Fruit Bowl Books #1*

8:58 am

* Thank you to Fruit Bowl Books for sending me one of their science-fiction and fantasy packages this month. I was under no obligation to post about what I received, but something this lovely needs to be shouted about! *

I've never tried a book subscription box before, and lord knows there's a lot of them floating around these days, but there was something about Fruit Bowl Books and their subscription services that drew me in. Maybe it was the fruit with googly eyes; I am pretty easily swayed by googly eyes.

Fruit Bowl Books send out their boxes every Tuesday, so you don't need to wait until the start or end of a month for everything to be shipped off to you! What you receive is completely tailored to you, rather than the same for everyone like other boxes. You can choose the genre you want to receive and an expert from their team (thank you Ben Melon for my wonderful sci-fi/fantasy book!) will pick you something based on the likes and dislikes you provide, as well as by looking at your Goodreads profile! Everything about this service feels personal and you can tell time has been put into making your delivery perfect for you.

As you can see above, in the parcel you receive a lot of information from the Fruit Bowl team about your subscription, a bookplate, and then your wonderful gifts. The book chosen for me this month, as I decided on the science-fiction and fantasy option, was Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb, which I've actually been wanting to read for years! Alongside the book I received a very fantasy-inspired metal bookmark, and a Ladybird Books postcard which now lives on my pinboard, waiting for the right occasion to send.

When signing up for Fruit Bowl Books, you can select from the following subscriptions:

  • Classic Fiction
  • Contemporary Fiction
  • Crime Fiction
  • Historical Fiction
  • Sci-Fi and Fantasy
  • Young Adult Fiction
  • or the 'Fruit Salad' subscription which could be anything!
All subscriptions start from £42 for three months, with the first month arriving first class and the following second, so you're off to a speedy start!

You can find out more about Fruit Bowl Books here, and stay tuned to find out what I receive from them in March!
