    I loved my first My Chronicle Book Box! I chose the crime and mystery option as I wanted inspiration for new books in this genre and I am delighted with the contents. The books included both look interesting and are very different, and the accompanying bookish goodies were excellent. The presentation and attention to detail was fantastic too and everything was wrapped or packaged nicely. Would definitely recommend!

  2. Amy (verified owner)

    Firstly it arrived with perfect timing as I’d literally just finished the book I was reading, so that made me super happy. I’m pleased with all the books and I’m looking forward to working my through them. I was a little disappointed with the tea, only because I personally don’t like it but the lip balm (Gone with the Gin) was lush, the print has pride of place on my mantle piece, I’ve already started to use the notebook to record the books Ive read so far this year and I enjoyed reading the interviews.

  3. Helen G. (verified owner)

    Interesting contents, books I’ve not yet read plus some lovely goodies. I’m very pleased!

    Just received my first box and am actually thrilled. Not a word I usually use but opening the box made me feel all excited like a child again. The books are great and have started the first one allready. Beautifully packaged and love the extra pieces too. Getting the authors signatures is a special treat too. It’s going to be a long wait for the next box.

  6. Sandra Nuttall (verified owner)

    Absolutely fantastic, love everything about My Chronicle Book Box and can’t wait to get another.

  7. Kate Eveleigh (verified owner)

  8. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Very pleased with the book box.

  9. Sandra Nuttall (verified owner)

    Wonderful as ever.

  10. Anna (verified owner)

    I think it’s the best box I’ve ever received. Each book is packed so beautifully! Box is focused on books, not items that I won’t ever use. I enjoyed interviews with the authors and if you could have a real seal instead of a plastic sticker, then it’d be so cool! If I may suggest something – please replace packing tape with paper one (or you can buy 100% recycled plastic one) and try to avoid plastic on gadgets.

  11. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Presentation of the box was flawless with great attention to detail. There were three crime books plus a selection of book goodies. Personally I think this box is expensive compared to others on the market.

  12. Christina (verified owner)

    I am totally and utterly delighted with my book box, the attention to detail was incredible as regards content and presentation. It went beyond my expectations, words cannot express my reaction upon opening my first box. Thank you to everyone involved. Highly recommended !

    Was so excited to receive my first Crime and Mystery Box, and it didn’t disappoint. Loved all the gifts especially the signed bookplates and candle.

    3.5 ⭐️’s
    It was a great box, but sadly I had already purchased signed copies of the books received, as per the previous box. I do LOVE the goodies inside though 📚❤️ It may be my own fault for being a big crime fiction fan. I’m still looking forward to the next one and loving the subscription over all.

  26. Alena Dukalskis (verified owner)

    I was amazed when my box arrived. It was packaged beautifully, with each book individually wrapped. The little extra gift were gorgeous and I can’t wait to use them all. The letter, the information cards and even the invoice slip were all on lovely paper and the whole experience of opening it felt almost luxurious. I’ve started one of the books already and although I’m only about 50 pages in, I’m loving it.

    I honestly cannot praise this subscription enough and I’m already excited for the next delivery!!!!

    Thank you so much 🙂

    Good variety of books

  41. Sandra G. (verified owner)

    Just received my first My Chronicle Book Box and I have to say I’m impressed. So attentive details, a letter addressed to me with a wax seal type, so beautiful wrapping in the books… I couldn’t almost unpack so I wouldn’t disturb the details 🙂 I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the content 😀
    The books “sound” totally to my taste. Nice that each book has a small page with author interview (printed like an old newspaper page. Loved that detail). And I love that this box is so focused in the books/authors.
    Was great to see that this box is focused in less items but better quality and it’s things that in fact I will use.

  42. Becki (verified owner)

    Gifts were great, just need to find extra days in the week to read the books!

    Very nicely wrapped, so great on details. Just had a small issue with one off the books that came with a small damage, like was forced open and “cracked”, it looked like someone was handing the book several time before was sent to me. But I’m happy with the box anyway.

  75. Tracey Vince (verified owner)

    nice box

  76. Caron Small (verified owner)

    I am excited to read the Sophie Hannah book and will get to it as soon as possible! 😊 The pouch is fab and I love the lip balm as well! I really enjoyed opening up the box, despite the rather battered condition it reached me in! I emailed Louise just to make her aware of this in case of any comeback and she replied really quickly and in such a lovely way! 😉 I need to tell her that everything was present in the box and nothing had been damaged!

  77. Kimberly Graffin (verified owner)
