Book Box Club - May 2018

Hello readers,

I know this is a little late for an unboxing post but I don’t like ruining surprises. 

I’m so excited I got my first Book Box Club (I’m not sponsored - I think I have to say that, I might be wrong).  The theme for May was Stargazers and I honestly thought the whole box was stupidly cute and I loved every bit of it and I have ordered July's box (It has honestly just arrived)

What was inside the box?

The bookish goodies
The pair of constellation socks by Joe Cool is stupidly cosy. The socks  design is brilliant in my opinion,  I was instantly in love with these.

The Professor Trelawney magnetic bookmark from Magic Bookmarks, is ridiculously cute, and she’s holding her crystal ball. I love this type of bookmark because they hold the page really well and don’t tend to fall out of books.

‘To the Stars Who Listen’ bag by Catarina Book Designs. It’s got a quote from the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J Maas on the front, and it’s quite spacious and its bigger than what I first thought. I always need an extra bag to throw cosplay makeup into.

The Felis Constellation Pin by Tumble and Rose was adorable and is on my lanyard for work. The pin is honestly stunning and I have had couple of compliments about it at work.

A mirror designed by the girls at Book Box Club, featuring a quote from Shakespeare. ‘It is not the stars to hold our destiny, but to ourselves.’

There’s also some bookish paper swag from Bloomsbury and Penguin Random House. These are a bookmark advertising The Smoke Thieves by Sally Green and a postcard for Skylarks by Karen Gregory.

Finally, the book itself
This book is honestly huge and it weighs a tonne. I am honestly a sucker for a paper wrapped book so having the book wrapped in pretty silver paper and some string, is perfect for me.

A kingdom at risk, a crown divided, a family drenched in blood.

The erratic decisions of a prophecy-obsessed king have drained Innis Lear of its wild magic, leaving behind a trail of barren crops and despondent subjects. Enemy nations circle the once-bountiful isle, sensing its growing vulnerability, hungry to control the ideal port for all trade routes.

The king's three daughters—battle-hungry Gaela, master manipulator Reagan, and restrained, starblessed Elia—know the realm's only chance of resurrection is to crown a new sovereign, proving a strong hand can resurrect magic and defend itself. But their father will not choose an heir until the longest night of the year, when prophecies align and a poison ritual can be enacted.

Refusing to leave their future in the hands of blind faith, the daughters of Innis Lear prepare for war—but regardless of who wins the crown, the shores of Innis will weep the blood of a house divided.
