Sweet Reads Box October 2020

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

I saw a post on Instagram earlier today that said “If you see me jammin’ out to Christmas music, just remember, it costs $0 to mind ya own business.” πŸ˜‚ I love Christmas, but I’m in no rush to hurry fall out the door. I love the cool mornings and fuzzy sweaters, our backyard blanketed in golden maple leaves and candles in the window. And pumpkin spice everything, but that goes without saying. 😁 I love all the fall flavours, the fall feels, and the fall subscription boxes. 😍 My favourite one arrived this week and it’s filled with thoughtful items to make this season’s “me time” all the sweeter. It’s October’s Sweet Reads Box, a Canadian monthly book box complete with a new novel, a bevvie, a snack and some bookish items tied to the story. Let’s take a look.

Sweet Reads Box August 2020

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

I’m not outdoorsy in the least but the past few weeks I’ve been reading on our back deck and the warm breeze and the change of scenery have brought my “me time” to a new level. For years we’ve only had three camping chairs for the four of us (ridiculous, I know) but we finally invested in some outdoor pieces my bestie spotted on Facebook Marketplace and it’s been a game-changer. A me-changer. And now for the first time in maybe ever I’m lamenting the end of summer and wondering what I’ll do without my new refuge. 😭😭 Speaking of “me-time” I’ve got August’s box of “me time delivered” for you here, voted Canada’s Best Book Box two years running, dooo-dooo-dooo-dooo, Sweet Reads Box! The monthly subscription box includes a new novel, something to eat, something to drink and a few bookish goodies oh-so-cleverly tied to the story. Herewith the reveal!

Sweet Reads Box June 2020

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

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book!” — Jane Austen

Hello hello! How’s your summer reading going? I’ve been up late the past few nights with this book and ah, so fun! It’s been a while since I got lost in a novel (too tired/distracted/restless, all the things) and I’ve really missed it. Jane Austen was right — reading is the shiz! One of my favourite ways to enjoy some “me time”. Which brings us to June’s Sweet Reads Box aka “me time” delivered. The monthly subscription service includes a new novel + something to eat and drink + some bookish goodies tied to the story and June’s is perfect for Jane Austen fans and the Jane-curious. Are we excited to see inside? Continue reading “Sweet Reads Box June 2020”
