this link for an additional 20% off their already rock bottom prices.
The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin- ebook for $1.99
This book kicked off my summer reading back in 2014 and I’ve loved it ever since about a grumpy bookshop owner who is losing money, has his rarest book stolen and then finds a baby left on his doorstep. This book is a reader’s DELIGHT. (Full review here)
Heartless by Marissa Meyer – ebook for $2.99
You might recognized Marissa Meyer’s name from her wildly popular series The Lunar Chronicles. This is her first standalone book and it’s a backstory to the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. I’ve gotten a million requests for more fractured fairy tale stories since I talked about A Curse So Dark and Lonely this spring, and this seems like just what the doctor ordered!
Where’s Santa Claus? by Ingela P Arrhenius – board book for $4.49
I love this darling lift-the-flap book because the flaps are made out of felt and therefore nearly indestructible. I also love the vintage look of the illustrations, along with the bright colors. And when it’s 50% off? A total holiday win!
