YA Ebook Deals To Snap Up

Hey YA Fans!

‘Tis the perfect time to grab some ebooks that are on discount this weekend. Fill up that ereader with new-to-you titles.

As always, prices change, but these deals are active as of Friday, August 21.

My award-winning anthology (Don’t) Call Me Crazy: 33 Voices Start The Conversation About Mental Health is currently $2.

Need a spooky read? Kate Alice Marshall’s Rules for Vanishing is $3. You can also snag I Am Still Alive (which I loved so much!) for $3.

I can’t wait to pick up Here There Are Monsters by Amelinda Bérubé. $2.

The Babysitters Coven by Kate M. Williams, which has a sequel coming out soon, is $2.

Have you read Unpregnant yet? You should before it hits screens. A road trip between frenemies who are seeking an abortion is both a book tackling serious issues and also a total freakin’ romp. $2.

Wicked As You Wish by Rin Chupeco is $3.

Speaking of Rin Chupeco, The Girl From The Well is also on sale for $2. I hadn’t intended for this to be a deal roundup of a lot of spooky-feeling stories, but here we are!

Labyrinth Lost and Bruja Born, the first two books inZoraida Córdova’s “Brooklyn Brujas” series are each $2. Read ’em before the third hits shelves September 1.

We’ll Fly Away by Bryan Bliss is $2.

Have you read any books by Julian Winter yet? Maybe begin with How To Be Remy Cameron. $1.

Darius The Great Is Not Okay by Adib Khorram is an award-winning book and the sequel hits shelves next week, so catch up while the ebook is a whole $2.

Get to know the history of US women’s suffrage with Votes For Women by Winifred Conkling. $2.

And then read a queer love story with Tell Me Again How A Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan. $2.

If you’re free today and are up for a rad virtual event, you can hear Eric Smith (my Hey YA podcast cohost!), Alicia Lutes, Junauda Petrus, Rachael Lippincott, and myself talking about Body Talk, adolescence, and more at 3 pm central with Blue Willow Books. It’ll stream over on Facebook. (I promise promotion season is almost over — but dang, look at these rockstars!).

Thanks for hanging out, y’all!
