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?
