Last month, I introduced you all to My Lit Box and essentially gushed about how much I love this book subscription box and how honored I was to promote it on my blog for a few months.
If you’ve never heard of My Lit Box, please visit their website to learn more about it. But in short, it’s a book subscription box that highlights writers of color and aims to take the guesswork out finding quality literature written by marginalized authors. The books will be delivered right at your doorstep along with bookish goodies.
My Lit Box is only available in the U.S. currently. Sorry, international friends!
December sees a return to Literary Fiction for My Lit Box. Last month, readers received Nicola Yoon’s The Sun Is Also A Star, which was the first YA release to be included and a pleasant surprise! This month, we see the latest release by acclaimed author Zadie Smith, who is famous for writing On Beauty, White Teeth, and NW. Zadie Smith will be in my city on January 10th, so I’m very excited to see her. I will do my best to read the book before then.
If you’re interested in subscribing to My Lit Box, be sure to use my promo code, RDB10 to get 10% off your first month’s subscription!
There are two buying options. Both are great deals:
- Book Only Plan for $17 – A total steal for new hardcover releases!
- Full Box Plan for $25 – includes 2-3 quality bookish goodies. Recommended for Bookstagrammers.
On to the unboxing!
What’s in the package:
Swing Time – by Zadie Smith
Ballet Slipper art print
Boy Meets World “TGIF” pin
LONDON notebook set from Hadron Epoch
Everything inside is perfect for Bookstagram.
I can already imagine the future photos I’ll take with these bookish goodies! The Ballet Slipper art print fits perfectly with Swing Time because the book is about two dancers. I’m not sure how the TGIF pin is associated with the book, but I love the style and color. Also, Friday are the best days, so this pin speaks to me. Finally, I think the London notebooks may be too cute to actually write in them. I will certainly be using them in future pictures and if I end up using them to take notes, I will do so very carefully and neatly.
Seriously, My Lit Box is a Bookstagrammer’s dream. You’ll always get the cutest, high quality goodies for your pictures. Many of the items are practical too, so you can totally use them outside of book photography.
Here it is: The Bookstagram shot!
Have you read Swing Time yet? What did you think?
The official blurb for Swing Time (From Goodreads):
Two brown girls dream of being dancers–but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about black bodies and black music, about what constitutes a tribe, or makes a person truly free. It’s a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten, either.
Dazzlingly energetic and deeply human, Swing Time is a story about friendship and music and stubborn roots, about how we are shaped by these things and how we can survive them. Moving from northwest London to West Africa, it is an exuberant dance to the music of time.
That’s all for December’s Box! If you like what you saw, subscribe!
