    A gorgeous box of treats 👍🏼

  2. Stacy E. (verified owner)

    Loved it as always! This is my favorite book box!

  3. Sandra R. (verified owner)

    I absolutely loved my first box in March (firstly it was a book I hadn’t read which was inside – and one which was on my wishlist – so perfect for me) and I loved the extras which tied in with the theme. It’s the perfect monthly sub for any book lover (and would make a great gift also).

  4. Tamsin (verified owner)

    This box is amazing! I order the Crime &mystery box and every time I’m on the edge of my seat…never failed to deliver so far. Definitely worth the money

  5. Yvonne Bastian (verified owner)

    In was absolutely delighted with my delivery. I received a book that was in my wish list so I did give a squeal of delight. I loved the little wooden plaque and the hanging pot that now has a little air plant nestled in it.
    I am a big fan of these boxes, I bought my first one as a treat to myself and enjoyed it so much I have continued my subscription. The box would be perfect as a gift for a book lover and they are always a delight to open and meticulously presented. I would recommend them a huge amount.

    Before I found My Chronicle Book Box I never knew that a monthly book subscription was a thing, but now I can’t live without it, i’m currently only two months in but already I am already waiting eagerly each month for me next box to see what book i’m getting along with my goodies, not only that but it is honestly so worth the money! Not only is each book signed, you get amazing gifts along with it and everything is packed and picked with care and you can feel the love coming from the creator! Honestly adore it, i’m even suggesting all my book obsessed friends join, I will now and forever be a loyal and happy customer! 🙂
