Hello! I thought I’d hop on here and share with you something exciting I’ve joined for the next three months starting this June.
Literati reached out to me not too long ago and since I’m intrigued by the concept of their brand, I’m sharing with you my box!
First off, what’s Literati?
Literati is basically a book club subscription box that you get monthly. However, unlike other boxes, these book clubs have “Luminaries” or book club leaders like Roxane Gay, Malala, Cheryl Strayed, Stephen Curry, Susan Orlean, etc.
You can participate in book club discussions with these luminaries about the book they choose for the month.
As you can already guess, I chose Malala so I got her June box! Here’s her June pick:
Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters
“Nan King, an oyster girl, is captivated by the music hall phenomenon Kitty Butler, a male impersonator extraordinaire treading the boards in Canterbury. Through a friend at the box office, Nan manages to visit all her shows and finally meet her heroine. Soon after, she becomes Kitty’s dresser and the two head for the bright lights of Leicester Square where they begin a glittering career as music-hall stars in an all-singing and dancing double act. At the same time, behind closed doors, they admit their attraction to each other and their affair begins.”

When I shared this over on my Instagram stories, one of my friends reached out and said they love this author so I’m excited to read this one!
The book comes in a special edition with a printed stamp showing it’s Malala’s book club, a bookmark, a note from Malala about her pick, and an info card with a quote! I genuinely thought this book box was unique and more interesting than others so I’m excited to see next month’s pick already! I need to get to reading this one, though.
Do you subscribe to any book boxes? Have you heard of Literati?
