Happy Saturday bookish buddies! Now that all of your Witches in the Woods June boxes are officially in the post and arriving all around the globe, it’s time to turn our full attentions to July box organisation mode! Book Box Club is a hive of activity at this time of the month as as our lovely suppliers put the finishing touches to the unique items that they’ve been creating especially for our members, our packing team set to work on gift-wrapping your books and we buckle down to the nitty gritty, behind the scenes business stuff (which involves some serious spreadsheet taming!
This month we are extra busy finalising the details for our I ♥ UK YA July box, which is shaping up to be our most unashamedly bookish box yet. We’ve already told you that there will be TWO FEATURED READS, but now it’s time to tell you about a very special extra that we’ll be sending all of our members this month…
This July, we are so excited to share with you our UK YA Summer Reading ZINE! This exclusive digital publication will be available to Book Box Club AND Purely Books subscribers only and will introduce you to the very best up and coming UK YA books. giving you exclusive sneak peeks and introducing you to a whole chorus of brilliant new British YA voices!
We’ve teamed up with our publisher buddies to create a zine crammed with bookish content: from letters from our featured authors to exclusive author Q&As, from samplers of incredible YA books to reading recommendations galore. If you want the inside scoop on the best UK YA reads coming out this Summer/Autumn or a reading tip from an author extraordinaire, look no further than our Summer Reading Zine!
We’re going to keep lots of the featured authors under wraps, but as a little teaser we can reveal that our Zine will include writing from YA faves Lauren James and Lisa Williamson, plus new kids on the block Emma Barton Smith and Sue Cheung.
You’ll find all of the info about how to access the Zine in your July box or Purely Books parcel (That’s right lovely Purely Books people, you’ll get full zine access too). We can’t wait to share all this extra dose of bookish content with you all, but be warned… it might leave you wanting to add lots more brilliant books to your TBR piles!
Our July box will also feature TWO BRILLIANT FEATURED READS, goodies for the unashamedly bookish and an invite to a bumper book group where you’ll get to chat to both of the authors of our featured books.
If you’re yet to sign up head on over to our subscriptions page now, we only have a limited number of boxes still available and we wouldn’t want you to miss out on what is sure to be our most unashamedly bookish box to date!
Have lovely weekends one and all.
