What is Just Books Box?
Just Books Box is a monthly book subscription box. Each Little Box has one advertised author and a similar book by another author. Each Big Box has one advertised author and three similar books by other authors. Each book will be the start of a series, so you can go out and read the rest of them. Or you can dip your toe into each different series and see if you want to jump in to the deep end. Each Box will have a specific theme every month, but all books will be in the realm of the genre you chose. For instance, the Fantasy Box may include books with vampires, fairies, or witches. The Thriller Box may include police, detectives, or beachfront suspense. No, you can’t know what the theme of the month is. Life is full of surprises. Let this be a pleasant one.
•For $15 a month, you get two paperbacks in a Little Box.
•For $30 a month, you get four paperbacks in a Big Box.
•You can choose one of these genres or get the Mystery Box. The Mystery Box has a different theme each month and you have absolutely no idea what books you are getting until you receive them!
Books I Received
Just Books Box sent me the Mystery Box for March! The theme of this box was Teenage Dreams.
•Oh My Goth by Gena Showalter: Jade Leigh is a nonconformist who values individuality above all else. She has a small group of like-minded Goth friends who wear black, dabble in the dark arts, and thrive outside the norm. They’re considered the “freaks” of their high school. But when Jade’s smart mouth lands her in trouble — again — her principal decides to teach her a lesson she’ll never forget. Taken to a remote location where she is strapped down and sedated, Jade wakes up in an alternate universe where she rules the school. But her best friends won’t talk to her, and the people she used to hate are all Goth. Only Clarik, the mysterious new boy in town, operates outside all the cliques. And only Mercedes, the Barbie clone Jade loathes, believes that Jade’s stuck in a virtual reality game — because she’s stuck there, too, now living the life of a “freak.” Together, they realize they might never get back to reality…and that even if they do, things might never be the same.
•TTYL by Lauren Myracle: This funny, smart novel follows the friendship of three 16 year old girls as they experience some of the typical pitfalls of adolescence: boys, queen-bee types, a flirty teacher, beer, crazy parents, and more. Lauren Myracle has a gift for dialogue and characterization, and the girls emerge as three distinctive and likable personalities through their Internet correspondence. This light, fast-paced read is told entirely in instant message format, the first book ever for young adults to be written so.
•Olivia Twisted by Vivi Barnes: Tossed from foster home to foster home, Olivia’s seen a lot in her sixteen years. She’s hardened, sure, though mostly just wants to fly under the radar until graduation. But her natural ability with computers catches the eye of Z, a mysterious guy at her new school. Soon, Z has brought Liv into his team of hacker elite―break into a few bank accounts, and voila, he drives a motorcycle. Follow his lead, and Olivia might even be able to escape from her oppressive foster parents. As Olivia and Z grow closer, though, so does the watchful eye of Bill Sykes, Z’s boss. And he’s got bigger plans for Liv.
•Marked by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast (House of Night): The House of Night series is set in a world very much like our own, except in 16-year-old Zoey Redbird’s world, vampyres have always existed. In this first book in the series, Zoey enters the House of Night, a school where, after having undergone the Change, she will train to become an adult vampire–that is, if she makes it through the Change. Not all of those who are chosen do. It’s tough to begin a new life, away from her parents and friends, and on top of that, Zoey finds she is no average fledgling. She has been Marked as special by the vampyre Goddess, Nyx. But she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers. When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school’s most elite club, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny–with a little help from her new vampyre friends.
