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. This month’s theme is Armed And Dangerous. 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 think that this might be my all-time favourite box from Illumicrate. I absolutely loved it! they had announced beforehand that we were getting the next mug by Rosiethorns and that it was going to be A Darker Shade Of Magic themed, so I was already super excited for the box, just for the mug (if you don’t know ADSOM is my fav series). the mug is stunning. I love it so much. The art work is beautiful, the colours are bold and perfect. I love it. my favourite ever item from a subscription box! I also love that this month’s collectable coin is Lila Bard. I am loving the coins! I am slowly covering my TBR cart with them. The bottle opener is also incredible. I doubt that I will ever actually use it as a bottle opener, but I think that it is beautiful and will 100% be displaying it on my bookcases. The shower gel smells amazing and I love the little bottle. I think it is adorable. And as for the cutlery set, I have actually been looking at buying myself one of these for a while now so although it is a little bit random, I love it and I am so happy to have it. I am glad that Illumicrate is helping to promote being eco-friendly. I will admit that I am not a huge fan of the bag, just because it isn’t my personal style, but, I’m okay with that. and finally the book. I actually really like the sound of this book. it kind of sounds a bit like a cross between Nevernight and An Ember In The Ashes. I will definitely be reading it!

All in all, I really liked this box. It was brilliant. Do you get any subscription boxes? Have you ever tried Illumicrate? I am now really excited to see what September’s box has to offer. I hope that you have enjoyed todays post and I will see you all again very soon.
