Review: The Stationery Geekette Bookclub Box – September


*Disclaimer: This is a totally unbiased review of a product I purchased myself. I am in no way affiliated with Emma-Louise Smith or The Stationery Geekette

Well this month’s box has arrived and I’m as impressed with the packaging and contents as I was with the August box (check out my review here). As last month we have the little paper doily with the address on and some washi tape securing the box, which I think is a lovely touch.

This month’s theme was mystery and we had received a few spoilers on Emma’s social media outlets over the course of the month so those people (like myself) who have no patience can check out the book and check we haven’t already read it.


So this month, the book we received was The Lake House by Kate Morton and I’m really looking forward to getting started reading this, although I need to finish my current book first. As last month it was wrapped in a gorgeous purple patterned tissue paper and secured using a really cute book themed washi (which I own).

The other items in the box included:

  • A gorgeous Holmes candle from Meraki Candles. Its a lovely musky candle with sandalwood and amber undertones and it smells divine. I’m not a huge fan of overly floral scents so this is perfect for me.2016-10-05-11-40-37
  • A Uniball Signo Sakura 0.38 with a cute moustache clip. I love these pens and they write really well on all the paper I’ve tried so I’m really pleased to have received another one for my pen collection.


  • Finally we received some book review inserts from PlanwithHannah. To be honest, I’m a little torn about these as I already have a book journal that I keep in my TN so initially I was unsure if they would be used. They are also a little plain for my liking, however the quality of the paper is fantastic so I have decided to use them in my blog planner for making notes on book reviews for my blog.


This month’s note was handwritten which gave a slightly more personal touch and the challenges are back, only this month they are on the website. I will be trying extra hard this month to complete all the challenges in the hope that Team Cassiopeia can win this month. I’ve already downloaded mine and they are printed and in my planner.

Emma has knocked it out of the park again with this months box. I did wonder if we would end up with the same kinds of things with a different theme each month but I’m pleased to say that we haven’t.

If you are interested in purchasing next month’s psychological thriller themed box then head on over the the TSG: Bookclub Box group over on Facebook or check out TSG Bookclub on Etsy where the October box is now on sale (but only for a couple more days)

    The Lake House is great! Have you read anything else by Kate Morton? If not, I highly recommend all of her other novels.
