It’s hereeeee. TheBookishbox’s fantasy friendships has officially arrived! What was great about this box is that I didn’t even get notified it had shipped, it had just arrived — what an awesome surprise!
Anyway, this box’s theme was Fantasy Friendships and we were told if we were fans of Lord of The Rings, Harry Potter and A Court of Thorns and Roses we would really enjoy this box. I mean, I love all those things so I figured I would give it a try — especially knowing that I’m going to skip the March Box — Cover Lust.
The box this month had some really cool stuff but I’m starting to think I’ll have to give TheBookishBox a break beyond March. It’s not that I don’t like the stuff but for $30+ a month, I’m not sure the value of the box is really worth that.
I was really excited for the LOTR luggage tag (by The Bookish Shop), I definitely need another one but I can’t use the bath bomb (by Pure Poetry Cosmetics)– I’m allergic so that will be going to a friend.
It’s not that some of the stuff wasn’t awesome, in fact, when I first pulled some out of the box I was excited but then I started looking at everything and wasn’t really sure what to do with it all. Never a good sign — I might try and do a giveaway, so be ready for that!
I have to admit, this book cover is gorgeous, it’s definitely one of those books I would have picked up because of the cover. It also sounds really good. Another YA Fantasy I’m excited to read. You got a bookplate with it and a note from the author.
I do like really like these prints by Gabriella Bujdoso but I’m not going to do anything with it until I get all my prints in order and figure out how to display them all. The wand was so cool, I was so excited when I opened it until I saw how long it is. I can’t put that on a keychain (by The Bookish Shop)! I might use it as a Christmas Ornament which means again, it’s just hanging out in storage.
The Bookish Shop is doing two new things a month in their boxes — a doodle of the them (by Doodles by Christina), which can definitely be fun on those nights I’m bored. The other is the Calendar Print (by Hey Atlas Creative) which is actually a really cute idea — and something I can use.
Other items was the Leviosa Bookmark by The Bookish Shop which is a fun change from paper bookmarks but feels a little flimsy (hopefully it lasts). The ACOTAR pin (by Ink and Wonder) is cute, but I have so many of these themes that I was meh on it as well.
That concludes the February Box, I’m happy I’m taking a break for the next month (and maybe the next one). What did you guys think of this unboxing?
