Today I am unboxing my recent haul of The Inn At Magnolia Harbor series (women’s fiction) inspired by the subscription service from Annie’s Fiction. While I was shopping for another book subscription service (because I just can’t seem to have too many 😉 ), I came across the Annie’s Fiction monthly book subscription services. They have many different ones to choose from: cozy mystery, women’s fiction, Amish fiction, and more recently romantic suspense.

Each service starts with a hard cover (also available in audiobook and e-book), for $1.99 plus $4.95 shipping. Subsequent shipments are $12.99-14.99 per book plus the same shipping. This amounts to $20 per book and even though they are hard cover, I just wasn’t comfortable signing onto the service at that price. So I did some shopping around and found some bargains on used copies.

Incidentally, if you are interested in checking out other book box subscriptions, you can check out these posts. I also post my unboxings on my YouTube channel.


I ordered from one seller on eBay.

The shipment included the first, second, third, fifth, and sixth books from The Inn At Magnolia Harbor series.

Where Hope Blooms by DeAnna Julie Dodson

Safe Harbor by Elizabeth Penney

Binding Vows by Gayle Roper

At Summer’s End by Rachael Phillips

Mending the Past by DeAnna Julie Dodson

Plus there was a bonus book from the Annie’s Secrets of the Quilts series (book two).

Decadent Deceit by DeAnna Julie Dodson

Here is everything I received in the shipment.

Overall Opinion

When you purchase items from individual sellers on websites like eBay and Amazon, you take your chances with the actual condition that you receive. The majority of experiences that I have had with eBay sellers have been positive. That was evident in this purchase where the books are all gently used, but in good condition.

If I had purchased these six books through Annie’s Fiction service, I would have paid a total of $106.64. With this shipment from eBay, I paid a total of $21.37 which is a really good.

I’m not knocking anyone who subscribes to Annie’s fiction. It’s brand new, hard cover, clean fiction. But if you do a little shopping around, you can find better prices on gently used copies.
