I have decided that 2014 is going to be the year of great books. Seriously. Every time I open up Amazon, I find 50 more books that I want to buy and download and neglect the children for. Sometimes the literary world gets dry, and I just don’t find much that pulls me in. This is not those times. I don’t know if writers have been saving their best for last, or if maybe they’ve been watching the market to see what kind of books we really really want (Spice Girls–you’re welcome. It will be stuck in your head until Sunday.) ANYWAY. Whatever the reason, I am super excited about the books that are out right now. There is even some really great Science Fiction out there, and that really isn’t a genre that I like much.
One of the great things about Amazon is the way that they pull out best sellers and get them front and center. I am constantly seeing a book referenced in another piece of literature, or a newspaper, or magazine, or on the back of the cereal box (Really-I read everything) and when I go to hunt for it on Amazon, most of the time it is right there on the front page and I don’t even have to look any further. Today’s Kindle Best Sellers 2014 are going to knock your socks off. Really. Pay attention, people. This is good stuff.

George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones 5-Book Boxed Set (Song of Ice and Fire Series): A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows, and A Dance with DragonsThe newest fantasy series to hit the screen, Game of Thrones is fantasy for people who don’t like fantasy. On par with the Lord of the Rings series, this “literary dervish” will keep you enthralled to the very end. Mary Higgins Clark has been terrifying readers for years. Her novels always make me sleep with the lights on after I’m finished. In this, her newest offering, Laurie Moran is trying desperately to protect her son, who witnessed his father’s murder at the age of three, and solve a twenty-year-old cold case that has become the focus of her new true-crime television show. When filming begins, it soon becomes apparent that the two cases are connected…and someone will kill to keep the truth hidden. When a remote lighthouse keeper and his wife find a baby washed up on shore, they make the decision to keep the infant for themselves. Two years later, when they return to the mainland, they discover that their choice has had devastating consequences…consequences in a world where there may be more than one right answer, and someone will face true heartbreak.
