Quick Kindle Steals (Vol 6): Books you can buy for $2.99 or less!

Hey there! The essence of Quick Kindle steals is pretty simple and straightforward: hunt down any number of discounted (preferably $2.99 or less) or free e-books (either permanently or time-limited prices) and share these finds on my blog. Hopefully, doing this will help introduce struggling readers, such as myself, to more titles that they can afford! (If you’re interested in learning more about what inspired this idea, then you can read about it here.)

This isn’t a weekly feature, but I lurk around Amazon so frequently that I’ll definitely be doing more volumes of this! I also make Twitter threads about limited-time Kindle deals so be sure to follow me on Twitter and check out the #QuickKindleSteals hashtag. Also, make sure that you have the free Kindle app installed in your device before purchasing any of these books.

14 book covers in 2018 that should be framed in museums

In my last Top Ten Tuesday post, I shared a dozen of my favorite book covers from Asian authors. This time around, I’ve decided to deviate again from the prompt given by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl to talk about more of my favorite book covers!

There are so many exceptionally stunning book covers in 2018, as well as revealed covers for upcoming releases in 2019. In fact, a lot of them are so gorgeous I think we should really consider starting a museum for book covers. Picking out my favorites was a seriously daunting and incredibly difficult endeavor, if I’m being honest.

Here are 14 of my favorite cover reveals in 2018 (from non-Asian authors) that deserve to be displayed in a museum for book covers! A lot, if not most, of them are covers for diverse books – so yay, this is truly a fantastic year for diversity!

12 Asian book cover reveals in 2018 that had me bawling my eyes out

For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, I’ve decided to deviate from the prompt given by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl and, instead, dedicate this post to something I’ve been wanting to talk about for what feels like forever.

The title of this post is a dead giveaway: 2018 cover reveals of books written by Asian authors that had me bawling my eyes out from the intensity of my feels(!!!).

This is a momentous occasion for me personally because I usually dislike sharing cover reveals on my blog. This largely stems from the fact that one of my book blogging pet peeves are generic, manufactured posts about cover reveals – you know the type: posts that show off the book cover, synopsis, author bio, and purchase links without adding anything else (I mean, how long did it take you to copy and paste all of that, huh?)

A Spark of White Fire, by Sangu Mandanna || Complex families, political schemes, & interstellar awesomeness (& a giveaway)


Title: A Spark of White Fire
Author: Sangu Mandanna
Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Fantasy
Copy: Physical ARC
Rating:

* More about the book.
* More about the author.
* More about the blog tour.
* Purchase via Amazon or Book Depository.

Synopsis:

In a universe of capricious gods, dark moons, and kingdoms built on the backs of spaceships, a cursed queen sends her infant daughter away, a jealous uncle steals the throne of Kali from his nephew, and an exiled prince vows to take his crown back.

Raised alone and far away from her home on Kali, Esmae longs to return to her family. When the King of Wychstar offers to gift the unbeatable, sentient warship Titania to a warrior that can win his competition, she sees her way home: she’ll enter the competition, reveal her true identity to the world, and help her famous brother win back the crown of Kali.

It’s a great plan. Until it falls apart.

Inspired by the Mahabharata and other ancient Indian stories, A Spark of White Fire is a lush, sweeping space opera about family, curses, and the endless battle between jealousy and love.

Review:

Despite being heavily influenced by the ancient epic Mahabharata and other Indian lore, there is nothing quite like Mandanna’s latest novel – A Spark of White Fire is an absolutely unique, genre-defying gamechanger in YA. I’ll admit that I have never read the Mahabharata (although after reading this novel, I definitely plan to eventually get to it) so I don’t know how much material was adopted in the story. Nonetheless, by the end of it all, A Spark of White Fire is truly an incomparable gem of a space opera.
