I was super excited to get Illumicrate’s December box for Christmas! I’d guessed the book which was one of my anticipated releases for 2019, and many of the fandoms featured in the box are ones I’ve read.
Illumicrate is a UK-based subscription box. They were originally a quarterly subscription box, but changed to monthly. If you subscribe, you get a box a month which includes a hardback book and 3-5 exclusive goodies around a theme. You can subscribe monthly for £26. There is also a book only option which is £17. Or you can get a single purchase and just buy a one-off box.
Be warned there will be spoilers for the contents of the December box in this post!
The December theme is ‘Secrets and Schemes’ and they revealed before the boxes were posted that there would be a mug and a calendar included.
This is my first unboxing post as I finally decided to order
a subscription box, having been eyeing them up for ages! There are various book
subscription boxes you can get, which usually include a book and a selection of
goodies. Plus, it’s a surprise, as you don’t know what the book or items will
Fairyloot is a UK-based YA fantasy subscription box. If you
subscribe, you get a box a month which includes a hardback book and 5-6
exclusive goodies around a theme. You can subscribe monthly, or there are 3
month and 6 month pre-paid options. The monthly cost is £26. Or you can get a
single purchase and just buy a one-off box, which is what I decided to do. It’s
pretty expensive to get monthly, so I just decided I would by a box
occasionally as a single purchase when a theme catches my eye.
Be warned there will be spoilers for the contents of the October box in this post!
The October theme is ‘Love at First Bite’. I’m sure for a lot of people this must be their dream box, as there are a lot of vampire fans out there. I’m not super into vampires, but I really wanted the book in this box so decided to go for it. I got an eARC of The Beautiful and loved it, so wanted to get my hands on a physical copy and couldn’t resist a signed exclusive copy.
