Book Box Guesses: October 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’ll update as more boxes release themes.

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.

ATTENTION BOOKWORMS! It is time to announce our October box theme… EERIE EXPLORATIONS! 🎃 Team Beacon is thrilled to announce that this box will feature another CUSTOM, EXCLUSIVE DUST JACKET from the talented @kat_adara! This dust jacket will be for the third and final book in the CARAVAL trilogy, FINALE! Did you miss out on CARAVAL and LEGENDARY’s jackets? You can add them onto your order during the subscription process. 🎃 How many books have you read where the main characters go on some sort of adventure or quest? What about when a character discovers something that could put their life in danger? We are thrilled to announce that our October book is a dystopian novel that, ever since we heard about it, have been dying to include. Set in a near-future peaceful and prosperous version of Chicago, the news, internet and all information channels are controlled by the government. When the main character is handed a piece of paper with a word she does not know, she decides to investigate. This turns into a potentially deadly exploration that may be the reason why her mother was killed. I devoured this story and absolutely love the New York Times Bestselling Author who wrote it that we have worked with before. 🎃 The book will be SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR! You can expect an author letter to accompany it ☺️. 🎃 This epic book is perfect for fans of Scythe, George Orwell’s 1984 and Illuminae! 🎃 Fandoms being represented include ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD, PERCY JACKSON, SIGHTWITCH and the winner of our FANDOM SHOWDOWN – either THE RAVEN BOYS or THE GILDED WOLVES! 🎃 Beacon Booksleeves are back! October’s fabric hint is: SPOOKY and it is PERFECT for Halloween! 🎃 October boxes are available NOW for for subscriptions and single purchases! If you are a current subscriber, do not fret as your subscription will renew on September 21st ✨. Thank you all for the support the past couple of weeks! Do not forget to purchase our IMAGINE ME and A VERY BEACON CHRISTMAS Special Edition boxes! ⚫⚫⚫⚫ Tag some friends below who you think would be interested in this box! ⚫⚫⚫⚫ Graphic designed by Team Beacon artist @littlebearries

Fae Crate: The Never Tilting World

View this post on Instagram

It’s time to reveal our October “Break the Wheel” featured book! As we started doing last month, we are now revealing the books for each month’s boxes but giving the option for you to stay surprised. We have been reporting our hangover recovery kit sales to the New York Times for a long time now and wanted to start doing it for our monthly books as many are debut or newer authors! To report sales, you have to show what book you are selling to customers. We went over this information a couple months ago on a Live when we first talked about revealing to you guys and the reaction was positive and we are so happy to continue doing this! Read on for more info on the featured book: . . . . . . The Never Tilting World by @rinchupeco . A world split between day and night. Two sisters who must unite it. The author of The Bone Witch kicks off an epic YA fantasy duology perfect for fans of Furyborn. Generations of twin goddesses have long ruled Aeon—until one sister’s betrayal split their world in two. A Great Abyss now divides two realms: one cloaked in eternal night, the other scorched beneath an ever-burning sun. While one sister rules the frozen fortress of Aranth, her twin rules the sand-locked Golden City—each with a daughter by their side. Now those young goddesses must set out on separate, equally dangerous journeys in hopes of healing their broken world. No matter the sacrifice it demands. Told from four interweaving perspectives, this sweeping duology packs elemental magic, star-crossed romance, and incredible landscapes into a spectacular fantasy adventure that’s equal parts Frozen and Mad Max: Fury Road.

We are super excited to announce that the theme of our upcoming October box is…DAWN OF A NEW WORLD! 🚀 This box is not yet available. It will be available to order around September 20th (or once September boxes sell out early). If you place an order before then, you’ll be ordering the September FEAR THE NIGHT box. Please be careful when ordering! 🚀 What would you do if you landed on a brand new planet? And what if that planet was more dangerous than you could imagine? Luckily, you can experience the thrill of adventure from the comfort of your own home! 🚀 Our October box is inspired by science fiction tales that take place on unknown worlds, or feature an alternate future version of our own planet. 🚀 We are including TWO brand new hardcover novels this month! YAY! Both will have exclusive covers and be signed by the authors as well! One book is a contemporary story with a sci-fi twist, all about what would happen if we found out the world was about to end. The second book is an epic story about a future where androids have taken over the human race. Both books are extremely unique, and both feature diverse characters and romances! We absolutely adored them! 🚀 You'll also find awesome goodies inspired by The Illuminae Files, The Lunar Chronicles, Heart of Iron, Saga and Warcross! 🚀 Already subscribed to OwlCrate? Your October box is reserved for you – no need to sign up again. Just make sure your payment info is up to date so that you have a successful renewal on October 1st! 🚀 We hope you’re as excited by a sci-fi theme as we are!
