Book of the Month sent a crazy straw in the July box!  Subscribers can take a photo of the crazy straw with their box + book and post the photo to Instagram.  The member with the best photo will receive a free 3 month subscription to Book of the Month Club. Cool.

The Girls by Emma Cline

I chose The Girls by Emma Cline because I heard a lot of buzz on Booktube about this book.  I'm really looking forward to reading it!

Retail Value:  $27

Goodreads Rating:  3.68 stars

Goodreads Synopsis:

Northern California, during the violent end of the 1960s. At the start of summer, a lonely and thoughtful teenager, Evie Boyd, sees a group of girls in the park, and is immediately caught by their freedom, their careless dress, their dangerous aura of abandon. Soon, Evie is in thrall to Suzanne, a mesmerizing older girl, and is drawn into the circle of a soon-to-be infamous cult and the man who is its charismatic leader. Hidden in the hills, their sprawling ranch is eerie and run down, but to Evie, it is exotic, thrilling, charged—a place where she feels desperate to be accepted. As she spends more time away from her mother and the rhythms of her daily life, and as her obsession with Suzanne intensifies, Evie does not realize she is coming closer and closer to unthinkable violence, and to that moment in a girl’s life when everything can go horribly wrong.

I also received this letter from guest judge Maris Kreizman who chose The Girls as a Book of the Month selection for July.

Lastly, I received a Book of the Month bookmark with a quote from Louisa May Alcott!

My Thoughts:  I loved the selection for July and I had the urge to add on two more books at $9.99 each but I stopped myself because I have too many books to read at the moment.  The Girls looks very interesting and it's probably going to freak me out because anything having to do with cults freaks me out.  I think Book of the Month Club is a great subscription box to get the latest books at a really good price.
