Ebook deals

ebookdeals

As many of you may know, I love books and I enjoy them via multiple platforms (paperbooks, audiobooks and ebooks). So I am always on the hunt for great ebook deals pretty regularly and thought I would share the treasures I found yesterday for my Kindle.

The first book is called Where Women are Kings by Christie Watson. I had never heard of this book or author but the cover and price caught my eye so I took a look at the description:

“Elijah, seven years old, has a history of disruptive behaviour. His adoptive mother Nikki believes that she and her husband Obi are strong enough to accept his difficulties – and that her being white will not affect her ability to raise a black son.

Deborah, Elijah’s birth mother, is ever present, and her love for her son is a constant reminder for Nikki of something she’s not part of, that she’s never had.”

It sounds like an emotional ride but worth checking out for $1.99.

The second book, “The Miniaturist” by Jessie Burton has been on my wish list for some time and when I saw it for $1.99 I did a little happy dance. I have been hearing about this book all over booktube and would like to see if it lives up to the hype. This book is about:

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed…”

On a brisk autumn day in 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman arrives in Amsterdam to begin a new life as the wife of illustrious merchant trader Johannes Brandt. But her new home, while splendorous, is not welcoming. Johannes is kind yet distant, always locked in his study or at his warehouse office-leaving Nella alone with his sister, the sharp-tongued and forbidding Marin.

But Nella’s world changes when Johannes presents her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. To furnish her gift, Nella engages the services of a miniaturist-an elusive and enigmatic artist whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in eerie and unexpected ways . . .

Johannes’ gift helps Nella to pierce the closed world of the Brandt household. But as she uncovers its unusual secrets, she begins to understand-and fear-the escalating dangers that await them all. In this repressively pious society where gold is worshipped second only to God, to be different is a threat to the moral fabric of society, and not even a man as rich as Johannes is safe. Only one person seems to see the fate that awaits them. Is the miniaturist the key to their salvation . . . or the architect of their destruction?

Since my reading que is full for the remainder of the year, I will add them to my list for next.

Right now, is  a great time to find great bargains on ebooks on Amazon. So do check it out, you never know what hidden gem you will find.

Happy reading!
