This was only my second month with Novel Tea Club, but I just love the overall vibe of this box. To me it seems very easy-going. There aren’t a million and one products to take your attention away from their monthly pick. And you don’t wind up with a bunch of useless stuff that sits in your bookish drawer until their day comes for a photo appearance–I know I’m not alone in this y’all. I have a drawer filled to the rim with the most useless bullshit. Game of Thrones coasters–lol what am I ever going to do with Game of Thrones coasters?
So here’s the quick rundown: Novel Tea Club is a monthly book subscription box. There are three genres to choose from: YA, romance, and fantasy. I chose YA, though part of me wants to switch to romance since I got a duplicate book this month. Each box comes with 2-3 bookish products, a tea or coffee product (hence novel TEA club), and some form of an edible something (no, not marijuana).
I love this box and I love the people who run it. I’ve chatted with them a couple times on Instagram, and they are kind and respectful and uber attentive to how they can better their box. I so appreciate companies who pay attention.
In this month’s crate we got:
- Tantalizing Tea-Sugar Plum Fairy
(The name though). Berry flavored black tea with cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom. It smells amazing. I think I put too much in my first batch because it tasted like I was drinking straight ground up grass. Don’t try that at home.
- Snowflake Coasters
- The Truffle Cottage Nightmare before Christmas Zero peppermint bark
I love Zero. That’s why I refuse to eat him. Also step up from last time when my chocolate came seriously mangled in the mail. I tell you, this company improves. Who doesn’t want to be apart of a company that’s constantly approving.
Side note–just checked out The Truffle Cottage website and they have every character and movie one could imagine made out of chocolate, so be sure to hit that up.
- Time for another Adventure sticker by Quotation Park
Slapped this sucker on the front of my new planner.

Betrothed since childhood to the prince of Mynaria, Princess Dennaleia has always known what her future holds. Her marriage will seal the alliance between Mynaria and her homeland, protecting her people from other hostile kingdoms. But Denna has a secret. She possesses an Affinity for fire—a dangerous gift for the future queen of a land where magic is forbidden.
Now Denna has to learn the ways of her new kingdom while trying to hide her growing magic. To make matters worse, she must learn to ride Mynaria’s formidable warhorses before her coronation—and her teacher is the person who intimidates her most, the prickly and unconventional Princess Amaranthine, sister of her betrothed.
When a shocking assassination leaves the kingdom reeling, Mare and Denna reluctantly join forces to search for the culprit. As the two work together, they discover there is more to one another than they thought—and soon their friendship is threatening to blossom into something more.
But with dangerous conflict brewing that makes the alliance more important than ever, acting on their feelings could be deadly. Forced to choose between their duty and their hearts, Mare and Denna must find a way to save their kingdoms—and each other.
