Around mid-November I came across a deal for Kindle Unlimited(KU) where I got a 60 day free trial. I have always been curious about KU but as a blogger and a reader I’m not lacking in books. But since it was free I really had nothing to lose so I tried it. I figured if I hated it I would cancel in January and that would be the end of it. Needless to say…I’m now paying the $9.99 a month.
The thing I have learned, KU isn’t for everyone, but it is definitely for me. There are a lot of books listed and it is easy for me to find a fun s[ports romance, or a motorcycle club book to suggest to a friend. It’s easy for me to grab a quick read that I may be able to suggest to another reader. And it is easy to read a book and say nope, return because it wasn’t for you. I even have a dedicated wish list on Amazon to help me remember what I want to read that is a KU book. There are a lot of gems to be found in the self-published world that KU is mostly made up of. But there are also some traditionally published books too.
Amazon is currently offering a deal to Prime members to try Kindle Unlimited for $1.99 for 3 months. The deal ends tonight at 11:59pm PST so you will need to act fast and not be an existing KU member. But since I saw this deal I did a little browsing in the Teen/Young Adult section to see what they had available and I was pleasantly surprised when I saw 7 books(I only went through 50 pages of the 400 available) that I have read and loved.
1) The Orphan Queen – Jodi Meadows
2) Catching Jordan – Miranda Kenneally
3) Doll Hearts – Colleen Clayton
4) Under the Never Sky – Veronica Rossi
5) Emmy and Oliver – Robin Benway
6) Things We Know By Heart – Jessi Kirby
7) The Selection – Kiera Cass
*bonus…all 7 Harry Potter books are also Kindle Unlimited
So is Kindle Unlimited worth it? For me it 100% is. But for you, that is something you will need to find out. So take the chance now and if you are a Prime member, sign up for the 3 months and decide after that.
