$25/month: 3 paperbacks OR 1 hardcover and 1 paperback (what we received this month)
$35/month: 4 paperbacks OR 1 hardcover and 2 paperbacks
So, when you sign up for yureka you take a little quiz that asks you about your reading tastes. My own tastes fall into the classics and contemporary fiction genres- which should give you a little insight into my selections.
This 1913 novel by D. H. Lawrence was included because I had stated that I liked classics. If I was pressed to choose a genre I enjoy the most it’s classics by far! I was a little afraid I would get books I had read but I have not read this book before. And now after looking at the wikipedia article for it I am really excited to read it!
This novel is touted as being Under the Tuscan Sun -esque which is cool because I really like that style. Somewhere between love story and character study with scenic backgrounds. The main character’s name is Penny which is going to take some getting used to since that is my oldest daughter’s name – she’s a divorcee – the character in the book, not my daughter. Either way I’m thinking this is going to be the page turner of the two books that I received in this month’s yureka books subscription box.
So in Summary
In lieu of our normal breakdown I feel it’s important to go over this subscription service in a different manner. A subscription like yureka books is all about amazing curation. I feel like I got two great book choices that I may have never chosen myself. I really like that this is a book service that is tailored to you, as that is one of a kind and I’ve never seen it done before. I was a little skeptical before I received the books because I’ve read a lot of books and thought either I wouldn’t be interested (that’s my biggest hurdle – getting into a book), or that I’d already read it. I was delighted with the my selection and am excited to sink my teeth into the pages of these books!
