I have been a member of Book of the Month for years. It is a monthly subscription box. I pay $15.99 monthly and can choose from a selection of early-release books. If you don’t like the choices or you don’t feel like reading, you can skip the month at no charge.
Today is August 1st, so it is time to take a look at my book options on Book of the Month. When I look over my choices, I refer to Good Reads to read about the book and any ratings and reviews to help me decide.
This month’s options are…
Here is my YouTube Version
*Small Angels by Lauren Owen. Genre is Horror, Fantasy, Gothic, Fiction-“A wedding in a small English village attracts a malicious spirit, forcing deep secrets to surface–a hypnotic tale of sisterhood, first love, and hauntings.”
*We Were Bright and Beautiful by Jullian Medoff. Genre is fiction, thriller, and contemporary.
“The acclaimed, bestselling author of This Could Hurt returns with her biggest, boldest novel yet–an electrifying, twisty, and deeply emotional family drama, set on Manhattan’s glittering Upper East Side, that explores the dark side of love, the limits of loyalty, and the high cost of truth.”
*Daisy Darker by Alice Feeney. Genre is Thriller, Mystery, and Fiction. “The New York Times bestselling Queen of Twists returns…with a family reunion that leads to murder.”
*The Many Daughters of Afong Moy by Jamie Ford. Genre is Historical Fiction, Fiction, and Magical Realism. “The New York Times bestselling author of the “mesmerizing and evocative” (Sara Gruen, author of Water for Elephants) Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet returns with a powerful exploration of the love that binds one family across the generations.”
*Girl Forgotten by Karin Slaughter. Genre is Thriller, Mystery, Fiction, and Crime. “From the New York Times bestselling author of Pieces of Her comes an electrifying thriller featuring newly minted US Marshall Andrea Oliver as she investigates a cold case with links to her father’s past”.
*The Devil Takes You Home by Gabino Iglesis. Genre Horror, Mystery, Fiction, Thriller, Crime. “From Bram Stoker, Anthony, and Locus award-nominated author, Gabino Iglesias, comes a genre-defying thriller about a father desperate to salvage what’s left of his family, even if it means a descent into violence–both supernatural and of our own terrifying world.”
*Bronze Drum by Phong Nguyen. Genre is Historical Fiction, Fiction, Asia. “A stunning novel of ancient Vietnam based on the true story of two warrior sisters who raised an army of women to overthrow the Han Chinese and rule as kings over a united people, for readers of Circe and The Night Tiger.”
Seven great selections this month. I skipped last month, so I chose a book this month. One of the books on the list is on my post Six New Release Books for August 2022 That Caught My Eye. That book is Daisy Darker by Alice Feeney. I can’t wait to read it.
