Heady Mix book club unboxing

Heady Mix member, Rosie Talbot, took to Instagram to share her review and unbox our Earth and Afrofuturism collections which were released earlier in 2020. Click the video on the left 👈🏾 to see the review and check out how Heady Mix works.

“This is a book box I have since discovered and decided I absolutely need in my life”.

“They are the perfect book box to diversify your reading… so, awesomeness”.

“Each collection came with an in-depth welcome letter”.

“That unique thing I mentioned that they do, they publish their own collections of flash fiction, short stories and essays and I have not seen that in a single book box before … I think it’s a fantastic way to deepen understanding of the two novels they send with the Quarterly subscription, which is what I have”.

 

Thanks Rosie for being a member and for your unboxing!
