SATURDAY UPDATE!!! Some of the items below are no longer on Black Friday Sale (or now sold out because of limited quantities), but some are still “Black Friday-priced” YAY!! And if I find a few more that look great today, I’ll add them in.
HAPPY BLACK FRIDAY EVERYONE! I hope your Thanksgiving was awesome, peaceful, and loving, and I hope you all had the BEST sleep ever from the turkey-coma. LOL!!! And we’re gonna have one all weekend, ’cause the leftovers are even better the next few days!!
Okay… so who braved the crazy midnight Black Friday deals (and who’s still in them as we speak?). Does anyone have a crazy story to tell (past or present)? Did you find what you were looking for? Did you find something SO COOL that you didn’t even know you were looking for? I’m dying to hear the stories. List your goodies!!
I only ever braved one night of the early Black Friday shopping and had a blast (even though I was pretty scared). LOL!! Luckily we were only going with an open-mind, just to “see” what it was like, and to see if we could stumble on a few unexpected deals. YIKES!!! It was an incredible frenzy to watch, and there were some loud voices and bustling for sure, but we steered clear, stood back, and even found some great deals without a fight! But that was the one and only time, and now I just live vicariously through you brave souls.
BUT!!! This is the next best thing. In fact, some would even consider THESE BLACK FRIDAY DEALS deals as HUGE and fun as the ones out there (just… much safer). Mind you, you still have to act fast ’cause the deals are in limited quantities, and limited time frames.
SO MY GOAL will be to keep this page updates ALL DAY with the new Black Friday finds as they come in and out of sale.
So let’s start!
BLACK FRIDAY DEALS!! COOL BOOK-LOVER’S STUFF (and stuff book lover’s love!)
- All-New Fire HD 8 Tablet, 8″ HD Display, Wi-Fi, 16 GB – Includes Special Offers, Black <— AWESOME SALE
- Fire Tablet, 7″ Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB – Includes Special Offers, Black <— AWESOME SALE on these today (there are 4 colors to choose from!!)
- Hoover FH50150 Carpet Basics Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Cleaner <— MEGA MEGA SATURDAY DEAL!!!!!! This has GOT to be a Deal of the Day or something. Okay… definitely not book related, but to me, this deal, if you need one, CAN’T BE MISSED, so I had to let you know!!! I have this exact one I got about 6 months back (when it was on sale), and now it’s even cheaper!!! THIS DEAL!!! THIS ONE is discounted way MORE (Black Friday weekend sale?) It works great, it’s light weight, and I love mine. So easy to use. Almost 7000 AWESOME reviews, just to give you an idea.
Maryse: I know it… I thought MY deal was awesome (I paid over $100, and I thought THAT was a steal. I pounced on it). But THIS? WHOA. And I had been researching carpet cleaners and reviews for a week or two before mine went on sale and THAT was the one at the top of my carpet cleaner wish list. It was fate.. LOL!
- All-New Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote | Streaming Media Player <— I LOVE IT!!! I have one on a TV that isn’t “smart” and I can access all of my awesome TV and shows on it. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime etc… it’s on Black Friday Sale!!!!
Sherry: So with this fire stick, if u hook it up to your tv, do u still have to pay for tv programming?? Do u only pay for the stick once?
Maryse: You only pay for the stick once, and you pay for whatever subscriptions you want to have monthly. Like Netflix, or Hulu, or having Amazon Prime (which is a yearly cost). The stick just allows all of these programs to be used with your non-smart TV, so you can watch the cool stuff on it, anyway. It has all the apps loaded on.
- Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker, 6Qt/1000W <— WHOA. INSTANT POT ALERT!! This isn’t a book thing, but I LOVE COOKING!!!! And one of my friends (who’s an avid reader like us!!) has recently posted on one of my cooking updates that I could have cooked my chicken broth in half an hour, had I used one of these. P.S. Here’s a cookbook with tons of great reviews to go with it ➔ Instant Pot® Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook: Easy Recipes for Fast & Healthy Meals
Samantha: “Get an Instant Pot. You’ll have the same delicious chicken stock in 30 mins.” <— GASP!!! She LOVES hers and is always talking about it, and showing stuff that she’s cooked, so it seems prettttttty awesome.
Creath: I love it and made stock quickly yesterday with turkey bones. Get it.
Christine: We love ours! Google “Kailua pig recipe Insta-pot”. Yummy paleo meal.
