Recently, I had the pleasure of receiving a Love My Read Book Box! I had seen them all over Instagram and they just looked wonderful.
There are a lot of book subscription boxes around at the moment and sometimes it’s hard to filter through and find the one that is just right, however Love My Read is an all round beauty for me.
Each month you get to choose the book you’d like to receive out of 6 new releases. There’s normally a great collection of fiction and non-fiction books for adults to pick from, so you know exactly what you’re getting and they are no surprise when it comes to your door. As a big reader, the mystery boxes are a little scary to me!
For June, I chose Transcendent Kingdom. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t fall in love with the cover as soon as I saw it, it’s simply stunning. I also hadn’t heard a bad review about it and was intrigued about the poignant story.
As a child Gifty would ask her parents to tell the story of their journey from Ghana to Alabama, seeking escape in myths of heroism and romance. When her father and brother succumb to the hard reality of immigrant life in the American South, their family of four becomes two – and the life Gifty dreamed of slips away.
Years later, desperate to understand the opioid addiction that destroyed her brother’s life, she turns to science for answers. But when her mother comes to stay, Gifty soon learns that the roots of their tangled traumas reach farther than she ever thought. Tracing her family’s story through continents and generations will take her deep into the dark heart of modern America.
In the Love My Read book box for June, I also received:
- Joe’s Tea & Co – an award winning company producing organic tea with a focus on sustainability. The tea received were St Clements Lemon and Sweet Chamomile and they were beautiful!
- Tasty Mates – with plenty of unique flavours, this company produces vegan gummy sweet with natural flavours and colours. I received a packet of the salted caramel sweets which was a new flavour to me!
- Bookmark – a sweet illustrated bookmark from the team at Love My Read.
- Postcards – three lovely postcards with quotes and illustrations.
At £16.99, Love Me Read is such a value for money. With brand new releases to pick from and few lovely extras to make the reading experience all the better.
