We've always wanted to start a book club—and we did, for a brief time (and even discovered the author is a cupcakes and cashmere reader!)—but we always felt like it was missing something. A traditional book club didn't capture all of our interests, which include not only books, but podcasts 👏 television shows👏 movies 👏 and all the things we cover in our end-of-month roundups and Leslie's weekly Lists. So we made one!
We're so excited to announce our inaugural Of The Month Club, which highlights the recently released entertainment we're most excited about. Whether it's a just-released book or cookbook, new podcast, or even workout class, our team is going to try out something new every single month, and we hope you join us!
For our first month, we're starting with a book we've been excited to read for months: Margaret Atwood's sequel to The Handmaid's Tale, The Testaments, which released today! Our entire team has either read the first novel or watched The Handmaid's Tale religiously (or both!), so it's safe to say we're pretty excited to see how the next chapter turns out.
As the month goes on, be sure to check out @shopcupcakesandcashmere for a giveaway today(!), updates on our progress, insights into the novel, and a final "book club" Instagram Live on October 14 from Emily's living room (with wine!). Mark your calendars! You can purchase the book here, or tag a friend on Instagram for a chance to win two copies of Margaret Atwood's The Testaments. Happy reading!
P.S., We're already looking for next month's Of The Month Club pick, but we'd love your take! Are there any movies you're dying to see? Cookbooks?? We're looking to review everything! Let us know what you think in the comments below! x
