Hello Book Dragons! For this month, I have a lesser known book subscription box. It is sent from a book shop in Crickhowell called Book-ish. I found it on Twitter and decided to order a YA box to see what they have to offer.
A little about the box: “Every month, you will receive a hand-picked new book, and we’ll throw in some other little goodies as well. Where possible, we’ll send out signed or indie exclusive copies of the books. You’ll also be invited to join a Facebook group – an exclusive online book group for our subscribers.” You can choose from different genres and different price ranges. They offer different length subscriptions and the boxes are sent out at the beginning of the month. YA box costs £13 including postage. More information you can find at https://www.book-ish.co.uk/subs-boxes/ So, here is what I received.
In this box I received YA book Bad Habits by Flynn Meaney for 12-17 Year olds that sounds pretty good. 🙂
Alex is a rebel with a purple fauxhawk and biker boots. St Mary’s Catholic School is the strict boarding school where she’s currently trapped.
Despite trying everything she can to get expelled, she’s still stuck with the nuns, the prudish attitude and the sexism. So Alex decides to take matters into her own hands. She’s going to stage the school’s first ever production of The Vagina Monologues . . . Trouble is, no one else at St Mary’s can even bear to say the word ‘vagina’ out loud! A riotously funny novel about the importance of friendship and finding your voice.
Also, I have received a packet of multi-reference bookmarks. I think they are great for students to use in their text books. I am going to use them to remember where I finished reading. 🙂 So, overall, it is a simple and straightforward book subscription box, that is not filled with many knickknacks. It supports independent bookshop as well. However, I know few other boxes that offer more for the the same price as this one, so I think I will stick to those boxes. That is all for the month of April, and I am very excited for the next month’s box. 🙂
Thank You for Your time!<3
