A nice surprise -- I subscribed thinking these would be weathered, vintage books, but the book I received could be brand-new... Which is nice if you're looking for a surprise book in great condition! The book I received was an excellent choice for my reading preferences, but not one I'd heard of, so that was a fun surprise, too!
The tea is very tasty (I received blueberry herbal tea) and came in a super cute clear vial with cork stopper! I was pleased that the subscription process included choosing several specific genres, instead of just "adult" or "young adult" (like some other clubs). If you're someone like me who can't get enough good books and tea, give this club a try!
(P.S. The subscription plus shipping is less than the cover price of the book!)
I am very happy with my box. I was just going to try for a month & cancel to try some others but I’m going to keep this one and see how it goes. Got 2 good books, coffee, tea & a bunch of bookmark quote things. So all good.
Great name brand book but it’s not worth the price with shipping unless it’s at least 2 books. One used horror book I can get at the used book store for $3. Used books there should be at least 2-3 books each month
I enjoy getting my books.
Blue Spider Books, I appreciate that you sent the books in a weather proof envelope. I don't have a porch awning, so when mail is placed by my front door and then it rains... it makes me sad. But I enjoyed the coffee and have yet to try the loose leaf tea. Thank you for slipping in two empty tea bags to put the tea leaves inside. Very thoughtful. For those who are curious, I got the Weekend Warrior and it comes with two used books, coffee, AND tea. I got Stella Cameron's 7B and Rachel Hall's Land of Shadows. Looking forward to the next one!
Books sent weren't ones I would've chosen myself. One was not my thing, the other I couldn't put down!!!!
I just received my first package. Both books look really interesting. I was afraid I would get things I would never read but both selections are great! Can’t wait until next month.
I enjoy this subscription beyond what I anticipated. The books are stretching my literary choices and the extras are special. The fact that that these are 2nd hand or repurposed books adds extra value
It is really cool. I wish they would stick to older books. The coffee and tea is great.
The only reason I didn't give my first box five stars is because I received a romance novel. I indicated in my survey that I didn't want romance novels because they're just cheesy. Other than that, I'm super happy with my first box!
Purchased a three month subscription for my mom for Mother's Day and she loved it. Each box was wrapped with love and the extra bookish items they included were so cute. A really fun gift, so much better than the standard big box store stuff. She looked forward to receiving in the mail and next time I'll buy her a longer subscription! Thanks Blue Spider.
I just received my second box today and I love it as much as the first. I feel my heart leap every time I see a Blue Spider's Attic box on my door step. The books are in good condition for being second hand, the coffee is delicious, and the extra goodies that go with the theme for the month are tons of fun. I would recommend this box to anyone who loves books, coffee (or tea), and fun little gifts!
I have received three Attic boxes so far and look forward to getting the next one all month. The boxes comprised interesting themes that have broadened my literary horizons, coffee both delicious and abundant, and delightful corresponding goodies. I especially liked the little writer's notebook, the Wizard of Oz print and the Ninth Ray candle.
The real star of the show, however, is the curation of books based on a survey of my preferences. I have received literary fiction, fantasy and paranormal romance, sci-fi, and women's fiction, and among them, several new favorites I probably never would have found on my own. I also received a prompt response when I sent a message. Blue Spider offers an excellent service and product that I would recommend to anyone!
just received my second box. I am well pleased with all 6 books i've received over the 2 boxes. with just minor amounts of info from me, the curators have sussed me out completely! Haven't tasted this coffee yet, but last month's was terrific. The oz necklace is too cute for words and already around my neck!
thanks blue spider's attic!
One of the best boxes I've received! First all the theme was my favorite I love love love l. Frank Baum and the world of oz! The book selections were a range of genres not related to the theme but I'm still excited.
love this boxs and stuff in it but i was hoping i could get a candle to but its fine
So I just received my 2nd subscription box. Both this one and the previous included books that were within a series but were not the first of the series. While the coffee samples seem to be substantial, the tea samples are lacking and have not given more than one cup.
My first box was good. I received my second box and was really disappointed. I requested not to receive any sci-fi books and in 2 box’s received 3 books about the devil. Very scifi like books. I did get one that I wanted to read and then I realized it was the 4th book in a series and I’d have to go buy the other books before I could read the one I got. The “bookish” items where also 3 peices of paper. I got email asking how I liked my box and asking for a rate from the company blue spiders attic and gave them the one star and said exactly what I said above. They responded by sending me an email (which I didn’t expect as I’d rated them 3 stars last night and didn’t receive a reply) but in this reply they stated they would refund my money and for me to go find a new box to subscribe to. They canceled my subscription because I gave them a bad review on one out of 2 box’s. I was paid up for a 6 month subscription. That extremely rude and not gory business like. You don’t just cancel a customers subscription without asking them because you didn’t like their review on the product they paid for. The items in my box this month definitely did not value to the 27 or so dollars they say they put into each box.
the books i got was awesome i can not wait to read them love this box thank all for sending it to me
I've loved everything I've gotten so far! It's been a real delight to receive this box and it feels like my birthday with every revealing lol! I'm looking forward to future boxes!
I just received my first gift box and I am truly impressed. The gifts are unique, the coffee looks delicious, and I don't have any of the three books included. Although I'm not sure John Grisham is an author I'd have selected, the other two are absolutely perfect! Very happy with my box and hope to order again soon. :)
Great subscription box of vintage books curated just for you! I received 3 books in my box and they were all in great condition (two were excellent and one had tiny bit of wear on the edge but still really great). I also got the bookish accessories and they were very nice too. I was a little on the fence about the theme, it was from a TV show and I don't watch TV, but if I just thought of it as being a western theme then that worked for me. The quote on the artwork was perfect - loved it and I wouldn't have know it and the other items were from a show if I wasn't told and the coffee sample was great. Very happy with my box and once I read a few of the books on my shelf I will order again. Also the quality of the books was nice enough that you could be comfortable giving as a gift.
This is my favorite box to open! It's also the most for the low price, half of other boxes yet with more books! There is always a intriguing theme with items& tea/coffee to pull us into the worlds of reading books. I got one that was all steampunk & another around sea/mermaids - wonderful! The books are excellent, too! They come individually 3 bagged so each book is another surprise to open! The books are in reusable or recyclable cute paper bags, I reused some as gift wrapping I like the print so much. - plus the books are used but like new, so ecologically this is awesome. The support is fast - I didn't read the first books although they interested me so I emailed and they offered options & switched up my genre for the future mailings - they were so fast & friendly about this change it was appreciated!
