My lovely friends over at Mbawa Books have continued to amaze me by bringing out a monthly book subscription box called Happier Every Chapter. The box is aimed at middle grade children (age 8-14) and is full of diverse stories, short stories written by the Mbawa sisters and lots of other fun things! If you buy the box, it also gives you exclusive online content in their member-only community. Last week they had an interview on their Facebook page with author Sharna Jackson (who wrote High-Rise Mystery, one of the books in the subscription box).
If you are new around here, you might not have seen my posts about the Mbawa sisters before, so I’ll do a quick recap! Aiyven and Kirsten Mbawa are sisters from England who released their debut novels this year. The most amazing thing about this pair is that they are 11 and 12 years old!!!! They reached out to me on Instagram before their books were published and asked me if I’d like to read a sample chapter from each of their books and I was BLOWN AWAY. These girls have the most incredible talent for writing and their writing skills are way above their age… You genuinely wouldn’t know that the authors were so young if nobody told you! Ever since reading their sample chapters I’ve become emotionally invested in the pair and their incredible journeys as young authors.
I won’t talk too much about the books they’ve written on this post as I’ve reviewed them both on my blog in the past (but I will no doubt end up waffling on about how much I adore these two girls for the next 20 minutes). But if you are looking for some Middle Grade books for your children, or if you just fancy something a bit lighter to read then I would highly, highly recommend the books (and I’m not just saying that. They are genuinely incredible, I promise!!!)

ANYWAY back to their subscription boxes. You are able to buy November’s box right now as a one off (whilst stocks last – head to the ‘one off box’ section on their shop), and December’s box “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reader” is available to reserve now with shipping between the 6th and 12th of December! In order to guarantee arrival by Christmas, they’ve suggested that you buy the box before the 12th to avoid any disappointment. The Christmas box has over £40 worth of goodies in for a fraction of that price, and you also get access to the live author interview! Christmas is coming up and they’d make fantastic presents (wink wink)
You can get different offers on the subscription boxes, you can either buy just one month, or a 3 month, 6 month or 12 month plan (the more months you buy at once, the cheaper each box becomes!).
