Happy Sunday and happy theme reveal day bookish buddies! The time has come to reveal our theme for August 2019, and we think you that you’re going to love the action-packed read and glorious goodies that we’ve put together for you this month…
As soon as we got on our hands on early copies of this brilliant book (and got completely whisked away by the epic world-building), we knew we’d found our featured read for August. It’s gritty, imaginative, and stars a gang of tough characters, who will play on your mind long after you turn the final page.
Before we give the game away (!) let’s introduce the theme.
You might have already heard the news: from this day forward Book Box Club theme reveals will have an exciting new look. We’ve teamed up with the very talented Alicia Jo who will create original theme art for our theme reveals each month. We first discovered Ali’s gorgeous artwork way back 2017 when she entered our first illustration competition, of course she was one of the winners and we’ve loved collaborating with her and following her gorgeous artwork ever since (who could forget the gorgeous mug that she designed for our August box last year?). Now, we are so excited to have Ali on board as our official theme artist!
So, without further ado…
Introducing our August 2019 theme…
Dust off your duelling pistols and get your game face at the ready! This August, our theme will be LET THE GAMES BEGIN and will celebrate dangerous tournaments, vicious victories and our favourite fictional game players.
Our August read is a new release, fiercely competitive urban fantasy novel.
Set in a vivid, underground world, our featured book follows a young girl, who is struggling to keep her dangerous special powers a secret. Soon she finds herself embroiled in a deadly tournament, where the stakes are high and surviving to the bitter end is the least of her worries!
This magical fight club is packed with intense training sessions, epic battles, super-human allies and plenty of inner turmoil. If you’re a fan of The Mortal Instruments, X-men and The Young Elites then you are sure to love this thrilling read!
This stunning YA hardback will be beautifully gift-wrapped (to make your unboxing feel like a real treat) and accompanied by an exclusive bookplate signed by the author.
There will be Goodies!:
All Book Box Club members will be treated to a selection of exclusive bookish goodies, designed by small businesses and talented artists. Whether you’re partial to a spot of golden snitch chasing, the queen’s croquet or the game of Caraval; you are sure to love the unique items that we’ve curated especially for our August subscribers. Keep your eyes peeled for some sneaky peeks and supplier reveals coming very soon!
All subscribers will also receive a personalised invitation to join us for our members-only online book group. You’ll have the chance to chat directly to the author of our August read and ask her your questions. Plus you’ll get to hang out with our other lovely members and make new bookish friends… some bookish game playing is also likely!
