BOTM for October 2020

It’s time to pick your Book of the Month for October 2020. Book of the Month is my all time favorite book subscription service. I’ve had many over the years but none compare to BOTM. BOTM for October 2020 is one of my favorites.

Each month you are given a choice between 5 books. After 5 to 7 days a little blue box arrives with a little treasure inside. I normally have at least 2 beauties in my little blue box.

If you haven’t heard of Book of the Month or if you have yet to sign up, I’ll give you a wee bit of information about the subscription box.

Let’s look at BOTM for October 2020. . .

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.

What is Book of the Month?

It’s a monthly subscription service that is extremely popular throughout the book community.

How does it work?

Each and every month a group of awesome book lovers get together and select 5 books, across different genres so share with us. Every now and then they’ll throw in a book that hasn’t been released yet. This always makes me feel special, like a VIP or something.

At the beginning of the month, you’ll head over to their website and select the book that you fancy the most. If you’re not a fan of a current months book you can skip that month and a credit is added to your account which you can use the following month. If you happen to fancy more than one, you can order it as a add-on for a discounted rate. You can also choose to add-on a book from a previous month.

How much does it cost?

You get two different options. You can go with the monthly plan, like me, and get one credit a month for $14.99. If you’re brave, you can opt for the year plan that gives you 12 credits for $149.99, which saves you money in the long run. And shipping is always free!

Let’s set you have your eye set on an additional book, it’s only going to cost you $9.99.

Book of the Month often has a sale on for new subscribers where your first months book is only $9.99. Feel free to use my referral link to get your book for $9.99 anytime.

Here’s my BOTM for October 2020 pick!

BOTM for October 2020Ties That Tether by Jane Igharo

At twelve years old, Azere promised her dying father she would marry a Nigerian man and preserve her culture, even after immigrating to Canada. Her mother has been vigilant about helping—well forcing—her to stay within the Nigerian dating pool ever since. But when another match-made-by-mom goes wrong, Azere ends up at a bar, enjoying the company and later sharing the bed of Rafael Castellano, a man who is tall, handsome, and…white.

When their one-night stand unexpectedly evolves into something serious, Azere is caught between her feelings for Rafael and the compulsive need to please her mother. Soon, Azere can’t help wondering if loving Rafael makes her any less of a Nigerian. Can she be with him without compromising her identity? The answer will either cause Azere to be audacious and fight for her happiness or continue as the compliant daughter.

I can’t wait to dive into Ties That Tether as my BOTM for October 2020 and have the review up under all of the book reviews.

Head over to Book of the Month to pick out your October 2020 book.

Not feeling any October 2020 books? It happens. Until recently, if you weren’t a fan of this months picks, you would have to skip the whole month. Not anymore. You can now choose a member fave book and there are loads to choose from.

TTYL book lovers!


Remember to follow all things messy. . .

  1. I picked The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, Leave the World Behind, and Magic Lessons! This was a great month. And now I’m really wishing I’d picked Ties That Tether instead of Addie LaRue. It looks great!

    1. I really enjoyed Ties That Tether. I have heard good things about Addie LaRue. I’ll most likely order it an add on at some point. I might have done it this time but I had my eye on a certain YA book. My husband thinks I shouldn’t order more than one add on at a time. 🙂
