Q: It only gives you the choice to choose one genre, but if I choose a subscription for several months, is it possible to get a different genre every month?Asked by Kian C., June 2022
This is actually a wonderful question, and we never thought to add a mixed genre option, so we will be adding that in. Thank you! For now, just send us a message after you order and we can just write an order note that you would like a different genre each month. So when ordering, just choose the genre you would like first!
Q: For fantasy books, can I request those with minimal to no romance? It’s really a dislike in books. If not, can I at least request no NSFW as this is a gift for my younger sister?Asked by Salem R., January 2022
Hi Salem! I believe the best thing to do would be to offer her fantasy books from the tween selection to make sure there is no romance.
Q: The writers box includes an adult fiction novel, is there any way to change that into a fantasy or young adult book?Asked by Lindy T., September 2021
Of course! Just send me an email with your preferred genre!
Q: Can I request 2 or 3 specific genres I want to receive books from Asked by Ashley S., March 2021
Of course! With so many wonderful book genre's to choose from, it's hard to tell which ones someone specifically enjoys the most. I want to make sure I choose the books that are right for you!
Update to my earlier review. I did finally receive my first box, relatively quickly after I posted this review. I don’t remember which book I received (since I get books from several other boxes). I was not displeased with the box which included what has become my new favorite pen. There were some bath related products as well that seem pleasant. I have updated my stars on the review page, but shipping was still a 1 because of the extreme delay from the time I was charged and having the subscription renew before receiving the first box. I have cancelled my subscription (at least temporarily until I receive my second box,
I was very frustrated that my first box did not ship before my subscription renewed. Shipping information stated a label had been created and it was sitting somewhere in Pittsburgh. Very upset that I did not get a chance to review the first box before the subscription renewed.
Well since the tracking for my first box that is supposed to be for the 11th has not updated in 6 days can't say it's been good. It says the label was created but it was never sent. Contact support haven't heard back yet. I was really excited for this what a bummer.
Update: I did receive a handmade journal in a separate package about a week following writing this review.
Overall I liked this box. It had a lot of cute items, and its obvious that some thought went into putting the box together.
The handmade journal was part of why I had wanted this box as opposed to just buying the reader subscription. So, I was a little disappointed that the notebook I received does not appear to be handmade.
I had expected something similar to previous boxes/pictures, and what came in looks like it came out of a bulk package of small notebooks. I wouldn't take any points off for that if it weren't advertised as being handmade in the description under the "subscription" section of the listing.
So far I have enjoyed the book (I'm a few chapters in), and the bookmark is super cute!
The box came with two stickers that aren't featured in the picture. I put them on a journal that I already had before taking the picture.
I haven't really used the pen too much, the sticker on it says its' a Kacogreen brand pen. It has red ink, which is fine for journaling and story writing, and other personal writing, but not really for everyday use (since most forms and things I would use it for have to be black or blue). But I've got tons of black and blue pens, so a red one isn't a bad thing.
I do appreciate the amount of care...
I am obsessed with this box. It was so thoughtfully created and just what I needed to feel reconnected to my love for writing and reading. I requested for my book to be a classic novel so Wuthering Heights was a pleasant surprise! I’m already enjoying the read with a cup of tea and highly recommend this box for someone looking for a unique subscription box
Received a book with a bookmark twice. Same book 2 times. No pens nor stickers. Was disappointed and not happy that my account was charged way before I even got my order. Do not recommend!
I am so sorry your boxes were not as you expected! 90% of my inventory are books of only one copy, so for you to receive the same book twice is super rare and completely unintentional. I would be happy to refund you for your second copy or send another book in its place!
You ordered the subscription "New Books Every Month (Adult Fiction)" for $8.00 per month which comes with a new book and a bookmark. It does not include pens or stickers, which is why you did not receive them. That would be the Writing Box, a separate product, which is around $30 per month. I'm so sorry for the confusion.
I have an email from you that states: "I was charged twice...
A great, affordable subscription. I got a very appealing book, Forever Friends, and a beautiful sunflower book mark. I’m enjoying them both. The shipping takes awhile but worth the wait.
Always looking forward to getting my book and lovely bookmark!!
I love this subscription. I can't wait to get more books.
Super cute box. Prompts are very creative and the used book was in perfect condition.
Update: the seller contacted me and we realized that some items were missing from my first box. I was impressed that she reached out to me and quickly resolved the issue.
I really wanted to love this box, but it’s just ok. The writing prompts all seemed to be drawn pretty directly from the used book that was included, so it felt like it would be difficult to approach the prompts without bias. It would have been really nice if the first order came with a simple journal, a nice place to keep my responses to the prompts. Everything about the box was just a little underwhelming. A great idea, but the execution could be better.
