Deals of the Moment- March 2019


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.


Where My Heart Used to Beat- Sebastian Faulks

I’m a tentative fan of Sebastian Faulks. I have loved some of his books but am a little bit off buying this one because I haven’t found the same pleasure in reading the last few of his that I have read. I will probably end up buying this one before the month is out though.

This one is a doctor looking back over his life which spanned the twentieth century. It includes the Western Front, and I have always found that Faulks writes especially well about the war.

Buy it for just £1.99



Captain Correlli’s Mandolin- Louis de Berneieres

Wool- Hugh Howey

The first (and best) in the Wool trilogy (continued with Shift and Dust).

The only survivors in a toxic world live in a silo. They’re safe, but is everything as it seems?

Inside the O’Briens- Lisa Genova

A city cop is diagnosed with Huntington’s disease, how will it affect him and his family?

I always like Genova’s books because they have real medicine behind them but also engaging stories and characters.

Curry Easy- Madhur Jaffrey

I’m mainly including this one because I want opinions. I want a curry cookbook, and my parents main cookbook of the type is by Madhur Jaffrey, so I think she’s a good writer to go for.

The thing is I can’t see it being easy to use a cookbook on a kindle (I have a paperwhite) because you can’t really flick through a book on one. Has anyone used a kindle cookbook? What are your experiences?
