the unboxing:

This is the first time that I have had a book box for over two years! And I am super excited to dive into this box. I guessed the featured book a while back on instagram and I was right! Anyways here are my thoughts on the items below.

  • Featured book – The Space Between Worlds by Micaiah Johnson. This book is signed by the author and has an exclusive cover and sprayed edges. I am super excited to read this debut book. It has been on my ‘keep an eye on’ list for a few months so to actually have a copy in my hand is very excited. I cannot wait to see what this intriguing world has to offer.
  • Percy Jackson and the Olympians Inspired Book Tin designed by Chatty Nora.  This is super cute and is shiny. Now all I need to do is decide what I am going to keep in my tin.
  • I am Not Pin Hoop artwork by Felfira Moon Designs. This is a quote from AIDAN and is Illuminae inspired. I haven’t read this series but I love the swirly background design. And I need to put my pins somewhere so this is a great start.
  • Rampion Tumbler artwork by Forensics and Flowers. This is is inspired by Captain Thorne’s ship from The Lunar Chronicles. Again this is a series that I haven’t read and unfortunately the box was shipped without this item as there was a delay. So at the moment I cannot really comment on it.
  • The Huntress Nail Oil created by Madame Alchemie. This is inspired by We Hunt the Flame. I feel like that this is an interesting item to have included in the box. I, myself am not one who spends a lot of time on my nails so I have no idea what to make of this! Is anyone else able to form an opinion?
  • Mistborn Print artwork  by Alice Maria Power. This is one of my favourite prints ever! it is holographic and features all the key characters from the series. And it is this that makes it my favourite item.
  • Monthly Collectors Pin designed by Fable and Black and inspired by the featured book! It is gorgeous and has very quickly become one of my favourite pins.

Also make sure you check out Illumicrate on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
