I have had a mantra lately. What is said mantra, you ask? I shall not buy new books today. Obviously, as you may have noticed by the title of this review, that isn't going so well. I have no more room for books, but I still buy them. I have no self control with literature and subscriptions like Bookcase.Club make me happy (even if I have no more shelf space to put them on).
If you aren't familiar, Bookcase.Club is a monthly subscription box for lovers of literature. The cost is astoundingly affordable at $9.99 per month (plus $5 s+h) and includes two full length novels in the category of your choice: Teenage Dream (YA novels), Blind Date (Paranormal romance), Strange Worlds (sci-fi/fantasy), Thrill Seeker (suspense/thriller), Booking For Love (romance), & the Read To Me case (children's). Need extra incentive to try them out? Use coupon code Cratejoy at checkout for 10% off your first box!
Oh! I'm loving the book covers!
The theme for this month's YA box is Trapped. Both books focus on teens trying to survive in a dystopian world.
The Walled City by Ryan Graudin --- I'm sensing a Maze Runner kind of vibe with this one. Here's the summary from Amazon:
"Mei Yee, and Dai all live in the Walled City, a lawless labyrinth run by crime lords and overrun by street gangs. Teens there traffic drugs or work in brothels--or, like Jin, hide under the radar. But when Dai offers Jin a chance to find her lost sister, Mei Yee, she begins a breathtaking race against the clock to escape the Walled City itself."
The Young World by Chris Weitz --- The one sounds really interesting! Here's the summary from Amazon:
"After a mysterious Sickness wipes out the rest of the population, the young survivors assemble into tightly run tribes. Jefferson, the reluctant leader of the Washington Square tribe, and Donna, the girl he's secretly in love with, have carved out a precarious existence among the chaos.
This first novel from acclaimed film writer/director Chris Weitz is the heart-stopping debut of an action-packed trilogy."
I freaking love this subscription. I mean, I'm getting 2 hardcover books for $15 and I'm always really pleased with the diversity of the books they choose. I've found some amazing stories through Bookcase.Club and I am always anxious to see which books they will send next!
