What's on my Kindle - Holiday ReadsThursday, October 20, 2016
When I bought my Kindle I was hoping to use it a lot more than I do. I can't get away from the love of paper books. I keep buying them and a find them easier to read.
The Kindle has many benefits in that it's much lighter and easier to carry round than the paperbacks I read. It also means I have no excuse not to finish a book, as if I haven't got enough pages left to read there and back from work I tend to give on book only to pick them up much later.
This also come in handy for holiday. I remember a few years ago stuffing 12 books in 2 cases and having to leave some clothes behind!
The current books are a real mix of genres and some I have read but my kindle won't connect to my home wifi (not sure why) so I can't remove them.
While I was looking for books on Holiday I signed up for Kindle unlimited which means you can borrow up to 10 books at a time for £7.99 a month (30 Free Trial First).
It seems to be £1.99 books are the ones you can borrow but as I'm happy to read almost anything this suits me.
I'm working my way through the Sweet Valley High series which are on the unlimited list.
Crossing Places by Elly Griffith was an interesting read and I bought the serialised Wildflower Bay by Racheal Lucas. I really enjoyed this but wish I'd waited and bought the full book.
The Hope That Kills by ED James was a free book for having Amazon Prime, it's a psychological thriller which sounds like it will be a little scary but I'm hoping it will be good.
I'm half way through A Song For Issy Bradley and being honest I'm not enjoying it. I'm finding it a hard read, the subject matter and I feel apprehensive as I read it. I'm not sure if that is the sign of a good book or not and I keep putting it down. It's set in North West England and centres around a Mormon family who have lost a child and it's the story of grief and how her family are coping. I'm not coping well with it. I'm determined to finish it but I'm not sure I'm tough enough for it.
The other books are a mix of cheap 99p books and free amazon / kindle unlimited books.
I'm always on the look out for new books to read so let me know some of your recommendations
