Sweet Reads Box – A Canadian subscription box for book lovers!

Thanks to Sweet Reads Box for sending me the September Sweet Reads Box for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own.


Do you ever get that kind of lost feeling after you’ve finished a good book? It’s bittersweet, I guess, but that feeling when you’ve really loved the characters and the story and you don’t want it to end and now you’re not quite sure how to move on without them. It always leaves me feeling a little bit lost, but I know the cure is to just jump right into a new book and discover new stories and characters you haven’t met before.

I did a lot of relaxing and reading over the Thanksgiving weekend, that’s what it’s for right? Last night I turned the last page on the book I was working my way through, now normally, I would be a little bit sad because it always seems to take me weeks to get to the library or book store to pick up something new, but I was actually kind of excited last night because I knew I had the September edition of the Sweet Reads Box waiting for me!

Sweet Reads Box - Canadian supscription box for book lovers

Here’s a low down on the September edition of Sweet Reads Box

Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips

I can’t wait to dive into this book, it looks like a captivating read about a mother protecting her son. It’s speaking to me already.

” An electrifying novel about the primal and unyielding bond between a mother and her son, and the lengths she’ll go to protect him.”

The zoo is nearly empty as Joan and her four-year-old son soak up the last few moments of playtime. They are happy, and the day has been close to perfect. But what Joan sees as she hustles her son toward the exit gate minutes before closing time sends her sprinting back into the zoo, her child in her arms. And for the next three hours—the entire scope of the novel—she keeps on running.
Joan’s intimate knowledge of her son and of the zoo itself—the hidden pathways and under-renovation exhibits, the best spots on the carousel and overstocked snack machines—is all that keeps them a step ahead of danger.

A masterful thrill ride and an exploration of motherhood itself—from its tender moments of grace to its savage power—Fierce Kingdom asks where the boundary is between our animal instinct to survive and our human duty to protect one another. For whom should a mother risk her life?

“A Mother’s Love” Summer Rose Tea from Tea Gram, plus the cutest elephant tea steeper. The info card that comes with the box tells me that the elephant exhibit at the zoo is an important feature in the novel, so both sound very fitting to the story.
