It’s March 1st which means it’s time for new BOTM picks!
If you have not yet given BOTM a try, there are several offers for new subscribers this month that are too good to pass up! All offers expire on 3/31
★ Marlena by Julie Buntin **A March Book of the Month Exclusive — only available through BOTM!**
Judge Steph Ortiz: “Buntin taps into something authentic, a core nugget so true that it feels like, in reading this novel, Marlena happened to me.“
★ All Grown Up by Jami Attenberg
Judge: Laia Garcia (Deputy Editor, Lenny Letter): “First I fall in love with the voice, dry and direct but not rude. I understand that the protagonist is not a heroine, but she is not not a heroine either.”
★ Exit West by Mohsin Hamid
Judge: Leigh Haber (Books Editor, O Magazine): “You can’t walk away from this novel and feel unchanged, because nothing I’ve read before has made me feel what it is to have your native city become an uninhabitable war zone.”
★ Dead Letters by Caite Dolan-Leach
Judge Sarah Weinman: “The clues that Zelda leaves for Ava are so much more than standard mystery misdirection. They are a window into the myths a family creates around one another.”
★ The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel
Judge Liberty Hardy: “He abandoned his car, hiked into the Maine woods, and lived in solitude for 27 years, without speaking to or touching another human being.”
