Welcome to this unboxing of the Jocelyn Green Read-Along Box (Shadows of the White City).

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 Shadows of the White City by Jocelyn Green Read-Along Box. This is a one-time purchase directly from the author. This is not a subscription service. These boxes were curated and announced for sale by the author to newsletter subscribers first.

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 note from the author explaining how a read-along box works.

The first item in the box was a 4 oz Currently Reading Candle from Novelly Yours.

The second item in the box was a packet of Honey Almond Tea and a packet of Cream Earl Grey Tea from Teacellar.

The third item in the box was a Sunshine and Lemons Hand Sanitizer from Bath and Body Works.

The fourth item in the box was a historic postcard and World’s Columbian Exposition Chicago Ticket Replica.

The fifth item in the box was a pair of bookish socks from SockSmith.

The sixth item in the box was a Chicago Symphony Orchestra Tote Bag.

The seventh item in the box was a set of four quote postcards.

The eighth item in the box was the featured book, Shadows of the White City by Jocelyn Green.

The ninth item in the box was a Palmer House Brownie Recipe and Book Plate signed by the author.

This is everything I received in the box.

What I liked:

  • The book was a Christian fiction read.
  • All of the items were related to the book.
  • The swag items were individually wrapped and labeled with the corresponding book page number.
  • Fun and unique products.

What I didn’t like:

  • Nothing.

Overall Opinion

I really enjoyed unboxing this box. Book boxes are my favorite ones to get and getting a box curated by the author was such a bonus. She did a great job of curating items that relate to the book. I’m looking forward to revisiting each item when I get to that page in the book as I read it. The quality of the items was good. Even though this was a one-time purchase, I hope that this author (and others) will offer this type of box up again. I learned about this box from being a newsletter subscriber to this author so I recommend subscribing to the newsletters of any author that you like. You never know when this type of thing will show up.
