Another Saturday, another unboxing blog and this week we have a long overdue unboxing of our Magic Potions February box for you.
We had so much fun putting this box together (can you tell?). Both of us here at Book Box Club HQ are huge Harry Potter fans, so we really felt like we could indulge our inner potions masters when researching goodies for February! We are so excited for everyone to read the featured read too; it features one of the most detailed and richly described fantasy worlds that we’ve come across for ages and we can’t wait to discuss it with our members and the author at book group.
So now, without further ado, it’s time for the unboxing…
Shadowscent by P. M. Freestone: Escape to the ancient desert land of Aramtesh, a beautifully described fantastical world, where a poor village girl and a royal bodyguard are about to embark on an epic quest, led by their noses… Can Rakel’s talent for fragrances lead her to the scent which will awaken a poisoned prince?
Clubhouse Invite: Join us in the apothecary (aka The Clubhouse) for an unashamedly bookish chat about our fantastical featured read, with special guest author P. M. Freestone.
Dahkai Flower Rollerball Perfume by Suski Scents: Dot this sweet and spicy perfume on your pulse points and soak up some serious desert vibes. Inspired by the fictional Dahkai flower from Shadowscent, this exotic essence is guaranteed to soothe your senses and leave you smelling magical! www.suskiscents.com
Potions Master Take-out Cup with Artwork by Fable & Black: Enjoy the magic potion of your choice in this exclusive reusable cup, inspired by the ultimate potions master, Severus Snape! www.fableandblack.co.uk
Alice in Wonderland Necklace by Literary Galaxy: Wear this tiny glittery vial around your neck (please do not drink it!) and be amazed at your ability to fit through the tiniest of doors (à la Alice)! www.etsy.com/uk/shop/LiteraryGalaxy
Magical Chocolatey Potion by Kernow Chocolate: Enjoy a freshly brewed cauldron full of magical chocolatey potion with this orange-infused hot chocolate spoon. www.kernowchocolate.co.uk
Apothecary Bookplates by Book Box Club: Personalise your spell books with our exclusive potions-inspired bookplates.
Bookish extras: Discover these brilliant new YA reads (and then add the pin badges to your denim jacket), with thanks to our friends at Walker Books & Penguin Random House.
We had so much fun creating these beautiful items with so many very talented people this month and we’d like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped make this box magical!
We’d also like to thank our members for sharing your unboxings with us. Seeing how much you guys enjoy your boxes is always one of the highlights of our month and we feel so lucky to have so many talented photographers, bloggers and vloggers in our club.
