I found a new book box that is awesome because 100% of the profit from it goes to charity! This box is dedicated to romance novels and empowering women through the box. It is called The Bookworm Box, and it was created by author Colleen Hoover. I hope you enjoy my review of their March 2017 box!
The Bookworm Box is a supporter of the “Smart Girls Read Romance” movement which empowers women who like to read romance. I am in love with this concept because I have often felt ashamed for reading romance novels! No one should be ashamed of what they read, and The Bookworm Box makes sure to support that notion.
Good deeds, great reads.

I received the March 2017 Bookworm Box to review, and I couldn’t wait to try it! I love how The Bookworm Box gives all of their funding to charity.
The Bookworm Box comes in an adorable purple box with the logo on the top! I love the worm in the logo.
Upon opening the box, you are greeted with a card that announces how much money was donated in February. I love how Colleen Hoover – the owner of the box – keeps the subscriber up to date on her charitable giving!
In my box, I received a note telling me that my box has been selected to receive a third book! I can never have enough books, so I was super excited about this. This was me when I saw this note:
Thank you, The Bookworm Box!
The box also came with a magnet with The Bookworm Box’s logo on it, as well as a bookmark and postcard advertising different authors and their books.
Another postcard featuring an author was featured. There is also a postcard advertising a movement to debunk the negative attitude about girls who read romance novels. As someone who is a huge fan of romance, I love this effort! No one should be ashamed of reading romance, and I like how The Bookworm Box promotes “Smart Girls Read Romance”!
The first bonus item included in the box is this pen with The Bookworm Box’s logo on it! I can always use a new pen, so this is a win for me.
These earplugs were also included. They are purple to match The Bookworm Box’s theme, and the box has the company’s name on it.
The first book I pulled out of the box is Off Sides by Sawyer Bennett! This is a sporty romance, and I love the cover.
Here is the synopsis:
“I’m not sure what possessed me to do it. Maybe it was the impossible expectations I faced, maybe it was my own self-loathing. But I just knew I needed something different to happen. I needed someone…something…to derail me from my current path. Otherwise, I would become lost…a hollowed out shell of a man. So I did it. I approached her, then I pursued her, then I made her mine. And my life was saved…”
Ryan Burnham is the privileged son of a U.S. Congressman and captain of his university’s hockey team. While he is on the verge of fulfilling his dreams to play in the NHL, his parents want him on a different course. One he is expected to accept for the sake of his family’s public image.
Forced to abandon her music career after the heart-breaking death of her parents, Danny Cross exists on the opposite side of the tracks from Ryan. She is struggling to make her own way, working two jobs, attending college part time and volunteering in a homeless shelter. She is on a mission to build her own success.
With a chance meeting, their vastly different worlds collide, causing each to evaluate whether they are truly on the correct path to self-fulfillment and happiness. Can their relationship survive? Particularly when others are against them every step of the way. A lot can happen in just ten short days…
**Note From Sawyer Bennett: This book is part of the Off Series but it can be read as a stand alone book. Nothing in the prior or subsequent books will diminish your understanding of this novel. This is a New Adult, Contemporary Romance.
This book is also signed, like every book in The Bookworm Box! I love signed books, so that is a big perk to this box.
The next book is Weightless by Kandi Steiner! This book is also signed, and it is an inspirational romance. The reviews for this book are very good, and I can’t wait to read it!
Here is the synopsis:
I remember the lights.
I remember I wanted to photograph them, the way the red and blue splashed across his cold, emotionless face. But I knew even if my feet could move from the place where they had cemented themselves to the ground and I could run for my camera, I wouldn’t be able to capture that moment.
I had trusted him, I had loved him, and even though my body had changed that summer, he’d made sure to help me hold on to who I was inside, regardless of how the exterior altered.
But then everything changed.
He stole my innocence. He scarred my heart. He took everything I thought I knew about my life and fast-pitched it out the window, shattering the glass that held my world together in the process.
I remember the lights.
The passionate, desperate, hot strikes of red. The harsh, cruel, icy bolts of blue.
They symbolized everything I endured that summer.
And everything I would never face again.
The last book is Burying Water by K.A. Tucker! This book is a suspenseful romance, and it is the bonus book that was included in my box.
Here is the synopsis:
The highly anticipated start of a new romantic suspense series from the beloved, USA Today bestselling author of Ten Tiny Breaths.
Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?
Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.
The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.
Final Thought: I adore The Bookworm Box! I love how they give to charity and stand by the “Smart Girls Read Romance” movement. The books that I received are all quality romances, and you can’t beat autographed books. I wish that the bonus items wouldn’t all have the box’s logo on them, but I understand that The Bookworm Box is trying to gain awareness. If you are a fan of quality romance, signed books, and charitable giving, then The Bookworm Box is the perfect choice!
