  1. Has anyone received the 2nd free month yet? I only received the first shipment and upon logging into my account, it show that my next shipment is in May, when the 3 month offer would be expired.

  2. My son got his book in mail today good timing ( are out for snow)❄️
    He got a chapter book ” Seekers , the melting Sea”
    He has been enjoying it.☺️?

  3. I received the first book today and I am excited to give it to my son. I love this subscription box because I love books. My older daughters should arrive tomorrow. I am plan on keeping this subscription for as long as they do it…

  4. This sounds great!
    I signed up but now I can’t get back to “my account” when I log in I don’t see anywhere to click to access my information or manage my subscription. Is anyone else having this issue?

    • I just tried and i can not either. I was wondering about shipping and the adding a second book option but once you log in you can not get to your account.

  5. Any idea if you can do two subs to this? I’d like to do one for my 5 y/o son, but also would like to sign up for the YA one for me 🙂

    • I did two subscriptions and got both of them for free for the first 3 months just click add another when finished with one! Good Luck!

  6. I signed up for both of my kids
    Great for all these snow days

  7. What a deal! I signed up for my 3 year-old son who loves to read. Looking forward to more reading time together! Thanks for the post!

  8. Is the shipping and everything completely free?

    • From what I saw when I signed up yes.

    • Completely free for a trial. Naturally we’d go out of business if people only took the offer to get the offer. We think you’ll be so happy with getting a $13-$$20 book and shipping for $6.99 a month it’s a wise investment in people!:)

  9. This is such an amazing deal. I too love to read YA books, especially the numerous dystopian future books (The Hunger Games series, How I Live Now, etc.) As a librarian to be, I think this deal would be great for collection development. You could get all the staff to sign up for an age or age range and a year of books would be less than 5.25 a month ( longer subs are less than 6.99) with the 3 free months deal. I am going to share this with the Library Director where I am doing my internship. Big Brownie Points! Also this is a great deal for your home collection. I tend to see things through a librarian’s lens first then a personal one when it comes to all things books and research. Thanks for sharing this Liz!

    • Yay! (And Yay for YA!) 🙂 ?

  10. Love your newsletters, so informative. This one has to be my favorite. What a deal, 3 months free off of an already ridiculously cheap price 🙂 thank you! I’ve been searching for a monthly subscription for my daughter who’s 5. She sees me get my bunch of subscriptions each month & wanted something something for herself lol so this is perfect. We are big book lovers in my home.

    • I am so glad you are excited about receiving your Story Surprise. We had a great response from Liz and appreciate the wonderful review.

      If you have any questions, please reach out to me. After your 3 months trial, the service is just $6.99 a month with free shipping always. It drops to $5.79 a month if you purchase a year.

      Let’s bring back Storytime!

      • Its Donna from Story Surprise again. I didn’t give you my email – Business has exploded and its that energizing busy you all know, I am sure.

        I am at [email protected]

        Let’s start a Reading Revolution!

  11. Wow, that’s a heck of a deal. Have to sign up!

  12. Sign my daughter that’s 21 months up. She loves books so let’s see what we get on the free months.

  13. I did the same but for myself since I still read a lot of YA. I figure it’s free so if I like it great and if not I will donate to the library.

  14. I just signed up for the teen option. You can’t beat free! We’ll see how my daughter and I like it.

    • I did the same but for myself because I still read a ton of YA. I figured they are free why not see if I like what they send. If not I will donate to the library.
