Here at Book Box Club HQ we have a super fun (and businessy!) weekend planned. Your Book Box Club founders are once again on a plan-a-thon in Kate’s living room and we have chocolate shortbread on standby ready to tackle our to-do lists. Researching and discussing the bookish goodies to stash in our boxes each month is a long but exciting task, so we can’t wait to get cracking!
Now that all of your February Magic Potions boxes are now safely on their way to their new homes, we thought it was high time we shared with you all the items that we crammed into your January STORYTELLERS boxes. We had so much fun planning this theme and finding goodies to inspire all the budding writers out there! So without further ado, let’s get unboxing!
MONSTERS by SHARON DOGAR: Born to a revolutionary writer, Mary knows that she is destined to pen her own masterpiece. But before she can become the author famed for creating Frankenstein, she will be swept away into a world of scandalous storytellers and philandering philosophers…

We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the talented crafters, illustrators and small businesses who helped us to bring our STORYTELLERS box to life.
We’d also like to thank our January members for sharing all your unboxings with us. We have so much fun going through your photos, blogs and videos; which often involves us dancing around and squealing with excitement. You guys are amazing!
