First Impressions – Free YA Amazon Books

Amazon has a whole host of free books through their kindle scheme, and I stumbled across a tonne of free books classed as young adult. Here are some of the books I found, and my first impressions!

First Impressions – Free YA Amazon Books

I’ve never considered looking at free amazon books before – mostly because I’ve never seen any from the young adult genre before – but I’ve decided to have a go. I’ve tried to wade through the trash and find, in the first couple pages of an Amazon search, the young adult books that look most interesting and/or promising.

At time of publishing, all of these books were listen on Amazon UK digitally for £0.00. For transparency – this isn’t a sponsored post, but I am an Amazon affiliate, so if you do decide to pick up any of these free books, you’ll be helping me out a tiny bit.

Tainted [The ARC series #1] by Alexandra Moody

Find out what it means to be tainted in this post-apocalyptic future where the secrets are as deep and dark as the fallout shelter humanity survives in.

Elle Winters lost everything when the day of impact transformed Earth’s surface into an icy, desolate wasteland. All she has ever known are the artificial confines of underground fallout shelter, the ARC. Under the Council’s rule, ruthless officials roam the hallways, community comes first and everyone lives in fear of failing their annual testing. With one simple blood test you could be taken away without any warning or a word of goodbye.

When I hear ‘dystopia’ and ‘young adult’ in the same sentence of a book description, I’m instantly drawn to it, no matter what. The Hunger Games got me hooked and I’m hoping Tainted will live up to it’s promising setting.

Forbidden [The Arotas series #1] by Amy Miles

Roseline Enescue didn’t ask to become an immortal, to have all of the guests at her wedding slaughtered, or be forced into marriage with a man whose lust for blood would one day ignite the vampire legend.

Willing to risk everything for a chance at a normal life, Roseline escapes to America, but her transition into the human world isn’t easy. Mortal men flock after her while cutthroat girls plot her demise. Roseline soon discovers that cliche is sometimes based on reality, in a painful way!

I feel like this read is either going to be a strong hit, or a strong miss – but, as it’s currently listed on Amazon as being free, I’m willing to give it a chance.

EDIT: I checked some Goodreads reviews and, oh boy, there are a lot of people with divided opinions. Still, it’s free, and I’m going to give it a chance. Expect a DNF thoughts pretty soon if I don’t like it!

Amethyst [The Guardian series #1 ] by Heather Bowhay

College-bound Lexi Adams leads no ordinary life. Premonitions dictate her every move, compelling her to rescue strangers day and night. After years of self-sacrifice, she decides to ignore one, but innocent people die. So, when the next premonition depicts her own death, Lexi is faced with the decision of a lifetime. As if an ill-fated future isn’t enough to deal with, a series of strange illnesses and murders devastate her small town, and co-worker Jessica Nelson insists Lexi can help.

There are a lot of mixed thoughts about this on Goodreads so, much like Forbidden, I’m going to take a chance (or take one from the team – expect an update post) on Amethyst, too.
