Happy Saturday everyone! The UK weather might not be as spectacular as last weekend’s but don’t worry; we have an unboxing blog for you to help brighten your day a little bit!
The theme for our March box was DREAM TEAMS and was inspired by the amazing gang of character picked from history in our featured read. We always think of Book Box Club as our very own bookish dream team and with so many brilliant besties in YA we certainly weren’t short of ideas when we were brainstorming for this box!
So now, without further ado, it’s time for the unboxing…
Stolen Time by Danielle Rollins: Who are you going to call when your city has turned into a dystopian nightmare overtaken by earthquakes and floods? How about a kick-ass team of young adults plucked from history and primed for a rescue mission?! In the opening instalment of this explosive new trilogy, a teen dream team hop through time, space and the diaries of a perplexed professor. Can they solve the mystery of time travel and undo the fate of their doomed city?
Clubhouse Invite: Join the ultimate dream team and chat with our members about this month’s featured read in our cosy online Clubhouse. We’ll be joined by special guest Danielle Rollins. www.bookboxclub.com/the-clubhouse

221b Bath Bar by Ascent Bath & Body: Clamber in the tub with your favourite detectives. Sherlock & Dr. Watson may be the ultimate code cracking duo, but even they will be flummoxed by just how soft and silky your skin is after bathing with this smoky-scented, cocoa butter bath bar. “Elementary dear Watson!” www.ascenthandmade.com
