The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation.


Today I am reviewing a brand new Canadian book subscription box.  

Rebellion Book Box is the newest literary-themed subscription box based in Canada and supports female writers.

 Book boxes ship every two months and are paid in Canadian dollars They ship every second month and their prices are :

For one month option is CDN$44 for boxes shipped within Canada and CDN$48 for boxes shipped to the USA. Shipping is included.
For 6 month subscription, within Canada, is CDN$130 and CDN$140 for USA.
For  12 month subscription, within Canada, is CDN$252 and CDN$276 for USA

Each box will contain at least one novel written by a female author and 2-3 items from feminist-run stores and shops .

Here is what was in September's box :


This is the product card.  I love the fact that this product card is somewhat like a postcard.   I love that there is a good amount of details on the products .  I like that there is a trigger warning listed from the book on this card. Personally, I don't need trigger warnings but I know some people do 

Verdigris Leaf Necklace from www.etsy.com/ca/shop/HairandWit


Plantable Seed Paper tag/bookmark from https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/Davita



Anais Nin quote sticker http://www.redbubble.com/people/roamngnaturalst

Montreal Farine Five Roses art postcard


And the book for this month is Five Roses by Alice Zorn. If you want to read the synopsis of this book you can find it on Goodreads
If you love to read and are always looking for books by female authors, I think this is a great book box for you. I have not read the book that was in this month's box yet but I know I will soon because it does sound very interesting .

I find the price is decent for a book subscription box.  

They are very new so of course, the first box is not the best but as they grow they will be sending better things.  I would like to see maybe tea or coffee in a box in the future (those seem to be pretty popular in book boxes). 

All in all, I find for a first box, they have done very well.

I do recommend Rebellion Book box.

MY THOUGHTS

I admit I am extremely picky when it comes to comedy movies.  I never like those comedies that I like to call "stupid comedies". You know the ones where the characters are stupid?   

This is one of them but it wasn't so bad. The acting was ok and the story line was decent.  I did have a few laugh out loud moments but I really think my husband liked this movie more than I did because he did laugh more than I did and he said he did enjoy the movie but personally it wasn't the greatest comedy I have seen .

I know a lot of people who do enjoy this kind of  comedies but it is just not for me.

I give this movie 3 out of 5
