Book Riot Quarterly Subscription Box Review #BKR03

FYI if you are interested in this specific box it is on sale for $35!
Each Quarterly Box comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items included and why each was selected. This month the theme is centered around book genres Riot Readers are most hesitant to try: Romance, Sci-Fi/Fantasy and Young Adult. Book Riot selected one of their favorite books in each genre to “help you shuffle your reading deck.”
I’m never hesitant about reading YA, but the rest applies to me, so I like this theme a lot!
Please Ignore Vera Dietz – Retail Value $10
This YA novel is new to me, and it gets amazing reviews on Amazon, so I can’t wait to read it. And as added bonus for Book Riot subscribers, it also comes with an original “Write the damn book” flow chart from the author!
This book is their recommendation for Sci-Fi/Fantasy, and it comes with a hand written letter from the author!
A Rogue by Any Other Name – Retail Value $8
This book also came with a poster that gives 10 reasons to read Romance. I’m willing to give this Book Riot approved one a try!
Oyster 2 Month Membership -Value $20 (requires credit card)
Literary Aces Playing Cards – Value $10
I just downloaded the Oyster app on my iPad and I’m already obsessed. I’ve been trying out Kindle Unlimited too, but since Oyster has different publishers it’s a great way to get lots of boxes at a fixed monthly cost. And there are lots of cookbooks on Oyster too! (If you want to try out Oyster this link will get you $15 credit).
Out of Print Library Card Pouch – Value $12
I read YA Button – Value $.50?
This pouch is adorable – it’s one of my favorite book related items from Book Riot yet!
Verdict: I paid $50 for this box and received about $75 retail value worth of items. (Less if you don’t count the Oyster membership, and just the sale price of books). I think this is a great subscription for an avid book lover, or someone like myself who is getting more and more into books with each box. I love the subscriber exclusive content they include too. My only issue with this subscription is that for the past two boxes now they have given bonus material to random subscribers and I have yet to win this lottery. (With this box about 25% of subscribers got a bonus item).
What did you think of the third Book Riot subscription box? Did you like the books? (Did you get a bonus item?!)
