New Books: April 2017

Hello my fellow bookworms, I have to confess to something of a splurge this month adding all these goodies to my Kindle and bookshelf:

Fingers in the Sparkle Jar by Chris Packham

Assassination at Bayou Sauvage by D.J. Donaldson

Being a fan of Chris Packham and after hearing such wonderful things about his memoir Fingers in the Sparkle Jar, I was thrilled my request was approved on Netgalley. Also through Netgalley, I was pleased to receive a copy of Assassination at Bayou Sauvage, from Donaldson’s Broussard & Franklyn crime series, after I loved Blood on the Bayou.

The Phantom Tree by Nicola Cornick

The Crystal Cave

The Hollow Hills

The Last Enchantment

by Mary Stewart

The real splurge happened on Amazon.co.uk, when I discovered that all of Mary Stewart’s Merlin trilogy, which were on my wish list, and Cornick’s dual time period novel were all at a discounted price for Kindle. I still have credit on a voucher I got for my birthday which meant I just had to get them all!

The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley

The Murder of Mary Russell by Laurie R. King

Cold Fire by Dean Koontz

Then recently I had a good mooch in The Works and found these in the 3 for £5 deal. The Rose Garden is my favourite of Kearsley’s wonderful novels, good to have a physical copy now, and The Murder of Mary Russell is one of the newer instalments in the Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes series, which I must get back to reading. While I picked up Cold Fire with my dad in mind, but I will probably read it myself too after enjoying Koontz’s Innocence.

Do you fancy any of these? What new books have you got this month?

  1. Enjoy your new books. Surely, no one can resist those kindle book discounts – I love them and one click is so easy – too easy to be honest.
    Lynn 😀

  2. I find it hard to resist the Kindle discounts too! i haven’t read anything by Dean Koontz so I’m interested to see if you like Cold Fire. I’ve often been tempted to try one of his books. I loved the Merlin books – hope you do too. And Fingers in the Sparkle Jar is unlike any other memoir I’ve ever read. I loved it.

    1. Margaret, it is very comforting to hear I am not the only one lured in by Kindle discounts 😛 Also, yours was one of two wonderful reviews I read that made me what to Fingers in the Sparkle Jar so much! I am looking forward to reading all of these 🙂

  3. Kindle cheapies are second only to NetGalley for destroying my willpower, but I think spending vouchers doesn’t count! I mean, it’d be rude not to… 😉

  4. I’ve just received a copy of The Proud Sinner by Priscilla Royal as recommended by Sharon K Penman. I’ve never read any of Royal’s books, so it is my ‘carrot’ for when I finish my draft of my WIP (needs to be within a week or so…)

    1. Margaret, I haven’t heard of The Proud Sinner by Priscilla Royal, however I just looked it up and it sounds really good. I hope you finish your draft soon so 1. you can read it soon and 2. selfishly I am closer to getting a new book from you 😀
