Q: Are these primarily new authorsAsked by Trish H., December 2019
I liked this box. I wasn’t sure what to expect and I think that set the bar pretty low, but I was pleasantly surprised. Reading these books will give me a better idea of whether it was worth it, but my first impression of them is promising. The extra treats in this particular box were no big deal to me since I only subscribed to this service for the books.
I got a discount on my first box. The cost of this service is normally $25.95/month so with the four books I received, that averaged out to $6.49 per book which is good price.
I will continue the subscription for now. Full review is at my website: lorainenunley(dot)com
Received 5 books (1 hardcover) and 1 ebook. Love the selections; they were all new to me and sound really interesting! Can't wait to curl up and read them!
This was my first box, so my lackluster first box May be a one off. This delivery was nothing like the ones I had looked at from other’s posted reviews. There was not a single book or author I’ve seen before, and to be honest none I would have picked when browsing at a store. Of the 5 paperbacks I received (no ebooks) two were heavily religion based, one being an Amish story, I have no interest in either. Hopefully there will not be religious books in every box, that’s a pretty specific taste for a book box. One book I may give a try (a romance) the other two are some sort of espionage/thriller stories that don’t sound very interesting.
This being said, the shipping was good and all the titles arrived in good shape. I have prepaid three months, so I’ll give two more deliveries a try before deciding on wether or not to cancel. I realize that it’s hard to make everyone happy, so hopefully this delivery was just not in my favor.
I received my first box with 3 books. However the box did not have any ebooks included. Other than that I love it because I love books!
I subscribe to a few different services and as a whole I liked this one. I only kept it for a few months as I kept getting one really Christian book. I know genres are subjective, and honestly the mix of books here is really good. I just couldn’t justify the price with knowing one book in the mix immediately was a genre not for me. For those subgenres that are more polarizing it would be great to be able to opt out of a category or two.
I just received my April box of books and I am SOLD. This book box contained 3 mass market paperbacks (2 romance, 1 cozy mystery), 1 trade paperback (chicklit?), and 1 hardcover (mystery). It also contained 2 ebooks (1 romance and 1 cozy mystery). I am super excited about most of the books. I love romance and cozy mystery books. The ones in my box are all very recent and when I went to Barnes and Noble, I saw the prices and all together, the books are way over the price of the box.
My only reservation about this box is that they I did receive a mystery book (NOT a cozy at all!) which I don't actually read, so I will have to gift it to a friend. Hopefully, in the future, they will send more more romance/cozy type books.
All in all, this box is so much fun. It made my spring break full of great, fun reads. I will be continuing my subscription for a few more months in the hopes that I will keep getting awesome romances.
I love this subscription! The book choices vary from historical and contemporary romance to women's fiction. I like not knowing exactly which genres will be included each month because it gives me a chance to read books I might not have chosen or known about. The additional e-books add to the value of the box, which is generally way above the cost. I would recommend this box to anyone who likes a wider range of genres and appreciates a higher value subscription.
I received my first box a few days ago, and I loved it! I definitely feel like I got some great books (print and digital) for the price I paid. And a lot of the books are new releases, some aren't even out yet. That just makes it more unique. Looking forward to my next box!
I loved it! Great boom choices and i love the little swag you get with it! II'm getting my second box today and I can't wait!
I get several and this one is a favorite
September is here! Time to announce that LABYRINTH by the iconic Catherine Coulter is our featured book. These selections are nothing like the required books we had to read in high school. Here is a sampling of the books we included in this month's shipment.
August is here! Time to announce that THE ORCHID THRONE by Jeffe Kennedy is our featured book. We are so excited to bring our subscribers this book before it's release to the public. Here is a sampling of the books we included in this month's shipment.
