πŸ“¦ Unboxing 3 Vintage Book Boxes from the Teatime Bookshop

Hello my fellow bookworms, today I want to share with you the goodies I unboxed from not one, not two, but three vintage book boxes from the Teatime Bookshop!

For those of you wondering why three boxes, some of you might remember that I had a box go missing in December, well another didn’t arrive in March either so I contacted the Teatime Bookshop, who kindly sent me two replacement boxes and a bonus box to say sorry. All of which arrived together, safe and sound, last week! What a lovely surprise to come home, too!

As always, in each box, I received a delightful selection of sachets of hot chocolate; packets of biscuits; and promotional bookmarks and postcards, but, of course, it is the books I am sure you are most excited to hear about.

πŸ“• Elizabethan Lover by Barbara Cartland (1953) – A historical-romance set at sea with pirates, sounds right up my street, even if romance is not my usual reading choice. I have also never read anything by Cartland, who is one of the queens of romance, so this should be interesting experiment for me.

πŸ“• Joy and Josephine by Monica Dickens (1958) – A family drama about an orphan looking for her ‘real’ parents from the granddaughter of the celebrated Charles Dickens. Reviews are mixed for this one, however this is an author I have long wanted to read.

πŸ“• Sue Barton – Senior Nurse by Helen Doye Boylston (1937) – The second book that follows a young woman training to become a nurse, written by a former nurse herself. Shame it wasn’t the first book, but if I enjoy this I will just have to go hunting for the rest of the series.

So all in all I think a great haul of vintage books, which I am excited to start reading. 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.

Have you read these books or authors? Are you signed up for any book boxes? Please let me know in the comments below.

    1. Hey Trang πŸ‘‹ Thank you for stopping by and commenting! It is always lovely to hear from a new face and so pleased you find these vintage boxes cute. 😊

  1. How exciting to get three boxes all at once! I have read a different book by Monica Dickens (The Winds of Heaven), which I really enjoyed, so I would be interested to hear what Joy and Josephine is like.

    1. Helen, good to hear you really enjoyed another book by Monica Dickens. I look forward to trying my own first book by her and hopefully, it won’t be too long away. 😊

  2. How fun that they followed up with replacements, which all arrived at once! I’ve heard of Barbara Cartland novels all my life, but never read one. A bit like Harlequin Romances, I think. (which I’ve never read, either!) I hope you enjoy everything!
