Five Five Star Books

So far I have read five of the books I’ve gotten from Book of the Month. And so far all five have been five star books! Now, the odds of them all being five star books is pretty good since they offer five or so specially selected books each month and you get to pick which specific book you want so your selection is going to be one that sounds really really good to you. I’ll be renewing my membership next year for sure!

Black Cake by Charmaine Wilkerson
Instructions for Dancing by Nichola Yoon
(this one was my favorite book of all for the first half of this year)
The Golden Couple by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
Things We Do in the Dark by Jennifer Hillier
(this one was my favorite book out of all I read in July and August)
The Unsinkable Greta James by Jennifer E. Smith

Book of the Month March and April

I finished off the three month Book of the Month subscription Ani gave me for Christmas in March with The Unsinkable Greta James.

I’ve liked the books I’ve gotten so much that I subscribed for a year so in April my pick was Like a Sister by Kellye Garrett. I didn’t even realize until it arrived and I noticed the author’s name that I’ve read another book by her, Hollywood Homicide, and quite enjoyed it.

Book of the Month for Me!

Ani gave me a three month subscription to Book of the Month Club for Christmas. I get to pick each month from a selection of five books (or pick a past book if none of them strike my fancy, and add up to two additional books if I want, or skip a monthly shipment if I temporarily lost my mind… it’s really flexible like that). My first box arrived a couple weeks ago.

I had no idea Book of the Month has been around since 1926. That’s close to a hundred years! I chose Black Cake by Charmaine Wilkerson for my first book. It won’t actually be released for a couple more weeks, but I’ve got it already. It’s a debut novel. I love the whole solve a puzzle inheritance thing. (Obviously given how much I loved The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes).

I can’t wait to get started reading this one and getting to see and pick my selections each month. Pretty sure I’ll be doing an annual membership before these three months are up! (Check out Book of the Month. So far it’s pretty awesome!)
