Book Box Club HQ turned into a planning masterhub this weekend as we’ve been hard at work researching, brainstorming and chatting (and eating biscuits) about all of the exciting things we have in store for you in 2019! It’s been a Monday of putting lots of plans into action and it feels great!
Meanwhile, our packing team have been packing up your January Storytellers boxes ready to go out in the post early this week. We are so thrilled with how this box came together and we can’t wait until they start arriving at their new homes! Yay!
Last weekend we announced our fantastical February theme. If you missed the news our February theme will be MAGIC POTIONS and we just know you guys are going to love it! To get you in the magical mood we thought we’d share with you one of the very talented suppliers who we’ve teamed up with this February.
So without further ado, we are thrilled to announce that our MAGIC POTIONS box will include an exclusive item with artwork from one of our favourite bookish small bsuinesses. Introducing…
Stacey from Fable and Black is a Nottingham-based designer and creator. Her brightly coloured stationery, jewellery, accessories and homewares are all inspired by our favourite things – books! We fell in love with Fable and Black’s beautiful graphic style way back in December 2016 when we featured one of her gorgeous magical notebooks in our Magic by Night box and we’re so excited to be featuring one of her designs in our February box.
Our Magic Potions box will contain an exclusive item featuring a stunning illustration by Fable and Black and guess what?! It will be an item WE’VE NEVER INCLUDED INT A BOX BEFORE and it’s INSPIRED BY HARRY POTTER! We can’t wait for you all to see it!
If you’re already a subscriber, worry not! We have your February box set aside for you and we’ll be sending it your way around February 15th (unless you tell us not to before renewal day on January 25th!).
Or, if you’re yet to join us, here’s a quick reminder of everything we’ve told you about our fantastical February box so far:
The Book: With a richly described fantasy world, plus lashings of romance and drama aplenty, our atmospheric February read is the perfect antidote to the winter blues! It’s a thrilling quest through deserts, ancient cities and long forgotten forests to find an antidote to save a dying prince. If you are a fan of The Last Namsara, The Star Touched Queen and Ember in the Ashes you will love this featured read. This beautiful, shiny foiled paperback will arrive gift wrapped and accompanied by a book-plate, signed by the author.
The Goodies: We’ve had so much fun creating some really unique items to include in our MAGIC POTIONS themed box and have been working with some very talented people! In addition to a stunning item illustrated by Fable and Black there will be bookish goodies galore including ones inspired by Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland. Stay tuned for more info coming soon…
All members will also receive an invitation to our members only online book group! Our Clubhouse book group will transform into a potions dungeon where our special guest will be the author of our featured read, who is very excited to talk to you all and to answer your questions about her magical book.
Or opt for Purely Books: If you are unashamedly bookish, but bookish extras aren’t your thing, you can still join in the fun. Check out our PURELY BOOKS subscription. Our books-only memberships include the same great featured reads and membership to our awesome author book group, just without the extra themed accessories.

As ever, we only have a limited number of boxes available so get yours before they all disappear!
