Cheapies and Freebies: Books Bought in May 2019

New Book Tag! I’ve started to keep track of all the  e-books that I’ve acquired in a month that are NOT arcs, and are typically either Kindle Freebies or less than $5 on Amazon. Last month, I purchased quite a hefty few despite the 80+ Arcs that I have to read on Netgalley. *dies forever* Here listed are all the books with author names, though I did not save prices, I will remind myself to do that for this month and onwards. Strikethroughs indicate ones read. *laughs hysterically, because there are none read!* And onwards we go! {Note: this is in no particular order, because I have no idea the order of which I got these, except City of Masks was the last book I got in May.} Listing just my favorite covers as well, because otherwise that’s a LOT of covers to put into the post!:

1.City of Masks by Ashley Capes (got it free, now it’s $3.99)
2.Magic of the Gargoyles by Rebecca Chastain (still free!)

And there you have it. Thirty books gathered and sitting in my kindle waiting impatiently to be read. I’m hoping to at least get through some of these next month when I post the list again and show how many I’ve gotten through. Some are quite short, some are ridiculously long (Priory, I’m looking at you!), and some are just the right length. I might post the amount of ARCs that I got, though that will be easily four times as long as this list! Maybe the ones I’m most excited about? Not sure. Let me know in the comments what you think, and I hope you enjoyed the deals that I brought you, as well as this ridiculously long list of unread e-books.

Also, I tag these lovely people to do the same thing next month or this month since it’s early enough: @BewareoftheReader, @abookutopia, and @howlinglibraries. You don’t have to, of course, this is all just for fun!

Until next time,

If there’s any mistakes or anything, please let me know. What books did you get last month? Anything good? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,
