For the past three months I have had the privilege of partnering with the fabulous ladies of the Bad People Book Club to share in their monthly mailings. I’m so excited to tell you all about the unique experience you will get if you choose to subscribe. Every month you will receive a box filled with the ingredients (sans alcohol, however) to craft a tailor-made cocktail that is perfectly paired with that month’s featured book. As a result, you have a handcrafted and unique reading experience. Their mission goes beyond books and a buzz, however—each selected book focuses on women writers, own voices and the stories of persons of color and other marginalized communities. In focusing on these literary works they are doing their part to uplift those stories that society often overlooks which is an admirable thing, indeed. Read on to see which books and bespoke cocktails were featured in their summer mailings.
The June Bad People box included and paperback copy of Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi which you can read the synopsis for here:
The August box featured a hardcover copy of Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie and you can read the synopsis below:
The reading of a book shouldn’t end when the final page in turned and Bad People Book Club believes that as well. They have gone beyond the confines of the book spine and cardboard shipping box to bring the conversation to you via their podcast, Bad People Book Club. Each month they discuss the book, pose thought-provoking questions and share meaningful quotes. If podcasts aren’t your thing you can also join them on their blog where they post discussion questions and bad people bookish tidbits for your enjoyment.
Head to their website to subscribe. Subscriptions run at $34.99 for a one-time mailing, $124.99 for a year long subscription with a box mailed each quarter and $349.99 for an entire year of monthly boxes. You can use the coupon code READV10 for 10% off your first box. Cheers!
Complimentary boxes were provided by Bad People Book Club in exchange for an honest review.
