Final Illumicrate of 2016! Review and Unboxing.


November’s Owlcrate was the last of the year, and what a year it’s been! This is definitely my favourite bookish box so far. As always this post is going to go into detail about the contents of this books so if you don’t want to see any spoilers look away NOW, otherwise let’s take a peak at November’s goodies.







The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid 

I’ve heard a lot about this novel floating around and so I was interested to see that it had been included in this month’s Illumicrate. I’m really hoping this is going to be a good read and something a little darker.


Happy Socks

What’s better than being nice and cosy when reading? These socks are going to come in handy for sure and I’ve always wanted a pair of Happy Socks. These were unexpected but definitely welcomed.


Aiden Exclusive Candle 

I’m not really sure who Aiden is (I’ve misplaced the card with all the details on) but this candle does smell delicious!


The One Memory of Flora Banks Sneak Peak 

I love that this was included, the blurb makes it sound like a fascinating book. I’m definitely going to have a read of this and then hopefully buy the novel.


Temporary Tattoos, Bus Pass Case and Notebook

I have to be honest this kind of felt like filler to me. I really liked the notebook but not so much the temporary tattoos or bus pass holder.

Coffee Cup Cosy 

I think this is adorable and as soon as I have a coffee cup to use I’ll be popping this on too. You can never have enough things to proudly proclaim to the world you’re a book nerd.


Quotes and Postcards 

There were a variety of postcards given out this month, again this did feel like filler but it did work and make me want to read these novels.


Overall this wasn’t my favourite Illumicrate of the year but I do know the owner welcomed a little one a few months ago! I definitely feel that there’s a good amount of content but hopefully there’ll be less postcards and other items of a similar nature in January’s box.

    I agree, I much preferred my last box. I’ve been really naughty and haven’t read any of the books yet – whoops!
