The Book(ish) Box is a monthly subscription of literary inspired items. Every box contains a t-shirt and 3-4 other literary items. This month’s box contained items from different stories pertaining to literary items that involve Magic and Witchcraft.
The Bookish Box now offers the option to have a YA book included in your box! When you sign up, you’ll have the option to select one of multiple box options.
“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”–W.B. Yeats
I received 8 items in my subscription box.
Who doesn’t believe in magic?
My first item is a bubble bath and shower gel by The Soap Librarian. It is inspired by The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. The fragrance I received was Blackberry Tea. It smells divine. I like the label on the bottle. It is made to look like a book. A little bit of this goes a long way. The Night Circus is about two young magicians in a mysterious night time circus that just appears one day. The two young magicians are put in a competition against each other but end up falling in love.
My next items are must haves when reading a good book, a really good tea and tea strainer. The tea company is called Bad Girl Good Tea and is inspired by the famous tea reader, Miss Trelawney just for bookish box. The tea contains hibiscus flowers, orange peels, rooibos tea, peppermint leaves, licorice root, milk thistle, passion flowers, lavender, lemon balm, and marigold. The aroma is divine. The tea strainer also is inspired by the magic world with a deathly hallows charm attached to it. The tea strainer is from Bookish Box. I love them both.
Yes that’s the tea in my Marauder’s map mug. LOL. I am a Potterhead after all.
My next items are inspired by the book A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab. They are 2 art prints with the characters of the story on them. The story is about a magician/smuggler living in a magical world that can travel into parallel worlds. In one of the worlds, he runs in to a petty thief and together of on adventures. I have not read this book, have any of you? Is this more a young adult book? I do like the art prints and their different art styles.
There was also a print board and hair tie from the Bookworm Boutique and a Ouiji magnet from the Bookish Box. The hair tie reads “Books are Magical” and I have to agree. Books can take you on many adventures to many different places. The Ouji magnet has joined my collection of magnets. I am not one to play with a Ouiji board. Have any of you?
I love the shirts that are sent.
They are so soft and they fit great. This month’s shirt is inspired by Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare and the guest designer is Christina Doodles. The book is part of a series. I have not heard of it until I received this shirt. The shirt reads “Life is a book and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read.” I love this quote. It is something I have always believed. I continue to add pages to my life story.
I upgraded my box to include the book! This month’s book is The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy ($12.82 Amazon). I am already intrigued by just the first few chapters.
What if the ordinary things in life suddenly…disappeared?
Aila Quinn’s mother, Juliet, has always been a mystery: vibrant yet guarded, she keeps her secrets beyond Aila’s reach. When Juliet dies, Aila and her younger brother Miles are sent to live in Sterling, a rural town far from home—and the place where Juliet grew up.
Sterling is a place with mysteries of its own. A place where the experiences that weave life together—scents of flowers and food, reflections from mirrors and lakes, even the ability to dream—vanish every seven years.
Well thanks for reading my review. I am off to read more books. Keep reading and adding pages to the story of your life.
