Hello my fellow bookworms, recently I have managed to keep myself away from those tempting book shops. However, a few lovely, new books have winged their way to be by different routes. Here are the goodies I have added to my Kindle:
Class of ’59 by John A. Heldt
First, I was contacted by the author, John A. Heldt, about his new and fourth instalment to his American Journeys series. I have previously enjoyed his novel, The Mine, so I was happy to accept a review copy of his new novel.
The Lioness and the Spellspinners by Cheryl Mahoney
Recently, I hosted the wonderful author, Cheryl Mahoney, for a guest post on her use of fairy tale references in her new novel. Also, Cheryl kindly sent me a review copy of her new novel which I am super excited about reading.
The Plague Charmer by Karen Maitland
Then whilst having a mooch on Netgalley, I spotted Karen Maitland’s new historical fiction being offered to ‘read now’ – I had heard good things about it so I snapped a copy up.
Life of the Beloved by Henri J. M. Nouwen
The King’s Concubine by Anne O’Brien
Finally, I went on Amazon to find a copy of Life of the Beloved which is to be the third read for my church’s book club. Whilst there I spotted The King’s Concubine, an older historical novel, from my favourite historical author, Anne O’Brien, at a bargain price – how could I not snap up a copy?!
Do you fancy any of these? What new book purchases have you made recently?
