Deals of the Moment- December 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.


Admissions: A Life in Brain Surgery- Henry Marsh

I will definitely be buying this if I don’t get it as a Christmas present. I loved Henry Marsh’s first biography of his life as a brain surgeon (Do No Harm)

Buy it for just £0.99



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

I remember reading a really positive review of this book which described it as being funny and feminist. It looks like an entertaining but thoughtful read.

You can buy it…here (only £0.99)


Shift- Hugh Howey

Shift is the second book in the Wool trilogy. (preceded by Wool, and continued in Dust.) A series set in a dystopian future where the world is uninhabitable, except for by the residents in a silo. It’s very good

Buy here (only £1.99) 


Girl Up- Laura Bates

Girl Up is about the things women are told every day, and shouldn’t be.

You can buy it…here (only £0.99)


Delusions of Gender- Cordelia Fine

Delusions of Gender is about how girls and boys are treated differently, and how this creates differences for how they behave. It’s a real eye-openner

Buy it…here (only £3.09)

You can also buy Testosterone Rex from the same writer, which is all about toxic masculinity (and at the same price!)



What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape- Sohaila Abdulali

I reviewed this just last week (link above). It’s about the stories of different rape victims, but it goes beyond their rapes

Buy it…here (only £0.99)


In Shock: How Nearly Dying Made Me a Better Intensive Care Doctor- Rana Awdish

Similar to ‘When Breath Becomes Air’ Awdish’s book is about what it’s like to be a patient when you’re a doctor, plus it’s about how that changed what type of a doctor she is. I love doctor memoirs so will happily add this to my collection

Buy it…here (only £1.99)
