Hello everyone! Today I’d like to tell you about a fabulous new book subscription service that I’ve recently signed up to and I was so excited to receive my first box over the weekend. The company is called Book And A Brew and each month they send out a lovely hardback book and a box of tea to drink along with it. You pay £12.99/month for this service, boxes are shipped on the 15th of every month and for me, it’s an absolute bargain. The book itself is usually worth more than this without even taking into account the price of the box of tea! You can also buy a single box, perfect for a gift for the price of £14.99. Fantastic if you’re struggling for Christmas presents this time of the year, right?
There’s nothing more exciting than getting your first Book And A Brew box. You have no clue what you’re going to be getting and the anticipation of it all is indescribable. The packaging is lovely, the entire box covered with Book And A Brew stamps and sealed with their special sticker.
When you open up the box, everything is wrapped nicely in tissue paper, prolonging the anticipation even more but the first thing I saw was the tea, this month from Joe’s Tea Co, The Earl of Grey and described on a leaflet that also tells you about your book (which I didn’t read until I had opened my book so I didn’t spoil myself!):
“Dust down your best china and silver-up the spoons as you refresh your senses with this elegant blend. Black tea, finely fragranced with bergamot orange oil.”
And then time for the book – this month, the fantastic sounding The Glasgow Coma Scale by Neil D.A. Stewart. Here’s a little synopsis:
Lynne once dreamed of being an artist, but whose promotion to supervisor at a call-centre in Glasgow is sucking the soul out of her. When Lynne hands a fiver to a homeless man on the street in town one day, she is shocked to recognise Angus – her former art teacher on whom she once had a crush. What on earth could have reduced him to life on the street? In a gesture of uncharacteristic rashness, she invites him home.
So begins The Glasgow Coma Scale, this is a taut, ticklish, tender and truly unexpected story of art, of the city, of feelings, and about the redemptive power of an unconventional kind of love.
Yup, I’m happy! It’s a book I confess I’ve never heard of but sounds like something I would thoroughly enjoy. I can also confirm that the tea is absolutely delicious and I shall be enjoying that for the rest of the month. So, in conclusion, I am over the moon with my first Book And A Brew subscription box and I shall definitely be continuing my subscription for the forseeable future. Actually can’t wait to see what delights the December box will hold!
