Book Deals for August 5th

BookBub strikes again with the great deals! Really truly love their email format and appreciate the images and little summaries they offer. BookRiot’s daily email for book deals has a greater list, but the format really leaves to be desired. Some of us definitely judge books by their cover and therefore require little images of the book covers! And then some of us only recognize books by their covers. 

In today’s book deals I got: 

Happiness, Like Water

  •  I’ve been on a reading kick that’s been focused on the African experience and this book is perfect to continue this trend! Currently reading “Spectacle: The Astonishing Life of Ota Benga” which highlights an often forgotten aspect of imperialism and also dives into the atrocious situation that was the Congo when the Beligiums went to ransack it. 

Six of Crows

  • I am not sure how I feel about this book but I’ve seen the cover a multitude of times in book shops and it’s popped up in a bunch of other places as well. We shall see! 

Fledgling

  • Another one of those authors that I just always buy from. Octavia Butler is a true gem.
