The Bookish Box Review - Fairy Tale Edition

What was in the mail this week? The latest Bookish Box! The Bookish Box (from Appraising Pages) is perfect for any bibliophiles out there who love literary goodies. Each month you'll receive a t-shirt and bookish treats based on a particular theme and your favourite reads.

This month's theme was fairy tales.

Cost - $29.99 USD. Shipping to Canada is $10.00.
There is also a no-shirt option for $18.99 if you'd prefer just the goodies, but I really do love the shirts. They are stylish, soft, and very unique. I'm a size large for reference.

What was inside the box??
The photo above shows a picture of the t-shirt that has quote from the book A Court of Midst and Fury by Sarah J. Mass. I've been seeing this book everywhere, and this quote really makes me want to read it soon!

Next was a Peter Pan necklace from Appraising Pages. Not really my style personally, but it will make a cute gift.

Next is a mug inspired by the book Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Created by Evie Seo, the mug image wraps around to both sides and has the quotation, "I would rather die because I betrayed them than live because I betrayed you." My friend Dani has been telling me for months to read this book, so now that I have a mug inspired by Cinder, it's even more motivating to finally pick up a copy.

Then there are post-it notes with the Walt Disney quotation, "Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age and dreams are forever." I can always use more post-it notes at work, so these are coming to school with me asap!

I saved my favourite for last. It's a hand-painted Beauty and the Beast bookmark from Lexy Olivia. This bookmark is so beautiful and every time I look at it I just get more and more excited for the new Beauty and the Beast movie coming out next year!!

This has been my second Bookish Box, and I think the value is fantastic. I'm not certain, but I estimate the retail value of the items to be about $55. I love that the items are a mix of new and old fairy tales, and that it also reminded me of a few books I've been meaning to add to my TBR pile.

If you're interested in signing up for The Bookish Box, you can check out their website. Next month the theme is "literary ladies". Fun!
