I joined Book of the Month Club earlier this year. I’ve never signed up for subscription boxes before because most services don’t let you pick your books. You simply get what they send you. Well, what if I don’t like the book? What if I already have the book?
I picked Book of the Month because I could skip a month if I needed to, or add more books to my box if I wanted.
So far, so good. Each month I choose between five new book selections and pick one for my box. I’ve skipped a month here and there when I needed to. I love having that option. The flexibility and peace of mind that gives me is incredible.
Meet September’s Book Selection
I always have a difficult time choosing just one book for my box. Most of the time, I want to choose at least two or three.
I’m sure you’ve seen this book around quite a bit recently. Honestly, I don’t know who Amy Schumer is, but I’ve heard so many great things about this book that I would love to read it. I swear, everyone I know is reading it. It’s supposed to be funny and witty and an absolute riot to read. It sounds right up my alley!
I skipped September because I have a lot of other books to read this month, but I wanted to choose this book for my box. It’s about a migrant couple that move to New York and work for a wealthy couple. They’re lives and destinies become intertwined in both good and bad ways. It sounds wildly fascinating.
This is the other book that I debated over getting this month (honestly, I wanted ALL of them). As a crime/detective novel, it’s completely out of my comfort zone, yet well within my interest. A terrible crime that happens when neighbors get together for dinner – and an intense investigation follows.
A bit different than the other book selections this month, All at Sea is a memoir from the author. She describes the horrific experience of her children’s father drowning in Jamaica. It sounds heartwrenching. If you decide to read this book, bring your tissues. I think you’ll need them!
A very unique look at post-revolution Russia as it transitions to the Soviet Union, this story is about an aristocrat placed under house arrest. He creates a new life for himself within the walls of his prison. While this could be boring, it doesn’t sound that way. I’ll have to snag it from the library one day and read it.
