Rainbow Crate Unboxing: Paranormal Paramours September 2020

Hello book nerds! Seems like it’s been a while since my last unboxing post here, huh?

I tried not to avail book boxes because of a lot of recent shipping delays, plus life has been hectic these last few months that I wasn’t able to show the few ones that I received. But now I’m back with a new unboxing and it’s a special one! It’s my first ever rep box from Rainbow Crate!

Rainbow Crate is a new subscription box, focusing on queer books! Yes, queer books! How awesome is that? I loved their concept the minute I heard about them. I’ve been a subscriber since July, but then I made it to the rep team. I was so excited!

So here I am, about to show you the September box! Here are the contents!

Rainbow Crate September 2020 “Paranormal Paramours”

🌈 Gideon the Ninth glass tumbler
🌈 Timekeeper enamel pin
🌈 Our Bloody Pearl pillowcase
🌈 Monthly Collectible – Ox and Joe from TJ Klune’s Wolfsong
🌈 Featured e-book – The Key of Arcandus by Lauren Sefehik
🌈 Featured book – Cemetery Boys by @aidenschmaiden

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’ve got several awesome items here, but that Gideon the Ninth tumbler is so cool, it’s probably my favorite! And of course, I’m so happy to see Cemetery Boys as the featured book! It’s one of my favorite reads this year and it’s the perfect Halloween read! (See my review here!) Apart from the hardcover book, Rainbow Crate also has a featured e-book we can enjoy!

I couldn’t have been more proud and happier about this box! It was so good! How about you? What item caught your eye?

Illumicrate Unboxing: The Strength Within January 2020

I’m back with an unboxing book nerds!

It’s my second box from Illumicrate and they never disappoint! This box included two books and a Gideon the Ninth item! So y’all already know what made me get this box. And hey, if you think about it, it’s quite fitting. My first Illumicrate box is Armed and Dangerous which had Gideon the Ninth as the featured book! But anyway, here’s a closer look!

Magical Reads Crate Unboxing: Under the Sea November 2019

Hi book nerds! Time for me to unbox the November box from Magical Reads Crate!

Really surprised that the local post office managed to deliver this in less than two weeks. 😆 I can finally join in on the fun of our photo challenge! So, so thankful that MRC doesn’t have a specific date on their prompts. It means that even if you’re an International customer, you have the chance to join the challenge!

Magical Reads Crate Unboxing: Light and Dark October 2019

Hi book nerds! Long time no post! I’ve been busy reading, but today, I’m not here for a book review. I’m here for an unboxing!

It’s my first ever box from Magical Reads Crate as a rep! They, as well as my co-reps, have been so lovely and I’m so so glad to be a part of the team! The October “Light and Dark” box was great and I enjoyed unboxing it! (See my Instagram unboxing here!)

A little bit of a backstory: our post office sucks (what’s new 🤧). They received this box more than a week ago, but they only gave me the claim notice last Friday. It’s why it took so long to get here. But fortunately, it’s here now!

OwlCrate Unboxing: Fear the Night September 2019

Hi book nerds! Guess who has another unboxing? It’s me and my first ever Owlcrate!

I’ve always wanted to try OwlCrate and the September theme just sounded too good to pass up. Plus with my friend Shaked‘s encouragement, I had no reason not to.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It arrived last week of September, just in two weeks! I know right? What a shocker? I’m so used to packages from the US taking a month or more to get here. But it arrived, and I adored it! These are the contents:
