Amazon's Bestselling Fiction Books
1. Fifty Shades of Grey
Audiences fell in love with Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey's troubled love story as a book, before it was adapted into a Hollywood film starring Dakota Johnson. If they haven't already read this, they're sure to love it.
2. The Hunger Games
While it's considered a "young adult" novel, readers of all ages were thrilled by Katniss Everdeen's fight to survive in this science fiction story. The teenager is forced to compete in The Hunger Games, where teenage gladiators fight to the death on live TV.
3. Catching Fire
In the second Hunger Games book, Katniss is forced to compete in another life or death competition as she's drawn deeper into the heart of the Capitol's evil plans.
4. Fifty Shades Darker
Anastasia and Christian return in this sequel to the global bestseller, which reveals more about the troubled billionaire's inner demons.
The action-packed conclusion to the Hunger Games series sees former enemies uniting in a rebellion to overthrow the Capitol, but Katniss and Peeta's relationship is tested by their latest trial.
6. Gone Girl
If you love true crime shows like Dateline, you'll get a kick out of this edgy thriller by Gillian Flynn, which begins with a housewife's mysterious disappearance.
7. Fifty Shades Freed
The long-awaited conclusion to the Fifty Shades series asks "What happens after happily ever after." Unsurprisingly, the answer threatens to drive Anastasia and Christian apart once and for all.
8. The Help
The lives of three women living in Mississippi in the 1960s intersect in this heartfelt, funny and important novel about life in the midst of the Civil Rights movement.
From the author of Seabiscuit, this book tells the true story of the life of Louis Zamperini, who became an Olympic athlete, served in World War 2, survived a plane crash and served time in a Japanese POW camp. Perfect for the history buff on your list.
10. The Fault In Our Stars
John Green's latest book - Turtles All The Way Down - is set to become another massive hit, so it's worth revisiting his most popular work. The love story of two teenagers with cancer is guaranteed to make you cry before you reach the final chapter.
