The time has come at last! We’re about to reveal the theme for September – and as this box marks our third birthday, we’ll be pulling out all of the stops to make your bookish parcels especially spectacular! We’ve secured the most beautiful and brilliant featured read, planned one of your most requested bookish items and recruited a team of the very best small businesses and artists to help us bring our theme for September 2019 to life…
Our featured book for September absolutely floored us. It’s a novel about BOOKS (!), adventure and magical places. It’s hands down one of the most wondrous books that we’ve ever read and is surely destined for a place on all of your favourite reads lists too!
Want to know more? Of course you do! Let’s introduce the theme, with artwork by our fabulous resident artist, Alicia Jo Art.
Grab your golden compass and dust off your sense of adventure! This September, join us as we journey to strange, enchanted lands that will dazzle you with their beauty and wonder. Our theme will be MAGICAL REALMS and will celebrate some of fiction’s most marvellous imagined places..
Our September book is a brand new release, historical fantasy novel.
In a sprawling mansion, our would-be heroine leads a dutiful, life under the beady eye of her master. Until she discovers a leather-bound book – brimming with far-flung stories, mystical portals and otherworldly explorers. Suddenly, she finds herself far from her former ordered existence, swept away on a magical, world-swapping adventure!
With a brave and lovable narrator, a loyal canine companion and some serious age-old fairy-tale vibes, this beautifully written book will leave you longing to set off on your own enchanted expedition. Fans of Narnia, The Night Circus and His Dark Materials – you are going to ADORE this featured read!
As ever, our featured book will be beautifully gift-wrapped (to make your unboxing feel like a real treat) and accompanied by an exclusive bookplate signed by the author.
There will be Goodies!:
This September we’ll be treating all Book Box Club members to a selection of goodies that will transport you to magical realms galore. Fancy a trip to the spirit world of Kami, to a nocturnal monochrome circus, or to a land only reached by stepping through the back of one’s wardrobe? Then look no further!
All items will be designed and created by fantastic small businesses and artists (because we know that you love supporting small businesses just as much as we do). Plus, we’ll be treating you to an exclusive fabric item, that always comes top of the list when we ask our members what they’d like to see in our future boxes! Stay tuned for more news on this very soon…
There will be an exclusive author book group:
All subscribers will be invited into the magical realm of our the Book Box Club online book group where you’ll get the chance to chat with the author of our featured read, ask your questions about this month’s book (or pretty much anything else) and make new bookish friends!
