How much do we love a limited edition? What’s inside the second Book Lovers Box from Sweet Reads Box

Sweet Reads Box sent me their Book Lovers Box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Well I finally got around to booking my laser eye surgery for January 1. Can’t wait to have 2020 vision. 😂 Okay I don’t need laser eye surgery but I see it’s been a minute since I promised today’s post. Sweet Reads Box issues special one-off boxes from time to time (I’ve just ordered one of their first Kids Christmas Boxes for my guys) and IMHO their second limited edition Book Lovers Box is one of their best. Like the monthly subscription box, it’s “me time delivered” with a new novel, tea or coffee, a sweet treat and some goodies tied in to the story; in this case the book is about an aspiring novelist and the goodies all celebrate books. Here’s a closer look. 📚

Because my alone time is for everyone’s safety: July’s Sweet Reads Box

I received July’s Sweet Reads Box for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.  We’re only a couple of weeks into summer break and I’ve already lost my shit more times than I can count. I thought I was pacing it out okay, but then last week was hot as hell and my mom was visiting so the kids were pushing it and none of us are getting enough sleep so I ended up reaching my shit-losing quota way sooner than I thought. “I’ve got to do better at keeping it together,” I told myself. But how? Then the universe sent me a sign.

What’s inside October’s Sweet Reads Box

I received October’s Sweet Reads Box for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.  The other night I started the novel in this month’s Sweet Reads Box and I’m super stressed about how it’s going to end. Thrillers don’t typically tie things up in a bow but I really don’t want to be haunted by this one. It’s called Three Days Missing and it’s about two mothers who become unlikely allies when one of their sons (the same age as mine!) vanishes on a school camping trip. 

What’s Inside September’s Sweet Reads Box + A giveaway!

I received September’s Sweet Reads Box for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and from the ❤️.  It’s here! September’s Sweet Reads Box arrived this week and it’s their one-year anniversary so we are going to PAR-TAY. And by that I mean stay home and read books. Which is a good thing since I have very little to offer you in terms of snackages apart from the highly disappointing Skinny Pop popcorn mini cakes I’m munching on that are apparently sharp cheddar flavour but I am getting none of that. Also we’re out of Diet Pepsi. So yes I would make a very bad host. But let’s move along. In honour of this very special occasion, and to thank all of you who’ve followed along since I first started reviewing the boxes last September, I’m giving away a September 2018 box out of my own pocket to one lucky reader. Let’s see what’s inside already! (Alsoooooooo, if this is the first time you’re hearing of Sweet Reads Box it’s …

What’s inside August’s Sweet Reads Box

I received the August Sweet Reads Box for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and from the heart.  Next month marks the one-year anniversary of one of my favourite subscription boxes and I feel like we should do something to celebrate, yes? I think I’ve got just the thing. I’ve ordered one of September’s Sweet Reads Boxes to share in a giveaway with one of you, the readers who support me month after month and make it possible for me to blog about it in the first place. (Thank you thank you!) In the meantime, let’s look at what’s inside the August box.
