I think it’s safe to say that I’ve become addicted to subscription boxes. 😮 What started out as a fun experiment has morphed into a burning desire to get a box of fun surprises regularly in my mailbox.

I have found some wonderful 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 month with a new box subscription: Peace & Pages. The box that I subscribed to is the bi-monthly deluxe box which includes a book and four full size items.

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. It was a little heavy and there was a caution label about glass being inside.

Right on top was a list of the items that were in the box along with the book.

Everything was packaged well, as you can see.

The first item in the box was a black raspberry hand-poured 100% soy candle from Modern Forestry. I could smell it when I opened the box. Yummy. ($10 retail)

The second item in the box was an Ice Dream Sundae bath bomb & bubble bar from Anasa Naturals. It’s almost too pretty to use. I will probably put it on my shelf to admire. ($8 retail)

The third item in the box was a citrus lemonade mix in a glass pineapple jar from Too Good Gourmet. What a cute item and I am looking forward to trying the lemonade. ($6.49 retail)

The fourth item in the box was a set of vintage library card coasters from Got Crafts. I think this was my favorite item. They spoke to my book loving soul. ($12.50 retail)

And the fifth item in the box was the book… The Curse of Misty Wayfair by Jaime Jo Wright. What a great choice! I will say that I’ve already read and reviewed this book, but I was planning on doing a book giveaway for it later this year and I was loathe to give away my copy. Now I don’t have to. 🙂 ($14.99 retail)

Here is the whole box.

What I liked:

  • I could pick the genre I wanted to receive.
  • Christian fiction was one of the genre choices which made me happy because I wanted clean reads.
  • I could chose a monthly or bi-monthly (every other month) subscription.
  • I loved that there was a bookish item along with the book.
  • All of the items were so fun and I liked that there was information in the box about the companies the items came from.
  • The items were hand-made and came from U.S. businesses.
  • The trade paperback book I received was exactly what I would have picked out for myself.
  • Everything was packaged well and there was even a sticker cautioning to handle with care because of the glass item inside.

What I didn’t like:

  • Nothing. I loved this box.

Overall Opinion

This box is the reason that I’m getting addicted to subscription boxes. What a wonderful surprise it was to open the box and fill my book lovers heart with all kinds of happiness. I am subscribed to the bi-monthly box, but if I keep getting ones like this, I will have to switch to getting this box monthly.

This subscription service is $37.00 plus $6.99 shipping per box. The retail amount for everything in this box was $51.98 so the box was well worth it in my opinion.
