If you’ve been reading my blog the last few months, you know that I’ve been enjoying the book box by Fresh Fiction Box Not to Miss. They were gracious enough to send me several months’ worth of packages for free in exchange for honest reviews. This month is my final month with them, but it was a good one. #FFB mails out popular genre books like romances and mysteries in both print and e-book formats along with a monthly (usually food-based) sample. Have a look at this month’s box, then check out my giveaway for free books below!
This Fresh Fiction package included 8 books in total. There were 5 print copies and 3 e-books. I was especially excited about the print ones this time. I received The Simplicity of Cider by Amy E. Reichert, Freedom’s Price by Christine Johnson, Buns by Alice Clayton, Run to Ground by Katie Ruggle and One Week to the Wedding by Olivia Miles. I’ve heard a lot about Reichert’s novel which is a contemporary romance set around a struggling apple orchard. It looks excellent. I’m also excited about Run to Ground because it has a recommendation on the front from Charlaine Harris, one of my all-time favorite authors. The story description for Clayton’s book attracts me, even as the title pushes me away a little bit, so I’ll be trying it, and One Week to the Wedding looks like a contemporary romance with family elements which I usually enjoy. The only one I’ll pass along is Freedom’s Price as it looks like it has religious overtones, which I normally don’t like.
The e-books this month were The McKinnon Legends: The Beginning Book One: Parts 1 & 2 by Ranay James, Heart Breaker by Stacey Kennedy and Where the Pieces Fall by Blue Sapphire. The last two look like straight up erotic romances which aren’t really my thing, but the book by James is a historical fantasy which is a genre I lean towards. I’ll be reading that one and passing the other two along to someone else. See details below.
Last in the box was a bag of Acai Berry tea by Stash Teas, included because the red color made them think of the red landscape in one of this month’s novels. It had a hibiscus base which I’m rarely a fan of. I tried it, but it was too bitter for me. Other months have included caffeinated breath mints or other tea flavors which I liked better.
Again, you can’t beat Fresh Fiction Box Not to Miss on the quantity of reading material, or the quality reads. While you don’t have a choice of which novels you receive or a theme to go on, you’re sure to find something to read based on pure volume. They mainly cater to the contemporary romance crowd, so if this is you, you need this box.
They only charge $25.95 per month with free shipping to the USA with 5-8 novels in each package, which is amazing compared to other reading boxes out there. Looking to go a little cheaper yet? You can sign up for a 3-month plan or use coupon code BOOKLOVE for $3 off your first subscription box.
