I have gotten many of these beautiful boxes in the past, and I have loved every one! Ginnie's box is truly special because it allows readers to choose which genre they want (YA contemporary or YA fantasy)! Also, each box is guaranteed to have a snack and candle (which are my favourite items to get in a box). I know there have been some delays due to the holidays, but the team was active on IG about updates regarding their boxes, which I appreciate. Overall, I highly recommend this amazing box!
I subscribe to this box in September and nothing has been sent out on time since then. I understand that the first box would’ve been delayed due to the hurricane but there was no reason for any of the other boxes to be delayed. There has been minimal communication from the seller and all of that has been initiated on my end. Was very disappointed in the whole thing
I was super excited excited to subscribe to this box for an entire year, but then I received the first three boxes on time and have now been waiting for the last three months' boxes when finally today, the November box arrived MISSING an item! The spoiler card claims to include four items, including one print along with the BOTM and my box only had a candle and mask. Total bummer! I understand that we can't control the publishing industry, but what about quality control and communication to subscribers? I am an avid book box subscriber and I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this box.
First, I’d like to mention my star choice was not based on the product itself or the seller, but the shipment of the crate. I love the products and book choices.
The shipment for the crate is what got me. It took me two months to get one of my crates. The crappy thing about is that you pay a monthly subscription, and there was no product. The owner was accommodating and sympathetic, but regardless, I still didn’t have my crate.
Second, that wasn’t the only time I had a late shipment. My last purchasing month was October. After I didn’t receive my box again when I was supposed to, I ditched the service.
I would like to mention that I am not one to write reviews, but I had to...because I JUST got my October box in the mail. It’s June.
Totally Booked Crate delivered a really well done romance crate. The box was so much fun to open and artfully arranged. The book choices were great and the fun items had a neat theme. I loved the quote card that comes with the box. There were quite a few delays with shipping so hopefully that can be improved.
Ordered a gift for a family member early December, they have yet to receive the first box and I have now been charged 3 times. I've messaged the seller and have not heard from them. If there's a legitimate reason for the delay that's fine, but there has been absolutely zero communication of any kind.
When I read the reviews for this box it sounded so amazing i couldn't wait to sign up. So I Placed my first order on November 12, 2018. Their website said the boxes usually ship out on the 25th-30th of every month...I had to message them to see what was going on by the 5th of December. Which I was told they had a problem with the books they had ordered not being delivered. (They didn't even send out an email or anything to tell everyone this) which I get things happen. But today is the 12th of December and I have yet to receive my box....have literally paid for 2 boxes. (They charge you on the 1st of every month regardless if you have recieved lasts months box or not) and still nobody has communicated why I haven't received the box I've paid for.
I recently started looking into book boxes and I ordered the August YA Fantasy box because of the great titles it referenced. Turns out they were actually sold out and it was only due to a technical error that my order went through. Whoops. This wasn't anyone's fault, of course, but TBC still went above and beyond. Ginnie contacted me to let me know about the mistake and she kept in communication about the situation. Ultimately, I ended up getting a August crate and I. Love. Everything. included. From the book I've been eyeing in B&N to the HP tie to the extra surprise, I was entirely pleased with the crate. This experience even kick-started my new love of candles. 10/10 would recommend for the helpful service and great products.
My first box was wonderful! I just started the book and so far it seems interesting. The other goodies really surprised me. It was all good quality stuff. So far I’m very happy. Customer service has been very responsive and quick when I had a few questions.
