Here we have a list of some of the most-read books so far this month. This may not be the entire list, as there are SEVERAL Harry Potter books included in this list, but there are also many other much newer items that remain here. I know that I have already shared some of these books with you in the past, but in knowing the attention that they have received from many other readers right now, it could be helpful to find some of those books that could be quite interesting and entertaining for you. We all have a lot more time at home right now, and many of us are alone. Believe it or not, books can help you fill up a lot of that empty time, so take a look and see if any of these would help you out!
Remember that this list is updated weekly on Amazon, and there will always be options that change regularly. It seems like many people want Harry Potter, but there are also some brand new entries to this list at this point as well. So, take a look at some of these and see if they would be the perfect read for you:
- Where The Crawdads Sing – For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” haunted Barkley Cove, North Carolina. In late 1969, Chase Andrews is found dead, and the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is actually sensitive and intelligent, surviving alone for years in the marsh that she calls home until then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. Possible love enters her life, two young men intrigued by her wild beauty, and Kya opens herself to a new life. But it leaves unthinkable results.
- American Dirt – Lydia Quixano Pérez lives in Acapulco, runs a bookstore, has a son, Luca, the love of her life, and a wonderful husband who is a journalist. One day a man enters the shop to browse and comes up to the register with a few books he would like to buy. Javier is erudite, charming, and he is actually the jefe of the newest drug cartel that has gruesomely taken over the city. When Lydia’s husband’s tell-all profile of Javier is published, none of their lives will ever be the same. Forced to flee their comfortable middle-class existence Lydia and Luca are now migrants, riding north to the United States, to escape Javier’s reach. – Already being hailed as “a Grapes of Wrath for our times,” American Dirt is a rare exploration into the inner hearts of people willing to sacrifice everything for a glimmer of hope.
- Little Fires Everywhere – In Shaker Heights everything is planned—from the layout of the winding roads to the colors of the houses to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules. As others enter their town adding to the Richardsons’ lives, though there are a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community. Battles develop between Elena and her tenants, leading to great community tension. Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood—and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster.
- The Stand – Published in 1978, The Stand, is now updated to the novel that is now considered to be one of his finest works. But as it was first published, The Stand was incomplete, since more than 150,000 words had been cut from the original manuscript. This apocalyptic vision of a world blasted by plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil has been restored to its entirety. The Stand: The Complete And Uncut Edition includes more than 500 pages of previously deleted content, along with new material added while reworking the manuscript for a new generation. It has new characters and endows familiar ones with new depths. It has a new beginning and a new ending. What emerges is a gripping work with the scope and moral complexity of a true epic. Hundreds of thousands of fans of the original The Stand wanted more, and this new edition is Stephen King’s gift. New readers will discover a triumphant and eerily plausible work of the imagination that takes on the issues that will determine our survival.
- The Giver of Stars – Alice Wright marries Bennett Van Cleve hoping to escape her stifling life in England, but small-town Kentucky proves equally claustrophobic, including her overbearing father-in-law. So, upon hearing a call for a team of women to deliver books for Eleanor Roosevelt’s new traveling library, Alice signs on enthusiastically. Margery, the leader, is soon Alice’s greatest ally, and a smart-talking, self-sufficient woman who’s never asked a man’s permission for anything. They are joined by three other singular women who become known as the Packhorse Librarians of Kentucky. Based on a true story rooted in America’s past, The Giver of Stars is unparalleled in its scope and epic in its storytelling. Funny, heartbreaking, enthralling, it is destined to become a modern classic–a richly rewarding novel of women’s friendship, of true love, and of what happens when we reach beyond our grasp for the great beyond.
So, we have the first five here for you to take a look at… I will make sure to collect and share the rest of them ASAP so that these lists aren’t TOO long running down the page. All I can say is that I love reading plenty, and with the millions of books available out there today, there has to be one that you would absolutely fall in love with! Even possibly an author that you would love to read all of their publications ever released. Good luck and have fun!
