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.
Book of the Month ships via USPS.
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 also realized that the cover of the book has the month embossed on it. I selected the following Book of the Month book for May 2021:
~The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave: Once I started this book, I could not put it down. It drew me in quickly and I did not once consider putting it down. I absolutely do not want to ruin this for anyone who hasn’t read it yet, but the synopsis describes it as “heartbreaking”. I didn’t exactly find that to be the case. I found it to be more of a love story. A different kind of love story, but a love story nonetheless. I would 100% recommend this book to anyone. A perfect beach / pool read for sure!
From Book of the Month:
Before Owen Michaels disappears, he smuggles a note to his beloved wife of one year: Protect her. Despite her confusion and fear, Hannah Hall knows exactly to whom the note refers—Owen’s sixteen-year-old daughter, Bailey. Bailey, who lost her mother tragically as a child. Bailey, who wants absolutely nothing to do with her new stepmother.
As Hannah’s increasingly desperate calls to Owen go unanswered, as the FBI arrests Owen’s boss, as a US marshal and federal agents arrive at her Sausalito home unannounced, Hannah quickly realizes her husband isn’t who he said he was. And that Bailey just may hold the key to figuring out Owen’s true identity—and why he really disappeared.
Hannah and Bailey set out to discover the truth. But as they start putting together the pieces of Owen’s past, they soon realize they’re also building a new future—one neither of them could have anticipated.
With its breakneck pacing, dizzying plot twists, and evocative family drama, The Last Thing He Told Me is a riveting mystery, certain to shock you with its final, heartbreaking turn.
