New Books: February & March 2019

Hello my fellow bookworms, here are the new books I have got my hands on over the last two months:

A Desperate Fortune by Susanna Kearsley

A Tapestry of Treason by Anne O’Brien

First in February, I spotted on my Amazon wish list, that the time slip romance A Desperate Fortune by, one of my favourite authors, Susanna Kearsley was down to just 99p. So I treated myself to a copy using part of the remaining balance of my gift card from Christmas. Having not long enjoyed Kearsley’s Bellewether, I look forward to reading more by her this year.

Also in February,  I was very lucky to receive, via Netgalley, a review copy of Anne O’Brien’s newest historical fiction, A Tapestry of Treason, which is about Constance of York, Lady Despenser. I have enjoyed many of O’Brien’s novels, the most recent of which was The Shadow Queen. Now I have Queen of the North and this to look forward to reading.

Council by Snorri Kristjansson

The Dragon’s Blade: The Last Guardian by Michael R. Miller

Then at the start of March, I was very lucky again, receiving, via Netgalley, a review copy of Snorri Kristjansson’s second Helga Finnsdottir book, Council. I loved the first book Kin, so I am excited to find out what happens to Helga next. In addition, the author Michael R. Miller was kind enough to send me a review copy of the final book in his Dragon’s Blade trilogy, The Last Guardian, after I enjoyed the previous two books, The Reborn King and Veiled Intentions. Can’t wait to find out how it all ends.

Love Wins by Rob Bell

Into The Blue by Robert Goddard

Searching For Sunday by Rachel Held Evans

Finally, near the end of the month, I picked up three more books from Amazon using part of the remaining balance of my gift card from Christmas. First Rob Bell’s controversial Christian non-fiction, Love Wins, which is an upcoming read for my church’s book club. Second Robert Goddard’s thriller Into The Blue, which came highly recommended by a member of my book club and was down to just 99p. Last but not least, I spotted on my wish list, that Rachel Held Evans’ highly recommended Christian non-fiction, Searching for Sunday was also reduced to just 99p. Such great bargains, I still have money leftover on my gift card.

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

  1. I enjoyed A Desperate Fortune a great deal, thus I hope you do when you get to it. I love all those Amazon deals in which one can carry a big haul and still have money left to spend on more books. 🙂

  2. A lovely book haul.
    I still have a Kearsley book for review – in fact I think it’s Bellewether – I really do need to catch up.
    Happy reading
    Lynn 😀

  3. I dhave not know that particular Robert Goddard but he is pretty reliable and I can’t think of anything I’ve read by him that wasn’t well plotted.

      1. He’s quite prolific so you have plenty of treats in store. One I can’t remember that I enjoyed was about a girl who disappeared at the Stone Circles in Avebury

  4. I really enjoyed A Desperate Fortune, so I hope you do too. I also have a copy of A Tapestry of Treason from Netgalley which sounds really interesting, especially as I know nothing at all about Constance of York.

    1. Helen, really pleased to hear you enjoyed A Desperate Fortune as I hold your opinion on Kearsley’s novels in high regard – being a big fan like me. As for A Tapestry of Treason, I hope we will both enjoy it and learn about a new historical figure. 🙂

  5. I read Searching for Sunday two years ago and while I remembered liking it overall, I had to go back and read my review for the finer points! I bet you will enjoy it and, if your group at church reads it, will find much in it for discussion.

    1. I have a feeling Kelly that it might have been you that recommended Searching for Sunday to me – I know someone did because that’s why I put it on my wish list. I am not sure if we will read it in my book club, but we might as I did pass the recommendation onto the group leader and he bought a copy too.
