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: March Sisters.

The second item in the box was a ‘Coffee is a Hug in a Mug’ Pin.

The third item in the box was a Midnight Glare Dark Bold Roast Coffee from Dan River Coffee Co.

The fourth item in the box was a ‘Nilla tea light candle.

There were also bookmarks and a coaster.

The fifth item in the box was the book… Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.

Here is everything I received in this box.

Check out the unboxing video on YouTube!


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
  • Nice Collectible Edition Book

What I didn’t like:

  • Nothing

Overall Opinion

This was my third box with this subscription service. I love the curation of the box. The book was a flexible leather collectible edition which will look great on my bookshelf. This is fast becoming one of my favorite book boxes to receive. I’m looking forward to enjoying all of the items in this box.

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