Sweet Reads Box - May 2018




The tagline for Sweet Reads Box is "me time. delivered." and their boxes are curated each month to include:
  • a bestselling novel
  • a delicious drink
  • a sweet treat
  • an item (or items!) connected to your novel 
  • a card explaining each item and why it was selected
Sweet Reads Box aims to provide you with everything you need to for some quality alone time with an excellent book.

The cost per box is $49.99 CAD + shipping, and there are discounts if you purchase 3 or 6 month subscriptions. At this point, they only ship within Canada.

Let's check out what was in the May box:



The Shoe on the Roof by Will Ferguson

English Toffee from Sweetsmith Candy Co

Colombian Irish Cream Coffee from Kyoto Coffee

The Week From Hell Hand Lotion from Walton Wood Farm

Shoe Eraser from Fred and Friends 

Leather and Vanilla Soap from Perth Soap Company


Let's talk pros and cons, because I didn't enjoy this box as much as I did in February, unfortunately.

PROS
- I still love the focus on Canadian authors and Canadian vendors.
- I think this box would appeal to both men and women which is pretty unique in the book box world.
- The English toffee was delicious!!

CONS
- The value this month is not strong. My rough calculations came out to less than the cost of the box. This is probably because I gave no value to the hand lotion. There were three of the same lotion samples included, and I could get sample one-time use lotions many places for free so..... :(
- The scent of the soap is a little masculine for me. Rob likes though, so he's got a new soap now!
- This book is not one I'm interested in reading, but I recognize that's a personal choice.

If you want to give them a try, check out the Sweet Reads Box website. I think it could be a unique gift for the male book lovers in your life who have never tried a book box.
