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: Fellowship.

The second item in the box was a Timeless Brew Columbian coffee blend from La Crema Coffee Company.

The third item in the box was a Bare Necessities Tea Light Candle.

The fourth item in the box was a Metal Book Quote Notepad and Pen.

There were also some bookmarks, a sticker and a coaster.

The fifth item in the box was the book… The Heroes of Tolkien by David Day.

Here is everything I received in this box.

Check out the unboxing video on YouTube!


What I liked:

  • The book was a quality copy
  • 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:

  • Nothing

Overall Opinion

This is my first box with this subscription service and I was really impressed with it. It reminded me of another favorite book subscription service, Coffee and a Classic. I loved the quality of all the items, particularly the book and the candle. I’m looking forward to enjoying all of the items in this box.

This subscription service is $36.95 plus $8.95/shipping.