Kimberly: Thanks SO MUCH for posting this, as that exact pot is on my Christmas list. At that price, I went ahead and bought it for myself!! lol
MichelleS: Oh… and I LOVE love love my pressure cooker. I make soup, dog food, pot roast, shredded chicken for tacos… and tons more. It’s so fast. Makes best hard boiled eggs ever. And corn on the cob. Three of my friends bought one because I rave about it so much. Pinterest is full of recipes. You should get one!
- Ring Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbell <— WIFI VIDEO DOORBELL ALERT!!! I WANT THIS (and it was just super-reduced in price!!) Speaking of cool house stuff, how COOL is this???? I didn’t even know these existed, and from a few comments circulating on my Facebook feed, it works GREAT (unless the person is facing away, but how often does that happen)? YAY!!! I WANT THIS!!! YOU CAN SEE WHO IT IS AND YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO BE HOME. YOU CAN EVEN TALK TO WHOEVER IS AT YOUR DOOR!!!!
Traci: I love mine.
Jennifer: Just bought it and one of the cameras for the back door for $***
- Nest Learning Thermostat, 3rd Generation, Works with Amazon Alexa <— I WANT THIS!!!!!! Black Friday Sale, awesome price, and I have Alexa, too!!!! Plus I think you can control it from your phone and everything. Yeah. !!!
- Masterbuilt Butterball Electric Turkey Fryer 10L Analog w/Timer, 10 L <— HOLY MOLY this one is more than half off today! And yes, we missed it for our Thanksgiving feast, but there are plenty that will be turkey-ing it up for Christmas, so this might just be right on time!
- Samsonite Two-Piece Spinner Suitcase Sets <— This is awesome for us travellers (especially those of us that frequent Book signings all over the place)… these are on Deal of the Day sale and I have one Samsonite roller suitcase (the carry-on size that my dad bought it for me and if I can remember correctly, mine was almost $200 at that time) that I’ve had for years and I LOVE IT!!! Mine looks like the first one…
- Sennheiser HD 598 Cs Closed Back Headphone <— FOR THE AUDIOBOOK LOVERS!!! And music too, while we’re at it. Or just watching Netflix in bed (marathon watching *snort*) without disturbing our loved ones. Not wireless, no but this is an awesome brand, and they look super-comfortable.
- Bluedio Turbine T2s WIRELESS BLUETOOTH HEADPHONES with Mic, 57mm Drivers/Rotary Folding (Black) <— MORE HEADPHONES and these are WIRELESS. Over 60% off today (and an AMAZING price), and maybe not the quality of “Sennheiser” but the reviews are good, and they come in cool colors. Would do a great job while listening to audiobooks or music while moving around the house.
- HARRY POTTER COMPLETE MOVIE COLLECTION <— And of course I have no doubt that the biggest Harry Potter fans here already have this, but in case you didn’t (or know somebody who loves the series but doesn’t own this)!
- Amazon Echo – Black <— MY BELOVED ECHO IS ON BLACK FRIDAY SALE!!! This is the brand new (not refurbished) one. I have and use mine DAILY! I especially love to use her to read one of my Kindle ebooks to me when I have other stuff to do (and yes… EBOOKS not audiobook, although she’ll play those too). And when you have her stop reading, and pick your book back up, you can just start reading right where she left off. IT IS SO SMART!!! Also, I have her play my music lists, or even Amazon’s top music lists, and she’s just plain awesome. I call her a “she” ’cause her name is “Alexa” in the system.
Susan: it will read to me? omg I want one, now. My sister usually reads to me and I think needs a day off or two. lol
Renee: Oh my I just asked Alexis to read a book from my kindle and she did. So awesome. Now I can exercise or clean and still be able to read a book. Love it.
- All-New Echo Dot (2nd Generation) – Black <— ECHO’S ADORABLE LITTLE SISTER! She’s also on Black Friday sale.
Carol: Agree!! I have the Echo Dot. It does all the same stuff her grown up sister does but is cheaper. She has a speaker but it probably isn’t as good as Echo. So I link with a Bluetooth speaker. Love it …Does it all for $**. Absolutely love it.
