I’ve been looking at book subscription boxes for a while, but I’ve been put off by high prices and themes that I’m not that keen on.
I stumbled across Reading in Heels on Instagram a few weeks ago and was impressed with what it was offering. At an affordable £10 a month for a book and some goodies, this seemed right up my street.
3 days into the month, July’s box has just landed on my doorstep and here’s a little peek at what’s inside…
1. Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie
2. Sweat Theatre Honeycomb Milk Chocolate thanks to @SweetTheatreLtd
3. Phase Zero Liquid Lipstick in Postbox Red from @lovemebeautyuk
4. Taylors of Harrogate Hot Java Lava Coffee Bag
5. A cute pocket mirror
This book has recently been announced the winner of the Women’s Prize for Fiction 2018 and has been nominated for all kinds of awards since being published. Described by The Guardian as being “a powerful exploration of the clash between society, family and faith in the modern world”, I’m excited to get reading. Look out for my review in the next few weeks! (update: see my review here)
I’m not a coffee drinker myself, so I’ll have to pass this on, but who doesn’t love a lipstick and a bar of chocolate?
I really appreciate the colour scheme to the box. Everything is a firey yellow, red or orange and it’s clear that a lot of thought has gone into the planning to make everything look perfect.
I particularly like the social book club aspect of this box. The website hosts an online review forum where readers can discuss the book of the month and I’m sure to get involved once I’ve finished the book. They also provide a cute card to help review each book yourself, ideal for Instagram or Twitter.
I’m impressed with July and am looking forward to seeing what August brings!
