Riot Read Monthly Book Club Subscription Review #RRD01
I’ve had quite a few requests for which Quarterly boxes to sign up for next, and Riot Read was one of the most requested. Plus I love the idea of getting a great new book to read each month – for the longest time I was only reading the occasional non-fiction book, and only last year did I get into the amazing world of fiction. (To give you an idea of how behind I am, I finished the Harry Potter books last year, and I’m currently reading the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series!)
The Subscription Box: Riot Read – Book Riot’s Monthly Book Club
The Cost: $30 a month
The Products: 1 new book (released within the past few weeks) selected by Book Riot.
Ships to: US (free shipping), Canada ($10 shipping), Worldwide ($15 shipping)
Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing their selections. The Riot Read team discussed why they picked Landline as their first selection, gave a brief synopsis of the book, and also reminded readers that on August 5th there will be a live chat with author Rainbow Rowell on the Book Riot site.
This book was on my Amazon reading wish list, so I was very happy to see it as the monthly pick!
Verdict: I’m pretty torn about this subscription. On one hand, I love the idea of getting a new curated book selection each month – who knows how long this book would have been on my wish list otherwise. And it’s nice when I’m having some choice paralysis of what to read next to just have a great book put in my hands. But considering I could have bought this book for $14.99 on Amazon, I don’t love the fact that I basically paid double for it.
What do you think of Riot Read?
