Book of the Month Club | September 2016

Happy September! It is that time of the month to let you all know the September selections for the Book of the Month Club. I’m very excited about these books. I’m trying to decide which one I want to read. I’m leaning towards Behold the Dreamers or The Couple Next Door. I will let you know which one I decide. Which one would you read?

Also, there is a special offer until 9/30/16. You can get a $5 for 1-month memberships with code READ5. That’s a hardcover for 5 bucks. Pretty great deal.

And the 5 books selected are:

A Gentleman in Moscow By Amor Towles


Behold the Dreamers By Imbolo Mbue


The Couple Next Door By Shari Lapena


The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo By Amy Schumer (Selected by Guest Judge: Andy Cohen)


All At Sea By Decca Aitkenhead

Thoughts:

I almost forgot to post this. I had a better day reading on day 5 than on day 4. Let’s be honest. If I had just read a page, it would have been better than day 4. I’m still reading both Eclipse and A Court of Mist and Fury. I’m not that far into A Court of Mist and Fury. In regards to Eclipse, seriously, Bella needs a new man. Both Edward and Jacob are on my last nerve.

I took a bit of a reading break on Wednesday. Also, it was more of what book I was in the mood to read. I’ve currently put Illuminae back on the shelf and picked up something else.

Thoughts:

I finished Harry Potter and the Cursed Chid FINALLY. I only had a little under 50 pages left in that book and I thought this would be the perfect time to finish it. I also finished Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake. I enjoyed that one.

Bout of Books 17 TBR

It is time for another readathon. Bout of Books 17 this time. Of course I am going to attempt to participate in it.

Bout of Books

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 22nd and runs through Sunday, August 28th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 17 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I’ve been thinking about what books to add to my TBR. There aren’t any challenges. Just read as much as you can. So I’ve decided to pick the below 4 books. I’m looking forward to this readathon and am excited! I shouldn’t be that busy throughout the week so I should finally have time to read during a reathon. It’s gonna be great!
