Fellow readers; hold on to your books… things are about to get brilliantly bizarre! Our theme for August is STRANGER THAN FICTION and will delve into wonderfully weird worlds, where the lines between fiction and reality are seriously blurry!
BOOK ONE is a thrilling tale of gritty gangs, time travel and surreal secrets. Set in contemporary South London, this super-fast paced novel switches between the narrative of a boy who begins to see glimpses of the future and a girl who suspects her new tutor may be hiding the key to her own past.
BOOK TWO is an addictive futuristic story of a coding whizz, who builds an extraordinary AI assistant. But soon, her high-tech buddy, reveals his desire for more than a life on the sidelines, he wants a body of his own, the chance to be human and to be her boyfriend. What will happen if she allows technology to take hold? BOOK TWO will be a LIMITED EDITION with gorgeous sprayed edges!
Both of our featured reads are stunning paperback novels, which will arrive with signed bookplates from the authors. If you’re a fan of Doctor Who, Black Mirror, Inception or Ready Player One, the books inside this box will blow your mixed up mind!
Book Box Club members will receive a curated selection of unique themed items created by brilliant small businesses and talented artists.
This month’s items will be inspired by some of fiction’s most reality-bending, mind-blowing and futuristic moments. Standby for a supplier reveal soon!
All members will be invited to join us for online Book Group, where you’ll get the chance to ask your questions to BOTH of the authors of our featured reads and make new bookish friends.
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 reads and membership to our awesome online book group, just without the extra themed accessories.
It is now possible to purchase our Purely Books parcels on a one-off basis. Head to Our Shop to find out more.
*Purely Books members will also receive TWO books in August.
August Stranger than Fiction 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 August themed bookish parcel set aside and we’ll be sending it to you around August 15th, unless you tell us not to before renewal day on July 25th.
