Admit it - you'd rather avoid other people and spend the day alone. We totally get it - that's why we created Introverts Retreat. So order a box, ignore your phone calls, cancel your plans, and imagine a warm candle-lit bath, a good book, a cup of tea or coffee, and a tasty treat. Does it get any better than that? No. No, it absolutely does not.
  • Each box features a novel written by a female author in your choice of genre: general fiction, romance novel, mystery/thriller, young adult fiction, or a surprise genre each month. All books are in new/unread condition but may have small remainder marks on the bottom edge.
  • The Read Box includes the novel and bookmark, plus you'll receive a gourmet treat from either Sweet on Vermont or Southbury Baking Company, plus your choice of hot beverage: ground coffee from Native American Coffee, loose leaf tea from the Octavia Tea Company, or hot cocoa from Moonstruck Chocolate Company. Love sweets? We now offer the Read Box (Double Snack) option for twice the tasty goodness. This option features two servings of the snack plus your choice of two beverages.
  • The Read & Relax Box includes the novel and bookmark, plus a full-size 7-ounce scented soy candle from Introverts Retreat Comfort Candles line and eight ounces of bath salts or a 4-ounce bar of handmade scented soup. Our candles, bath salts, and soap all feature fun introvert-theme names such as "Alone Time is Relaxing Time" or "Done for the Day (Too Much Peopleing)."
  • The Read, Relax & Recharge Box has the novel, bookmark, snack, beverage, candle, bath salts or bar of soap, plus one additional bath or body care item. This box has everything you need for the perfect introverted day!
  • Are you picky about your books or just don't love surprises? That's awesome! When each box is ready to pack and ship we'll send an email with instructions on how to choose a specific book from our current collection. We also have our Introverts Retreat Best Book Promise - if you don't like the book you receive, just let us know why and we'll send you another!

Questions

Q: What's in a surprise boxAsked by Rachel K., April 2019

Introverts Retreat answered...May 2019

We call it the Ready to Ship Essentials Box now. It includes items from past boxes - but it's quite similar to the subscription box: a book written by a female author, one of our exclusive book marks and 5 or 6 additional items. It's a great way to get a box right away!

Q: I know it says fiction, but can the book be tailored to our preferences?Asked by Valerie P., August 2019

Introverts Retreat answered...August 2019

Yes you may choose a genre for your novel. :)

Q: Is the YA Fiction YA Fantasy or not really? Asked by Thumy V., September 2020

Introverts Retreat answered...September 2020

Not necessarily - we have different sub-genres of YA novels. However, after you subscribe you'll be able to choose a specific book each month from our collection, if you prefer (look for instructions in your email two days or so before the box ships).

Q: Is it possible to request all vegan products? Asked by Jennifer R., September 2020

Introverts Retreat answered...September 2020

You can send an email or contact us after subscribing and we'll make a note to be extra careful for you. Tea or coffee would be a better choice than cocoa. Our candles are soy and the vast majority of bath and body are vegan.

I gave this box as a Mother's Day gift. The recipient was thrilled every month with the thoughtful contents - the candles smelled amazing! This is a great gift to pamper someone who always takes care of others.

I just received mine today. What do we do if there was some slight damage to the box??

Introverts Retreat said...Jul 01, 2020

The blue and white box itself usually takes some small amount of damage from the shipping process - as do all shipping boxes. If any of the items inside the box are damaged, just send us a picture and we'll see about replacing them. Otherwise, in the future, if you want an undamaged blue cat box, you could email us and request a bubble wrap and poly mailer - that would protect the box as well.

Thoughtful and fun!

This box was so thoughtful! Receiving it in the mail (very fast shipping and great packaging) was such a treat. The items are all high-quality and the candle, soap, and body scrub I received smell amazing. Thank you for the treat!

I've subscribed to two of these boxes: Read, and Read & Relax. I really liked both of my first boxes and the owner provided wonderful customer service, quickly answering all of my questions. And, when the Cratejoy system messed up my order selections, the owner immediately provided a replacement of my desired selection even though it wasn't her fault.

The candle and soap both smell fabulous. And, I loved the drink and treat, too.

I get 10 book boxes per month from 5 different companies right now and this is one of my new favorites. I'm very much looking forward to the rest of my subscrition installments!

Love me some me

Love this box, too bad I live in a building with thieves. I will more then likely have to go back to work in the fall and someone will steal this box from my door before I get home to get it.

I absolutely loved the one that I have gotten so far. I purchased the highest tier box, and I loved the degree to which I was able to customize it. Also, I didn't receive a candle in the first box so I messaged the seller. Within 3 days I received a candle :) Excellent customer service, great book and item choices!
