UNICORN CRATE is a monthly US based book subscription box (though they also have a beauty box option too!). Each box contains a new YA release book and between 4 and 6 bookish things, themed around the months book, one item will be unicorn inspired!

My thoughts:

This was a pretty spectacular first box! I’ve been so excited for this book it’s been crazy. I can’t wait to read this book next!
I was most excited by the purple fairylights and I’ve waited forever to be able to use them! They were the first item I pulled out of the box and it was so amazing!
I also really like the Mulan Print and I wish I had some decent walls to put all these prints up on. I have beams in my walls so there’s not really a good space to put them up on.

It was nice that the tea came in a glass vial. I really want to try it, but I have a bookish tea queue going on. I tend to mostly drink tea from a teabag so I keep forgetting to drink them! Maybe this is the encouragement I need to work through them?
The candle reminded me of christmas and I’m not sure how it fits into the story, so I’ll have to read and find out!

I really liked this crate! It was exciting and fun. It’s expensive postage wise for me though and while I have the June one on it’s way, I think that will be my last one because it’s just too much and I have had a very sick car. For you USA based book lovers though, I recommend you try it!
