Slice of Life: Weekly Book Deals, Links and Tidbits

Reaching for delicious pizza


Slice of Life is a regular update on the latest in my life. This is where I write about my books, movies, tv, food, fashion, family or whatever subjects are on my mind that week. It’s just a little glimpse of my slice. (“But what about the great deals on books?!” Just keep on scrollin’.)

This post contains affiliate links. If you click on one and make a purchase, I make a small commission (at no cost to you!).

  • Every week, we get a little more relaxed and the homeschooling goes a little smoother. Still, I was very thankful when our local school announced there will be no required lessons for today. I hope you all have a blessed Easter weekend!

Amazing Book Deals

Whether I have read (and loved) it, heard about it from fellow bookish friends or actually have it on my own “to be read” list, each book below made this list because it’s on my radar (AND because it’s on sale). Note: Book bargains are subject to change so act fast!

NOTE: My weekly book deals list will soon be moved out of “Slice of Life” and onto to its own page on my site. The new book deals page will be updated (and emailed to my mailing list) on a weekly basis.
