The September 2018 Book of the Month selections are here! Book of the Month is a monthly subscription that is $14.99. Members can add extra books to their boxes for $9.99 each. A new member can sign up for the introductory price of $9.99 (for their initial 1, 2, or 3 months).
Our August books are all about giving readers what they want—murder, music, and grit.
Subscribers can choose from the following selections:
❃ Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough
BOTM Quick take: Three women, one big secret, and the betrayal that threatens to destroy their lives.
❃ The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker
BOTM Quick take: A queen of Troy is caught between Achilles and Agamemnon when she is captured and forced into slavery in this ferocious retelling of The Illiad.
❃ The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock by Imogen Hermes Gowar
BOTM Quick take: A lowly merchant finds himself in possession of a surprisingly hideous mermaid in this romp through 18th-century London.
❃ November Road by Lou Berney
BOTM Quick take: A New Orleans mobster who knows too much, a young mother on the run, and the daring escape that might get them both killed.
❃ Fashion Victim by Amina Akhtar
BOTM Quick take: A murderously clever send-up of the fashion world and the girls who will kill to rule it.
Here’s how it works: Members will pay $14.99 when they sign up for a subscription that will renew monthly. Their first month is free, and their second month is covered by their upfront payment of $14.99. Then they’ll be renewed at the end of their second month (unless they cancel).
Members who sign up for 12 months will pay $149.99/year. That’s $12.50/book, instead of the standard price of $14.99.
