Happy Friday, bookish friends!
As we speak, we, your cheery Book Box Club founders, are surrounded by a city of cardboard boxes and silver wrapped books. Yes, you guessed it; it’s packing week once again! We are just getting our Spells and Remedies boxes ready to go out in the post to our July members. We can’t wait for you to see what we have in store!
Speaking of exciting things in the pipeline… the time has come to announce our hotly-anticipated August theme to you all. And its a brilliant one! Without further ado, here it is in true Book Box Club tradition, click on the image below for the full August trailer…
So there we have it! Our August theme will be….FEARLESS FEMALES and its going to be fantastic!
Our featured read for August is one that we won’t forget in a hurry; this inspiring call-to-arms story is full of feisty feminists, political turmoil and true love and had us punching the air in girl power solidarity more than once. It’s a true celebration of feminism in YA fiction, which we’ll be sending to our members ahead of it’s publication date, so you’ll be amongst the very first readers! If you’re a fan of historical novels like Code Name Verity and the Book Thief, or love a bit of political uprising then this is the book for you!
And of course, we’ll be following up this incredible read with one of our lovely laid back members-only online book group meeting in The Clubhouse. There is so much we NEED to discuss with you guys about this book and we’re thrilled to confirm that the author of our featured read will also be on hand to answer all your questions about writing, reading, books and anything else that troubles your unashamedly bookish brain!
We are also delighted to tell you that you won’t find our featured read in any other subscription box, so book box addicts can rest easy!
Alongside the featured read this box will include lots of stylish handmade bookish goodies, with lots of homages to some of our favourite powerful female characters (I wonder if you can guess who will make a cameo?). Many of the items will be made exclusively for Book Box Club members and as always we can’t wait for your unboxings!
To join us head over to our website and subscribe. As ever, we only have a limited number of boxes available so sign up swiftly to avoid disappointment. If you’re already a Book Box Club member, you can relax, your subscription will automatically renew and we’ll send you your FEARLESS FEMALES box around August 15th, unless you tell us not to before July 25th.
Who else out there is a dedicated feminist? We’d love to hear about what you think of our feisty August theme over on our social media channels and we’d be so grateful if you felt inclined to share our video with your friends and followers (every little helps when it comes to spreading the Book Box Club message far and wide).
We hope you all enjoyed our teaser film this month, as usual thanks go to our resident filmmaker Hax Ahmet, photographer extraordinaire Tarik Ahmet and our beautifully bookish model Sophie! Did anyone spot a teensy cameo from your camera-shy Book Box Club founders in this one (cringe!)? Luckily after the filming was done cast and crew were rewarded by feasting on the featured picnic!
For more news on our August theme and lots more make sure you’re signed up to our newsletter (to sign up visit our website) and following us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
Have a lovely weekend, everyone!
Love, Libby & Kate
