For December 2015 I Selected The Magician’s Lie, let’s check out my selection!

I received this month’s Book of the Month selection courtesy of Book of the Month for the purpose of this review.
 Inside the airtight packaging is a note card from the Book Club Judge for this month’s selection. Each book has a selected/featured judge that handpicks the selections based on their personal tastes. For this selection, Whoopi Goldberg states this selection “[t]his rich tale will make you believe in magic”.  The Magician’s Lie: A Novel $16.51

Great Cover Art!

“This is a book in which storylines twist, spiral and come together again in an ending as explosive as a poof of smoke from your chimney…or a top hat.” ― Oprah.com

 About my thoughts:

The book is rather well-written, and flows precariously from one dialogue to the next! The terminology does a great job at enveloping the illustrative side to visualizing the environment sucking in the reader to hidden scenes and meanings! Settings like the Biltmore, Vaudeville circuits, and private train cars set the stage of various tales of magic in more ways then one! I’m about half-way through and I’m enthralled by this  ballerina students need to save her parents, and the sacrifices she makes.

Part of the perks of the Book of the Month membership is the Discussion forum! Here the subscribers are given priority access to the forum to share their thoughts on their latest book selection. December’s Discussion will open when all December shipments are received! However, subscriber’s can go ahead and submit their review or discussion under the section marked “All Other Books”.

I can’t wait to crack this book open and get started!

All-in-all, I feel this book club offers the subscriber the thrill of new book choices every month with the satisfaction of gathering with other like-minded readers for a low monthly cost ($16.99). My selection was on the low end of the retail pricing, but other books ranged well over $20! For $16.99 a month, I think that this book selection was spot on with my expectations! If you haven’t signed up for Book of the Month yet, this is a great time to start!
