With the rise in subscription boxes (for all different types of products) it’s a refreshing change to find a box that ISN’T subscription but is available on a bi-monthly basis.  And for all us bookworms, is full of gorgeous bookish merchandise at a reasonable cost.

That’s exactly what you get with the Book Spot Box.

Book Spot Box

The creator behind Book Spot Box is Kate who blogs at Kate’s Book Spot.  She’s been a rep for some fab companies on Instagram so you know she’s on trend with what we all love about the book world.  Which means of course that in each box you know you’re going to receive things you will use and enjoy.

Kate also listens to what her customers would like.  She’s always asking questions on Instagram on what types of products and what themes people are interested in.  And answering questions too. 

I love that each month there is a different theme.  The theme for the first box In August was Battles & War.  Here’s my unboxing of the goodies:

If you missed my unboxing story of the very first @bookspotbox here’s the gorgeous goodies with the theme of #battlesandwar I 💕 everything and it’s such great value. You still have a chance, today only, of signing up to the #bookspotbox newsletter for a sneaky reveal of an item in the September box. There’s a different theme every month. **We are delighted to have collaborated with Kate at @parkview_creative and honoured to be a part of her journey.** Here’s the items in the August box. ______________________ Polyresin Sword Pen. 4 different styles. Mine reminds me of the Green Man! It’s great to hold to write with so practical as well as good to look at. _______________________ Exclusive Six of Crows inspired Ketterdam lip balm. This feels great on and the fruity flavour devine. Made by @oriandle _______________________ Exclusive ACOWAR inspired mini candle, Defeating Hybern. Love the glitter! Smells great too. From @lacunacandleco _______________________ GoT inspired bookmark designed and created by @parkview_creative _______________________ Exclusive LoTR inspired A6 print designed and created by @wizarding.letters _______________________ Mageborn by Stephen Aryan, the first in a fantasy series and a signed bookplate from the author. With a quote from one of my favourite authors on the cover (looking at you @sennydreadful) I know I’m going to love this. _____________________

The cost for all this?  £20 plus P&P.  You have to agree with me that compared to other boxes, this is a very reasonable cost.

Kate and I have been blogging buddies (and even met In Real Life!) for about six years and it’s been amazing watching her passion for all things books funnelled into a family run business.  I have to admit I’m so very proud of her!

In summary, every two months the Book Spot Box contains a different genre of paperback along with a handful of bookish goodies relating to that month’s theme. Each item in the box is carefully chosen to fit the theme and then lovingly packed.  A reasonable cost which is currently £20.  And NO subscription so you can choose the genre that fits with your reading preferences.

Try one – you won’t be disappointed!
