Today I’m sharing a review for something slightly different. Like most book bloggers I have numerous dates to post reviews, guest posts, blog tours, and my book of the month, the list is endless 🙈.

I save all my dates to my IPad planner but there’s a small part of me that’s petrified that for some unknown reason my IPad planner will disappear, what would I do then? How could I possibly remember what dates I had scheduled in? (some dates are scheduled months in advance). So I have been looking for a planner that fits all my requirements for months, and finally I think I’ve found the perfect thing the Bibliophile 2020 12-Month Planner. 

The first thing that attracted me to this one is the cover, I love the beautifully illustrated book stacks by Jane Mount, each month features different book titles. There are a 176 pages in total in this planner, and the size is as follows….

  • Height: 25mm
  • Width: 213mm
  • Length: 165mm

Each month features a ‘books to read page’, there’s plenty of room for mine, but I’m sure there are some bloggers who would prefer more space due to the amount of books they read.

Each month has plenty of room to add bookish dates, as there’s two pages per week, plus room at the end of the week to add extras. Another thing I adore about this planner are the little book related sketches of literary objects, and famous authors.

I was really surprised by the quality of this product the pages are a good quality paper, not at all flimsy. The cover is also very sturdy and robust.

There’s also plenty of pages for notes at the front which is super handy, I shall probably use mine to list the books I read this  year and perhaps a sentence or two about the book.

This deluxe planner features a handy side pocket and ribbon page marker, as well as notable dates in literary history.

For £8.49p (which includes free delivery) I think the Bibliophile 2020 12-Month Planner is a bargain, it’s perfect for book bloggers, and book worms alike.

Today I’m thrilled to be sharing my thoughts on The Crime & Mystery monthly book subscription box for November from https://mychroniclebookbox.com/ not only that but followers of my blog can get a 10% discount on their first box (details can be found further down this post). The Crime & Mystery monthly book subscription box, has everything you love about a quarterly book subscription box, but monthly!

**Please note I have not received payment for reviewing this book subscription, but I did receive a box in return for a honest and unbiased review**

I must admit I have been eagerly awaiting this box, I couldn’t wait to see what founder Louise of My Chronicle Book Box  had come up with. When it arrived it felt like Christmas, as you are never sure what lies inside these beautifully packed parcels.

Once again I was amazed at the amount of thought that had gone into this box, each gift has been carefully selected and fits the theme of the book. I’m sure you are eager to see what lies inside so without further ado, here we go……..E007457E-B714-4995-B395-00056F3C3EC0

First up……..

As with the previous box, it comes with a welcome letter and this month’s theme is Cheating. Lying. Murder?  I loved the print with the book quote, which I’m going to frame and put on my bookshelves. There’s a Q&A with author Nicci French. There’s also a sample of Tidelands by Philippa Gregory.

 

Then there were the bookish themed gifts……

  • A handmade Liquid soap called partners in crime, which smells Devine, it’s a blend of  pink grapefruit and Neroli.
  • A cruelty free bath soufflé scented with lavender and fennel seed, I love a soak in the bath so this product is perfect.
  • A decorative key which I’m going to use as a book mark as it’s got a lovely little tag with a quote on it.

And if that wasn’t enough you also get a hardback signed copy of The Lying Room by Nicci French. I have never read a book by this author (I know it’s shocking!), but this books been on my ‘wishlist’ ever since I read the book description so I can’t wait to read this one.

 

I think these boxes are worth every penny, when you consider you get a signed book and other book related gifts. The books are beautifully wrapped,  there’s so much thought put into these boxes, I really am impressed. Not only do you get fantastic value for a monthly subscription fee of £25, UK delivery is also now FREE!

I’m not sure I could justify buying them every month  though, as I buy a lot and I mean a LOT of books each month, but I would definitely buy the odd one and if I was looking for a book related gift for a bookworm this would definitely be my first choice. These are the perfect gift for me (hint! hint! family and friends 😂🙈) and anyone who enjoys reading crime and mystery books.
