August 2017 – Book of the Month

Rating: 5/5

Price: Well, it depends! It’s basically $10 USD a month and you can get a subscription plan to save more money, but you can also choose to spend more money per month depending on the books you want! Each additional book is $9.99 USD each, which is really a steal for some of these books, and you get free shipping. You can choose between a 1-month, 3-month, 6-month and 12-month. The cost of the 1-month plan is $16.99, the 3-month plan is $44.97 ($14.99 per month), the 6-month plan is $83.94 ($13.99 per month) and the 12-month plan is $143.88 ($11.99 per month). (The 1-month plan is no longer available to new members.)

Ships: Only in the USA at the moment.

Hi guys! I’m back again with another Book of the Month box! However, this month I had only purchased one book. The reason being that I have about 300 books unread in my home right now and because I wanted to see what the options were next month. BUT, I could not pass up this book when I saw it! It’s called Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips.

The zoo is nearly empty as Joan and her four-year-old son soak up the last few moments of playtime. They are happy, and the day has been close to perfect. But what Joan sees as she hustles her son toward the exit gate minutes before closing time sends her sprinting back into the zoo, her child in her arms. And for the next three hours—the entire scope of the novel—she keeps on running.
Joan’s intimate knowledge of her son and of the zoo itself—the hidden pathways and under-renovation exhibits, the best spots on the carousel and overstocked snack machines—is all that keeps them a step ahead of danger.

A masterful thrill ride and an exploration of motherhood itself—from its tender moments of grace to its savage power—Fierce Kingdom asks where the boundary is between our animal instinct to survive and our human duty to protect one another. For whom should a mother risk her life?

The package also came with a cute bookmark with a blurb as to why the panelist chose the book. The book retails for $15 on Amazon.

Verdict: While I was charged a dollar for shipping (oh no a dollar!), I still feel that I got a fantastic deal on this exciting thriller! I can’t wait to dive into this book! Maybe next month I’ll order more books, since they all come in hardback for $10 each and they’re all fairly new releases! This site is really a nice way to get cheap new releases and find some that you wouldn’t normally purchase! Check them out today!
