Book-lovers are no stranger to literary subscription boxes. There is one for every kind of taste and need, from young adult to literary fiction, and all of them are so beautifully packaged and full of bookish goodies that it's not surprising for one reader to sign up for multiple subs all at once... after all bookish mail is the best mail, right? But if you're looking for the first box to commit to, or just need another one to add to your growing list, Muse Monthly is one you should definitely have on your radar.
Muse Monthly was founded in 2015 under one founding principal: at the end of a long day, there is nothing better than curling up with a hot cup of tea and escaping into a good book (#relatable or what?) Each box features a new adult literary fiction book that the Muse Monthly team strives to make unique and something you might not have picked up for yourself. Importantly, they also focus in on debut writers and marginalized voices, which will not only bring some diversity to your reading list, but which is refreshingly different from the missions of many other book boxes. Its founder, 28 year-old CEO & Creative Director Christina Orlando, is also a Queer, non-binary Latinx woman, and takes pride in making sure her selections or her guest author-curator selections are as all-encompassing as possible.
And for all you tea lovers out there, the box also comes with a full-size container of tea to enjoy as you dive in to your new book. The teas (all from small, local tea makers) are always paired with the books by theme, and seek to create a special sensory experience as you read. Need more convincing? This should do the trick: the September box is guest curated by author Celeste Ng and will contain her highly anticipated new book Little Fires Everywhere, which hits shelves on September 12, 2017.
You can purchase a single box for $29.50 or sign up for a 3 month or 6 month subscription. Find out all the details at Muse Monthly and then get ready to fall in love with the coziest literary box ever.
