They have consistently offered amazing books and I'm always so happy when I get their book selection email on the first of every month. They put a lot of time and consideration into their selections and it really shows.
The only thing is, it's easy to fall behind on reading those BOTMs. No matter how excited I am to read it, BOTMs often play second fiddle to library books and review copies. They just sit there patiently waiting, sure I'll get around to them someday.
Thanks to my 2018 Reading Challenge, I have worked my way through a few but I still have amassed nine books I need to read, mostly due to book credits. (Did you know you can add extra books to your order? It's the best and the worst.) I've even skipped getting a book the last few months! Clearly something needs to change.
When @booknerdnative suggested a Book Of The Month Readathon in June, I was all in.
Ten days to focus on BOTMs sounds good to me. I'll be out of town starting that second weekend (heading to my hometown to celebrate my book release!) but I'm pretty sure I can get at least a few of them read.
Now I just have to figure out which ones to focus on. Work my way through the shortest books? Choose the ones I'm most excited about? Write down all the titles and pull one out of a hat?
Right now I'm leaning toward An American Marriage, The Astonishing Color Of After, and maybe The Couple Next Door. We'll see what I'm in the mood for come June 1!