BARGAIN FINDS & READER RECOMMENDATIONS (NOTE: some are bargain priced when I added them, but prices can change on Amazon, so make sure to check before you finalize your order. Sales listed are for Amazon U.S., however some of the Amazon UK links also reflect the sale!):

This was the one that was on Wattpad, but she has since released it on Amazon and for ONE DAY ONLY it’s on super-bargain sale. “After finding herself stuck in a relationship with the dangerous and morally corrupt Asa Jackson, Sloan will do whatever it takes to get by until she’s able to find a way out. Nothing will get in her way. Nothing except Carter…” I am SO reading this one tonight!!!) !!!! *squeeeeee meeeeeeee!!!*
Pia: Even though I read Too Late on Wattpad, I just ordered a signed copy. One of her best books as a Christmas gift for my self. I will gladly pay 25$ in shipping fee ( to Denmark)

I don’t submit and I don’t surrender. Until I meet him. This beautiful artist’s tattoo now covers the scar of the worst mistake of my life…”

- The Protector: A sexy, angsty, all-the-feels romance with a hot alpha hero by Jodi Ellen Malpas <— HE’S HER HIRED BODYGUARD and “He thinks he knows her type: beautiful and spoiled, with her father’s bank balance to fund her lifestyle. But he soon discovers the real Camille–warm, compassionate, determined to be independent and happy after struggling with past mistakes. Now, his duty to protect her turns into something deeper than a well-paid job, no matter how hard he fights it.” (it’s super-bargain-priced today!!)
- The Will (The Magdalene Series Book 1) by Kristen Ashley <— KRISTEN ASHLEY ROMANCE ANGST ALERT!!! I loved this one, and it’s super-bargain priced today!!! Two strangers thrown together when one woman dies and includes them in her will. P.S. Here’s my review!!
- Deborah Bladon <— ALL OF HER BOOKS (excluding only one!!) and DG & Lauren found us this HUGE deal!!
Maryse! Black Friday sale on all Deborah Bladon books including Bundle Series…70% off which makes them all .99 cents! Excluding her new release of course. … for a angst, cliffhanger 3 book series I would recommend Deborah Bladon books. I REFUSE to read any of her books until all in the series is live. Bladon knows how to write a gasping cliffhanger!
Lauren: Happy Thanksgiving!!!! FYI….all of Deborah Bladon’s books & series bundles are $.** today!
Janet: Deborah Bladon’s ‘TRACE’, in three parts, is now all released, and is to be recommended. Maryse, I would love to see you do a reading order for Bladon’s books -as her stories are great at interweaving couples and families, and I’ve definitely got a couple out of sync. You mention Vain and Ruin, but there are a number of others that cross over with characters… Thanks, as ever, for all your great recommendations!
- The Cellar by Natasha Preston <— PSYCH THRILLER SUPER-BARGAIN!! THREE GIRLS KIDNAPPED & KEPT IN A CELLAR ALERT! “For months Summer is trapped in a cellar with the man who took her—and three other girls: Rose, Poppy, and Violet. His perfect, pure flowers. His family. But flowers can’t survive long cut off from the sun, and time is running out…”
- A Discovery of Witches: A Novel (All Souls Trilogy, Book 1) by Deborah Harkness <— PARANORMAL AWESOME START TO THIS SERIES! I read this one a few years ago and it was good (and I know readers here LOVE IT). Here’s my review.
Theresa: Beautifully told, incredibly detailed, and rich in history. Matthew Clairmont is one yummy vampire!
- I Wrote This For You by Iain Thomas <— THIS ONE SOUNDS HEARTBREAKING AND POIGNANT AND MOVING… and it’s not even a piece of fiction. It’s words, photos, meant for all of us to take in as we need them. “…each chapter of I Wrote This For You focuses on a different facet of life, love, loss, beginnings and endings…” I feel like I want this.
“I need you to understand something. I wrote this for you. I wrote this for you and only you. Everyone else who reads it, doesn’t get it.”
- A Promise of Fire (The Kingmaker Chronicles Book 1) by Amanda Bouchet <— FANTASY ROMANCE THAT SOME SAY HAS A “GOLDEN DYNASTY” FEEL!!! And it’s super-bargain priced right now.
Michelle: Finally read A Promise of Fire and LOVED it! Can’t wait for the next one!
Andrea: A Promise of Fire is the best book I’ve read lately. I enjoyed it so much.
MichelleS: I am currently reading A Promise of Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles Book 1) and loving it. She is a great heroine. Strong. Super snarky. A total bad @$$. It is Golden Dynasty meets Percy Jackson meets Throne of Glass. Seriously. She’s abducted by a warlord (woo hoo) from the traveling circus where she’s been hiding for years because of her crazy powers. The royals want her because of the powers (Kingmaker) and this warlord is no different. But she is not coming along easily. There are dragons and greek gods and there’s magic. And hanky panky! Did I mention the hanky panky? The slow burn is just what I needed. She’s not having it but he keeps trying anyway.
