  1. I picked Swimming Lessons, I wasn’t overly excited about this month but this book has me very intrigued. Plus it’s a little different than what I normally would pick and something about it not being released yet makes it even sweeter! Haha

  2. My choices this month are Swimming Lessons, You Will Know Me, and The Sun is Also a Star.

    Every month I say I’m gonna unsubscribe cause my TBR shelf is overflowing, but they just choose such great books…

  3. I chose Swimming Lessons. I usually always order 3 books but not this month. I wasn’t wowed by the options. Maybe if I read next month that some of you really enjoyed your books, I’ll order them for January.

  4. I guess I have just been disappointed in the last few months because there used to be at least (most months) one non-fiction choice or biography or cultural-history-of-something book in the selections. 🙁 I LIVE for those kinds of books. I wish they offered a switch for a past book, like if you don’t like your current selections you can switch one out for a prior book that was offered.

  5. Anyone else notice it’s all female authors this month :)? So excited by all of the titles, chose Swimming Lessons, Pull Me Under, and You Will Know Me, and picked to ship it now (or next business day lol). Between this shipment and the Powell’s Indiespensable #63 Moonglow arriving this week, too, I am one happy bookworm!

  6. Got two books this time (since it’s the holidays and books are always welcome)! I chose Swimming Lessons and Whatever Happened to Interracial Love. Love the exclusive early release and currently have a small obsession with short story collections.

  7. Is anyone else having problems with logging into their account?

    • Yes! After inputting my password, there’s a long stall and eventually a gateway timeout message in red.

    • I’m glad I’m not the only one! I’ll put in my login info and nothing will happen after I click the button

    • Same here! I emailed the customer service but haven’t heard back yet.

  8. I’m so psyched to see them branching out and picking a YA book! I’ve already read The Sun is Also a Star, but it was really great.

    I think I’ll go with Swimming Lessons this month and I’ll add on You Will Know Me. It looks like Swimming Lessons is an advance release, Amazon doesn’t have it coming out until February, so that’s pretty cool, too!

  9. Ugh these all look so good…how to pick only one!

  10. I’m not as psyched about this month’s choices compared to last month, but maybe that’s just because there’s less big-name-author recognition. I’m thinking I’ll probably choose Pull Me Under.
