Book A Sloth Club English Box Unboxing

Hellooooo Everyone,

Book A Sloth Club is a Hungary based bookish subscription box (they are the first ones in Hungary and I’m very proud that now our little country has it’s own subscription box as well :)). They started the boxes last year and the first couple of boxes where hungarian boxes. As I don’t really read books in hungarian I was very excited when they announced that they are going to have English boxes as well so when in January the English box became available I instantly ordered one for myself.

My box arrived yesterday and it looks very cute, I love the dimensions of the box and the sloth is just adorable.

When I opened the box I loved how the content looked like. The black tissue paper covered the goodies and the spoiler card was on top – it made the excitement even higher. The spoiler card is really pretty, I love how minimalistic it is.

Once the tissue paper is removed all the goodies are revealed and I am very surprised by the quality of them, I didn’t anticipated the that the box is going to be this good. The curation and the quality of the content reminds me of the FairyLoot boxes which is by far my fave subscription boxes, Book A Sloth’s February box is as good goodiewise as one of the best FairyLoot boxes.

The firsz thing I saw and made my heart leap was the Dementor mug – I love my Harry Potter themed mugs and I don’t have any Dementor – Expecto Patronum themed and I love this so much!

Moving to the next goodies I found the things that told be what the book is going to be – and here was the first thing when I told ‘Shit’ out loud. I got January’s FairyLoot and Owlcrate, both contained the same book. And now it seems I got my third copy of it.

Next I found a book sleeve with a very interesting and cool design. I love to get book sleeves in subscription boxes I now have a couple of them but I always in need for more – I’m a mood reader and I read a lot of book sin the same time. One this about this book sleeve is that the dimensions of it a little bit odd but it is pretty and it can hold a bigger hardcover so I don’t mind.

The next goodie is a candle! I love bookish candles! And it smells sooo good, vanilla, plum and musk and it is sooo wintery and cozy, I love it.

Now onto the last items apart from the book, they are these adorable sloth themed magnetic bookmarks, I love the design of them, they are sooo adorable!

Aaaand onto the book – The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Now here I feel so proudย that our little hungarian subscription box managed to include a such hyped book as The Cruel Prince and even manage to have a letter from Holly Black!

My only remark would be for this box is that I would love to have some hints what the book is going to be, so you are not going to have multiple copies of the same book from different subscription boxes or reorder the same books. I would love to have those descriptions when announcing the next theme as the other subscription boxes have – not telling directly what the book is but if you want to be sure that you are not ending up with multiple copies of the same book with a some research you can find out which book is going to be included.

Overall I LOVED this box and I’m very proud and already ordered the March box – I’m very excited what it is going to be, but this box was a really strong and great start! ๐Ÿ™‚

Love,
Szandi

 

Gracefully Bookish Unboxing

Hellooo everyone!

I’m a huge bookish box fan, I love getting bookish candles, jewellery, bookmarks etc. and also I love to try out different boxes. A couple of months ago a lovely lady on Bookstagram started a whole new bookish box: The Gracefully Bookish Box.

I decided that I have to have the first box: especially when I learned that the first box’s theme is going to be Fae: everything is about the world of Sara J. Maas. I preordered my box immediately.

Later Julia, the creator of the box decided that she is going to make two tiers: Feyre and Aelin. Aelin is the bigger box, so I upgraded mine from Feyre to Aelin.

Julia talk a lot to us through the bookstagram page of the box, so we know where the process currently stands. I was so excited when I saw that my box was sent! 

Once I received the package I wasn’t able to stop myself I dived deep into everything that was in the package. Julia wraped everything in the box carefully separately, it was so much fun like Christmas! And I must say, that I was pleased and happy with everything I found. 

So let’s see, what was in the box!

A bunch of Oriandle bookmarks

Feyre, Rhys, Aelin and Rowan magnetic bookmarks by EpikPage

Rhysand Bracelet by TheMoonTales

Aelin lipbalm by Oriandle

Feyre tattoo by Bookmark’d Tattoos

Artprint by AKoreanSeoul

Rhysand and Aelin tea by Malfoy Tea Emporium

Overall I was pretty happy with this box, thank you Julia!!

Cheers, Szandi

Book Box Battle

I saw this idea on the BookTube channel of G, aka Book Roast. The thing is basically that you get two book boxes and battle them.
I have two subscription boxes here today, the July OwlCrate box, where the theme of the month was Wanderlust, and the July FairyLoot box, the theme here was Tricksters.
I’m getting FairyLoot every month since last December and I’m obsessed with their stuff, the items in the box and the theme is never let me down! Usually I really enjoy the book included as well.
My first OwlCrate box was this May’s Comic Explosion box, which I LOVED! I got every box since and also I bought two past boxes of them โ€“ the April and March ones.

So without further ado, let’s jump into the boxes!

First let’s investigate the content of the FairyLoot box.

  • An Exclusive Sherlock Enamel Tin Mug by Fictiontea Desings
  • Loki Body Lotion by GeekyClean
  • Harry Potter Playing Cards
  • Fortune Telling Litchen Glove
  • Harley Quinn print designed by MissPhi
  • Six of Crows bookmark by LexyOlivia
  • Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody

And now to the content of Owlcrate:

  • Newt Scamander Funko Keyring
  • Pocket Journal by Ooly
  • Owl luggage tag by Mudhappy
  • ADSOM mirror by MissPhi
  • Artprint by Shailey Ann Designs
  • LOTR drawstring bag exclusively by Owlcrate
  • A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee

Both boxes were very strong this month! I’m really happy with both books, I’m really looking forward to read them. My heart goes a little bit with OwlCrate because of the LOTR bag because OMG it is sooo amazing!!! When I opened the box and saw it I literally felt that this was the best thing I ever got from a subscription box. That item is definitely my favourite from this months loot, and also from the Owlcrate box. From the FairyLoot box my favourite is the mug, I love tin mug, they are adorable and always remembers me to my grandpa ๐Ÿ™‚
