Yes summer is over, but its the start of a new month which means that there are a new range of books available for 99p on Kindle! Here are some of our faves which are worth bagging for this great price...
On Rotation by Shirlene Obuobi
Angie has checked off all the boxes for the ‘Perfect Immigrant Daughter’: enroll in an elite medical school; snag a lawyer boyfriend, and surround herself with a gaggle of successful friends… But then she gets dumped, her best friend pulls away, and she bombs the most important exam of her medical career. Enter Ricky who makes it all seem better but there’s no way Angie is falling for someone who seems too good to be true.
Obviously we were going to read a book described as “Grey’s Anatomy meets Seven Days in June” and this didn’t disappoint!! It’s modern and fun but also informative and Shirlene Obuobi strikes this balance perfectly. Buy it for 99p here
The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman by Julietta Henderson
Norman and his best friend Jax made a plan to be the best comedy duo in the world when they turned 15, but Jax dies before their 12th birthdays so Norman, with the help of his mum and pensioner Leonard, make the journey all the way from Penzance to honour him with a tribute act at Edinburgh Fringe.
This is GORGEOUS - think “About a Boy” meets “Little Miss Sunshine.” This book is everything you want it to be; switching from the perspectives of mother and son, it will break your heart but not enough that you won’t feel all the warm and fuzzies of this story. Buy it for 99p here
Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller
Elle and Jonas grew up spending summers together in Cape Cod. Now, after all this time they have slept together whilst their families were just inside. Over the next 24 hours Elle must decide between the life she loves with her husband and children or the one that got away.
This book switches between past and present making it impossibly hard to determine where Elle’s heart lies, you’ll be kept guessing until the final page. Buy it for 99p here.
This novel follows the lives of three women; Ruby cannot even look at herself in the mirror because of her condition so is fully aware of the irony of her job photoshopping cellulite in magazine shoots. Beth, a wedding planner has scored the celebrity wedding of the decade yet she cannot focus and her mind wanders elsewhere. Lauren’s life looks perfect on Instagram but that may not be the case in real life.
It is impossible to not physically laugh out loud whilst reading this book! A modern, witty and empowering novel commenting on appearance, worth and girl power! The short chapters that switch between points of view make it pretty hard to put down too. Buy it for 99p here
On the first day of the new millennium two women living very different lives give birth. One of them leaves with a baby girl whilst the other leaves with empty arms. 17 years later the truth of that day begins to unravel.
Whilst it may seem like the premise has been done before, we guarantee you it has never been written in this way. The characters are so realistic and just lovely that the line between right and wrong becomes so blurred. As always we want to keep this spoiler free but the ending was STUNNING! Buy it for 99p here
Memphis by Tara M. Stringfellow
Hazel’s husband built their home in Memphis where he was lynched days after becoming the first black detective. Her daughters Miriam and August are now back living together in the house in Memphis since Miriam left her abusive marriage along with her daughters Mya and Joan who have their own battles to face.

Slow Fire Burning by Paula Hawkins
Laura has spent most of her life being judged. She’s seen as hot-tempered, troubled, a loner. Some even call her dangerous. Miriam knows that just because Laura is witnessed leaving the scene of a horrific murder with blood on her clothes, that doesn’t mean she’s a killer. Carla is reeling from the brutal murder of her nephew. She trusts no one: good people are capable of terrible deeds. Innocent or guilty, everyone is damaged. Some are damaged enough to kill.
Paula brings us more twists and turns and troubled characters just like Girl on the Train. Its very clever and is three books in one - you’ll have to read it to see… buy it for 99p here.
In a small, isolated town Hockey is what unites them all. So when the captain rapes the manager’s daughter the town is completely divided.
