Here I am, squeaking this in under the wire just before June hits. I actually received TWO book boxes from BBB this month, the normal May subscription box as well as their Starlight Celebration box, a special edition box for ACOFAS (you can see my unboxing here). The past several months, I have been kind of an “assistant rep” for BBB. What that means is I received a rep code to help promote their business, but I DO NOT receive these boxes for free. I am a subscriber and spend my own money in order to receive these boxes. That should tell you just how much I adore this box! If you have not checked them out yet, visit Beacon Book Box here at their website. You can use JEN10 until MAY 31ST for 10% off your box. HOWEVER, I did just enter their rep search to hopefully become a full rep for June and July, so if you want to give my instagram post some love, you can check it out here. 🙂
Let’s get down to the unboxing!
May’s theme was WHISPERS OF WANDERLUST, and the book was promoted as perfect for fans of The Hobbit, Paper Towns, and Turtles All the Way Down. I typically try to guess the book that’s included, and I actually was right this month – it’s one I had been looking forward to! Here’s what was included in the box:
Tube of Hot Chocolate inspired by Strange the Dreamer, created by A Chick Shabby Shop. I LOVE hot chocolate so I’m super excited to try this. Plus, Strange the Dreamer is quite possibly my favorite book of the year so far. I also think the tube was a really clever and cute idea! Something different that I hadn’t seen done before. It says:
Dream up something wild and improbable.
Lord of the Rings-inspired Travel Mug provided by Team Beacon Book Box. This was an exclusive item just for this box! Like I mentioned before, I love hot chocolate but I LIVE ON COFFEE so a travel mug is absolutely perfect for me. I almost never leave home without one, and I LOVE the quote on this mug – “Not all who wander are lost”.
Marauder’s Map Bookmark provided by SJWanderlandz. This might be my favorite item in here. I love a good bookmark and this is GORGEOUS. Not to mention, who doesn’t love Harry Potter? It’s also a really good sturdy material.
Bookmobile Park candle by Totally Wicked Candles. I actually haven’t read Bookmobile Park but this candle is super cute and smells wonderful. I love candles, so whenever one is included in a box, that’s a win for me.
Beacon Book Box pen provided by BBB. Beacon Book Box always makes sure to throw in a little gift just from them, which I think is such a great gesture. And who can’t use a pen?
And finally…. Love and Luck by Jenna Evans Welch. I was super excited to receive this book! I haven’t read Love and Gelato yet but it is currently sitting on my TBR shelf. Hopefully I should be getting to both of these soon!
And that’s it guys! That’s the May box! June’s theme is CORRUPTION IN THE COURT and you get TWO BOOKS in this box! Like I said, my code JEN10 is good through May 31st, so you can use it on the June box until then! I know you will love the team at Beacon Book Box as much as I do.
