Hello, Muse!

Meet Muse Monthly, your once a month reminder to take some time out for yourself and enjoy the simple things in life. We are so excited to get to know you!  

Muse Monthly was founded in 2015 under one founding principal: at the end of a long day, there is nothing better than curling up with a hot cup of tea and escaping into a good book. Our boxes, each perfectly curated with a book and tea pairing, are designed to inspire and comfort those of us who need some time for themselves. It’s self-care for bookworms!  

In turn, we are inspired by our Muses, and strive to make each box better than the last. Muse Monthly’s centerpiece is always a new adult literary fiction book - but this isn’t your average book. Our team searches the far corners of the publishing world, scouring through piles of books to find you something unique and interesting that you might not normally pick up for yourself. We are always looking out for the next big literary star, the next exciting adventure, the next award winner. Meant to expand your mind and your literary tastes, these are books that everyone will be talking about for months to come! We are so proud to bring you debut writers and marginalized voices to add some diversity and freshness to your bookshelf.  

To accompany your new book, you’ll open a Muse Monthly box and find a full-size container of tea selected especially for you. Our books and teas are meant to create an experience for the reader and are paired together by theme to entice and engage all your senses. We happily support small, local tea makers to make sure you get a unique blend, and hopefully you’ll find your new favorite tea in the process!  

Subscribe today and join a community of Muses from all over the world to read and sip along with. We can’t wait for you to receive your first box and dive in!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in Muse Monthly boxes?

Every month, you will recieve one new novel and a full size tea! Your book and tea are meant to be enjoyed together for the ultimate experience of escapism. Rather than stuff our boxes with junk that you’re never going to look at again, we carefully curate items that coordinate with the theme of the box and that will be useful for months to come! 

A note: Muse Monthly focuses on adult literary fiction - some novel choices may contain adult content. We try to warn you ahead of time if there may be anything triggering. 

What kind of books and tea does Muse Monthly include? 

 We are working with several publishers, both big names (Penguin, Macmillan) and independent (Tin House, Two Dollar Radio) to provide you with some great novels. Our focus is on literary fiction, with a preference towards new publications and new writers. This way, you won't have to fear getting something you've already read. Nor will you have to fear missing out on that great new publication that everyone on your newsfeed is talking about!  To go along with your book, we're excited to provide high-quality and unique teas from great companies. Our affiliated brands include local tea companies who we're excited to support, and brands who provide unique blends that you won't be able to get anywhere else. We assure you, this is not your average earl grey! You'll get something new and exciting in every box.  

What if I already have this month's book/am not interested in this month's content? 

Good news! You can always log in to your account and skip a month. We always announce our monthly content ahead of time via email and social media, so you'll know what's coming. 

I have a food allergy, and I'm concerned about specific contents in the teas. What should I do? 

Send us an email at team@musemonthly.com and let us know! We'll do our best to watch out for you.   

Does my subscription automatically renew? How often will my subscription be re-billed?

When you initially subscribe, you’ll be asked to choose whether you’d like your subscription to automatically renew or not. We recommend that you do so that we can keep the tea and books coming! Re-billing occurs on the 20th of every month. If you have selected a prepaid plan, you will not be re-billed until the end of that term. 

What if I don't want my subscription to renew anymore? 

If you don't want your subscription to renew, feel free to log in and cancel before the 20th of the month. If your cancellation is after the renewal date, your subscription will end after your next billing period has ended. If you need a refund, please email us at team@musemonthly.com. Refunds will be given up to 48 hours after an order is placed.

How do I cancel my subscription?

Simply log in to your account, click "edit", and hit the cancel button. This will cancel your subscription at the end of your current billing period. If you subscribed through the Cratejoy Marketplace, you’ll need to login through cratejoy.com  

When will my box ship? Where do you ship to? 

All orders placed before the cut off date (23rd of each month) will ship out on the 5th of the following month! We ship internationally, so come read along with us!

What if I only want a single box?

Simply click the "shop" button to purchase a single box. These gift boxes will feature the current month’s content and will ship out during the same batch (5th of the next month), but will not renew.
