Was so very excited to receive my first Bookishly Box! I love the book selection and sleeve design, along with the book mark and tea! I only wish it hadn’t taken so long to get to me, as I live in the U.S., however, it was worth the wait! I love this box and I’m excitedly anticipating the arrival of my next box! ☺️
Okay, so when I re-ordered this and got the first book that was the same, I was very disappointed, but it is only the first book that was the same, 2nd book was different. I think this is a very nice set of items a book, bookmark, and some tea. Thank you
So sorry you are disappointed we can certainly swap the book for you and you can choose one of our current titles.
Our welcome pack book is always the same title then the following months of the subscription are new ones so will not be duplicates.
love this box. super excited to see what the next months will bring!
excellent customer service as well.
I'm extremely disappointed in this box. It contains one small bag of loose tea (instead of 4 bags like advertised) and a small flimsy paperback with print so small I cannot even read it? There's been mention of stationary? I've never gotten any. I'm extremely saddened and won't be renewing my subscription. It's been a complete waste of money to me. I'm sorry.
So far I'm enjoying the Classic of the Month! The coffees have been delicious and last for a while and I love the book sleeves, discussion points and bookmarks.
I was receiving this box for about half a year and was delighted. I received some not-so-famous books of well known authors, and it was a whole new world for me.
The stationery was cute, and I used it several times as a gift. It looks unique but not too strange.
And of course the tea. It is really great, they have so much different flavors. Personally, I loved the Christmas blend that I received last year, it was rooibos based (if I am not mistaken), but when drinking it was not so much about rooibos, just really Christmasish :)
I was very glad to receive this box. I got the book, the bookmark *which I adore*, the notepad and the tea *it`s very tasty*. I am not planning to continue my subscription because I totally missed that the books are not new. But it`s my fault, so I should be more attentive in future.
I love the different types of books that come from this subscription. They're all guaranteed vintage, and every one I've received has been great.
I received my first box today and was beyond excited when I got home from work and saw it! I was nervous that it might not live up to my expectations, but I had absolutely nothing to worry about! I chose the tea option and received a nice type of black tea. There were also several postcards with some of my favorite books and a cute bookmark. The book itself was "Rebecca" by Daphne du Maurier (which I sadly have never read but am starting right now). It was a little worn but well loved and so beautifully wrapped I almost didn't want to open it. This box is perfect and I love it!
I received my first box. I loved it. The packaging was very thoughtful. The bookmark is cute. I loved the tea! I’m happy with the book as well. Overall, a really great box. Thank you!
I am so so impressed with this box. The price was completely fair and the items included were of good quality. Sometimes the pictures make the subscription seem like it will be fancier than it is, but in this case everything was just as adorable as I hoped it would be. Random, but wonderful, vintage book. Adorable stationary. Nice bookmark. Delicious bag of tea. And I appreciated that the book wasn't just covered in tissue, but actually individually wrapped in nice wrapping paper. Really felt like I was receiving a gift. Will definitely order again in the future.
I love this subscription so much! The stationary was an afterthought for me- I was after the tea and the book, but I have come to cherish it as much as the others. They are beautiful, and I have made use of every piece I've received. I've had this subscription a year now, and never received the same piece of stationary twice! The tea has been excellent to be able to carry a high quality bag tea with for those work breaks or travel excursions, and has delicious, unique flavors. The book arrives beautifully wrapped, with a different bookmark each month. And they are vintage books, for sure! Some are in perfect condition, but some are very well loved. I've actually treasured my well loved ones even more than the perfect conditions- most often a penguin collection, but any type may show up, and often with intriguing looks into the lives of the times the book was published (canned dog food was discontinued during WWII- did you know?). This subscription has far surpassed any other book box I've tried!
My 2nd Bookishly Tea box arrived today & I'm delighted again. I'm intrigued by both months' books & am midway through #1. Neither are books I would have selected on my own & I'm thoroughly happy with each. Matching stationery & book mark (with literary quotes) are great. Tea is delicious. Thanks so much!
I received my first month's box and I am absolutely in love. The coffee is lovely and I was surprised to see that the book was beautifully wrapped. It felt like the perfect gift from me to me!
Great customer service
My box took a while to arrive (with it shipping overseas it’s understandable) but it was well worth the wait! The packaging was very cute and neat. I could totally see myself getting this box again.
I just received my first subscription and it's quite wonderful. I adore the stationary, I can't wait to try the tea and the book, while I am unfamiliar with it (The Angel in the Corner by Monica Dickens) I look forward to starting. The book is in excellent condition. The edition, printed in the 1950s, is yellowed in all the right places but there are no rips to be found. All in all, I highly recommended this subscription box to my friends and I know of at least one who quickly went and signed up. Thank you Bookishly and I look forward to receiving more goodies from you!!!
After receiving my first package I was absolutely overjoyed! The book that arrived was a beautiful vintage copy of Richard Keverne's novel "Carteret's Cure". It was a bit battered, with fragile yellowed pages and a taped together spine, but that's why I love it! All of the stationary was lovely from what the book was wrapped in to the set of postcards. A great monthly treat 5/5.
Recieved my first crate and I couldn't be happier! Delicious tea, lovely vintage edition, beautiful little postcards...absolutely wonderful little present to myself!
Delightful boxes that make me smile each time I open one
Bought a few months of this as a birthday gift for my mum and she's been very happy with it!
I subscribe for just a month to try it (coffee & book club), I ordered it on July 7th and it arrived today (all the way to Lima, Peru). The package was on a good state, the book came wrapped on a really nice and resistant paper. I have never heard of the book I received, it would probably cost me a lot more if I were to buy it online.
I'll renew my subscription and I hope to have the same nice experience.... The coffee is really good too
I subscribed to the Classic of the Month Club. I loved both the book & tea and everything was packaged nicely. The package also arrived slightly more than a week after my order, which is pretty fast for an international order and the delivery charge was reasonably priced. However, I found the subscription a bit pricey overall for the two items that I received. I might subscribe from time to time to indulge myself but not every month.
A cute box. My favourite item wast the tea, which was exquisite! The book is a cheap Wordsworth Classics, but the Bookishly cover and the bookmark are very cute. I'd say that like most of the subscription boxes, it's a bit under the value, but over all I'd recommend this box, since it's not that expensive and the international shipping unlike many other boxes is really low.
Book selection was just bad. A dated history of the pharaohs that looks like a garage sale dump. Pages are brown and completely unappetizing to read. The cratejoy description and reviews seemed more like "classic, vintage" than throwaway books. Tea, packaging and stationary are good. Super disappointed in book choice, and will probably just throw it out because I don't even know a library that will take this. Having a preference of type of book could have saved it.
