I’ve always been a voracious reader, and as my free time gets more and more scarce, I’m finding that I’m drawn to reading even more. I’d gladly fall behind on any tv show in favor of sticking my nose in a good book! When I saw the Book of the Month club on Instagram, I signed up without giving it a second thought.
I’ve impulse tried a few other subscription boxes in the last year- Ipsy (meh) and Boxy Charm (YES!), so of course a book subscription box would really round out my mailbox.
I was prompted to narrow my choices down to a few genres, and from there I was given the choice of five books for the month: Red Clocks, The Woman in the Window, The Music Shop, Two Girls Down, and As Bright As Heaven. This was a serious conundrum for me, because all five books sounded right up my alley! I have a hard time making decisions when faced with too many- just ask my sweet girlfriends who went bridesmaid dress shopping for my wedding and were probably ready to call it quits after my 900th indecisive moment.
I ended up snagging Two Girls Down and The Woman in the Window from month #1 (because two is always better than one, right?). I devoured Two Girls Down on my flight to New Orleans, and can’t wait to pick up The Woman in the Window. I’ve read a lot of suspenseful, psychological fiction lately, but Two Girls Down really felt original and kept a fast-pace the whole time. I really liked the characters, although a lot of them had similar names that kept me flipping a few pages back.
I’ve raved about the Book of the Month Club to a few friends and coworkers, and everyone seems to agree that books getting sent right to your house is a great way to 1. read more 2. stay accountable and 3. look forward to mail! Reading 12 books in a year?
Want to try it out? You can get your first month free if you use this link. If you have a hard time narrowing down your month, you can add a second book each month for only $9.99. What a deal! I’m in the middle of The Woman in the Window right now, and I stayed up way past my bedtime reading it last night.
Check it out and let me know what you think you’d choose? What are some other great titles you’ve read lately or are looking forward to?
