Illumicrate is a bookish subscription box based in the UK. It contains at least one book and lots of other bookish delights. It is a quarterly box that arrives in February, May, August and November.
This is the eight illumicrate box so far and they are now beginning to do special boxes around certain series – they’re currently doing a Grisha box.
I’m always super excited to get these not only for the books but for the amazing bookish goodies with it.
Spoilers ahead! Don’t read on if you haven’t opened yours yet…
Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo (exclusive edition)
I was really interested to see this in the box!
She will become one of the world’s greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. . . .
Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.
Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.
Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.
The Red Church Tea by T-ology (exclusive)
Now I LOVE tea so I cracked this open straight away. It’s based on The Red Church by Scott Nicholson which is a thriller. It tastes so yummy that I’m going to make a subscription once I’ve emptied my cupboard out a bit.
Shakespeare Zip Bag by Miss Phi (exclusive)
I loved the little bag we got a few boxes ago so I was thrilled to see this! It’s got a lovely quote on from Romeo and Juliet. I can’t wait to start using this.
Wisdom Journal by Hey Atlas Creative (exclusive)
I’m not going to lie, I don’t particularly like this item. I like the quote on the outside which is from The Lightening Thief but it has dots inside on the pages which hurts my eyes a bit.
Alethiometer Coaster by Hannah Hitchman Art (exclusive)
I love tea and my tea needs a coaster. This is just perfect. It’s the Alethiotmeter from Philip Pullman’s Dark materials.
Book Money Jar and Sticky Bookmarks by blossom Books.
The money jar is my favourite item from the box, I just love it! I has a lovely spot on my bookshelf on my TBR shelf.
Extras: Bookmarks, Moxie badges and an ARC of Nyxia by Scott Reintgen
It’s always fantastic to have TWO books.
Emmett Atwater isn’t just leaving Detroit; he’s leaving Earth. Why the Babel Corporation recruited him is a mystery, but the number of zeroes on their contract has him boarding their lightship and hoping to return to Earth with enough money to take care of his family.
Before long, Emmett discovers that he is one of ten recruits, all of whom have troubled pasts and are a long way from home. Now each recruit must earn the right to travel down to the planet of Eden–a planet that Babel has kept hidden–where they will mine a substance called Nyxia that has quietly become the most valuable material in the universe.
But Babel’s ship is full of secrets. And Emmett will face the ultimate choice: win the fortune at any cost, or find a way to fight that won’t forever compromise what it means to be human.
