Update: March 2019. I am no longer a rep for Capsule Books, but I still love this company and what they represent.
I feel so incredibly honored to have been chosen as one of the spring 2018 reps for Capsule Books. Those of you who know me, know how I love curating capsule wardrobes, so naturally a curated book subscription box is right up my alley. For those of you unfamiliar with this company, Capsule Books is an independent book subscription box company run by a lovely woman named Natasha. Each season Natasha curates three different boxes based on themes. This spring the three capsules were inspired by colors and the moods these colors evoke. There was a red romance capsule, a blue nostalgia capsule, and the one I chose which was a yellow destiny capsule. This photo is of the three books that were in my destiny capsule.
Before you decide which capsule to purchase, Natasha reveals one book from each capsule on her Instagram page @capsulebooks. This book reveal is crucial because it will give you a feel for the sort of books that will be included in each capsule. When I chose the destiny capsule the only book I knew would be included was Maya Angelou’s “Letter to My Daughter.” I’ve been wanting to read this, so I knew the Destiny Capsule was for me. As it turned out there was a book included in the capsule that I had already read, but as it was one of my favorite books from high school (Siddhartha) and I haven’t read it since, I was glad it was included. Once one of the books has been revealed the other two books aren’t revealed until the end of the season, in case you haven’t ordered your capsule and want the books to remain a surprise. I love the mystery of it!
The capsule arrived packaged in a nice cardboard box. There was a gorgeous bookmark from @merakinshop on Instagram in each of Capsule Books spring boxes. Here’s a photo of mine. I don’t collect a lot of bookish goodies, so I really appreciate that this book subscription box focuses on the books rather than a lot of other products. Even more than how expertly Natasha curates each box, I appreciated the handwritten letter that she includes in every single box. The letter explains why each of the books were chosen and suggests a particular reading order. I loved the personal touch. If this weren’t reason alone to support Capsule Books, Natasha also included stationery and a stamped envelope in every capsule to encourage the art of writing letters. As an avid letter writer, I definitely appreciated the inclusion of stationery.
I loved my experience with Capsule Books and will definitely order another in the future. The summer capsules are in the works now and Natasha has just revealed one book from each of the three summer capsules. You can still order the spring capsules until May 31! If you wish to snag one of these before they are gone you can use my rep code CAIT15 for a 15% discount. (update: I am no longer a rep for Capsule Books, but you can still get a discount by checking the current reps on the Instagram page).
