Illumicrate Unboxing!

“Chocolate is a substance worth existing for”

-C.G. Drews, A Thousand Perfect Notes 

Hi everyone! Today I’m going to be unboxing the super special May Illumicrate box. The theme was Hidden Talents and it was extra-fabulous, so look away now if you don’t want to be spoiled!


So first up, the main reason I was really excited for this book is this gorgeous, special edition of A Thousand Perfect Notes by one of my faveeees, C.G. Drews, with exclusive sprayed edges, a signed bookplate, and bookmark. (Side note: You all NEED to get your hands on this one ASAP.)

Next up, was this It Is Your Time book sleeve, exclusively designed by @risarodil and inspired by Black Panther (yay!), which I was so thrilled to find inside this box as I LOVE book sleeves and you can never have too many!

And then there was this Camp Half-Blood enamel pin, inspired by Percy Jackson and exclusively designed by @fableandblack, which is sooo cute!

One item I haven’t seen before in a book box but I LOVED, was this super adorable snack box (I mean, I guess you could use it for other things but why wouldn’t you use it for snacks?!) inspired by Fangirl and exclusively designed by @aliceoseman.

Next up, were these Infernal Devices tarot-style cards of Tessa, Will, and Jem, that I am low-key obsessed with. An exclusive design by @taratjah, I love getting tarot styled cards in boxes!

Next up are these lovely stainless steel page markers that were an exclusive design by @anotherstudio_ and are inspired by The Last Airbender, which I’ve never seen, but I always love getting bookmarks and these are really nice!

Next up were the extras, including an ARC of Light Years by Kass Morgan, which looks really intriguing and I can’t wait to read it! We also got little extras (postcards, bookmarks, and samplers) of Grey Sister, How do you Like Me Now? From Twinkle with Love, I was Born for This, and A Reaper at the Gates.

I absolutely adored this box, especially the special copy of ATPN, the tarot-style cards, and adorable snack box, but everything was amazing! I can’t wait to see what the next Illumicrate theme will be!
