Bookish Box Unboxings

UNBOXING: May Book Gizmo “Morally Grey Characters” Box

Hello Lovelies! I’m here today with a new box that I’ve never gotten from before, Book Gizmo. As soon as I saw this theme, I knew it was for me and that I HAD to try it! Morally grey characters are my favorites in books and I was SO excited for this box!


The Items:

Throne of Glass Candle by @california_candlecompany
Six of Crows Mouse Pad
Crescent City Lens Cloth
Illuminae Files Mini Book Sleeve
Three Dark Crowns Ribbon Bookmark

Overall, I really liked this box! I probably won’t start a monthly subscription with them, but for a one-off box, this was worth the money. The items were on the less unique side, but the artwork/designs on them were pretty and they were all useful in their own ways. My favorite items were probably the mouse pad and KOTW book sleeve, with my least favorite being the mini book sleeve (I like the design but it’s just too small to be practical).

Bookish Box Unboxings

UNBOXING: March Bookish Box “Crime & Passions” Box

Hello Lovelies! I’m back with my second unboxing since my break and I’m so excited! Anyways, I don’t want to keep you waiting so here is March’s Bookish Box!


The Book:

First off in this box, we have the beautiful book! I love all of the art and exclusive pieces that Bookish Box decided to do for this book. It is all very themed and the reverse dust jacket artwork is to DIE for!! While the genre that the book is (mystery/thriller) is not my thing, I can still appreciate its beauty!


The Items:

Kingdom of the Wicked Puzzle by @Jemlin_C.
The Shadows Between Us Bracelet
From Blood and Ash April Theme Art Print by @morlev_art
Monthly Collectable Pin: Sherlock Holmes Pin by @dustandpages

I enjoyed this month’s items! Overall, not their best box, though the value is still there. I really like the Crescent City book light and the key pin is fantastic! I’m not particularly fond of the fact that they used next month’s theme art as an art print/item? It just comes across as a cop-out to me. Plus I’m not really a fan of the art in general so I didn’t really need it as a print in the box, especially considering it’s the theme art for NEXT month?! I don’t know, it just doesn’t work for me.


Next Month’s Box (April!!!):

I’m excited about next month’s box! The book is going to be These Feathered Flames by Alexandra Overy which is one of my anticipated releases. The customizations sound AMAZING and the fandoms sound awesome! I’m SO excited for the Throne of Glass and Lord of the Rings items!


Overall, this was a solid box. The book and items, while not my absolute favorites, still worked. Bookish Box can be a hit or miss for me, but typically (like with this box) you can still find the value there. Here’s to hoping that next month’s is even better!

Fantasy, Favorites, Illumicrate Unboxings, TBR

UNBOXING: March Illumicrate “Fighting Spirit” Box

Hello Lovelies! I used to do unboxings on this blog a while back and I missed it so much that I decided to bring it back! I receive so much bookish merch (seriously I have a problem lol) so I really wanted to share it with you all! SO today I have the March Illumicrate box to unbox for you all! Hope you enjoy as much as I did!


First up in this box, we have the stunning book! The edges are a beautiful shade of red which happens to be my favorite color so naturally, I loved what the IC team chose to do! The naked hardcover is also beautiful and the description sounds awesome!


The Items:

Court of Miracles Pin Hoop
Bone Witch Heartglass Necklace
Kingdom of the Wicked Woodmark
Winternight Tote Bag

I LOVED these items!!! This box was amazing and all of the items are pretty useful! The RosieThorns88 mug is one of my absolute favorites they’ve ever done (I am biased though because it’s Cassie Clare lol) and the pin hoop is fantastically designed! I already have so many plans for it (involving some beautiful Reylo pins ๐Ÿ˜) but it is beautiful on its own! The tote bag is probably my least favorite (just because I have so many) but it is still pretty!


Next Month’s Box (April!!!):

Y’all have no idea how excited I am for next month’s Illumicrate box!! The book is one of my most anticipated releases with a POLYAMOROUS relationship ๐Ÿ˜! And the fandoms…. omg the fandoms are going to be THE BEST!! I NEED some more Gideon the Ninth and Nevernight items in my life so this box is automatically a win because it has BOTH!!!


Overall, I highly enjoyed this box! It’s one of the best ones I’ve gotten and I KNOW Illumicrate’s boxes are going to improve as the year goes on! The items are all great and the book is beautiful which is what I go into a box wanting so MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
