Book of the Month Canada Review: June 2023

Book of the Month is a monthly book subscription box. Every month they release 5 new books which they have narrowed down from hundreds of new releases (so you don’t have to).

So…..I did a thing! I signed myself up for a Book of the Month Canada subscription! I couldn’t help myself. One of the June books popped up on my Instagram feed and I had to sign up immediately. I wish I could remember which influencer it was, but someone was showing their June books and talking about the fact that She Started It (the book you will see below) is the perfect “creepy summer read”. I was SOLD instantly.

Here’s a peek at my June 2023 Book of the Month Canada…

She Started It by Sian Gilbert

“The party of a lifetime is nothing like what they expected . . .

Annabel, Esther, Tanya, and Chloe are best friends—or were, as children. Despite drifting apart in adulthood, shared secrets have kept them bonded for better or worse, even as their childhood dreams haven’t quite turned out as they’d hoped. Then one day they receive a wholly unexpected—but not entirely unwelcome—invitation from another old friend. Poppy Greer has invited them all to her extravagant bachelorette party: a first-class plane ticket to three days of white sand, cocktails, and relaxation on a luxe private island in the Bahamas.

None of them has spoken to Poppy in years. But Poppy’s Instagram pics shows that the girl they used to consider the weakest link in their group has definitely made good—and made money. Curiosity gets the better of them. Besides, who can turn down a posh all-expenses-paid vacation on a Caribbean island?

The first-class flight and the island’s accommodations are just as opulent as expected . . . even if the scenic island proves more remote than they’d anticipated. Quite remote, in fact, with no cell service, and no other guests. The women quickly discover they’ve underestimated Poppy, and each other. As their darkest secrets are revealed, the tropical adventure morphs into a terrifying nightmare.”

Final Thoughts

I literally just received my June Book of the Month Canada yesterday so I haven’t started the book yet but oh my goodness….the reviews on BOTM are awesome!!!

Review #1: Bullying in high school and 10 years later a “hen party” on a private island. Twists and turns that unravel lots of secrets proving that no one’s life is perfect. Revenge 10 years later- a great read.

Review #2: Was this predictable af? Yes, yes it was! Were the characters toxic & terrible? 100 percent! BUT I couldn’t stop myself from turning the pages. It read like a deranged RH reunion and I’m here for it!

Review #3: This one is fast-paced! I didn’t want to put it down, but I also didn’t want to read it too quickly! I figured out the ending very early on, but it didn’t matter. I still wanted to keep reading.

This is exactly the kind of book I needed right now. I just finished reading a cute summery beach read and now I am craving something a little more intense, but still with a Summer vibe. This will be perfect!

QUESTION: Have you tried Book of the Month? And if not….where do you prefer to buy your books?
