Me Time Unboxed: Sweet Reads Book Box

Thanks to Sweet Reads Box for sending me a complimentary book box to review. All opinions are my own.


Sweet Reads Book Box

Ahhhh those lazy days of summer! Whether you’re relaxing on the deck in the backyard, sunning at the beach or enjoying a long road trip, you are going to want a few good books to get you through the summer. The best way to ensure that “me time” is going to happen is to treat yourself with a book box subscription to kick off the summer months!

Sweet Reads Box is more than just a new book showing up at your door each month, though you are guaranteed that’s going to happen! But it’s truly me time in a box as it delivers, not only a best selling read, but a completely hand picked and carefully curated box full of goodies including a beverage and tasty treat to enjoy while you read, plus a few other themed surprises! 

Check out my June Sweet Reads Book Box Unboxing video for a quick overview, or keep reading!

What you can expect in each Sweet Reads Book Box:

  • A novel chosen from a top bestseller list.
  • A decorative spoiler card explaining the choice of novel and how your items connect.
  • A sweet treat.
  • A cozy beverage.
  • A couple of items connected to the novel’s story.

June Book Box - Sweet Reads Box


Perfectly set for the summer, the June novel selection for Sweet Reads Box is The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore by Canadian author Kim Fu.

A group of young girls descends on Camp Forevermore, a sleepaway camp in the Pacific Northwest, where their days are filled with swimming lessons, friendship bracelets and camp songs by the fire. Bursting with excitement and nervous energy, they set off on an overnight kayaking trip to a nearby island. But before the night is over, they find themselves stranded, with no adults to help them survive or guide them home.

The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore follows these five girls—Nita, Kayla, Isabel, Dina and Siobhan—through and beyond this fateful trip. We see the survivors through the successes and failures, loves and heartbreaks of their teen and adult years, and we come to understand how a tragedy can alter the lives it touches in innumerable ways. In diamond-sharp prose, Kim Fu gives us a portrait of friendship and of the families we build for ourselves—and the pasts we can’t escape.

June Book Box Contents


I’m in love with the whole outdoorsy/camping theme this month, it’s such a great way to kick off the summer! This month’s treat is an absolutely delicious Wholesome Yogi Snack Mix from Naked Snacks. What’s a good camping trip without a trusted trail mix? Filled with cashews, Almonds, cranberries and white chocolate chips this was the best trail mix I’ve ever had, I was hooked from the first handful!

The beverage was a fitting Campfire Cocoa from Gourmet du Village along with awesome Adventure Awaits mug to drink it in from Danica. Definitely my new favourite mug.


June Book Box Treats

Along with the snacks, this month’s book box included a Be Adventurous Notebook from Canadian company F as in Frank Papergoods Co. as well as Recycled Paper Pencils in a cute matchbook styled package from Kikkerland.

  1. These look great.

  2. Carole D says:

    I really like to month box and love reading!

  3. Julie F says:

    This is such a good idea!

  4. kathy downey says:

    This month’s box is amazing!

  5. I don’t care much for “sweet” reads although a friend of mine only likes that type. I do, however, LOVE the concept of a monthly theme book and the surprisingly relevant goodies that go with it. (I am absolutely going to look at your YouTube videos of the other boxes.)
    My friend doesn’t use the internet (or a computer) but I will print some screen shots so she gets the idea. I will also share it with one of our friends as a possible gift idea!

    • momvstheboys says:

      The books aren’t sweet, the word is in reference to the treats that come in each box. The books have been all sorts of interesting topics and styles.

      • Thanks. I realized that as soon as I read the review for Woman in the Window, which I have reserved at the library. So it is not suitable for that particular friend but will appeal to a wider group of my friends. I will post it on Facebook!

  6. By the way, I was a little concerned when I saw FU on the book cover. Your hand was covering KIM so I had no context!

  7. Lynda Cook says:

    This sounds like a great subscription for the book lover!

  8. HEIDI C. says:

    I would love the snacks and the hot chocolate mix to enjoy along with the book.

  9. Rosanne Robinson says:

    Love the variety of books and treats you get in these boxes!

  10. This is a very good box

  11. Elaine Buonsante says:

    It would be fun to look forward to a surprise read every month.
