Happy Friday friends! Today I am so excited to share with you all not only my latest and great book review but a new and amazing way you can learn about new books and get them sent right to your door!
Recently I have worked with a company called Book of the Month. They are a subscription based company that you can join/subscribe and each month get to choose a book of the 5/6 they have selected. Not only is this such a great way to expand your knowledge on new books, but now you get the opportunity to add to your bookshelves as well.
For the month of June I picked my book of the month, that being Calypso by David Sedaris. In one word this book was outstanding. I couldn’t believe how much I enjoyed it, and it wasn’t a genre that I would normally pick up either! I went for it (a bit apprehensively) and now can not imagine not reading this. Without giving too much away, the book is a at times dark, more often than not hilarious account of Sedaris thoughts and life after he buys a beach house in the Carolinas. Sedaris has such a purposeful and unique way of telling a story, it was hard to put this book down. Involving much reflecting and self-awareness, as a reader I felt I learned a little bit about myself as well after reading this.
I cannot express how excited I am about Book of the Month. As you all know I am a bibliophile at heart and being able to buy and read books is such a passion of mine. This opportunity I have been given to relate and work with a company that feels the same way as I do has been a dream and one I plan on continuing to live. Be sure to go and check out this brilliant company online of on their Instagram page to find out all that you need to do to sign up!
I hope you all enjoyed this post and be sure to check out this book and let me know your thoughts down below! Happy reading.
