New year, new unboxing! Here’s the first Book Box Club box of 2019 \o/

Book Box Club sends you one new YA release each month along with 4 -6 bookish goodies that fit that month’s theme. Every box comes with an invitation to the online Book Box Club book group, which hosts a monthly chat with the author of the selected book. 

(Sidenote: My best friend bought me a Book Box Club subscription for my birthday, because she is the best and knew how sad I was to have to unsubscribe (ah, finances) so this post is entirely thanks to Tora, the best best friend a Moog could have <3)

January’s theme was Storytellers – let’s get into it!

Is this a super late Book Box Club unboxing? Yes! But we’re doing it anyway! I think this box is my favourite subscription box I’ve ever received, and, even if it’s been more than two months since it was sent out, I still want to yell about how wonderful it is.

ALSO! Book Box Club have just launched their new shop! If you want any of the items in this post, you can take a look here to see if the individual item or the whole box is available 😀

Time for another unboxing! This is the August Book Box Club box, and the theme was Tech Tribes.*

*I am never super comfy using the word tribe, because of the colonial and other negative connotations involved when not being used by Native American people about themselves. While I am a white person and can’t speak with any authority on the impact of the term, I want to listen when people of colour speak to that effect. Wikipedia has a quick overview and there’s a transcript of an NPR conversation about the term here. (This note all paraphrased as I understand it.)

Processed with VSCO with q8 preset

The lovely Hannah at Courage and Kindness has run a Disney-themed Halloween gift exchange for the past couple of years, which is frankly such a gr9 idea. It combines so many of my interests! Disney! Spooky things! Presents! I only found Hannah’s blog after last year’s exchange so when it rolled round again this year, I was like YES. YES MY TIME IS HERE. I CAN BE A HALLOWEEN DISNEY GIFTING FAIRY!

You can learn more about the way the exchange works here, and I highly encourage you to go check out Hannah’s blog in general – it’s gorgeous, sweet, and full of really lovely Disney content and aesthetics.

My parcel arrived during a week I was signed off work sick, which was a little extra touch of cheering magic. Like, who doesn’t love getting presents when they’re feeling rundown? THIS MOOG CERTAINLY DOES. My gift came from @kerri_dangit, who sent such lovely things! Let’s get into it.
