I’m so excited to have received my third and final book from The Willoughby Book Club!
This is a book subscription service here in the UK where you buy 3, 6 or 12 months’ worth of books in advance and they send you a book they think you’ll like each month.
My first month, I received I Was Here by Gayle Foreman and my second month, I received More Than This by Patrick Ness – which I still haven’t read.
I was very excited all day yesterday because I had tickets to see Sweeney Todd at one of my local theatres. The show was great and gory and I loved it – but little did I know, I had something bookish waiting for me when I got home!
In February, I ordered a 3 months’ book subscription for myself. (I’d kind of forgotten all about it…) There aren’t many book subscriptions available in the UK, so I chose The Willoughby Book Club, which seemed the most well-rounded. (I considered the vintage book and tea subscription, but decided against it because I didn’t only want classic books. Also, I don’t like tea.)
Subscription boxes are mystery boxes posted to your door every month. You might have heard of Glossybox or Birchbox, which are a similar thing in the beauty world. What happens is, you pay in advance for a selection of boxes – usually 3, 6 or 12 months’ worth – and a box tailored to your likes and dislikes is posted to you each month, but you don’t know what book you’re going to receive, which makes it all the more fun!
