My Bookish Crate unboxing - box 1
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.

Wow, this book came with some really wonderful goodies! First of all, it is SO COOL that you got an extra book. Also, the watercolor bookmark and the necklace are both so beautiful. I really want to subscribe to some sort of bookish subscription box, but I'm so broke lol!

I've just received the second box so the review should be up soon. Have you thought about a one off or quarterly box?
