The Book Drop YA Subscription Box Review – July 2015 My Last Kiss

My Last Kiss by Bethany Neal – Retail Value $9.99 (On Amazon for $7.96)

Book Summary from Amazon:

What if your last kiss was with the wrong boy?In Bethany Neal’s My Last Kiss, Cassidy Haines remembers her first kiss vividly. It was on the old covered bridge the summer before her freshman year with her boyfriend of three years, Ethan Keys. But her last kiss–the one she shared with someone at her seventeenth birthday party the night she died–is a blur. Now, Cassidy is trapped in the living world, not only mourning the loss of her human body, but left with the grim suspicion that her untimely death wasn’t a suicide as everyone assumes. She can’t remember anything from the weeks leading up to her birthday and she’s worried that she may have betrayed her boyfriend. If Cassidy is to uncover the truth about that fateful night and make amends with the only boy she’ll ever love, she must face her past and all the decisions she made–good and bad–that led to her last kiss.

The Book Drop YA Subscription Box Review – July 2015 Signed

This box came with a signed bookplate sticker (love this), and a black balloon. (I’m guessing I’ll understand the balloon addition after I read the book?)

And there is a flyer included each month with other reading suggestions.

Verdict: I like the addition of the signed bookplate sticker this month! I think that will add to the value for some subscribers, and I hope they continue to add little bonuses like this in the future.

What do you think of the YA Book Drop Box for July?

  1. I was stoked about the idea of this box at first, but the price is just too much. I could go to a book store or Amazon and buy two or three books for the same price, and it isn’t like there aren’t enough books to choose from! For that price I’d hope for more goodies, and not just a deflated balloon.

  2. I think this book sounds great, but I’m not sure I would want to pay double for it just to get a signed book plate and a deflated balloon. Even if it is in reference to the story to help make the book come alive! I love that many book boxes are now including these, but they also usually have a few additional goodies (bookmarks, pens, etc.) With that being said, I have read 2 of the 4 books pictured on the recommended list and have enjoyed them both. A third is on my TBR list as soon as it’s released! At the top of their website, it says “All boxes as of August 2015 will feature a signed book, a signed book plate and/or a goodie!” This is a subscription I will be watching… Thanks for the review!
