For a while, I've wanted to subscribe to a book subscription box. I finally decided to subscribe to one - MyBookishCrate, a new book subscription box based in the UK. It costs £28 plus shipping and it's a bi-monthly box.
The outside of the box is gorgeous and when it arrived I was so excited to see what goodies were inside (Unfortunately, I had to wait to get home from college after an exam, a free period and a lesson). Opening it was so fun!
The book inside was Down with the Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn. I hadn't previously heard of the book but it sounds amazing. It also came with a signed bookplate, a sticker and bookmark related to the book.
Inside was also a watercolour bookmark made by Gina from Behind the Pages (@behindthe_pages) and a mini wishlist notebook. They're both amazing and such good quality.
Personally, my favourite item was a bottle of moonshine necklace created by Anna from Enchanted bottles (@enchantedbyya). It's so beautiful. I only got the box yesterday and I've already worn it out. It will definitely get a lot of use.
Inside the box was also a art print of a quote from Daughter of Smoke and Bone. It's lovely and so going on my wall as soon as my room is redecorated.
MyBookishCrate had randomly given two May subscribers something a little extra in their boxes. When I opened my box I saw I had been given two books. It turns out that I was one of those lucky subscribers and the something extra was a whole book. I received The Outliers by Kimberly McCreight. Thank you so much to MyBookishCrate for that pleasant surprise.
I really loved this box and was so happy with everything in it. I can't wait to read the books and I look forward to the next box in July.
