Deals of the Moment- August 2020

Every month amazon has a set of kindle monthly deals. Whenever there are deals of interest I post on here. Links are associate links but the money goes back into the blog.

So I’m going to briefly talk about the books I’ve read which are on offer, and those that I have bought myself. Why I liked them/bought them, and what they are about. End links are to the amazon page, any other links are to my reviews.

See all the books in the deals here

Truth To Power- Jess Phillips

‘Truth to Power’ is Jess Phillips’ book about inspirational women. I own it but haven’t read it yet.

Buy it for just £0.99


The Memory Tree- Linda Gillard

Another one I own but haven’t read yet. I bought it because I enjoy Linda Gillard, I don’t think I even read the description at the time. It takes part during two different time periods, one in the present day and one during WW1, there is a family secret which is unveiled

The Knife’s Edge- Stephen Westaby

This one I read some time ago but I missed posting the review over from twitter (so the link above is to a twitter book review).

It’s the second memoir by heart surgeon Stephen Westaby, his first is my favourite medical memoir. This one is very good too, more introspective than the last, but still with a decent chuck of ‘medicine is amazing’

A Spark of Light- Jodi Picoult

I’m always a Picoult fan and this is no exception. ‘A Spark of Light’ is focused around a hostage situation in a clinic where (amongst other things) abortions are carried. out. Like all Picoult it is emotive and thought provoking.

The Guilty Feminist- Deborah Frances-White

I love ‘The Guilty Feminist’ podcast, which was why I wanted to read this. It’s a bit of a feminist manifesto, interesting, and sometimes funny. The podcast is better though

The Radium Girls- Kate Moore

The Radium Girls is the historical story of the girls who used to paint watchfaces with radium, how they suffered as a result of radium poisoning, and how the companies they worked for hid the truth. It is not an easy read but important.
