And The Story Begins October Unboxing (2016)


Hey guys! I’m here to do my first subscription box unboxing. This one is for the October 2016 And the Story Begins subscription box that I ordered. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised with the books I received because both books are ones I would buy myself and read. By the time I signed up for this particular service, I only had three genre’s to choose from because all the others were sold out: Mystery, Romance, and Surprise. I chose Romance since it seemed like the safest bet and I’m so glad I did!

If you’ve never heard of the And The Story Begins box, it’s a subscription box service that sends two books to your door on the 26th of every month for $9.99. Because of the low price, I wasn’t quite sure what type of books I would receive, but it turned out okay for me. Both books were gorgeous trade paperbacks…that I didn’t already own!
