Top 5 Best Books for Free on Apple Books
Buying new books every week can do quite a bit of damage on you wallet. Libraries and thrift stores are great options to save money, but not all libraries offer ebooks. Luckily Apple Books has a surplus of ebooks to download for free. Here are my 5 favorites that caught my eye on the app:
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
This was my favorite book that was assigned in high school. The story is about a millionaire, Jay Gatsby, who is still pining over a women whom he loved when they were young. The book takes place in the “Roaring Twenties” (1920’s) which adds a layer of depth to the lifestyles presented in the story. If you are looking for a quick read with a lot of drama, this is the book for you.
- Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover
I have not yet read this novella by Colleen Hoover, but I am planning to. If you have been wanting to read Hoover’s work but are unsure of where to start, this can be a great starting point since it is right at your fingertips. The book is a romance that was published in 2013 of a modern take on the Cinderella fairytale.
- Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne
I loved the 2008 movie of the same name when I was a kid. This book has been on my list of books to read for years, so I was thrilled to see it was available for free. I am a huge fan of stories filled with adventure, so I am excited to dive into this book and finally check it off of my list.
- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
This classic has been on my radar due to the movie adaptations that have been popping up on tv and streaming services. I have seen bits and pieces of the newest movie, but I turned it off before I got too far into it. I want to read the book first so I can be introduced to the story and characters with fresh eyes.
- Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
Macbeth is also available on Apple Books, but Romeo and Juliet is my favorite Shakespeare play. It brings back such strong memories of my first year in high school. This classic tragic romance is a must read for everybody. Like many classics, Romeo and Juliet has several movie adaptations. The only version I have watched is the modern one with Leonardo DiCaprio. I highly recommend reading the play before watching the movie to compare and contrast them.
