Cozy Reader Club November 2016 Review and TODAY ONLY Coupon

One of my favorite book boxes is Cozy Reader Club. They send women's fiction novels plus all sorts of excellent goodies. Useful ones, not things that get tossed in the junk drawer! It's not targeted towards the usual Young Adult book box aficianados li
ke most of them are which makes it perfect for a girl who just wants to curl up, be cozy and read a new hardbound book.

The Cost: $64.95/month plus shipping

What You Get: One newly released women's fiction novel, an artisan coffee, tea or hot chocolate, gourmet treats and beautiful handmade items.

Faithful by Alice Hoffman- Reading the second review on Amazon gave me the shivers. This is apparently an emotional read which is the best kind sometimes. I know I'm going to cry like a baby. I'll probably have to get up and walk away. But it's not something I can resist.  (spoiler alert) Two girls get in an accident. One walks away, one remains in a coma. This is the story of guilt and redemption.
Growing up on Long Island, Shelby Richmond is an ordinary girl until one night an extraordinary tragedy changes her fate. Her best friend’s future is destroyed in an accident, while Shelby walks away with the burden of guilt.

What happens when a life is turned inside out? When love is something so distant it may as well be a star in the sky? Faithful is the story of a survivor, filled with emotion—from dark suffering to true happiness—a moving portrait of a young woman finding her way in the modern world. A fan of Chinese food, dogs, bookstores, and men she should stay away from, Shelby has to fight her way back to her own future. In New York City she finds a circle of lost and found souls—including an angel who’s been watching over her ever since that fateful icy night.

Here is a character you will fall in love with, so believable and real and endearing, that she captures both the ache of loneliness and the joy of finding yourself at last. For anyone who’s ever been a hurt teenager, for every mother of a daughter who has lost her way, Faithful is a roadmap.

Value: $26 (cover) $16.87 (amazon)
Townshend's Tea Company Pumpkin Spice Chai- All the spices in your typical pumpkin pie are called upon here to recreate the same effect in liquid form. Cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, clove, nutmeg and black tea. A full-flavored brew and our most popular chai. Yes. Give me all that and I will be in heaven. I can never have enough tea!
Value: $8
Vermont Brownie Company Apple Blondie- Sooooo, you don't get a picture of the actual blondie because I ate it already. This thing is to die for!! Decadent, rich and oh-so-bad for you! It melts in your mouth and it's all the good things rolled in to one. Wow. It's probably a good thing there was only one.
Value: $4
Max Melody Knit Hat- I'm totally into hats now that my pixie cut is starting to grow into an awkward stage. This isn't my favorite style of hat (it's baggy at the back) but it's going to come in handy in Amsterdam over New Years! Yep, going!
Value: $35
Pumpernickel and Wry Vintage Silverware Spoon- Aw! Cute! Handstamped and lustrous, this is almost to pretty to use! I will, though. Made with vintage silverplate spoons, this has a gorgeous patina.
Value: $16

VERDICT: The only downside of this box is the cost. But really it always reaches it's value including shipping and then some, which is great for any book subscription. None of them are cheap but Cozy Reader Club rarely has things that I won't use. Other book boxes, I pay almost $40 and get the book and MAYBE one thing to keep. That doesn't happen with Cozy Reader Club.  This is made for the bookworms like me.

If you would like to sign up for Cozy Reader Club, you can do that here. Use code HOLIDAYS by end of day tonight and get 15% off for life! That's a great deal!
