Book subscription box un-boxing and (crappy) photos on the way! I’m completely over the moon because I’ve recently received my first book subscription box ever and really, it took a lot of patience to not post anything about it until the first of July!
Bookish Bundle is a Malaysian book subscription box service that delivers a magical box of bookish wonderfulness to local doors once every three months. I missed it’s first box when it came out in April this year, so I certainly couldn’t miss the second one—especially when it has the theme of ‘Royalty’ (OwlCrate also had a June Royalty Box, so of course, that made me even more excited for Bookish Bundle’s)!
NOTE: My ‘reactions’ towards the contents of this box right here are the actual reactions I had when I first opened this box which means that I’m going to be completely honest and thus, I apologize in advance if I offend anyone!
Firstly, I was pleasantly surprised when I removed the mailing bag the box was in. I had expected the shoe box…box that Bookish Bundle used for April but instead, they’ve swapped to the mailer box which is awesome! Seeing it completely raised my hopes even higher. This is how the box looks like up-close:
And, this is exactly what I saw when I opened the box:
Excitement level? Incredibly high, especially when this insane flowery scent assaulted my nose. I removed all the contents, laid them out…and my hopes fell a little.
And, that’s everything in this box folks! I’m slightly disappointed at the quality of the items for this month’s box but nevertheless, it’s still a nice one. I’m not sure if I’ll buy the next one, though because there’s a bunch of new Malaysian book subscription services popping up right now and I’d just love to get at least one box from them all!
Do you have a favorite book subscription box? Have you ever bought one, or at least have one on your wishlist?
