Fantasy Lands Unboxed

Thanks to @hannahreadstoomuch for this fantastic photo

 

Wow, what a week it’s been! Book Box Club HQ has seen a whirlwind of researching, reading, planning, (boring important paperwork) and most importantly preparing your November boxes to go out in the post!

Now though, it’s time to share with you all of the gorgeous goodies that we included in our October box! We were so excited to be able to create a FANTASY LANDS theme because we both have a weakness for a good old-fashioned fantastical adventure story and the the featured read at the centre of this box, is so much more than that! As soon as we heard those magical words “Narnia Vibes” – we were both sold and we knew we had to share this brilliant book with our unashamedly bookish members.

So without further ado… bring on the unboxing!
