In dark times, Book Box Club is here to spread some good cheer. This week, we’ve already launched our brand new subscription box for 8-12 year olds (check out TALES BY MAIL here!) and now we have our May theme reveal for you…
This theme has been months and months in the planning. We are so excited to include the SIGNED HARDBACK featured read. It’s by one of our favourite authors OF ALL TIME and is simply stunning inside and out.
So, let’s reveal the theme!
Hogwarts rules that you should never tickle a sleeping dragon, but they didn’t say anything about cramming him/her inside a book box! Our theme for May will be DANGERS AND DRAGONS and is inspired by fictional fire-breathers and winged wreakers of havoc!
Our featured read for May is a hotly-anticipated, stunning hardback by one of our favourite authors! It follows a young girl who discovers her destiny is irrevocably linked to the dragon her father has hired to help on the family farm. Embroiled in a world full of undercover assassins, extremist cults and ancient prophecies, she is forced to trust her new fire-breathing friend to keep her darkest secret.
This action-packed story is unlike any we’ve read. It has all the badass ‘save the world’ vibes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the small-town prejudices of To Kill a Mockingbird and the unlikely friendships of The Raven Cycle.
This new release YA read will arrive beautifully gift-wrapped -and as a special treat – will be SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.
Book Box Club subscribers will also receive a curated selection of dragon-themed bookish goodies. As ever, we’ve put together a box crammed with bespoke gifts created by small business and craftspeople and inspired by some of our favourite fictional fire-breathers. Standby for a supplier reveal soon…
All of our members will be invited to join us for a book group in our online Clubhouse. You’ll get the chance to chat with the author of our featured read, ask your questions about this month’s book (or pretty much anything else) and make new bookish friends! Warning: no dragons allowed!
If you love the idea of a brilliant new read 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.
It is now possible to purchase our Purely Books parcels on a one-off basis. Check out Our Shop to find out more.
May DANGERS & DRAGONS 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, your subscription guarantees you a DANGERS & DRAGONS themed bookish parcel. We’ll be sending you yours around May 15th, unless you tell us not to before renewal day on April 25th.
**Please note our postage prices have now been updated in line with our announcement regarding tracked postage and will effect all renewals. For more info click here.
What do you think of our DANGERS AND DRAGONS theme? We would be so grateful if you’d help spread the word about our May box across the book-loving land. 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.
Love, Libby and Kate xx
