UNBOXING: Illumicrate August 2016

UNBOXING: Illumicrate August 2016

Since my next Illumcirate is on its way to me, I figured I should finally post my extremely tardy unboxing. I got this box just before I left for a month-long holiday and when I got back, I… I was lazy. Let’s be real.

UNBOXING: Illumicrate August 2016

This was my first ever Illumicrate and it was BEAUTIFUL. This is a quarterly box and it was jam-packed with goodies, including two books!

First, we have the book EVERYONE has raved about—NEVERNIGHT by Jay Kristoff! And it’s a hardback because of course it is. Just look how stunning the freaking cover design is?! A signed bookplate, art card and bookmark came in the box, and there’s also a special video from the author available for view through an included link.

The second book is a paperback of The Graces by Laure Eve. I’ve heard very mixed reviews about this story so it’s going to stay on my TBR for a while longer but that cover is just too gorgeous to deny. And it came with a signed bookplate, temporary tattoos and a letter from the author!

Next, we have exclusive coasters from Taratjah Art (check out their Society6 store!). I am honestly so in love with these designs because we have both the classic depiction of Harry, Ron and Hermione, and a design of them as older humans. Everything is beautiful. I may have shed a tear or two while staring at these. Don’t look at me. Also, Tara is behind some of my faaaaaaavourite A Court of Thorns and Roses art!

This Drink Me strawberry tea is an exclusive from Post Tea which smells LOVELY.

I’ve been rewatching Gilmore Girls lately so this exclusive In Omnia Paratus tote bag from Colorful Geekiness is perfection.

These colouring quotes from Ashley Poston are the last of the official items in the box, and theyr’re inspired by Six of Crows.

And JUST BECAUSE, there is some beautiful artwork inspired by the works of Pierce Brown.
