Yes you can! When you go under your subscriptions on cratejoy, it will let you change the genre there :) If that doesn’t end up working out for you, just send us an email and we can do it for you on our end!

Very nicely packaged, it arrived pristine. The book clues were exciting and showed a very good understanding of my reading tastes. In fact, they chose exactly what I would’ve, which I know because I’ve read that book before.
I’m giving five stars because the book arrived in great shape, the blind book date description was fun, and they did a good job picking something I would enjoy reading.

I just received my first book and was more than happy with everything. The shipping bag thingie was even light pink with cacti on it, 2 things I love. I've only started reading the book, but so far it's really good! I'll definitely be keeping this subscription. Thank you to Auggie's!

I really enjoyed getting a surprise book in the genre I like. Everything was well packaged and adorably labeled with the hints on the front of the covered book. The book was right up my alley and it was a good way to introduce myself to an author I might not have picked up before. The customer service is also excellent I had emailed with a question and I was responded to promptly.

I subscribed for a 3 month term and cratejoy goofed up and didn’t display shipping on the invoice. It showed dashes so my total showed up as $30. I was startled by the high charge on my card and quickly emailed the box owner. I received a fast and detailed response with a screenshot that includes the shipping price on cratejoy. The charge was reversed before I could respond.

Excellent customer service! Making me wish I didn’t knee-jerk like that. I’ll keep an eye on the page and hope they offer horror as a genre.

I'd asked for Nonfiction, and the book was a novel. However, as the hints indicated, it was an historical novel and contained a lot of information about the subject that I hadn't known before. It was a great pick for someone like me. I'm looking forward to the next blind date.
