As everyone knows, I love books, and reading. However, sometimes I find myself in a bit of a reading lull. This is caused for a number of reasons: I don’t have as much time to read for pleasure as I would like, I feel like I am reading the same few things, or that I am simply just too busy to read. When this happens, I need a good read to pull me out of the slump.
This is why I needed Book of the Month.
I know what you’re thinking. How can you join a monthly book club, when you have so many books stacked everywhere that you haven’t read yet?
I joined a few months ago, and so far, I am loving it. Each month for the grand price of $14.99, I can choose between five hardcovers across various genres. Keep in mind, the price of one hardcover book is about $20-$30 dollars, so this is some great savings right there.
Each of the books were picked by a panel of judges who selected only the best for you to choose from. I mean, this book had Gone With the Wind as one of it’s picks back in the day. These panelists really know their stuff folks, so you can trust that these picks are good.
And, the best part? Some of these books haven’t even been released yet. I mean, imagine. Reading a book before everyone else out there becomes obsessed with it. Honestly, that is the best feeling ever.
With that being said, the novels are books that are destined to be popular. I mean, this month, I picked out Hank Green’s new book. In the previous boxes, I’ve picked out The Dinner List by Rebecca Serles. That is definitely something that you’ve seen lurking around your local bookstores, and is gaining momentum. And, I got to read it first.
Additionally, it helps me get out of my reading comfort zone. I love my young adult and chic lit. Give me my Sarah Dessen, Emily Giffin and JoJo Moyes. While it’s great to know what you want, it sometimes can leave you in a reading bubble. For example, I’ve dipped my toe into reading The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock, a debut historical fiction novel by Imogen Hermes Gowar. I honestly do not remember the last time I read a historical fiction novel, so that was a good change of pace.
With that being said, I do want to point out some of the awesome perks of being a member of Book of the Month.
But, what if you don’t want to read any of these month’s picks? Or, what if you are still working on last month’s book? No problem. You can skip a month.
And, if you can’t decided between two books, it’s no issue as well. If you want to add an additional book, just put it in your cart for an additional $9.99. Now, that’s pretty easy.
With that being said, I highly recommend this to a different type of reader. You know I am an avid one, and try to read for pleasure as much as I can. But, this club is amazing for someone who isn’t as book obsessed as I am. Someone who wants to get into reading, and doesn’t know where to start. I mean, no matter what you’re into, you can easily find something that you like. And, since these are book experts, these guys know what they are talking about.
Even if you’re an avid reader like me, I love this too. I mean, how awesome is it to receive a package every month of a book? I think so. Every time I get my Book of the Month package, I get really excited. I mean, it’s nice to get a break from all of the bills and junk mail, and get some fun mail.
So, readers and those who love a good book everywhere, be sure to check out Book of the Month.
