  1. I chose Maid, The Night Tiger and Silent Patient. Could be an interesting beginning to a year of reading.

  2. I got 3 books! They all look pretty good

  3. Hmmm I was so unexcited about this month’s picks! Guess it’s just me. I skipped this month.

    • I agree! They don’t look like bad books, but they’re just nothing I’m interested in. It’s a skip for me too.

  4. So excited for the picks this month. I have had this sub for about 3 years and the last year or so have been underwhelmed and felt they were stuck I a rut of the same 5 books over and over. I like the choices this month and will actually be getting more than one!

    • Yeah, I just canceled because I had skipped so many times. Finally used my last credit for Dec. this used to be my favorite sub. ☹️ Once they switched to more thriller and mystery heavy it wasn’t a good fit.

      • I feel the same way. I’ve been a subscriber for almost 4 years and the past year has been pretty eh. There used to be a lot of new-release buzzy literary fiction, and now it’s lesser-known fiction and lots of mediocre thrillers. Just not into it.

  5. I gave this subscription to my mother-in-law for a Christmas gift and she went bananas over it! I wish I’d known about the free book then!

  6. Ooh, first time in a long while where I’m interested in several. Great start to 2019.

    • I don’t have a subscription but always read the spoilers on MSA and this is the first time I feel like I actually want to subscribe.

    • I agree! I’ve liked about half the books I’ve gotten over the years but this month is great! I got the Night Tiger and am considering adding the Silent Patient.
