The Book of the Month February 2024 selections are here! Decide which of these books you want to add to your subscription box.
Book of the Month is my favorite subscription box. Every month, I choose between their curated book selections, and voila! A blue box arrives at my door carrying one (or two or three) new books for me to read.
Each month, Book of the Month chooses between five and seven hardcover books you can choose from. Rather listen to an audiobook? Book of the Month has those, too! Now you can opt for audiobooks as your monthly pick or add them on at any time during the month.
Every month, I will highlight the books I’ve chosen and let you know my thoughts on the available titles.
Even if you don’t have a Book of the Month subscription (yet), I think you’ll find value in looking at a curated list of new releases.
Keep scrolling to see all the details about the Book of the Month February 2024 selections and to find out which one I’m adding to my subscription box.
What is Book of the Month?
Book of the Month is a monthly subscription book service highly popular among the book community. Trust me, once you try it, you’ll be hooked.
How it Works
Each month, a panel of judges chooses at least five books for you to choose from. The Book of the Month selections cover different genres and are always special edition hardcovers. Often, the chosen books haven’t been published yet, so you get to be one of the first people to read them.
At the beginning of the month, you choose one book to add to your box and shortly thereafter the little blue box arrives at your door. If you aren’t loving any of the selected books, you just skip that month and your credits will just roll over to the next month. Or, after your third box, you can choose from five member favorite books for your month’s selection instead.
On the other hand, if you want more than one book, once you’ve chosen your initial book, you can add-on up to four additional books at a discounted rate. These add-ons can be from the current month’s selection, be favorites from previous months, or be new releases specially included in the add-on catalog.
Book of the Month runs two different pricing plans. On the monthly plan, you get one credit a month for $17. If you are willing to pay upfront, the yearly plan gives you 12 credits for $168, which averages out to $14 a book. For a hardcover new release, both prices are a steal.
Even better, when you include additional books into your box, they are only $10 each!
Book of the Month also offers 3, 6, and 9-month gift cards if you are considering purchasing it as a gift.
For new subscribers, Book of the Month’s homepage almost always has a special offer to get your first book for $10. But I can do you one better: if you are interested in joining, you can use this Book of the Month Club referral link to get your first book for $5 right now!
But wait, there’s more! Once you’ve chosen your 12th book from Book of the Month, you join the BFF club and get a special Book of the Month tote.
After that, you’ll get a free add-on every year for your birthday month. Plus, when the end of the year rolls around, you get one of the top 5 Book of the Month selections from the year for free. (Note: They didn’t do the Book of the Year in 2023 so I’m not sure if they are still doing this bonus, though it is listed as a benefit on the website.) That’s an additional two books each year for no additional cost.

February 2024 Book of the Month Selections
Though her love life isn’t great and her job isn’t quite what she dreamed, Eve Hatch is content with her life in Brooklyn. Until she finds herself pregnant after an uncharacteristic one-night stand and everything changes. Her best friend Willa suddenly seems more distant but her older brother Shep becomes extremely supportive. Over the next nine months, Eve rethinks everything she thought she knew in this slow-burn friends-to-lovers romance.
In 1921, Nelly Sawyer is the daughter of the “wealthiest Negro in America.” Not content with life as a debutante, Nelly has secretly been working as an investigative journalist, reporting on the shadow of Jim Crow on the everyday lives of Black people. Wanting to expose the city’s top vice lord, Nelly teams up with the manager of a speakeasy and discovers a whole new side of Prohibition-era Chicago.
Looking to escape her past, Cass moves to Thailand’s famous party island hoping to start over at the Koh Sang Resort. Now a diving instructor, Cass lives alongside a group of expats who never talk about who they were before. When a dive student dies, Cass realizes someone knows her real identity and will stop at nothing to get justice.
After a violent revolution, witches have been overthrown as rulers to become ruthlessly hunted outcasts. By day, Rune pretends to be a vapid socialite but by night she acts as The Crimson Moth, a vigilante saving other witches from the purge. When a rescue goes wrong, Rune decides to court the handsome witch hunter Gideon Sharpe. While each is using the other to gain information, Rune and Gideon never expected they would fall in love in this enemies-to-lovers fantasy series.
When her brother ships off to Vietnam, nursing student Frankie McGrath impulsively decides to leave her sheltered life on Coronado Island and join the Army Nurse Corps. In Vietnam, Frankie is overwhelmed by the chaos of war. Yet, even more unsettling is the shock of coming home to a country that has been divided by war and disillusioned by politics. With a similar feel to The Four Winds, The Women is immersive thought-provoking historical fiction book with a more serious tone.
Fox spirits are known to to be cunning and clever creatures who lure people by transforming themselves into beautiful humans. In 1908, Snow leaves her den in the grasslands to seeking vengeance for her lost child, following a trail that will lead her from China to Japan. Meanwhile Bao, a detective, investigates the death of an unknown courtesan found frozen in the snow. As Bao follows Snow’s trail, they both meet friends and foes and navigate the truths and myths about fox spirits. With gorgeous magical realism, The Fox Wife presents an enchanting premise but a slow-to-develop story.
Want an Audiobook Instead?
Recently, Book of the Month has started including audiobooks as another option for your monthly picks. Instead of choosing a hardcover copy, you can choose one of these audiobooks as your main selection this month.
Not Feeling the February Books?
Sometimes, it happens: if none of the February 2024 Book of the Month selections are calling your name, don’t despair. After your third box, you now have another option!
Previously, if you didn’t love the five choices, you would have to skip the whole month. Now if you have BFF status, you can choose a member fave hardcover for your monthly box and then add-on up to four more books if you choose.
February’s New Add-Ons
Book of the Month also includes a few extra releases on top of their monthly selections. Once you have picked your main selection, you can choose to add-on these new books (or any past release) to your box.
February’s New Books:
My February 2024 Picks
Yes, The Women is my top choice this month even though I’ve already read it thanks to a gifted copy from the publisher. If you enjoyed The Four Winds, you’ll want to pick up her newest book. It’s a thought-provoking serious story about a nurse suffering from PTSD after serving in Vietnam. I loved it so much I’m using my February pick to get a second copy to gift to my sister.
I was really tempted to add a few more of the February selections to my box. I’ve already read The Fox Wife (gorgeous but slow); however, Heartless Hunter and The Mayor of Maxwell Street both sound fascinating though long. Maybe next month. If you read them, be sure to let me know if they are good.
Instead, I decided to add-on two January celebrity book club picks that I skipped earlier. I haven’t read any thrillers yet this year, and I was hearing good buzz about First Lie Wins, Reese’s book club pick last month.
To round out my box, I choose The Storm We Made, GMA’s January book club pick about a spy and a love affair in Malaysia during World War II. I’ve been hearing great things about it, so hopefully it lives up to the hype.
