Hello and welcome to another BOTM unboxing. This month I actually had a very hard time picking between two of the books this month. I ended to just adding the two books to my box because I was going back and fourth for two days and I really could not decide. Anyway, here are the books I picked for my BOTM box this month.
So, in the past I have read Susannah Cahalan’s first book Brain on Fire, I really fell in love with her ability to tell a story. I knew she was a journalist and a writer, but I was never sure she was going to write again. Lo and behold, I sign into Book of the Month’s and saw she wrote another. I needed to pick it as my book, no if ands or butts. Honestly, if you have not read her first book, I highly recommend it. It is her own account of her brain turning against her and how she was able to gain back her life. It is really heart wrenching, raw, and fascinating. I can only guess that this will be just as good of not better.
The second book I picked was Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo. I really excited so see what she does with an adult novel. I have read some of her other books and really enjoyed them so I know she is an author I “get along with”. I have heard that there are some trigger warnings with this one, but I don’t know the particulars.
Overall, I am really excited by both of these books and I am so happy to have them on my TBR!
Have you read either of these books? What did you think?
Are either of them on your TBR?
