River Song knows the situation.
This is an UN-BOXING post.
We like stuff.
We LOVE book stuff like BOOK BOXES!
Join us on Sundays where we’re just bursting with excitement as we show off our new book stuff!
Please link back to our blog if you too are a lover of showing off stuff on Sundays.
MARK THE PAGE is a monthly Australian based book box. Each box contains a newly released book and between 3 and 6 bookish things. They often have special, themed boxes centred around a high profile book. You will get that book and 7 bookish items that fit in with the theme.
As of posting there are TWO on their website – Tower of Dawn by Sarah J Maas and Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff.
MONTHLY BOXES are roughly £25 and SPECIAL BOXES are around £31. Postage to the UK costs £25.
This was the special TOWER OF DAWN box!
In this box we got:
1. a Reversable book sleeve – Blurring Pages
2. Exclusive Chaol candle – Novel Scents & Co
3. Exclusive rooibos tea blend – Bookish Teas
4. Fleetfoot bookmark – Till and Dill
5. Sam Cortland soap – Behind The Pages Store
6. Exclusive tote bag – Ink and Wonder Designs
7. Rowan and Aelin print – Jo Painter
8. Tower of Dawn by Sarah J Maas
Like the last special box Mark The Page made for a Sarah J Maas book,I’m behind in reading this series too! I had hoped to have caught up with it by now but eh, too much to read so little time.
Mainly I go this box for the book sleeve! Because I didn’t have any at the time…Also I love book goodies and I suspected I’d be getting this book anyway so really it made sense.
The book sleeves were many different patterns I believe. Of mine, this is my favourite side, cats and mountains and trees!
I don’t know yet who the bag references but it’s still nice to get Ink and Wonder items as the postage can be quite high, or maybe that’s just because I want to order too much?! I have a few items now though so I’m quite happy.
I didn’t get the bookmark until I read the info card, but that’s because the picture is of a golden retriever and Fleetfoot was a hound, I thought.
TEA!! Love some tea. I’ve been working on my extensive bookish tea collection so that I can get to tasting this one soon!
I don’t think I’ve had a candle from Novel Scents & Co before, this one has a nice and soothing scent.
Mostly I’m excited about the Same soap! This is the debut for this scent but I’m holding out for the perfume! I LOVE Behind The Pages perfumes, but we’ll talk about that another day. I have some soaps, even a ship soap! But I haven’t tried using them yet – I’m a little nervous about how my skin will react so I will have to start with my hands I think.
I don’t think this box was as exciting as the ACOTAR box, but I think that’s just because the perfumes from the box being available for special purchase for a limited time extended the excitement, because this box has a book sleeve, Sam soap, a bag and TEA! Also a candle.
I’m looking forward to the Godsgrave box even more now! That was shipped this week I believe so hopefully it’s here soon!
Sorry for the blurry photo, they don’t look blurred when I take them! I check! Looking forward to getting a new phone with a better camera. Or I could just use my actual camera…
