I’ve seen a fair few of these Book-Subscription boxes on my various social media travels and I fully confess I have been tempted – who doesn’t like getting random books in the post? – But I’ve always been a bit put off for the price. Because, as nice as it is to discover new authors, what happens if you’re given a book you’ve already read? It’d be a waste!
So, when I saw Booxebby offering this sort of thing on Instagram, I decided to give them a try. As it’s not a subscription based-product yet and could be ordered as a one-off to give it a go while supporting independent, small businesses. Couldn’t say no to all that wholesome well-being stuff!
One Good Lie, the book that was sent in this box, sounds like the sort of read I’d enjoy. I do like a good dose of drama, thriller and I’m looking forward to reading it – always a bonus when you get a book, and, I’ll be reviewing it individually when I get round to reading it.
It’s somewhat hard to make out in the photograph, but I absolutely adore the little pin-badge that came in the box. “The Book was Better” on some pages of an open book – it’s just so cute.
The sweets have already been eaten!
I’d certainly order something like this again as it feels that need for a bit of a surprise in life while staying in the relative comfort of ‘books.’
