February 2022 | BOTM Predictions

January is flying by and because I skipped my January BOTM box (gasp), I’m not so patiently waiting for February releases to drop! Even with February being the shortest month of the year, the list of books I’m excited for releases in February is not short. I’ve been lucky enough to received a bunch of…

January 2021 Book of the Month

The first books of the year have landed! At least from everyone’s favorite little blue box company, Book of the Month. To kick off the year, BOTM is serving up primairly debut authors, which you guys know I love! We’re also seeing 1 repeat author, 1 very famous author but 5 out of 7 books…

A Flicker in the Dark

Chloe Davis has spent her whole life trying to fix herself, and now as a 32 year old psychologist she helps others to fix themselves. While she’s tells herself she’s doing better these days, her family’s past is never far from her mind. Twenty years ago, her father kidnapped and killed six girls in their…

December 2021 Book of the Month

The final month of 2021 has started. I’ve said this before, but this year has flown by, especially the second half of the year. December is always such a toss up when it comes to BOTM picks. December is a fairly light publishing month due to the holidays and so we tend to see some…

BOTM Book of the Year | 2021

The votes are in and Kristin Hannah’s The Four Winds is Book of the Month’s Lolly Winner! What is the Lolly award, you might ask? “The Lolly” is a tribute to Lolly Willowes by Sylvia Townsend Warner, the very first book ever selected by Book of the Month back in 1926. At the time, BOTM judges voted…

November 2021 Book of the Month

Two months left in the year and Book of the Month is putting out a ton of books for November. November is the unofficially non-fiction month of the year. Maybe Non-fiction November is official, I’m not sure, but it is the month I tend to focus on reading more than just 1 non-fiction book. Even…

The Keeper of Night

I’m a huge fan of YA fantasy, but I think I’ve decided I’m not a huge fan of fantasy duologies. I have started to notice, at least in the duologies I have read recently, is a big issue with pacing. Most fantasy stories need time to develop and establish world-building. I find that the first…

The Ex Hex

Do you love a good witchy read with all the Hallmark vibes? If you answered yes than you need to pick up The Ex Hex before Halloween this Sunday! If you follow me than you’ll know I’m not a huge romance reader. I like the occasional romance but I’m more of a Mystery/Detective/Fantasy reader. Life…
