BookCase.Club is a one stop monthly subscription service for book lovers. Each month, you’ll receive 2 books curated for one of eight genres. For the Read to Me Case (children’s picture books), you’ll receive four books! With each new subscription, a book is donated to Books for Keeps in Athens, GA. This is an inexpensive book subscription – less than $15 including shipping per month! Subscriptions are available in 1, 3, 6, or 12-month terms and each one will automatically renew until you cancel. Gift subscriptions are also available.
Select your genre when you sign up. You can change the genre each month, but make sure to log in by the 10th to ensure your choice. If you have a multi-month subscription you will need to shoot them an email to switch. This month I am reviewing the “Booking for Love Case.”

I’m Still Here (Je Suis Là) by Clélie Avit (list price $25, currently $4.91) is translated from the French language in which it was originally published. A young lady is in a coma following an accident. As she lies in a coma, her family have to face whether or not to discontinue life support. Meanwhile, a stranger stumbles upon this young lady, and starts to grow close to her, and despite her coma she develops feelings for him! I can’t wait to see how this plays out.
Elsa has been in a coma for five months. With all hope of reviving her gone, her family and doctors are having to face the devastating fact that it might be time to turn off her life support… They don’t realise that in the past few weeks Elsa has regained partial consciousness; she knows where she is and can hear everyone talking around her bed, but she has no way of telling them she’s there.
Thibault is in the same hospital visiting his brother, a drunk driver responsible for the deaths of two teenage girls. Thibault’s emotions are in turmoil and, needing a retreat, he finds his way into Elsa’s room. Seeing her lying there so peacefully, he finds it hard to believe she is not just sleeping.
Thibault begins to visit Elsa regularly. As he learns more about her through her family and friends, he begins to realise that he is developing feelings for her. And when he talks to her, he can’t help feeling that she can hear his every word…
For Elsa, his visits are like a breath of fresh air. Here is finally someone who speaks to her as if she is a real life person. Who makes her laugh. And who gives her something to fight for…
And so begins a love story that might just save both their lives…
The Red Scarf by Kate Furnivall (list price $16, currently $13.60) is historical fiction and one of my favorite genres. It has mixed reviews, mostly because it has a bit of a fantastical twist to it, but overall the ratings are pretty positive. I know nothing about Russia and this story takes place pre-WWII so I guess I might just learn a thing or two.
Davinsky Labor Camp, Siberia, 1933: Only two things in this wretched place keep Sofia from giving up hope: the prospect of freedom, and the stories told by her friend and fellow prisoner Anna, of a charmed childhood in Petrograd, and her fervent girlhood love for a passionate revolutionary named Vasily.
After a perilous escape, Sofia endures months of desolation and hardship. But, clinging to a promise she made to Anna, she subsists on the belief that someday she will track down Vasily. In a remote village, she’s nursed back to health by a Gypsy family, and there she finds more than refuge–she also finds Mikhail Pashin, who, her heart tells her, is Vasily in disguise. He’s everything she has ever wanted–but he belongs to Anna.
After coming this far, Sofia is tantalizingly close to freedom, family–even a future. All that stands in her way is the secret past that could endanger everything she has come to hold dear!
I love that BookCase.Club sends picks that are highly rated, both on Amazon and Goodreads, and it is always worth more than the price paid for the subscription. This month my books were selling for $18.51, more than the price paid for the subscription plus shipping! BookCase.Club sends books that are usually a few years old – one book this month was published in 2008, the other in 2015. Either way, they were both new to me!
