Subscription box: Illumicrate
Theme/Month: Never Enough, July 2021
Ownership: Subscribed on their 6 boxes option. If you are interested in purchasing an Illumicrate subscription, you can do it on their website.
Illumicrate is a book subscription box, it usually features fantasy and sci-fi but not exclusively young adult, sometimes it features adult too. It usually contains a new release, a pin and several bookish goodies.
The box to complete the sapphic trifecta with a very summery look and some interesting item choices, starting from the book and going clockwise:
- She Who Became The Sun, trying to rival the sun with sprayed edges and looks of the book.
- A Descendant of the Crane fan, very good of a hot summer day to keep cool.
- Poppy War inspired mug, which is very loved by me.
- Another of those odd print in a glass kinda portrait holder. I like the portrait holder, not so much the print and I do not care for the fandom.
- A compact mirror inspired by Dorian Gray
- Lila Bard bust which I mean, a bust is cool but I don’t need it, see no use for it except gather dust and honestly not crazy about it, however I do appreciate the artwork.
- The Upper World taster.
- Monthly in which is stunning
- And finally the theme leaflet!
As much as the previous box was really up my street, this one was a huge miss, between fandoms and the items, it just failed to hit the spot with almost everything except the mug and fan, which seems to be something that happens when there is a mug included, I am less keen on the rest of the items. Hopefully the box for August is more up my street.
