Overall, I really love this box! The items are about the same quality as most other book-themed boxes, (i.e. hit and miss, which is why I did a 4 for overall rating) but I absolutely love how each item is tied directly into the story. The books are great too, and you really feel part of the story as you open each wrapped gift. Fun!
I tried this box out for a few months and overall enjoyed it enough to let my subscription renew each time. However, the shipping delays this year have been very disappointing and seem like poor planning on the part of the curation team. I don't pretend to know what goes into putting together a subscription box, but as a customer, I expect to receive things when promised. The timing of renewals is already frustrating since you renew before you even receive the box and can't decide whether or not to continue the subscription based on reviewing the box's contents; these delays just make that even more frustrating.The books are always great but the extras are hit and miss and with the shipping problems, it's just not a good fit for me anymore.
Absolutely not worth it. The cost of the 2 books was $22, the cost of the box is $25 so basically I paid extra for the "swag" which was a few mini tootsie rolls, a mini post it note pad, and a cheap plastic measuring spoon. One of the books is even free on kindle unlimited! Absolutely ridiculous. Cancelling immediately.
