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 month’s book you can skip that month and 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 an 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 for new subscribers where your first month’s book is only $9.99. Feel free to use my referral link to get your first book for $5.00 anytime.
November Book of the Month 2020 Selections
From the award-winning writer Roxane Gay calls “a consummate storyteller” comes a cathartic novel about the life-changing weekend shared between two strangers and the love that forms between them. More details→
I liked it but didn’t like this book at the same time. Over time I’ve learned that you either really love their books, or I am just “eh” with their books. Honestly, it was a bit “eh” for me. I’m a big fan of Christina Lauren. This book left me a little bored and disappointed. More details→ Review→
A razor-sharp, wickedly smart suspense debut about an ambitious influencer mom whose soaring success threatens her marriage, her morals, and her family’s safety. To one of Emmy’s dangerously obsessive followers, she’s the woman that has everything—but deserves none of it. More details→

My pick for December Book of the Month 2020
I chose This Close to Okay by Leesa Cross-Smith and I can’t wait for it to arrive at my doorstep. It was an easy choice for me after reading the description. I am very excited to dive into the story. Something tells me that I will finish this book in one sitting.
Normally, I’ll pick up each month’s romance book, but seeing how I already read In a Holidaze, there was no need. Not to mention, I wasn’t a fan of the book either. You can read my review here.
Luckliy, I was ablenpick an add-on book as well. I went with The Mothers by Brit Bennett. I enjoyed her last book, The Vanishing Half so much that I had to see how her debut novel is just as good. I’ll post a review as soon as I’ve finished reading it.
Both books I’ve chosen for my December Book of the Month are written by Black women, which is amazing because I love supporting authors of color. We all know that authors of color often receive the least amount of marketing and pay from publishers. It’s important that we all do our part in supporting their work so they can receive the same recognition as their fellow writers.
Set within a contemporary black community in Southern California, Brit Bennett’s mesmerizing first novel is an emotionally perceptive story about community, love, and ambition. It begins with a secret. In entrancing, lyrical prose, The Mothers asks whether a “what if” can be more powerful than an experience itself. If, as time passes, we must always live in servitude to the decisions of our younger selves, to the communities that have parented us, and to the decisions we make that shape our lives forever.
