Amazon has had some pretty great books for sale lately, so of course I couldn’t help but pick a few of them up and adding them to my to-read pile. They don’t follow my typical genres of choice which I’m really pleased about. Whether or not I will enjoy them is another matter – but I love reading, so how could I not enjoy these books?
First up was The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Saffer and Annie Barrows. I’ve seen a lot of good (and bad) said about this book, but it was actually recommended to me as a book club readers choice, and since I’m a huge fan of historical fiction, I decided to give it a whirl. At $1.99 it was a pretty simple choice.
Next I picked up A Clash of Honor by Morgan Rice, which was free from a daily deal. I haven’t read the other books in the series yet and I may pick those up first before moving on to this one as it is 4th in the series, but we’ll see. Maybe those too will be part of a daily deal. I can hope!
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion has been getting a lot of press lately, and it was another $1.99 deal from amazon which is a fantastic price. I really like the idea of the book, plus it’s not one of my usual genres. This year I’m really trying to branch out and discover books that I may not have otherwise read, and I think I’m off to a really good start so far.
Finally I bought When I found you by Catherine Ryan Hyde, and it was my final $1.99 purchase for the evening. I’m not exactly sure what inspired me to pick this book up other than it sounded really interesting and had gotten a few reviews that I found intriguing. None of my friends have marked it on their read lists, so I’m not really sure what to expect. That being said, once again the price was tempting in all of these instances, and I can’t wait to get started. I haven’t decided which one I want to read first yet!
