Bookworm Box Reveal #3

Guess what else I'm behind in? Book box reveals! I've gotten three since the last time we chatted about them. I know, I am kind out of control. But my defense is at least I'm not on drugs, right?

Books, not drugs, kids.

So here's what I got, lambs!

First up, I got another copy of The Raven, which I already have. Whomp, whomp. I'm sending my spare copy to my friend so at least I won't have two on my shelf. I got a copy of Fury, which looks/sounds cool but it's book THREE in a series so that's annoying because that means I now have to buy books one and two and what if they suck? What if they suck?! *sigh*

I also got another pen (which no hate, that's a damn good pen), a chapstick, a weird can koozie thing, and an assortment of book marks and postcards.

Which.. honestly this is disappointing. I hate to say it, but I'm going to give Bookworm Box one more month to get their shit together. The "swag" is terrible. At least with other subscription boxes we're getting really cute things like character key chains, necklaces, etc and for as much as we're paying for this (almost $50 a month!!) I feel like we should be getting more, to be honest. If other boxes can mail us books and super cool swag for less per month, I don't know why Bookworm Box can't. So.. we'll see.

They are currently on hiatus this month so we won't be getting a box in September, but supposedly we'll be getting one in October. We'll see.

I don't do gift boxes anymore but I want to start again. There are so many and like you explained, it's hit and miss. I used to do Birchbox but I am trying to do cruelty-free beauty so I gave it up. I would do a monthly subscription with cook books:)

I always get really disappointed when I see fab boxes and I get a drab one. The only subscription box I do now is Stitch Fix.

Hehe "books not drugs kids" too funny/true!

I love the idea of a book subscription but they all seem so expensive! You could have bought both of those books on your own for way less than the box cost.

I'd be cool if it was JUST books. To be honest if I for random bookmarks or whatevs they'd sit around on my desk until I clean it and then I'd probably throw them away.

Why would they send the third book in a series?! Poor planning. This box was not as great as other ones you've posted, that's for sure!

Doesn't sound like they planned out their boxes very well. I'm really sorry to hear about that. :(

Sorry this one didn't really work for you! I've been investigating a lot of subscription boxes lately and it seems like there are much better book ones out there!

Bummer. That's disappointing to get a book you already have, and to get one in a series. How could they not send you the first? Well, I'm sure they want you to buy the first two. I hope they get their act together and you get a fabulous box next.

There are so many subscription boxes out there. I feel like a learn about a new one every day. Sorry this box wasn't exactly what you wanted.

What an awesome idea for a subscription box! If only the execution were better...
