Book Subscription boxes : Do you hate them, love them, love them but hate you can’t afford ’em all? Let me know your thoughts!
I, however, fall in the third category. I love Book boxes with special edition books and merches but looking at shipping costs gives me a headache. If I really really love a book, then I just ignore the sorry state of my bank account and order the box right away.
Today, I am going to show and tell you why you should subscribe to the Book Box Club! I’ve been recently selected to be a part of the Book Box Club‘s Blogger’s Army along with fifteen other amazing bloggers.
Book Box Club is a book subscription box, founded by Libby and Kate, who met selling books in a cosy independent bookshop back in 2010. They became inseparable bookish buddies who spent their evenings talking books, baking bad cookies, swimming blindly side-by-side (no contact lenses in the pool!) and singing pop ballads together.
Book Box Club actually came about after a late night biscuit-fuelled conversation, that went something like this:
Kate: I feel as though I’d like to do something huge, something life changing.
Libby: I know what you mean. We need to shake things up.
Kate: I feel as though I’d like to sail around the world, you know? Really achieve something big.
Libby: Let’s do it!
Book Box Club sends their bookish parcels to everywhere around the world and their parcels are so aesthetically pleasing that you’ll want to take a dozen photos before unpacking them. Book Box Club is not a book subscription service but is also a secret society for all book lovers. They offer two different subscriptions(and yes, they come with an invitation to the secret society so ssshhh…):
Book Box Club Subscription – each month you’ll receive a gift-wrapped, brand new, YA read, an invitation to their exclusive online book club and a curated selection of unique themed goodies.
Purely Books Subscription – each month you’ll receive a featured read and an invitation to their online book group.
All postage to the UK is free, but they send their parcels all around the world (postage costs apply). All subscriptions automatically renew, but you can cancel or change your subscription at any time.
Posting date for Purely Books subscriptions is the same as for Book Box Club subscribers, so your parcel gets shipped around the 15th of the month.
Since I’m a rep for the Purely Books Subscription, I’ll show you the packaging and the book I received in my April parcel.
What is a Purely Books Subscription?
The Purely Books subscription is perfect for those of us who don’t like collecting bookish merches. The book you’ll receive will be the same book that is featured in the Book Box Club Subscription so we can all join in on the fun! Along with the book, you’ll receive an exclusive invitation to join the online book club to speak to others about the book.
If you like the sound of any of these two options then you can sign up HERE. You can also use the code BLOGARMY5 to get 5% off your first subscription to both the Purely Books and the monthly Book Box Subscription (5% off a three month Purely Books Subscription or month-to-month Book Box Club Subscription).

In the glittering court of the Land of Dragons, love and betrayal are two sides of the same smile, and soon the fate of a nation rests on Zhi’s shoulders. But to win, they must decide where their heart truly belongs…
This is the book I received and I love the cover so much. There was also a note welcoming me to the Book Box Club Blogger’s Army! Below is a picture of the invitation card to the “secret” society where readers can interact with the author.
Overall, I’m extremely happy with my experience with the Book Box Club and look forward to writing more posts about my expereinces. My next post will be about the exclusive club( yes, the secret society) where I get to ask the author questions and speak to others who’ve also received the invite to the Club!
