Screen Shot 2016-08-09 at 20.01.30

It’s that time of the month again! Yes it’s Illumicrate unboxing and review! As always if you don’t want to see/read about the contents of this box LOOK AWAY NOW! If not, I’m so excited to share what I think is possibly the best book box I’ve received so far and with that, on with the review.

The Graces by Laure Eve with letter 

I’d never heard of this book prior to getting my sub box but it looks incredible. There’s talk of witches, power and wealth. The letter from author Laure is also a lovely touch to the box, it also came with a signed sticker to place inside the book. I can’t wait to tuck into this!

NeverNight – Jay Kristoff 

I actually squealed when I found this in the box. I’d actually pre ordered this online but luckily my box got here before. I’m SO excited to read this assassin based novel and love a good bookmark and something to stick up. *squeal*

Gilmore Girls Exclusive Bag 

Now, I’ve never seen Gilmore Girls (although I might give it a go seeing as there is so much hype) but found out that this means ‘ready for anything’, I love that quote. So it’s a win, win. IMG_8676

The Trio Coasters by Taratjah Art – Exclusive 

I was nervous when it was announced there would be an item related to The Cursed Child (see my review here) but this catered to both the original films and the current play. I do think it’s odd that the Hermione’s don’t match but I supposed one is to match Emma and one Noma. Either way they were a nice addition to the box and thoughtful of different interpretations of Hermione.

Drink Me Strawberry Tea from Post Tea (also an exclusive) 

An Alice in Wonderland themed treat, I’ve never tried a Strawberry tea before but I’m excited to try this.

Small Prints 

Now, I’m not sure what these are from and the box doesn’t tell me either, they are beautiful designs though and I’d like to know more.

Bookmark Discount Code 

I love a good bookmark and the promise of an unusual bookmark is always a bonus, I’ll be heading over to check them out soon!

Witch Tattoos

This ties in with The Graces (I think) as a fun addition. I doubt I’ll wear them but I will head over and take the quiz!

Colouring Quotes – Ashley Poston 

Some fun colouring from Ashley Poston, we also received a discount for her latest book. These are fun but without reading the books I have no idea of their significance, either way colouring is colouring!

Unboxed print and discount code 

The latest novella from Non Pratt (who I once met and is really nice) with a discount code as it is out this month! The novella promises to be about ‘a brilliantly diverse case of characters…return to their old school and discover that no one can ever truly go back’. I may have to pick this one up.

And that’s all of it! It was such a lot of content that I almost couldn’t fit it all in one picture! Again I can 100% recommend illuminate, it’s definitely my favourite book sub so far!

Let me know what you think!
