Four good Kindle deals have caught my eye this week ...
The first book, well, if you haven’t seen this on the social media networks this week you MUST have had your eyes shut!
Before I Go To Sleep by SJ Watson
Winner of the Galaxy National Book Awards 2011 in the Crime and Thriller category, it’s also a pick on Richard & Judy’s spring book club, plus the TV Book club (4). Tesco Books blog are also holding a Q & A session with the author Before the social media frenzy, this book had already caught my eye so imagine my delight when after watching the Kindle price I saw it drop to £2.70 (still correct at the time of this post). Of course I brought it 🙂
The next book that caught my eye was on Lins Healy’s blog ‘The Littlereader Library’.
A LIFETIME BURNING by Linda Gillard
Lins has a review, an author interview and a giveaway (closes 31st January). Lins’ review is amazing – she has given it 5/5.
This is how she sums it up “It’s an absorbing, brave and unforgettable book, from a talented writer. The dialogue flows easily; the characters are so well drawn that they leap from the page; they are loved, rejected, damaged, hopeful, damned and loved again, and they grow and change through the timescale covered in the novel. As a reader it makes you think, question and ponder, and though you may not like some of the characters and their actions, they are nevertheless compelling. A thoroughly riveting read. “
Go and have a read! At the time of this post, the Kindle copy is £0.88.
The Dress by Sophie Nicholls
Meet Ella and her mother Fabbia Moreno who arrive in York, one cold January day, to set up their vintage dress shop.
The flamboyant Fabbia wants to sell beautiful dresses to nice people and move on from her difficult past. Ella just wants to fit in. But not everyone is on their side.
Will Fabbia overcome the prejudices she encounters? What’s the dark secret she’s hiding? And do the silk linings and concealed seams of her dresses contain real spells or is this all just ‘everyday magic’?
Among the leopard-print shoes, tea-gowns and costume jewellery in Fabbia’s shop are many different stories – and the story of one particular dress.
This is a full-length novel for lovers of vintage and readers of contemporary romance/fantasy.
I downloaded it and author Talli Roland gave it 5 stars on Goodreads
My final book (which is actually two!) …
I had already reviewed Raven but it caught my eye because it’s free on Kindle and the second in the trilogy is reasonably priced! AND the second DECEMBER MOON was one of my top 10 fiction reads for 2011. December Moon is priced at £0.77 at the time of this post.
Raven (The Raven Saga) by Suzy Turner

Her whole life had been based on a lie. Lilly had grown up in a loveless home with a father who she had barely ever seen and a mother who was… well, not very motherly.
After they mysteriously disappear without a trace, Lilly is sent to Canada where she finds a whole new way of life. A life filled with love and people who care for her. But that’s not all she discovers, Lilly also finds out that she isn’t who, or what, she thinks she is.

Raven is a fantasy novel for children and young adults set in the beautiful province of British Columbia.
December Moon (The Raven Saga) by Suzy Turner
