Welcome to this months unboxing of the book subscription service: Book Nerd Essentials from Misplaced Muse Creative. I ordered it through Cratejoy (affiliate link). The box that I subscribe to is the monthly classic box which includes a book, full pot coffee sample, full sized candle, and a surprise bonus item. They also have this subscription for YA books.
What did I get in my box this month? I am going to share the contents with you here. My review is not for the book or the items I received because I haven’t read/used them yet, but instead will be for the content and subscription experience.
The box arrived in good shape and well labeled.
On the top of everything was a postcard listing the books and candles available in each subscription.
The first item in the box was the full size candle: Goldfinch.
The second item in the box was a Sweetheart Blend Coffee from Barnie’s Coffee and Tea Company.
The third item in the box was a Metal ‘I Can’t Adult Today’ keychain.
The fourth item in the box was a Fit and Fiddle tea light candle.
There were also a bookmark and a coaster.
The fifth item in the box was the book… The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.
Here is everything I received in this box.
What I liked:
- Everything was packaged well
- The candles smelled great
- The coffee packet makes at one full pot (12 oz)
- Fun and useful bonus items
- Book was in canvas bag
What I didn’t like:
- Unknown book selection
- Paperback edition
This is my second box with this subscription service. I love the curation of the box. I’m a little concerned about the book since it is an unknown to me. I am pretty particular about clean reads so I hope this is one. I also wish the selection was a hard cover rather than a paperback. While this one wasn’t as impressive for me as last month, I’m still looking forward to enjoying all of the items in this box.
This subscription service is $36.95 plus $8.95/shipping.
