Most Read Books Weekly

Hey guys! I was reading roaming through Amazon and I stumbled upon their “Top Read” and “Top Sold” charts. I was instantly inspired to share these with you guys! Instead of showing the whole list (it’s a tad long), I am going to pick a few that look worth reading! Let’s get started!               

                                           The Handmaid’s Tale 

#1 Top Read Book. This one seems pretty interesting. It is not what I typically read, but I think the concept is intriguing. It gives me almost a 1984 vibe based on the blurb. I love anything that has to do with the future of the world. I don’t read those types of books often but since this one seems so popular, it might be worth picking up. A snippet of Amazon’s blurb is listed below:

Set in the near future, it describes life in what was once the United States and is now called the Republic of Gilead, a monotheocracy that has reacted to social unrest and a sharply declining birthrate by reverting to, and going beyond, the repressive intolerance of the original Puritans. The regime takes the Book of Genesis absolutely at its word, with bizarre consequences for the women and men in its population. 

                                             STILLHOUSE LAKE

#7 Top Read Book. This is the book that actually brought me to the Top Charts on Amazon. I have seen this title everywhere on my recommended books. I have also seen quite a few bloggers write reviews on it. So, it caught my eye. This is very much up my Alley when it comes to books I want to read. It seems to be a thriller and looks suspenseful. All things that are an A+ in my book, usually. A snippet of Amazon’s blurb is listed below:

But just when she’s starting to feel at ease in her new identity, a body turns up in the lake—and threatening letters start arriving from an all-too-familiar address. Gwen Proctor must keep friends close and enemies at bay to avoid being exposed—or watch her kids fall victim to a killer who takes pleasure in tormenting her. One thing is certain: she’s learned how to fight evil. And she’ll never stop.

#8 Top Read Book. This is another one of those murder mystery type books that I love so much. I actually really love this cover, to be honest. It is so simple, but the type grasps your attention. I have not seen this circulating too much around the blogging community, but it looks good nonetheless. A snippet from Amazon’s blurb is listed below:

When a bartender leaves the resort late one night, and Bo and Cal discover her battered body in the snow, it’s the first sign that danger lurks in the mountains that surround them. The police suspect Cal, but Bo finds herself trusting him—and turning to him as another woman is murdered and the Longbows are stunned by Alice’s sudden reappearance. The twisted story she has to tell about the past—and the threat that follows in her wake—will test the bonds of this strong family, and thrust Bodine into a darkness she could never have imagined.

              Into The Water

#11 Top Read Book. This one has been on my radar for a while. It has a nice cover, which ultimately drew me to the book in the beginning. However, I see it EVERYWHERE! It is following me. It wants me to read it. This book seems dark and suspenseful, but strangely lovely at the same time. The blurb hooked me and leaves me with the impression that the main character is going to embark on a journey that is not only going to impact her life, but impact mine as well. A snippet from Amazon’s blurb is listed below:

A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged.

 

I’m dying to know, have you read any of these?! Do any of these deserve to be rated higher than they are on the Top Read list? Let us know!
