Awesome Blog Posts You May Have Missed (December 13-19)

In an effort to be a more active member of the book blogging community, I’m planning on making this a weekly post where I share some of the interesting blog posts that have caught my eye in the last week.

It’s the perfect post to enjoy on a Saturday morning. Pour yourself a big cup of coffee and enjoy.

I’m taking a break from regular posting (I may still do a round up like this) until 2021. Stay healthy, safe, & warm friends! I’ll still be on Bookstagram.

Items I’d Like To See In Book Subscription Boxes

If you’re in the online bookish community, you’ve likely seen or felt the burnout of item fatigue. Book subscription boxes have been around for a while so many of the items that are being sent out are starting to feel ‘overdone’. I know it’s got to be exhausting to be constantly thinking and producing new products. The companies and shops need to keep up with their reputation and try to stay ahead of the game.

I thought it would be fun to brainstorm some items I’d like to see sent in book subscription boxes. I’m not saying they’d be a new & novel item idea (I can’t possibly keep up with every single box out there) or they’d be useful for every subscriber (I don’t that’s possible for any box). It’s just a list of items that haven’t been done to death (candle, book sleeve, enamel pin, etc.).

It should go without saying that I mean I want these well designed (possibly working with a real artist). I don’t want something that looks like it’s been bought on Wish/AliExpress and had a decal thrown on it.

Book Box Guesses: January 2021

It’s no secret that I’m a book box lover. Part of the fun is trying to guess the upcoming month’s books (even if I don’t subscribe). Here’s a round up of what I think will be in the upcoming month’s boxes. I’ll update this post as new themes are revealed. These posts are typically scheduled around the 15th of each month.

If you’d like to play along, drop your guesses in the comments and I’ll add them to the post! If you think I’m wrong, please leave a comment as to which book is a better fit.

Let me know if I’m missing a box you think should be added to the list.

If you work for one of the boxes above and would like to offer a discount code to my readers or a referal link, email me and I’d be happy to add it to the post.

I STRONGLY urge you to research a box before buying or subscribing. There’s been some shady behavior and you don’t want to get caught up in it.
