Go Indie Now Book Box (July Unboxing)
I’ve never been really into subscription boxes. I mean, they look great, but they tend to be expensive, and I’d rather spend the money just buying what I want. Cheap make-up sample bags were nice for a while, but even that got old and too expensive to be a regular thing.
Once in a while I like to treat myself and try something new, and when I saw the Go Indie Now book box on Instagram, it looked like a good option. Indie books, handmade stuff, and a multi-sensory reading experience? Definitely worth a second look. So I went ahead and ordered when a box theme came up that I really liked the look of.
So yeah, I skipped the Historical genre box and waited for fairy tales.
Here’s the unboxing video. I was really happy with this box. Based on this one experience, I’d recommend it for people who love indie/handmade stuff and getting creative care packages in the mail. If you like polished and mass-produced, this may not be the box for you; while there are professional-looking materials in here and the products and books are great quality, the box definitely has a personal feel with hand-written notes in cute, quick handwriting from the person who puts the box together. I’d say this one overall looks more professional than the pictures I saw of earlier boxes, but it still has that personal feel.
Getting two books/bibliotherapy sessions was a really nice treat, especially since I got one in a preferred genre and one that’s a bit of a stretch for me. And the fact that they’re carefully curated makes me feel confident that I’ll get a good reading experience.

Note: Yes, I paid for my own box and shipping. No, I did not receive anything in exchange for this unboxing/review, and my books are not scheduled to appear in the box. I just like indie books and authors and want to share. 🙂
“Pick up all your floor bags, y’ain’t livin’ in Southeast Asia”
Fridays seem like a good day to share links to things that make me happy. I don’t know why. Maybe because I wasn’t planning on posting anything on Fridays (or Wednesdays, for that matter).
Have you watched “Bad Lip Readings” on YouTube? If you have, you either think that they’re as funny as I do (as in literally falling down on the kitchen floor with tears running down my face the first time I watched them), or you think they’re stupid and I’m a moron. I’m fine either way. If you haven’t seen them, go now. Do it. Thank me later.
The Twilight ones are my favourites, and they’re hilarious even if you haven’t seen the movies (like me). This is the first one:
“Eye of the Sparrow” was the first one I ever saw, also worth a look, and the one they did on The Hunger Games is also funny (if not Twilight-level funny). Look for the NFL, too- hysterical.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
