Witchcraft Unboxed


Fancy a peek inside our July WITCHCRAFT box?

Happy Saturday everyone! With the chilly nights closing in, we’re gearing up for an autumn of reading under blankets, supping hot chocolates and donning our fluffy socks.

We’re also on serious countdown mode… our second anniversary is on the horizon (can you believe Book Box Club turns two in September?!) and we have an extra special birthday box to celebrate. You’ll find a quick recap of everything we’ve told you about our INTO THE WILD themed box at the bottom of this blog. We now have just a handful of boxes left, so if you’re thinking of joining our club this September head over to our subscriptions page now to bag yours. We wouldn’t want you to miss out on the birthday fun!

Whilst we eagerly await our birthday celebrations, we thought we’d share with you the contents of our July WITCHCRAFT box. Witchcraft has to be the perfect theme for us because we are obsessed with anything mystical (and massive fans of Hocus Pocus!). As always, we’d like to say a big thank you to all of the magical talented people who helped us to make this box great!

Behold, our July box…

Witchcraft Unboxed

Thank you to @just_keep_chasing_pages for this gorgeous unboxing photo!

The Lost Witch by Melvin Burgess: Not all witches choose a life of magic! In our gripping July read an impending war and a vicious witch hunt will whisk Bea away from summer at the skate park and cast her into a dark, dangerous world of hocus pocus. As her powers grow stronger and her enemies close in, she is forced to question: if you can’t rely on your own instincts, who can you trust?

Clubhouse Invite: This month, our online Clubhouse turns book group coven as we welcome Melvin Burgess to chat all things witchcraft. Join us and our other magical members for an unashamedly bookish chat about our July read.

If you missed out on our July Witchcraft box then don’t worry! September Into the Wild boxes are on sale now (but there are just a handful left)!

Join us for:

  • Our September featured read! This beautiful hardback follows a social-media-starlet turned girl adventurer, who trades perfectly-preened selfies for the untamed trails of an epic solo hike. It’s an inspiring, emotional adventure story about being brave, embracing challenges and self discovery perfect for fans of John Green’s complex characters, Cheryl Strayed’s quest to find herself and Jandy Nelson’s thoughtful writing style. If you are susceptible to frequent onsets of the travel bug, or you spend your days dreaming about swimming in lakes, watching sunsets and sleeping under the stars, this is the book for you!
  • A BONUS BOOK! As a special birthday box treat, this month we’ll be sending our members a highly anticipated advanced reading copy of fantasy fairy tale adventure, which is not due to publish in the UK until November. Our bonus book features a handsome prince, a distressed damsel, dragons and a wild kingdom! *The bonus book will be included in Book Box Club boxes only and not Purely Books parcels.
  • A whole bundle of bookish goodies inspired by grand adventures, plus a few little self-care goodies to pamper our adventurous members. Watch this space for sneaky supplier reveals coming your way very soon!
  • A signed bookplate from the author and, of course, an invitation to our members-only online book group! We are already so hyped to discuss our September book with you all!
    We only have a limited number of September Into the Wild boxes, so if you haven’t already secured your membership then click here to join us.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

Love, Libby and Kate x
