Fresh off my disappointing foray into Russian Lit, I was greeted by this surprise in the mail today!
Book of the Month is a monthly subscription website that allows you to choose from five different hardcover new releases each month. Selections are carefully curated by judges, and once you’ve selected your book you’ll receive a special hardcover edition accompanied by a note written by the corresponding judge.
Book of the Month’s selections are timely, exciting, and from a variety of genres. I was so excited when I saw that Amor Towles’ latest novel “A Gentleman in Moscow” was available this month and immediately snatched up my copy. I have a feeling it’s going to be the perfect mix of beautiful storytelling, wit, and early 20th century Russian politics. Who could ask for more?! (I spent two hours casually Googling the Bolshevik Revolution at work the other day… I have a problem.)
New Book of the Month selections come out October 1st! This is definitely one of my favorite book subscription boxes and I can’t recommend them highly enough.
