Crime on the Pages is a montly book box subscription service thought up by a fan of crime ficiton who wanted to share the love of this genre, books and bookish wonders.  

What’s so great about a monthly book box?  The surprise of the wonders within of course!  July 2016 saw the first boxes sent out to subscribers, and as an extra thank you to the recipients there were two books instead of one.  

With a dedicated Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram it’s possible to get a sneak preview of the wonderous items the lucky subscribers received.  They also have a website where you can make your purchase of a subscription or a one off purchase – and an added bonus just now if you use the voucher code CRIMEBOX5 at the checkout you will receive a 5% discount on your first order.  Unfortunately at the moment, this service is only available in the UK. 

The innocent white box filled with wonders
Listing of contents

Impressively, for your subscription fee of £19.99 you are throughly spoiled.  

Even if you remove one of the books from the list (as one was a one off special gift for the first box), this is a fantastic selection of items.  The notebook, the candle and the confetti are lovely little extras and all have been sourced from wonderful websites that I could quite easily spend a fortune on – friends and family should expect book related gifts for the coming years.  
With the candle being made especially for the boxes, you should get some idea about the work and thought that has gone into this.  Each item was carefully wrapped to ensure it arrived safely at its destination which also made it like lots of birthday presents, so many things to unwrap and marvel at. 

Top it off with the ultimate personal touch, a hand written note thanking each person for their support.  You really do feel like your contribution to this matters, you feel as though your subscription is appreciated and you’re more than just a number on a list. 

The only thing missing from this image is the candle

I cannot wait to see what comes in next month’s box, what books will be picked and what wonderful bookish things will be hidden in the box.
