This is a brand new book subscription box, I signed up for it as soon as they opened spots. This is a book box, like nothing that currently exists. With a wonderful concept, they send you a book, along with 4-5 wrapped gifts, and the gifts come with tags that have a page number on them. You unwrap the gift as you read that page of the book. I was so intrigued by this, I knew I had to try out at least one box.

I also like that they chose a book that I probably never would have chosen for myself, and I am forced to read it so I can open my gifts. It does however make reviews a bit tricky. So once I read the whole book, I will come and update this post, with pictures and info on my gifts. Plans range from $34.99 to $199.00

(from their website)

A unique reading experience! Each month you’ll receive a book to read, a 5″ x 7″ quote print, along with 2-4 corresponding gifts to match a quote/item mentioned in the book. Each individually wrapped with a page number. Readers, open the gifts as they finish the corresponding page. The experience is unforgettable! It makes the reader feel as if the book is coming to life!

You’ll also find book club discussion questions in each monthly box. Each question will have a date next to it. Log onto our Instagram page on that date to discuss the book with other members of the Book Club community!

 Lilac Girls, By Martha Hall Kelly- New York socialite Caroline Ferriday has her hands full with her post at the French consulate and a new love on the horizon. But Caroline’s world is forever changed when Hitler’s army invades Poland in September 1939—and then sets its sights on France.

An ocean away from Caroline, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish teenager, senses her carefree youth disappearing as she is drawn deeper into her role as courier for the underground resistance movement. In a tense atmosphere of watchful eyes and suspecting neighbors, one false move can have dire consequences.

For the ambitious young German doctor, Herta Oberheuser, an ad for a government medical position seems her ticket out of a desolate life. Once hired, though, she finds herself trapped in a male-dominated realm of Nazi secrets and power.

The lives of these three women are set on a collision course when the unthinkable happens and Kasia is sent to Ravensbrück, the notorious Nazi concentration camp for women. Their stories cross continents—from New York to Paris, Germany, and Poland—as Caroline and Kasia strive to bring justice to those whom history has forgotten.
