Fellow survivors! Grab your emergency gear and prepare for apocalyptic adventures aplenty! Our April theme will be THIS RAVAGED WORLD and will celebrate the heroes (and bandits!) battling to save the planet and dodge disaster.
BOOK ONE is set in a bustling capital city on the brink of being swallowed by a terrible flood. When a powerful leader abandons her position, her young maid servant is thrust into her place, where a world of politics, lies and big decisions beckons. But can this unlikely heroine, save the people, pets (!) and world she loves so dearly, before water bursts through the city walls?
BOOK TWO is an action-packed tale about a future England where floods, gunfights and monsters have created a dangerous land. In this strange new world (think wild west meets dystopia!) the fates of two unforgettable outlaws collide. Suddenly a runaway serial criminal finds herself saddled with a new partner in misconduct: a seemingly hapless boy companion, guarding dark secrets of his own…
Our featured reads are both stunning, new release YA paperbacks, filled with gutsy characters, apcoalyptic vibes and dark humour! If you love Dystopian fiction like Red Rising, Handmaid’s Tale and The Hunger Games – you will adore this action packed box.
As ever, both of our featured reads will arrive beautifully gift-wrapped and each will be accompanied by a signed bookplate from the author.
Our April box will be crammed with exclusive goodies designed to pamper our members and to be kind to our own ravaged world! This month we’re bringing you utterly gorgeous eco-friendly gifts created by brilliant artists and small businesses. You’ll feel treated and empowered to continue your own fight to become more sustainable! How cool is that? Standby for a supplier reveal very soon!
April members will be invited to join us in our online Clubhouse for book group/apocalypse survival planning. Here, you’ll get the chance to chat with both of the authors of our featured reads, ask your questions about this month’s books (or pretty much anything else) and make new unashamedly bookish friends! Emergency book group snacks at the ready!
If you love the idea of brilliant new reads and membership to an exclusive author book group, but bookish extras aren’t your thing, you can still join in the fun.
Check out our PURELY BOOKS subscription. Our books-only parcels include the same great featured read and membership to our awesome online book group, just without the extra themed accessories.
All February Purely Books members will receive BOTH of our featured reads.
It is now possible to purchase our Purely Books parcels on a one-off basis. Head to Our Shop to find out more.
April THIS RAVAGED WORLD boxes and Purely Books memberships are available from our Subscriptions Page now. As ever, we only have a limited number of boxes available so get yours before they all disappear!
Existing Book Box Club members can relax, we’ve already got your April themed bookish parcel set aside and we’ll be sending it to you around April 15th, unless you tell us not to before renewal day on March 25th.
What do you think of our THIS RAVAGED WORLD theme? We would be so grateful if you’d help spread the word about our April box far and wide. You’ll find all the theme info over on our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages. We love welcoming new members to our bookish gang!
A big thanks goes out to our resident artist Ali Jo Art for creating the gorgeous artwork to accompany this month’s theme reveal.
Thanks for reading everyone!
Love, Libby, Kate and Kirsty
