Book of the Month (BOTM) is a subscription box that sends you a new hardcover book as chosen by a panel of judges every month.
Subscribers are given a choice between five different book selections which will be revealed on their site on the first of the month. The books will include a broad range of genres and offer a mix of both fiction and nonfiction titles. The Book of the Month team reviews thousands of submissions from dozens of publishers, and works closely with the BOTM judges to select exceptional books that they think members will enjoy. If you don’t like the current month’s selections, you’re free to skip with no questions asked.

Let’s check out my December 2019 Book of the Month box!
The book was shipped in a small blue box with a white Book of the Month logo on top.
A peek inside!
The book itself was shrink-wrapped to a sturdy piece of cardboard to keep it from getting damaged in transit.
December’s five selections were:
- The Wives by Tarryn Fisher (domestic suspense)
- Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano (Contemporary Fiction)
- Long Bright River by Liz Moore (Mystery)
- The Glittering Hour by Iona Grey (Historical Fiction)
- Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston (Romance)
While I tend to go for the non-fiction/crime genres, I decided to switch things up this month by selecting the “domestic suspense” novel, The Wives.
Thursday’s husband, Seth, has two other wives. She’s never met them, and she doesn’t know anything about them. She agreed to this unusual arrangement because she’s so crazy about him.
But one day, she finds something. Something that tells a very different—and horrifying—story about the man she married.
What follows is one of the most twisted, shocking thrillers you’ll ever read.
You’ll have to grab a copy to find out why.
I must admit, I’m a bit intrigued…
Book of the Month is the perfect subscription for opening your eyes to great books that you may not have chosen on your own. The title I selected is currently on Amazon for $27.99 and isn’t even available until 12/30, so the BOTM price is clearly a better deal. 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can can get your first month for only $5! — Just use coupon code “FAM5” at checkout. (You can also save $10 on any 6 or 12-month gift subscription and get a FREE book for yourself with coupon code PERFECT10!)
