Subscription book boxes
As I mentioned in my last post I have been trying out some monthly book box subscription.
A few others I have tried out are:
$34.99 per month plus shipping – within this box one gets a YA book and some bookish goodies. They try to send items that we as readers can use. Items such as food or something wearable like t-shirts. They have monthly subscriptions along with a Gilmore Girls special box. I will be getting the July and August box from them but decided to cancel my subscription.
July is An Awful Big Adventure – Review coming once I get it.
August is I’d Rather Be A Mermaid
Note: These pictures are not mine but from the creative minds of LitCube. Those are the pictures used to announce the themes for each month.
$29.99 per month, $86.98 3 month prepay, $167.94 6 month prepay – all plus shipping.
Found within this book is a YA new release Book along with several bookish goodies. Goodies might be jewelry, totes, yummy treats, pins, and more. They also include a wonderful note telling the buyer about the novel and the items within the crate. Also included in the box is a hint at what they will find in the next month’s box.
At the moment I plan on keeping my subscription to the box. I received my first one in July Which was Good Vs Evil (I got evil!). Review once I receive my missing info card which was left out but the Owlcrate team are sending a owl my way with a new one.
July is Fast Times At YA High – This box will contain a funny high school love story by a queen of contemporary. Also included are items inspired by high school sweethearts and items based on the school of our dreams……..HOGWARTS!!!!
Trying in August
Along with Owlcrate I plan on trying two more book boxes. Those are
$22.99 per month plus $5.99 shipping. It’s currently on sale from $29.99 per month. BooklyBox is different – with each book box purchase they donate one book to a less fortunate country. Inside the box is a brand new book from the genre of the subscribers choice ( adult fiction, business, children 7-12, fantasy, mystery, sci-fi, shelf help, and young adult) a bookmark, some tea, and two different items every month that will make a difference in the reading experience. Also included in the box is a report of where you donation went and how it will make a difference.
As a lover of charity work I’m excited to spend money on this book box knowing that some of the money is helping out others.
$34.99 per month, $100.99 3 month prepay, $199 6 month prepay, $390 12 month prepay – all plus shipping. This is a unique reading experience and I debated to sign up but ended up caving and going for it.
Inside the box will be a book to read. Which currently they are adult books but the creators want to branch out to a YA book box soon. Along with the book is a 5×7 quote print and 2-4 gifts that will match a quote or item mentioned in the book. What makes it a experience is that each gift is wrapped in paper with a page number. And the one rule for the box is to open the gifts as you read the book and land on the corresponding page. Pretty fun! Also include is a book club discussion questions for each month. Each question will have a date next to it and can be discussed on their Instagram page.
