August Illumicrate Unboxing

Illumicrate

I am not a patient person and I certainly don`t stress about other people`s feelings when it comes to spoilers. I believe that life is too short and I often skip to the ending of a book/movie. The horror, I know! When I got this month`s Illumicrate my first instinct was to post an unboxing. But then I remembered that other people might not be as fortunate as myself (helping old ladies cross the street certainly helps with karma). So I took the high road and waited until everyone got their boxes (or at least I hope they did). Anyways, it`s safe to assume that this is the best box I`ve got so far. Everything included was perfect and I would probably cry tears of joy if I wasn`t too scared of smudging my mascara.

First of all, we got "Wonder Woman: Warbringer" by Leigh Bardugo and I'm so fucking excited! Pardon the language, but some F's are in order because I have been waiting for this book forever. On top of that, the Illumicrate special edition has red sprayed edges and it came with an exclusive pin.
In true Illumicrate fashion, we also got an advance reader copy. This time it was "Nyxia" by Scott Reintgen and I instantly fell in love with the cover. Some great authors blurb it and now I have high hopes for it.

From Blossom Books, we got some sticky bookmarks which are perfect to flag your favourite moments. They were also kind enough to send a book money jar which looks adorable. And will come in handy for my next book haul.

From Miss Phi, we got a Shakespeare zip bag which I`ll use to store my pencils and washi tape. Hey Atlas Creative sent us a wisdom journal, while T-ology made me happy with their "Red Church Tea". The last item included was an Alethiometer Coaster inspired by "His Dark Materials". This was another exclusive item and it was designed by Hannah Hitchman Art.

We also got some extras from "Ringer", "After The Fire" and "The Bear and the Nightingale". I also have to give a special shout out to these "Moxie" pins which will go perfectly with my pink denim jacket. Cute and bookish, my favourite combo.

If you`re not already subscribed to Illumicrate, I strongly recommend you check them out. The quality of their boxes is always fantastic and not once was I disappointed by what they sent.

  1. I don't typically pick up superhero books, but I've been eyeing Wonder Woman. Mostly because Leigh Bardugo is such a stellar writer.

    1. I think that this is the type of book that everyone would enjoy, even if they`re not into superheroes.

  2. That is such a great cover for Nyxia! I got an e-galley of it a while back, and I have a different cover, but it's still beautiful! I absolutely adored Nyxia (one of my favorite books this year)! I hope you love it. :) At first I wasn't too interested in Warbringer, but it has gotten such amazing reviews that I now want to read it!

    1. I am really excited about it now. I knew nothing about it before it arrived in my Illumicrate.
