Just an ultra-quick post to highlight some of the 'gems' in the 12 Days of Kindle sale (because I thought I'd better get this done before the sale actually ends). I know loads of people got Kindles for Christmas so if you're looking for cheap ebooks, here are some ideas. I will update this post if anything amazing gets added to the sale within the next few days!
Books I have actually read
Hawthorn & Child by Keith Ridgway - £1.49: If there is one book you buy in the sale, BUY THIS!
The House at Midnight by Lucie Whitehouse - £1.09: ...OR THIS. One of my favourite books, absolutely unputdownable
Company of Liars by Karen Maitland - 99p: For historical fiction fans, a medieval mystery with great characters
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey - £1.49: Lovely, magical, fairytale-like story, perfect for winter
Isabel's Skin by Peter Benson - £1.39: Unusual spooky mystery for those who enjoy gothic fiction
Snowdrops by A.D. Miller - 99p: Yes, okay, I didn't actually like this at all, but lots of others loved it and it was shortlisted for the Booker, so you might want to give it a go anyway if you like the sound of the themes!
Kommandant's Girl by Pam Jenoff - 99p: Slightly corny but enjoyable WWII spy story slash romance
Cold Earth by Sarah Moss - 99p: Intriguing debut about a group who become stranded in Greenland during a global pandemic
Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding - 99p: Look, I don't care what anyone thinks, this is hilarious and if you haven't read it you should
Jon Ronson's Adventures with Extraordinary People - £1.89: Good value compilation of three books, and Ronson's writing is always entertaining
Also, I don't actually think this is in the sale but I just noticed it is SEVENTY-FOUR PENCE - The Earthquake Bird by Susanna Jones. Not as good as 2012's superb When Nights Were Cold, but it's an excellent introduction to an author I love and is absolutely definitely worth that price.

The White Lie by Andrea Gillies - £1.29
