Every selected book of the month comes with a card from the guest judge.

I chose Modern Lovers this month because it sounded like a book I would enjoy.  I have so many books to read right now but this sounds like a great book to read this summer.

Retail Value:  $26

Goodreads Rating:  3.57 stars

Goodreads Synopsis:

From the New York Times‒bestselling author of The Vacationers, a smart, highly entertaining novel about a tight-knit group of friends from college—their own kids now going to college—and what it means to finally grow up well after adulthood has set in.
Friends and former college bandmates Elizabeth and Andrew and Zoe have watched one another marry, buy real estate, and start businesses and families, all while trying to hold on to the identities of their youth. But nothing ages them like having to suddenly pass the torch (of sexuality, independence, and the ineffable alchemy of cool) to their own offspring.
Back in the band's heyday, Elizabeth put on a snarl over her Midwestern smile, Andrew let his unwashed hair grow past his chin, and Zoe was the lesbian all the straight women wanted to sleep with. Now nearing fifty, they all live within shouting distance in the same neighborhood deep in gentrified Brooklyn, and the trappings of the adult world seem to have arrived with ease. But the summer that their children reach maturity (and start sleeping together), the fabric of the adults' lives suddenly begins to unravel, and the secrets and revelations that are finally let loose—about themselves, and about the famous fourth band member who soared and fell without them—can never be reclaimed.
Straub packs wisdom and insight and humor together in a satisfying book about neighbors and nosiness, ambition and pleasure, the excitement of youth, the shock of middle age, and the fact that our passions—be they food, or friendship, or music—never go away, they just evolve and grow along with us.

My Thoughts:  I think this is a wonderful subscription box for book lovers.  I love how subscribers can choose which book to receive each month and it's awesome that you can get 2 additional hardcover books at $9.99 each.  It's also great that subscribers have the option to skip a month if they're not interested in the current book selections.  Book of the Month Club offers a great variety of genres and they usually have a book that interests me.
