Now that we're all staying home practicing social distancing, it's a better time than ever to catch up on your ever-growing list of reads that are gathering dust on your (digital?) shelves. And Amazon's Kindle Unlimited is here to help you do just that.
Plus, you can read anytime you want on any device you want — you DON'T need a Kindle! All you need to do is download the Kindle app *swoon*.
The service is $9.99/month (buying one print book a month is more expensive, guys!). But before you take the plunge, you can dip your toes with a limited deal of $4.99 for two months (instead of the regular fee of $19.98) OR a 30-day trial subscription — for FREE, no hidden fees or strings attached!
With over one million titles — which you can check out here — we're highlighting some of our favorites that we'll be reading during quarantine.
1.All seven Harry Potter books because you just *know* they've been calling to you for a much-needed Potter marathon lately. Want to take your reading experience up a notch? Try this gorgeous illustrated version instead!
2.And The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook to take it a step further — staying at home gives a perf opportunity to try out all 150+ recipes, switch up your daily meals, and satisfy your craving for cauldron cakes or treacle tarts (Harry's fave!).
3.A River in Darkness, a dark memoir about one man's life in — and escape from — North Korea that'll have you rooted to your screen.
4.The Haunting of Gillespie House if you're in the mood for a deliciously creepy and classic haunted house tale with enough suspense and spooky noises to keep you up at night. Old house? Check. Locked rooms? Check. Creepy graveyard? Check!
5.Attack on Titan Vol. 1 if you've binge-watched the anime series and now you're ready to binge-read the manga.
6.Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen, a fresh take and retelling focused on the villain of your favorite Disney fairytales. It's a great deep-dive into nostalgia and finally getting a backstory for the villains we grew up with.
7.Earth Abides — if you're a fan of dystopian novels like The Hunger Games, this classic will take you back to where it started! Still relevant today, it follows Isherwood, who discovers that a plague — which he unknowingly survived — has wiped out pretty much all of civilization, and now he has become part of the small number of devastated survivors who are attempting to rebuild and maintain a sense of society and normalcy once again.
8.Speaking of The Hunger Games, why not show it some love too? Get reacquainted with Katniss once again and don't forget what a trailblazer both she as a heroine and this series was for the genre!
9.SpongeBob Goes to the Doctor because I didn't think this post would be complete without everyone's favorite yellow sponge. A great book for helping the little ones in your life feel comfortable with going to the doctor once they realize even sponges have to go from time to time!
10.The Marriage of Opposites, a forbidden period romance set on an island in the 1800s about Rachel Manzano de Pissarro, the passionate and rebellious woman who gave birth to painter Camille Pissarro — the man who would go on to become one of the greatest artists of France. With Hoffman's lush, magical writing and a defiant love story that scandalizes the small Jewish community, you'll surely be rooting for this one!
11.Bloodline, a thriller inspired by real events, in which a pregnant journalist moves with her fiancé back to his Minnesota hometown, only to discover that this picture-perfect village seems a little too perfect...
13.Stolen Enchantress, perfect for fans of fairytale retellings that are looking for something a little more original. This one combines Beauty and the Beast with The Pied Piper in a tale ripe with unbreakable curses, sentient enchanting forests, and forbidden love. Plus, just look at that cover!
14.Small Sacrifices, a true crime story about a mother and what drove her to try and murder her three children. If you wanna stay up all night reading and go down a wormhole of research, this one's for you.
15.The Hundred Dresses, a beautiful classic picture book with an important message on bullying. You're introduced to a Polish girl who's bullied by her classmates for wearing the same faded dress every day. If you don't love the book after reading it, I'll change my name!
16.The Dressmaker's Gift, a historical fiction novel set in 1940s Paris about three women, each with a secret, brought together during wartime.
17.The Will and the Wilds, a bewitching story about two people who share the same soul and the consequences that will bring. Enna seeks help from Maekallus to fight off the monsters in the wildwood but his price — a piece of her soul — binds him to the mortal realm and if they can't break the spell, both will perish.
18.2AM Thoughts, a lovely collection of poetry that puts into words all the thoughts we have of love, heartbreak, yearning, and healing that come and go on those long, never-ending nights.
