I love The Bookish Box (curated by Appraising Pages), and when I saw that they were coming out with a romance-themed book box I knew I had to try it out, even just once!
Beaulitful Reads is a newish monthly subscription box and book club that will feature a new adult or chick-lit romance novel each month. Also included are a few high-quality bookish goodies.
Cost $24/month + shipping. There is a small discount if you prepay for 3 months.
This month the book featured is Beautiful by Christina Lauren. It also came with a signed bookplate! Here's a blurb about the Beautiful:
After walking in on her boyfriend shagging another girl in their place, Pippa Bay Cox ditches London for the States to go on a drunken road trip with Ruby Miller and some of her Beautiful friends.
Scaling the career ladder is the default way to deal with heartbreak—and to just deal—for Jensen Bergstrom. Absolutely buried by his drive and workload, he rarely takes time for himself. But when his sister Hanna convinces him to join the gang on a two-week wine tour, he has a rare moment of cutting loose. Of course, it’s only once he’s committed that he realizes the strange girl he met briefly on the plane is coming along, too. She might be too much for him…or he might realize his life has become too small and needs her to make it bigger, crazier.
With this circle of friends there’s always something going on: from Chloe and Sara’s unexpected personality swaps to Will’s new domestic side to Bennett’s text message barrage and George’s own happily-ever-after. In short, their adventures in love, friendship, and hilarity are nothing short of Beautiful.
I've been reading a ton of romance lately, and this book is highly reviewed on Amazon, so I'm looking forward to reading this one!
Beaulitful Reads also has its own Facebook group for organized book club discussions with the authors about their featured books.
Along with the book Beautiful, the Beaulitful Reads box this month included a silver ampersand bracelet and an extra large stemless book club wine glass.
I've actually been craving a stemless wine glass for awhile now, but haven't picked any up because I have perfectly functioning regular wine glasses at home, so I am so excited to have received one in this month's box!! Plus I'm super impressed that it was packaged well enough to be shipped to me without breaking.
I always think the value of the boxes by Appraising Pages are excellent because the items are such high quality, and with Beaulitful Reads they've also clearly done research to ensure that the books featured are extremely enjoyable.
