Each box comes with a card detailing the brands and items included.


All The Bright Places Shirt – Value $27.50

Each month will include an exclusive tee design from Appraising Pages just for The Bookish Box subscribers. I like the fit and fabric weight of this tee (100% preshrunk cotton). I went with the women’s fitted tee sizing, but they also have unisex tee sizing.


All The Bright Places Inspired Mug from A Bird in the Hand – Value $12

Well, I think I need to read All The Bright Places! This small mug is cute even if I don’t get the reference yet, though!


Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close Inspired Mini Poster by Cargo Collective – Value $10?

This measures 8.5″ by 11″. I wasn’t having any luck searching for this poster, so I’m estimating on the value.


Looking for Alaska Inspired Earrings from The Geeky Cauldron – Value $5?

This is another item I couldn’t find on their site, so I’m estimating the value. These earrings aren’t my style – but they definitely have a retro ’90s vibe – they remind me of the Claire’s shopping trips of my childhood!


We Were Liars Inspired Bookmark from A Bookish Babe – Value $1?

This month’s box is really reminding me of all the books on my To Be Read list!


The Sky is Everywhere Inspired Bath Bomb by The Soapie Shoppe – Value $5.50

This bath bomb is huge! (3 inches diameter). I’m having a hard time determining the exact scent, but I think it may be this bath bomb renamed.

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $61. (I estimated values on a few items so that number may be a little off). I think this is such a thoughtfully put together box, and I would recommend it as a great gift subscription for a YA book lover.

What do you think of The Bookish Box?

  1. I really wish I could find a box like this that’s focused on classic literature. It would be right up my nerd alley.

  2. I’d love that mug!

  3. i just had to say, if you have not read We Were Liars yet, you definitely should! It’s such a great book! <3 😀

  4. I really love this box. I think I may sign up for this sub. Do you know if they ever offer any coupons or special deals?

    • I don’t think they do – at least I haven’t seen any come up in the past few months.

      • Well, the price isn’t *too* bad for such a well curated box. As an ex-librarian, this box is perfect for me. And whatever I don’t keep can be used as stocking stuffers for Christmas!
