A darkly humorous, surprisingly poignant, and utterly gripping debut novel about a guy who works in Hell (literally) and is on the cusp of a big promotion if only he can get one more member of the wealthy Harrison family to sell their soul Peyote Trip has a pretty good gig in the deals department on the fifth floor of Hell. Sure, none of the pens work, the coffee machine has been out of order for a century, and the only drink on offer is Jgermeister, but Pey has a plan--and all he needs is one last member of the Harrison family to sell their soul. When the Harrisons retreat to the family lake house for the summer, with their daughter Mickey's precocious new friend, Ruth, in tow, the opportunity Pey has waited a millennium for might finally be in his grasp. And with the help of his charismatic coworker Calamity, he sets a plan in motion. But things aren't always as they seem, on Earth or in Hell. And as old secrets and new dangers scrape away at the Harrisons' shiny surface, revealing the darkness beneath, everyone must face the consequences of their choices.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 This book was fantastic. A really unique read that was funny and a little dark but surprisingly touching. Definitely recommend this one, a fun and kind of twisty read. Actually made me stay up and read even when I was exhausted lol This was Claudia Lux first novel and it definitely made me want more from her, can‘t wait to see what she writes in the future

StaceyKondla I need to get this book! 🖤 3d

This was not only funny but surprisingly touching. I don‘t think I‘ve ever read a story quite like this! With two loosely connected storylines, both of which are equally entertaining, we get to see these complicated and somewhat broken characters navigate worlds falling apart. They are all flawed but realistic and I love it. Definitely unique! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

4¾⭐
I kind of loved this but not everybody will connect with this story. Because, yeah, there are elements that one could pick apart. It was a little slow in the middle and a touch confusing at times…but, I‘m not really complaining. I thought it was not only fun but uniquely told. I loved how the two separate stories were connected. Plus it has an ending that I never saw coming…definitely not in that way.

I actually really enjoyed this book. The connection between Peyote and the Harrison‘s was a great twist.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Overall, I really enjoyed this entertaining, creative, vibrant read. The middle felt a little slow - I think the story as a whole could have been tightened up a bit - but the ending was full of suspense as everything came together. The originality makes this distinctive and memorable, and it was just a hell of a lot of fun! 😉😈 #BOTM

This for me was a ⭐️⭐️⭐️ read. While at times it was humorous (dark humor) and I loved the idea storyline wise, there were times where it was just too slow and I had to force myself to keep going.

ShyBookOwl Oh shoot. It's on my TBR but I tend to like fast moving plots 1mo
KristiAhlers @ShyBookOwl me too. I mean I liked the story enough to stick with it but I would‘ve liked the pacing to be a more consistent 1mo

This was almost a pick, but it definitely dragged in the middle for me, which made it only so-so. The world-building was clever and the characters interesting.

I had fun with this month‘s #BOTM pick! Fast-paced with multiple narrators- including Peyote Trip- one of Hell‘s Dealmakers, and the family he watches as he approaches getting a Complete Set- the Harrisons. Their family drama adds to the excitement and plot twists! With humor and originality, this reminded me a little of Glen Duncan‘s I, LUCIFER. I tore through this impressive debut novel and am looking forward to reading Lux‘s next book!

angel1 @KathyWheeler yeah I think release date is the 25th but I would definitely recommend...it was a fun, spooky read...I loved the TV series Lucifer on Netflix and when I read the description, it kinda made me think of that show so I had to get it!🎃 1mo

I thought this book was just okay. It definitely could have been cut down a lot. There was a lot of filler and unnecessary information in the middle. There was some humor, but I felt like a lot fell flat. And I never really got invested in the characters at all. I think the interesting aspect of hell is what saved this from being a 1 star.

Hands down, my favorite book I‘ve read this year. Lux‘s description of Hell made me think of Master and Margarita but with some delicious twists and turns. 4.9⭐️ #botm

#AllHallowsReadSwap #BookOfTheMonth
I had an exhausting trip out of town but came home to #BookMail! I got my #AHRS swap box, the books for the swap box I‘m sending, & the other was my #BoTM! I picked Sign Here because it was rec‘d on my fave horror book podcast, Books in the Freezer. As for the rest - I‘ll be shipping off my swap box tomorrow! I can‘t wait to open my box! Thanks @Avanders 😆 you‘re very on the ball! Now to wait in suspense! 🎃

Avanders Yay!! 👏🏽👏🏽🎃🖤 2mo

So it should have bailed since I don‘t like horror generally. But I don‘t like bailing on and ARC. So: the book is well written and the concept of Hell is fascinating but the characters and humor fell very flat to me.
The biggest problem is the characters name is Peyote Trip. Using a religious plant as a punchline to a (bad) joke isn‘t funny and by a white author give me ick.

Megabooks Glad I passed on this at BOTM. The first section didn‘t hit me as very funny and I didn‘t like the Peyote Trip name either. 2mo
DogEaredBooks @Megabooks yeah you didn‘t miss out. And the author‘s sense of humor wasn‘t funny to me at all 2mo

Woohoo! My BOTM box finally made it to North Las Vegas, which is the final stop before my Los Angeles location. With any luck I should be getting my box no later than this Saturday. “Sign Here” is the first book I will be reading during this spooky season. 😃

My #botm box came in 🤗!! Now let‘s see if I can read them both this month 🤣.

mom_of_4 I so want to do this when i have the money. 2mo
candc320 @mom_of_4 my parents gift it to me every Christmas, without that I probably wouldn‘t pay for it. It is so much fun to wait and pick from the options but isn‘t that much cheaper than just buying the books you want throughout the year. 2mo

#botm was kind enough to add my birthday credit to October's picks after I forgot to use it in September. Sign Here is so popular that my box won't ship for a few more days.

What the hell (pun intended), at first I wasn't stoked by the #BOTM choices, but I ended up deciding to snag this one. At least it gives a more Autumn/October creepy vibe 😈

I chose Sign Here as my #botm and I‘m very curious what it‘ll be like!

It is on my #bookspinbingo #bookspin list for October. I feel like I want to read allllll the books lately but I know my busy season at work is approaching, so if I don‘t have a big reading month I‘ll try to be patient.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 2mo
