Journal Entry 1 by Nataliec7 from West Molesey, Surrey United Kingdom on Tuesday, July 11, 2017

This book has not been rated.

This is a small bookbox containing a selection of books. The box will start with a minimum of 5 books or how many I can fit in under 2kg! They will be of different genres and authors. They will all be covered somehow and a REVIEW from the front or back of the book written or taped to the outside of the package.

For example, I am currently reading The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. On the front cover, it is described/reviewed as:

'Haunting, magical and full of surprises'

and on the back cover as

'Mesmerising and Suspenseful.... Unmissable'

When its your turn, you choose books based on the review and add your own wrapped books to the box with the review on the outside. Please post here and let other people know what your review and book was. Some books have several reviews on it. Feel free to pick which ever you think describes the book best or is the most interesting.

You then post the box on to the next person and it goes on until the box returns to me. Please try to move the box within a month please. This should be enough time to make your choices and get the box back on its way.

As with normal bookbox's, please put books in that are in good condition. You can wrap the book in whatever you have to hand - Spare wrapping paper, newspaper, brown paper or whatever you have to hand as long as the books are obscured. Write or tape your chosen review of the book to the outside of the book and the PM the next person for their address. Please keep at least 5 books in the box to allow other people to have a good selection to choose from. Fiction only please but any genre.

And lastly enjoy! Its nice not to judge a book by its cover!

The box is safely with me,it may take me a week or so to deal with this as I'm having dental surgery today and I'm also in the middle or an RA flare up, I will sort it out as soon as I can.

Edit 15/08/17

I'm so sorry I've just realized that I sent this to the next person on the list without doing a JE-Bad Bookcrosser!!!!
I took out two books but I can't remember what was written on the front of each, they are.
The Rain Before it Falls by Jonathan Coe
The Vintage Teacup Club by Vanessa Green

Dropping off to my local Hermes Parcel Shop - it weighted a little bit of 2kg. It is worth it though!

Received today, been looking forward to this arriving.

Well, I don't believe this - I've opened and (re-stuck ) three of these books! Two I have read already and the third I had circulated myself in another bookbox. Very unusual but possibly shows how little I go by reviews when choosing a book to read. However, despite all that, I've chosen one from an author I've known about for a while but just never got around to reading.

Now for the balancing act of which books plus wrapping will make up the package to go through the post returning to the originator of this bookbox.

Well, a success all round for sure. The bookbox has made it home.
I will attempt to organise another round for any interested parties. Thanks everyone for participating! :)

1st Review: Plunges us into or worst nightmare- Somebody knows our darkest secret and they're sharing it. Turns out to be Disclaimer by Renee Knight which looks like my ideal read.

2nd Review: A marvel... a novel which deals with a huge subject with originality. This is Property by Valerie Martin. Another good one.

3rd Review: A rattling good yarn, the sort that chills the mind as well as the spine. This is The Woman in Black by Susan Hill.

The rest will remain wrapped for another round.
