I'm still learning around here, so I didn't know what it took to be book of the month. That's definitely good to know. I am going to have to ponder this one a bit more. Most of the books I read are part of a series. I don't do that on purpose, that's just how it turns out.

Having read this one as soon as it was made available, I fully support this nomination. I have read a few Rushdie but this tops off as one of my favourites. A complicated web of interconnected stories and characters, different "universes", powers, and unusual occurrences pulls the reader into the story at each page. Pick this one!

Yeah, would be nice to see!

The Woman in the Woman bu A.J. Finn should be BOTM because this psychological thriller will keep the reader guessing the way through the book. Additionally, it spawns great questions about mental health, internet relationships, love, loss, and much more!

It already was the BOTM: Orphan train .
