April Kindle First Books

With Kindle First, Amazon Prime members are offered one free book each month from 6 books picked by Amazon’s editors. This is another monthly post with the Kindle First Email Subscription. This has been a great way to help others and myself decide what book to try. (My thoughts are in red with a * for the books I’m interested in).

This Amazon site explains the system. A note that this special offer is only offered for U.S. Amazon Prime members (or for $1.99).

So here is this month’s books. I’ve copied and pasted the email’s synopsis for the books. You can look at each Amazon link to get the book’s blurb, and also one from the Amazon editor on why they picked that book. Sorry but I’d much rather copy/ paste these one sentence synopsis from my email.

Any thoughts on these books would be great for helping me and others in choosing from these books. Thank you.

“A new legal thriller from bestselling author and famed O.J. Simpson trial prosecutor Marcia Clark.”

I’m not a Thriller mystery fan. Good on Marcia though for trying at a book series

“The mother of a grieving teenager makes a decision that may shatter their family forever.”

I’m not interested in Suspense mysteries. The cover looks nice.

The Eagle Tree by Ned Hayes

4.8 out of 5 stars (29 Reviews)
Release Date: May 1, 2016
Pre-order Price: $5.99

“A young boy must fight to protect what he loves, but can he do it without risking his family?”

A possibility. Not sure if this is a Young Adult book or not because it’s told through an autistic boy’s point of view. I like the cover artwork.


* War Fiction

Star Sand by Roger Pulvers

Star Sand by Roger Pulvers

4.3 out of 5 stars (39 Reviews)
Release Date: May 1, 2016

“For a girl loyal to both the U.S. and Japan during WWII, there is no enemy—only danger.”

This is a possibility for me. The blurb and this sentence makes this sound like a possible good read.


Any thoughts on these books would be great for helping me and others in choosing from these books. Thank you.
