Q: Where can we find details on the themes for each month? It’s to my understanding that some months can be skipped based on preferences. Asked by Kathleen B., July 2022

Misplaced Muse Creative answered...July 2022

Hello! Currently the subscription operates on a surprise basis due to
possible supply chain issues causing backorders, etc. However, please
follow our social media accounts for future sneak peeks and hints toward
the great books, coffee, and candles you have to look forward to!

Q: Hi, Would this be a good gift for my 17 year son to grow a library of classic reads or are these geared more toward women?Asked by Rebecca F., November 2019

Misplaced Muse Creative answered...November 2019

Hi! Thanks for your interest! We feature great reads from a mixture of
genres with the option to skip a month if the genre or theme falls outside
of a subscriber's interest. While we can't guarantee that he would
appreciate every book we feature, we think he'd certainly enjoy many of
them. We'd love to introduce him to some fantastic reads!

First of all I loved the extra products they came with the box! Coffee is tasty, candles are fantastic, and I have been happy with all of that. Packaging is perfect, and none of the items have been damaged. Underwhelmed with the books though, I was hoping for more classics and story type books, but received an older published book by an author that I had never heard of and more of a reference type book. So overall it wasn’t for me, but others may like it.

I have loved receiving my Weekend Warrior pkg every month. The 2 books in each bag have allowed me to meet new authors I wouldn't have discovered on my own. That each delivery also came with coffee & tea samples was such a pleasureable plus. I will surely miss this indulgence when they discontinue it in Aug of this year. The company is opting to go strictly "box" at that time and do away with the 2 smaller and less expensive offerings which leaves me out in the cold. The "Warrior" was the perfec fit for me content-wise and price-wise. So sad . . .

I have received a Bookshelf delivery each month and have enjoyed every one, I love this new paperback book subscription. I look forward to my surprise book every month! What is it this month? First hint is an apple coconut soy candle named "INCONCEIVABLE" There is always a little snack, this time Mr Goodbar, and either coffee, tea or cocoa. Cute book mark. Ahhhh the book is "The Princess Bride". I loved that movie. Princess Buttercup and Westley! I am making a cup of cocoa and curling up on the couch to read. Ooooh I missed this little pin! It says never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line!
Princess Bride, Never-ending Story and Fahrenheit 451 are my favorites so far.
Thank you for putting together these amazing boxes.

The folks at Blue Spider Books do a great job! If you love books, you'll love what they curate. Not only are the books great reads, but they find really attractive or interesting editions. Love!!

I do love to read, and was so excited about this used book subscription. I purchased a 3 month subscription. I received my first book and did not read the whole thing for the horrible language within it. I emailed them to see if it was possible to get a book without the language or inappropriate scenes and was told they could not do that. I gave them a second chance and was disappointed in the second book as well. I asked them to cancel my subscription since I was not happy with the book selections and they refunded me for the last month. I thought they would refund me the whole amount since I was not happy with either books, but that wasn’t the case. The only thing I did enjoy was the Simplicity Teas samples included. If you prefer cleaner book selections, I wouldn’t recommend this subscription.
