For April, subscribers picked from the following 5 books:
I’m reviewing The Love Interest.
Book Summary from Amazon:
There is a secret organization that cultivates teenage spies. The agents are called Love Interests because getting close to people destined for great power means getting valuable secrets.
Caden is a Nice: The boy next door, sculpted to physical perfection. Dylan is a Bad: The brooding, dark-souled guy, and dangerously handsome. The girl they are competing for is important to the organization, and each boy will pursue her. Will she choose a Nice or the Bad?
Both Caden and Dylan are living in the outside world for the first time. They are well-trained and at the top of their games. They have to be – whoever the girl doesn’t choose will die.
What the boys don’t expect are feelings that are outside of their training. Feelings that could kill them both.
I had to pick this book! The plot is so unique! (Or at least I haven’t come across any other book like this in my YA reading.)
I finished this book in two days. It’s one of those stories that grabs you immediately and I didn’t even take a break until I got to the third section. (The first two parts of the book held my attention more than the last part.)
And while I wish some parts/characters had been more fleshed out, I would definitely read a book about Natalie’s origin story!
Verdict: I’m very pleased with the value of my Book of the Month subscription. The prices are better than Amazon for new hardcover releases, and they always feature a good mix of popular new books. (In this case, the book I picked won’t even be released until May 16th!)
And I love that you can skip any month you aren’t interested in, and you can also buy books from previous months as add-ons for $9.99.
Plus I love that I could get this book before it is even released to the public for sale!
