Try as we might, we cannot contain our March theme any longer! This theme has been wildly squirming beneath the surface, itching to get out into the world… and now at last, we’re ready to release it.
After devouring just two chapters of this stunning new fantasy novel, we knew that we were on to something really special with this book. And when we turned that final, twisty, breath-taking page, it was clear – we HAD to send this book to you!
Before we give the game away, let’s reveal the theme:
Bring on the beasts: from the whimsical and winged to the fearsome and fanged! Our March theme will be MYTHICAL MONSTERS and will unearth some of fiction’s most extraordinary creatures.
Our featured read for March is an atmospheric fantasy novel about a loch-keeper’s daughter who, burdened by a dark family history, is planning her escape. But before she can flee her isolated existence, myths of a mysterious monstrous tribe surface and threaten to shatter everything she thought she knew about her past…
Written by one of the UK’s most-loved YA authors, this new release paperback is full of deadly drama, unexpected twists and razor sharp prose. It’s honestly unlike anything we’ve ever read before, but we think that if you’re a fan of Patrick Ness’ gritty writing, Philip Pullman’s imagination or the wonderfully creepy and tense atmosphere of our first ever Book Box Club read (The Call by Peadar O’Guilin) you’ll be completely hooked on this book!
As ever, our March read will be gorgeously gift-wrapped and this month as a special treat all books will be SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR!!
We’ve rounded up pretty much every mythical creature you could ever think of, recruited a dream team of creative small businesses to bring them to life via beautiful bespoke items, and crammed them inside our lovely blue box. Newt Scamander’s suitcase has got nothing on our March box!
We’ll be revealing our first supplier soon, but for now we can tell you this box will include five incredible high quality items, two of which we’ve never included in our boxes before.
All members will be invited to join us for a fun and friendly (no monsters allowed!) book group in our online Clubhouse. You’ll get a chance to chat with the author of our featured read, ask your questions about this month’s featured book (or pretty much anything else) and make new bookish friends!
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 postage option for your location.
March MYTHICAL MONSTERS boxes and Purely Books memberships are available from our Subscriptions Page now. As ever, we only have a limited number of boxes available so get yours before they all disappear!
Existing Book Box Club members can relax, your subscription guarantees you a MYTHICAL MONSTERS themed bookish parcel. We’ll be sending you yours around March 15th, unless you tell us not to before renewal day on February 25th.
What do you think of our monstrous March theme? We would be so grateful if you’d help spread the word about our MYTHICAL MONSTERS box with fellow book-lovers. You’ll find all the theme info over on our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages. We love welcoming new members to our bookish gang!
A big thanks goes out to our resident artist Ali Jo Art for creating the gorgeous artwork to accompany this month’s theme reveal.
Love, Libby and Kate xx
