Book Summary from Amazon:
This version of the Bennet family—and Mr. Darcy—is one that you have and haven’t met before: Liz is a magazine writer in her late thirties who, like her yoga instructor older sister, Jane, lives in New York City. When their father has a health scare, they return to their childhood home in Cincinnati to help—and discover that the sprawling Tudor they grew up in is crumbling and the family is in disarray.
Youngest sisters Kitty and Lydia are too busy with their CrossFit workouts and Paleo diets to get jobs. Mary, the middle sister, is earning her third online master’s degree and barely leaves her room, except for those mysterious Tuesday-night outings she won’t discuss. And Mrs. Bennet has one thing on her mind: how to marry off her daughters, especially as Jane’s fortieth birthday fast approaches.
Enter Chip Bingley, a handsome new-in-town doctor who recently appeared on the juggernaut reality TV dating show Eligible. At a Fourth of July barbecue, Chip takes an immediate interest in Jane, but Chip’s friend neurosurgeon Fitzwilliam Darcy reveals himself to Liz to be much less charming. . . .
And yet, first impressions can be deceiving.
I feel like Cozy Reader Club does a great job of selecting one of the most popular releases each month – and May is no exception! I’m very excited to read this Pride and Prejudice retelling, and I have a few friends who I will be lending this book to when I’m done!
Sarah Welch Pottery Stoneware Travel Mug – Value $34
This is the most amazing travel mug I’ve ever seen! When I first unwrapped it, I was thinking, “Is this a vase?” No, it’s just the most beautiful coffee mug ever! (Though, I’m sure it could double as a vase!)
It’s glazed, and dishwasher and microwave safe!
This is officially one of my favorite subscription box items of all time – who knew travel mugs could be so unique and stunning!
Herkimer Coffee – Value $9
I’m a tea drinker, but my husband Eric is a coffee addict, so he immediately opened this bag to smell it! He’s already excited to make a pot of Herkimer coffee!
YarnLovin Mug Cozy – Value $10.95
Cute! I’m not sure if this goes with the mug included, but here it is on just to show what it looks like:
Cocomels in Sea Salt – Value $5
Cocomels!! If you avoid dairy but LOVE caramel, I can’t recommend Cocomels enough! Or if you have no dietary restrictions but just love delicious candy, these work too! 🙂
Verdict: This box has a value of about $75 (that’s with the discounted Amazon sale price of the box). I think that’s an OK value if you sign up with the $5 off for life coupon ($60 a month). Cozy Reader Club is still on the high-end in terms of cost for a monthly book box, so it probably isn’t for everyone, but I think they do an excellent job delivering on their promise of what you can expect in a box, and everything always feels special! This box is definitely about the experience!
