Illumicrate Unboxing

Hey Guys!

It’s nearly the end of the month and so that means that it is time for another Illumicrate unboxing. In case you are unfamiliar with Illumicrate, it is a monthly subscription box that contains a new release book (usually YA, usually hardback and usually an exclusive edition) and 4 to 6 bookish items all centred around a common theme. The July box had the theme of It’s A Kind Of Magic. so, let’s do this.

Side note: I am in no way affiliated with Illumicrate. I buy it with my own money and post unboxings because they are just something that I enjoy doing.


I actually quiet liked this month’s box. While there were a couple of items that I didn’t love, I liked the majority of them, despite not being a part of several of the fandoms. I really loved the ceramic pot, I think that the design is beautiful, I also thought that the art on the bag is stunning, plus I love a good tote bag. I also am really happy that we have another pin banner as mine is getting very full. And the second half of the bookend set is perfect. I really love it and I can’t wait to find a way to use the ends. I am also still really liking the collectable coin magnets. I am slowly decorating my TBR cart with them, the art is just so pretty. And the pin is beautiful. As for the print, I can take it or leave it. I have very little interest in reading the book that it is based off so I’m pretty indifferent towards it. as for the book, while I haven’t heard of it before, I does sound good. and even if I don’t read it, I know it is right up my sister street, so she may steal it. side note, I love that Illumicrate put the book in a little Illumicrate bag this time, like other boxes do. I really hope that this is a thing now.

All in all, I liked this box. It was pretty descent. Do you get any subscription boxes? Have you ever tried Illumicrate? I am super excited for the August box. I hope that you have enjoyed todays post and I will see you all again very soon.
