I am very happy with the book titles unfortunately my books was delivered damaged I contacted the seller they took great care of me and they felt really bad about me receiving the books damaged ... I am excited to get next month's box ... I am renewing my subscription I don't blame them at all for the damaged books.. I am very honest in my reviews... The books are still very much readable... I let them air dry and sun dry for a couple of days as well as used a hair dryer... Thank you for my amazing books I already finished reading one book..

It came quickly after the initial “it shipped” email. The packaging was nice and neat. The book wrapping was really cute, too! I really enjoyed this!

I'm so disappointed. Initially I was so excited when I ordered a box. I actually ordered 2. They came and it was so fun unwrapping the books. I recieved some great books. HOWEVER, one of the books came damaged. The pages were water damaged and the glue came undone from the pages holding them to the spine. I contacted them to find a relove. They first emailed me and seemed as though they wanted to help but after I replied stating the issue they never responded. Even after a second attempt to contact them, they still did not respond. Terrible service from what seemed like a great box.

I've read three books so far and I enjoyed only one. I also wanted to change my subscription to YA every month but it was only changed for last month for some reason. Don't want to keep receiving books I'm not interested in.

I was very excited for this box since the reviews were pretty good. I recieved my box and both of the book are rated under 3.5 stars on goodreads. Only one of them sounds interesting, plus they were purchased from an overstock company. Over all I wouldn’t recommend this subscription. I won’t be keeping it.

I have not received my crate , and I’ve made 2 payments. In my opinion I can’t not rate the crate , if there was the option to give it zero stars I would.

April, we are sorry to hear you are not completely satisfied with our Book Box. However, it shows that your Book Box was delivered to your PO Box last week. Have you had a chance to check with your local post office? To make things right, we will issue you a full refund for the 2nd payment.

Happy reading!

Love it!

Received 3 deliveries so far and the 3 books I have read were hits. Definitely exposes you to stories in my genre mystery/thriller that I may never have tried and bought. Good value and delivers as promised.
