Sweet Reads Box May 2021 πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

I received May’s Sweet Reads Box in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

Annnnd we’re back. I hope you had a good weekend. I didn’t get to half the things on my to-do list but that’s okay. Instead I watched a thoroughly entertaining movie (Knives Out); listened to some amazing covers by the Ohio State University Marching Band, The Buckeye Battle Bangers; and read the first half of May’s wonderful Sweet Reads pick, The Music of Bees. If you’re new to Sweet Reads Box, it’s a Canadian book box that delivers me time each month with a new novel, something delicious to eat and drink while you’re reading, and some other bookish items related to the story or the theme of the box (think mugs, bookmarks, stationery and other super fun surprises). Subscriptions and single boxes are available to try (or gift) along with limited edition, stand-alone boxes released throughout the year. Let’s look at May’s offering.

It’s the co’s third Cook’s Box, this one curated around the newest gem from Canadian sisters Julie Albert and Lisa Gnat, The Bite Me Balance Cookbook: Wholesome Daily Eats and Delectable Occasional Treats.

Sweet Reads Box April 2021 πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

I received April’s Sweet Reads Box in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

Hi everybody! I hope you had a great weekend. I put off cleaning to spend some time on our deck in the sun while the weather was nice so I need to get to that but first, the first in a Sweet Reads double header. Today I’ve got April’s reveal and in a couple of days an April limited edition, The Cook’s Box. If you’re new to Sweet Reads (or Sweet Reads Box, I use them interchangeably), it’s a monthly Canadian book box that delivers a new novel, something delicious to drink, a tasty sweet or savoury snack, and a few clever bookish goods (think mugs, bookmarks, candles, etc.) related to the story or the theme of the box. This fall will mark the co.’s fourth year in biz (!) and I feel like they’re just getting better and better.
