I am really excited for the October 2017 Fresh Fiction Not To Miss Box! I just received my box in the mail and the books this month sound amazing. I think this might be one of my favorite boxes so far. I enjoy getting book mail because it feels like Christmas! The reason Fresh Fiction Not To Miss Box is one of my favorite monthly book subscription boxes is because I love the selections and thought that is put into each box. The books I receive are from authors I know and have read before or authors that are new that I am wanting to read. The amount of books you receive in each box is well above the $25.95 a month price. I also like that I get a combination of paperback books and ebooks. This way I always have something to read, even on the go. Fresh Fiction Not To Miss Box is the perfect subscription box for booklovers!
Fresh Fiction Not To Miss Box is a monthly book subscription box that sends you a box of 3 – 5 print books and 2 – 3 eBooks in a random assortment from the books the Fresh Fiction team selected for the month. No two boxes are exactly alike. I like that the books are ones that I like to read and ones that I may not pick for myself.
October 2017 Selections I Received:
The Scotsman Who Saved Me: Seven Brides for Seven Scotsmen Book #1 by Hannah Howell From New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell comes a brand new series featuring the MacEnroys, a family of seven strong, seductive Scottish brothers who have come to America with nerves of steel—and who will take no prisoners when it comes to love… A brutal attack on Emily Stanton’s family has left her for dead . . . until she is found in the woods by a handsome stranger with a thick brogue who vows to protect her. There’s only one problem: As a woman with a noble English background, she has no business keeping company with such a man. For Scotsman Iain MacEnroy, Emily’s high-tone accent is a bitter reminder of the oppressive regime he left behind. The last thing he needs is to be burdened by the needs of a beautiful, blue-eyed Englishwoman. But taking care of elegant, educated Emily begins to transform Iain in ways he never imagined. Could it be that the deep divisions from the old world no longer apply in the new—and that Iain and Emily can share a passion as lush and wild as the Scottish highlands themselves? Goodreads = Amazon
