There are actually several possibilities for me this month. I'll pick one and check GR for the rest -- these books are often offered as free giveaways. I'd like to see some reviews, first.

Only one difference in this month's UK list (https://www.amazon.co.uk/kindle-dbs/firstreads).

The difference is the psychological suspense offering which for us is The Other Girl - and that's the one that appeals to me the most.

There are actually several possibilities for me this month. I'll pick one and check GR for the rest -- these books are often offered as free giveaways. I'd like to see some reviews, first.

Sadly the the GR giveaways are only for the US and Canada.  :(  On the other hand I do have KU so I can read as many of them as I want in the end - not exactly free, but at no extra expense, if that makes sense!  :-\ Although, having said that, most months I struggle to find even one I want to read anyway.

Not sure yet. Last month I had 3 possibles. A couple sound good this time, but not "jump on it" good. Waiting for reviews. Since I have KU, its not really any hurry anyway. Since they'll be in it in a month. I am having a backlog of library loans right now.

I do NOT have KU .... but I have also noticed that the First Reads often become Prime Reads. And the KOLL is almost completely identical to the KU catalog .... so one a month there.

And .... it's not like I have nothing to read! :o Just had another couple long time holds come available. :D

Same here. I havenít used prime video once, since it was introduced. Iíve used prime wardrobe once. I donít even know what all the ďperksĒ are. Donít care. Irritated I am not offered al la carte prime... just the shipping, please.
But, I wonít be dropping kindle. I can live without the rest.

I ended up going with Find Layla.

Interference would have been my second choice. I may try to win it on Goodreads, as Ann mentioned.

I took The Woman in the Moonlight (Patricia Morrisroe) but haven't read yet. These are usually on my back burner. I have so many books. Wouldn't give up Prime -- love the shipping and the videos (that are included with Prime).
