  1. I can’t decide between Fates and Furies or Gold Fame Citrus…

    • I’m having the same problem. I’m leaning towards Gold Fame Citrus right now but just slightly.

      • I went with Gold Fame Citrus since my library has Fates and Furies. 🙂

  2. Thanks for the reminder, so many good books to choose from this month. Its hard to choose!

  3. I decided on “Smaller and Smaller Circles”. It looks so good.

  4. I went with Rising Strong. I thought about getting Fates and Furies, but I’ve been wanting to read some Brene Brown and this is a perfect opportunity.

  5. I went with Fates and Furies. It was just in the most recent issue of Entertainment Weekly and they gave it a B+. From them that is high praise and it sounded right up my alley a little bit of chick lit novel mixed with shades of Gone Girl.

  6. I’m I’m so conflicted! I want to read Rising Strong and the History of Love. Looks like I might get both if I can’t decide.

    • I had the same dilemma!

  7. As a California native, I had to go for “Gold Fame Citrus,” but that “Smaller and Smaller Circles” book sounds awesome, too! I added it to my holds list at my local library. This is my first month of the sub, and I’m exciting not only to get a nice new book each month but also find some good suggestions for some library options… If I bought all the books I wanted to read, I’d never be able to pay rent! Ha.

  8. Do they email like Birchbox asking you to pick your selection?

    • Hm, I didn’t get an email yet, so I just logged into my account on their site to select.

      • I did the same thing – it shows the five books and you click on the check mark above the book to select that book.

        • Thanks! I figured it out lol.

    • If you haven’t received one yet, your email will be coming shortly!
