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.
