Deals of the Moment- February 2018


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 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.

Please note prices are correct at time of publishing and may be subject to change.


Oddjobs- Heide Goody and Iain Grant

Odd jobs is the story of a government agency trying to coven up the end of the world, and everything that comes with it. Like all of Goody and Grant’s books it’s a good chuukle

Buy it for just 99p



I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman- Nora Ephron

I’ve heard this one is good, but I’d forgotten about it until I saw it on the monthly deals.

You can buy it…here (only £1.99)



Love in the Time of Cholera- Gabriel Garcia Marquez

I’ve somehow never read any Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and I really should. This one is about unrequited love

You can buy it….here (only £1.99)



The Rosie Project- Graeme Simsion

Don is looking for love, in a rather unconventional way- a questionnaire to find the perfect woman, but then he meets Rosie- who doesn’t seem like the perfect woman at all!

I loved this book.

You can buy it…here (only 99p)


Armada- Ernest Cline

Armada is the other book by the author of the very popular ‘Ready Player One’. It focuses around a boy who is a big video game player, but one day the alien ship he has been playing as really exists.

Deals of the Moment- July 2017


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 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.

Room- Emma Donoghue

Sad but beautiful book about a mother who is being held captive with her (and her captor’s) son.

You can buy it…here (only £1.39)


Alone in Berlin- Hans Fallada

Alone in Berlin has been on my wishlist so long that I couldn’t even remember what it was about, but I do remember that it was a review I read on BCF in my pre-blogging days that made me add it. So maybe I should buy it.

It’s about a house of families living in Berlin during WW2, and how one family starts a campaign of defiance against the Nazis

You can buy it…here (only £1.99)


One Hundred Years of Solitude- Gabriel Garcia Marquez

I haven’t read anything by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, probably something I should rectify. Plus this one is on The Rory List

You can buy it….here (only £1.99)


Eleanor & Park- Rainbow Rowell

I’m not a big fan of YA, but I do like Rainbow Rowell, I think it’s because she writes about ‘real’ characters, people like me. Eleanor & Park is a love story with a difference, two teenagers, not particularly popular or stereotypically attractive, but real.

Buy it…here (only £0.99)


Number 11- Jonathan Coe

I really enjoy reading Jonathon Coe. This one is about the connections between the public and private worlds

Buy it…here (only £1.99)
