I have found some wonderful subscription boxes. My YouTube channel is full of video unboxing’s if you are interested. I also share my unboxing’s on my sister website for those boxes that are not books.

By far, my favorite boxes are the ones with the books in them. And those unboxing’s I share on this website.

This unboxing is the Faith and Fiction Book Box. This is not a subscription service. Boxes are curated and then announced for sale. It is a newer service advertising as quarterly, but will perhaps change to monthly if the demand is high. The boxes include one new Christian fiction book and 4-6 items related to the book and theme of the box.

What did I get in this box? I am going to share the contents with you here. My review is not for the book or the items I received, but instead will be for the unboxing experience.


The box was arrived well labeled so I knew what was inside.

There was a product card inside giving information on the contents and theme. This box theme was Island Escape.

The first item in the box was a jar of “Ocean Breeze” Whipped Sugar Soap by @illuasoap.

The second item in the box was a Sailboat Wooden Bookmark by @woodlandexpressionsnc.

The third item in the box was a “Mama’s Muscle Cream” Roll On Lotion by @sghomestead.

The fourth item in the box was a Lobster Booksleeve by @theliterarythimble.

The fifth item in the box was a bunch of extra goodies from the author and publisher (stickers, pins, coaster…).

The last item in the box was the featured book, Beyond the Tides by Liz Johnson.

This is everything I received in the box.

Check out the unboxing video on YouTube!


What I liked:

  • This isn’t a subscription service so you can decide if you want to order the box based on the theme.
  • There was a theme to the box and everything tied in nicely to the book.
  • The shipping was included.
  • The book was a new release Christian fiction book.
  • Fun and unique products.

What I didn’t like:

  • I’d like to be able to subscribe to this box at some point so that I don’t have to stalk their social media for box updates.

Overall Opinion

I think they have done a great job of curating items that relate to the book and theme. The quality of the items was good. I enjoyed the surprise in unboxing everything and I loved the book choice. I hope that this service continues and eventually allows for subscriptions.

This service is $45.00 per box and includes shipping. I recommend following them on social media to get updates on future box offerings.

  1. Thank you for sharing this and explaining what it is and how it works. The fact and fiction book box website is very vague.
    Sincerely Robyn
