Books on a Budget! #1

Hello everyone! So I’ve decided to start a new feature on my blog where every week or however so often, I will feature great YA (and some non-YA) books that I have either absolutely loved, or that I really want and where you can get them for unbelievable prices. You guys may not know this, but about half of the books I buy come from Barnes and Noble (since it's 10 seconds away) and the other half come from discount sites I have found all over the web. 

Basically I will feature one of my favorite book buying sites and the amazing books you can find and their prices. I will link all of the books so you all can bookmark the site for future bargain hunting!!!
(Note: Just so you guys no, I will only be featuring books that are in New, Like New, or Great condition; just so you don't get a book that is completely falling apart!)

Shadowland (Mediator, Book 1) by. Meg Cabot $3.95 
Suze is a mediator -- a liaison between the living and the dead. In other words, she sees dead people. And they won't leave her alone until she helps them resolve their unfinished business with the living. But Jesse, the hot ghost haunting her bedroom, doesn't seem to need her help. Which is a relief, because Suze has just moved to sunny California and plans to start fresh, with trips to the mall instead of the cemetery, and surfing instead of spectral visitations. But the very first day at her new school, Suze realizes it's not that easy. There's a ghost with revenge on her mind ... and Suze happens to be in the way.

Faerie Wars by. Herbie Brennan $3.95 
When Henry Atherton arrives at the house of eccentric old Mr. Fogarty, he comes upon crown prince Pyrgus Malvae, who has escaped the Faerie realm, where the Faeries of the Night want to kill him. Mr. Fogarty and Henry decide to help the prince return home. It's a complex situation, involving an evil demon, two avaricious glue factory owners, and Lord Hairstreak, leader of the Faeries of the Night, each with a personal agenda that will lead to taking over the realm. A subplot (Henry realizes that his mother, not his father, is having an affair with his father's secretary) is totally unnecessary, and there are discrepancies in the story and some awkwardness to slow things down. Still, there's enough solid adventure in the Faerie realm to keep readers on the edge of their seats.
