Questions

1

Q: Is it possible to change the address once the subscription is made? I am planning to move before the second box would ship and want to know if I should just wait or if it easily changed.Asked by Cadence E., March 2021

Q: Do you work with independent authors to consider their books for possible inclusion in a future crate?Asked by Don G., December 2020

Magical Reads Crate answered...December 2020

We work with 6 different publishers but do not work directly with authors.
We go through the publisher and they reach out to the agent who speaks with
the author.
Thank you,
Team Magical Reads Crate

Q: If there is a genre that I don’t read, can I request for it not to be included in my boxes?Asked by Jennifer R., April 2021

Magical Reads Crate answered...April 2021

Hello, we ship all different genres throughout the year which are all a
surprise to our subscribers. All subscribers receive the same book each
month. There is not a way to pick a genre or book.
Thank you,
Team Magical Reads Crate

Q: Is this appropriate for a 14 year old girl? It says YA for the books, but then other gifts are for adults? Asked by Jennifer H., December 2020

Magical Reads Crate answered...December 2020

Our book age is 14+ they are all young adult books included. The gifts are
more for young adults. I would not say they are inappropriate for a 14
year old. We included one drink vessel (small tall glass) in the past but
have no plans to include another one any time soon. Thank you and stay

Ordered this as a gift for my 17 year old daughter. An avid reader and lover of alone time. One of the best gifts I have ever given her! She has loved every box to date (3 so far), particularly the one with Rosie the riveter socks! She gets excited with each arrival, reads every book and loves the different self care items, etc she has received. 1000% worth the money! Thank you!

I tried this box out for a few months and overall enjoyed it enough to let my subscription renew each time. However, the shipping delays this year have been very disappointing and seem like poor planning on the part of the curation team. I don't pretend to know what goes into putting together a subscription box, but as a customer, I expect to receive things when promised. The timing of renewals is already frustrating since you renew before you even receive the box and can't decide whether or not to continue the subscription based on reviewing the box's contents; these delays just make that even more frustrating.The books are always great but the extras are hit and miss and with the shipping problems, it's just not a good fit for me anymore.

Hello and thank you for your review. Yes we have had a few announced shipping delays due to items taking longer than expected to deliver to us. The pandemic has been a mess in the sea and air shipping arena. We order all items months in advance but every step along the way to us is going through delays which simply cannot be helped until covid-19 restrictions are lifted and postal services are no longer short staffed. We appreciate your patience and please note that whenever we have a delay we send out an email as well as provide updates on our shipping information page on our website to keep everyone up to date and informed. Thank you for giving...
