October Unboxing – Books N Beyond Box

Ever since I discovered(?!) book boxes exist in India, I make it a point to get one each month. And Books n Beyond Box has been a favorite now, I do buy from the others but notice how I write a review only for this 😛 Coz its that gooood 😀

The October theme was “Femme Fatale Kicking Arse since Eons” (that’s a mouthful :P)

I have vouched for this box enough times already on Instagram and here, so its enough to say i loved this month’s box. So off to the box contents…

🌟The BOTM is Wonder Woman Warbringer, book 1 from the DC icons series. We do know WW is a kick ass character and there were THREE more items – a Funko, the Wonder Woman patch (instant love!) and a Original (!!!!!) DC comic – based on the character.
🌟And honouring someone from the classics , it was none other than Jane Austen – a bookish pendant that looks vintage-y and gives you all the Victorian vibes…
🌟A spells coaster honoring the greatest witch of her time , Hermione Granger.
🌟 Inej Ghafa Quote designed by my favourite @kitaabee.keera (Check her on Instagram!!)
🌟 A book badge inspired by Arya Stark !
🌟 A t-shirt Quoting from Sarah J Maas book , the queen of YA Fantasy.
🌟annnnnnd Wreck This Journal by author/illustrator Keri Smith – sure to put you off of social media for a while and give work to the right part of your brain
🌟 All in all put together by our Wonder Woman Papiya, the curator of Books n Beyond box.

Hello, hope people are still reading this blog. 😀
I'm here with an unboxing of my favourite Indian book box 'Books n Beyond'. The July theme was 'Dreams And Wishes' and it was nothing short of dreamy !

The box contents are everything related to the theme and they were either things in wanted n wished for in a long time. Like for instance, this beautiful dream catcher ❤️.
The Book of the month was announced along with the theme because it was an imported hardcover edition and the exact number of orders was required. That aside, how gorgeous is the BOOK!!!!!

The entire box contents are as follows:
🔮The beautiful BOTM – Strange the Dreamer
🔮Dream catcher
🔮Hand of the King pin inspired from GoT
🔮notebook based on the theme
🔮two bookmarks
🔮a feather pen/ quill

Ministry of Magic – Books n Beyond Box unboxing

Hola ! I’m so sorry for taking my blog for granted. I got slammed with too much work and I couldn’t read even a single book in May. I have pending e-galley reviews and book box unboxing posts. This one in particular is the Harry Potter special edition – Ministry of Magic box from BooksnBeyond Box. You might have come across their name in my list of Indian subscription boxes.

So the bookings for this box was opened in February and I jumped right in after seeing the words ‘Harry Potter’. There was so much suspense and sneak peaks given for this amazing box that it drove everyone CRAZY!!

So first things first was the Sorting Hat email that was sent out to all subscribers. We were at a liberty to choose the House we wanted and i chose Gryffindor.

The box promptly arrived in Mid May as promised and in came a world of magic n surprises.

The first thing that bowled me over was the – Acceptance Letter from Hogwarts… signed by Prof. Minerva McGonagall. It was a detailed letter printed on beautiful vintage paper giving it even more rustic look. The next thing that surprised my husband was the magic wand from Blithering Cannon. I was equally stunned after seeing the Gryffindor fact sheet and the customized House Notebook in addition to my first mini FUNKO POP!!!!!. There was a time turner pendant as well which was the most difficult thing for me to capture in a pic 😛

The entire box contents are as follows :

  1. Customized Hogwarts acceptance letter detailing the things that we need to get before school starts.
  2. Hermione’s Time turner pendant
  3. Magic wand (pencil) from Blithering Cannon
  4. Mini Harry Potter FUNKO POP keychain
  5. Customized Harry Potter quote mugIMG_4212
  6. Gryffindor House facts card and customized House notebook
  7. Customized Map of Marauder/HP quote (double sided) bookmark
  8. Customized Daily Prophet bookmark
  9. One way ticket from Platform 9 3/4
  10. Diary Milk Lickables
  11. BOTM – Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

 

Suffice to say, Books n Beyond Box did justice to the theme and the cost of the box. I totally recommend this book subscription service for Indian bibliophiles.

Story Trunk MAY Unboxing

So y’all know I was squealing with delight when I ordered the ACOWAR box few months back!. To say I was impressed with its contents is an understatement. I’ve ben ordering so many book boxes recently and I loved all of them, but truth be told, I’m a 16 year old soul living in a body of 20+ married woman and eventhough I like reading YA still, my love for all things teenage-ish stops at that, i guess. Most of the boxes have been giving out stuff like art prints which I don’t think are of much use to me. Some even send out 2 or more art prints which I’m just stacking in a box.

So Story Trunk’s box had nothing of such prints, espcially the April box which i forgot to do an unboxing post, had three books and two bookish badges and a bookish cushion/throw pillow cover. See, it’\s more about books and still includes goodies.

Now coming to the ACOWAR box, the contents were minimal but still had more value than the cost of the box.

  • BOTM – A court of wings and ruin by Sarah J Maas, obviously (Along with the map)
  • A bookish candle featuring the Night Court from Whispering Flames.
  • A lip balm – based on Starfall – that smells like heaven by Kool & Co.
  • A beautiful handmade soap in the shape of Illyrian wings by Cape of Good soap.

Nothing unnecessary. And totally worth the money!!

So how do you prefer your subscription boxes? More goodies, less books or Value for money?

Tiny haul from The Comical Cyanide

I ABSOLUTELY love greeting cards.. There’s so much more love in it than text messages and there was a time I used to collect Hallmark cards 😛 My father was walking abroad for some years and he used to send me cards and during school my friends showered me with so many that I still have them safely inside a bag at home.

Slowly this beautiful form of sending love is disappearing and I dont remember the last time I got a card in these past 7 years..So when i chanced upon The Comical Cyanide’s Instagram page I was so sooooo happy on seeing those funny little cards. \The cards are cheap but look really great and their quality is so good. I didn’t want to part away with them by sending to someone so I just bought it for my husband. 😛

You get FREE SHIPPING for all the orders!!!

So here’s what I received from Manasi from The Comical Cyanide…

How adorable are these two.. There’s so much more in her shop.   Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

The cards are priced from Rs.85. And the main themes are food and HARRY POTTER!!!

Go get them for yourselves or gift someone 🙂
