One Day in December

Loved everything about this book. I could not put it down. I don’t usually go for rom-coms, but I said what the heck. So glad I went with this book. It was written very well.

So different

I'm not sure what I was expecting - I'm about halfway through and it is so different than their first book. I'm enjoying it and I feel like something is coming, but it's almost more unsettling in a thriller when it breaks the previous pattern of the author. Hopefully I'll finish tonight - I want to know where this is all going to end up.

I agree.. it took me way longer to finish this title whereas with "The Wife Between Us" I read that in a day and a half. I felt really lost with this book and when it ended I felt like there was no clarification. The twists are there but I think that it was a let down.
Hana (16)
I think it was a solid “like” for me in the end. Not nearly as twisty, I liked the end, but nothing I’m excited about. I finished it two days ago and i haven’t thought about it much since.

disapointed

I mean, I didn't hate no exit. It was definitely a page turner. It was just kinda disappointing. I thought that it was going to have more of a mystery element. Darby knew who the kidnapper was within the first 70 or so pages and the twists just sorta fell flat. I really liked the concept and it could have been done really well but I felt like this author just kinda put action in the place of actual substance and plot/character development.

A Little Bit of a Letdown...

I had high expectations based off of the book club description. It was a fast, tense, page turner for sure. I read it in one day. However; I could have done without the fart dialogue, animal cruelty and contradictory statements. It was a good read, but not as exceptional as I was hoping for!

My thoughts exactly! I had high expectations, especially bc it had such high ratings on amazon and goodreads (it claims to be an exclusive, but its been published since 2017 so idk) but it just kinda fell flat for me.

Read before buying into

Not worth the money or hassle. No information or customer support at all to explain or help on simpliest things. The books are ok, not a very good diverse amount of books definitely caters to a specific style or reader and I’m an open book lol. Overall, what could be a great tool and inspirational, I’d even use this too send books to friends but customer service needs to improve, like even a simple phone number to call. Thumbs down on this. If the company wants a cool concept to go off of incorporate school districts Battle of the books/book fairs. Could be a great concept but I feel a fail.

elizabeth (8)
This might just be me, but I kinda get the sense that most people on the discussion boards for the books that they've purchased have already "bought into" it...

Also, they have a FAQ just go to "more" and you'll see it and if u still need help with the customer service, I emailed them bc I was having problems with my account and they got back right away and were super helpful!

I agree that this isn't the best place to post concerns. I can't speak for all members, but I use the message boards because I love this service. If you want to complain or need help there is a contact us link at the bottom of the webpage. I've personally had great luck with customer service whenever I've had any concerns.

This may not be the right place to voice your criticisms of BOTM. If the service didn't work for you, that's unfortunate but not likely to convince anyone on the site's message board. Regarding selection, if you scroll through past books you'll find many many of the top books of the year offered before general release and at a savings over full hardcover price. It was the incredible selection and diversity that convinced me to try BOTM. Also, the company and their concept have been around since the 1920's as a monthly book subscription service, first by mail and now online. I think that's

I agree with you Emily. All organizations may have their weaknesses, but they shouldn't be voiced on the discussion board for monthly books. There are months when I dislike the selections for BOTM, but overall, I love the community and the opportunity I have had to read such amazing selections. I would encourage you to give BOTM another try - it really is a wonderful company!

WHICH ONE DO I PICK?!?!

GUYS! I can't choose what book they all sound really good! Like, December choices are stacked! At first glance I wanted to choose "An Anonymous Stranger" because I LOVED "The Wife Between Us" and it's the author's next novel! But then I kept reading the other choices and "No Exit" sounded so intense! Like a thriller where you have no idea if/who will die next! And "The Far Field" just sounds like a nice classic. I need to go on Amazon and read more the plot of the books to help with this decision. What choices are you guys picking?

I also made Anonymous Stranger my BoTM. I added on No Exit and One Day in December. I’ll probably see if I can add on Severance for next month, that’s how much I couldn’t choose. Loving this months choices.
Hana (16)
Agreed!! This was a great month. Honestly, Severance didn't grab my attention, but I heard something on the radio about it this weekend and now I might have to add it next month. Love BOTM!
Kayla (104)
I was torn this month also! I picked The Far Field as my BOTM and added No Exit to my box, too. I cannot wait for my box to arrive!
Becky (31)
Ohh - I got the same selections this month. :)
Ketzra (2)
Anyone else keep eyeing the mail tracker? First month for me waiting on my first selection and I’m acting like a child waiting for Santa!
damroberts744 (12)
I realize you'd either have to pick now or skip the month, but I picked Severance and added The Far Field.
RebeccaW (2)
I had the same issue! I will admit to skipping a month here and there because I did not like the selection but this month, HOW CAN YOU CHOOSE? I had to limit myself to two because of the holiday this month and went with Severance and No Exit, I can't wait to hear how everyone feels about the other books!
Ketzra (2)
I was torn between the far field and no exit. I selected the far field, because the writing style is so beautiful!
Alliedoll42 (1)
I chose Severance, and did The Far Field as an add on.
EmilyC (5)
I went with Severance as it’s not something I would normally pick up but I just read Station Eleven and adored that book so this sounds very similar with excellent reviews. Really regretting I didn’t add The Far Field as an add-on so that may go in the cart for next month though!
LBendotti (6)
I picked Severance. And then An Anonymous Girl and No Exit as add-ons. Couldn’t help myself! Will probably have The Far Field as next months add-on, well, depending on the months selection really...
CandaceMose (1)
I chose an anonymous girl and decided to add on no exit. I am so anxious to read both books and see what they’re all about! Why pick just one? Right? Lol
MellissaHodgson (4)
Yeah I finally went with An Anonymous Stranger and added on The Far Field because that book is 400+ pages so I know I'll be reading something for awhile! My co-worker is part of BOTM so she got No Exit and we will book swap when all done. I'll just have to check out Severance at the local library or something. And that last book, the romance one or whatever I could care less about so boom all good! It was stressful deciding though. Nice work BOTM!
