August 2016 BookCase Club Review & Coupon

       

One of these days, I'm going to have my own personal library. I'm serious, the number of books I own is completely ridiculous and I'm in dire need of some new shelf space. I swear, I have at least 100 books in every room of the house and I add more every month. With so many amazing book subscriptions like Bookcase.Club around, it's not hard to see why I have a reading addiction.



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!


Red is my absolute favorite color so in terms of aesthetics, I find these quite nice!


Every month, the chosen books revolve around a theme of sorts. This month's YA theme is Choices That Define Us. This nice little card gives you a bit of information on the books included in your box.


The Doubt Factory by Paolo Bacigalupi --- I love how dark and foreboding this cover is. Here's the synopsis from Amazon:

"Everything Alix knows about her life is a lie. At least that's what a mysterious young man who's stalking her keeps saying. But then she begins investigating the disturbing claims he makes against her father. Could her dad really be at the helm of a firm that distorts the truth and covers up wrongdoing by hugely profitable corporations that have allowed innocent victims to die? Is it possible that her father is the bad guy, and that the undeniably alluring criminal who calls himself Moses--and his radical band of teen activists--is right? Alix has to make a choice, and time is running out, but can she truly risk everything and blow the whistle on the man who loves her and raised her?"


Dear Killer by Katherine Ewell --- I love this cover. It immediately caught my attention. Here's the book synopsis from Amazon:

"Rule One. Nothing is right, nothing is wrong.

Kit takes her role as London's notorious "Perfect Killer" seriously. The letters and cash that come to her via a secret mailbox are not a game; choosing who to kill is not an impulse decision. Her moral nihilism and thus her murders are a way of life—the only way of life she has ever known.
But when a letter appears in the mailbox that will have the power to topple Kit's convictions as perfectly as she commits her murders, she must make a decision: follow the only rules she has ever known, or challenge Rule One and go from there.
Katherine Ewell's Dear Killer is a sinister psychological thriller that explores the thin line between good and evil, and the messiness of that inevitable moment when life contradicts everything you believe."


I'm quite happy with this month's selections. I love that this box usually gets me to branch out of my typical reading comfort zone, sending books I would never normally gravitate towards. I'm usually very pleasantly surprised and you really can't beat the cost of this box! It's fantastic!
