Sorry you felt the need to leave a bad review, even after Cratejoy and I have been helping you with the situation. You paid for 3 boxes, you received two out of the three boxes you paid for. It was explained that there were delays with the last box and we are currently waiting for the last item. It actually was resolved by myself and a Cratejoy representative. As explained your last crate will be shipped as soon as the last item is received. Thank you for your patience and understanding with this matter.

My favorite!

UPDATED March 2021: Third box was a hit!! (I was on a three month prepay). It looks like the website was updated for a more accurate description of the varient in boxes from month to month and the shipping date was listed later in the month.

You have a great foundation for the box, I love that you're doing author letters and have the intention of including book swag and candles. If you can execute this consistently, this has the potential to be an amazing box.
I signed up for a 3 month subscription, the first box I received on time and was well done, but the candle burned super quick, low quality candle & treats. The second box was a January box and did not arrive until February 16th and did not include any candles or book swag, unless a sticker counts and two starbursts. The 3rd box has not arrived, it is February 18th so we shall see. *UPDATE - Delayed again*
Reading through reviews I see that a lot of boxes were delayed dating back to 2018 for why different boxes were delayed in shipping. Medical issues, publisher issues, USPS, COVID, lots of reasons for delays. As a small business owner I definitely know that things come up and we need to shift our schedules! I would notice the pattern and change your approach to your box if you can; I would curate your boxes 1 -2 months ahead of time...

Thank you for your feedback and review. Being in a group with other subscription box owners, I know that we are all experiencing delays, due to the current state of the world. Though the delays in the past may seem like excuses to you, they are the honest truth of what happened during that time. I am very transparent with what is going on when it comes to delays and I make sure to get every single box out, regardless. Boxes are curated in advance, however there also guidelines that must be followed from the businesses and publisher I work with. For example, new released books do not arrive until it is close to the release date. I also cannot ship them until the book...

I am so disappointed. I gave this subscription the benefit of the doubt and placed an order in March.
I haven't received anything, I did contact seller and have not received a response. My order still shows it is being prepared.
This can't be a shipping delay if my order is still being prepared.
If you don't have time or the resources to get the box out or to respond to a customer, then don't commit to selling a product.

I am updating this as of 5/17/2021. I finally received my package today. I still never received any communication from the seller HOWEVER since I did get the product, and it does have a book from my most recent favorite author I am going to update my rating to a higher level.
I would request a better line of communication with customers in the future.
And my order still shows it is being prepared??

Hello Haleigh. I'm so sorry you feel this way and left such a low review. To clarify things... you purchased a February crate in the end of January, which doesn't ship until after the 23rd of the month. However as stated upon signing up and on the site, there are shipping delays due to COVID, which caused a change in our shipping schedule. You can find this information on the USPS site as well. You also need to take into account that you reside in Canada, which makes shipping time longer.
You emailed me on March 3rd, in which a response was sent back to you. I asked if you received the email with your tracking number and got no response back. I also checked the...

I love this box! I had to change my address the same time some of the boxes were shipping and Ginnie helped me to make sure that my address was updated before my box shipped. The box had great goodies in it and the books were wonderful. I definitely recommend this box!

Totally Booked Crate said...Apr 09, 2021

I'm so glad you loved your box. It makes me so happy to know that you are enjoying your goodies and the book choices. I appreciate you taking the time to leave a positive review. Thank you so much for supporting a Latina owned small business.

We are so sorry that we wasn't able to provide you with the amazing service we normally provide. Unfortunately, there was a horrible delay with our July crates. Our shipping schedule is also different from other boxes. The way our shipping works is as follows: we take new subscriptions for the whole month and do not ship until after the 15th of the following month. We were set to ship our July crates on August 15th, however there was a massive delay in our items for both the MGP & TBC box. We understand that this can be worrisome and apologize for the delays. However, please rest assured that you will receive EVERY crate you paid for. Please follow us on Instagram and/or Facebook for...

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

We totally understand how you feel and apologize from the bottom of our heart. After September 2018, many boxes have been hit with massive delays. We are trying out a new shipping schedule to try to fix these delays before having to delay shipping. I am hoping that our new schedule works going forward. We also communicate everything on our social media platforms (Instagram & Facebook). We appreciate your feedback and are working hard to fix these issues.
