Kindle March Book Haul

HarperCollins, May 2019

There have been lots of great novels already released this year and plenty more on their way. 

I am looking forward to reading many of these books. I wanted to do a book haul for titles that I have ready to read on my kindle.

The Furies by Katie Lowe sounds absolutely amazing.

In 1998, a sixteen-year-old girl is found dead on school property. Her body is dressed in white and posed on a swing. The cause of death is unknown.

There are four girls that know what’s happened. They’ve managed to keep their secret. Until now.

I don’t know why but I am getting a little bit of a Virgin Suicides vibe from this novel and I can’t wait to read it.

This is due to be released on 2nd May 2019.


Half a World Away is the new book by Mike Gayle. I have adored this man’s novels for many years and always get a little excited when he released a book.

Hodder & Stoughton, June 2019

HarperCollins, April 2019

The general summary of this novel is Kerry Hayes is a single mum, a cleaner, and is Mariah Carey’s biggest fan.

Nick is a successful Barrister. He has a wife, a daughter and has a big house in Primrose Hill.

These two are strangers who have nothing in common and who may as well be living worlds apart.
It wasn’t always this way. They are both about to discover who they really are.


The Rules of Seeing by Joe Heap is another book I am looking forward to reading. The cover is beautiful.

The release of the paperback is on 18th April. The basic story surrounds Jillian (Nova to all but her mother,) who has lived thirty-two years in the dark.

She is now learning to see. The sky is blue, and green and grey. A whole spectrum of colours that are as changeable as her mood.

The one thing she can see is that Kate is going to change her life forever even though they have only just met.


Penguin Random House, Sept 2018

All We Ever Wanted is the latest novel by Emily Giffin. I have been a fan of Emily since I read Something Borrowed in my twenties. Again, another beautiful cover.

This book focuses on Lyla and Nina.

Everyone has seen the compromising photo of Lyla, a scholarship kid in a prestigious private school.

Everyone knows that Nina’s son, the one that’s been prepared for success since childhood is responsible for taking this photo.

As things spiral out of control, Nina and Lyla are drawn together; both being outsiders in an elite circle.

In an unlikely bond of friendship, the photo is forcing them to question who they are and who they are becoming.


Don’t You Forget About Me is the new novel from the brilliant Mhairi McFarlane.

HarperCollins, March 2019

Four words.

I love your laugh.x

That’s what it began with.

That was twelve years ago. It really began when Georgina was fired from the worst restaurant and found the worst boyfriend in the world in bed with someone else.

When her new boss, Lucas turns out to be the boy who wrote those words to her all those years ago, It feels like the start of something.

The only problem is, Lucas doesn’t seem to remember her. At all.

This sounds great and definitely my kind of book.


Mark Haddon’s new book is called The Porpoise and is due for release in May.

A newborn baby is the sole survivor of a terrifying plane crash.

The Borough Press, February 2019

Chalto & Windus, May 2019

She is raised in isolation by a wealthy, overprotective father knowing nothing of the rumour about a beautiful young woman being hidden from the world.

When a suitor visits and understands more than he should, is forced to run for his life.

He escapes abroad The Porpoise with an assassin on his tail.


The last book in this haul is the paperback release of Property by the author of We Need to Talk About Kevin, Lionel Shriver.

It’s her first collection of stories and it illuminates one of the modern ages most enduring obsessions, Property.

A woman creates a personal wedding present for a friend, to a son who refuses to leave home, this book to me sounds so intriguing and one I am very much looking forward to reading.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
