Hello everyone! Thanks for all the kind words in September about the various subscription boxes and services I shared. I have a couple notes on some of those boxes that I want to share real quick - but after that, I finally have a list of some international subscription boxes!
Fanspirations subscription service - my review with the coupon code
I was informed by Amy from Fanspirations that some people tried to use the code in my review and it wouldn't work. There must have been some type of glitch, but she says it's all good now so please do think about subscribing and use the code in my review post to get money off your first month.
Letters in the Mail/Letters for Kids (link to my review). There was at least one comment on this post where someone expressed concern for what the author would write in their letter - they didn't want it to be a fully promotional letter. Wendy, who helps with this program, left a comment and I wanted to share that here so you can all see it:
Hi! I'm the program administrator for Letters In The Mail and Letters For Kids. Each of our author's letters are unique and topics are wide-ranging. We ask that authors not use the letters as a tool for self-promotion. You can find a list of past and upcoming letter writers at www.therumpus.net/letters or on FB www.facebook.com/RumpusLITM. Since the goal of Letters For Kids is to promote reading, the authors will mention a book (usually in the p.s.) so that the children can go to the library and read it. But the letter is not about the book. To see a list of past and upcoming letter writers and two sample letters, visit www.therumpus.net/kids and on FB www.facebook.com/RumpusLFK. Happy reading!

Melanie from YA Midnight Reads recently reviewed an Australian subscription called The YA Chronicles where you get a YA book and other fun goodies that fit the monthly theme. Check out her review here.
There is a blog titled Australian Subscription Boxes that gives a long list of boxes available to Australia. I can't say which boxes are based in Australia (some may have high shipping for the country) or if all of them are still active, but I thought I would share for your perusal.
I hope some of these subscription boxes are suitable for you international (non-U.S.) readers! I tried to find a variety of "topics" with the boxes so that it would fit different interests. You have your book lovers, your cat lovers, your mums, and more!
