Sweet Reads Box Review August 2019

No matter what life stage you are at time for yourself seems to get lost in the everyday. Sweet Reads Box is your chance to sit down, relax and enjoy a great read, a decadent sweet and a carefully curated item that ties to your novel. They kindly sent us this box for review.

What did I do before I discovered Book Subscription Boxes? Oh, that’s right…..I didn’t read. Ha! It sounds bad, but it’s true. I really only started reading again when I received my first Book Subscription Box for Review a few years ago. I LOVE the idea of someone else picking out the book for me. It is way less stressful, and way more convenient. They do all the work of researching and selecting the book, and it gets delivered to my door. All I have to do is wait for it to arrive.

Here’s a peek at the items we received in the August Sweet Reads Box…..

Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane

We love family stories and this one is unlike any we’ve read. Kate and Peter’s love and how it changes over time is engaging and emotional. The connection between the two families runs deep and is marked by a devastating tragedy. We think you will enjoy this take of love, growth and redemption.

Full disclosure – I received this book in another subscription box and skipped right over it. But, when I saw that another book box owner felt it was good enough to include in their box, I figure it must be a good read and maybe I shouldn’t have been so quick to dismiss it the first time. I’m actually kind of glad that I received it again. I’m guilty of judging a book by its cover and don’t always give books the time and attention they deserve. I spent some time on Goodreads going through the reviews for this book and I’m happy to report that I have added it to my “TBR” pile.

Old Fashion Kettle Corn

The perfect snack for Goerge and Peter to watch the Mets, and for you to enjoy while reading.

They had me at popcorn. A quick way to my heart is via chocolate or popcorn. Both preferably, but this time I will settle for good ol’ kettle corn. This will be the perfect treat to enjoy while reading my new book.

Iced Coffee

Delicious iced coffee is easy to make with this fantastic coffee by our local coffee roaster. A summer coffee shop favorite, we imagined Anne drinking this while watching for Peter.

Oh….it just keeps getting better and better. I’ve been on a bit of an iced coffee kick as of late. Usually I’m not a fan, but right now it’s all I want to drink. Was Sweet Reads Box reading my mind??


A classic styled mug we envisioned Anne or Lena sipping their coffee from. Simple yet classic, much like the way they style their homes.

Oh my goodness……Sweet Reads Box is killing it with the August box. The curation is absolutely perfect (and we still have three more items to review). I’m am extremely picky when it comes to my coffee mugs and this one is absolutely perfect! I love everything about it. It’s not too small (very important), it’s neutral colors and the design is fun. I will definitely be using this……like ALL the time.


A beautiful journal to compliment the theme of love in this novel. Perfect for your coffee shop writings.

Another favorite item to receive and another win for Sweet Reads Box. I LOVE journals and LOVE receiving them in my subscription boxes. This one is simple and classy…..just the way I like it.

Book Nerd Pin

We have been a big fan of this Canadian Company since we met them a few years ago. We hope you love this enamel pin – perfect for showcasing your love of books on your favorite jacket, bag or hat.

So….I keep meaning my get myself a cute little book bag, preferably canvas, to carry my books around in. I like to keep my books with me at all times and figured I should get a bag specifically for that reason. And, I will of course need a cute pin to put on the bag…… and this pin is C.U.T.E!

PS – I am very familiar with Crafted Van. They use to have their own subscription box and I kind of wish they still did. They create the cutest pins, greeting cards, magnets and bookmarks.

Vinyl Sticker

We created this sticker for our subscribers to accent their laptop, phone or journal. We know you can identify with it’s wording.

I’m a sucker for stickers, but it you read my reviews on a regular basis you will already know that. Sometimes I don’t even end up using them, but I still love to receive them.

Sweet Reads Box Review August 2019 – Final Thoughts

Wow, wow, wow! I am 100% in love with the August Sweet Reads Box! First of all, they enticed me to take a second look at a book that I previously glazed past and I’m so glad they did. In addition to that, I feel like they curated the box specifically for me. I am in love with each and every item. All my favourites in one box – a book, new coffee mug, iced coffee, popcorn and a notebook. And it doesn’t stop there. I also have an adorable new pin for my book bag and a cute little sticker for my notebook. This is easily one of my favorite boxes from Sweet Reads Box to date!
