Riot Read Monthly Book Club Subscription Review #RRD04
Riot Read is a monthly book club subscription box from Book Riot and Quarterly. They’ve made some changes to this box (seemingly based on feedback from subscribers) and I’m impresesd with the changes:
1) Added exclusive members-only Goodreads discussion group for the book

Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing their selections. The Riot Read team discussed why they picked Broken Monsters this month, gave a brief synopsis of the book, and also reminded readers to watch the Book Riot site for details on the live chat with author Lauren Beukes.
I love a book that I can’t put down, but I’ve never really read in the horror genre before, so I might have my husband try this out first and let me know if he thinks I can handle it. He’s a huge Stephen King fan, and the first quote on the Amazon page of this book is from him:
“Scary as hell and hypnotic. I couldn’t put it down…I’d grab it if I were you.” I don’t think I’ll need to do any convincing to get him to read it!
Here is a quick synopsis: A criminal mastermind creates violent tableaus in abandoned Detroit warehouses in Lauren Beukes’s new genre-bending novel of suspense.
Verdict: I’m so glad they lowered the price on this subscription, I can justify spending an extra $1.60 over what I’d pay at Amazon to get a new recommended book delivered every month! So far they’ve sent out a good variety in genres, and I’m excited to see what’s coming next month!
