the book case

A subscription box for book worms

I love reading and one of my favourite things to do is spend hours in a bookshop (much to the delight of my boyfriend). And if you like reading too, you’re going to love The Book Case.

The Book Case is a monthly subscription box that contains a newly released book as well as 3-5 goodies to go with the book. I got sent the November box, and the theme was Cyberpunk. Part of the fun is that you don’t know which book you’ll get. It’s like Christmas came early.

Let’s get started. A few of the goodies are individually wrapped which makes it even more exciting.

Bookmark: which I can never have too many of because I’m one of those people that bends the pages to mark my place. Yes, I love reading, but I’m one of those people.

Wicked bag: I use them for my shoes when I go away or if I forget to bring a bag to Woolies. These are small enough.

Divergent earrings: from the Divergent series, which I have only watched and not read. Sacrilege I know!

Groot sticker: from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Nail art: I have an office end of year party coming up and I think these will tie in nicely for the Summer of Love theme.

Even without the book, this box is amazing! Look at all these awesome goodies.

The book: The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James. It’s about a girl who falls in love with someone she has never met who is light years away. I’ve already started reading it and I’m hooked. I love books that I can binge read. GoodReads gives it 4/5.

But wait, there’s more. I really wasn’t expecting another book, so this is the icing on the cake.

The second book: Warcross by Marie Lu is about a girl who works as a bounty hunter, catching those who bet on Warcross illegally. For most Warcross is not just a game it’s a way of life. Goodreads gives it 4.1/5.

Here’s what you need to know about The Book Case:

The Book Case costs R450 per box and you decide after the theme has been released if you’d like to get that month’s box. It is completely secure, as they use PayFast. I know this because once I knew the November box was coming, I immediately bought the December box. You can pay via credit or debit card.

The Book Case is suitable for 14 years or older but there are also bookcases for kids, which cost R390. The Little box is suitable for 4-7-year-olds and the Junior box is for 8-12-year-olds. Both of the December boxes are already sold out, which sucks because one of the themes was Christmas at Hogwarts!

Postage is included and each box is delivered on the last day of the month. Mine arrived the next day, so you can expect your box soon.

Disclaimer: I received this awesome box from the kind folks at The Book Case (Thanks, Natasha). I can’t wait to receive my December box, which I paid for because why wouldn’t you want something so awesome?
