I love to read. I’m a long time reader and I’ve always, always loved to read. But, truth be told, the last couple of years, I’d let my joy of reading kind of fall by the wayside. I’d prioritized other things and I realized that made me sad. Back in 2019, I decided to prioritize reading again and it has made a world of difference for me. I got an Audible subscription, I made sure my library card was up to date, and I began carving out time for me to actually do something I really enjoy: read. I read 40 books in 2019 and this year I set my goal at 45 and I’m already at 51! Well, last year I discovered Book of the Month, had a free 3-month trial and decided to give it a try. I really liked it, but ended up not continuing after 3-months because for some reason, I couldn’t justify the expense… but after that, I missed it A LOT. SO, when COVID hit back in March, I decided… “You know what? TREAT YO’ SELF, MOLLY” and I resubscribed to Book of the Month and haven’t looked back.
It is, legit, one of the best things I’ve done in 2020. I look forward to my Book of the Month box every. single. month. I’ve discovered new genres I love (turns out I really like historical fiction!), I’ve discovered new authors I’m a fan of (Emily Henry, Brit Bennett), and I’ve read stories that made me laugh, cry, get angry, and everything in between.
Book of the Month is a monthly subscription box for… BOOKS! Each month, there are five “top picks” (mostly new or advance releases!) from amazing authors that are vetted by a team of avid readers. There are also “add ons” each month that you can add into your box. You can receive up to three books each month! Your first month’s book is just $9.99. After that, it’s $14.99/month… additional books are only $9.99 a book – which is WAY below the typical price of a book in a bookstore.
Book of the Month was actually started back in 1926(!!!) and so they’ve been around a LONG time and have a pretty amazing track record of picking incredible books.
You also earn rewards for each box you receive and eventually you can earn BFF status where you get a free book during your birthday month!
You can skip a month at ANY time! You can also cancel at any time!
Name a genre and they have it! Fiction, non-fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, romance, thriller, horror… you name it! I’ve really gone outside my comfort zone and fallen in love with some books this year that I never thought I’d love.

Seriously, if you love to read (or even if you’re just a light reader), Book of the Month is amazing and I can’t recommend it enough! It’s truly been such a joy for me to do this year and I’m so grateful I decided to “treat mah self.”
