Winds of Marque, A Breath After Drowning

Used Books Monthly on Jun 2022

I have received 3 shipments, 6 books in total. Of those six, only one has fit either of the two categories I selected—Sara Douglass The Devil’s Diadem. This book, by a renowned fantasy author, fits perfectly into the Fantasy category. The latest book sent for the fantasy category is sci-fi, but not fantasy.
None of the books sent to me would ever be found on the mystery shelves of a library; they are mainstream fiction, perhaps suspense or thriller, but not mystery novels.
Having spent many hours in libraries over the last several decades, I expected the curation of books in the categories offered to match the standard understood definitions of book genres. This has not been the case and I am paying for and receiving books that clearly do not fit the genres requested. Unless this changes I will definitely be cancelling the subscription and recommending that the service be avoided by any one who asks for my feedback.
