It’s a big month for Book of the Month. Book of the Month is now offering more than 5 main picks a month! While I’m stoked about this, my TBR is not. It’s also going to make putting together a blue box every month a little bit harder. Even though there is only one debut this month, I’m hoping that this change allows them to start featuring quite a few more debuts.
Reminder that if none of these are speaking to you this month be sure to check out some of my Most Anticipated New Releases lists. If you’re looking for add-ons to put into your boxes be sure to check out my BOTM add-on recommendations, which I update every couple of months.
March MOST ANTICIPATED
March Main Picks
My March Box
This month I decided on four books, two of which I’ve already read. In addition I already have copies either physical or digital copies 8 out of 12 March picks. Booth and The Cartographers were on my March Most Anticipated so I jumped on adding to my box. Both Simone St. James and Rebecca Serle are auto buy authors for me and I was lucky enough to get Advanced Reader Copies of both. Neither is my favorite from the author but I still enjoyed both. See my reviews for both below:
I already have copies of The Verifiers, The Unsinkable Greta James, and Tell Me Everything. I have yet to read these three but hope to in the upcoming weeks. I have heard that Tell Me Everything is a fabulous new true crime though.
I also already have copies of Pieces of Her and Blacktop Wasteland, since they’re older releases. Both are great reads that I highly recommend! While Pieces of Her is already available to watch on Hulu, Blacktop Wasteland is being adapted into a movie with no set release date at this point.
I opted out of The Paris Apartment and Dating Dr. Phil. I haven’t been in a romance mood lately and have quite a few romances on my shelf already. In terms of The Paris Apartment, I use to enjoy Lucy Foley’s books, but I’ve been fairly disappointed in the last two. They’re your standard thrillers and are generally fast to read, it’s just something I think I’ll borrow from the library.
My only box regret is not adding The Love of My Life, the reviews have been great recently. I’ve already decided to add it to my April box.
That’s what’s in my box this month! Did we pick any of the same books this month? Let me know in the comments below or over on my Instagram HERE.
WHAT IS BOOK OF THE MONTH?
For those who haven’t heard of Book of the Month club or BOTM, it is a subscription program, similar to audible or other box subscription services, where you get (you guessed it) a new book every month. Each month members are given 5 different books to choose from. BOTM generally focusing on debut and emerging writers, and is known for having helped launch the careers of some of the most acclaimed authors in American literary history. In an attempt to read more books outside my favorite genres without having to siphon through all the duds, I decided to sign up for the monthly subscriptions. It costs me $14.99 per month, I choose 1 of the 5 books on the first of every month, and it’s delivered straight to my door. You can skip any month or roll your credits over to the next month, at any time. Since I started getting BOTM in 2018, I’ve really enjoyed some of the new authors I’ve been exposed to. If you’re interested in joining BOTM, I’ve added my referral code to the bottom of this post, which if you use, you’ll be able to get a discount on your first month (book)!
