Book of the Month

Book of the Month We pick five. You pick your fave. Our goal is simple: making sure you love what you read. For us, there’s no greater joy than discovering a new book we can get totally lost in—and we want to share that with everyone.

We search high and low for new books you wouldn’t have found on your own, narrowing it down to the top five each month. You pick your favorites, and we ship them to your door. No matter what you choose, you’re bound to be delighted. See what’s good this month at bookofthemonth.com

📷 @chelseaslilbooknook say, "This is a beautiful coming of age story, reminding you that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. It is thought provoking and the writing is lyrical. Touching on themes of colorism, a mothers love and a womans purpose, this book is all around a deep story."

📷 @theopinionatedreader says, "First, I’m going to say I have no idea where JoAnne Tompkins has been hiding. HOW in the world is this a debut novel?! This is one of the most beautifully written novels I have ever read. The writing is IMPECCABLE. The story is SO complex but interwoven so well. It blew me away. Second, I will say do not expect to blow through this. It is a slow burn and not for everybody. It is NOT a happy book and very character driven (so, my favorite kind of book). I freaking loved it. I want something that tears my soul apart, so here we go. So powerful, so many quotable moments, this was truly near perfection, but the ending had me saying WHAT?! I needed more 😭😭😭 I still wholeheartedly recommend this book yall."

I loved learning so much about the Philippine culture and food; with the added touch of food - PERFECT, looking forward to the second one in the series."
