Megabooks @Reviewsbylola I‘m definitely going with that one! Thanks for the tag! 2mo
Cinfhen Thanks for tagging me @Reviewsbylola I‘m not really into any of these choices BUT huge props to @stuck.in.the.stacks for her awesomeness 😁 2mo
8little_paws Topics of Conversation sounds intriguing. I might go for that--I really need to catch up on a huge stack of books I have though. Thank goodness maternity leave is starting soon. I will have lots to read while holding my newborn! 1mo
stuck.in.the.stacks @8little_paws I am trying to catch up in time for the new year. The operative word is "trying" ? 1mo

There has been a lot of discussion about which books to pick.

So today on the blog we combed tons of reviews to give you the most in depth, spoiler free info about each pick. Plus we provided some comparable BOTM titles as a point of reference. Let us know what you're picking in the comments!

8little_paws Likely going to skip this month! I have a decent sized pile from November to get through, plus I haven't read my October selection yet, plus I borrowed a few BOTM's from my mom, PLUS I have a very tiny backlog from prior months that I think I want to knock out over the months of December and January and get into 2020 with ZERO backlog. 2mo

Wowza!!!! Thank you so much, #NetGalley, for what I think is the best YA fantasy that I have read so far into 2019... maybe at the very top for all categories for me as the #BestOf2019! I absolutely adored everything about this lushly written story. It blends history with modern ideas in a way that feels natural; it creates its own magic made for readers & every bit of it leaps off the page! I sobbed, I laughed with delight & tried to savor it!

TorieStorieS P. S. I hear on the #BOTMspoilers rumors that this will be a selection in the YA category for September- an amazingly impressive debut and I‘m looking forward to re-reading it already!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ 5mo

The Whisper Man | Alex North

Really enjoyed this creepy new thriller! The beginning is especially atmospheric and kept me up the first night I was reading it (I'm low key convinced someone is hiding in my house all the time so it hit a nerve). Some of the plot hinges on a few big coincidences but it didn't get too farfetched to take me out of the action. I'll keep an eye out for more from North in the future!

ozma.of.oz I love that cover! 7mo
erzascarletbookgasm I‘m waiting for the paperback edition. @Cathythoughts highly recommends this too. 7mo
Cathythoughts I thought this was so good 👍🏻Thanks @erzascarletbookgasm for the tag. I‘ll look out for more of his books too 7mo

TorieStorieS I‘m planning on reading this one this month from NetGalley... and I heard a #botmspoilers rumor that this is on the list for August! Check out @felinesandfiction for the full post! 😊 7mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @TorieStorieS not surprised, I think the last #ARC I got from Celadon ended up in a BOTM as well (A Nearly Normal Family). They were both great and I think they'll be pretty popular! 7mo
TorieStorieS Oh, I enjoyed that one too!! 😊 7mo

8little_paws And I do have like 6-7 botm to catch up on. Maybe I'll just focus on that instead. 8mo
nosferatoos I was so sure we were gonna get the new Jaime Attenburg since BOTM has her listed under “Repeat Author” even tho All Grown Up is her only book they offer 🤔 8mo
nosferatoos Oh jk that comes out in October why did I think it was July 😩 8mo
Reviewsbylola 💯 choosing Three Women! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 I‘ve been so excited about that one. 7mo
lele1432 Oh wow! I'm just now seeing this. I'm surprised but super excited that Three Women is a pick! I will probably get that and Gods of Jade and Shadow, which I've also been excited about. 7mo

I cannot, for the life of me, think of the user who shows us the next month‘s Book of the Month selections early. I‘m wanting a book but couldn‘t remember if I saw it on her April list... If anybody knows, I would appreciate it ☺️

Erinreadsthebooks I saw it on @felinesandfiction ‘s post 👍 10mo
Rachel.Rencher Search #botmspoilers in the hashtag search bar! A couple users spoil them I believe. 😊 10mo
Tera0707 @Erinreadsthebooks yes!!! I knew it started with an F. Thank you so much!! 10mo

silentrequiem @felinesandfiction Maybe but I need it ASAP! 10mo
