Book of the Month is a monthly book subscription service. Each month their panel of Judges selects a limited number of exceptional books to offer to their members. They announce their New Selections on the first of the month, and members have six days to decide which book (or books) they would like to receive. They ship books to all of their members at the same time, so members can read and participate in their discussion forum as a group.
Disclosure: This complimentary box was received for review purposes. All opinions are my own, and no compensation was received.
Book of the Month ships via USPS on the 6th day of each month.
Books always come neatly packed and in perfect condition.
The jackets contain a BOTM logo, and the back shows the month the book was selected.
This month’s selections all looked great (they always do), but I am going to talk about Still Me.
❃ Still Me by Jojo Moyes: I cannot even tell you how excited I was to get my hands on this book. I think I finished it in 3 days. I read both Me Before You and After You, and thought it was better than After You, but not quite as good as the first in the series (Me Before You). I don’t necessarily think you HAVE to read both of the others to “get” this book, but there will be times you are left wondering who / what they are referring to. I never found this book to drag on and really, really hope there is a 4th in this series so we can keep up with Ms. Clark!
From the Publisher:
Louisa Clark arrives in New York ready to start a new life, confident that she can embrace this new adventure and keep her relationship with Ambulance Sam alive across several thousand miles. She is thrown into the world of the superrich Gopniks: Leonard and his much younger second wife, Agnes, and a never-ending array of household staff and hangers-on. Lou is determined to get the most out of the experience and throws herself into her job and New York life within this privileged world.
Before she knows what’s happening, Lou is mixing in New York high society, where she meets Joshua Ryan, a man who brings with him a whisper of her past. In Still Me, as Lou tries to keep the two sides of her world together, she finds herself carrying secrets—not all her own—that cause a catastrophic change in her circumstances. And when matters come to a head, she has to ask herself, Who is Louisa Clark? And how do you reconcile a heart that lives in two places?
