The kindle deals for October are out and here are the ones that caught my eye this month:
Malazan Book of the Fallen – Steven Erikson
The Assassin’s Blade – Sarah J. Maas
I enjoy the Throne of Glass books. They’re quick and fun to read.
The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern
This one has been on my wishlist for a long time. I’m excited to finally start it.
Carte Blanche – Jeffery Deaver
This is a Bond novel that is recommended for those who like Daniel Craig’s Bond
Birdy – Jess Vallance
The cover was the first thing that caught my eye and the story sounds interesting as well.
Geisha of Gion – Mineko Iwasaki
I wasn’t a fan of the novel Geisha. The story was sort of interesting, the writing on the other hand really, really boring. But I’m curious as to the autobiography of someone who lived it.
Everything I Never Told You – Celeste Ng
This one sounds like an interesting story. It’s about a family trying to cope with the death of their daughter.
First Lady – Sonia Purnell
Everyone knows Winston Churchill, but his wife, Clementine Churchill, isn’t on everyone’s radar. This book tells the story of her life.
Already Own & Recommend
The Bone Season – Samantha Shannon
This book has a very interesting, if slightly complicated magic system. I really enjoyed the worldbuilding and story. Read my review here
Nicholas & Alexandra – Robert K. Massie
Robert K. Massie writes amazing biographies. His language is highly atmospheric and he manages to bring the past to live. In Nicholas and Alexandra he tells the tragic story of the last tsar of Russia and his family.
The Sea Sisters – Lucy Clarke
The Sea Sisters was a beautiful, sad story that I couldn’t put down. After her sister’s suicide, Katie travels the route she travelled, intent on finding out what truly happened and getting closer to her on the way.
