UK MONTHLY KINDLE DEALS | OCTOBER 2020

Good Afternoon Bookish Folk!

We have finally crawled into October, its autumn and time to find all the good books, sit by the fire in a fluffy jumper with a mug of something hot and READ!

So, to help all you amazing bookish folk out, or at least the UK SFF book loving folk, I have listed below some of the amazing deals floating around Amazon this month.

I’m splitting the deals up today to make it a little easier, we will have ‘FIRST IN A SERIES‘, ‘books from a series‘, ‘THE COMPLETE SERIES‘ and ‘STANDALONE BOOKS.

STANDALONE BOOKS’ single books that stand proud on there own.

Obviously ‘FIRST IN A SERIES‘ is pretty self explanatory, these will be the books that are the first instalments of a series.

BOOKS FROM A SERIES’ these will be any other books that belong to a series, beat book 2, 5 or bloody 11 depending how beastly the series is!

THE COMPLETE SERIES‘ if all the book in the series are on sale.

I loved focusing on the self-published gems of the bookish world this month, even if I didn’t read as much as I wanted because I was in a slump ( I loved all I was reading but generally struggled to find the time to read😩😭) I still managed to get some Self-published inspired posts out…

I hosted two giveaways featuring ‘Voice of War’ by the amazing Zack Argyle and ‘The Riven Realm’ by the talented Deck Matthews.

Order Voice of War: Amazon UK / Amazon USA | Order The Riven Realm: Amazon UK / Amazon USA

UK MONTHLY KINDLE DEALS | SEPTEMBER 2020

Hello Everyone!

It’s the back end of September now and it is coming up to pay day for some, so I thought I would do a quick post with some of the cool Kindle Deals going on Amazon at the minute so you can grab them before the October deals roll out.

I usually do this at the start of the month on My Twitter page but with how much us book folk tweet unless it is pinned it is sooo easy to get lost, so I’m opting to do it on my blog this time around.

All the links on this page are just links, they are not affiliated, I’m just being super nice and putting them all in one place for you all.

To the deals…

The books in this list will predominantly be Fantasy or SCI-FI but if something cool pops up…well, I would be rude not to include it.

Hero In The Shadows by David Gemell

Now, Amazon says this is book 3 of the Drenai Saga but Goodreads says it is book 9. Sooo 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

DEEPLIGHT by Frances Hardinge

This book was one of my ‘Recommended For You’ books on Amazon. It isn’t an author I know or a book title I have heard but the cover made me click, and then the blurb sounded pretty cool but this…”But with the heart, Jelt gradually and eerily transforms. How long should Hark stay loyal to his friend when he’s becoming a monster” has me the most intrigued.

Thank you for checking out my new purchase. What have you bought this month on Kindle?


JULY SPENDING SPREE…

I went a little crazy this month but with discounts, a super savy bargain hunting me and a nice staff discount I managed to get me some SERIOUS goodies and it didn’t cost all that much!

Some of these are books I have read, and some are hardcovers I don’t want to miss out on to complete a series, especially since they are pretty damned limited sometimes.

HARDCOVERS:

KINDLE:

So these are all a part of the Kindle Deals and not one cost more than £1.00. Which is amazing. Some of these I had on my TBR and some of them just caught my eye, and after some Goodreads shopping I couldn’t resist! I mean look at the cover of Godblind! Well, all of them to be honest.

KINDLE UNLIMITED:

I am blaming David S and Traveling Cloak for these two!

PAPERBACKS:

I am so excited for ‘Old Man’s War’ it got a lot of love in a previous thread I did asking the book community for SCI-FI Recommendations (whole thread).


What’s New on My Shelves?

We all know I have a problem with buying books, well Twitter folks know, so it made sense for me to maybe tell you all in a blog post what’s new to my shelves. No, just me?

Ach, who cares, Im still going to post it 😀

This is such a long overdue book purchase for me as I have an emotional love for this series. My dad used to read Eragon to me when I was a kid so it has some feels with it. Though, that was so long ago I class myself as having not read these books. I watched the movie, though. Which I’m pretty sure flopped, so that doesn’t say much about my taste in films because I kind of liked it.

Well, anyway so I went and bought the first three books of The Inheritance Cycle, don’t shoot me, I know there are four but these books are so dang hard to get a hold of, hardback even more so. I found these gems on eBay for a really good price, I think they were something around £12.00. They are second hand but they are in really good shape! They only have tiny shows of wear and tear but I’m pretty sure they haven’t been read, I mean look at those pictures they look NEW. I was so surprised. The box however, well that was a totally different story. I opened the package and all four side just collapsed. Honestly. It is a good job I had no intention of keeping them in the box.

Im really hoping I come across a copy of Inheritance in hardback that isn’t too pricey or too damaged (if it is second hand) pretty soon then I will have the complete trilogy and I can read them.

I love these kinds of books, they are such beautiful creations, and being an older book the covers have a matte feel and look to them, which I really like. I think newer books have a shinier finish to them.

AND. Maps people. MAPS. I love maps. I’m that person that draws her own on crazy map making sites, and believe me I have whole freaking worlds imagined. So when I see one map at the front of a book I get excited. Give me two, well I might just rate you five stars for that, my friend!

Eragon:

One boy…
One dragon…
A world of adventure.

When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon soon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

Overnight his simple life is shattered, and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic, and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds.

Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands.

Eldest:

Darkness falls…despair abounds…evil reigns…Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider. Ages 12+.

Darkness falls…despair abounds…evil reigns…

Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider: magic and swordsmanship. Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems. Before long, Eragon doesn’t know whom he can trust.

Meanwhile, his cousin Roran must fight a new battle–one that might put Eragon in even graver danger.

Will the king’s dark hand strangle all resistance? Eragon may not escape with even his life. . . . 

Brisingr:

(Ohhhh, I legit nearly spelt that with an ‘e’)

Oaths sworn… loyalties tested… forces collide.

It’s been only months since Eragon first uttered “brisingr”, an ancient language term for fire. Since then, he’s not only learned to create magic with words — he’s been challenged to his very core. Following the colossal battle against the Empires warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still, there is more adventure at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.

First is Eragon’s oath to his cousin, Roran: to help rescue Roran’s beloved from King Galbatorix’s clutches. But Eragon owes his loyalty to others, too. The Varden are in desperate need of his talents and strength — as are the elves and dwarves. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner, Eragon must make choices — choices that will take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.

Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king?
