Lit Cube is a monthly subscription box that is reader inspired. Each box includes a book along with other items that fit the theme of the month. Right now, Lit Cube only ships to the U.S. and Canada, but plans to expand to other countries soon. Lit-Cube is $21.99 plus a flat rate shipping and handling of $7.99 to the US for a total of $29.98.
Lit Cube kindly sent their first box to me for free in return for an honest review, thank you so much Lit Cube!

The box theme for April was Unfortunate Fairy Tale!
It included this cute t-shirt. It's a basic cotton tee, but seems very comfy. Lit Cube says they often include T-shirts, so they ask for your t-shirt size when you sign up. The shirts are roomy and fit unisex. This one was designed by Najla Qamber Designs.
There are some yummy snacks. I've already eaten the Sweets By Steph cookie and the Fairytale's Magic Morsels brownie. Both were so delicious. Since I have a huge sweet-tooth, I love that these were included. I have not tried the Jiva Coffee Cubes yet, but I love the idea of instant coffee cubes and I'm sure I will enjoy them.
There are some swag-like items included. First, there is a beautiful picture with a quote that was designed by MaeIDesign. Along with a fun sticker, bookmark/card, baggie with a Lit Cube business card and bracelet, and a card detailing what's inside the box.
Finally, there is the book, UnEnchanted by Chanda Hahn. This is the first book in An Unfortunate Fairy Tale series. It was self-published in 2011. It's about a girl named Mina, who is a descendant of the Brothers Grimm and is forced to break the fairy tale curse that is on her family.
I really like the box and it was so fun and exciting to open. I like that unique things are included, such as the shirt and sweets. Everything is very cute and fits cohesively and nicely with the theme. The packaging is good, all the items made it to me in perfect condition.
I have never heard of the book, but it sounds intriguing and I have not read anything like it before. I think it's important to note that with this subscription box (just based on this first box), you may receive books that have been out for a while and/or are self-published, and might not be well-known. This is a neat aspect, especially if you are someone who would like to be exposed to books that you may not have picked up if it weren't for Lit Cube. It's also awesome to support self-published and indie authors. It's all about personal preference.
