Happy Sunday, everyone!
I hope you’re enjoying the last weekend of 2019 with your beloved family and friends, if not, I hope you’re at least cozying up with a cup of hot chocolate (with tiny marshmallows, YUM), a warm blanket, and a good book! As 2019 is edging closer to an end, I’d love to share some interesting knowledge about something I’ve always wanted/wished/been eyeing for and my job kinda made it possible earlier this year–you guess it–book subscription boxes!
If you’re a booklover or an avid reader like me, then I’m sure the concept of book subsciption boxes isn’t unfamiliar to you. I tried my very first box with Fairyloot back in February this year, and I was so grateful for all the chances to get more in the following months. The overall unboxing experience was quite unforgettable and I’ve got some of my all-time favorite items in these boxes as well.
Therefore, I decided to share the little knowledge I have about book boxes and what they are, how the whole bookish subscription business model works, down to the last details about experiencing the bookish unboxings in this post. I hope you’ll find my post as informative as I aim to let it be and hopefully, you’ll discover some new book box companies throughout the way! Enjoy & happy unboxing! 🙂
Good afternoon, everyone!
I don’t usually post on weekdays but since I’m suffering from gastroenteritis, a.k.a. the stomach flu, these days, I’m gonna seize the precious chance to share my latest bookish unboxing with you. 🙂 Even though I wasn’t feeling quite perky, I did regain some energy after sleeping for hours.
Anyways, please let me present my first ever OwlCrate unboxing for you! As you know, I’m a huge fan of bookish subscription boxes and after trying out a couple of them this year, I’m pretty confident to say that OwlCrate is by far the most satisfying box among them all. Everything in June, 2019 OwlCrate has totally blown me away–even more than that in Once Upon a Book Club April, 2019 box–and I can’t contain my excitement any longer!
Let the unboxing party begin!
Hello, bookish peeps!!!
I hope you’re doing fantastic because I am! This is an unboxing I’ve been dying to share with all of you because everything is too perfect to be true. In case you’re wondering, Once Upon a Book Club Box is a monthly subscription book box featuring both Adult and Young Adult boxes so you can choose between the two based on their hints, or you can simply order both for double pleasure. 😛
Long story short, since I’ve been eyeing this box forever, when I saw their April YA hint, I was ten thousand percent sure their book-of-the-month would be the one on the very top of my 2019 most-anticipating read, so of course I placed my first ever order right away. 😀
Now I’m beyond excited to show you all the bookish goodies in this box and how amazingly the wonderful ladies working behind this lovely business have curated for this one. ❤
Are you ready?
Yep, you read it right! I just received my first ever bookish box two weeks ago and I could barely contain my excitement even talking about it right now!!!!! If you knew me well, you’d know that I’m obsessed with all kinds of bookish unboxing videos, blog posts, and bookstagram feed. To be honest, I’ve been eyeing these book boxes for YEARS, pretty much ever since they came to existence. Hence, color me surprise when I can FINALLY afford one with the money I earned!!! ❤
Long story short, I decided to treat myself with a Fairyloot box partly because I wanted to reward myself in celebration of the hectic yet overall thrilling 2018, considering everything insanely crazy and unbelievably incredible happened last year that totally changed my life, and partly because the February theme was Beast and Beauty, one of my few favorite fairytales of all time. The theme piqued my interest immensely so I placed my order without second thought.
Anyway, let’s get my very first unboxing started, shall we?
