I hope everyone's having a great Friday!
Today, I received the first of the three box boxes I ordered for this month. It's the May 'Stargazers' box from Book Box Club!
Here's the info Book Box Club provided when ordering this months' box:
Prepare for a box about the power of the night sky and destinies mapped out by the constellations. Our featured read for May is a sweeping fantasy story about a doomed royal family, whose fates are already sealed by the sky... unless they can change what is written in the stars. Steeped in ancient magic, with strong female characters and a diverse cast, we think you'll love this age-old epic re-imagined.🌟🎆✨👑
The book will be a gorgeous hardback, which might just be our chunkiest read yet. It will arrive with a signed book-plate from the author and with that all-important invitation to our Clubhouse book group, where you'll get to chat to the author and to our other lovely members. 😀
If you consider yourself a bit of a Daenerys Targaryen, or are a fan of ACOTAR or Three Dark Crowns this is the box for you.🎆⭐️👑✨
Alongside our featured read, Book Box Club members will receive a galaxy of goodies inspired by the night sky and some of our favourite stargazing characters. We can't wait to share what we've been planning with you all!
Let's dive in shall we?
First impressions: As always, the box arrived pretty quickly via Royal Mail. It also felt SUPER heavy so I was excited to find out what's inside!
OMG!! I've been desperately wanting to read this book! It sounds amazing. You can find the synopsis on Goodreads by clicking the photo above. How pretty is this hardback and it's seriously big too (568 pages)! Hence why the box was so heavy!
I love how pretty it is, and whilst the book itself isn't signed (boo!), it does come with a signed bookplate.
How do you feel about bookplates? Love/hate?
To fit with the 'Stargazers' theme there are some funky starry items including these really cool Constellation Socks by Joe Cool - they look really thick and cosy, great for nights sitting outside reading by candlelight (Note to self: buy some outdoor candles!) and this A Court of Thorns and Roses inspired pouch by Catarina Book Designs which I'm sure I'll find a bookish related use for. I'm sure it'd make a great makeup bag if you're into that sort of thing...
Besides the book, these are my two favourite items from this box. The little Felis Constellation Pin from Tumble and Rose is seriously cute but it's the Professor Trelawney Magnetic Bookmark by Magic Bookmarks that I love the most. This is my first Magic Bookmark and now I want more!
Last, but not least, there are a few bookish extras from Bloomsbury and Penguin - I love the Smoke Thieves bookmark - and there's a special item in the form of a Shakespeare inspired mirror created by Book Box Club.
There are some pretty cool items in this box and I cannot wait to dig into the book! Which item do you like the look of best?
I have a feeling it's going to be hard to narrow down my monthly book boxes to just one at the end of this month!
