How Does this work?
So the concept is pretty simple.
You subscribe to a plan (be it a one time try or a 3-month plan) and simply mention your favourite genre. The guys at FictionCrate would select an interesting novel in that genre and send it to you in a nicely designed box aka crate. You wouldn’t know what book it is, until you actually receive it and each time a nice goodie comes along with it as well.
My FictionCrate Box
I love surprise gifts, esp if it comes in the form of a nicely gift-wrapped book. Apart from this I also got a classic T-Shirt that read “A book A Day, keeps reality away”.
Definitely story of my life!
The book I received was titled “Woman in Lodge 10”, written by Ruth Ware and touted to be a murder mystery & thriller. Hopefully, this would give me company for the next few days at least
Pricing of FictionCrate Subscription
Their classic programme starts from 499/month which includes one surprise book and a customised goodie with free shipping as well. The 3-month plan costs 1450 and you get 1 book & a customised gift every month, for 3 months consecutively. There are also other premium plans ranging from 700 to 2050 which also carries an additional T-Shirt every month (trust me they are super classy).
I happened to notice all their books are actually priced 8$ + (500+), so technically you get to save a little bit as well.
Their site gives you a detailed split of all plans.
Note: I was part of a blogger outreach program by the nice folks at Fictiocrate and hence invited to review their program. However the above is an honest unbiased review of this book subscription program.
