If you’ve been following for a while you’ll know Sweet Reads Box is one of my favourite subscriptions. Each month you get a newly released novel, something delicious to eat and drink alongside, and a variety of bookish items cleverly tied to the story — think a candle that smells like the protagonist’s coffee shop, a journal like the one another character won’t leave home without, and cozy socks to keep you warm in the book’s winter setting. The contents are always a surprise so you get the thrill of discovering something new and then the delight of experiencing the world of the book. Dreamy, right?

But first a look the latest Sweet Reads Box. The Canadian monthly subscription service delivers a new novel, something to eat and drink and a few bookish items tied to the story or the theme of the box. Their slogan is “me time. delivered.” and it’s bang-on.
