Amazon haul: All for free

As you can tell, I read a lot of cute, cheesy romance books from Amazon, most of which are fantasy/paranormal and pretty much unheard of. But I have found some absolute gems from free Amazon promotions! At the end of the day, you should never judge a book by it’s cover.

Pretty much all of these are LGBTQ+ and free, so what have you got to loose?

  1. She Kissed Me First (f/f)
  2. Crimson White (m/m)
  3. Whom the Gods Love
  4. Vampire University
  5. Love/Hate (f/f)
  6. Omega in the Wild (m/m)
  7. The Wedding Date (m/m)
  8. Truth and Beard (m/f)
  9. Take Me Back (f/f)
  10. Lancelot and the King (m/m)
  11. Sleepwalking (f/f)
  12. Frostbitten (f/f)
  13. The Billionaires Boyfriend (m/m)
  14. The Gilded King
  15. The Dark Fae series (m/f)

    1. Heartstopper is one of my favourite books of 2019 so far! I don’t think anything will be able to top it at the moment 😂

      Not yet! But I had the opportunity to trade for the Owlcrate version, which is stunning, so I couldn’t pass it up! Also, I loved The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black and I don’t think this will be an exception! I am trying to hold out until the 3rd book comes out so I can binge read them 😀

  3. Great post!

    I haven’t read the book version yet, but I saw the musical Dear Evan Hansen awhiles back. I actually saw it before it went to Broadway when it had a run Off-Broadway. Such a great show with so many amazing songs. Hope to read the book version sometime this year.

      1. Yes, the show is really quite wonderful. I saw it before it was this big musical. Normally I would have waited for it to go to Broadway, but I just couldn’t wait to see it when it came to NY. Which was lucky for me because when it went to Broadway tickets were nearly impossible to get. Hope you get to see the show too!
