Get stuck into one of these popular reads.

If you're struggling for inspiration when it comes to your next Kindle read, look no further. We've combed through Amazon's best seller list, which is handily shared on the Kindle homepage, to pick out 10 of the best reads that are particularly popular right now.

The best seller list currently features Sally Rooney's Normal People, perhaps owing to the fact the recent BBC adaptation of the book has gone down so well with viewers, as well as Sally's other critically-acclaimed novel, Conversations with Friends. Elsewhere in the list, there's Delia Owens' Where the Crawdads Sing, another novel earning heaps of praise at the moment. There are also lesser known titles to discover, spanning from dark thrillers to uplifting stories of love.

Advance praise for Normal People:

“I couldn’t put 
Normal People down—I didn’t think I could love it as much as Conversations with Friends, but I did. Sally Rooney is a treasure. I can’t wait to see what she does next.”
—Elif Batuman, author of The Idiot and The Possessed

Praise for 
Conversations with Friends:

“A writer of rare confidence, with a lucid, exacting style… [O]ne wonderful aspect of Rooney’s consistently wonderful novel is the fierce clarity with which she examines the self-delusion that so often festers alongside presumed self-knowledge… But Rooney’s natural power is as a psychological portraitist. She is acute and sophisticated about the workings of innocence; the protagonist of this novel about growing up has no idea just how much of it she has left to do.”
– The New Yorker

“Rooney has the gift of imbuing everyday life with a sense of high stakes…a novel of delicious frictions.”
– New York Magazine

“I love debuts where you just can’t believe that it was a debut… 
Conversations with Friends paints a nuanced, page-turning portrait of a whip-smart university student in the throes of an affair with an older married man.”
– Zadie Smith, Elle 

“The dialogue is superb, as are the insights about communicating in the age of electronic devices. Rooney has a magical ability to write scenes of such verisimilitude that even when little happens they’re suspenseful.”
– Curtis Sittenfeld, The Week

“Sharp, funny, thought-provoking . . . a really great portrait of two young women as they’re figuring out how to be adults.”
– Celeste Ng, "Late Night with Seth Meyers Podcast" 

“This book. This book. I read it in one day. I hear I'm not alone.”
– Sarah Jessica Parker (Instagram)

“The self-deceptions of a new generation are at the core of Sally Rooney’s debut, Conversations With Friends (Hogarth), which captures something wonderfully odd-cornered and real in the story of an Irish millennial…”
– Megan O'Grady, Vogue's 10 Best Books of 2017

"[A] bracing, miraculous debut."
– The Millions

Best novel this year by a country mile is 
Normal People by Sally Rooney . . . Brilliant. ― Spectator Books of the Year

Love, sex, class, work, miscommunication and melancholy are all described in prose that is somehow at once lapidary and mysterious; glittering but with the feeling of something moving like weather behind the sentences. ― 
New Statesman Books of the Year

Quite astonishing. ― 

Rooney's second novel is one you read in three days flat, a Tube stop-missing, escalator-reading tale . . . Rooney's style is pure poetry, sparse and heartbreaking, and writing this three months after I finished it I find my chest still aches for the pair of them. ― 
Evening Standard Books of the Year
