This month's Fresh Fiction box, was a great one. Instead of one paperback, like in the first two, this box contained three: Second Chance Summer by Jill Shalvis, Lady be Good by Meredith Duran, and Dragon Fall by Kate MacAllister. I am definitely excited about Dragon Fall because MacAllister's writing is very fun. The ebooks I received links/codes for were Dream Man by Kimberly Dean, Doughnuts & Deadly Schemes by Janet Gradowski, Men & Martinis by Delancy Stewart, and The Same Side by GM Doporto. I am loving the cozies from Gemma Halliday publishing that I have received so far, so I know Doughnuts & Deadly Schemes will be awesome, and The Same Side is a YA (the second in a series, but the 1st is supposed free right now), so that is awesome, too.
The swag definitely fit with the "Back to School" theme: pens, paper, tote bag, and this awesome screen wipe with stylus. The candy has not been interesting me, and this one is bubble gum flavored, which makes it rather unappealing to me as I only like that flavor in actual gum.
A pretty awesome Fresh Fiction Box Not to Miss. While this month had 3 paperbacks, each box will have at least one paperback and 3-6 ebooks, along with swag, for $25 a month (you can skip months).
Late posting on this again! June, though had an awesome Awesome Pack Big Kid Pack.The subscription is $44.99 a month and you can choose the Big Kid option (for those without kids - like me), or the Family option. Their site does not have referral links set up yet, nor can you log into your account yet, but they do have a referral program, so if you do decide after reading my review to try it, I would very much appreciate if you told them you heard about it from me, rickimc [at] aol [dot] com.
For June, the main game was Helios (a $64.99 value) from Z-Man Games. I received some Z-Man games last month, and already knew this was a great game publisher. Helios is based on fantasy/mythology, so I know I will love it!
My smaller game this month was really small! Karma Mini Round (a $5.00 value) is a mint-tin sized portable card games by the makers of Set (which is one of the best games ever!). I also received this box of 10 Wild & Wonderful puzzles (a $36.99 value), which I busted open immediately.
The collectible this time was a Series 1 Micro Figure (a $3.95 value). As they are not LEGO, I really had no interest and already traded them. However, the Awesome Pack swag this month was a cool bookmark, which I love!
Aside from the colectible which was a bust for me, this month's Awesome Pack was awesome! The items actually added up t0 an amazing $110.93 value, and I got it all for $44.95, which included shipping. If you would like to subscribe, once again, I ask that you say you heard it from me, rickimc [at] aol [dot] com. (Please note: as games and collectibles can vary in price based on demand, I tried to take the price from the manufacturers site whenever possible.)
Thoughts:Interesting concept, but dragged too much. Plus, there were just a few things that seemed off, like why a girl he picks up outside of Springfield (must be IL since they are talking of crossing the river into STL) is attending Webster at the KC campus instead of the main one, and other local inconsistencies.
