Books Amazon Made Me Buy: Part IV

Sometimes, I see a book cover or a cool title and just click “Buy” before I can think about it. Okay, more like every time, but who can blame me? There’s so many interesting books out there and when I get an email saying they’re free to download, who wouldn’t just casually swing over and get them?

I know I can’t stop myself.

So here’s a mini haul of some of the most recent e-books I’ve purchased/downloaded from Amazon!

I love that all of them are YA Fantasy, except for one. Maybe it’s because YA Fantasy just has better covers, or the titles are catchier, but I’m more likely to spontaneously hit the purchase button for a YA Fantasy novel than I am any other genre – as seen here.

I’ve only purchased four books so far since the end of May, but with the holiday season slowly approaching, I know there’s going to be more and more e-book deals coming soon. Hopefully I can find my self restraint . . . though I’m excited to look into and read these books, especially Murder at Archly Manor because it sounds so good! I read the synopsis and couldn’t resist downloading this book.

What’s the most recent book you purchased/downloaded/borrowed?
