πŸ“¦ Unboxing My January Book Box from the Teatime Bookshop β˜•

Hello my fellow bookworms, today I want to share with you the goodies I unboxed from my latest vintage book box from the Teatime Bookshop, that arrived just last week.

I received two sachets of deluxe cocoa; a packet of raspberry & white chocolate shortbread biscuits, a promotional bookmark and postcard; and a copy of the vintage historical-romance, Love’s Avenging Heart by Patricia Matthews, which was published in 1976.

Goodreads description:

Her fiery red hair, voluptuous body, and impudently beautiful face would attract men — men of wealth, men of nothing but strength and lust — and she would have to learn to survive amidst their passions and furies. After all, she was only a wench, a body to be owned, used or bartered. But Hannah would do more than survive, she would win. She would overcome the sadistic beatings, the rapes, the treachery, the crushing humiliation of her circumstances.

This is both an author and book I have never heard of! And straight off the bat this does sound a little too saucy for my usual reading fare, however historical-fiction is one of my favourite genres so I will certainly be giving it a go… even if I fear it might make me blush! 😳

If you are interested, the Teatime Bookshop is a wonderful online bookshop that offers subscription book boxes, that help to recycle books, plant trees and bring a little joy each month. I am pleased with my sixth box, although some of you eagle-eyed reader may have noticed I have skipped my fifth box! Well, sadly, that is because it is missing! The Teatime Bookshop are looking into as it would seem the fault lies with the courier (good old Royal Mail as per usual)!

What do you think of what I got? Have you ever heard of this book or author? Are you signed up for any book boxes? Please let me know in the comments below.

  1. That sounds like a lovely box. And, nothing wrong with a little saucy historical fiction – it probably won’t be too racy – maybe akin to Moll Flanders.

  2. Perhaps the book won’t be too racy. In 1976, things were often just alluded to rather than described in detail. πŸ˜‰ (hopefully!)

  3. Ive had a few subscription boxes given to me as presents. Unfortunately I can’t say the experience was great. The books were mostly ones that didn’t interest me so all I was left with was the add ons of biscuits, bookmarks etc. One day I’ll find a subscription service that suits me better

    1. I’m sorry you have been disappointed with the few subscriptions boxes you have received as gifts, Karen, but I hope you will find one to suit you in the future. πŸ€žπŸ™‚
