It is that time of the month again so I am back to share my Book of the Month box for December. As usual I would like to begin with a brief description of this amazing subscription box. Book of the Month is a monthly book subscription box for which a panel of five judges select five books. With your subscription you may choose one of the five books selected for the month and if you choose, you may add up to two more for $9.99 each. All the books are new or pre-releases and hard back, and subscriptions range from $11.99 – $14.99/month depending on the duration of the subscription. In my opinion, it is an amazing deal.
Now on to the fun stuff, the books! Once again I ordered more than one book. I just cannot help myself! My first selection was The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor. I had seen this book before on NetGalley and tried to get an e-galley, but due to the popularity of this book I was unable. This thriller is about a group of young boys in 1986 who have leave secret messages for one another via chalk men figures. One day they find a chalk man left by someone outside their group that leads them to a dead body. Flash forward into the future where the friends think they have left this all in the past until they start to receive little chalk men in the mail and history gets brought into the present. I am really looking forward to reading this book!
My second choice for December was English Wife by Lauren Willig. This book takes place in New York’s Gilded age. A wealthy couple, Annabelle and Bayard, and their twin children have moved from London to New York and have everything they have ever wanted. But when Bayard turns up dead and Anabelle missing, presumed dead, the papers go wild. Is this a case of domestic violence, or was their a third party involved?
Some months the kind people at BotM send out some free goodies along with the books such as tote bags, wine cozies, coloring books, etc. This month we were sent a festive sheet of Christmas stickers for a box decorating contest. Winner gets a book subscription!
