Sent as gift for my niece. She received today, which was perfect because it is her birthday! The package came beautifully wrapped as described with a lovely bag of tea, book, book marker and description of book. So nice. I’m glad I selected the 6-month plan.
The book arrived in good condition. The coffee that I received was also a great touch to the overall experience. There is a post strike going on in the UK so I will not rate shipping at this time since this issue was unrelated to the company. Satisfied with the experience.
The book was exactly what I wanted and absolutely stunning. Their customer service and quick response to a shipping issue was unmatched!
Came in 8 days, excellent quality for the book and tea, love the book cover and love the tea. Definitely recommend.
Costed more then what it said but I'm guessing that's cuz it's shipped from the UK and I'm in Canada. So the shipping can cost more if ur in a different part of the world.
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.
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'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.
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! ☺️
love this box. super excited to see what the next months will bring!
excellent customer service as well.
Great customer service
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!
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.
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.
Bought a few months of this as a birthday gift for my mum and she's been very happy with it!
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.
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 the three month subscription as a gift from my son. Was surprised when I received the first two parcels only two weeks apart. The books are not really to my taste, my son thought they were meant to be new books, but I really enjoyed the tea and stationery. The packaging was lovely. I won't continue with the subscription, though I would consider one more to my taste.
Review of Pretty Ugly Lies
by Pamela Crane
Pamela Crane has written another awesome book.
This one is a departure from the traditional mystery in that it begins typically enough with a murder and an unknown perpetrator; however, as you read further, the murder will be nearly forgotten.
You will instead be caught up in the frustration, hopefulness, despair and reconciliation, order and disorder of the characters as they struggle through their lives.
Then, POW! the mystery is back and we know who committed the murder and why.
To say that this story is multifaceted is an understatement. To say that it is a darn good tale is an understated truth.
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!
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.
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 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 received a badly damaged book that's practically falling apart. I'm incredibly disappointed.
Sorry to hear you're disappointed with your book. Everyone's experience and expectation of a vintage book is different and we understand that. We send out over 2000 books a month and we try very hard to ensure what we send out is as good a quality as possibly can be. If you contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address we'll send you a replacement book.
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!!!
