Hi Amy!
I have sent you an email. Book titles are released on the first of every month. That is also when an email will go out to subscribers to pick their book for that current month.

Wonderful, beautiful book box! So thoughtfully and well curated to fit around your book selection. I really enjoyed opening my book box, and it was obvious there was much time and thought put into it. The products are all high quality and smell/taste amazing! I’m in love with the candle!!! Such an amazing box for “me time” when I need it most. Thank you for enhancing the reading experience to all senses and for all the time and thought put in to making these amazing boxes. Looking forward to the next one!

This is one of my favorite book boxes in the world. I truly look forward to my purple box every month !! I subscribe to a lot of book boxes (Owlcrate, FairyLoot)but this one is special and unique. Each box is curated with such care by Natisha and she truly puts so much time and effort into every single item she selects for the box. I’ve felt like every box has been magnificent and I’ve loved every product I’ve received. I also LOVE the fact that all of the 5 senses are used - this is so unique and makes it all the more immersive and fun. I also love the candles included, they’re absolutely gorgeous and smell so fresh and not overpowering at all. I love that Natisha includes matches as well !! There’s so many unique and wonderful aspects of this box I could go on for hours. If you aren’t already subscribed to this box, it is 100% worth every single dollar. 5/5 stars on every aspect !! 🌟💜

Although I am very happy with authentic books I am not with cratejoy.. the promise of the 20 % off the first box was impossible to get as the codes did not work and no one addressed the issue. So beware they do not stand behind their promise . With that being said I will not order again unless addressed . Unfortunately the person I sent the gift too loved it just not cratejoy

This is my second box and it is even better than the first one. I am amazed at how the books are paired with a candle or bath soak that perfectly matches the book's storyline. The same is true with the playlist. It takes reading a novel to a whole new level and enhances the entire experience in every sensory, spiritual and intellectual sense. Kudos to those who curated the last two boxes.

Hi from a former subscription box hater because they’re normally expensive and full of stuff I’ll get rid of in a month. NOT THIS BOX! This box is THE most intentional curated box I have ever seen. I genuinely use and love all the products that come with my order. The books are always a great selection, that even when I chose the “surprise me” option, I was still obsessed with the book.
I am a huge quality time person, so to have a whole experience created for me while I read a book is the best feeling in the world.
I cannot speak highly enough of this box! I have received three boxes and cannot wait to continue to get these every month. The price is at the perfect price point for the quality of products you receive!

I like to be able to pick my book from two very recent new books. The candle had a good scent and I like the addition of the stick matches. I haven’t been able to try the tea or bath salts. I just got the box today. I like the addition of a card. Who doesn’t need a card. Anyway, I up graded to premium and look forward to my next box.
