Unboxing: BookBoxClubs Into Dystopia

So, I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited for a box as I was for this one since I started receiving my Book Box Club boxes back in May 2017!

With fandoms like the hunger games, divergent and the handmaids tale used to make this box that much bookishly better, perhaps excited is an understatement!

Inside, I got:

Scrolled Invitation to the clubhouse meeting to chat about the featured book! Plus a mini interview with the author and her inspirations

Supplies to Stay Alive Pad by Bread & Jam which has a magnet on the back so you can stick it to your fridge!

Emergency Zesty Chocolate Orange Bar by Gnaw, which was eaten within an hour or so of opening the box – I needed chocolate and that’s an emergency

Handmaids Tale Cuff by Beautifully Bookish! Although a bit small for my wrist (I have fat hands, what can I say), this cuff is absolutely gorgeous, and is a BBC exclusive!

Arrow Pen by Book Box Club inspired by the Hunger Games! I can just imagine taking this in to an exam or test, and looking to the quote on it and laughing at myself!

Dauntless Tea by Craft Tea Company! I don’t like tea at all, but it’s still pretty – and I’m gonna make my dad try it!

Outwalkers by Fiona Shaw, whose first chapter reminds me of the game Little Nightmares a bit!

Goodreads Summary:
Set in an England in the near future, Outwalkers follows a gang of kids and their perilous journey to make it through a country where the government is tracking everyone and their every move is analyzed and controlled. They must live on their wits, and must work together to survive and escape

And, lastly, book promo from BBC’s publisher buddies over at Penguin Random House, Usborne Publishing and Golliancz.

It truly was an amazing box filled with some awesome stuff!

Has anyone read or heard of Out Walkers?

Over the next few weeks, I’m hoping to revamp any previous unboxing posts and continue this type of style for them! I’ll also be posting previous unboxings – which have just stayed in my drafts folder and never got posted!

On friday, I’m hoping to post a fun little blog about an embarrasing thing I do because I love to write! And how it helps put everything into perspective!

Until then though guys,

Just Keep Writing,

Quest Worthy Box For A Legendary Subscription!

I recently got the Quests and Legends BookBoxClub October 2017 box and I’m so happy that I can share it with you guys! It was full of mythical things (as it always is) and some tiny baby legendary beasts!

The first thing I picked out was the beautiful spoiler card. The designs are always gorgeous and make a beautiful print to put up on your wall! (Mine are currently hiding on my book shelf, I really need to find a way to display them in all their glory).20171018_111327-11711351266.jpgThe second thing, which you couldn’t not notice, was this bundle of pink bubble wrap surrounding one of the most gorgeous mugs I’ve ever seen! It goes perfect with the fearless females coaster! And was designed by Four Seasons Fox and inspired by the featured read!

Next to come out of this box was something every October night needs, or afternoon as it turned out for me! That was a gorgeous hot chocolate kit designed by Maple Molly’s and inspired by the Chronicles of Narnia!

I had to try it straight away, and it was heavenly guys, like wow, I wish I could just have one-a-day for the rest of my life! I’d die a happy woman! It was that good!

The next too items were crafted from wood, with one featuring a quote from one of my favourite TV shows ever, and the other just a beautiful little thing(s) inspired by the featured read!

I’ve never had a wooden bookmark before, and in my opinion, it has one of the best quotes you could have! What reader could say it was wrong? It was crafted by the team at Hughes Lazer Design. And, these lovely little earrings by Kate Rowland make me want to get my ears re-pierced! They look like slices of Pizza a bit (I like them too so I don’t care), but they’re actually mountains and they are adorable!

And before I show off what we got as the featured read this month, here are all the little extras that the BookBoxClub included in the box. Some promo for some books (which sound awesome and have beautiful covers that I can display on my wall) and the cutest little Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion sticker you have ever seen! They were designed by the obviously talented Spanish Graphic Designer Wild Sally! And they now reside on my laptop, and I’m in love with them!

This month, the featured read is:

20171018_110736-11809278749.jpgThe goodreads synopsis reads:

Red, red, the lights glow red
Beware the danger up ahead…
On the frozen island of Skane, the sky speaks. Beautiful lights appear on clear nights, and their colours have meaning: Green means all is well, and the Goddess is happy. Blue means a snow storm is on the way.
And then there’s red. Red is rare. A warning.
Seventeen years ago, the sky turned red just as Ósa was born, unleashing a plague that claimed the lives of hundreds of villagers, including her own mother. This time, when the night sky once again bleeds crimson, she must discover how to stop the onslaught before so many lives are lost again.

It sounds like a tale full of adventure, myths, legends and just the book to cozy up with a hot chocolate on a cold night! I’ll be honest and say I’m a bit behind on BookBoxClub books, but, it’s more because I have so many books I want to read and I don’t have the time to read them, but their all books I would like, and whatever happens, I’m hoping I get the majority of them read by Christmas!

Life Lessons in the Schoolroom – Schoolroom Scandals Unboxing

BookBoxClub June 2017

A new month means a new bookboxclub box! This is my second box of (hopefully) many more and instead of one, it had two books to add to my to be read pile! I enjoyed Sebastien de Castells Spellslinger so much (find my review here) that I have no doubt I’ll enjoy this one!
The books included was the featured read and a mystery arc copy of a 2017 release!
If you are not subscribed yet,  you can sign-up here and follow their wordpress here!

So, obviously, first thing you see as you open up is the beautifully designed card teling you all about the things in this months box and where they came from! Also, this month, we got a little jar of jelly-beans because everyone needs a school yard treat! And it’s got my name on it too so my brother can’t eat them!


Followed by the signature paper strings that my dad hates finding all around the house… Oops!

The second of the bookish items I picked out once I uncovered the goodies inside was this beautiful candle! Made by Meraki Candles, this exclusive candle was made for the swoon worthy bad boy in this months featured read! I never knew rum, black lily and cedar wood could go together so well! It smells divine!


The next thing that caught my eye was this pack of 50 Remember post it notes by Paper Pipit! Great for your journal, fridge, wall, files and just about anywhere to help keep yourself ordered and organised!


Next, displayed in a lovely little cloth pocket was this Readers Ring by The Locket Library! With a 10% off voucher on my next purchase! I’ve browsed their store and am looking forward to using my code to buy me something beautiful!

I’m not all that in to rings, but as you can see… It’s useful for someone!

This month also featured a Hurricane Pencil case by the Book Box Club with a John Green quote! A perfect place to put your post-it notes and wands – ahem – pencils from last months Wizard at War Box (That unboxing can be found here).

As always, the box also featured some promotion for another book, and this month was a postcard featuring Hayley Barker’s Show Stopper! I think I’d add this to my TBR pile just for the cover!

Also, this adorable little Juniper Lemons HAPPINESS INDEX badge! I love badges and pins so this is just another one to add to my collection!


Now on to the books. This months featured book is a YA book by Karen McManus called One of us is Lying! I said this last month, but I’ll say it every month probably… I love how you get something with the authors signature on it!
And the mystery arc book that I got was After the Fire, a book released in January this year by Will Hill!

And, as always, there is a little scroll to open at the end with an invite to The Clubhouse to talk about this months featured book with the author and a little interview about the authors inspirations! This lady must be smart because she’d choose Mrs Weasley as a companion in a zombie apocalypse!


Again, I loved this box! Libby and Kate do a lovely job at putting them together every month and I’m super excited for next months theme ‘Spells and Remedies’ featuring items from The Literary Omnivore and Holly Grace Illustrations!

Thanks Bookboxclub!

And remember guys,

Just Keep Writing…

You might end up as a featured book in a book box one day!
