I love receiving post. I recently signed up to Glossybox, a monthly subscription box that sends all kinds of surprise beauty products – from hair masks and eye shadow to nail polish and hair bands – straight to your door. I really enjoyed opening my first box, but I was even more excited when my friend Daphne at Winged Reviews launched a bookish subscription box, Illumicrate. I thought I’d tell you a little bit about it!
Illumicrate is a quarterly subscription box for book lovers. Each box will include one new young adult book, plus other bookish items, like bookmarks, jewellery and stationery. It costs £29.99 per box (with free shipping within the UK!) and Daphne has also done a lot of work to make sure she can ship internationally.
I’ve had a sneak peek of some of the goodies – including the book! – from the first box and I’m super excited about it. As with any subscription box, it’s always a bit of a gamble as to whether you’ll get any items you’ll love, but I think Daphne’s done a brilliant job to make sure that there’s something for everyone. I’m looking forward to seeing what else she’s included! I’ll of course be doing an unboxing post when my crate arrives (I can’t wait!), but if you’d like to find out more about Illumicrate (or to subscribe to the first box!) head over to Illumicrate.com.
Are you subscribed to any other bookish or non-bookish subscription boxes?
