Hello Book Dragons! I noticed that these unboxings and reviews do not go very well for me, because I am late with them. 😀 I am having fun while writing these reviews, so I am going to carry on. 😀 For the month of February, I would like to introduce to you Book Box Club subscription box. It was my first time ordering this book box, so I did not know what expect from it. The theme of February’s box was Sisters Of The Coven. So here is a little about this subscription box, and what I found in it…

What was in the box:
HUBBLE BUBBLE RECIPE FOLDER WITH ARTWORK BY ELF PAPER CO: A ring binder with a stunning design, where you can keep anything you like.
I really liked the design and the size of the ring binder. I just need to find some pocket sleeves and I am ready to stock it up.
ELPHABA EARRINGS BY SAPPHIRE FRILLS: A devilishly wicked witch or deeply misunderstood gravity-defying sorceress? Wear these stunning green studs in celebration of Oz’s most enigmatic havoc-wreaker.
These are very cute little studs, but I can not wear them because it does not look like they are made with silver, and I have metal sensitivity and can wear only gold or silver. 😦
WITCHES’ BREW COFFEE BY CAFFE TRAMONI: Pour yourself a potent potion of pure caffeinated magic. As we say: “A cauldron of coffee a day keeps the bad omens away!”
I love coffee, so I did try it out, and it is delicious. I am very happy with this brew. 🙂
WONDERFULLY WITCHY WOODEN SPOON BY BOOK BOX CLUB: Stir up some trouble with this cute cauldron themed wooden spoon.
This spoon is visibly hand made (rough wood) and the little cauldron looks very good. I like cooking, so I will be using this spoon in my daily life.
LAVENDER SHORTBREAD RECIPE BY BOOK BOX CLUB: Compete for the accolade of “Star Baker of the Coven” and magic up a delicious batch of reading snacks with this sumptuous spell!
I like cooking, but I don’t like baking, it is quicker and easier to buy baked goods in the shop. I like the design of this recipe, it looks cute, but this recipe is of no use for me. 😦
TINY TAROT CARD PRINTS BY JADE HOLLY DESIGN: These adorable mini tarot cards are perfect for amateur fortune-teller! Or if you are a wannabe witch with a flair for coven decor, why not jazz up your wall- art with these pretty prints.
I have to agree, the designs of these cards are very adorable and it fits the theme, but there are only 5 of them. 😦 I would like a full stack, that would be fun. 🙂
At the top is a card with the information of the Book Club details and when it will happen.
The second item is a sampler of UNCHOSEN BY KATHARYN BLAIR. I have the book so I don’t really need the sampler, but it is cute introduction to different books. Here is the blurb of the book:
For Charlotte Holloway, the world ended twice. The first was when her childhood crush, Dean, fell in love—with her older sister. The second was when the Crimson, a curse spread through eye contact, turned the majority of humanity into flesh-eating monsters.
Neither end of the world changed Charlotte. She’s still in the shadows of her siblings. Her popular older sister, Harlow, now commands forces of survivors. And her talented younger sister, Vanessa, is the Chosen One—who, legend has it, can end the curse.
When their settlement is raided by those seeking the Chosen One, Charlotte makes a reckless decision to save Vanessa: she takes her place as prisoner. The word spreads across the seven seas—the Chosen One has been found.
But when Dean’s life is threatened and a resistance looms on the horizon, the lie keeping Charlotte alive begins to unravel. She’ll have to break free, forge new bonds, and choose her own destiny if she has any hope of saving her sisters, her love, and maybe even the world. Because sometimes the end is just a new beginning.
In February’s box there were two signed paperbacks. I do not know if it is normal with this box, normally, there might be only one book. As I said before, it was my first time buying this box. The first book was We Played With Fire by Catherine Barter. Here is the blurb:
Maggie has witnessed impossible things. But no one believes her, and now her family has taken her away to spend the winter upstate in a remote, freezing farmhouse.
Bored and angry, Maggie and her younger sister Kate start to play tricks: rapping on the floorboards above their parents’ bedroom, cracking their toes under the table, and telling tales about noises in the night. Then the house starts to make sounds of its own. Neither Maggie nor Kate can explain it, but it seems as though someone – or something – is trying to speak to them . . .
Inspired by the incredible true tale of the Fox Sisters, the girls who made their fortune in nineteenth-century America by speaking to ghosts.
The second book was All Our Hidden Gifts by Caroline O’Donoghue, the paperback will be out in May, so I am very impressed with it being in the box already. 🙂 Here is the blurb:
Maeve Chambers doesn’t have much going for her. Not only does she feel like the sole idiot in a family of geniuses, she managed to drive away her best friend Lily a year ago. But when she finds a pack of dusty old tarot cards at school, and begins to give scarily accurate readings to the girls in her class, she realizes she’s found her gift at last. Things are looking up – until she discovers a strange card in the deck that definitely shouldn’t be there. And two days after she convinces her ex-best friend to have a reading, Lily disappears.
Can Maeve, her new friend Fiona and Lily’s brother Roe find her? And will Maeve’s new gift be enough to bring Lily back, before she’s gone for good?
Soooo, here are all items from the box. Most of the descriptions about the items came from the spoiler card, and I added the affiliate links in case you would like to check out the books. My overall opinion about this book box is not the best. I liked the cute binder, the useful spoon, the coffee and the books. The rest of the items didn’t impress me, considering that it is over £30 including postage. Also, I was looking for a single box for this project, and the only option was to do month to month subscription, even if you are buying it as a gift. (You can cancel it later.) Now lets see what March will bring. 😉
Thank You for Your time! ❤
