Yes, I selected this as well, it has the added benefit of being a book my wife might find interesting enough to read on her new Kindle tablet. The woman prefers paper!

I looked it up, and it turns out 'paper' is this flat crumbly stuff that the butcher wraps meat in and people dry their hands with when visiting a public restroom.

How does that work for books? do they smell like meat? Are they wet? I just don't get it.

I went with Takeoff, but frankly none of them were all that appealing to me this month.

Not excited about any of these, but based on your "blurb", I picked this one.

I went with the children's book " A Home for Leo " I thought it would be a cute story to have on my tablet, when my friend brings her granddaughter along with us. She's five so about the right age for book.

I got The Things We Don't Say. I like Kate Morton books and it sounds kind of like that. I hope so anyway. This month was tricky. I didn't get The Thinnest Air because I'm afraid it'll be like Gone Girl, and I really disliked that book. But I have Kindle Unlimited and all these books seem to end up there, so I can try it at some point if I want.

They not just seem to get into KU, but they will be in KU for sure at release the next month. Ever since Kindle First got renamed to Amazon First and now First Reads.

I read the sample of The things we don't say and really wanted to see what happens, but went with Takeoff in the end. Probably borrow it next month.

July Kindle First Reads

A Killer's Mind (Zoe Bentley Mystery) by Mike Omer (Crime Fiction)
A chilling thriller of serial murder and dark secrets that will leave you wondering, is the past really in the past?
Three Chicago women have been found strangled, embalmed, and posed as if still alive. Doubting the findings of the local PD’s profiler, The FBI calls on forensic psychologist Zoe Bentley to investigate.
Zoe quickly gets off on the wrong foot with her new partner, Special Agent Tatum Gray. Zoe’s a hunter, intense and focused; Tatum’s a smug maverick with little respect for the rules. Together, they must descend into a serial killer’s psyche and untangle his twisted fantasies, or more women will die. But when the contents of three inconspicuous envelopes reveal a chilling connection to gruesome murders from Zoe’s childhood, suddenly the hunter becomes the hunted.

Beautiful Exiles by Meg Waite Clayton (Historical Fiction)
From New York Times bestselling author Meg Waite Clayton comes a riveting novel based on one of the most volatile and intoxicating real-life love affairs of the twentieth century.
Key West, 1936. Headstrong, accomplished journalist Martha Gellhorn is confident with words but less so with men when she meets disheveled literary titan Ernest Hemingway in a dive bar. Their friendship—forged over writing, talk, and family dinners—flourishes into something undeniable in Madrid while they’re covering the Spanish Civil War.
Martha reveres him. The very married Hemingway is taken with Martha—her beauty, her ambition, and her fearless spirit. And as Hemingway tells her, the most powerful love stories are always set against the fury of war. The risks are so much greater. They’re made for each other.
With their romance unfolding as they travel the globe, Martha establishes herself as one of the world’s foremost war correspondents, and Hemingway begins the novel that will win him the Nobel Prize for Literature. Beautiful Exiles is a stirring story of lovers and rivals, of the breathless attraction to power and fame, and of one woman—ahead of her time—claiming her own identity from the wreckage of love.

The Tenth Island: Finding Joy, Beauty, and Unexpected Love in the Azores by Diana Marcum (Memoir)
From a Pulitzer Prize–winning writer comes an exuberant memoir of personal loss and longing, and finding connection on the remote Azorean Islands of the Atlantic Ocean.
Reporter Diana Marcum is in crisis. A long-buried personal sadness is enfolding her—and her career is stalled—when she stumbles upon an unusual group of immigrants living in rural California. She follows them on their annual return to the remote Azorean Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, where bulls run down village streets, volcanoes are active, and the people celebrate festas to ease their saudade, a longing so deep that the Portuguese word for it can’t be fully translated.
Years later, California is in a terrible drought, the wildfires seem to never end, and Diana finds herself still dreaming of those islands and the chuva—a rain so soft you don’t notice when it begins or ends.
With her troublesome Labrador retriever, Murphy, in tow, Diana returns to the islands of her dreams only to discover that there are still things she longs for—and one of them may be a most unexpected love.

The King Tides (Lancaster & Daniels) by James Swain (Thriller)
Reality and illusion blur for an ex-Navy SEAL investigating a deadly case of stalking in this page-turner that Michael Connelly calls “a hundred percent adrenaline rush disguised as a detective novel.”
Nicki Pearl is the perfect daughter—every parent’s dream. And that of strangers, too. Wherever she goes, she’s being watched. Each stalker is different from the last, except for one thing—their alarming obsession with Nicki.
Desperate times call for desperate measures, and Nicki’s father is turning to someone who can protect her: retired private detective and ex–Navy SEAL Jon Lancaster. Teaming up with FBI agent and former abduction victim Beth Daniels, Lancaster can help—his way. He’s spent most of his career dispatching creeps who get off on terrorizing the vulnerable. Unlicensed, and unrestricted, he plays dirty…But this case is unusual. Why so many men? Why this one girl? Does Nicki have something to hide? Or do her parents?
Trawling the darkest depths of southern Florida, Lancaster faces a growing tide of secrets and deception. And the deeper he digs, the more he realizes that finding the truth won’t be easy. Because there’s more to this case than meets the eye

Whisper Me This: A Novel by Kerry Anne King (Contemporary Fiction)
Single mother Maisey Addington has always fallen short of her own mother’s expectations—never married, a bit adrift, wasting her high IQ on dead-end jobs. The only thing Maisey’s sure she’s gotten right is her relationship with her twelve-year-old daughter, Elle…until a phone call blows apart the precarious balance of their lives. Maisey’s mother is in a coma, and her aging father faces charges of abuse and neglect.
Back at her childhood home, Maisey must make a heartrending life-or-death decision. Her confused father has destroyed family records, including her mother’s final wishes. Searching for answers, Maisey uncovers one unspeakable secret after another when she stumbles upon a shattering truth: a twin sister named Marley.
Maisey’s obsession with solving the mystery of her sister forces her to examine her darkest memories and triggers a custody battle with Elle’s father. Will Maisey’s love for her daughter be strong enough to break a cycle of abuse and create a new beginning for them all?

What if Everybody Said That? By Ellen Javernick (Childrens)
What if everybody chose to be kind?
If you tell someone that they can’t play with you, there’s no harm done, right? But what if everybody said that? What if everybody forgot to be kind…and made fun of other kids’ artwork at school, or told a fib, or refused to share with a person in need? The world wouldn’t be a very nice place to live. But what if everybody thought before they spoke, so the world would be a kinder place?
With clear prose and lighthearted artwork, this companion book to the bestseller What If Everybody Did That? explores the power of words and shows kids that the things we say matter.

For me it's between A Killer's Mind and The King Tides. I'll pick one and get the other on KU next month. It's nice to see 2 possibilites. Some months nothing appeals to me.

Looks like unanimous decision making this month? It was A Killer's Mind for me as well. Very interesting read with nice twist at the end. There is one little thing that I stumbled upon -- very mild spoiler that is irrelevant to the plot:

Spoiler:
Zoe miraculously has shampoo at the end, when at the beginning it was so important to forget (again) to put it on the shopping list.
