New Books: March 2017

Hello my fellow bookworms, during March these are the goodies I added to my Kindle and bookshelf:

Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster

The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley

First, I popped over to Amazon to order a copy of Celebration of Discipline for my church’s book club. Whilst there I spotted that The Firebird, off my wish list, was being offered for a good price, and together I could have free postage and packaging…so obviously I had to order both!

The Shadow Queen by Anne O’Brien

The Mistress of Blackstairs by Catherine Curzon

Dunstan by Conn Iggulden

Then over the month, I was very lucky to receive these three historical fictions via Netgalley. I have previously enjoyed novels by Anne O’Brien, while Catherine Curzon and Conn Iggulden are new-to-me authors; although I have heard a lot of good stuff about Iggulden.

Freefall by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams

Finally, during a mooch around my favourite charity book shops, I snapped up a copy of this; which is book three in Gordon and Williams’ bestselling Tunnels series. I have previously really enjoyed reading the majority of this series, but I borrowed the books so I am now trying to build my own collection. Annoyingly, though I haven’t found book two yet.

Do you fancy any of these? What new books did you get in March?

  1. I’m quite keen to read the Shadow Queen, I’ll be interested to see what you think. I’m in a slump now I’ve read all of the darker shade of Magic series. Maybe a need a new fantasy fix! The Firebird sounds good too! Happy reading!

    1. Hello Faye, thank you for stopping by and commenting 🙂 I am sorry to hear you are in a slump now – I hope you find your new fantasy fix to sort that out! Happy reading to you too 😀

  2. I like the look of the Iggulden book and saw it on NG. I was so tempted! But, I’m trying to behave at the moment, reduce my review copies and be a bit more realistic about it – still *sobs*
    Lynn 😀

  3. The Firebird is one of my favourites so far by Susanna Kearsley – I hope you enjoy it! I’ll be interested to know what The Mistress of Blackstairs is like. I noticed it on Netgalley but didn’t request it.

    1. Thank you Helen – it is largely down to your praise of The Firebird that made me so keen to get my hands on a copy 🙂 As for The Mistress of Blackstairs, I know little to nothing about it or the author, but I couldn’t resist a historical mystery!

  4. I should keep a list of books bought but I forget to. I went on a bit of a buying spree in March. I can only blame to slow arrival of spring here. I do remember I bought both of Rachel Kusk’s recent novels, Outline and Transit, as well as a biography of James Baldwin. Enjoy your reading!

  5. I’m interested to hear what you think of the Iggulden. I’m often tempted by his books, but I get the impression they tend to be pretty gory, sword and battle stuff. I’m hoping you’ll convince me I’ve got the wrong end of the stick!
