Review | June Thrifty Books | The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold


I like the Thrifty Books box because it’s pretty darn affordable and it’s introduced me to some great books. I pre-paid for a year and it came out to just over $17 per box including shipping, which is on the lower end compared to other book boxes. You can read reviews of past Thrifty Books boxes here.

Review | February Thrifty Books | The Mercy of Thin Air: A Novel by Ronlyn Domingue


Thrifty Books was already one of my favorite book subscriptions but in February they really tickled my tickle bone by including a valentine with an owl and a terrible pun (“Owl always be your friend”)* that was hand signed.

Review | January Thrifty Books | The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
