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.
Q: I know it says fiction, but can the book be tailored to our preferences?Asked by Valerie P., August 2019
Yes you may choose a genre for your novel. :)
Q: Are these paperback or hardcover books?Asked by Courtney B., March 2021
Almost always paperback. Occasionally we will find hardcovers that will fit in the boxes.
Q: Have you removed the Read only option that I loved? I won’t order the option with the bath stuff.Asked by Anna W., January 2021
We still offer the Read Box but Cratejoy changed how the listings are set up. If you scroll down the page you'll find a link to both the Read and Read & Relax boxes.
Thanks so much!!
Q: Can you change the genre of the book each month, if desired?Asked by Nekia S., January 2021
Sure - just let us know when you want to make a change.
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.
Obsessed!!! I absolutely LOVE my box! With everything going on in the world this was just what I needed in my life!
I love all the items inside! The candle smells so nice- and the treats are great! The salts are much needed:) I recommend this box and am looking forward to future boxes!
I just got my first box and i love it! I got the read, relax and recharge box. I’m so excited to try out my bath salts and soap! Smells wonderful!
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 just received mine today. What do we do if there was some slight damage to the box??
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.
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 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 purchased two of these book boxes for a birthday gift for my daughter and she is loving them. She has received 2 each of the Read, and the Read & Relax boxes. She says everything is lovely!!! Tasty treats and drinks, divine smelling candles and bath products, and she is very much enjoying the book selections. I so appreciate the option for her to choose her books or have them be a surprise. It is so unique for a subscription box to offer and I love that. I will definitely be renewing her subscrition once my gift has ended.
This is such a good idea! I received all of the items and it looks lovely. I am excited to try everything.
Boxes ordered today will feature matching "Canceled Plans Are the Best Plans" candles, bath salts and soap along with a treat and beverage.
Lucky subscribers who opened their "Love Me Enough To Leave Me Alone" boxes were greeted with lovely romantic floral fragrances.
Did you get this box? Lovely variations on patchouli are featured in the "I'd Rather Be Home With a New Book" box.
