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)

Deals of the Moment- March 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.

There are so many books that are/look good this month. Lots of them are feminist in nature (I guess because it’s women’s history month), I love feminist books but I know that lots of people prefer to read fiction, so I’ll put them at the end.


A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Beginning- Lemony Snicket

I didn’t read ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ when it came out, mainly because the covers made it look like a rip off of Harry Potter, but since then I’ve watched the netflix show which has proven me wrong- and made me want to read it (although I tend to find books harder to read after I’ve seen the film/show)

Buy it for just 99p



Grief is The Thing With Feathers- Max Porter 

I’ve not reviewed this one on the blog yet but it’s beautiful, sad, and a little strange. It’s about a family in which the mother/wife dies and includes a crow.

You can buy it…here (only £2.89)


The Red Tent- Anita Diamant

I’ve been wanting to read this for ages, it’s about women in the time of Jacob.

You can buy it….here (only £1.19)


The Restaurant at the End of the Universe- Douglas Adams

Second book in the very entertaining ‘Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ series. The first is only £1.89 too

You can buy it…here (only £1.19)


The Thirteenth Tale- Diane Setterfield

Great, and well known gothic tale. Well worth a read.

Buy it…here (only 99p)


Women and Power- Mary Beard

Another one I’ve been wanting to read for a while. About powerful women throughout history and how they have been treated.

Buy it…here (only £2.99)



Everywoman- Jess Phillips

A rallying call to women to stand up and speak out.

Buy it…here (only 99p)


Dear Ljeawele- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Book of suggestions on how to raise a feminist daughter, a follow on from ‘We Should All Be Feminists’

Buy it…here (only 99p)


Delusions of Gender and Testosterone Rex- Cordelia Fine

Two books about how gender is viewed and created. Delusions of Gender is more focused on girls whereas Testosterone Rex has a greater focus on boys

 

Buy ‘Delusions of Gender’ (only £1.99) and ‘Testosterone Rex’ (only £4.29)
