Sweet Reads Box August 2022: The Magic of Lemon Drop Pie πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Sweet Reads Box is a monthly Canadian book box that delivers a new novel, a snack and a drink to enjoy alongside and some bookish goodies tied to the story — think mugs, bookmarks and socks or what my fella likes to call “nerd things.” So basically all of my favourite things, ha ha. August’s edition helped subscribers squeeze the last out of summer with a lemon theme inspired by the book, The Magic of Lemon Drop Pie by Rachel Linden. πŸ‹

Sweet Reads Box July 2022: The Sugar Thief πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Coming up on its fifth anniversary this fall, Sweet Reads Box is the OG Canadian book subscription box and one of my favourite things to see at my door. Every month you get a new novel, a treat to eat and drink alongside and a few bookish goodies tied to the story like cute stationery, nifty mugs, great-smelling candles and soaps, exclusive recipes, etc. They call it “me time delivered” and it’s pretty bang-on. I saved a few items from July’s box to try with my mom while she’s visiting this week — I’ll share in my stories — but in the meantime, here’s a first look.

Catching up with Sweet Reads Box: May 2022 (The “Every Summer After” Box) πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Hi, hello! I hope you’ve been well! We’ve reached peak summer here in Ottawa in terms of heat (so hot! πŸ₯΅) and construction but I’m in no hurry to see it go. Okay maybe the heat, but the construction can stay if it means they’re making progress on the LRT. I still have so many great summer books to read, including May’s Sweet Reads pick, which the co. was kind enough to hold onto for me ’til we settled a bit after our move. It’s “Every Summer After” by Carley Fortune, and from everything I’ve seen and heard it’s the book of the summer. Sweet Reads curated a fantastic box around the story and I’ve got it here for you today. A limited quantity are still available to order, so if you like what you see snap it up! (That link will take you to the single box, but you can also buy it with the “Lessons in Chemistry” box and save some $ at the same time.)
