T10T: Most Recent Kindle Purchases

November 13, 2018


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s challenge was to list 10 bookish merch items I’d like to own, but I’ve mostly stopped collecting bookish merch because I ran out of room? So, instead, I thought I’d go with something else shopping-inspired and list my fifteen most recent kindle purchases!

I went with fifteen instead of ten because… well, because I wanted to. ?

Most of these were/are on sale, so I’ll list prices for the ones still on sale! (These are for the kindle US store, so I can’t guarantee prices for other platforms or regions.) KU = available on Kindle Unlimited.


1. Killing Sarai (In the Company of Killers, #1) — J. A. Redmerski

still on sale? 
yes ($0.99); KU

2. Pennies (Dollar, #1) — Pepper Winters

    I haven’t read any of these books, but I’m drawn to Serpentine or Dream Woods, so I think you should read one of those first. Hope you have a great week.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 14, 2018 at 12:49 am

      Thank you, Katie, you too! I think I might try to read Dream Woods for Short-a-thon next month! 🙂

  • Reply ChrissiReads November 13, 2018 at 12:22 am

    I do love a Kindle bargain! 🙂 Looks like you’ve picked up some great books.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 14, 2018 at 12:50 am

      Thank you! 😀 I had stopped checking the sale emails for several months there because my Kindle was on the fritz, but I get a new Kindle this month and decided to start shopping for them again!

  • Reply HEATHERWRIMO ?✏️✨ (@SPEWYouVoldy) November 13, 2018 at 12:47 am

    Coaralineeeeeeee!!! If you haven’t read it yet, I HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Overall, what good deals! I love a good Kindle bargain deal! The Bookbub and BookPerk emails are the only ones I look forward to every day haha. <3

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 14, 2018 at 12:53 am

      I have NEVER read Coraline, can you believe it?! :O I’m hopefully going to read it for Short-a-thon, though! Hahaha I feel you, I love those emails! 😀

  • Reply Brooke Lorren November 13, 2018 at 2:18 am

    Those Amazon cheap books always get me. I guess I’m not the only person who had trouble thinking of stuff to get.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 14, 2018 at 12:54 am

      They’re so cheap when they go on sale that it’s easy to buy a bunch and forget that they add up over time, haha! 🙂

  • Reply Danielle @ Life of a Literary Nerd November 13, 2018 at 3:17 am

    I read the first Ellie Jordan book but I really don’t remember it.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 14, 2018 at 12:56 am

      I don’t hear much about it, but I love ghost hunter stories, and I couldn’t beat the price, right? 😀

  • Reply Greg November 13, 2018 at 3:52 am

    Ooh Witching Hour Theatre looks kinda good, and I love the look of The Uninvited!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 14, 2018 at 12:56 am

      I love what I’ve read from Jonathan Janz so far, so I’m super excited for Witching Hour Theatre! And yes, I hear lots of good things about The Uninvited. 🙂

  • Reply Kathy @ Books & Munches November 13, 2018 at 4:04 am

    I don’t know ANY of these and the ones that looked interesting at first sight, I didn’t find that interesting anymore after reading the Goodreads-synopsis, haha. Probably also has to do with my mind totally NOT being at the right space for dark things right now. 😛
    [Also: do I want to know in what time span you bought all these?]

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 14, 2018 at 12:58 am

      Bahahah yeah, there’s a bit of a theme going on with most of them, right? 😛 Hmm… over the last… 2-3 weeks? Most of them were $1 at the time I bought them so I don’t feel too bad, but my haul is gonna be mostly ebooks this month for sure. ?

      • Reply Kathy @ Books & Munches November 15, 2018 at 3:04 am

        Hm, okay. You’re safe. I was half expecting you to say “oooh, a couple of days maybe?” 😛
        I’ve bought.. two ebooks this year? One of which being KoA, haha. I’m still rocking my haul this month though! Only four on it! [I still haven’t given in to temptation but the urge to order books is getting bigger and bigger..]

        • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 16, 2018 at 1:07 pm

          Bahaha thankfully, no! But if you saw the ARCs I’ve accepted and requested this week… I hate myself a little lmao. I really am going to adopt the method you talked about with writing it down and looking at it everyday for a week or so. Starting NOW.

          • Kathy @ Books & Munches November 19, 2018 at 5:47 am

            Hahaha. I hope it’s working out so far! I actually managed to go from six / seven ARC’s on NG to.. 3 left to read and 1 to finish my review of – YAY ME. And I haven’t requested anything else! [I’m hoping to keep it that way since I do want to read my own books but lately I’ve been loving my Kindle so much?]

          • Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 19, 2018 at 11:44 pm

            Oooooh, look at you! That’s amazing! :’) And I feel you, I think I’ve told you this but the kindle app was a lifesaver for me during my pregnancy and when Isaac was a newborn, and then when I got an actual kindle it was even more so. I’m practically only reading ebooks right now since I got the new Oasis, it’s just so lightweight and comfy… 😀

          • Kathy @ Books & Munches November 21, 2018 at 3:25 am

            Yeah, you did! I might actually try and get some more ebooks when they’re on sale or something. I even prepared myself by adding an “owned-etbr” to Goodreads, haha. :’)

          • Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 23, 2018 at 9:56 pm

            Bahahah that’s awesome. I have “owned-digital”, “owned-physical”, and “owned-tbr”, and when I need to see my digital TBR I just combine those two shelves. :’)

          • Kathy @ Books & Munches November 26, 2018 at 3:10 am

            Hahah. The things we do to have some kind of overview when it comes to tbr’s.. :’)
            I’m actually doubting whether I should add a separate “etbr” on my blog as well or just stick to the physical one.. Because.. y’know.. only the latter is already plenty confronting as it is and all.. :’)

          • Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 26, 2018 at 12:36 pm

            I think you should do an eARC TBR, too! I used to do separate hauls for physical and ebooks. I have been thinking about going back to it, because I think sometimes combining them is “too much” for one post? And I feel like maybe people would enjoy seeing JUST the ebooks versus JUST the physical. Plus, like this month for example, the physical isn’t TOO crazy (okay, I mean… it’s a lot but not my worst ever lmao), but the digital is… oof. I got a LOT of free kindle books this month. o_o

          • Kathy @ Books & Munches November 27, 2018 at 2:17 am

            I’ve added an ebook part to my monthly wrap-up and I JUST made an ebook-tbr on my 2019 page as well soooo.. I’M AHEAD OF YOUR ADVICE, HAH. :’)
            I honestly like the idea of separate posts – although maybe for the wrong reasons since that did make me get Merry Inkmas. <_< On the other hand.. By the time you post that post, most of the freebies won't be free anymore. Or so I hope. :') I'm at 22 free kindle books. [I should say this month but since I've only been "buying" those for a couple of days.. Oops.]

          • Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 28, 2018 at 5:31 pm

            Lmao! Nice. I want to switch up my TBR page for 2019 but I haven’t decided what I want to do with it yet. Right now it’s just too much of one long list with nothing to really make it interesting. Hmm…

          • Kathy @ Books & Munches November 29, 2018 at 4:38 am

            Isn’t the LENGTH of the thing the interesting factor? 😛 I’m simply going to stick with alphabetically and a pre-2019 vs. 2019 set-up again. It’s easiest for me to adapt as I go. Although with the addition of ebooks, I’m not sure.. It’ll be a whole lot of divisions.. :/

          • Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 1, 2018 at 9:17 am

            True ?
            It is easier to update set up like this, that’s true! I might divide my “purchased” list from my “review copy” list, at least. I’m not sure. AUGH. ? I wish WordPress wasn’t so finicky about formatting.

          • Kathy @ Books & Munches December 2, 2018 at 1:01 am

            Oh, I’d definitely do that if I were you! I don’t even count my ARC’s as pre-2018 / pre-2019 / haul since.. they’re not even finished copies. :’)
            Ugh, don’t even mention WordPress and formatting. I will CRY and wreak havoc the day our regular editor is poof and the new one is all we can use. :/

      Yes! I’ve never read it so I thought the graphic novel could be a good intro to the story. 😀

    I’ve been meaning to read Coraline, I loved the movie for it when I was younger, but I can’t find the motivation to do it. But I DIDN’T KNOW THERE WAS A GRAPHIC NOVEL VERSION!! I bet its really pretty too! I might go for the Graphic Novel.
    Happy Reading! ?

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 14, 2018 at 1:04 am

      I had no idea there was a graphic novel version, either! I’ve only ever seen bits and pieces of the movie and never read the full novel so I’m really excited. 🙂 Thank you, happy reading to you, too!

    I have a copy of Coraline graphic novel, and it’s one of my favorite! The art is just sooo good.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 14, 2018 at 1:05 am

      That’s awesome! 🙂 If I love it as much as I expect to, I might have to put the physical version on my birthday list or something next year since I feel like art in GNs always looks so much better in person.

  • Reply Fran Rambles November 19, 2018 at 3:25 am

    OMG Magic Bites! Kate Daniels is one of my favourite series ever. When I first read it, I thought the first book was a little meh, but it’s one of those series that keep getting better and better, so it’s definitely worth sticking with it even if you’re not immediately drawn in!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries November 19, 2018 at 11:42 pm

      Ooooh, good! I’m really excited to check it out. I’ll definitely be sure to give it a couple of books in before forming an opinion if I don’t love the first one. 🙂 I’m usually a pretty big stickler on not DNFing a series after just the first book unless I just absolutely HATE it.
