Autumn is finally here…the temperature is slowly creeping down, the trees are shedding amber coloured leaves and Halloween is nearly here. To honour one of my favourite months of the year, Wildest Dreams book box have given their October box a spooktacular theme- We are Monsters. So what does this monster edition of the book box contain? Let’s check it out…
First and foremost, we have this month’s book and it would be an understatement to say I am particularly excited about this one. The Boneless Mercies by April Genevieve Tucholke sounds like a dark and suspenseful tale:
Frey, Ovie, Juniper, and Runa are Boneless Mercies – death-traders, hired to kill quickly, quietly and mercifully. It is a job for women, and women only. Men will not do this sad, dark work.
Frey has no family, no home, no fortune, and yet her blood sings a song of glory. So when she hears of a monster slaughtering men, women, and children in a northern jarldom, she decides this the Mercies’ one chance to change their fate.
But glory comes at a price …
Now that sounds like my kind of Young Adult novel and has been placed high up on my ever growing to be read pile…a perfect October pick. But along side the books in these boxes, there is always an epic selection of bookish goodies as well and this month is no exception. Alongside this twisted tale, there is a Vampire Diaries inspired bath bomb courtesy of Pretty Suds. The bath bomb contains patchouli, vanilla, notes of rose absolute, orange and jasmine and it smells divine! According to the label, releasing it into my bath will unleash the darkest of souls so I am very excited to see what happens when I plonk it in my bath! Keep an eye out on my Instagram for a video and picture of the results!
Next, we have another delicious blend of tea by Rosie Lea Teas. The ‘It’s a Monster’s World tea’ inspired by ‘This Savage Song’ is a caramelised pumpkin tea…yes you read that right. As I sit watching the trees blow in the wind outside surrounded by flickering candles and the smiling faces of my pumpkins and other Halloween decorations, I literally cannot think of anything more perfect to drink!
But it doesn’t stop there my ghoulish guys and gals…there is also a bloody syringe pen, perfect for writing down a tale of horror or for simply writing your shopping list (don’t forget the sweets for the trick or treaters) and as a little extra surprise, my very own Halloween tricky treat in the form of a pair of candy eye balls! They did not last long after I photographed them and they were yummy! Thanks guys!
Overall, this is by far my favourite box from Wildest Dreams…every item screams Halloween (one of my favourite times of year) and I am super excited for the book. My rep period with this company will be coming to an end shortly and I am genuinely gutted! With all honesty, each box has been a wonderful gift to receive through the mail. If you are looking for a book subscription box, I really recommend this one! They are well chosen, nicely packaged, great value for money and a joy to open each month! Thank you for having me guys- you rock!!
