12 Best Book Deals for 1/4/19: Bird Box, Bridge of Clay, My Plain Jane, and more

I get emails all the time listing book deals and I finally realized that I should be sharing these! Here’s a list of some crazy deals that I found today (they’re all Kindle downloads from Amazon). Now, I’m not sure how long these books will be at this price, but hopefully they’ll be this way for a few days!


Bridge of Clay by Markus Zusak – My husband bought this book the day it came out because he was so excited (and he doesn’t get very excited about books). We love Markus Zusak who is also the author of The Book Thief.

My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows – I just finished reading this one a couple of weeks ago and I loved it! It’s in the same vein as the first book (My Lady Jane) and I thought it was SO FUN. Granted, I haven’t actually read Jane Eyre, but from that perspective it was still really fun!

The Jewel (Jewel Series Book 1) by Amy Ewing – I read this one a while ago and it’s your basic dystopian series, but I think I remember finding it pretty enjoyable.

Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson – I haven’t read this one yet, but it’s got great reviews on Goodreads.

Jackaby by William Ritter – I really like this series! It’s kind of Doctor Who-ish meets Sherlock Holmes. Here’s a link to my review from a couple of years ago.

Firefight (The Reckoners Book 2) and Calamity (The Reckoners Book 3) by Brandon Sanderson – This is a series that I need to finish! I really enjoyed the first two books and the third has been sitting on my shelf for ages. Here’s a link to my review of Firefight.

The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye – I haven’t read this one yet either, but I’ve heard really good things.

Sabriel (Old Kingdom Book 1) by Garth Nix – This is a series that I know I need to start–it’s been on my list forever. Maybe this will be the year!


Bird Box: A Novel by Josh Malerman – I read this book during library school for a horror assignment and now it’s a Netflix movie with Sandra Bullock! I’m not usually a big horror person, but I was still able to read this book. I personally think that this story is better told as a book than a movie. In the book, when the characters can’t see anything, neither can the reader and that really helps build suspense–I’m not sure how well that translates to the screen. Here’s a link to my annotation for school.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis – Classic, just so classic. Def worth having in your collection imo.

The Diviners by Libba Bray – First, I’m just going to say that this book is a commitment. It’s LONG and it’s a series where you really should read more than just the first book. That being said, it’s super atmospheric and the time period oozes off the page. Here’s a link to my review.

The Invisible Library (The Invisible Library Novel Book 1) by Genevieve Cogman – I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this book for review before it was published in the US and I was blown away! I didn’t really know what to expect when I got it, but it’s SO GOOD and there are like five books in the series, so if you like it, you can BINGE. Here’s a link to my review.

So there you go, enjoy! Let me know if you decide to get any of these/what you’ve already read/which ones of these you’ve enjoyed!
