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.

Not the best for the price.

Although the books are new and come with an authors note the other items in the box are not worth the price. The price for what you get (3 boxes came with a piece of candy, and mini mini candle and some odd ball item) it’s just not worth it. I’ve seen others do a much better job.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm so sorry you feel this way. I also understand that you may feel like it's not worth the price compared to bigger more established boxes, but I am trying my best as a smaller business. Thank you for your support.

I ordered a 3-month subscription gift for my niece in December for Christmas. The first box did not ship until February and then the 2nd and 3rd boxes were both delivered in July...what? I reached out to them multiple times in January to find out where the 1st shipment was and did not hear back from them until my 2nd or 3rd email. I can't even rate the quality of the box as it was a gift but I am shocked that both the 2nd and 3rd boxes were delivered on the same day 8 months after I ordered it.

It's unfortunate that you feel this way. However, I have sent emails explaining that my health was not the best during this time. I unexpectedly had two seizures which is what caused these unprecedented delays. I reached out to all of my subscribers to come up with a plan to send past boxes or upcoming boxes when I opened up again. Unfortunately, you may have missed that email, which happens. Boxes were also shipped very late because of mandated shutdowns and closures, due to COVID. That is not something I can control, but I made sure to deliver all boxes that customers paid for once things opened up again. Again, an email was sent explaining this. I apologize for the inconvenience and worry this may...

Loved the box! The owner was very responsive to all queries and properly explained on the issues of the delay. The books are exactly to my taste and I also like all the swags that came with the box.

If you are able to wait patiently for the shipping delays, then can try this box. Please check first with the owner before ordering.

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.

With all the delays not only we have experienced, but other small boxes like mine... we have been working hard as a team to figure out how to fix these issues. We started a different shipping schedule to see if it helps us fix the delays before they happen. However, sometimes that isn't always possible. I am hoping that one day you would give us another shot. If not that is fine and understandable too. Thank you for your feedback and support of not only a small business, but a booknerd's dream. Stay awesome!

Don't do it!

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.

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.

We always would deliver the boxes on time, however for some reason after September of 2018 most of us book boxes have been hit with massive delays and new changes within the publishers and small businesses we rely on. This is largely in part because of publishing mishaps or other things that are out of our control. We depend a lot on others (authors, publishing companies, small businesses etc) to create these boxes, which is why delays happen. However, we do work very hard on trying to avoid these issues and trying to get the boxes out to you as quickly as possible.

As a subscription box lover myself, I totally understand the excitement you feel when you purchase a box, which is why I take...
