I received May’s Glossybox in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

If you’re thinking you just read one of these posts the other day, you’re not wrong.

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.

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.
