This Week's Three Best Selling Books On Amazon

Share |

From time to time I bring my readers a list of some great books to read. They don't necessarily have anything to do with writing or blogging, but as the sun is waking up from its lengthy hibernation, now is the perfect time to sit outside with a good book (or two). So after the gardening is done, get these for your kindle (or paperback) and settle into a good read.

Here's this week's list: 

The Dark Tide by Andrew Gross

The Dark Tide

This book is ranked as a best seller in General books and has an average of four and a half stars, out of a possible five. It attracted 113 reviews and is published by Harper, reprint edition.
David Pitt from the Booklist says: 

The second solo novel from frequent James Patterson cowriter Gross is much better than his first. This one begins with a bang, as a bomb explodes in a commuter train station, killing several people, including New York City hedge-fund manager Charles Friedman. At roughly the same time, a suspicious auto accident kills a young man in Greenwich, Connecticut. The detective on that case, Ty Hauck, soon discovers an odd connection between the hit-and-run and the bombing. He investigates and discovers that Charles Friedman was not the man he appeared to be. He also forges a connection with the dead man’s wife, Karen, that leads him into uncharted waters.

The Dark Side is available in several formats including kindle , hard cover, paperback, CD, audio book etc. With an introduction like the one above, it's no wonder so many people are dipping their fingers into the dark tide.

Rooms by James L Hubbard

Rooms: A Novel

Rooms was published by B&H Books and has caused quite a stir on the literary front, especially in the Mystery and Spirituality tagged sections. Rooms has nineteen customer reviews with a staggering five star average. I haven't seen a perfect score like this for a very long time. The art work on the jacket is intriguing enough to tickle anyone's curiosity bone. Rooms is available in Kindle and paperback formats.
Amazon's product (part) review: 

On a rainy spring day in Seattle, young software tycoon Micah Taylor receives a cryptic, twenty-five-year-old letter from a great uncle he never knew. It claims a home awaits him on the Oregon coast that will turn his world inside out. Suspecting a prank, Micah arrives at Cannon Beach to discover a stunning brand new nine-thousand square foot house. And after meeting Sarah Sabin at a nearby ice cream shop, he has two reasons to visit the beach every weekend.

When bizarre things start happening in the rooms of the home, Micah suspects they have some connection to his enigmatic new friend, Rick, the town mechanic. But Rick will only say the house is spiritual. 

A Promise To Remember by Kathryn Cushman

A Promise to Remember

A Promise To Remember has been on Amazon's best selling list for some time now. The surprising thing about this book is that even though it's included as one of Kindle's free uploads, it has attracted quite a number of positive reviews (some negative ones too). Considering nineteen people out of twenty-five gave it a five star review (after getting it free), it's certainly worth a look.
One customer's review:
This isn't the type of story that I normally read. I was really surprised to find out how much I liked this book. I expected to be bored but I never was. This author did a really great job showing two women dealing with grief in mostly realistic ways. The characters were flawed but not so flawed that they were not likeable. I'm different from most reviewers in that I liked one of the mothers better than the other. However, both were likable and I felt compassion for each one. This book is thought-provoking, warm, and hopeful. 
A Promise to Remember was published by Bethany House and is available in Kindle, hard cover and paperback formats. If you do have a kindle, it should already be on it, ready for you to read.
