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.
I received all of this month’s books, but decided to read How Not to Die Alone by Richard Roper.
~How Not to Die Alone by Richard Roper: I just can not get into this book. I started it and have probably picked it up and put it down half a dozen times. I am maybe 1/2 way through and will likely end up finishing, but I am not sure when. I do want to know what happens with Andrew and how he gets himself out of this mess he is in though! I read some reviews on Goodreads and a few mentioned that it ended better than it started (the beginning does drag), so maybe I need to get back into it sooner rather than later.
Andrew’s been feeling stuck. For years he’s worked a thankless public health job, searching for the next of kin of those who die alone. Luckily, he goes home to a loving family every night. At least, that’s what his coworkers believe.
Then he meets Peggy.
A misunderstanding has left Andrew trapped in his own white lie and his lonely apartment. When new employee Peggy breezes into the office like a breath of fresh air, she makes Andrew feel truly alive for the first time in decades. But telling Peggy the truth could mean losing everything. For twenty years, Andrew has worked to keep his heart safe, forgetting one important thing: how to live. Maybe it’s time for him to start.
