Book of the Month Review April 2018
Book of the Month is a monthly book subscription box. Every month they release 5 new books which they have narrow down from hundreds of new releases (so you don’t have to). Books are announced on the first of the month, and members have six days to decide which book they would like to receive. Monthly subscriptions include one book, but members can purchase up to two additional books each month for $9.99 per title. They kindly sent us this box for review.
Book of the month has made me realize something……a good book and a cup of tea is a great way to lift one’s spirits on a bad day. Getting lost in a good book is a stress reliever for some, a way to spend a quiet moment alone for others, and an excuse to slow down for most. I have realized I need to cherish my time spent reading because there may be a time in my life that doesn’t allow for an afternoon curled up in my favourite chair…….but I have also realized that I should always make an effort to carve out at least 15 minutes to sit down and get lost in a book.
Here’s a look at my April selection…..
Our Kind of Cruelty by Araminta Hall
This is a love story. This is a tragedy. This is a book about a break up so bad that when you put the pieces of the love story back together, what you get is MURDER …
Mike knows that most of us travel through the world as one half of a whole, desperately searching for that missing person to make us complete.
But he and Verity are different. They have found each other and nothing and no one will tear them apart.
It doesn’t matter that Verity is marrying another man.
You see, Verity and Mike play a game together, a secret game they call ‘the crave’, the aim being to demonstrate what they both know: that Verity needs Mike, and only Mike.
Verity’s upcoming marriage is the biggest game she and Mike have ever played. And it’s for the highest stakes.
Except this time in order for Mike and Verity to be together someone has to die …
Book of the Month Review April 2018 – Final Thoughts
I have to say it……I think this is the most excited I have been about Book of the Month since last Fall. The April collection is pretty amazing. So much so, I had trouble deciding which book to start with. But…..at the end of the day I decided to go with Our Kind of Cruelty by Araminta Hall. I never really considered myself a love story kind of gal, but a love story mixed with a little suspense and a little mystery is something that grabs my attention and keeps hold of it. Our Kind of Cruelty is split in to three parts and I’m almost through the first part. So far I am LOVING it and am having trouble putting it down. It’s the kind of book that makes me want to take a day off work to read and drink coffee. Come to think of it, this is probably one of my favorite Book of the Month selections thus far. The fact that I am almost halfway through the book and only started it yesterday says a lot. Now the big question…..which one to read next??
