The Literary Book Club Review: Valentine’s Day 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.

The Literary Book Club also offers one time limited edition boxes from time to time, just like the Valentine’s Day box we will be taking a closer look at today.

Unboxing The Literary Book Club boxes are an experience – everything is carefully gift wrapped and so gorgeously presented. Even the box information card comes in it’s own envelope with a wax seal! Just like opening a very special piece of mail.

“*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!”

The Romantic Poets Chiltern Edition

“The literary world of the early nineteenth century was lit up by six of England’s greatest poets. Wordsworth, Coleridge and Blake were in the vanguard of the early Romantic movement that broke from the past, emphasizing the individual and personal, embracing imagination over reason. Romanticism’s second wave saw Byron, Shelley and Keats come to the fore, rebels who breathed new life into the movement that gave us some of the best loved poetry in English literature.”

Swag Bag

The swag bag contains bookmarks and stickers all designed according to the theme of the box. I think these stickers will be perfect for my journal.

8×10 Art Print

Gorgeous print with a quote from the book.

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, there is a rapture on the lonely shore.” – Lord Byron

While You Read: Strawberry Mule Cocktail Mix

Each box always includes a beverage or snack item for you to enjoy while reading. This box contains a mix for strawberry mule where you can add your own vodka, water, and ice to make your very own cocktail. I am so excited to try this!

Bonus Gift: Heart Hair Clip

There is also a bonus gift of the cutest little heart shaped hair clip. Not quite my style, but I can see using this as a bookmark.

Keats: Mint Chocolate Chip Truffles

Dark chocolate and mint – the best combination. Also, how adorable is the packaging that looks just like mint chocolate chip ice cream.

Coleridge: Blind Date with a Book

This is such a fun element of surprise. The book included is pre-owned and comes pre-wrapped from a small woman-owned business so everyone may be getting a different book. The hints on mine says military fiction, mystery, crime, and action, how exciting!

My book is The Forgotten by David Baldacci.

“Army Special Agent John Puller is the best there is. A combat veteran, Puller is the man the U.S. Army relies on to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. Now he has a new case – but this time, the crime is personal: His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida. A picture-perfect town on Florida’s Gulf Coast, Paradise thrives on the wealthy tourists and retirees drawn to its gorgeous weather and beaches. The local police have ruled his aunt’s death an unfortunate, tragic accident. But just before she died, she mailed a letter to Puller’s father, telling him that beneath its beautiful veneer, Paradise is not all it seems to be. What Puller finds convinces him that his aunt’s death was no accident… and that the palm trees and sandy beaches of Paradise may hide a conspiracy so shocking that some will go to unthinkable lengths to make sure the truth is never revealed.”

Wordsworth: Manicure Set

A little kit with all your essentials for a quick manicure. Perfect for traveling and so convenient.

Shelley: Literary Earrings

Aren’t these just the cutest? I can see myself wearing these often.

Byron: Spa Gift Set

A kit for your very own spa day. A nice hot bath and a good book are perfect for a day of self care.

Blake: Moonstone & Rose Gold Necklace DIY Kit

I am so excited for this! I have never tried making my own jewelry and can’t wait to try it out with this kit.

Final Thoughts

The Literary Book Club did not disappoint as usual. This is my favourite subscription to unbox, just because it is such an experience to unwrap all these gifts. It is like receiving a bunch of gifts all at once! The classic book featured is always gorgeous and this month’s book is no different with its beautiful gilded edges and thick glossy paper. The items included are so thoughtfully selected too. I loved everything, and my favourites are the earrings and necklace DIY kit. It is no wonder these boxes sell out so quickly!
