Independent Reviews from Happier Every Chapter Subscribers

Exceeded Expectations!!

Words cannot express how pleased I am with my purchase from these league of their own young sellers. If you haven't had the pleasure of ordering from them yet - you have no idea what you are missing. I will without a doubt be subscribing to their monthly book box for my stepdaughter - as she has read 10 of the 12 short story books already, and she loves them! When my 2 year old daughter is a bit older, I plan on ordering some for her as well. I want to thank you all so much for bringing back the love of reading into our household, and I wish so much love and success to you young ladies and your family. Please keep bringing joy into your customers lives. Xoxo

If you want a smashing surprise come to your house each month with amazing books to read and unexpected goodies, then look no further! My son was so excited to open the box, has already been reading the "big book of friends" and using the fantastic resources that came with it. It’s such a lovely way to encourage youngsters to read! Can’t wait for next month’s box!

Amazing Christmas Present

My daughters favourite Christmas present this year. It’s lovely to get a parcel in the post and my little bookworm loves discovering new authors. The little extras are also lovely.

Amazing, Fantastic and Exciting.

When I received my first parcel, I was very excited to see what was inside the box and to discover what books I was going to receive. As well as good choices of books I got two short stories written by the Mbawa book reviewers themselves!! I loved the mini notebook that had the motivational inscription at the front. I also received a hot chocolate powder sachet which I really needed at the time along other items such as a magnetic bookmark. Overall I believe the Mbawa book reviewers 'Happier Every Chapter' is highly recommendable.

I love this book club!

When the box arrives, I feel really excited to see what’s next in the reading collection and they also have cool gifts and different theme boxes. I love the little quizzes and the stories the girls write themselves and I think they’re an inspiration to anyone who wants to write their own books. I would recommend them for good readers and people who are imaginative & like going on adventures from their own house!

Absolutely amazing!!!

The idea of having a special little box arrive each month with amazing books to read and goodies, is an inspirational idea! My son has absolutely loved his first box and has already read the first novel. It’s such a lovely way to encourage our youngsters to read! The two young girls should be very proud of themselves! Can’t wait for next month’s box!

Its like his birthday every month

My son's favourite time of the month is when his box turns up full of exciting books and treats. He devours the amazing book selections and is kept busy by the fabulous treats inside until the next box turns up.

Author of The Boy Who Met a Whale

Kirsten and Aiyven are two of the most amazing young entrepreneurs and authors I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. I was interviewed by them for a live event and they were knowledgeable and interesting, showing great insight when it came to asking questions and fielding comments from listeners. I was lucky enough to have a book of mine featured in one of their book boxes, AND earn my book a brief showing on Channel Four, all thanks to them!

Amazing brains behind an amazing product

Having had the privilege of coaching these amazing entrepreneurs and also a consumer of their product, I can honestly say these girls put their heart into their product and have their customers in mind. They are always thinking of how to give their customers the best experience possible. From the packaging to the content 100% genius. Customer service impeccable! What more could I ask for? Keep up the great work girls and see you at the top💕.

Brilliant Purchase!!

My husband and I were looking for a meaningful gift for our daughter's 9th birthday last year and I stumbled upon Mbawa Books. I have to say, they had me sold from the home page! I LOVED the fact that there were young, female entrepreneurs...authors to boot! It meant a lot to see representation, so we signed our daughter up for the subscription IMMEDIATELY. We definitely hit a home run with the box, as our daughter was over the moon with the 1st box and she waited with anticipation for the arrival of subsequent boxes. The selections were diverse and you can tell how much thought and love goes into picking the theme, books and little gifts each month. Whats really great is that you also get the short stories from Kirsten & Aiyven...PRICELESS. Although we purchased for our 9 year old initially, our 7 year old wanted in on it as well and our 3 year old tried to see what he could "steal" away with😃 These boxes leave you feeling great about your purchase-not only for the enrichment brought into your home, but because you are sowing into the lives of another family. Mbawa Books all the way!

We love it!!

We love receiving the book boxes, me as much as them. Even my daughter who is 7 loves looking at what's in there and can't wait till she's bigger to read the books.
