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.
