Book Lovers: Guess What’s in the Sweet Reads Box for August

She’s baaaaack! Yes, I’m back to share what goodies I received in the Sweet Reads Box August box

Check out my previous post to learn more about my collaboration with Sweet Reads Box and the Sweet Reads Box book subscription service for monthly books and themed goodies (from mostly Canadian brands) that tie into the novel.

When I open the Sweet Reads Box, the first thing I see is a large postcard with a photo of the Tower Bridge, London, UK. I immediately think, “I was there!” That was on my last visit to London back in 2015! I love the city and cannot wait to go back. 

So, this month’s box is off to a good start. The London connect is already giving me some good vibes. I read quote on the postcard, “In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or step back into safety.” I’m now intrigued. What’s in the box? And What’s the featured novel about?

Well, I’ve had a chance to look inside and can report back on all the goodies that were in the August box. It was a surprise, and I must say, I’m really looking forward to reading the book and sampling the products!

What surprises are in the August Sweet Reads Box?

The Book: Ghosts by Dolly Alderton

Funny, tender and eminently, movingly relatable, Ghosts is a whip-smart tale of relationships and modern life.” – Penguin Random House

This is a romantic comedy about writer Nina Dean who is single and living her best life in London, England. Then while online dating, she meets Max, a good-looking Accountant and they seem to be having a great time together until he ghosts her. In addition to the boy drama, Nina has family drama and work drama to contend with – her dad’s worsening Alzheimer’s and her mother’s denial of the situation and a new book that’s not making her boss happy. Nina has a lot going on in her life. Will she be alright?
