Hello and happy Wednesday. In today’s post, I’ll share with you what I got for my September Book Case Club, which was the last I received in a while. Let’s get started, shall we?
I have to confess that I had no idea about any of the books I got in September, so it was a nice surprise for me.
The paperback is called The Walled City by Ryan Graudin. I had to read the synopsis and from what I got, it’s set in the Walled City of China and it involves a lot of action and adventure as our main characters try to escape. It sounds like a very fast-paced read, which I’m always down for, and I think it’s going to be nothing like what I usually reach for. I’m intrigued.
The hardcover is called Harrison Squared by Daryl Gregory. It’s a story about a boy called Harrison Harrison, who has a special sensitivity towards paranormal/supernatural stuff and has a big trauma regarding the ocean because he had to witness his father’s death there. His mom goes missing one day and he has to face his fears and embark in an adventure to find her.
Obviously, adventure and seemingly impossible quests are some of the themes for the September box, and I love how intriguing both novels sound. I am definitely excited to read and review them.
How about you? Do you like adventure novels? If so, tell me in the comments the title of your favorite one.

Hello and happy Wednesday. Today I’m bringing you my second unboxing of Book Case Club, which to me is the perfect subscription box for people who want to discover new books at a great price.
I was surprised when I opened my August Book Case Club box and discovered not one but two hardcovers. Hardcovers are more expensive than paperbacks, and yet I got these two for $10, which is the monthly price for BCC.
Now the reason why I love book subscription boxes is that I’m given the chance to discover new books, books that I probably wouldn’t buy for myself but that are just waiting to be read, you know?
In August I got Triple Moon, which is the first book in the Summer on East End series by Melissa de la Cruz. Now, I’ve heard a ton about this author but haven’t read any books from her, so I’m very excited to get my first one and find out why so many people like her.
The second book I got is Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley. I had seen this book a ton at one of my local bookstores and had toyed with the idea of buying it. I’m honestly glad I didn’t buy it then and there because now I have it, thanks to Book Case Club, and in comparison it’s as if I didn’t have to pay anything for it. This sounds like a badass book and I can’t wait to read it.
Have you heard about or read this books? If so, tell me what you think about them!

Hello and happy Wednesday. I know that not all of us have a ton of money to spend in books or in subscription boxes, and even if we did have that money, but we still want to get the good stuff. This is why I’m always looking for new subscription boxes that are not expensive, and I obviously try some of them as well.
A few months ago, I came across Book Case Club and I thought it was fantastic for several reasons. Firstly, it costs $10, which means it’s probably the cheapest book subscription box out there. But that’s not all because I was pleasantly surprised to find I got sent two books instead of one. That’s right, every month, for the price of ten dollars, you will get sent two books: a paperback and a hardcover.
Have you noticed that I’ve called this a book box instead of a bookish box? Book Case Club if you want a subscription box only for the books. Boxes with tons of goodies, like OwlCrate, are always fun, don’t get me wrong, but they’re not for everybody, and I think in that way Book Case Club provides an alternative so that you can get cool books without getting the goodies (and paying for them).
For the month of July I got were Not If I See You First by Eric Lindstrom and Lies I Told by Michelle Zink. I’d heard about both books before and had them in my personal wish list, so it’s great that I now own them.
Now that you know about Book Case Club, would you be interested on trying it? Why or why not?
