The subscriber letter tells you what comes in the box, an explanation of the reading experience included with the book, plus a curator’s letter about the book.

Novel Tea Tins Loose Leaf Tea Blend The Picture of Earl Grey: I am not a tea drinker but my husband loves Earl Grey, so he will slurp this right up while reading his stories! I liked that it had a cute literary theme. I for sure need to buy some of their tea just to get the cute “Moteaf” tins. Don Quixotea? War & Peach? STOP I NEED THEM!

Pride & Peppermint and Fifty Shades of Early Grey are coming soon!

I don’t think I need to tell you that the Lydia Bennet bookmark is an advertisement for Pride & Peppermint.

Uppercase Exclusive Book Paradise Postcard Set from Eric Nyffeler: I love his work! I feel this is a pretty amazing item and I’m going to save one to frame and send the rest. to friends. The postcard is full of significant buildings/features from books. There’s no information on the postcard but it does include NYC, Sydney Opera House, and the Baggins’ house in the Shire! I wished there was some sort of note about this set.

Paula Stokes’ Girl Against the Universe ($10.29 on Amazon)

From the author of The Art of Lainey and Liars, Inc. comes a fresh, contemporary story about one girl’s tragic past and a boy who convinces her that maybe her luck is about to change. Perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen or Jenny Han.

Maguire knows she’s bad luck. No matter how many charms she buys off the internet or good luck rituals she performs each morning, horrible things happen when Maguire is around. Like that time her brother, father, and uncle were all killed in a car crash—and Maguire walked away with barely a scratch. But then on her way out of her therapist’s office, she meets Jordy, an aspiring tennis star, who wants to help Maguire break her unlucky streak. Maguire knows that the best thing she can do for Jordy is to stay away, but staying away may be harder than she thought.

This was even signed by the author herself.

Like all books in this subscription, this book is new – and in this case brand spanking, because it was published on the 17th. They obviously have deals and connections with the publishers, which makes the whole thing pretty impressive.

Add-on [this was not part of the subscription – it was an extra that I paid a few dollars for]: The Book of Magical Thinking Notebook: You can add on past items when you subscribe or until the cut-off period. I pretty much had to subscribe to this month because I wanted this cute notebook for my daughter. The cover is printed but looks like an old book.

This is a fun subscription and I really like that it comes with exclusive reader content. I do wish that it had a little more value in it but I don’t want to undervalue the postcard art, so I think it’s ok!

    This box seemed really good so I went to their website to buy it but they are already onto June. So then I just got the book on Kindle. I was overall disappointed in it. It dragged in spots and wasn’t really realistic and was really sort of clunky. I don’t usually read YA so maybe I’m too critical. Anyhow I’m reluctant to purchase next month without knowing the genre or a spoiler or something.
