I’m still working on getting caught up with my old Book Of The Month reviews and I’ve already read through all the March 2018 books I ordered, so I should have reviews for those up early next week. I may alternate newer with older months going forward as I get caught up, so I can read their more recent picks and review them closer to the actual release date.
Out of the three books I selected for February 2018, I was expecting to like The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah the best. It actually ended up being the one I rated lowest out of three. I really liked it at the outset – historical fiction, Alaska, a young bold protagonist, what’s not to like – but it kind of fell apart for me at the end. Keep reading to find out why, and also why I gave my other two February 2018 picks a higher rating.

Every month, I pick 5 nonfiction and 5 fiction books being released that month that sound like good reads to me, based on my personal preference in topics and genres, as well as advance reviews on Goodreads and Amazon.
Some themes in the titles I picked for this month include feminism, crime, historical fiction and identity. It’s always interesting how book releases that are popular in any given month sometimes seem to clump together easily by topic, in response to what is going on in society and what readers are therefore most interested in.
Two of the books are Book Of The Month picks for this month (they really hit it out of the park with their selections for February 2018), and many are also currently available on Net Galley, so there should be lots of options for your TBR list!

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!
When it comes to my April 2017 Book Of The Month selections, I enjoyed all 3, though I thought The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah and Into The Water by Paula Hawkins were more solid picks than Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane. Find out why in my review below! And don’t forget to enter my giveaway for a brand new copy of The Nightingale on Instagram and Twitter!
