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
