It really has got the best selling and a lot of praises since published in February of 2021, for instance, “The Four Winds seems eerily prescient in 2021… Its message is galvanizing and hopeful: We are a nation of scrappy survivors. We’ve been in dire straits before; we will be again. Hold your people close.”―The New York Times.
However, if you are wishing for the rich character personality and detailed plot transition, you may get disappointed, just as Ron Charles said “I confess, I spent too long rolling my eyes at the flat style, the shiny characters and the clunky polemics of “The Four Winds” before finally giving in and snuffling, “I’m not crying — you’re crying!”
2. When We Believed in Mermaids: A Novel by Barbara O’Neal

When she arrived in Newzealand, the old stuff came out of her mind, including the reason why two sisters were getting appart.

Reading this book, you would be able to feel the sister bonds and the relationship of family. As imperfect human beings, how they find a way to accept the fact and forgive each other will enlighten us.
And Susan Wiggs’s review is pretty objective, she said “There’s a reason Barbara O’Neal is one of the most decorated authors in fiction. With her trademark lyrical style, she’s written a page-turner of the first order. From the very first page, I was drawn into the drama and irresistibly teased along as layers of a family’s complicated past were artfully peeled away. Don’t miss this masterfully told story of sisters and secrets, damage and redemption, hope and healing.”
3. The Moonlight Child by Karen McQuestion
The story happens on a moon night, Sharon looks through the neighbor’s window and involuntarily finds a kid that she has never seen before, washes the dishes in Fleming’s kitchen. Is it only an illusion? Until Niki came to live with Sharon, this mystery appears again.
After social services don’t help at all, they decide to find it out by themselves, how do they take action? Will they successfully rescue the kid?
This novel is a suspense novel whose structure is a three act structure, so the sight of story will be diverse. What touched me was their courage to rescue, and I enjoyed trying to figure out the solution with Sharon and Niki.
Some readers complain about the continuity of this book. For example, the first chapter is about Wendy and Edwin’s sad story. However, Wendy and Edwin are not mentioned at all in the whole chapter 2.
For the reader who loves suspense books, The Shadow Box is worth reading. You will enjoy the fast-paced and compact plot.
A murder that happen in a home almost killed the Artist Claire, who did that? The prime suspect is her husband since she was collecting the evidence of Griffin’s violent crime, and he is running for governor, if these are exposed and he will absolutely lose his political career.

Clair must consider how much she is willing to pay to tell the truth so that to take her husband down and break the group that protects Griffin.
This novel have got many praise, here are two of them:
“The Shadow Box is Luanne Rice at her dazzling best. Filled with dark family secrets and wells of deep emotion, this novel will stick with you long after you’ve finished reading.” —Harlen Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Run Away
“A clever protagonist in extreme danger pitted against a cruel and powerful circle made the stakes in The Shadow Box so high I could barely stop reading for a drink of water. Luanne Rice creates a thrillingly compelling tale of common cruelty, high ambition, and the courage it takes to oppose them. Well done!” —Barbara O’Neal, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author of When We Believed in Mermaids
5. If You Tell: A True Story of Murder, Family Secrets, and the Unbreakable Bond of Sisterhood by Gregg Olsen
(If you’re easy to get worried about the crime novel but want to know what’s going on, you can read the report about Shelly Knotek)
It is a true story — three daughters were suffering from abuse since they were little, and some people have weirdly disappeared, finally the three daughters sent both the murderer and mom into prison.
However, Shelly Knotek only was sentenced to 22 years, they think she might hurt other people after she relives from jail. So, they require Gregg Olsen to write this novel to let people know what her mom did.
To be honest, I don’t recommend reading this kind of true story. Especially for the empathy person, it will be an emotional burden. What she did really hurted her children and killed three people, so, take it seriously.
6. The Last Thing He Told Me: A Novel by Laura Dave
Laura Dave is the author of the best sellers of Eight Hundred Grapes and The Divorce Party, and her novel — The Last Thing He Told Me got 4 to 5 points on Goodreads. What is more, the novel will be developed to be a TV series for Apple TV+, and Julia Roberts will star as the main character– Hannah Michaels.
As the story begins, Hannah is facing an issue. Her husband disappeared and the FBI is trying to grab him, he left a note saying “Protect her”. Hannah knows “her” means the stepdaughter who is always cold to her. The mystery of her husband scratches our attention, motivating us to keep reading.
If you like to read family and suspense novels, you shouldn’t miss this book.
7. The Midnight Library: A Novel by Matt Haig
We all have dreamed of rewriting our life to fix those regrets, and Matt Halg wrote this novel for us.
The story is about: Nora wanting to end her life but accidentally gets into a library, which is between life and death. All the books on the shelf are another life opportunity.
Open a book to start a new chance of life, when the despair gets full, she will return to this library. Then, pick another one, until she finds the one she really loves, and she will live there till she dies.
The idea of this novel is quite brilliant, the suck moments happen from time to time. When I read this novel, I felt there is still another opportunity in our life.
For sure, the chances are not the same for us, for instance, not everyone will be a billionaire. However, there is still another way to make things better or worse, it depends on our actions at this moment.
So, I think this is quite uplifting for adults, and you can read with your children if they‘re interested in it, and talk about the details with them, it will help them to overcome the obstacles in life and get the right mindset about suiscide.

“Told in gripping prose, In an Instant is both an addictive, suspenseful read and a thoughtful exploration of what each of us would do in a time of intense trauma. Redfearn’s characters are so real and the plot so mesmerizing I couldn’t think about anything else. A must for book clubs!” —Anita Hughes, author of Rome in Love and Christmas in Vermont
“Suzanne Redfearn’s latest, In an Instant, is a captivating, heartbreaking, but ultimately uplifting novel about a family’s devastating tragedy and its aftermath. Reminiscent of The Lovely Bones, the story is told by sixteen-year-old Finn, who struggles to find closure for herself while watching her loved ones do the same. Redfearn deftly explores those split-second decisions that can alter our destinies and the guilt we hold on to, despite our need to let go.

10. The Bad Seed by Jory John(Author), Pete Oswald (Illustrator)
How long hadn’t you read the children’s picture book? For those who are tired but want to read some relaxing books or they are looking for a book that fits both adults and children, I would recommend The Bad Seed.
This book is talking about a seed who did a lot of bad behaviour, and all the seeds are afraid and avoiding him. Then, the story goes to why the seed will become a bad seed. What happened to him? Finally, he decided to do a good thing once a day, and there are some seeds that have seen his change.
There are some details we will feel similar: For example, the other seed would whisperingly talk about the bad seeds. Next, when the bad seed was spit out and dropped down on the land, he decided to not smile anymore. What is more, the bad seed decides to be good but he also accepts how hard it is to be a good seed, he says that the only thing he can do is keep trying.
That is the life that we live everyday, we are not always encountering the sunny day and doing the good things. But when we are feeling good, we will be trying to warm others. Also, it takes time to accept that we are not totally good or bad, but mixed.
Although children may not be able to understand as much as adults. But this story will stay in their mind as a seed, and it will become a plant some day.
That is the 10 kindle best sellers, hope you have already found the one that interested you. If you want to convert some books from other stores such as Google Play Store or Barnes & Noble, you can read the related article on the right.
