I subscribed for 6 months. Out of the 6 months, I only liked 2 of the books. Some of the others were okay. My main complaints were that they are supposed to be sending new releases. One of the books I got was 2 years old and it was new to paperback only. I read a lot and it's misleading to advertise new releases if you're including older titles. My next issue was with shipping. I received a damaged book. I emailed customer service and they completely ignored my email. Basically, the surprise experience isn't for everyone. If you read a lot, chances are, you might have already read their selection. And their customer service isn't anything to write home about. I would rather follow their page on Instagram and if their book selections interest me, I'll order from Amazon. They don't add anything to the experience of book buying.
