August 2017 @BookOfTheMonth Reviews: Fierce Kingdom, Killers Of The Flower Moon And 2 More Titles

August 2017 Book Of The Month Reviews On Novels And Nonfiction

Book Of The Month is a subscription service that sends you one hardcover book per month out of five selections for a low monthly subscription fee. You can add 2 more titles to your monthly delivery for $9.99 each, and the price overall is very cheap for full-size hardcovers.

Book Of The Month is not paying me to promote their service. I just love it so much that I’ve turned my monthly deliveries into a feature on my blog 🙂 I do encourage you to try it though, because if you like hardcovers it’s a great deal.

You can use my referral link to sign up if you’re interested in trying it. You’ll get your first three months for just $9.99 each plus a cute tote. And I’ll get a free book when you join. Win, win!

I had a pretty lucky month for my Book Of The Month selections. I ended up with two five star picks (Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips and Killers Of The Flower Moon by David Grann) and one solid three star pick (The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan). I also ended up with a bonus book (The Sisters Chase by Sarah Healey) because Book Of The Month sent it to me accidentally. Once I let them know, they shipped the correct book out to me asap and let me keep The Sisters Chase as well (great customer service). I ended up not loving it, but I’m not one to look a gift horse in the mouth. Read my full reviews below!

Links I Loved This Week – 07/07/17

Links I Loved This Week On Novels And Nonfiction

I’m going to try to start posting a Links I Loved This Week post every Friday again as well as keeping up with actual review/recommendation posts. Wish me luck! 🙂 You’ll see I’ve edited the format of the post slightly to provide more structure, so that I hope it’ll be a bit quicker for me to put these posts together going forward, while still keeping them interesting. I’ll still include my favorite Top Ten Tuesday posts when possible but the feature is on hiatus until August 15th for the moment.

This week I’ve been getting back in the habit of blogging for an hour or so every morning (it’s definitely bearing fruit), and I’ve been majorly relaxing thanks to this amazing 4 day weekend. I took my new beach tent (if you don’t have one, get one asap) out to one of Los Angeles’ beaches and had a mini read-athon of sorts, just me, some baguette and cheese and a bottle of rosé. I finished Omar Al Akkad’s amazing novel American War and started Startup by Doree Shafrir (two of my April 2017 Book Of The Month picks). By next Friday I hope to have finished Startup, read my third April 2017 BOTM pick The Oregon Trail by Rinker Buck, and read one of the books on my Net Galley back log.

Without further ado, here are this week’s links!
