Bookish Box Drama

I’ve been away from the bookish world for a while but I know many of you appreciate the book subscription news I share so I’m popping in to share with those who don’t know or are researching boxes to subscribe to.

Kevin T Norman is sharing some Bookish Box tea on TikTok. (Are people still actually spending money with The Bookish Box???)

Mixed Format Books

One of my favorite newer trends is the mixed format book. Traditional novels include just paragraphs within chapters. Occasionally, you might find a picture or two but the book is primarily just blocks of text.

The books featured on this list reject such a traditional idea of a book. These books have:

  • Emails
  • Maps
  • Audio Transcripts
  • Diary entries
  • Letters
  • Interviews

These books are fascinating ways to tell a story. They’re also a wonderful way to grab the attention of a struggling reader.

Book Box Guesses: December 2021

It’s no secret that I’m a book box lover. Part of the fun is trying to guess the upcoming month’s books (even if I don’t subscribe). Here’s a round up of what I think will be in the upcoming month’s boxes. I’ll update this post as new themes are revealed. These posts are typically scheduled around the 15th of each month.

If you’d like to play along, drop your guesses in the comments and I’ll add them to the post! If you think I’m wrong, please leave a comment as to which book is a better fit.

Let me know if I’m missing a box you think should be added to the list.

If you work for one of the boxes below and would like to offer a discount code to my readers or a referral link, email me and I’d be happy to add it to the post. I’m open to discussing other types of partnerships as well.

I STRONGLY urge you to research a box before buying or subscribing. There’s been some shady behavior and you don’t want to get caught up in it.

Great Audiobook Narrators

Audiobook fans know that a narrator can make or break a book. I’ve even been known to pick up an audiobook simply because of the narrator. Here are some recommendations of audiobook narrators that I enjoy plus one of their stories that I enjoyed.
