The winners of May 2015's BoTM are:
- FANTASY: The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker
- SCI-FI: Vicious by V.E. Schwab

Book discussion may start at ANY point during the month. There will also be 'overall' discussion threads as more members finish the books - anyone can create these!
Have fun reading and discussing! :)

My local library had it available and I was able to place it on hold already :)


message 4: by Andreas (new)

Andreas | 106 comments I've read Golem and the Jinni in 2013 and fell in love with it - my review. Just don't expect much action. It is more for people loving The Night Circus, or Little, Big.


message 5: by Sam (new)

Sam (aramsamsam) | 354 comments I'll join you for Golem and Jinni. My library owns a copy that is never checked out by anyone, so it seems. I should be able to get it :)

message 7: by Chase (new)

Chase Parnell Got copy from library too...read first 20 pages. Masterful. I envy the Golem.

Looks like I will have to join in with these another time, unless the Kindle versions go on sale!

Shawnie | 1739 comments Did you try your library, Rinn? I was able to get both at my local library, thank goodness.

I can't use the library here without paying a 30 euro joining fee, and as I'm probably going back to the UK in 2 months it's kind of pointless :(


message 11: by Gareth (new)

Gareth Townsend Waterstones had Vicious on special offer Buy one get one half price. So that is next on my TBR. I should get around to it pretty soon


message 12: by Cristal (new)

Cristal Punnett Started reading The Golem and the Djinniand enjoying so far.

Jennifer | 22 comments There's a pretty long hold list for Vicious at the library so I'm crossing my fingers I get it in time... picking up The Golem and the Djinni tomorrow though!

I finished Vicious today, now to move onto Golem. :)


message 16: by Meera (new)

Meera | 58 comments I started Vicious yesterday and I found it hard to put down. I can't wait to see what others think. I own The Golem and the Jinni and I might pick that up later in the month.


message 17: by Chase (new)

Chase Parnell Really enjoying The Golem...so, thanks D&J for the recommendation...nice to read a book that I maybe otherwise would not have selected.

Good to hear! If you want to discuss it in detail, feel free to make a discussion thread in the BotM Science Fiction folder! :) At least I don't think there's one already...


message 22: by Sam (new)

Sam (aramsamsam) | 354 comments Golem and Jinni is still in my reading queue. It's on the top of my TBR, looking gorgeous, whispering "Read me. Now. You know you want to". Sigh.

Rinn (rinnsohma) | 3456 comments Mod
