I've recently subscribed to Bookabuy which is a monthly subscription website for books. You first select your preferred genre of books, whether that be modern fiction, historical fiction, science fiction, young adult or many other options. After that you fill in a little questionnaire where you give a bit of information about yourself so that the Bookabuy team can carefully select a book for you, tailored to your tastes. 
In my first order, I received 'The Safest Place in London' by Maggie Joel. It is a historical fiction novel set during the second world war. This blurb is from GoodReads: 

"On a frozen January evening in 1944, Nancy Levin, and her three-year-old daughter, Emily, flee their impoverished East London home as an air raid siren sounds. Not far away, 39- year-old Diana Meadows and her own child, three-year-old Abigail, are lost in the black-out as the air raid begins. Finding their way in the jostling crowd to the mouth of the shelter they hurry to the safety of the underground tube station. Mrs Meadows, who has so far sat out the war in the safety of London's outer suburbs, is terrified - as much by the prospect of sheltering in an Eastend tube station as of experiencing a bombing raid first hand.

Far away Diana's husband, Gerald Meadows finds himself in a tank regiment in North Africa while Nancy's husband, Joe Levin has narrowly survived a torpedo in the Atlantic and is about to re-join his ship. Both men have their own wars to fight but take comfort in the knowledge that their wives and children, at least, remain safe.

But in wartime, ordinary people can find themselves taking extreme action - risking everything to secure their own and their family's survival, even at the expense of others."

I love how the book comes wrapped up in brown paper and string I just think that it is adorable. The team is super friendly and was so quick to help me when I had questions. I love how personal Bookabuy makes the whole experience and I can't wait for my next book.
