Deals of the Moment- August 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.

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


The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks- Rebecca Skloot

I’ve heard a lot of good things about this one, but didn’t really know much about it. It’s about a woman whose cancer cells were taken without her knowledge (for medical science) and what happened 20 years later when her family found out.

You can buy it…here (only £1.19)


Fangirl- Rainbow Rowell

My favourite Rainbow Rowell so far. Reminds me of days in the depth of Harry Potter fandom. About a fanfiction writer starting university.

You can buy it…here (only £1.19)


Water for Elephants- Sara Gruen

About an almost-vet caring for animals in a circus during the depression. A really good book. The film is decent too, but makes more of the love story

You can buy it….here (only £0.99)


The Etymologicon- Mark Forsyth

I’ve raved lots about Forsyth’s (aka Inky Fool) books about words. Easy to read and very interesting. The Etymologicon is the best, and I recommend to everyone.

Buy it…here (only £3.09)
