Growing up, I was a total book worm. I would read anything I got my hands on. However, after becoming a parent, even though I still loved books, reading no longer became a priority. Especially when I was the kind of person who would stay up until 4am when I got engrossed in a good book! But that wasn’t really feasible with a baby around.
In the last couple of years I’ve started reading again and I love it. It’s something that’s just for me. It’s almost a form of self care. Then when I found out about the Sweet Reads Box, I had to try it out!
Sweet Reads Box is a bookworm’s paradise. It’s a monthly Canadian subscription box that sends a box with a new book and goodies related to the story to your door every month! I was lucky to get one of the October boxes before it sold out. (p.s. at the end of the post, I will be giving away an October Sweet Reads Box to one lucky reader.)
Sweet Reads Box – October
Faithful by Alice Hoffman
Octobers book is called Faithful and just reading the description on the back had me hooked! Here is a little teaser:
“Shelby Richmond is an ordinary girl, until one night an extraordinary tragedy changes her fate: her best friend’s future is destroyed in an accident, while Shelby walks away without a scratch — although she’s plagued by heartbreak and guilt. Then the first anonymous postcard arrives: SAY SOMETHING.”
I couldn’t wait to jump right into it!
Mark My Words
Of course with every book you need the right bookmark to keep your place. October’s Sweet Reads Box came with these adorable bookmarks that are unique and fun! (The kids’ tried to take them from me for their own books.)
This cashew crunch with milk chocolate toffee was literally to die for. I ate it all without sharing. It’s the perfect reading treat. It’s also gluten-free and made in Ontario, so double bonus.
Tiny Blue Labs Socks
Made by the Canadian brand Hatley, these socks are perfect for keeping your feet warm on those cold fall nights when you’re snuggled up on the couch, reading.
They are connected with Faithful because of the main character Shelby’s love of animals.
“Things to Fetch” Notepad
Also by Hatley, this item keeps with the animal theme and it’s perfect for your daily to-do list.
This very cool magnetic map of New York is great for keeping track of Shelby’s journey in New York City. Plus it’s perfect for hanging your kid’s artwork on the fridge.
And the last item in the October Sweet Reads box is Fresh Roast Kyoto Coffee. A must- have those nights when you need to stay up and finish that awesome book!
This is the perfect box for a book lover or for someone who needs to incorporate a little more “me time” in their lives. And don’t forget, Christmas is around the corner so it would be the perfect gift for the bookworm on your list!
