Each month new Kindle deals are out and, like clockwork, each month I spend more than I wanted on ebooks. It’s just so difficult to resist when there’s a good offer. So here are the deals that caught my eye this month:
Station Eleven – Emily St. John Mandel
This book has been on my wishlist for quite some time. It got awesome reviews and I like a well-written dystopia / post-apocalyptic story.
Update: read my review here
Burnt Tongues: An Anthology of Transgressive Short Stories – Chuck Palahniuk
I haven’t read anything by Chuck Palahniuk yet. But I’m always looking for good anthologies and this one promises “boundary-breaking tales” so I’m curious.
Churchill: A Biography –Roy Jenkins
Churchill was a fascinating man and this is one hell of a biography. I think it clocks in at over a thousand pages.
The World of Jeeves – P.G. Wodehouse
I’ve been eyeing the Jeeves stories for quite some time and here I’d get a lot of them in a neat ebook.
The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow – Katherine Woodfine
Everything with clockwork in the title piques my interest and this one promises charming protagonists, dastardly crimes and iced buns.
The Hourglass Factory – Lucy Ribchester
Suffragettes, a tomboy as main character, trapeze artists and corsets. It has so many interesting aspects.
The Quest for a Moral Compass – Kenan Malik
A history of ethics, philosophy and religion with very good reviews.

The Awesome Girl’s Guide to Dating Extraordinary Men – Ernessa T. Carter
Don’t let the title fool you. This is not a weird how-to dating manual. It is a sweet romance novel about four African American women. The characters are amazing, loveable and extraordinary. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
The Beekeper’s Apprentice – Laurie R. King
I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. But it has Sherlock Holmes, a young woman, a mystery and is set in 1915. And this month, it is only 99p.
