My first month on the digital box and I liked the books offered. Although they were the same genre, there was a variety in what I got. Worth what I paid for it, definitely.
I was probably eyeing this box for at least a year before I caved and spent the money to finally purchase a subscription. What drew me to this box was the fact that it was run by Colleen Hoover and she was an author that I greatly admired because of her published novels.
It would be an understatement to say that I was excited when I received my first box on my front porch. A major understatement. I loved opening up this beautiful purple package and finding that awesome purple stuffing (that manages to get everywhere, fair warning) and finally uncovering the bookish goodies. I had the one-book subscription for the first few months before switching to the two-book subscription.
I have to say that I enjoyed the one-book subscription a little more than the two-book because I loved the items! I got a gorgeous notebook, a great pencil pouch, a bookworm box water bottle, and a couple of other really great big items. The only disappointing thing about this box was the fact that most of the books were paperbacks and not recent releases. But you go in expecting this since every item/book is donation based.
The two-book box was something I switched to almost as soon as it was offered. I believe there was a $5 price increase and instead of a big item, there was a second box and more small items (bookmark, pen, etc). I had this subscription for a shorter time due to funds and...
One Book Box review:
Concern: Normally when I receive my monthly book box subscription(s), the box is secured with a piece of tape. The one book box for December was not.
As far as I can tell, nothing was missing from the box.
Inside the box:
The pen that a lot of us book nerds love so much has a new look and I would have given this review five stars, but my pen is broken. I can't click it, it doesn't retract. That makes me sad. It does still write so it's not a complete loss.
A signed bookmark by author Skye Warren - SCORE!
A prologue/sneak peak of If I'd Known by Rebecca Donovan - love this marketing by the author. What a way to draw the reader in to hopefully purchase the book. I'll be loading my Kindle Gift Card to do just that as soon as I've finished Christmas shopping for everyone else.
The book - Until Harry by L.A. Casey; A new-to-me author and a nice length-sized book at 309 pages. Love the cover and the back intrigued me to want to read this as soon as I have time (why, because I'm easy when it comes to stuff like this).
And the Happy Holidays card - too adorable!
Thank you for everything Bookworm Box crew!
