Books: “Wild”, “If I Stay”, “Me Before You”, and 3 Other Bestselling Kindle Novels for $2.99 or Less!

I love “Bonanza” days like this on Amazon! I pretty much refuse to pay more than $6-7 for a Kindle book and most bestsellers are normally $9-11 so I snag them up when they’re cheap. If you want to grab any of them, just click on the link above the book cover.

“Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail” by Cheryl Strayed for $2.99.

Wild by Cheryl Strayed

I’m not normally a “life’s an adventure” type reader but I’ve heard such good things about this book, I’m going to give it a try. One of my favorite books ever was an “adventurous” book I didn’t expect to like – “Into Thin Air” by Jon Krakauer – so who knows? I just heard they’re making “Wild” into a movie starring Reese Witherspoon – cool!

“If I Stay” by Gayle Forman now $2.99.

I started this book and, honestly, couldn’t get into it. Then I saw the movie and it made me want to try again so it’s back on the “to read” list. This is the first in a series; the next book is “Where She Went (If I Stay, Book 2)”.

“Me Before You” by Jojo Moyes for $2.99.

Get this book! It was SO good in a totally unexpected way. Yes, it was sad but also life-affirming.

“Belong to Me” by Marisa de los Santos only $1.99.

I read this book years ago and it was a favorite. I highly suggest you read “part one” caled “Love Walked In” first, though.

Now for a couple “YA” books that are great for adults, too:

“Divergent” by Veronica Roth for $2.99.

This book has over 13,000 5-star reviews so I guess that speaks for itself 🙂 It’s Book 1 in the Divergent series; here are the other 2: Insurgent (Divergent Trilogy, Book 2) now $6.99 and Allegiant (Divergent Trilogy, Book 3) now $6.99.

“The Giver” by Lois Lowry now $2.99, usually $8.99 for Kindle.

I read this book, written in 1993, over 10 years ago upon the recommendation -no, INSISTENCE – of a work friend. Again, this is not my usual genre but it was a quick read and one that really made me think so I heartily recommend it. Pick it up and I’ll bet you finish it this weekend 😉 There are Books 2, 3, and 4 to this series but they weren’t written until the 2000’s and I (skeptically) assume they were written to cash in on the YA book series trend.

Hope that gives you some good ideas for Kindle books and saves you some dough. Enjoy!
