It’s Illumicrate time again, and this time they have lovely new boxes (see below)! As I’m sure you all know by now, Illumicrate is a quarterly bookish subscription box. They also do one-off specially curated boxes, the next one being Magic & Mayhem which is inspired by the worlds of the incredible V.E. Schwab. There are a limited number of boxes left though!
This quarter the theme is “Oh So Criminal”, and having guessed the book in this edition’s box, I’ve been VERY excited to get my hands on it.View Spoiler »
As I mentioned, we have lovely new yellow boxes for this edition and I have to say, I think I prefer them over the originals.
Let’s start with the book – an exclusive sprayed edges edition of Sarah J Maas’ Catwoman: Soulstealer!
This book is part of the DC Icons series (although they are standalone novels). You may recall we received Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman:Warbringer this time last year and I loved it! I’ve already finished Catwoman and I really enjoyed it.
Speaking of Leigh Bardugo, one of the items we got in the box is a No Mourners No Funerals Lanyard, inspired by her Six of Crows duology. It was designed exclusively for the box by Fable and Black.
In keeping with Catwoman, we received this Gotham sirens print by Jamila Mehio with Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn.
I have to say, I love this Villains Are My Bag tote designed by KDP Letters. It’s a great size too!
Sticking with villains, we received this dual sided Antagonist/Protagonist necklace.
This was designed exclusively for the box by Down The Rabbit Hole.
This bright and cheery Sirius Snacks coaster was the next addition, designed by Katie Abey.
I’m SO excited for Jay Kristoff’s Darkdawn and love a good nail file so this Darkdawn nail file complete with quote and Mister Kindly was a huge hit! Hey Atlas Creative designed this exclusively for Illumicrate.
I can’t believe I still have more to tell you about!
Next we have the “easiest lies” mirror complete with Holly Black quote and designed by Reverie and Ink.
Finally, we have the Perfect Heist candle from Elven Wick Candles.
With notes of lime, sweet melon, water lily, and musk, I love the scent. Plus it is finished beautifully with a sprinkling of glitter.
So there we have it! The Illumicrate Oh So Criminal Box. I’m so pleased with everything in this box! I forgot to take a photo of the bookish swag that was included but you can see it below in the overall unboxing.
As ever, apologies for the photo skills – or lack thereof!

Once again, Daphne has done an incredible job with this box. I love it!
While I’m here, Illumicrate have exclusive special metallic editions of Laini Taylor’s Strange The Dreamer and Muse of Nightmares available for pre-order on their site. As far as I know, Illumicrate is the only place you can get your hands on these beauties!
