Really love Authentic Books box!

I really enjoy Authentic Books box! I love that you get to pick between very different books and that the items all relate and fit the look/feel/story of the book itself. They are definitely all about self care and pampering yourself with this box, and I love the aesthetic of this box and also the owner's mission. I love the candles so much! I also love that they have a give-back component to each box.
If they picked a book that you already know you want, it's like a little extra experience to get the box for the book. Give these guys a try!

Amazingly Crafted!

Authentic Books is the best! You can tell each item is thouroughly thought about to coordinate with the
Book theme. The items are all amazing and from small businesses. I have NEVER been disappointed. Opening this box is like Christmas!

I got a little impatient waiting for my first box, buy I must say that I finally received it and I am excited, and looking forward to getting future boxes. I haven’t started reading yet, but I am so excited for this subscription. This subscription box is put together so well, with all of the items that you receive and go with the theme and title of the book is so fun.

Wonderful experience

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.

Beautiful product!
