Illumicrate #7: Unboxing

July 1, 2017 in Bookish Posts, Illumicrate, Unboxings

Life has been pretty tough lately so I apologise for the lack of posts. I do have some great books to tell you about so hopefully I’ll be back on track again soon. In the meantime, here is my very delayed Illumicrate unboxing. If you want to check out what came in previous boxes just click here.

We were told in advance on social media that this box would have TWO books – which I actually completely forgot until I opened the box!

I’m not going to bother with a spoiler section as this post is SO late, but obviously, if you don’t want to know what was in the box stop reading now!

This quarter’s box was packed to the brim. I really love this map bookmark exclusively handmade by Penguin Co.

It’s actually so pretty that I’m too scared to use it! Plus, I do love a good map. I’m now very tempted by their other designs in their Etsy shop.

I’ve had this keyring on my house keys since the box arrived.

This Harry Potter themed keychain is from Nutmeg and Arlo and I believe the blue colour is exclusive to Illumicrate.

I instantly fell in love with this door hanger and print from TJ Lubrano which is, again, exclusive to Illumicrate.

In fact, the print is now framed and on my bedroom wall.

I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a Flickerink candle for a while now so needless to say I was delighted to find this Mermaid Lagoon candle in the box.

It has a lovely tropical scent, but I haven’t yet tried burning it.

In celebration of Sarah J Maas’ ACOTAR series, Merwild created the Feyre artwork for this mug.

I love how she has incorporated the colours from all three of the books.

Onto the book – Truth or Dare by Non Pratt.

In fact, it’s a SIGNED copy…

…which arrived with a letter from the author!

I said there were two books. Well, the second book was an ARC of The Waking Land by Callie Bates, along with an author letter.

My post is so delayed that you can, in actual fact, get your hands on the finished article now.

As ever Daphne included some extra goodies in the box.

What a box, eh?

I’m so pleased with it and also very happy that there’s now not too long to wait for the next box!

Daphne shared with us that the August box will include an exclusive Illumicrate edition of a book where “girl power reigns in this story of a true icon” AND we will get it pre-publication. I suspect I know what book it is and I AM SO EXCITED!! Make sure you order your August box so you don’t miss out. Check out the Illumicrate website for all of the information.

Did you get this Illumicrate box? What did you think?

Will you be ordering the August box?
