It’s Saturday: and we are kicking off your weekend with some serious positive vibes (and a supplier reveal)! Here are just a few of the things the exciting things on the Book Box Club agenda…
1. Lots of our lovely July members are receiving their I LOVE UK YA boxes!
We love seeing you guys unbox your parcels and hearing your thoughts on all of the brilliant books and goodies inside! Don’t forget to tag us in your unboxing photos and tell us about your favourite items.
If you missed out on this bumper bookish box (featuring two brilliant books) there are a few available for sale over in Our Shop!
2. We are getting geared up to go to YALC next Friday!
This year we will be attending the Young Adult Literature Convention in London on Friday as regular book-buying, event-attending guests!
We won’t have a stand, but we will be milling around soaking up the bookish atmosphere, chatting to fellow bookworms and generally enjoying ourselves so make sure you come and say hi if you will be there too! We’ll have sweets, Book Box Club goodies and be fuelled by copious amounts of coffee and sugar! We can’t wait to meet lots of our lovely members and readers!
3. Goodies are arriving for our August LET THE GAMES BEGIN box and it is going to be next-level AWESOME!
As well our the action-packed featured read, this box will feature a beautiful and useful exclusive fabric item illustrated by the extremely talented Catarina Book Designs, an exclusive Quidditch themed item and now… we have another exciting supplier reveal for you all.
Get the trumpets at the ready: we are thrilled to announce that all recipients of our LET THE GAMES BEGIN box will receive an exclusive bookish candle handmade by…
We are thrilled to be working with the lovely Danielle at Bookworm Candles & Crafts , who is creating an exclusive candle especially for our August members.
As huge fans of Danielle’s gorgeous candles, we’ve commissioned her to make many a bookish candle for our members in the past. She’s brought us Kaz Brekker (Troublemakers box, Feb 2017), Fangirl (Geeks Unite box, Jan 2018) and Cabeswater (Into the Wild box, Sept 2018), all in glorious glittery candle form and now we’re thrilled to be teaming up with her once again.
The candle that Danielle has created for our LET THE GAMES BEGIN box might just be our favourite yet: it’s inspired by one of the most popular games in YA fiction, smells DELICIOUS and is super sparkly. It’s also a Book Box Club exclusive!
To eye up some of Bookworm Candles’ other gorgeous creations head over to Danielle’s Etsy page and Instagram then make sure you are signed up to our Let the Games Begin box to get your hands on this candle!
A big thank you to everyone who has already signed up for our game-tastic August box! If you’re yet to join us, here’s why you won’t want to miss out…
THE BOOK: Set in a vivid, underground world, our featured read follows a young girl, who is struggling to keep her dangerous special powers a secret. Soon she finds herself embroiled in a magical fight club, where the stakes are high and surviving to the bitter end is the least of her worries! If you’re a fan of The Mortal Instruments, X-men and The Young Elites then you are sure to love this thrilling read!
Our August featured read will be a new release YA hardback, which will arrive beautifully gift-wrapped and accompanied by a signed book plate from the author.
THE GOODIES: Alongside an exclusive Bookworm Candle and a fabric item illustrated by Catarina Book Designs, our August members will be treated to all sorts of useful, gorgeous and (of course) bookish goodies, including items inspired by Harry Potter, Caraval and Alice in Wonderland.
THE BOOK GROUP: As always, all subscribers will be invited to join us in our members-only online Clubhouse, where you’ll get the chance to ask your questions to the author of our explosive featured read and chat to the other members of our friendly bookish club.
OR OPT FOR PURELY BOOKS: Remember; If you love the idea of a brilliant new read and membership to an exclusive author book group, but bookish extras aren’t your thing, you can still join in the fun. Check out our PURELY BOOKS subscription. Our books-only memberships include the same great featured read and membership to our awesome online book group, just without the extra themed accessories.
It is now possible to purchase our Purely Books parcels on a one-off basis. Check out Our Shop to find out more and make sure you select the correct option for your location (postage prices are included in the costs displayed).
As ever, we only have a limited number of boxes and Purely Book memberships available so get yours before they all disappear!
Have amazing weekends, everyone!
Love, Libby and Kate xx
