Everything arrived in a timely manner and in good condition. Only complaint I have is some books are not something I would read. Maybe more geared paranormal romance for young adults would work better for me?.

Didn’t like any of the choices
Norah, thank you for your feedback! I'm sorry that you were not satisfied with your box. Could you give some specifics so we can continue to improve for all of our customers?
I got my first box super fast which was awesome. I was excited to see the books I got. They were in great condition for them to be used. But upon unboxing, I really am only excited to read 2/5 books I received. The title I'm reviewing being one of the two. I would like to see less historical in the future and more fiction, fantasy, and thriller. Authors like Neil Gaiman, V.E. Schwab, Stephen King, etc.
Hello Kayla and thank you for your feedback! I'm so glad that the subscription is going well for you. It even sounds like you got a bonus book!! Due to the randomness in the selection of books we receive, our curator's choices are also random, but it sounds like we're getting very close to hitting the nail on the head as far as finding books that you are excited about. I would, recommend going on our website and signing into your account and adding notes to the section where it asks for more information about your reading preferences so that we can get even closer next time. The notes you add will be printed out on the packing slip that our curators see as they...
I was happy with the condition of the books, they all were used very lightly. I did unfortunately receive a book I already had and it also came with the second book in the series. I need the second book, so that was good, but I wished I received books I hadn’t already read.
Hi Faith! Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry that you received a book that you have already enjoyed. For serious book readers, it may be helpful to go to our website and refine your preferences by listing titles wanted/not wanted, authors wanted/not wanted, a book in a series you would like to read other than the first, etc. Please let us know if we can help in any way so our curators may get closer to the "bullseye" each month.
quick shipment. books okay but did not keep me riveted.
Thank you Suzann! We are "book people" and work very hard to meet our customer's reading preferences. Feel free to go into our website and refine your preferences to include book titles or authors in addition to the genres if you think that might help us hit the bullseye next time. Keep reading!
My current box didn't have too many things in it I found interesting. It was, like two books that were basically the same, army/airforce books which i didn't even bother to read the back of, one that I had never heard of and the back only had reviews, which is annoying, but I'll have to look into. But the book of short horror stories looks really good. It's kind of a shame cause I've had past boxes with really good things in them.
Love the stickers but not very sticky. Definitely would not stick to water bottle which is what I bought it for
So so. I have an aversion to too old paperbacks and to books marked up by previous owner. I will not be renewing.
I am not overly pleased with choice of books. Would like more on psychological thrillers.
This review is going to be of mixed results... For one thing, the price really is so affordable that I feel like I have no right to complain. The books do seem like they're worth it too. So why three stars? Well, they really aren't good at giving you the genres of your choosing. My first box was cooking and fantasy. YES to fantasy, but a very very hard no to cooking. I despise cooking books. I contacted them as soon as I could to fix this. Now, I gave them the benefit of the doubt. It's possible that something fudged up on my end or the computer's end when we got this subscription box rolling. Except...Box 2 was charged before I even received Box 1. That's always a red flag. STILL, I thought "This is really cheap, I'll just let it go." So here I am with Box 2. Fantasy- yay! And... COOKING. I got cooking AGAIN. I'm beyond on the fringe with them as the fantasy books seem worthwhile. But cooking? AGAIN? I don't know how to get through to these people that there is obviously some sort of issue that they are clearly not addressing. Honestly, I'd rather pay more for these individual fantasy books than receive a book genre that I despise. It's an immediate turn off.
Mindy, Despite our best efforts, sometimes things can go wrong. We’re sorry. I’ve reached out to you via e-mail with a solution to the issue that will make you smile. Thank you for subscribing with us and for the feedback. Here’s to better boxes moving forward. -Joe
This is my first box. I was expecting at least one horror since that a genre I picked but hopefully next month I get some. Overall Satisfied.
If you are expecting different ethnicities of authors don’t go for this one, the price is amazing but the genres are very generic.
Over all it’s usually pretty good. However, I updated my address almost 4 months ago and they keep sending it to the wrong city. The last 3 shipments I had to pay a $7 delivery fee on my boxes and the last one went to the wrong address so I can’t even get it.
