Book Riot Book Subscription Box

I am excited to read about a new feature from Book Riot (an amazing book blog) where they are going to send out a quarterly book box.  What is this you ask?  Well it is similar to those of you that have seen these box subscriptions everyone is doing lately. One popular one that I know of is Birchbox where you get quite a few beauty samples for $10 each month.  I always see pictures of these in my friend's instagrams.  Now... Book Riot is finally doing one with bookish items!



When you get the items they will be worth over $50... so it is usually well worth it.  What I also think is going to be neat is that the boxes will be themed.   I won't buy it the first time around.  I would like to see a box first and get an idea of what it's going to be like.  Looks like one of the best ways to see what's in the boxes is to follow the hashtag #BKR01  The boxes ship on Nov. 29 th so I expect to see pictures shortly after that.

Right now there are subscription boxes to make-up, animals, and even food!  $50 may seem like a lot but if you look at the other subscription boxes out there this is reasonably priced.  I also love that it's a surprise every time you get a box.  You don't know what you are going to get!

  2. I was just saying the other day how I wished they had one like this for books. 50$ is a big investment though, I will check out the first box before I think of ordering. I don't want to end up with something I will never like.

    1. I agree... $50 is a lot. But if you think about Birchbox for $10 it is because you only get tiny samples. You don't actually get the full sized product. Technically you are only paying $20 more for this since it is every three months. I'll have up a post when I see one of the first boxes!

  3. That is an awesome idea, and I think it has crazy potential. I will also be waiting for some updates before I invest in it, but I am definitely excited! Thanks for sharing!

  4. This is a really awesome idea! I am so glad you posted this on your blog if not I would never have found out and I wouldn't want to miss out on something so big! I really would like to see what is in the box. When you do buy one, you should show some pictures of all the goodies you need to show-off. ;D

    1. Totally! I am probably not going to buy one till the second quarter. I want to see what is in the first box first. Though.. I am a little tempted to just go ahead and order the first box!!

  7. I freaked out when I read about this book subscription. I had been looking for one, and boom! Here it is! However, $50 is a lot of money. :\ I hope there are awesome things in the box (what am I saying? Of course it will!) because maybe it'll convince me to subscribe. ;)

    1. I just can't wait to see this box... perhaps I should've posted this after the first box came out so we could all look at what's inside of it and judge it amongst ourselves. Oh well... in a couple of weeks I'll find a pic on the internet!

  8. A podcaster that I listen to does one of these box things too. This sounds like a neat idea. I might have to give it a shot in a few months when money isn't so tight!

    1. These box things are so popular now. The make-up one seems really neat to me. But I just want to make sure that I use everything in the box. That's where it would be a bummer... if you spent the $50 and didn't enjoy what you received.

  9. I don't know if I would sign up for this, but I am interested to see what's in the first box. I have a few friends who do these subscription boxes for clothes and makeup.

    1. I'll be keeping my eyes out Nov 29th when they first start being mailed out. Too bad it's every three months instead of a monthly box.
