My January Books That Matter box landed on my doorstep last week, so of course I am going to share with you what we received this month!
This box was in collaboration with Jameela Jamil and the I Weigh campaign, designed to reevaluate what women & people in general consider their “weight”. Rather than saying “I weigh X lbs,” the campaign asks you to reconsider what you actually weigh – your friends, family, fears, hopes, dreams, what you love and hate. I have a very positive opinion of this campaign so I’m excited for this!
It’s an even month, which means it’s time to unbox my favourite book box!
Books By Matter has quickly become my favourite box, because they use eco-conscious products, choose well-themed books and items, and even plant a tree every time you purchase a book from them. I think they are soon going to be a very competitive book box on the market.
This month’s theme was “Into the Wilderness”, and the items were so well catered to the book and the theme of the box! But what were the items?! Let’s have a look inside…
Books That Matter delivered another stellar box this month, and even though, for the first time, I already had the book, I was still very excited to open it.
“Herland” was themed around feminist utopia and dystopia. In recent months, pop culture has seen the rise of dystopias once again, with the likes of books released in the pandemic as well as hits such as The Handmaid’s Tale. I think it’s a really interesting theme to have a book box themed around, especially a feminist one like BTM.
