Hi! Thank you for reaching out.
In the Unisex box the books could be any genre including fiction and non fiction. Action/Adventure, SciFi, Suspense, Mysteries, Crime, Biographies, Historical Fiction. Main characters will be a mix of men and women.
In the Women's box the books will lean towards more of women's themes or characters such as cozy mysteries, romance novels, and historical fiction with mainly female characters.


Q: How do you know what the holiday will be? Or is it a surprise?Asked by Amancay K., November 2021

Unboxing the Bizarre answered...November 2021

Hello! Thank you for reaching out! The holidays are random within the month. These are all oddball ones and not typical one like Christmas, Easter, St Patricks. They could be root canal day, space day, llama day, wreaths across America day, etc. The book boxes are based on one holiday in the given month, all other boxes include 4 different holidays for that month. The holidays are a surprise, we do not reveal them before shipping.

The box is good but their customer service is top notch. I had some confusion when I initially ordered. Not only that they did reply very quickly but also solved the issue and even gave me a discount that I had not applied myself while ordering. The reason for that was that Cratejoy platform was not letting me apply the discount.
Then I got charged with considerable customs amount on one of the boxes by Customs Canada. They took care of all of that with no hassle to me and the matter was dealt with swiftly.
The best customer service that I have encountered on Cratejoy.

I am obsessed with book boxes and this is my favorite. I have been a subscriber to multiple boxes for almost 2 years and have about 40 of their Bibliotheca boxes so far. I get anywhere from 1-3 boxes per month. Adult, YA unisex, and YA girl. Why? because of These boxes are so much fun and the books are always highly rated on Goodreads. Customer service is also fantastic. This is one subscription I won't give up!

April's Box was wonderful. We are celebrating International Jazz Day and we received a book about Duke Ellington, Coasters that are made of Vinyl, and a Lamp shaped as a Saxophone. This is a fun box of holidays I have never heard of and books I have nor read.

Bibliotheca is fantastic!

I guess I have a different view of bizarre. I thought these would be wierd holidays from the past or very different holidays they celebrate in other countries we wouldn't be used to in North America. It seems they have official days for everything now but these are not holidays. I do not find chess bizarre or that the US has an official day for it wierd.
Having said this the actual content of the box was good quality, nice magnetic chess set, interesting water bottle representing the King or Queen (my daughter loved this) and a book that looks very interesting.
Not exactly bizzare or wierd but good products.

Hello we appreciate the feedback. The bizarre holiday theme is based around holidays that are not in the typical mainstream media. So holidays that we would not think of as holidays - but you are correct everyday there is now a holiday for everything. I am glad you found the products themselves of good quality as we take a lot of time fielding good vendors and looking for quality products. We certainly hope you continue with the box but understand if you were looking for something other than what our themed ideas represent. We thank you for supporting small business and trying us out! Happy Everyday - because EVERY DAY is a Holiday!
