May The Bookworm Box Review

I love finding new subscription boxes, and finding new book boxes is one of my all time favorite things. I love to read and am always looking for new great books. The Bookworm Box is a great subscription that not only sends you signed books and fun merch, they donate 100% of their profits to charity, too!

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

First, I love the cute little bookworm logo. Second, The Bookworm Box sends two autographed books, a bookworm item, and fun book swag each month for $39.99 per month. They are currently sold out, but new spots open up every month and sell out quickly, so if you're interested in subscribing I recommend following them on social media (links at the end of the post) to see when spots open up.

The Bookworm Box is in the process of obtaining their 501c3 charity status. They accept donations of books to include in the boxes and also purchase them from authors to share with subscribers. 100% of their profits after overhead costs are donated to various charities, and has of December 31, 2016 they've donated approximately $750,000 to charity! You can see a list of all of the charities that they've donated to on their website.

I was super excited to break into The Bookworm Box! I had no idea what to expect, other than the two books of course, and I was pleasantly surprised by all of the goodies inside. I was surprised how heavy the box was, which only added to the intrigue.

Aside from the two autographed books, this month's box had six extra items, all branded with The Bookworm Box's logo. There were also a few inserts that could be used as bookmarks.

I think it's really fun that the books are autographed by their authors! My box had two romance novels, which is not my preferred genre, but I will share these with people who I know will enjoy reading them.

Tapping the Billionaire by Max Monroe: So Max Monroe is actually a pseudonym for a secret duo of romance writers who are New York Times bestsellers under this name. This book is the first in the "Billionaire Bad Boys" series; here's the blurb from Amazon:
Georgia Cummings has zero luck with dating, and the era of the internet is not her friend. No matter how fast she runs, how many corners she turns, she can’t find her way out of this weird, alternate universe where men think d*ck pics are a replacement for small talk and getting to know a girl. One more crotch selfie and she might write men off for good…

But why can’t she stop fantasizing about him?

Kline Brooks is the quintessential billionaire bad boy—dark, styled, short hair, muscles for days, and a panty-dropping smile. Except—he isn’t.

As his employee, he won’t touch her with a ten foot pole. But she won’t touch him either.

Too bad their hormones missed the memo.

Emerge by S. E. Hall: This book is also the first in a series, the "Evolve" series. Here's the blurb:
"You never have to be without me, Laney, never." He everything I ever knew, trusted, wanted...I am, in fact, without him. On my own and out of my shell, I learn new things about life, friendship and...myself. Like what you've always known may not be what you've always wanted.

Dane Kendrick awakened things within me that I never knew existed, unraveling and uncovering the real Laney Jo Walker. I'm a new is my story.

This box would be a good value with the two autographed books alone, but The Bookworm Box does a great job of sending extra bookish goodies, too! The bookworm magnet is too cute and is already on my fridge. The pen is nice quality (who doesn't love a good pen?) and the notepad with sticky tabs is an essential for any reader.

There was also a nail kit with The Bookworm Box logo on it which is not something I would expect from a book box but it's a nice item nonetheless. I'm going to take this to work and leave it at my desk for emergency hangnail removal. The pouch is clear and has a long string attached, so I'm assuming you can wear this around your neck and store your phone or other small items inside of it. It's actually a great idea for travel when you want to keep something close to you, maybe under a jacket or something like that.

The last item is a big canvas cloth. I think it's a table cloth? It could definitely be used as one, or as a blanket for a picnic. There is no info card describing the items and I couldn't find it on their website, but that's what I would use it for.
Bottom Line: I loved the May box from The Bookworm Box! Even though the books weren't quite my style I think it's amazing that they send autographed books and donate their profits to charity. The extra goodies were a lot of fun and high quality, too.
