*The Willoughby Book Club pride themselves on offering a unique, personalised and memorable book subscription box service.
When I visited their website to find out more about the company, I fell in love with the whole concept.
The unique service can be a gift to yourself, or to a loved one.
There are a range of packages from 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions that cater for children, young adults and adults.
To make sure the book you receive each month is from a genre and in the style that you like, when you sign up you add personal details that include:
- The recipients name
- Your relationship with the person
- A personal message
- Top 3 book genres
- Tell us about your/their favourite authors and books
Providing this information then lets *The Willoughby Book Club literacy experts hand pick a book tailored to each individuals needs.
Each book is sent out on the 1st of each month, and is gift wrapped beautifully.
It is a wonderful way to become acquainted with books and new authors, and if you are worried about receiving duplicate copies of a book you may already have, don’t fret. An email is sent out each month letting you know what book you are receiving, and if you already have it in your stash, you can let them know and you can opt out.
The book I received this month was encased in a large brown sturdy box style envelope, and wrapped in royal blue tissue paper.
The added addition of the stickers, badge and bookmark was a thoughtful touch, and it reaffirmed for me just how lovely this subscription would be for the book lovers in my life.
The book I received was The Nightingale by Kristan Hannah described as a gripping and emotional read – set in World War 2.
I have recently become a big fan of World War 2 books, with The Tattooist of Auchwitz, Anne Franks Diary and The Ragged Edge of the Night being some of my favourite books of 2018.
The book I received was a perfect match, the guys over at The Willoughby Book Club had noted the genres I typically read and picked out a book they knew I would be interested in, and hopefully thoroughly enjoy.
I feel this is such a wonderful and unique Christmas or Birthday gift idea for the book lovers in your life.
