Since it’s been a while, I thought I would show you some of the books that Amazon made me buy!

Well those are some of the recent(ish) books Amazon made me buy! I’m actually surprised that they’re all YA because I don’t often search for YA books exclusively on kindle, I just look for anything that sounds good. Or has a beautiful cover.

Speaking of beautiful covers, can we just admire some of these gorgeous covers for these books? I’m seriously debating seeing if Seven Ways to Kill a King and Between Ink and Shadows have physical copies available, because I need them on my shelf! Melissa Wright must have a connection to an artist or be one herself because WOW these are so pretty and I need to see them in person!

What are some books Amazon made you buy recently? Let me know if there are any books I should check out, I’m always open to suggestions!
