Q: Can I request 2 or 3 specific genres I want to receive books from Asked by Ashley S., March 2021
Of course! With so many wonderful book genre's to choose from, it's hard to tell which ones someone specifically enjoys the most. I want to make sure I choose the books that are right for you!
Overall I liked this box. It had a lot of cute items, and its obvious that some thought went into putting the box together.
The handmade journal was part of why I had wanted this box as opposed to just buying the reader subscription. So, I was a little disappointed that the notebook I received does not appear to be handmade.
I had expected something similar to previous boxes/pictures, and what came in looks like it came out of a bulk package of small notebooks. I wouldn't take any points off for that if it weren't advertised as being handmade in the description under the "subscription" section of the listing.
So far I have enjoyed the book (I'm a few chapters in), and the bookmark is super cute!
The box came with two stickers that aren't featured in the picture. I put them on a journal that I already had before taking the picture.
I haven't really used the pen too much, the sticker on it says its' a Kacogreen brand pen. It has red ink, which is fine for journaling and story writing, and other personal writing, but not really for everyday use (since most forms and things I would use it for have to be black or blue). But I've got tons of black and blue pens, so a red one isn't a bad thing.
I do appreciate the amount of care that must have gone into the writing prompts, poem and author note-card.
By the time I paid for...
I am obsessed with this box. It was so thoughtfully created and just what I needed to feel reconnected to my love for writing and reading. I requested for my book to be a classic novel so Wuthering Heights was a pleasant surprise! I’m already enjoying the read with a cup of tea and highly recommend this box for someone looking for a unique subscription box
I really like this subscription! It ships relatively fast, the packaging is so cute and feels personal, and i enjoy the books and bookmarks picked for each month.
Such a fun subscription to try out a new book! Got my book yesterday and it looks so interesting! I can’t wait to read it!
Super cute box. Prompts are very creative and the used book was in perfect condition.
Update: the seller contacted me and we realized that some items were missing from my first box. I was impressed that she reached out to me and quickly resolved the issue.
I really wanted to love this box, but it’s just ok. The writing prompts all seemed to be drawn pretty directly from the used book that was included, so it felt like it would be difficult to approach the prompts without bias. It would have been really nice if the first order came with a simple journal, a nice place to keep my responses to the prompts. Everything about the box was just a little underwhelming. A great idea, but the execution could be better.
