Unboxing: July Bookish Box – ACOTAR themed by Inked Illusions Co

Last month, I ordered the first Bookish Box by Inked Illusions Co. It was filled with bookish goodies based on A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. This book definitely lived up to my expectations, and Inked Illusions Co is a local company!

These are the items in the box:

  • Bookish T-Shirt – “Valkyrie in Training”
  • A sticker bundle
  • A bookmark with Feyre’s tattoo
  • “Starfall” candle
  • “Velaris” mug
  • Bath salts
  • Ring
  • Keychain

This was such a fun box! The next one, which is From Blood and Ash themed, goes on sale for preorder on August 16.

Unboxing: Once Upon a Book Club YA Box – September 2020

This month, I was chosen by the Once Upon a Book Club VIP Program to receive a box to review. I was sent the Miss Meteor box from September 2020!

This book subscription is special because there are gifts that you open while you’re reading. Each gift corresponds to something that is mentioned on a page in the book. When you get to the pages with a corresponding gift, there is a sticky note reminding you to open your gift. This makes the reading experience so fun!

This is the book with the four gifts. The book was Miss Meteor by Tehlor Kay Mejia and Anna-Marie McLemore. It’s a fun YA Sci-fi story. My review for Miss Meteor can be found here.

Now here are the gifts that went along with the book:

The first gift was a pink spatula.

The second gift was a mini cornhole game.

The third gift was a beautiful lace mantilla, or shawl. This will be a perfect light cover up in the summer.

The last gift was a purple iron-on patch that says “Meteor Tours.”

This was another beautiful box from Once Upon a Book Club!

Unboxing: Once Upon a Book Club Box – November 2020

I was chosen to receive the Once Upon a Book Club Box in November 2020 from the Book Club VIP program. This was my first box from OUABC and it was awesome!

This book subscription is special because there are gifts that you open while you’re reading. Each gift corresponds to something that is mentioned on a page in the book. When you get to the pages with a corresponding gift, there is a sticky note reminding you to open your gift. This makes the reading experience so fun!

The book was Miss Benson’s Beetle by Rachel Joyce. My review of the book can be found here.

These are the items from the box.

Two teabags from Jaf Tea bags.

A polkadot travel case and a luggage tag with a quote from the book.

A mini bluetooth speaker that looks like a vintage radio.

A magnifying glass and a photo of two characters from the end of the book.

Litjoy Unboxing – January 2019

This is my unboxing of the Litjoy January 2019 box.

I love the new charm bracelets that are going to be included in quarterly Litjoy boxes! There is a banner to hold pins and buttons. There is also a sheet to make a fortune teller!


I love these pirate themed coasters. The shot glass is amazing too!

We got two books in this box! The first book is Ship of Smoke and Steel. The extra book is Brightly Burning, because the book in the previous box wasn’t the printed the way they wanted.

The trading cards in this crate are characters from Throne of Glass. I also ordered the Harry Potter trading cards as an add-on!

This is a beautiful notebook with illustrations from the Chronicles of Narnia.

The book is Once a King by Erin Summerhill. I haven’t read any of the books in this series but they’ve been on my TBR for a while now. Unfortunately, the book didn’t have the special inserts that they requested from the printer. To make up for it, Litjoy is including an extra book in the next box. That is great customer service!

The cards feature characters from Throne of Glass!
