I am a big reader and I love to try different book subscription boxes and I was excited to try this one after having my eye on it for a while. I purchased a 3 month subscription, thinking that it would be a good overview of what to expect every month. And generally I was disappointed. The book selections were hit or miss for me personally, but always a book I had never even heard of. The items in the box were pretty decent in matching the theme. But what brought the box down in my opinion was the quality of products. The items I received in all 3 of the boxes I purchased were so completely subpar it was shocking. There would be one quality product- a scarf or something- and the rest would (to example some items I received) be a laminated cartoony bookmark or a magnet that had a picture of a movie version of a popular book. I've seen bookmarks and magnets in other book subscription boxes and there is no comparison in terms of the quality. I know this sounds harsh but it felt like the makers were on a budget and shopped for the products in this box from a drugstore or the dollar store. Unacceptable.
I love book subscription boxes so I was excited to try this one out but ended up being pretty meh about it. The book shipped quickly and I had no issues with receiving or cancelling my subscription. I was initially unsure on the book pick, as that month it was a contemporary book which I am not a huge fan of but I ended up liking it more than I thought I would. my issue was the other goodies in the book. I believe I got the february box which I think the theme was forbidden love, and the bookish goods they included was decidedly subpar. The items were cheap and random and, to me, didn't tie in together to promote the overall theme. As I said the book selection was good but everything else was a disappointment so for me this isn't a subscription I'll try again.
Ive been wanting to try this box for a while and I was very impressed. Everything came quickly and centered on the months theme which was 'kitchen' and included useful items that I know I'll use. I think my favorite item was the silicone stretch lids- I would have expected one or two to be included in a sub box but the fact that this box gave us 6 different sizes was amazing and I cannot wait to use them and get rid of plastic wrap. Unfortunately I cannot keep this box as a recurring subscription, but I would definitely buy it again!
