Subscription box: Book Box Club
Theme/Month: Just Imagine, June 2021
Ownership: Subscribed on their 12 boxes option. If you are interested in purchasing a Book Box Club subscription, you can do it on their website.
Book Box Club is a young adult subscription box, the unique thing is the Clubhouse where you can chat to the author a month (or so) after the box was shipped and ask questions and just chat around. It also includes several goodies and usually the choice of book is one that is unique and not in other book boxes so very few chances of duplicate books and a lot of new reads discovery power.
June’s box was all about the power of imagination and therefore full of fandoms that had to do with imaginary worlds or similar things, so let’s see what was inside starting with the theme card and going clockwise:
- Just Imagine theme card, there was also a clubhouse invite.
- Joe Cool Alice in Wonderland socks, which makes me happy because they are so comfy and nice. Love it when I get socks
- Somewhere Over the Rainbow bookmark which is adorable.
- A quote print about imagination and reality, a bit too pink for my taste but still cute.
- Coraline keychain
- The main book, Strange Creatures which was definitely not what I imagined, see what I did there?.
- And finally, a tin of hard boiled sweets, very old style, with a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory motif.
Overall very dreamy, very much appealing to memories and imagination, cute. The book was an interesting surprise and very much for me not my book as it was a bit too intense and just not my kind but I could see why it was chosen and it had an interesting concept.
