How can it be time to talk about our October theme already?! We’ve got an epic October box coming your way with a high drama, brand new YA read, a curated selection of unique bookish goodies, a fun and friendly online author book group AND a kick-ass theme!
If you’re ready for action, empowerment and vivid world-building, then our October read is going to blow your mind. We binge read this super-fast paced book over one sunny weekend, and barely stopped to draw breath until we turned the final explosive page.
Intrigued? The waiting is over! Let’s introduce the theme, with exclusive artwork by our fabulous resident artist, Ali Jo Art.
Saddle up book-lovers! It’s time to mount your trusty getaway stead and gallop into the sunset, with your enemies in hot pursuit!
This October, join us on a dangerous desert adventure. Our theme will be REBELS ON THE RUN and will celebrate some of fiction’s greatest escapes and most troublesome tearaways.
After accidentally killing a man, the feisty main characters of our featured read find themselves on the run with a bounty on their heads. Even if they can escape the law; inhospitable dust lands, vengeful ghosts and nightmarish memories of their past threaten to see them captured, dead or alive.
With a bold band of unlikely bandits and a fight for justice at its heart, our October book boasts some serious swashbuckle. But it’s also got menacing dystopian vibes (think Handmaid’s Tale or The Hunger Games) and a supernatural wild-west setting! Fans of action-packed fantasy, prepare to be hooked!
Our featured read for October will be a beautifully gift-wrapped paperback accompanied by an exclusive signed bookplate from the author.
There will be Goodies!:
We’ll be treating all Book Box Club members to a selection of goodies inspired by our favourite Rebels on the Run. Whether your preferred getaway is via Ford Anglia, trusty horseback or with a sprinkle of pixie dust- we’ve got you covered!
All items will be designed and created by fantastic small businesses and artists and will be super useful/gorgeous/delicious! Stay tuned for a supplier reveal very soon…
There will be an exclusive author book group:
Enter the Book Box Club Saloon aka our online Clubhouse, where you’ll get a 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!
