It’s time for another Illumicrate! We love this subscription box and jumped at the chance to post an unboxing of the box we bought.
Without further ado, here’s what was in the third Illumicrate box!
So. Many. Goodies.
The book in this box is the gorgeous ‘When We Collided’ by Emery Lord, complete with a signed bookplate! We love this beautifully written story of first love and struggles with mental health. It looks rather glorious on our shelf, too.
We’d be 100% lying if we said we didn’t nearly faint with excitement when we pulled this out of the box. We only lasted until the end of the prologue of Laini Taylor’s ‘Strange the Dreamer’ before we had to run an excited lap around the room.
We love postcards! These gorgeous ‘When We Collided’ ones feature quotes from the book (the third down is def our favourite), there’s also one from The Crime Club anthology Mystery & Mayhem and a recipe card for cinnamon muffins (YUM) from ‘The Square Root of Summer’ by Harriet Reuter Hapgood!
Ah, bookish goodies! First up is a set of badges from the Ladybirds series by Jenny McLachlan. Then we have a Readers Gonna Read pin from Literary Emporium, an exclusive Ex Libris stamp from Little Stamp Store and an adorable Bookworm Clip from My Bookish Mark which is an Illumicrate exclusive as well!
Goodnight Boutique designed an exclusive To Be Read List notepad which we are SUPER looking forward to using and a rather excellent Book Club Mug from The Art of Escapism!
