I loved my box. And can’t wait until this month’s gets here.

I have been subscribed to The Bookish Box for 2 months, but I recently canceled it after paying for my 3rd and final box. The price was just too much for what was actually provided. I paid $43 (not including shipping/tax) for the box with a shirt, goodies, and a YA book. Unfortunately the only "good" items included were the book and the shirt...which I do highly recommend buying one-off's of their shirts if you can! I am aware that the shirt is most likely the reason for the high price, but other boxes I've received include totes, shirts, pillowcases, and other things that are similarly pricey and yet the boxes are $5 - $15 cheaper.
The stuff provided in the box (besides the book and shirt) are just throw away/paper/random items that you'd probably throw out in a spring cleaning or just in general. Examples provided...
February 2018 Box: 2 Harry Potter prints (gorgeous!), Percy Jackson bath bomb, luggage tag (cheap), ACOTAR pin, random feather, and a wand thing you could clip on your key or backpack. Everything was just so cheap and useless...
March 2018 Box: Jem Carstairs print, Pride and Prejudice lotion, Grisha universe tea, Fangirl hanging thing, coaster (cheap and your drink will soak through and ruin). Better than February for sure, but still not worth the price.
If you want to try this box I think you should! It is not a bad box, but in comparison to some other boxes the quality and price don't compare.
*All of this is my personal opinion, I do not wish to discourage anyone from trying this box if they really want to.**

Originally I thought I was only getting a tote. But my impatience got the best of me. I received my kit this evening. I got a cute shirt, some tea, a few cool drawers and a lot more ! Overall super impressed , and excited to give it as a gift to my friend 😊
