May Illumicrate Unboxing // The Final Frontier // SPOILERS!

Posted June 24, 2019 in Unboxings // 10 Comments

Illumicrate wasn’t subtle about this one.  Most book boxes keep their book a secret, dropping hints, but the people at Illumicrate were so excited about this box that they announced the book almost two months ahead of time.  So, I don’t feel like I’m surprising anyone when I say that that the FINAL FRONTIER box was based around the book of the month, Aurora Rising. Before I go on, to the lovely folks new to my unboxings, a little about Illumicrate! This unboxing is not sponsored in any way.  I do these to give folks an idea of what to expect […]

Good morning lovelies! It’s time for the monthly OwlCrate unboxing!  To start, the regular spiel: For those of you who aren’t familiar with OwlCrate, it’s a monthly young adult book subscription box based in the US.  Monthly subscriptions are $29.99 + shipping and they usually ship around the 15th of the month. I’ve had historically really good luck with OwlCrate.  I’d say that I am 100% happy with 90% of their boxes, which is the best luck I’ve had with any book box, personally.  There are others that are really good as well – I will shout to the ends of […]

Another month of Nerdy Post!  For those who haven’t popped over for my other Nerdy Post unboxing, Nerdy Post is a monthly subscription box that centers around a theme.  There are different tiers of box that cost different amounts, depending upon what you want to receive. Nerdy Post is a box that does not include a book.  The themes can be anything from pop culture.  Alexis curates boxes that are around bookish themes, but she’s also done television and cinema. The May theme was the Weasleys!  Nerdy Post has done a Harry Potter box before, but this is the first time […]

A few weeks ago, I did a post highlighting some of my favorite book bloggers.  One of these ladies – NovelKnight – also keeps a bookstagram feed I watch religiously.  Recently, she spoke a little about ARCs, repping, and honest opinions. Sign me up for this discussion, guys, because it’s a good one. As bloggers, bookstagrammers, and general influencers in the bookish community, we have a responsibility to give a genuine, honest review of the novels we read and the items we purchase. With items we’re buying on our own, this is easy!  I know people squirm about giving negative […]

Another month, another OwlCrate! For those of you who aren’t familiar with OwlCrate, it’s a monthly young adult book subscription box based in the US.  Monthly subscriptions are $29.99 + shipping and they usually ship around the 15th of the month.
