Also I asked on twitter a couple of times, if anyone would be interested in book reviews and out of a selection of new topics, what would anyone be most interested in and the winner was book reviews both times! So stay tuned for book related content at least once or twice a month on my blog from now on.
- The First Fifteen Lives Of Harry August by Claire North: I have been obsessed with book youtubers recently and this book has been mentioned a lot so when it was only £4 for the hardcover edition on The Works website last week, I had to buy it!
- The Cleft by Doris Lessing: This book sounds really odd and unusual but it is a hardcover and it was only £2 which for a Nobel prize winning hardcover book is amazing!
- The Martian by Andy Weir: I bought this as it was a recommendation from Regan from Peruse Project (she's my new favourite youtuber) and she said it was really funny. It has been made into a film last year which actually didn't really interest me but I've heard nothing but great things about the book.
- The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson: This book has been on my radar for a couple of years and I think I did read a free sample chapter of it on my Kindle app ages ago but I wanted to get a physical copy as it was only £2 (and it was part of a 6 books for £10 offer - so I had to buy six books, obviously...and then some).
- The Haunted Season by G. M. Malliet: Mystery and crime books seem to be my go to recently (I've been reading The Cuckoos Calling and loving it) so I also bought this one which seems like a much lighter read and the cover is so cute.
- The Lodger by Marie Belloc Lowndes: To be honest I was attracted to this book purely because of the cover, while scrolling online; however the story sounds interesting and a bit creepy and it is a really short book.
- A Cold Day For Murder by Dana Stabenow: This book was reduced from £7.99 to only £1 on The Works and then only 75P after I found a discount code online *gotta love discount codes* so I couldn't not get it. The story does intrigue me though as it is set in Alaska and I haven't read anything set in Alaska before.
- Dead Of Winter by Lee Weeks: Yet another £2 book that was part of the 6 for £10 offer which is still going online! And also another crime related book - I know, I have a problem. If you have read any of these, let me know what you thought in the comments below.
- Stranded by Val Mcdermid: I haven't read any short stories since secondary school so I'm excited to read this collection of short stories which involve crime, murder and revenge are are described as chilling. Excited.
- Savage Magic by Lloyd Shepherd: When it comes to books, tv or film, anything with magic or mystery in it and I am instantly wanting to know more (although not cheesy magic or sci-fi). The book is set in the 1800s which is another big plus for me!
- Tymes End by B.R. Collins: This is the only book in the haul that isn't from The Works, this one is from Amazon as I have a trial of Amazon prime which is doing what it was designed for - making me spend more money. The book sound a tiny bit similar to the plot of the new film Crimson Peak which I've wanted to watch since it was released last year so this will be the next book I read.
Do you own any of these books? What books do you have on your wish list? Any recommendations of crime, mystery or magic books?
