Unboxing | Books That Matter: The Sally Rooney Box | September 2021

This month, Books That Matter teamed up with Faber to bring the exclusive Sally Rooney book club box to celebrate the release of Beautiful World, Where Are You. This box had some goodies from Faber and some nice snacks which I’ll talk about in this article!

This month, we received…:

Unboxing | Books By Nature: “Into the Wilderness” | August 2021

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…

Unboxing | Books That Matter: “Hot Book Summer” | August 2021

Another Books That Matter book box arrived on my doorstep a few days ago, and I’m very excited to share what was inside with you!

The theme for this month was “Hot Book Summer“, and we had four great items to help celebrate the summer months. I enjoyed 3/4 of the items -and I’ll talk about why in a minute…

Unboxing | Books That Matter: “Herland” | July 2021

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.

Unboxing | Books That Matter: Pride | June 2021

June is Pride month, and as usual Books That Matter have released their June Pride box! This box was easily my favourite so far of all of the BTM boxes I have ever received, so read on to find out why…

I think it’s easiest if we get onto what was inside this box before I start telling you why I loved it so much! So, what was included?

Unboxing | Books That Matter: Choose Love | May 2021

I am still loving this gorgeous, feminist book box. I have been buying this book box for a few months now, and I am continuously enjoying them.

Books That Matter sometimes teams up with other charities and companies, and this month they have partnered with Choose Love, a charity that supports refugees from around the world. In their store, you can buy merchandise as well as purchasing things like nappies, portable phone chargers, emergency blankets, and tents which go straight to the people who need them the most. In the future, I am definitely planning on supporting this charity further.

Unboxing | Books By Nature April 2021 | Hidden in the Shadows

If you read my blog post from February, you will know I was blown away by this new book box, and I was so excited to get the next box! This box is bi-monthly, meaning every other month in this context, so we’re about to open the next release.

This box was made in collaboration with the author, and you can follow Books By Nature on their Instagram here! I love boxes that are made in collaboration, because they feel so personally. The author also included some extra bits in the box, which made me feel pretty spoilt!

A New Book Box! | Books By Nature February 2021 | Alternate Realities

Today I am super excited to be sharing with you an unboxing of a new UK book box called Books by Nature! I found this book box on Instagram and bought their first box which arrived in February.

This book box is bi-monthly, so releases every other month. At present, you have to buy each box individually, although I think I’ll want to get every release of this box so I hope a subscription will be added in the future!

UNBOXING | Books That Matter February 2021 | GIRL, GODDESS, OTHER

Today I am going to be sharing my unboxing of Books That Matter’s February 2021 box! The theme of this month was GIRL, GODDESS, OTHER.

Overall, I really enjoyed this box! I thought it was very aesthetically pleasing in lovely lilac colours, and the contents all worked really well together. Sometimes I think you can get book boxes that look like 7 different people each added an item, but not here.

Rise Up | Wildest Dreams Book Box & A PHOENIX MUST BURN Mini-Book Review! | April 2020

(This post was written a while ago and never posted! So the “cheering myself up” bit is talking about lockdown and not other current world events.)

To cheer myself up, I decided to subscribe to a new book subscription box! After casting around for a box that was both affordable and that I thought I would enjoy, I found the Wildest Dreams Book Box and treated myself to a one-off subscription. However, after receiving April’s box I think it’s going to become a monthly thing!

*Obviously this contains spoilers for the April Box RISE UP! Don’t read if you don’t want spoilers!*
