2 Brilliant, Legal Ways To Read For Free

I just want to preface this by saying this post is not sponsored in any way, shape, or form. I just wanted to share two websites that I have completely fallen in love with that a lot of book lovers out there might not know about!

1) Riveted
(That's a link--click to sign up completely for freeee!)

The team at Simon Teen has created this website full of YA bookish content, completely free to sign up. It's blog-like and features videos and exclusive information about released and upcoming YA books, as well as hosts giveaways. You can learn about books you've never heard of or books you have heard of. Whatever totes your goat.

But of course, what you clicked on this post for is the FREE BOOKS. Every month, Riveted offers a small selection of books you can read for free!

This month:

As you can see, they have full books available, and extended excerpts available for some new releases. Thanks to Riveted, I've had the chance to read some books that I really adored, such as Morgan Matson's Since You've Been Gone (which helped me discover Morgan Matson, who is now one of my ultimate favorite authors), Jenna Evan Welch's Love and Gelato, and, recently, Margaret Rogerson's An Enchantment of Ravens.

I try to remember to check Riveted every month to see what titles they have available! I am so thankful for this website and Simon Teen!
2) Scribd

I learned about Scribd recently, thanks to a tweet from someone in the community, and it had me COMPLETELY SHOOK. Maybe I'm the last person to hear about this website, but it really changed the game for me.

Okay, disclaimer: Technically, Scribd is a monthly subscription service HOWEVER, you can begin a two-month free trial that you can cancel at any point! And upon signing up, you get your own link so that if someone signs up using your link, you get another free month! That said, I beg beg beg you, if you choose to try out Scribd (which, again, you can cancel your free trial at any point), please use MY LINK.

Now, let's get to the more info part of this.

Scribd has an entire database of ebooks and audiobooks and other stuff, like sheet music. And it's REALLY good stuff!

That's a screenshot from my account so it's all YA titles, but they have every genre! As you can see, they have new releases available as well as backlist titles.

Scribd has been incredible for me because I'm studying abroad and don't have the same access to books that I did when I lived in the U.S. so this website is PERFECT for international readers. You can also download the app on your phone and download the titles for offline use.

You can save all the titles you're interested in to a list and you don't have to worry about how long it takes you to read something. This website has such an extensive collection of titles, I'm finally getting to read a ton of books I've been wanting to read for ages, like Shadow and Bone and Simon Vs. the Homo Sapien's Agenda.

I highly recommend checking out Scribd, and not just because I want another month free (but I definitely do, so I'd really appreciate if you signed up using my link!), but because it has made me so happy since I discovered it. I've been telling everyone about it.
