What’s in it? A recently released novel as well as 3 related items and a note from the curator.

Novel Editions is a Canadian subscription box for book lovers. Each month, Novel Editions sends a carefully curated box of bookish items. Expect to receive a fiction novel released in the last 6 months, 3-4 items that are relevant to the book, plus a note from the curator explaining why she chose the book. The founder, Alex, spends a great deal of time each month curating the perfect box to bring joy to subscribers. I've been subscribed since the beginning and I've received every box except one. I've never been disappointed!

The theme for July is Whimsy.

Alex describes this month's book pick as the perfect beach/cottage/patio reach. The Whimsy theme is inspired by the quirky female lead and the "spontaneity and joy of summer". The accompanying items were chosen for the season.

First look at all the items, excavated from the pink crinkle paper.

Product card

New Moon Tea Co. Perfect Pitcher Iced Tea Packs (($4.99 x 2)
This tea company is based in BC. I've received quite a few of their hot teas in various boxes, but never iced tea. I can't wait to give these a try. "Beat the Heat" is a blend of Hibiscus, Orange Peel, Lemon grass and Coconut Palm Sugar. "Beach Day" is an organic herbal blend of Green Tea, Ginger, Dandelion, Lemon Peel, and Goji Berry. Each pack includes a muslin steeping bag. I've been wanting to try these so I'm thrilled to receive a couple packs.

The Gifty Room "Winging It" Makeup Bag ($10)
This cotton canvas pouch is so cute! Its a fun little pouch to stash all your must-have summer cosmetics.

Northern D'lights Pink Lemonade Lip Balm ($5)
This lip balm has a fresh lemon scent and is made from beeswax, organic cocoa butter, and shea butter. It's quite nice!

Ginko Supplies Washi Tape ($4)
Washi Tape is a must have item for every crafter. To learn more about this versatile decorative craft item, click here.

Now for the book of the month!

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman ($24.95)

No one's ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine.

Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she's thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding unnecessary human contact, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy.
But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen, the three rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. Ultimately, it is Raymond's big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repairing her own profoundly damaged one. And if she does, she'll learn that she, too, is capable of finding friendship—and even love—after all.
Smart, warm, uplifting, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is the story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes the only way to survive is to open your heart.

This book was released in May, 2017! Alex said she expected this to be a light "chick-lit" read, but it surprised her and exceeded her expectations. I have a summer getaway coming up so this will be going into my beach bag.

The July Novel Editions included a newly released novel, plus a selection of summery gift items. The approximate retail value of everything is around $54 Canadian. It's a fun collection of items and perfect for a summer box, especially the beach read!
