Book Box Guesses: September 2019

It’s no secret that I’m a book box lover. Part of the fun is trying to guess the upcoming month’s books (even if I don’t subscribe). Here’s a round up of what I think will be in the upcoming month’s boxes. I’ll update this post as new themes are revealed.

If you’d like to play along, drop your guesses in the comments and I’ll add them to the post!

I STRONGLY urge you to research a box before buying or subscribing. There’s been some shady behavior lately and you don’t want to get caught up in it.

You can add it on when you subscribe or purchase an August box that contains it. 🌌 How many books have you read where there is a fight for power? What about when a character receives all the power they have ever wanted, but it came with many consequences?

A unique magic system, mysterious disappearances, high stakes and a dash of romance will enchant you from page one. 🌌 The book will be SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR! You can expect an author letter to accompany it 😁. 🌌 This whimsical book is perfect for fans of Nocturna, Ace of Shades and Wonder Woman! 🌌 Fandoms being represented include DIVERGENT, CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE, A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC, RED RISING and either WARCROSS or THREE DARK CROWNS (vote in our Instagram Story “Fandom Showdown”)! 🌌 Our Beacon Booksleeves have moved to bi-monthly! Odd number months will not include sleeves. Doing this increases our budget so we can include more items that we know you all will fall in love with. September’s box includes some awesome wearable and usable items! Stay tuned for reveals! 🌌 September boxes are available August 11th at 12:00 AM EST for subscriptions and single purchases! If you are a current subscriber, do not fret as your subscription will renew on August 21st ✨. ⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️ Graphic designed by the always-amazing @littlebearries ⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️

Spearcraft Book Box: Serpent & Dove

Unicorn Crate: Tiger Queen

View this post on Instagram

Theme announcement! As mentioned in yesterday’s big news (see link in profile), this September box will only be available by single purchase and you have until end of day August 8th (10 days) to get one! . . The September Unicorn Crate theme is SHIFTING SANDS. This one is inspired by fantasy books (mostly YA fantasy) that take place in desert landscapes. This one is so different than anything I’ve done before! I don’t have every last item finalized yet for this one, so let me know your favorite desert-y books in the comments below! . . ⭐ The featured title in this box will be a hardcover standalone September release. It’s a YA fantasy adventure that tells the story of a fierce princess as she fights to save her mythical desert kingdom. It’s inspired by the well-known myth of The Lady and the Tiger. I had SO much fun journeying through this story with these amazing characters! And the desert itself is like a character in this one – harsh, and mysterious, and challenging. I knew instantly when reading this that I had to share it with you guys and create a box around it. There’s gangs of thieving desert boys, a tug of war around water shortages, a devious king, a fierce female protagonist, and unlikely allies! Pitched as being perfect for fans of Rebel of the Sands, The Wrath and the Dawn, and Cinder. Ages 13+ . . ⭐ This box will be filled with desert-related goodies! I’m thinking The City of Brass, A Crown of Wishes, Rebel of the Sands, The Wrath and the Dawn, We Hunt the Flame, A Thousand Nights etc… As mentioned before, not all the items for this box are set in stone yet, so let me know your favorite desert stories, I won’t be able to fit them all, but I do love hearing your faves! I have until the order window closes to finalize items. . . ⭐ SNEAK PEEK: I’m excited to be working with @fairytalebathco again! You might remember the awesome ‘Swan Sisters’ shower steamer for the March crates earlier this year? It’s going to be another great collab! . . Head to to shop! . . . #bookbox #yabookstagram #yabooks #fallbooks #yabookbox #bookboxlove #yafantasy #yafantasybooks #bookboxes #standalonebooks

  1. I’m so excited for the FairyLoot Box. The book sounds incredible and it’s one I’ve been eagerly waiting for!

    I love trying to figure out what books will be featured in boxes. Sometimes I can guess, but most of the time, I have absolutely no clue haha!


  2. I’ve never thought about guessing, good idea. The only one I get is fairyloot and if it is that book I will be happy. Last month was my first box. I also just read your warning post on being careful, I honestly went for this one since it was well published and never even thought to question it. I will be on the look out 🙂 Great post
