Either way, you should check out this week’s book deals from Literary Edits. These are either books which we have read (and loved) or books which we think our readers will love!
We have a special announcement to make this week: unfortunately, after much consideration,we have decided that this will be the last Weekly Book Deals post that we share for a while. Instead, from June onwards, we will be sharing monthly book recommendations.
