I was a bit skeptical of what book I might get since Im heavily into fantasy but I loved the idea of a book box including self care items! The book design is absolutely stunning, my significant other and I had the best reaction seeing all the detail and feeling like we got our first custom book! Thank you for putting care into this box, I’m not sure if this counted as the welcome box? But I love it either way.

Hi Destiny!
So glad you enjoyed your first box :) We send Welcome Boxes when available; otherwise you receive the 'current' month's box. We reveal titles and themes each moth, so we hope you enjoy the picks we choose! Genres vary each month, but we do have some fantasy coming that we think you'll love :) Thank you so much for the fantastic review!

WOW WOW WOW! I received my Welcome Box really fast - which was fantastic. My next box had an absolutely beautiful book with stenciled edges. I am afraid to touch it it's so beautiful! I wound up getting the book on Kindle instead and it's really good. The items were so lovely as well. I am getting the YA box for my daughter!

Great box

Unfortunately very bland, anticlimactic for the edit.

Hi Brock!
I reached out to you via e-mail as well; but it would be helpful if you could offer specifics. We're very sorry you felt your box was not worth it. We guarantee that everything in the box is exclusive, custom made, and supports small businesses. Each box has a value of over $75 retail and includes exclusive prints on our books (they cannot be bought anywhere else!) with beautiful stenciled edges, foiling, end pages, and more! We hope that you enjoy your next box more.
Thank you,

Gift for Wife-Struck Out Again!

Pray forgive my somewhat flustered demeanor, but I must confess that I recently purchased a three-month subscription as a gift for my dear wife for the festive season. Upon receiving the first box, which arrived promptly and was well-packaged, I must admit that I am not looking forward to the next one. You see, I had ordered the Adult Fiction subscription, but upon opening the box, I fear that Horror or Satanic Interest would have been a more apt description for the contents.
Please do not misunderstand me, the items do appear to be of good quality, but they are simply not to our taste. The loose tea leaves included may make a fine cuppa, but I cannot help but worry that my wife will be expected to "read the leaves" once she has finished with the other items.
I must confess, I am somewhat anxious to see what the next box will bring.

Too much on romantic side first boxes.

So far, I am disappointed as far as personal taste. Seems more for those who enjoy romance and related items, As of shipments received in the first boxes, I may keep 1 item and may make it through 1 book, I hope resale shops appreciate my donations. I signed up for an optimistic 6 months, but will not be renewing if the curation remains the same. I really wanted to enjoy this subscription.

Unplugged Book Box said...Dec 30, 2022

Hi Janell,
I'm sorry to hear you're disappointed in your first boxes! We do our best to vary genres every month and we do reveal book titles in advance, so you are always welcome to skip a box if you're not interested in a particular genre.
So far, your first book was a gothic retelling (not a romance) and the second book was a romantic fantasy.
Our January feature is a thriller/sci-fi, and February is TBA, but we think you'll love it! As far as the items are concerned, you've received a teacup, bubble bath, candles, coffee, a scarf, and other self-care goodies that were either inspired by some popular fandoms or were "generally bookish" (i.e. not attached to a specific fandom).
We would certainly love to hear more...

Amazing - glad I picked this one!

The box smelled amazing before I even opened it. The items inside were all lovely, will all be used, were all interesting and while I may not have picked them out myself, I love the I have them. The book was not one on my TBR list but after reading the synopsis I was glad to have it on my bookshelf, I'm looking forward to devouring it. The box was carefully assembled and clearly done was affection, things were safe and the theme obvious. I'm a happy recipient and will be renewing my subscription! Recommend!
