Bad Girls Unboxed

 

Happy Saturday Bookish Friends!

Did you hear the news? This time next month Book Box Club will be two years old and we can’t wait to send you out an extra exciting box this September to celebrate this huge milestone (keep reading for more info on our INTO THE WILD September box). As we are in the mood for celebrating, we thought it was time to show you the contents of our Bad Girls themed June box.

As soon as we started reading this awesome book we knew that we had to share it with you all. Anyone who has already finished reading our June read will know it’s so gripping! Something about the format and the characters really had us hooked! We can’t wait to hear what you all thought of THAT ENDING and to discuss it in our Clubhouse book group at the end of the month.

We had so much fun finding items that celebrated some of the feistiest females in fiction including Bellatrix, The Queen of Hearts, Maleficent and Fatima Ro from our featured read! As ever, we’ve been overwhelmed by the talent and brilliance of the small businesses who have crafted goodies for our June box. We have had lots of lovely people help us make this box great and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank every one of them!

So without further ado…lets dive in to…
