Another book box Kelly?
Yes, yes indeed. However when Wildest Dreams Book Box was announced, I knew I couldn’t resist. Run by a book blogger and youtuber, Wildest Dreams is a YA themed subscription box that is packed full of goodies and of course a new book every month. The big selling point for me? It’s actually affordable.
While I love FairyLoot (and am partial to the odd box here and there), I just can’t afford to make it a regular expense. Most other book boxes on the market seem to be a similar price too. A treat, but a rare one by necessity. Happily – for me and my bank balance – Wildest Dreams comes in at a cheaper price. It costs £18 a month, which is less than I pay for my phone bill. You do get slightly less for the cost but the products that are in of a really high quality and full size. I still think that you get a LOT for your money.
The theme for February was Truth & Lies, which I was very excited about. It was also the first box that I was receiving since I somehow managed to miss January’s when it came out. You can only imagine how hyped I was!
And since I am so kind, I thought I would show you what was inside. If you don’t want any spoilers, you should probably look away now.
This is what I saw when I first opened up the paper inside the box itself. I immediately spied a Taken Moons candle that put a massive smile on my face.
Everything else needed a little more unpacking to work out what was what…
The mysterious test tube actually contains tea and ‘Veritaserum’ tea nonetheless. I loved the Harry Potter touch. This looks so pretty in its tube that I’m almost reluctant to try it however!
The striped pouch was home to some sweeties, which was a lovely little touch.
When I unpacked everything else, I also discovered a Harry Potter bookmark, some bags for the tea, the book itself and some extra information about the contents which I ignored until the very end. Can we also take a moment for how lovely the book packaging is? It’s so clean, chic and classy! It was a shame to rip into it but I was very glad that I did…
because inside was this month’s book. I’d never heard of The Truth and Lies of Ella Black but it certainly looks exciting! It’s all about a teenager who is thrust into a new scenario where she begins to discover secrets about her life – I’ll let you know what I think about it!
Excitingly, there was also a signed bookplate and a letter from the author inside.
I was so impressed by not only how much was inside this box for £18 but the quality of it all. I wonder what will be in next month’s box!
