Here is the Under the Dome book description from the Amazon website:
On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when — or if — it will go away.
Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens — town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician’s assistant at the hospital, a select-woman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing — even murder — to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn’t just short. It’s running out.
With 11 books for the Kids Kindle Daily Deal, that’s a little much to list out individually. However, here is the first book in the series, Judy Moody , book description from the Amazon website which has received an average user rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 50 customer reviews:
The first day of third grade puts Judy Moody in a mad-face mood. She just knows everyone will come back from summer vacation with word T-shirts, like “Disney World” or “Jamestown: Home of Pocahontas.” All Judy has is a plain old no-words T-shirt. She’ll have to go to a new classroom, with a new desk, and she won’t have an armadillo sticker with her name on it like she did last year. And knowing her luck, she’ll end up sitting next to Frank, the boy who eats paste. For breakfast her dad makes eggs with the yellow middle broken, and her younger “bother,” Stink, thinks he knows everything now that he’s starting second grade. But bad moods never last long with the irrepressible Judy Moody, and before long, her day–and year–look brighter. Mr. Todd assigns the class a “Me” collage, which sets Judy on a lively and hilarious self-exploration over the next few action-packed weeks.
Here is the Odd Thomas book description from the Amazon website:
Odd Thomas demonstrates Dean Koontz at his pinnacle, providing terrific entertainment that deals seriously with some of the deepest themes of human existence: the nature of evil, the grip of fate, and the power of love.

Here is the These Old Shades book description from the Amazon website:
Set in the Georgian period, about 20 years before the Regency, These Old Shades is considered to be the book that launched Heyer’s career. It features two of Heyer’s most memorable characters: Justin Alastair, the Duke of Avon, and Leonie, whom he rescues from a life of ignomy and comes to love and marry.
The Duke is known for his coldness of manner, his remarkable omniscience, and his debauched lifestyle. Late one evening, he is accosted by a young person dressed in ragged boy’s clothing running away from a brutal rustic guardian. The Duke buys “Leon” and makes the child his page. “Leon” is in fact Leonie, and she serves the Duke with deep devotion. When he uncovers the true story of her birth, he wreaks an unforgettable revenge on her sinister father in a chilling scene of public humiliation.
