Not only am I a romance junkie, I am a subscription box junkie, and I have discovered not one, but two literary subscription boxes aimed at black women (although not limited to black women) who love to read. And not just romance!
Launched just this month, Red Blk Grl is a monthly curated box featuring works of contemporary young adult fiction written by black authors and incorporated items that match themes within the book that promote a healthy sense of self and well-being. Subscriptions start at $34.95 and look at what you get!
The other subscription box I discovered (and on Instagram, no less) is Noir Reads.
Noir Reads is simple and easy way to read Black literature to develop or deepen your understanding of Black culture & the Black experience by introducing readers to writers of the Diaspora and engaging in dynamic discussions with a growing private online community.
Subscription boxes, starting at $34.99, include 2-3 curated books & an item mirroring the monthly theme. Subscribers also receive a complimentary reading guide & syllabus for additional related material.
Two very different boxes to say the least. One for your carefree side and the other for your conscious side. I highly encourage you to check them both out and consider subscribing to one or both. I’m in deliberations now myself. It’s just a matter of deciding which current subscription box to let go to make room for one of these
