June’s Book of the Month

book of the month

So, I don’t imagine too many people are shocked to discover that Nalini Singh‘s Silver Silence was chosen as the Book of the Month. By a margin of 132 to 14. Yeah, pretty decisive, I would say. Coming in second was Gena Showalter‘s The Darkest Promise, and rounding off the top three was Jeaniene Frost‘s The Sweetest Burn. Did I mention there are only 12 days left until Silver Silence? Not like I am counting or anything. Honest.

    A mere 264 hours and 45 minutes until the digital edition shall be mine. (Not that I’m counting either). So close and yet still so far.

      I have the digital and the hardcover coming my way. I did the same for White Hot, but in that case I had the ARC, the digital AND the hardcover. So much nerd.

        • kaleigha says:

          I will most likely read the digital copy since my last few attempts to read a “book book” was sort of uncomfortable. Weird how fast my tastes changed.

      I always feel bad when there are the zero vote books, but I usually try and guess how the different books will do. Sometimes I get really surprised.

        Which actually begs the question – how do you decide which books to pick for BOTM? I mean apart from the obvious authors. For e.g. is it a conscious decision to include YA or is it based on your preferences. Not that there’s anything wrong, I’m just curious!

        • kaleigha says:

          I usually go for the ones that I hear the most talk about to try and keep things fair, or ones that people who comment here mention a lot. Long-standing authors with bigger fanbases also play a role, even if I haven’t read them myself. I do skip most of the young adult stuff now just because I am am way out of the loop on them, but for example I had several people recommend the Throne of Glass books, so I make a point of including them, or Cassandra Clare (who I have finally given up the ghost on – but not before I bought both the hardcover AND Kindle version of Lord of Shadows. Ugh).

            You know I hate YA even more than you (I never read (and liked) anything but Harry Potter), but I absolutely LOVE Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thornes and Roses trilogy. To me it didn’t really read YA (apart from the fact that the heroine is quite young in actual age, but she “reads” older). I’m going to read the Throne of Glass books next, I just needed a break after A Court of Wings and Ruin (the 3rd book in the trilogy) because the whole reading experience was so intense and I could not stop until I read all three books in less than a week (they are quite long). I am convinced that you would love them, too. The first book is a bit slow to start, but after that it really picks up and is non-stop excitement, action and emotion.

              I did like the first ACoTaR book, but for some reason never got onto the second one. I might revisit it soonish.

    Since the UK edition is coming out on a holiday, I will wait for that day to buy it. The 15th of June is Corpus Christi which is a public holiday in my country. (Incidentally, it’s also my youngest brother’s birthday.) I am planning to re-read Allegiance of Honour right before reading Silver Silence so I am counting down the days to the weekend before the 15th of June.

    I missed the voting for June but it looks like the one I would’ve chosen wasn’t listed. Bec McMaster’s next installment in her London Steampunk world is out later this month, The Mec Who Loved Me. Just preordered today!

    I wish that Gena’s LOTU didn’t come at hardcover first. But, since I hardly read LOTU now..waiting for the release of mass market version is the best.
