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 is my first purchase from the Fiction Flock Book Box. I did not subscribe, I got this box as a one-time purchase to try it out. This is a bi-monthly subscription service. The boxes include one new fiction book, artisan candles in scents related to the story, two bookish gifts, a mini magazine inspired by the book, and a portion of the proceeds from every box are donated to a good cause.

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, as well as a thank you and share socially card.

The first item in the box was the Expand the Experience Mini Magazine which included information on the author and companies represented, recipes and fun facts inspired by the book, and information on the non-profit receiving the donation. This box’s donation was to Off Their Plate.

The second item in the box was a 4oz “Coffee House” candle from Sugar Belle Candles.

The third item in the box was a 4oz “Pink Sugar” candle from Sugar Belle Candles.

The fourth item in the box was a 4oz “Maple Butter” candle from Sugar Belle Candles.

The fifth item in the box was a chocolate chip scented bookmark.

The sixth item in the box was an owl brown sugar keeper.

The seventh item in the box was a set of bottle cap magnets.

The eighth item in the box was a giant chocolate chip cookie.

The last item in the box was the featured book, Hadley Beckett’s Last Dish by Bethany Turner.

This is everything I received in the box.

What I liked:

  • I could make a one-time purchase of the box without subscribing.
  • The box is available bi-monthly.
  • There was a theme to the box and everything tied in nicely to the book.
  • The book was a Christian fiction book.
  • Fun and unique products.
  • Everything was packaged well.
  • Exterior of box was wrapped in plastic.
  • Variety of fragrances for the candles.
  • Mini magazine with recipes and other fun information.
  • Portion of proceeds are donated to a charity.
  • Two book options to choose from based on genre.

What I didn’t like:

  • I couldn’t subscribe due to an issue with their website.

Overall Opinion

I enjoyed opening this box. 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. The bookish items were fun and I loved that a donation was made to a worthy cause. The book was a Christian fiction romance from an author that I have been wanting to read. Not all of their book selections will be Christian fiction, but I’m hoping that future selections will include some clean reads that I would want to check out. I’m keeping an eye on this service.

I paid $49.99 for the one time box. The subscription service is $39.99 per box plus $5.95 shipping so it is a little cheaper to subscribe.
