2017 Plastic Sunglasses – Value $6.99?

Speaking of New Year’s… There’s a festive set of sparkling 2017 sunglasses in the box that you can sport at your New Year’s celebrations. I couldn’t find this exact style online, so the value is based on a similar item I found.

As party sunglasses go, these are actually pretty sturdy. Would I wear them past midnight on the big night? Probably not. But they’re a nice souvenir of the holiday!

Filthy Rich by Raine Miller – Value $9.98 on Amazon (retail price $12.95)

Let’s get to the books! The first read in the box is a paperback copy of the first book in the Blackstone Dynasty series. It’s a soapy story of love, lust, and luxury in the world of the impossibly rich.

Book Summary from Amazon:

Billionaire Caleb Blackstone lives in the glamorous world of wealth and success, with every material luxury. But the moment he sees Brooke Casterley, none of that matters. Caleb is filled with a raw, undeniable need that he can’t ignore…for a girl who is so completely different from everything and everyone he’s ever known.

Only Brooke isn’t looking for love. She knows all too well just how much damage the wrong guy can do. Still, what sane, broke British girl can resist the charms of an incredibly sexy, chivalrous billionaire? What starts as flirtation quickly turns into all-consuming passion. Nothing could have prepared her for the searing heat of Caleb’s touch—or just how much she craves him.

Their whirlwind romance is the stuff of high-society fantasy—but for every moment of pleasure, there is a cost. Past mistakes and tragedy shadow them both…and falling for him might be the kind of trouble she can’t afford.

There’s a signature from the author on an inside page!

This story gets gratuitous with the “rich” motifs (Helicopters! Mansions! Trips to Abu Dhabi!), and of course, there are plenty of sexy situations throughout. If you’re a fan of the 50 Shades extravagance but not the boundary-pushing behavior, this book will probably fit the bill!

Love Me Sweet by Tracy Brogan – Value $9.99 on Amazon (retail price $12.95)

The next paperback has a softer, more romantic feel to it.

Book Summary on Amazon:

Delaney Masterson isn’t looking for fame.

Yes, she has famous parents and a reality TV show, but she’s not the wild-child celebrity the paparazzi have painted her to be. Until…The Scandal. When an old boyfriend releases a private video, Delaney’s name becomes every comedian’s favorite punch line. To escape the media, she sneaks away to Bell Harbor, Michigan—during the worst winter in fifty years.

Adventure show cameraman Grant Connelly has stayed away from Bell Harbor—mostly by choice—but when a family obligation converges with a spontaneous career decision, it’s time to return home.

When bad weather, missing money, honky-tonk musicians, and Elvis impersonators throw Grant and Delaney together on an unexpected road trip, emotions get all shook up. They know only fools fall in love, but they can’t help falling. Still, Delaney has a secret that could tear them apart forever.

Can they weather the storm? Or will this romantic ride end at the Heartbreak Hotel?

I like the witty personality of the protagonist and the rom-com energy of the story.

2017 Real Book Boyfriends Calendar – Value $3.50

Get ready for this hilarious little item! To benefit Autism for Action, Bookworm Box made this calendar, which is filled with hilarious “pin-up” photos of authors’ leading men.

Bookworm Box Magnet – Value $1.00?

This magnet is about two inches long, and it’s not the strongest thing in the world. I wish it’d have more hold to it (I always have papers and photos I’m trying to stick to the fridge), but I think it’ll just be a decoration for now.

Bookworm Box Pen – Value $1.00?

I’m never going to turn down a pen, especially if it has a nice, smooth ballpoint like this one. This simple item will be a staple in my purse, for sure!

Coloring Postcard – Value $1.00?

This promo card for The Pawn by Skye Warren has a coloring-book-style design on the back and comes with a tiny pack of itty bitty pencils!

While I’m not a huge fan of the chess design, I do like coloring! This card will be a nice way to destress after a long day.

Tear You Apart Bookmark – Value $1.00?

There are a few last promotional items in the box, including this bookmark for Tear You Apart by Megan Hart.

Here’s what’s on the flip side.

I checked out the URL listed at the bottom, but saw that the link was broken? Oh well, still a helpful bookmark!

Tempting Jo Magnet – Value $1.00?

Last but not least, there’s another magnet. This time, it’s for Tempting Jo by Nancee Cain. This magnet is about as strong as the other one, so it’s more of a decoration than a functional piece.

Verdict: I’d recommend this box for avid romance readers. I like that the outside of the box gives the impression that it’s a sweet, innocent book box, but inside, it’s anything but! I estimate the overall value of the box is around $36.00—apart from the books, most of the products were simple promotional items, which are worth a glance but don’t have a lot of value past that. The books were fun, but I wanted something a little more for the price.

What do you think of The Bookworm Box?
