Book of the Month couldn’t have came at a better time! I’ll be stuck inside recovering from a minor surgery and could use the power of reading to soothe my aches and pains. Never heard of BOTM? Here’s the idea. Each month 5 judges including a guest judge skim hundreds of books and select those hidden gem novels you’ve always wanted (not just those books on the bestseller list that every single person has read). Judges can include well known book editors, best selling authors and celebrities! On the first of the month the books are posted with a quick review to help you make your selection, then you simply choose one hardcover for only $9.99 with free shipping. Avid reader? Each additional book is just another $9.99! The April book selections are;
- One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter by Scaachi Koul – Personal essays by Koul on growing up as an Indian girl living in western culture, quiet silly at times so the perfect read at the moment!
- American War by Omar El Akkad – an imaginative story told of a war in 2074, keeps you on your toes this one!
- Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann – a story of death and mystery, chilling for sure.
- Startup by Doree Shafrir – a funny story on how there’s not always ‘an app for that’!
- The Impossible Fortress by Jason Rekulak – set in 1987 about a group of boys on a mission to find a very special issue of Playboy.
