If you aren't familiar, Muse Monthly is a book lovers perfect subscription box,,,, with a bit of a twist. The cost is $21.00 per month and not only do you receive a new hardcover book, you will also find a new and super yummy tea! It's a fabulous thing. isn't it? Two things that completely relax me in one box!
Normally, Muse Monthly ships out at the beginning of the month, however, they had a bit of an issue this month in the form of a stubborn Delivery Man. This was not the fault of Muse Monthly and they sent a very detailed email to subscribers about what was happening. I'm telling you this because I think it shows how great their customer service is. They were prompt, personal and honest and I believe they handled the situation beautifully!
The Mountain Witch Tea Company Black Jasmine Cream --- The name of this months featured tea company alone makes me happy. Seriously, it's awesome. But not nearly as awesome as the tea itself. It's unbelievably delicious!!
'The Watchmaker of Filigree Street' by Natasha Pulley --- here's the book description from Amazon:
"1883. Thaniel Steepleton returns home to his tiny London apartment to find a gold pocket watch on his pillow. Six months later, the mysterious timepiece saves his life, drawing him away from a blast that destroys Scotland Yard. At last, he goes in search of its maker, Keita Mori, a kind, lonely immigrant from Japan. Although Mori seems harmless, a chain of unexplainable events soon suggests he must be hiding something. When Grace Carrow, an Oxford physicist, unwittingly interferes, Thaniel is torn between opposing loyalties.
" is a sweeping, atmospheric narrative that takes the reader on an unexpected journey through Victorian London, Japan as its civil war crumbles long-standing traditions, and beyond. Blending historical events with dazzling flights of fancy, it opens doors to a strange and magical past.
This is a huge leap away from my typical reads but it sounds very interesting!
I still think that the entire concept of Muse Monthly is pure genius. Two things that are so simple but pair so well to form one of my favorite new subscriptions. This is another great selection and I am excited to brew myself a pot of tea and curl up with a good book!
