A Sweet Reads Box for the longest month: March 2020

I received the March Sweet Reads Box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes. Anyone else feel like March was 8,000 days long? 🙋‍♀️ Oy vey! I’m doing my best to put one foot in front of the other but a lot of days I feel like I’m stuck in molasses. Hence my spotty posts. Please bear with me, dear readers. Lots of good stuff coming. (Psst: I’m supporting some of my favourite small businesses with some purchases to share with you including a Sweet Reads Box giveaway so watch for that very soon.) Today I’ve got the March box and after that, the latest limited edition. If it’s new to you or you’ve heard of it but you’re not sure what it’s all about, Sweet Reads Box is a monthly subscription box service that’s “me time delivered” with a new novel, something to eat and drink, and a few other products tied to the story or theme.

January’s Sweet Reads Box royally delivers 👑

I received January’s Sweet Reads Box in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.  High five, my friends. We got through January, Valentine’s Day is around the corner and before we know it we’ll be sailing into March. Normally I go to my aunt’s place in Florida this time of year to roam around Target in my flip flops and read by the pool but that wasn’t possible so I’m here at home, writing to you from the couch with two blankets piled on top of me, a hot cup of tea by my side and a candle flickering on the widow sill (which always feels so cozy). It also meant I was home when January’s Sweet Reads Box arrived so I’ve got that here for you today. It’s a Canadian subscription service that’s “me time delivered” with a new novel, a hot beverage and a few treasures related to the story, and it’s always SO GOOD!

What I was most excited to give my kids for Christmas

What’s the most popular Christmas wine? “I don’t like Brussels sprouts.” 😂 Speaking of whining, was anyone else worried they might hear some complaints Christmas morning when the kids didn’t see iPhones and PlayStations and iThis, that and the other under the tree? I was. But I was excited too. Because I was pretty sure I had the best gift that wasn’t an iPhone or a PlayStation that any kid my kids’ ages (10 and 12) could want, and I couldn’t wait for them to open it! I’d ordered a Kids Christmas Box from Sweet Reads Box for them back in November and thought they’d be thrilled to unwrap a subscription box of their very own, one that promised a Christmas book, sweet treats and a few other surprises curated just for them. This was the first year Sweet Reads Box sold kids’ boxes (one for ages 8 to 12 and another for kids 4 to 7) and given how much I love my own, I thought it was brilliant. As promised, here’s a look …

October’s Sweet Reads Box is a thriller! (Literally)

I received October’s Sweet Reads Box for review purposes. All opinions are my own.  I’ve been down in the dumps for a bit but I feel like I’m finally starting to shake it off, so herewith a reveal I’ve been wanting to share: the latest (and quite possibly the best yet) Sweet Reads Box. The monthly subscription box promises “me time delivered” with a new novel, a sweet treat, coffee or tea and a few other treats related to the story. October’s box marked the Canadian co’s second anniversary, so an extra surprise was included as well. They have the anniversary and we get the presents! I like where this is going. 

What’s Inside July’s Sweet Reads Box

I received July’s Sweet Reads Box free of charge to review. All opinions are my own and from the heart.  What kind of books do you like for summer? A light romance? A mystery that keeps you guessing? An epic historical drama spanning four generations? Or do you like to read the same kinds of stories year-round? July’s Sweet Reads Box features a bestselling family saga told in more than 500 pages and some treats tied to the story to enjoy while you’re reading.
