Illumicrate Unboxing

Hey Guys!

My June Illumicrate is here! and that means that it is time for another unboxing! Whoop, whoop!! In case you don’t know what Illumicrate is, it is a monthly subscription box that contains a newly released book (usually YA) and around 6 bookish items, all centred around a common theme. Junes theme is For Book Lovers. So, let’s do this!


I have very mixed feelings about this box if I am honest. I really liked a couple of the items but was kind of disappointed by others. For instance, I really liked the bookend (which we will get the second half of in next month’s box) but I was pretty disappointed by the page markers, as they are not something that I would use. I found the jar a bit disappointing as well as it is just a jar and I don’t like the book sleeve. I don’t like the design of it and I don’t like the actual product. It isn’t a padded book sleeve it is a thin, plastic, zipped bag. it would really protect your book much and seems a little bit pointless. But then I really liked the magnet (I wasn’t sure about these at first but I really like them now. they do a different character each month. I am using them to decorate my TBR cart) and I do also think that the tapestry is beautiful, although I have literally nowhere to put it. like I said, a very mixed box. But what did you think of this box? Do you get any subscription boxes? I hope that you have enjoyed todays post and I will see you all again very soon
