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.
BOOKBOX CLUB is a monthly UK based book subscription box. Each box contains a gift-wrapped new YA book release chosen for its sheer brilliance, an invitation to their top-secret monthly online book club, hand-picked goodies created by crafty types and exclusive author content to bring you closer to the brains behind the books. It costs £27.99 a month, or £25 a month if you select a pre-paid multiple month option. UK postage is free, international posting will be additional.
This month’s theme:
In this box we got:
1.A Jigsaw of Fire and Stars by Yaba Badoe
2. Marauders postcards inspired by Harry Potter – The Imaginative Illustrator
3. Exclusive Inej lip balm inspired by Six of Crows – Oriandle
4. Robin Hood bookmark – Marked by Hephaestus
5. Sante socks by Book Box Club
6. Birthday biscuit by Nila Holden
7. Birthday bonus ARC: The Sacrifice Box by Martin Stewart
8. Bookish goodies
I’m guessing the tote and pencils are the bookish goodies? I thought they were box items and the biscuit was a bonus, but this is what the info card tells me.
I was excited for the biscuit but it turned out not to be anything special, this might be because I’m lucky enough to be surrounded by bakers and I have something freshly baked almost every week! Or maybe I just didn’t like the biscuit?
I’m not a fan of the socks to be honest, not just the colours, but the texture. They’re inspired by the main character from the book, but I think I’ll pass them along.
I’m looking forward to reading the book though! It’s got a pretty cover and involves a lost princess who seems to be able to hold her own. My favourite kind of princess is one that can hold her own.
I’m yet to read Six of Crows (next month!) but I’ll be wearing this Inej lip balm when I do! And I have some messages I should really send to people, it’s a habit I should never have dropped even if I never know what to say, so why not do it with Harry Potter cards?!
The pencils seem to have John Green book titles on them.
But for some reason I think my favourite item is the bag! Possibly because it seems to be a secret….it’s not on my info card!
The bonus birthday book was random, from what I can gather. I received one that sounds quite interesting and reminds me of a Nora Roberts series – Sign of Seven, but maybe that’s just the ‘something in the forest’ thing.
