I stumbled upon a neat book subscription service which is both affordable and wicked fun! It’s called mytrillclub and I love it. I’ve used their service only once and I have to say I’ll continue to do. This post is my review and my opinion of the company. It’s unbiased. I’m not affiliated with them by any means. With that out of the way – let me tell you more about my wicked find.
I’ve been reading about book subscription services for a while now so it was only natural that I would want to check out what the hype was about. I read and researched off course before I settled on my thrill club. Other services are pricey. Usually they can charge a monthly fee of $25.99 and $29.99 plus shipping. I thought that’s pricey.
My thrill club costs me $14.99, free shipping and I get to pick the genre I’m interested in. I opted out for Espionage and Political thrillers, but you can choose horror and thrillers too, whichever you prefer. Your box is sent to you in the beginning of the each month and I got mine in about 5 to 6 days after they shipped.
You can select if you want to get two books and a movie, or two movies and a book. I selected two books and a movie. I don’t spend enough time in front of the TV to get excited over movies, good books, on the other hand, are an entirely different topic.
This book service doesn’t let you pick your own authors or titles – it’s a surprise! This seems to be standard with book subscription services. I didn’t come across one that lets you make a personal selection. I think that’s fine, after all I want to expand my reading gamma and be introduced to new writers!
My package arrived in a nice book and it was delivered on time. I had no issues with tracking my package. My thrill club uses FedEx and you get a tracking number once your package has been shipped.
As promised, I got two books, ‘Wicked Leaks’ by Matt Bendoris and ‘His Bloody Project’ by Graeme Macrae Burnet plus a DVD.
A quick synopsis of the books, so you can get a better idea of the books.
‘Wicked Leaks’ – nurse Kelly Carter is assigned to care for a terminally ill patient who claims to have killed Princess Diana. He has a proof of it and asks the nurse to go to an abandoned garage to see for herself. After her visit the place gets burned down. The book has 4.2 star reading on Goodreads and I will be writing my review once I’m finished reading, but from the first few chapters, the book sounds promising.
‘His Bloody Project’ – is the story of a 16-year-old boy who has been accused of tripple murder circa 1869. The book’s a historical tragedy and courtroom drama. It has 4 out of 5 stars on Googreads.
