Introducing our August Theme…


It’s Theme Reveal Time

This August, prepare for a Book Box Club theme unlike anything that we’ve ever done before…

Let’s let you in on our grand plans in the high-drama manner that we’ve all become accustomed to: with a  dramatic, edgy theme reveal video, created by our very talented resident filmmaker Hax Ahmet. So, without further ado, pour yourself a glass of something icy, put your feet up and click on the futuristic frame below (then carry on reading to find out all the info!)…

We are thrilled to announce that our theme for August 2018 is TECH TRIBES!

If you are a geek for gadgets, crazy about coding, or if you have ever wondered about what our future world looks like, then this is the box for you.


Our August featured read is an AMAZING high-octane adventure set in an elite futuristic academy. Prepare to meet an inspiring girl protagonist, a tribe of talented tech-kids and their uber-cool robotic companions!

Right from the opening pages, we knew that this book was destined to be our featured read for August. It’s completely unique, inventive and jam-packed with gripping twists, creative characters and high-stakes competition (think robots at war!). This is the sort of book that will make you completely antisocial until you turn the final brain-blasting page (so you guys better clear some space in your diaries!).

If you’re a fan of The Lunar Chronicles, The Hunger Games, or His Dark Materials, you’re going to love our futuristic August read. And if, like us, you find yourself spending way too much time on your smartphone, this book will speak to your digitally programmed soul!

The book is a stunning futuristic paperback, which will arrive with a signed bookplate from the author and will be gift-wrapped in silver paper and string (to make your unboxing feel like a real treat).


As well as our action-packed August book, we will be sending our Book Box Club members a box packed with bookish goodies. Expect useful, gorgeous items, inspired by both our featured read and some of our favourite futuristic fandoms.

We are so excited to tell you that one of the items will be an EXCLUSIVE CERAMIC MUG, illustrated by a very talented artist. We’ve already seen some early previews of the artwork and we can promise it’s going to be out-of-this-world beautiful! We’ll be letting you in on some more sneak peeks  and supplier reveals very soon, so stand by for more info.


As always, every one of our August members will receive that all-important invitation to our members-only online book group. After some reading time, we’ll meet in our private online Clubhouse along with the author of our August book to chat about all things unashamedly bookish. You’ll get the chance to ask your questions and to meet our other friendly members. We can tell that this Clubhouse meeting will be full of conspiracy theories and we already have a long list of questions for our special guest author!

If you are unashamedly bookish, 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 reads and membership to our awesome author book group, just without the extra themed accessories.


August TECH TRIBES boxes and Purely Books parcels are available from our website now. As ever, we only have  a limited number of boxes available so get yours before they all disappear! Shipping to the UK is completely FREE, but we send our boxes all around the world so if you live a little further afield, check out our FAQ page for all of our postage fees.

Existing Book Box Club members can relax, your subscription guarantees you a TECH TRIBES themed bookish parcel. We’ll be sending you yours around August 15th, unless you tell us not to before renewal day on July 25th.

What do you think of our shiny new August theme? We are so excited to spread the word about our TECH TRIBES August box all across cyberspace and we’d love it if you could help us: You’ll find our theme reveal trailer video in easy-to-share formats on  our InstagramTwitter and Facebook pages, please go forth and spread the word. Hooray!

Have an amazing evening everyone!

Love, Libby and Kate xx
