I bought the October and November boxes from their website since it was black friday and I got a discount. That said I will probably get a subscription from cratejoy since I will hopefully get a gift card for my birthday. I didn't see an option for a gift card on their website but I am sure it is in the works. So I promise this is a real review.
I have never bought a subscription box before. I am very delighted I chose this one as a first. I was so impressed, and pleasantly surprised. From the packaging to the items in the box everything has been well thought though and not just thrown in to fill a box. The items show quality craftsmanship and care for the theme of the book. I will definitely use everything that came in the box. (I am currently wearing the cozy socks.) Which is a huge plus.. If I wasn't going to use an item I would have no shame in passing it on to someone that I know would. The books are awesome, and not the same that everyone else is sending out . THE PENS!! They are wonderfully designed, and beautiful. I can't say enough about them.
I am glad they are using items from other small businesses in their box.
The shipping is priced well and the boxes came 2 day priority via usps. (Mine came 2-4 business days...

I absolutely adore this box. You can choose from YA/Adult or Classic boxes. And they are all always very well curated. Each box contains high quality items and they are always fun and match the book perfectly. Everyone should give this box a try. And I promise, you will fall in love with it.

Ah-mazing Book Box!

I got the I Smell Book Classic Book Box for May, and I absolutely love it! Not only is there a classic book, but there is a second book! And the bookish goodies are adorable. The ring is my favorite (I love jewelry!), but the socks are a close second. I 10/10 recommend! Not only is the book box ah-mazing, but shipping time was reasonable and customer service is top notch!

LOVE!!!

I received my first box (Wizard of Oz) from ISB and I could not be happier. Every time I thought the box was empty I pulled out something new. and wonderful... three times! The curator did a great job sourcing Wizardy and Rainbowy things. I cant wait for my next box.

I started getting the YA box in January, and when I saw the The Last Bookshop in London was going to be in the April adult box, I couldn't resist trying the adult box as well. My feelings about every book I've been sent have ranged from having enjoyed it to falling madly in love and telling everyone I know they must read it immediately. The boxes are always full of fun things that make me smile, some of which will end up as fabulous birthday/Christmas presents for bookworm friends. I'm keeping the positively delish tea from the April adult box all for myself though. I get multiple book boxes to help cope with pandemic stress/boredom, and this is definitely one of my favorites. If you're looking for a perfect gift for a teen or adult bibliophile in your life, you have just found it.

I have gotten two classic and 1 YA box so far and all of them were filled to the brim with goodies! The items went well with the stories and were mainly made by other small businesses. All boxes shipped fast and in one case when the main book was running late, rather than make everyone wait they put a bonus book into the box and shipped the main one separately when it arrived. I had one issue with an item missing and customer service was fantastic. They put the item in the mail that same day. This is definitely one of the best boxes I have come across and I have been trying them all!

I want my money back

We apologize you've had a bad experience. Though, you bought a future book box that wasn't being delivered until June 26th. We did email back with several solutions and you responded with "ok" and not a direct answer. We were waiting for instructions of what to do with your subscription. We've emailed again but no response. We have refunded you. Thank you.
