December Book of the Month Review and Coupon

Subscribing to Book of the Month again was one of the best choices I made this year! I love this subscription. It's always so much fun to pick out a brand new book each month.

*Disclaimer: This box was purchased by See, Shop, Love!

Book of the Month was founded in 1926 and has been sharing great new reads with people ever since. The current iteration of the subscription allows you to choose from five new releases that are chosen by a panel of judges each month.

Your first box is $9.99 per month (keep reading to see how you can get your first box for only $5, though) and after that you'll be charged $14.99 per month for a book credit. You can skip any month and the credit will roll over to the next month. After 12 boxes you'll be a member of their BFF Club, which includes an extra credit during your birthday month and perks like a free tote bag with book pocket.

My selection for December was Long Bright River by Liz Moore, and I decided to add No Exit by Taylor Adams to my box. You can add on as many books as you want to your monthly shipment for $9.99 each.

Here's a synopsis for Long Bright River:
In a Philadelphia neighborhood rocked by the opioid crisis, two once-inseparable sisters find themselves at odds. One, Kacey, lives on the streets in the vise of addiction. The other, Mickey, walks those same blocks on her police beat. They don't speak anymore, but Mickey never stops worrying about her sibling.

Then Kacey disappears, suddenly, at the same time that a mysterious string of murders begins in Mickey's district, and Mickey becomes dangerously obsessed with finding the culprit--and her sister--before it's too late.

Alternating its present-day mystery with the story of the sisters' childhood and adolescence, Long Bright River is at once heart-pounding and heart-wrenching: a gripping suspense novel that is also a moving story of sisters, addiction, and the formidable ties that persist between place, family, and fate.

And for No Exit:
On her way to Utah to see her dying mother, college student Darby Thorne gets caught in a fierce blizzard in the mountains of Colorado. With the roads impassable, she’s forced to wait out the storm at a remote highway rest stop. Inside are some vending machines, a coffee maker, and four complete strangers.

Desperate to find a signal to call home, Darby goes back out into the storm . . . and makes a horrifying discovery. In the back of the van parked next to her car, a little girl is locked in an animal crate.

Trapped in an increasingly dangerous situation, with a child’s life and her own on the line, Darby must find a way to break the girl out of the van and escape. But who can she trust?
I decided to start No Exit first because it was shorter and it's excellent so far!
  • Visit Book of the Month to subscribe: first month is $9.99, no coupon needed
    • Use coupon code FAM5 to get your first book for only $5
Bottom Line: Book of the Month would make a great gift for anyone who loves to read. The selections are always excellent and you can't beat the price of $14.99 for a brand new hardcover book!
