2018 is almost done and dusted and what a year it has been! Over the last twelve months we have:
1.) Sent our members twelve fantastic featured reads! We’ve journeyed under the sea, into the future, on an epic hike, to fantasy lands, out into space and on many many more adventures with our brilliant YA reads!
2.) Created twelve jam-packed boxes stuffed with bookish goodies! We’ve worked with some amazingly talented small businesses and craftspeople to create unique homeware, stationery, candles, bookmarks and surprises aplenty.
3.) Hosted twelve brilliant book groups! We’ve introduced our members to some of YA fiction’s most exciting and friendly authors, discovered behind-the-scenes info, exclusive content and made lots of new, like-minded bookish buddies.
4.) Grown! We feel so lucky to have welcomed lots of lovely new members to our club this year. We’ve also moved out of Libby’s living room and hired a packing dream team to prepare and post your boxes each month, revamped our website, created beautiful new blue boxes and added a bookish merch shop to our site! Thank you to everyone who has played a part in making Book Box Club bigger and better this year!
Now, we’re raring to go for another twelve months of being unashamedly bookish. Bring on 2019! This January we are kicking off the new year in style, so if your resolution is to read more brilliant books then we’ve got your back!
Our theme for January 2019 is STORYTELLERS! Prepare for a box that is perfect for lovers of fine fiction and budding authors everywhere!
Our January read is a passionate reimagining of the life story of one of England’s most radical and creative writers. Based on real characters from history, this gorgeous hardback is a whirlwind of rule-breaking romance, gothic vibes and scandalous behind-the-scenes dramas. These are the stories of the storytellers, in all their passion, glory and disarray!
The book will be gift-wrapped with a signed book plate from the author and – as a special treat to kick off 2019 – we’re sending you our January read weeks ahead of its official release date, meaning that Book Box Club members will get to devour this YA novel before anyone else!
All members will be invited to meet the author at our online book group and Book Box Club subscribers will also a receive a curated selection of exclusive goodies inspired by some of fiction’s finest storytellers including an exclusive (and very useful) item designed by one of our favourite bookish creators Literary Emporium.
Finally, we are excited to reveal that:
Our January Storytellers box will feature an exclusive bookish fabric item featuring an illustration by… LAURA CROW
Golden oldie Book Box Club members might remember that we worked with Laura waaaaay back in March 2017 when we included her beautiful, framed time turner print in our Time Travel themed box and now we are thrilled to have the opportunity to include one of her unashamedly bookish illustrations on a fabric item that writers, readers and creative sorts are sure to LOVE! To find out more about Laura and her work check out her etsy shop and give her a follow on Instagram.
We have a very limited number of STORYTELLERS boxes left so subscribe now to make sure that you don’t miss out on the fun.
We also offer a PURELY BOOKS option to those of you who love the idea of receiving a brilliant YA read in the post and joining an exclusive online book group, but who’d rather give the bookish goodies a miss. Remember all postage to the UK is completely free, but we send our boxes and parcels all around the world so do check our FAQ page for international shipping costs.
Right, it’s time for us to get back to our desks and continue our quest to make your 2019 boxes the most unashamedly bookish parcels ever! There are so many amazing books coming out and we already have a long list of exciting plans on the agenda. We can’t wait to get started!
Enjoy the rest of the 2018 everyone and a very happy new year to you all!
Lots of love,
Libby and Kate
