When it comes to Amazon services I’ve somehow collected all of them over the past few years. One that I really enjoy is Kindle Unlimited and today I have a few top picks for you.
Kindle Unlimited, a service that doesn’t actually require a Kindle, is a monthly subscription that gives you access to a wealth of free e-books and magazines across lots of genres. The caveat is that you can only have 10 titles in your Kindle Unlimited library at any one time so you will be swapping in and out – much like a real life library.
Because of this, Amazon are always changing what is available to you so there’s always something new to find which can be a bit overwhelming. So today I’ve picked a random bunch that I think you should jump on if you can. *Note – these are currently available on Amazon UK.
Saga Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
You’ve most likely already heard about this super popular graphic novel but if you haven’t it’s the first in a brilliant science fiction/fantasy series that follows two soldiers from opposite sides of a never-ending galactic war as they fall in love and risk it all to bring a new child into the universe.
My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite
The title says it all really but it’s less thriller-y and more an exploration of sibling relationships and what families would do for eachother. It’s a short read at only 226 pages so works really well for readathons or as a book you can binge in one cosy afternoon. Braithwaite’s short story Treasure is also on Kindle Unlimited at the moment and packs a real punch so I would also recommend it.
Bunny by Mona Awad
I keep including this book in all of my recommendations but it is a brilliant book to read in October and it’s free through Kindle Unlimited. If you want to hear more about this one you can check out my Dark Academia Recommendations or my ‘Weird’ Book Recommendations.
The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
This adult romance follows data analyst Stella Lane, who has Asperger’s, as she hires a male escort to teach her how to be a good girlfriend so she can get married and appease her demanding mother. It has the ‘fake-dating’ trope that can be polarising for some but for me it worked perfectly.
The Near Witch by V. E. Schwab
V. E. Schwab’s debut novel was recently re-published but it still hasn’t received the hype or attention that her other series have. It’s a YA fantasy that follows young Lexi who has heard the old story of The Near Witch her whole life but when a new boy arrives in her village she begins to question whether what she’s been told is true.
The Apartment by K. L. Slater
This adult thriller is set in west London and follows Freya who is in need of a miracle after her husband’s betrayal, the loss of her family home and the loss of security for her five-year-old daughter Skye. I read this in one day because I was totally hooked – it’s a perfect unsettling read for this time of year.
If We Were Villains by M. L. Rio
Another book I’ve spoken about a fair amount over the past few months. It’s a dark academia that follows Oliver Marks who has just served ten years in jail for a murder that he may or may not have committed whilst at college. Grab this one whilst you can!
The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay
I haven’t read this one yet but it is on my TBR! It’s a horror story that follows seven-year-old Wen and her parents Eric and Andrew as they vacation in a remote cabin on a quiet lake when strangers suddenly arrive and a gripping tale of paranoia begins.
I hope this was helpful and gives you some inspiration for your next Kindle Unlimited picks! What’s been your favourite KU read lately?
