Has anyone been thinking of joining Book of the Month??? I got this email to share with a friend - join for $5 - and wanted to share the link in case anyone had been on the edge. I have been a member since March 2018 and it is a simple joy every month to see the new selections and receive my box 📖 Let me know if you have any questions! I‘ll post the link in the comments.

My book club with friends picked our books for 2023!! Each month we will choose this selection or nominate any new finds, then vote on a final choice.

Which ones have you read? Which ones are faves?? Excited for this list, but it will be hard to wait for some of these!

This one was honestly so disappointing for me. I had such high hopes. It took me FOREVER to get hooked on the story (like until the last 100 pages), but then I stayed up late to finish because I couldn‘t put it down. I did not connect with the characters and kept wondering why there was so much premonition of what was to come instead of anything actually happening ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I don‘t want to say TOO much, but I did not enjoy this one as much as I expected 😬 - I was disappointed in the writing style and how the points of view confusingly jumped around at times - but there were parts I was into and I am hoping my #LMPBC members will find some things to enjoy 📖 This will be on its way to @Jerdencon soon! (Also tagging our other member @Christyco125 )

Any of these sound good for this round @Jerdencon @Christyco125 ?? #LMPBC

Christyco125 I would be good with A Most English Princess or The Postmistress. I think the The Midwife of Auschwitz would be difficult for me to make it through. 1mo
Jerdencon All sound good to me. I‘ll post my choices tomorrow. 1mo
kstadt929 @Christyco125 @Jerdencon I think I will go with The Postmistress then because it is shorter so it will be easier for everyone to fit it into their reading for the month (the other one is over 500 pages) ☺️ Excited to get started ! 1mo

🛑 STOP what you‘re doing and go pick up this book!!! You can thank me later. I don‘t usually enjoy romance novels, but a friend picked this one to read together and I absolutely could not put it down ! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and would give it more if I could

RenePenn Currently reading this one. I‘m not far in yet and haven‘t had a lot of reading time but I‘m hoping to make a big dent in it this weekend! 2mo
kstadt929 @RenePenn I stayed up late the last 2 nights because I couldn‘t put it down! I hope you enjoy it! I expect you will get to the point where you just HAVE TO know what happens next 📖 2mo

Typical Elin Hilderbrand novel that was tugging on my heartstrings all the way through. Mallory and Jake have a “same time next year” pact and this beautifully written story had me turning pages so fast…simply a wonderful read ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

How many is too many books for a 10 day cabin trip?? 🤔 How many do you think I packed?? 🤣 Starting this one, which came highly recommended!

Grrlbrarian What is a ‘too many?‘ There isn‘t one unless you‘ve made the floor collapse 😂 3mo
ravenlee The limit does not exist! 3mo
kstadt929 @Grrlbrarian @ravenlee 🤣 I love these answers!!!!! 📚 The floor is still standing and they did all fit in the car 🫢 3mo
LiteraryinLawrence Hope your trip is going well! For a 10 day trip I‘d say maybe… 6? How many did you bring? 3mo
kstadt929 @LiteraryinLawrence I brought 4….but we have a toddler 🤣 3mo

The blurb for this one begins “When Katy‘s mother dies, she is left reeling. Carol wasn‘t just Katy‘s mom but her best friend and first phone call.” They were planning a mother-daughter trip she now takes alone.
This has such a lovely cover and sounds really interesting…hoping it doesn‘t hit too close to home as my Mom was diagnosed with cancer just before thanksgiving, finished 4 rounds of chemo and is about to have a stem cell transplant ❤️💪🏻

marleed Wis#hing your mother well! 4mo
AmyG May all go as planned for your Mom. I have some friends who had this and they are doing great. Best wishes for her. 4mo
kstadt929 @marleed @AmyG Thank you both 💕 Great to hear your friends are doing great! They say this is the most successful treatment 4mo

It has been FAR too long since I have posted, but I‘m here to say: If you have not read this one, RUN and get it. Now. Thank me later. It is SOOOO GOOD! This was picked by someone else for the Mama Book Club I‘m in and OMG I‘m so glad it was chosen!! It is a roller coaster of emotions🎢 and I did not see the end coming at all!

This one was disappointing. It was hard to follow the plot as it slipped around quite a bit and some of the quotes between chapters left me confused ⭐️ However, finishing it up from the hammock (as little man naps!) on Day 1 of our 10 day cabin trip made the ending a little sweeter! 🌲

WanderingBookaneer Nice hammock! (edited) 13mo

** book not pictured with my reading buddy ** Finished up during morning nap today! This was different from other books I normally read, but I‘m so glad I gave it a shot. The language was hard to get into at first for me, but I ended up getting so attached to Adunni and invested in her story. I wanted the best for her and enjoyed cheering her on. Check this one out! #botm ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
