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 Other People’s Houses.
❃ Other People’s Houses by Abbi Waxman: I started this book as soon as I got the box and I LOVE it. I am about a quarter of the way through and am having trouble putting it down at night. I don’t *think* that any of the things happening in this book are happening in my little neighborhood, but then again, you never know what is happening in other people’s houses. It’s an easy read and if you want to start BOTM and aren’t sure what book to pick in March, this is it!
From the Publisher:
At any given moment in other people’s houses, you can find … repressed hopes and dreams … moments of unexpected joy … someone making love on the floor to a man who is most definitely not her husband …
As the longtime local carpool mom, Frances Bloom is sometimes an unwilling witness to her neighbors’ private lives. She knows her cousin is hiding her desire for another baby from her spouse, Bill Horton’s wife is mysteriously missing, and now this …
After the shock of seeing Anne Porter in all her extramarital glory, Frances vows to stay in her own lane. But that’s a notion easier said than done when Anne’s husband throws her out a couple of days later. The repercussions of the affair reverberate through the four carpool families—and Frances finds herself navigating a moral minefield that could make or break a marriage.
