First of all, we loved the subscription! I ordered a three month subscription for my daughter for her birthday but it wouldn’t cancel after MULTIPLE times of me checking and verifying a cancellation. It kept reverting back for some reason. I don’t know if this is a Cratejoy issue or Once upon a Book Clubs. What I do know is I now have a total of $86.98 of unauthorized charges. I was planning to do another three month subscription for her for Christmas but I’m SO upset over this.
I tried another book club prior to this, yes it was less expensive, but this is so worth it. It took my sister convincing me to do something nice for myself for once, five months ago, and I haven't looked back. I have enjoyed every book I have received. It really forces me to get out of my comfort zone. I tend to stick to young adult, but decided to go in 100% and get the adult box. Although this month I will likely spring for both boxes. They both sound amazing. All the gifts really bring the books to life. The ladies running things do such an amazing job selecting the custom gifts and know exactly what page a gift is needed. They host a Facebook group with such an amazing group of people, as well. I highly recommend Once Upon a Book Club. It gives me something to look forward to every month.
I started this subscription two years ago to help get myself out of a book slump. I've continued to subscribe because this box really is one of the best experiences I've had. I look forward to my boxes each month (I get both the YA and adult boxes because I have no self control lol).The gifts fit well with the story and are often useful after the book is done. I will continue to get this as long as I can!
