This post was created in partnership with BookBub. All opinions and thoughts expressed are completely my own. Anyone who knows me knows how passionate I am about reading. Reading is one of my greatest loves in life, what I love to do to unwind at the end of a long day, and the first thing that comes to mind when someone asks me about my hobbies. One of my life’s dreams was to have a “library” in my home (which we finished earlier this year) and one of my favorite nights of each month is when I get to go to book club with my friends and laugh and talk and eat and discuss our latest reads!
I love reading almost everything! From science fiction, to self help, to young adult novels, to historical fiction to romance to memoirs, I love it all! The only real challenges that accompany loving to read as much as I do are selecting books that are worth my time and not spending all my money on them! Haha. I recently discovered BookBub and I am obsessed with it! It is a completely FREE service that allows you to select your preferences and enter favorite authors etc. and then they have experts who curate lists that fit your tastes of great ebooks that are worth reading! Plus, you wanna know the best part?! They are always $3.99 and under! I don’t know about you but it is a lot easier for me to take a chance on a new book or author when it’s super cheap to download, and I have already found a few new favorites through BookBub that were completely free!
All you need to do is go to BookBub’s website or download the app and enter your preferences, then they’ll alert you when your favorite books go on sale, or you can click the app and scroll through their featured deals anytime you are in need of a good read and download the ones that suit your fancy!

To show you just how easy it is to find great deals on BookBub, I thought I would show you some great deals on awesome books that I’ve added to my summer reading list recently! Since one of my favorite times to read is on vacation, and it’s that time of year, I thought this could be the perfect way to take your summer travel/pool plans over the top! Of course, they all obviously can be enjoyed year round! There is quite a variety on here, so there should be something for everyone! Okay you ready for my list?! These are in no particular order…

6) Damnificados by J. J. Amaworo Wilson
I am a sucker for fantasy and can’t wait to read Damnificados! “Damnificados is loosely based on the real-life occupation of a half-completed skyscraper in Caracas, Venezuela, the Tower of David. In this fictional version, six hundred ‘damnificados’ – vagabonds and misfits – take over an abandoned urban tower and set up a community complete with schools, stores, beauty salons, bakeries and a rag-tag defensive militia. Their always heroic (and often hilarious) struggle for survival and dignity pits them against corrupt police, the brutal military and the tyrannical ‘owners’.” Currently on sale for only $.99!
