Q: Can I exclude the Romance genre from the Mystery Little Box?Asked by Sanket R., August 2019

JustBooksBox answered...August 2019

Hi Fellow Reader,

Unfortunately, we can't exclude any genres from the Mystery Box. The idea
of the Box is to try different genres, so they are all in there!

Q: I purchased 3 months up front, am I able to change the genre for the next two months? I got the science fiction little box in hopes of dystopian future type books but it wasn’t what I was looking for.Asked by Niki M., September 2020

JustBooksBox answered...September 2020

Hi Niki,

Cratejoy allows you to change genre for each subscription cycle, so you can change for the next 3 month subscription, but not the current one.

That said, you can change genre through JustBooksBox by sending us an email letting us know what you'd like to change to. We can change it on our end--but it won't show up on Cratejoy until your next renewal through them!

Thanks for letting us introduce you to new authors (and genres),
Lane (One of the Friendly Folks at JustBooksBox)

Q: I received a message from you saying my box should've been delivered by now, however it hasn't. I tracked my package and the last update says it was in transit over 10 days ago. Is this normal?Asked by Elsa D., August 2020

JustBooksBox answered...August 2020

Hi Elsa,

It looks like your Box is still in transit. The USPS slowdowns have affected everything, including how long the Box took to get to Canada--and now it seems like Canada Post is experiencing similar delays. You can check on the status of your Box by searching the tracking number included in the shipping email you received when the Box shipped this month. Normally, delivery to Canada takes 10 days, but the last two months have been closer to 4 weeks! We apologize for the inconvenience and hope things speed up soon.

I have not read the books yet, but I think that I will enjoy the selections from this box! They were not books that I would have picked out for myself, and that is exactly what I was looking for as I am needing some variety in my reading. Looking forward to the next box!

I purchased the small mystery box and am very pleased with what I received this month. 1 classic and 1 romantic comedy. I was a little nervous about going the mystery route but since I have other book subscriptions with specific genres chosen, I wanted something to help me venture out of my comfort zone. I’m glad I did! Hopefully the next box is just as good :)

I enjoyed the box. I just wasn’t a fan of most of the books. I would still recommend it if you are not overly picky on your reads...

Disappointed in these particular selections. Good books but not what I expected for my second shipment after my first shipment.

Hi Jastine,

We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the latest selections! One of the risks of a Mystery Box is that you don't know what genre you will get each month. We hope you find a Box that better suits your reading preferences in the future!

Thanks,
The Friendly Folks at JustBooksBox

Two out of the four books I received are something I believe I’d enjoy reading. I think I may need to change my genre but can’t figure out how!

I was VERY disappointed with last month's selection. I joined based on the many reviews, as well as articles written. I felt what I received (both cost and actual book selection) wasn't worth the price. My upcoming selection will decide if I continue with this subscription service. Thank you.

This month I received the same book that I've already received from this box, It Girls. I don't really appreciate getting a duplicate book...

Got the paranormal romance box. Great book choices! only complaint was that it took awhile for it to ship out (some boxes send right away, some send out on specific day--I just happened to subscribe at the wrong time)

Delivered what they promised.

They sent me exactly what I asked for.
I would definitely recommend. I am three chapters into one of the books and I was hooked by the first chapter.
