Hi guys, welcome to Book Munchies’ Musing about Things: A Discussion (Post). Inspired by memes such as A Daily Rhythm‘s Musing Monday & Caffeinated Book Reviewer‘s Caffeinated Confessions (etc.), this is a Book Munchies discussion post, where I’ll be rambling about (mostly) book-related things and hopefully you guys will join in on the fun too (:
So today’s topic is: Bookish (monthly) subscriptions!
In the last few years monthly subscription to literally anything you want is super in. And if you’ve notice there’s been a ton of pretty awesome bookish ones.
Owl Crate is probably one of the most popular, where each month is a different theme (usually a surprise) and it comes with a newly release book and a few bookish things. And there’s Illumicrate based out the UK, that’s pretty similar. There’s The Bookish Box that comes with a bookish t-shirt. Book Riot does a quarterly one too that I would love to get my hands on! And there’s oh so many more!
I want them allll!
I do really like the idea of subscription boxes! It’s a chance to check out a book you might never have thought to read, or you might get a book you want anyway! And really, who doesn’t love adorable bookish things like bookmarks, and jewelry and candles. It’s a nice one stop-shop to sample bookish things and usually it’s worth the price, too. Though there is a risk of getting something you don’t like since it’s usually a surprise.
Unfortunately, living in Canada means expensive shipping, and currently with our terrible terrible dollar, it makes it very difficult to subscribe to the many awesome book ones ): So none of those subscription for me yet.
I am subscribed to one, though! The Fandom of the Month box which is a mish-mash of jewelry from pop culture fandoms, including bookish ones! For the price, this subscription was pretty worth it.
What are your thoughts on monthly subscription?
Do you subscribe to any monthly subscriptions, bookish or not? Do you like it/find it worth your money?
Any subscription that you really want to check out or need in your life? I love to hear about them!
