The Bookworm Box is a monthly subscription box that sends you 2 autographed romance novels along with other book-related swag.
Founded by bestselling author Colleen Hoover, The Bookworm Box is run by an all-volunteer team and donates 100% of its profit after overhead costs to different charities each month. Authors either donate their (signed) books for inclusion in the box, or they’re purchased at cost. Each box will include two autographed romance novels, as well as a fun assortment of book-related swag — such as bookmarks, pens, notepads, etc.
Disclosure: I received this box for review purposes. I was not compensated in any way. All opinions are my own. Post may contain affiliate and/or referral links.
Subscriptions are $39.99/month plus shipping.
Let’s see what’s in my June 2017 The Bookworm Box!
Everything was shipped in a purple box with the cute The Bookworm Box logo on top.
A peek inside!
There wasn’t an info card, but they did include a note to express their thanks to subscribers who have helped them donate close to $1,000,000 over the last 2 years. Woah!
Tapping the Billionaire by Max Monroe ($14.99, Amazon)
First, I should probably note that the books included in this box are definitely geared towards a mature audience. I wouldn’t recommend this for tweens or teens. (You’ll see why in the description below. 😉 )
A secret duo of romance authors team up under the pseudonym Max Monroe to bring you a sexy, laugh-out-loud new series. Are you ready to meet the Billionaire Bad Boys? Blind dates? Online dating profiles? Been there, done that. Georgia Cummings has zero luck with dating, and the era of the internet is not her friend. No matter how fast she runs, how many corners she turns, she can’t find her way out of this weird, alternate universe where men think dick pics are a replacement for small talk and getting to know a girl. One more crotch selfie and she might write men off for good… But why can’t she stop fantasizing about him? Kline Brooks is the quintessential billionaire bad boy—dark, styled, short hair, muscles for days, and a panty-dropping smile. Except—he isn’t. As his employee, he won’t touch her with a ten foot pole. But she won’t touch him either. Too bad their hormones missed the memo. Disclaimer: If you’re the type of woman who prefers crotch selfies to small talk, this book isn’t for you. If you enjoy random men you’ve never met filling up your inbox with dirty words and porn—for reasons focused more towards diddling your donut than laughing at the absurdity—this book isn’t for you. If you HATE laughing, this book isn’t for you. If you want your male leads to grunt, thrust like jack rabbits, and have one-track minds that prefer a nice pair of tits to brains every hour of every day for the rest of forever, well, then, this book still isn’t for you. But. If you enjoy a good swoon, a hearty laugh, witty banter, and some hot as f*@% f*@%ing, then consider Georgia Cummings your Girl Friday and Kline Brooks your next irresistible book boyfriend.
Nooope, not for tweens. Ha!
Emerge by S.E. Hall ($12.27, Amazon)
Okay, while I haven’t actually read it, this book sounds a lot less… raunchy? than the previous title. At least from what I gathered from the description and reviews on Amazon.
“You never have to be without me, Laney, never.”
He lied…my everything I ever knew, trusted, wanted…I am, in fact, without him.
On my own and out of my shell, I learn new things about life, friendship and…myself.
Like what you’ve always known may not be what you’ve always wanted.
Dane Kendrick awakened things within me that I never knew existed, unraveling and uncovering the real Laney Jo Walker.
I’m a NEW adult…so is my story.
Not much of a revealing description, but most of the reviews seem to be pretty positive.
Onto the swag!
A handy pocket-sized manicure kit to keep your nails looking good on the go. Includes scissors, clippers, a file, tweezers, and more.
This is so cute! — Sticky notes, page markers, a lined notebook, and a 5-inch ruler all in one. 🙂
The next 2 items are up for debate… As in, I have no idea what they’re supposed to be used for…
The Bookworm Box… Fabric… Thing?
When I first saw this folded up in the box, I assumed it was a tote bag… However, once I unfolded it I found that it was one solid piece of flat fabric. I honestly have no clue what this could be…
The Bookworm Box… ID Holder??
Another item that I’m not too sure about. It has a window that appears it could be used to hold an ID card, but I don’t know why or what purpose the strap would have.
Lastly, there were some promotional paper bookmarks, a The Bookworm Box pen, and an adorable The Bookworm Box magnet.
If you’d like to enjoy some steamy romance novels while also supporting a good cause, then The Bookworm Box is clearly the subscription box for you. 😉 Also, the fact that each book is signed by the author helps to set this box apart from other similar subs. Wins all around!
