I found it even more difficult to choose which Amazon First Reads to download, as you know I always find it difficult but there were four books that I liked the look of the covers along with the Synopsis.
I liked the following:
- Historical Fiction: The Last Correspondent by Soraya M Lane, Pages: 336
- Gothic Fiction: The Haunting of Brynn Welder by Wendy Webb, Pages: 288
- Historical Fiction: Spellbreaker by Charlie N Holmberg, Pages: 300
- Contemporary Fiction: Perfectly Impossible by Elizabeth Topp, Pages: 314
I decided not to pre-order the other two books for now.

Synopsis: A world of enchanted injustice needs a disenchanting woman in an all-new fantasy series by the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Paper Magician.
The orphaned Elsie Camden learned as a girl that there were two kinds of wizards in the world: those who pay for the power to cast spells and those, like her, born with the ability to break them. But as an unlicensed magic user, her gift is a crime. Commissioned by an underground group known as the Cowls, Elsie uses her spell-breaking to push back against the aristocrats and help the common man. She always did love the tale of Robin Hood.
Elite magic user Bacchus Kelsey is one elusive spell away from his master-ship when he catches Elsie breaking an enchantment. To protect her secret, Elsie strikes a bargain. She’ll help Bacchus fix unruly spells around his estate if he doesn’t turn her in. Working together, Elsie’s trust in—and fondness for—the handsome stranger grows. So does her trepidation about the rise in the murders of wizards and the theft of the spell-books their bodies leave behind.
For a rogue spellbreaker like Elsie, there’s so much to learn about her powers, her family, the intriguing Bacchus, and the untold dangers shadowing every step of a journey she’s destined to complete. But will she uncover the mystery before it’s too late to save everything she loves?
