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
I really love this box because of the books they choose. You never know what exactly you are going to get but always something good and often something you might not have thought to buy for yourself. I love the romance and historical fiction choices the best. Some of the books they have sent have turned out to be my favorite of the year. Even the Harlequin's are enjoyable to get now and then. I took off one star for shipping only because some months no box arrived and we didn't receive any communication. I think it is Covid related but Cratejoy will help if you ever run into problems.
I am in the process of filing a complaint about Fresh Fiction with my credit card. I have had no luck at contacting customer service. I ordered a 3-month box supply on March 1. I understood the box would be sent out the last week of March. It is not April 7 and no shipping date has been given. I've tried to send countless emails to no avail. I am absolutely disgusted at the customer service.
I got this as a gift, only to be told that the box was delivered to an entirely different state. The customer service has been a nightmare to deal with, and I can only hope the recipient receives the box at some point, although not sure it will even be worth it at that point due to all of the time and effort to communicate through this service.
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 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 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!
This is a great box if you read across the romance genre spectrum.
I was initially going to cancel my subscription but I was SO HAPPY with my first box that I decided to keep it!!
I get several and this one is a favorite
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!
I just received my box of books. I am so excited to start them!
I think this is a great subscription if you are just interested in books. I love romance and I love the amount of romance novels you get for the price. Also I love the fact that they do offer ebooks as well in here, and I love the advanced reader copy I got. I get to read a book before it's even published. I think that's awesome
I love this box! Great way to find new authors!
I really enjoyed this book box but sadly they no longer send to the UK so I'm unable to resubscribe 😞
Let be the many choiced
I've gotten used to this box. Of the book books they send, half of them are ones I like and will read and the other half are billionaire alpha businessmen or rock stars or sheikhs. Hate those books. I'd rather read about some shifter or vampire than a billionaire, and I don't really care for the paranormal that much. I wish there was some way to encourage the selection of what I like.
If you're looking for a good quality box that's not expensive, this is the one. They usually include 3 books and at least 3 digital copies, plus lots of goodies. This box was my first ever book subscription box I've tried. Great for the price and lovely to unwind
