It’s no secret that I love trying new subscription boxes, so I was beyond excited when I got the chance to collaborate with a brand new book subscription this month. Hello Book Lover offers two books every month and you can choose one or let them surprise you. Plus, each package comes with additional goodies.
An email is sent the 15th of the month with your book selections for the following month, and you have three days to choose. The May selections were Brooklyn by Colm Toibin and Longbourn by Jo Baker. I decided to be surprised, so let’s see what’s inside…
♥ The Subscription: Hello Book Lover
♥ The Cost: $28/month plus shipping
♥ The Products: Choice of book plus 2-3 surprise items
♥ Ships to: US
Inside the May box:
♥ Longbourn by Jo Baker
♥ Heart tote
♥ HBL bookmark
♥ HBL sticker
♥ HBL info card
I really like that Hello Book Lover lets you choose your book because it can be frustrating to receive a book you already have. And, if you do a month to month subscription, you can skip a month, which is nice if you’ve already read both books.
Like many book subscriptions, this box isn’t a steal, but the books are thoughtfully curated, and I like that each month has a theme. At the end of every month, there will be a book club, where you can share your thoughts on that month’s selections.
The June theme is In Bloom and the selections are Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave and The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert. You have until the 15th of the month to subscribe to the next month’s box, so it’s not too late to grab a June selection. Plus, you can save 10% off your first month with the code HAPPY10. You can subscribe here.
