Very disappointed that the gifts was not better quality, also the book was published 50 years ago not very selective! My box arrive damage to poor delivered. I believe something was not right about service. I expected to be more glamorous and updated for the price of the box!
Love my boxes and the books too. These are books I would have never picked for myself and enjoyed reading different genres. Opening the boxes when you got to the page with the notes was fun too. The items were fun novelties to enjoy. Socks were quality!
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BOOK BOX!!!
I have been lucky enough to have a few boxes!
They are well thought out and worth it!
Not opening the gifts upfront is a struggle! Hahaa
Still haven’t received anything
Brother was my first DTRH box and it was pleasantly surprised by the box. In fact I loved it so much I gifted my aunt a sub as well and we now have our own little DTRH book club. It’s really great given all the little extras (gifts and playlists) it really makes you feel like you are a part of the story which can give you a nice little thrill. Reb’s eight ball for example. It gave me goosebumps to open it. The only things I think could be slightly better is 1. Knowing shipping updates easier. And 2. I wish all the gifts were more book accurate. (This is just me being picky at this point) mamas wooden spoon, I would have liked a real wooden spoon over the trinket spoon with a Hannibal quote on it. It pulled me out of the fantasy instead of adding to it.
I did not enjoy this book (Brother) or the gifts included. The book was just too much for me to handle and the gifts lacked thought and were cheap. I also felt the gifts were too male oriented (except for the macramé bag which was already unraveling). I had already ended my subscription once but thought I’d give it another try. I won’t make that mistake again. The box is too expensive to be a disappointment.
There is so much thought and consideration put into each box; I highly recommend it!
I love this box! I think it's a fun idea and I like the darker nature of the books. The gifts related to the book are thoughtful and some of them even made me laugh, as they sometimes feel kind of like inside jokes. Every time I've had a question they have promptly replied and have been very nice. I really recommend this.
DTRH book boxes have really pushed me out of my normal routine. Often, the books are not ones I would have chosen for myself but then I always end up pleasantly surprised because they’re always fantastic!! Not only do they choose amazing books, but they also take the time to put attention and detail into every box.
My last box-Death on the Nile was fabulous. Instead of a bookmark, there was a ticket onto the ship-so it felt like I had a stepped onto the ship, which was the setting of the book! The gifts are always perfectly matched to what’s going on in the book. I love that the gifts aren’t always literal and instead inspired by what’s going on in the book.
With a DTRH subscription, you will fall in love with books you maybe wouldn’t have read otherwise. It’s my favorite day of the month when this box comes because it’s beyond enjoyable and the gifts are so great! Always items that are usable and bring the story to life. I highly recommend this box!!!
In comparison to other boxes, I think this one is the best for value, content and gifts, as well as attention to detail.
And great customer service!
I just got my first box and it is everything I have hoped for! I got a dark, twisted read and some really delightful gifts that I'll be keeping around the house to remind me of it for a long time after. Keeping this subscription for sure!
Always love getting this box. Books are sometimes ones I've already read but were worth reading again and the gifts tie in nicely.
I absolutely love this box. It is such a surprise as it pulls you in by page. I have recieved 2 boxes so far and July was not to be beat... I bet they do though! I have loved every box.
I have to wait on another for a bit. $50 is a little pricey for me at this time. If you can though, get this box!!
I just love this box! The books they pick are outstanding. They aren't newly released books, in my experience, and that seems to give them much more flexibility to dig around for GREAT books (that I probably missed over the years) that have so much more depth than the "beach reads" type books I get with another box. They also put so much thought into the gifts. Highly recommend!
I LOVE THIS! This is very similar to Once Upon a Book Club but with more of a dark/thriller spin. I haven’t been able to dive into the book yet but this looks AMAZING! I would soooo highly recommend for anyone who loves book subs!!
UPDATE: Finished the box and it was AMAZING. The gifts were super well thought out too. Highly recommend!!!
We are very happy you loved your book box and our gift selections !
Absolutely love this book box subscription!! Great books, lovely gifts that are super unique and bring the story to life. This coming month is my 4th month subscribing and I can't wait for my box to arrive. This really is the greatest thing ever, just wish I would have heard about it sooner. Thanx!!
Love the first book and gifts. I have only opened 3 out of 6 but they are spot on.
The book was very dark but I enjoyed it. It was a paperback. The gifts were underwhelming. There are better boxes in the same price range.
I haven't gotten all the way through it yet but I love it!
Their boxes are beautiful and impeccable, I love this box. I got 3 month subscription.
Amazing I loved everything! And the packaging was gorgeous, Can't wait for the next one!!
One of my absolute favorite subscriptions. There are a few book boxes that have you open gifts at certain parts of the story but what sets this one apart is the quality of the books themselves. They deliver their promise on dark storylines so if that’s your jam, this is the box for you. The two I’ve received thus far have been excellent, and coincidentally are based around books I likely wouldn’t have selected myself so they were also wonderful surprises. The gifts are often useful and certainly facilitate engagement with the events in the story. Shoutout also to the attention to detail in the packaging - each month’s stickers, colors, and general designs fit the books so well. Bravo!
We are elated you are enjoying your box boxes ! Thank you so for such an amazing and detailed review.
We hope you continue to enjoy your boxes as much as we enjoy curating them for you !
Happy Reading !
I wanted to try out one of these boxes and I’m glad I did! I really enjoyed the book and the gifts tied in pretty well with the story.
I love how clues are given for the upcoming boxes so you can decide whether or not the next book will interest you.
I will definitely get another one of these boxes in the future!
Were glad you enjoyed your box ! We look forward to curating your next book box when you're ready to come back.
Happy Reading !
I like this box but I do not love it. I like the thought behind the book box and the items but much of them I have no use for they get given to my kids. I am happy I gave this book box a try and I look forward to seeing what comes in the next two months I have already paid for but I do not think I will resubscribe. It is a really good box for someone who wants to full immerse themselves into the book world with little trinkets.
OK THIS BOX IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you ! We are so glad you love it !!!!
