Calling all book lovers…there’s a new subscription box in town: My Lit Box! I had the pleasure of connecting with Sanura Williams, owner and founder of My Lit Box via Instagram a few days ago. She recently launched this subscription box last week and I’m so excited to share it with you!
I’ve featured a few different subscription boxes before on my blog, but this is the first one geared towards adults. Read on to learn more.
Q: How did you come up with the idea for this subscription box?
A: I had one of those Oprah “ah-ha” moments where I realized that life I was living wasn’t the life I SHOULD have been living. I knew this was largely attributed to the fact that I wasn’t passionate about what I was doing for a living. My Lit Box is the result of my brainstorming on how to make my passion a bigger part of my life. I love to read but unfortunately, I found that I wasn’t doing it as often as I would like. Then I thought, wouldn’t it be cool if there was no guess work? What if I could count on a new book being delivered to me monthly? From this, My Lit Box was born!
Q: What can book lovers expect to be included inside of each box?
A: Each month’s box will include a newly released novel by a writer of color as well as 1-2 quality bookish items that relate to that month’s theme. When it comes to the contents of each month’s box, you may open it and find journals, tote bags, candles, bookmarks, keepsakes, etc. The possibilities are endless!
Q: How are the items selected?
A: I’m constantly scouring the Internet for upcoming releases so I usually start with the novel. Once that is in place, and I’ve drawn a theme from the novel, then I begin to select products. It’s extremely important to me that I not just throw a bunch of stuff in a box. I want my subscribers to feel as if they are receiving a box that has been carefully curated.
Q: Why writers of color?
A: I noticed that when I read lists compiling the greatest writers of our time, be it past or present, very few of the writers (1) looked like me or any other minority and (2) they weren’t any of my favorite writers. This is just my effort to shine light on an often overlooked segment of talented writers and put their works into the hands of book lovers worldwide.
Q: Ok, this all sounds great, but how much is it?
A: My Lit Box offers two month-to-month subscription options:
- Full Plan ($25/month) – With this option you will receive one newly released novel as well as 1-2 quality bookish items
- Book Only Plan ($17/month) – With this option you will receive one newly released novel monthly
Q: Is there a discount?
A: Here Wee Read subscribers can receive 10% off their first order by using promo code HEREWEEREAD at checkout! Order your box today!

This sounds awesome! Pick me please!
I love that this subscription comes with more items than just books for book lovers!
I love this concept. I used to get AA books from the book man in local communities of NYC. Those days have gone away with mobile apps like Kindle, Amazon and various others. This is awesome.
I saw this on the web the other day! Very god idea for all book lovers. Beats going to the li tray or spending hours scouring a bookstore. Glad to see that “bookish” related items accompany it as well. You don’t get that in a bookstore. Great service!
I love this concept this is amazing and much needed as an author I am even more excited about this
SUCH a cool concept! Love this!! Can’t wait to tell my book club. xx, Lauren
I’m currently reading Rocky Mountain Oasis.
I’m excited about this new venture. I haven’t yer signed up for subscription box service, but I think this is one I will do. i love books and it would be awesome to support a small business.
This is great! I’m in.
Sounds like a great subscription box. I’m about to start “The Nest”
This seems more meaningful than most book subscription boxes out there. I hope it ends up being more literary than YA, too!
I hope I win!
Sounds like a good subscription to have!
I am currently reading A Dance With Dragons. This looks like a really good idea for a box.
SUCH a great idea for a new subscription box! I’m a reading addict and always have a weirdly hard time finding something new to pick up.
I’m not reading anything at the moment, I am in the process of finding a book that catches my attention!
I’m in between books at the moment (life with a toddler…) but will start another soon!

I’m not currently reading a novel, I am working on my own book at the moment in my free time 🙂
I’m currently reading 2 YA books, Shallow Graves and These Shallow Graves (two separate books that have no connection with weirdly similar titles).

I am stuck in the middle of the Game of Thrones books! Oh my gosh I love them. I have so many I want to read after this too. Books are so much better then movies imo.
I am reading Bridgefinders by Joshua C. Cook.
I love the idea for this subscription box – really genius, giving exposure to authors who might be overlooked too. Grr, conversation for another time. 🙂 Just a great idea.
I’m currently (re)reading Anne Bishop’s The Others series so far.
