I really enjoyed my first ShelfLove Crate (August 2018, 'Unlikely Heroes', this is an overdue review) I did order it thinking it had a different book than it did but I still really enjoyed the box and I'm looking forward to reading the book. My favourite item is the Groot popsocket! I'd love to see more popsockets in book subscription boxes! The Doctor Who mug is also epic. My whole family loves Doctor Who (though I haven't watched for a long time) and this mug is so big and cozy that it now belongs with the family mugs for everyone to get use out of it. 😊 . I think this company has really great curation and look forward to ordering more boxes from them. You can check out my unboxing flatlay and keep an eye out for the February 'Warrior Woman' unboxing over on my Bookstagram @bookie_becca.
I liked the sound of the September 2018 'Sister Who Slay' theme but wasn't 100% sure if it was something I'd want and given how expensive shipping is, so I held off ordering. When the unboxings started coming out I honestly wasn't too fussed about it but the longer I looked the more I wanted it and so... I ordered it from the past items shop (honestly this is a big thing for me, I do it a lot!) I'm so happy to have an edition of Seafire, I had thought I might get it in another box in September but I was wrong and I had been kind if disappointed so that definitely played a part in my buying it. There are a few things I wasn't too fussed about, the sticky notes, the LOTR art print, the keychain and the bath bomb, but I really love the bracelets, the candle, the Archeron sisters woodmark and the Lunar Chronicles badges! So like, about half/half.
I love Unicorn Crate, I've had two boxes (both from past items shop) from them now and I think they're high quality and have good content/curation. (you can find my flat-lay unboxing photos on my Bookstagram - @bookie_becca)
I have been getting this box for years, they have a ton of options to suit every price range. Sometimes I can't afford to get the box (I have the four book option) every month but they have a skip month option so I don't have to unsubscribe! Seriously, I love this box, you always get signed books, author swag and an extra little sweet treat! What's not to love! Highly recommend!
