Subscription Box Review: Book of the Month Club – November 2016

Book of the Month Club is a subscription service that has been around since 1926!

Each month on the 1st, BOTM’s 4 judges and 1 surprise guest judge each nominate their book choice for the month. Then, you have until the 6th of the month to choose which book you wish to be the one sent to you, or you can also skip that month if none of the options appeal to you! You also have the option to choose books from past months choices, as well as a special list of some of the judges favorite books from any genre. The monthly selections are typically literary fiction, so just be aware of that if that is a genre that doesn’t particularly interest you.

Subscriptions start at $14.99 per month, and you can also add up to 2 extra books to your box for $9.99 each. All books are hardback and have the BOTM logo on them as well. Each box comes with a letter from the judge explaining why they chose that book, a BOTM bookmark, and a little bitty gift as well.

San Francisco is about to receive the biggest delivery of MDMA to hit the West Coast in years. Raymond Gaspar, just out of prison, is sent to the city to check in on the increasingly erratic dealer expected to take care of distribution. In Miami, the man responsible for getting the drugs across the Pacific has just met the girl of his dreams—a woman who can’t seem to keep her story straight. And thousands of miles away in Bangkok, someone farther up the supply chain is about to make a phone call that will put all their lives at risk. Stretching from the Golden Triangle of Southeast Asia to the Golden Gate of San Francisco, Every Man a Menace offers an unflinching account of the making, moving, and selling of the drug known as Molly—pure happiness sold by the brick, brought to market by bloodshed and betrayal.

Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality they slip gradually from obsession to corruption and betrayal, and at last – inexorably – into evil.

What are you currently reading?

Corrupt Me by Jillian Quinn

Moon Chosen (Tales of a New World, #1) by P.C. Cast

I’m still making my way through both of these books. I have kind of been neglecting them the past few days, because I picked up and then couldn’t put down A Thousand Pieces of You. However, I plan to finish both of them in the couple of days. Corrupt Me is everything a good romance should be! Moon Chosen is definitely an interesting and unique read so far.

A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird, #1) by Claudia Gray

This is the December BOTM for Hype or Like Friday… Y’all, it was soooo good! I did not want to put it down because I had to know what was going to happen next. I am dying to get my hands on the rest of this trilogy to see how it all ends. And that Paul is the cutest! I just love him.


What do you think you’ll read next?

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling

The Architect of Song (Haunted Hearts Legacy, #1) by A.G. Howard

So I hope to finish both of these before the Holiday Booktube-a-thon on the 29th! I think I can do that because Fantastic Beasts should be a really quick read that I can knock out in less than a few hours. I’m super excited about Architect of Song because I just love Howard’s writing, and I’ve read some great reviews of this one. Who else cannot wait for her newest book, Roseblood, to be released next month?! I mean, a retelling of Phantom of the Opera? I am soooo there!


What are y’all currently reading? Have you read any of the books on my list? What did you think of them? Are you participating in any read-a-thons during the holidays? Leave a link to you WWW Wednesday posts in the comments below!
