Book of the Month Overview

Today I wanted to share with you guys something that I absolutely love, my Book of the Month subscription. I'm sure you've seen in my posts that various books were BOTM picks for different months. Since a lot of people are unfamiliar with this subscription, I wanted to explain it in a little bit more detail! Book of the Month is a monthly book subscription that allows you to either choose one (or more) books from a set of predetermined picks, or skip the month if none of the books interest you. You can pay monthly (which is what I do) or pay for a longer subscription up front, and you can cancel at any time. The subscription covers one book per month, and you can add additional titles for $9.99. Shipping is always free, which is fantastic, and it's super fast as well! 

While the books are primarily adult fiction, they occasionally throw in a YA title, a biography/memoir, or a nonfiction option. They also frequently offer exclusive titles. For example, this month, BOTM was offering three different books that don't release to the public until January. All the books in the monthly offerings are hardcover new releases and have a special BOTM logo on the cover and spine. Sometimes they even include little extras, like luggage tags, wine glass cozies, or stickers, and each book comes with a bookmark.

What I really love about this subscription is that it introduces me to books and authors that I normally wouldn't have picked up on my own. While I do read adult fiction, I tend to gravitate towards the YA section in the bookstore, often missing out on good adult reads. Thanks to BOTM I've read some FANTASTIC adult books this year. I always look forward to the first of the month when I can log in, see the new picks, and make my selection.

Some of my favorite Book of the Month picks have included:
  • Final Girls by Riley Sager
  • The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
  • Into the Water by Paula Hawkins
  • The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman
This post is not at all sponsored, I just really wanted to share with you guys a bookish service that I as a reader absolutely love and couldn't live without. I just subscribed to a few more bookish boxes and can't wait to review them here in the new year.

Remember, you can cancel at any time so it's the perfect opportunity to try the service and get a new release cheaper than listing price, with no strings attached! To check out Book of the Month, you can visit their site here (warning, referral link ahead): https://www.mybotm.com/dk7pla8kfjn61or

Happy reading!

I have heard a lot about this subscription box but haven't tried it out yet. There are so many to pick from and I'm trying to decide which one I want to go with :)

I really have been thinking about a subscription service. I just haven't decided. I mostly read ebooks - so to pay for a book service it would have to be something unique.

I have tried the Book of the Month for a little while but was kind of bummed they didn't have any Christian fiction. It is a great subscription service though for many! :)

Never tried a book subscription before. Like the choices

I am reluctant to read 'Into the water', as I didn't enjoy her earlier book. Others are compeletly new to me!
