The Literary Book Club Review: Halloween Box 2022

The Literary Book Club is a quarterly book subscription box. Every quarter, they will send you a gorgeous collectible edition of a classic book, plus a selection of thoughtful gifts to make your experience magical. They kindly sent us this box to review.

Subscription Details

The Literary Book Club subscription costs $74.99 each quarter, plus $11.95 shipping to the US. International subscriptions are available via their Etsy store.

Each themed box contains a gorgeous collectible edition book, plus a selection of thoughtfully curated gifts to enhance your experience. Each gift will arrive wrapped and numbered with page numbers to open as you read. You can expect to receive a variety of useful lifestyle gifts, self care luxury products, items bibliophiles will adore, and other lovely surprises.

Joining the Literary Book Club Box will also get you exclusive access to their private book club Facebook group for subscribers, where you can discuss your experience of the classics with other literary fans. Inside the group, you’ll find great conversation, and bonuses like giveaways only for subscribers.

I am so excited for this box! Everything in it is beautifully packaged – the information card even comes in an envelope with a wax seal. They offer one time limited edition boxes from time to time, just like the Halloween box we will be unboxing today.

“Title is the gorgeous hardcover edition of Ghostly Tales: Spine-Chilling Stories of the Victorian Age featuring stories from Elizabeth Gaskell, Charles Dickens, and more.”

“Treat yourself this autumn season and experience the classics, with our Limited Edition Box!

Fall is the perfect season to curl up with a great classic book, and I’ve made these book boxes absolutely deluxe. Box has SEVEN wrapped gifts to open!!”

“*Limited edition one time boxes are separate from the subscription and must be ordered separately. Subscribers will not automatically receive this box, so snag it now if you want it! Make sure to use your exclusive subscriber discount code!”

Let’s take a closer look at everything in the box.

Book: Ghostly Tales

“This collection of tales will transport you to a time when staircases creaked in old manor houses, and a candle could be blown out by a gust of wind, or by a passing ghost. Penned by some of the greatest Victorian novelists and masters of the ghost story genre, these stories come alive alongside exquisitely eerie art in this special illustrated edition.”

Swag Bag

Inside each box is a swag bag containing stickers, bookmarks, and bookplates. The owl is actually quite adorable.

8×10 Art Print

A gorgeous art print themed according to the book. Perfect for framing!

While You Read

There is always a little gift included for you to enjoy while you read. This month we have a Bloody Mary cocktail mix – so fitting with the whole spooky theme.

They also included this little bonus gift of Line Markers. I love these! Having a baby means I am constantly interrupted mid-page. These are perfect to help me keep my place on the page.

Story One

After Story One we got to open this pack of Honey Lavender popcorn. Love a snack to go with a good book.

Story Two

After Story Two we got to open this taper candle holder. I think this makes for a nice decorative piece for my bookshelf.

Story Three

After Story Three we open up a pack of taper candles for the candle holder.

Story Four

Next we got to open this stunning custom made candle snuffer. Not something I would personally use, but I still think it is such a pretty item.

Story Five

After Story Five, we got to open this set of beeswax food wraps. To cut back on single use plastics, I love these to use in place of plastic wrap.

Story Six

After Story Six, we got to open this tube of orange blossom hand cream. I love the pretty artwork on the packaging. The scent on this cream is gorgeous as well.

Story Seven

Finally, we got to open this book – Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. So spooky and the perfect Halloween read.

Final Thoughts

I have been admiring the gorgeous photos of The Literary Book Club subscription on social media, and when offered the chance to review it, I couldn’t be more excited. This box lived up to all my expectations and more! Opening all the gifts is such fun, and I love how everything is selected to be so fitting to the theme. Love that we receive a good mix of items, snacks, drink, stationery, and home decor. It looks like these one time limited edition boxes do sell out pretty quickly (and I am not surprised because they are amazing), so jump on any upcoming releases right away if you want one!
