Have you heard of BOTM yet?


What is BOTM?

BOTM stands for Book of the Month and it is a book subscription service that caters to every reader and carries every genre.

According to Wikipedia, in late 2015, in concert with the club’s 90th year, the club announced a major relaunch in its current iteration. Within two years, the club had grown its membership to more than 100,000 members, primarily millennial women, and the club’s presence on social media grew to over 300,000 Instagram followers. Approximately 75% of the club’s titles are by up-and-coming authors, and 80% of titles are fiction.

It’s being described as one of the best book description services available.

Why did I decide to sign up?

It’s only been recently that I came across BOTM on Instagram. When I saw all the  pictures that featured BOTM books I got curious. I love how everyone chats about their BOTM choice – it feels like a book community inside a book community. Everyone proudly shows off their BOTM book stacks. I immediately recognized quite a few of the BOTM selections like CIRCE, Little Fires Everywhere, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, The Great Alone, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, The City of Brass, Pachinko, How to Walk Away and many more.

I, myself, like reading outside of my regular authors and genres but it’s sometimes hard to chose which book to pick and extra hard to actually follow through.

How does it work?

For $14.99 per month (including shipping) you can pick one hardcover book out of four books that are being selected by BOTM judges each month. These four books cover four different genres. Below are the genres that have been picked in the past.

  • Contemporary Fiction
  • Literary Fiction
  • Memoir
  • Nonfiction
  • Thriller
  • Romance
  • Mystery
  • Historical Fiction
  • Young Adult
  • Fantasy & Sci-Fi

In case you don’t like any of the four choices you can easily skip the month without any charge. In case you would love to read more than one book, you can easily add on to your BOTM choice. Each additional book costs only $9.99. You can choose up to two additional hardcovers each month.

I love being part of this amazing community on IG. Therefore, I’m always looking forward to the first of each month to pick my BOTM. Seeing the books that have been chosen by readers, chatting about books that I loved or have on my tbr makes this entire experience even better.

Unfortunately for now BOTM is only an US subscription.
