Book of the Month: May 2017

Book of The Month: May 2017

Something you guys probably didn’t know (or maybe you did??) is that I love to read. In fact, I’m in an informal book club with two of my best friends. We pick a book (everyone gets to choose) and at the beginning of the month, we start to read. Last month, we implemented a rule where we could only read up to a certain chapter each week. I’m a fast reader and if a book is good, I can read the whole thing in one day…which I’ve done so so so many times. I’ll have to admit that I didn’t stick by that rule but I promise to next time.

Anyways, because of my book love, I wanted to share a subscription box with you guys. I’ve actually tried it on my own (bought my own 3 month subscription) and I’m going to gift my friends a subscription as well. Basically, every month you get to choose from a list of books that are recommended by various people in various fields. There’s a wide variety of books (either suspense, love, drama, biography) and each book comes with an explanation of why it was chosen. You can also choose to add additional books for an extra $9.99.

THIS MONTH I’m super excited about the subscription because they are offering the latest book by Paula Hawkins (writer of Girl On The Train) with any new Book of the Month subscription. So, you get your book of the month AND her latest book. Two for the price of one. Can’t be beat, right?

Up until May 21st, use the code WATER to get a three month subscription for $30 (that’s $10 a book) AND a free copy of Into The Water by Paula Hawkins. Or, if you’re an existing BoTM subscriber, you can add it for $9.99.


Because it’s just in time for Mother’s Day, if you gift a subscription to someone, you’ll receive a free month for yourself! Give a little something, get a little something, right? You can find out more of those details here.

Well, summer is coming, so…get reading! I’ve got a trip to Germany planned, so definitely going to be taking a few of these books along!

    That’s cool that you get a months product with the giving of a subscription to someone else. I’m a librarian and I’m all about the books.

  • I just finished reading a novel so I’m looking for a new book to read. I will have to check these out and see if there’s something I would like to read!

  • That is amazing. I love to read, but with two little ones the only books I have time for are audiobooks. I will have to remember this for when I get to read again.
