This might be the end of our Book of the Month theme, but BOTM picks five new selections every month, so you'll never run out of new and exciting books to read. Remember, use our code WOMEN for a 3-month subscription of BOTM for 9.99 a month AND get a free tote (we promise, the tote itself is worth it).
We still have some stellar BOTM picks on our TBRs, so here's what we'll be reading over the next few months!
Pull Me Under by Kelly Luce
Liberty Hardy has got to be one of my favorite bookish nerds in all the world. She also happens to be a BOTM judge, so when picks a book I take notice. Rio Silvestri stabs a when she is twelve. Later she leaves Japan and makes a new life for herself in America. There's more to this story, but let's be honest; I don't need to say anything else. We're all hooked already. - K
Swing Time by Zadie Smith
Before I ever read Zadie Smith, I watched a YouTube video of a discussion she had with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I read White Teeth first and eagerly awaited Swing Time. It's her first novel written in first person, so it has a little different feel than her other books, but it's just as immersive and compelling. - A
The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yun
If you recognize this cover, it's because The Sun Is Also a Star has been EVERYWHERE--all over BookTube, Bookstgram, and basically anywhere else you can find book recommendations. And for good reason: this novel tells the story of young love in the face of incredible odds. - K
The Mothers by Brit Bennett
Earlier this year, I had the chance to hear Brit Bennett talk about her incredible debut novel. It took her several years and many drafts to complete it and it shows in this carefully crafted story about what it is to be a mother. - A
All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood
Winner of BOTM's 2016 Book of the Year, All the Ugly and Wonderful Things is described as "the ultimate noir fairytale." A girl is living with her father who runs a meth lab and later in life falls in love. Will they stay together? Why is she living with a man who makes drugs? I hope to learn the answers to all these questions and more. - K
The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley
A long time ago, in a classroom far, far away, Victorian literature was the love of my life. Even though I don't read it as much as I used to, it's hard for me to resist a Victorian/steampunk novel. This one is currently queued up on my Kindle and I hope to get to it soon. It's the story of a mysterious watch with mysterious powers and its even more mysterious maker. - A
