Wouldn’t you love to receive a treat from your past selves in the form of subscription boxes? Well then, here’s your chance. Whilst it’s great to try new beauty products or clothes, you may want something more enriching for the mind. Book subscription boxes are a fantastic way to expand your reading, indulge in some self-care, and treat yourself mentally.
Reading is the best form of escapism and can help you learn more about the world around you. The constant struggle is finding books you’ll like and resonate with. Book clubs are therefore a wonderful way to get recommendations. Alternatively, if you’re not the overly sociable type or a quick reader, a subscription box might be the ultimate thing for you.
Books That Matter (£17 per month)
Books That Matter are focused on bringing more female-led stories to the table and their selections are absolutley phenomenal. Their service will provide you with a female-authored book and three gifts by female creatives each month, with each instalment featuring a theme around women. Past gifts have been tote bags, additional books featuring short essays, and bookmarks. This all for a reasonable £17.
You can try out the subscription with a one-off purchase or you can save some money by buying in advance. If you’re looking to branch out with your reading and discover some amazing new writers, then this is definitely the box for you.
