Book Box Guesses: November 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.

Beacon Book Box: Crown of Oblivion

ATTENTION BOOKWORMS! It is time to announce our November box theme… CRUCIAL COMPETITIONS! 🗡️ Our November box pays tribute to all the YA books that deal with competitions. From battling it out to the death in The Hunger Games to trying to win the title of King’s Champion in Throne of Glass, some of our favorite YA books revolve around competitions. 🗡️ Our November book of the month will transport you to a lush fantasy kingdom in which lower class citizens are without magic and the right to citizenship. That can change, though, if they enter a deadly competition in which most will not make it out alive. Filled with intrigue, suspense, teamwork and betrayal, this book will hook you from page one. 🗡️ 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 The Maze Runner, Shadow and Bone and The Cruel Prince! 🗡️ Fandoms being represented include THE HUNGER GAMES, THRONE OF GLASS, THE CROWN’S GAME, THE NIGHT CIRCUS and the winner of our Fandom Showdown, either THE SCORPIO RACES or HARRY POTTER! We are OBSESSED with the items that will be included in this box and know that you will be too. 🗡️ Please note that November’s box will not include a custom, exclusive dust jacket. We are taking a short break to find a new artist as our previous artist, @kat_adara, is taking a hiatus. Stay tuned for news about the next series we will be creating dust jackets for! 🗡️ 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. November’s box includes some awesome wearable and usable items! Stay tuned for reveals! 🗡️ November boxes are available NOW for subscriptions and single purchases! If you are a current subscriber, do not fret as your subscription will renew on October 21st ✨. Tag some friends below who you think would be interested in this box!

It's time for a throw back. Sort of. November's crate is going to be focusing on YA retellings of Classics that put the Lit in Literature. (Oh yes. We went there.) Sherlock Holmes, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Shakespeare. But refurbished by some of our very favorite authors. Dost thou heart beateth faster yet? No?

We are HUGE fans of this well known author and will be including signed bookplates along with a letter from the author! The fandoms featured this month will prepare you for anything from walking the plank to solving mysteries! Some fandoms featured are: 🐰Raven Cycle ⏱Stalking Jack the Ripper 🎩LIFEL1K3 & MORE!

We’re so excited to reveal the theme for November for our monthly box and it is… MAGICAL FOLK! 🖤 This theme is inspired by folk that have some sort of magical powers − fae, sorcerers, wizards! We had the best time working on all of the items for this box and cannot wait for you to see them − there are going to be SEVEN in total, so it’s jam-packed! You can expect the items in this box to be inspired by Spin The Dawn, Harry Potter, Strange The Dreamer, Angefall, fae in general and more! 🖤 We are thrilled to reveal that this box will have VOLUME II of the collectible Secret Book designed by @noverantale (we think it might be even more stunning than the last one, which we didn’t know was possible!). It will also include our next reading journal, which has now been changed to a year-long one! It features artwork by the incredibly talented @monolimeart. 🖤 Our featured book of the month is a story about sisters that need to fight to the death in a North African-inspired fantasy world. We loved this book and it is filled with magical folk! The edition we are featuring will have SPRAYED EDGES, an EXCLUSIVE COVER and will be SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. 🖤 Stay tuned for more supplier reveals over the coming weeks! 😉 🖤 This box is NOT available yet. We will open for subscriptions on October 2nd and single purchases will be available on October 11th at 1pm BST. 🖤 If you already have a subscription you can sit back and relax – you will automatically get this box! 🖤 Stunning art by Official FairyLoot Artist @taratjah 🖤 #FairyLoot

Shelflove Crate: Blood Heir

View this post on Instagram

We’ve read it a hundred times! Not in the restricted section.🤫 ❌ Our November ‘READING THE RESTRICTED SECTION’ crate was inspired by books that have been banned or labeled problematic. With the growth of the “call out culture” as named by the New York Times, we felt this box was needed to highlight important works of fiction that have helped shape our reading culture. ❌ Fandoms include banned or challenged books, such as: Harry Potter, Twilight, The Handmaid’s Tale, and more. ❌ Our book of the month had a rocky start in the publishing industry. After her book faced early criticism, debut author Amélie Wen Zhao made the decision to pull her book, BLOOD HEIR. We are overjoyed that she has decided to move forward with publication after seeking the advice of many culture and sensitivity experts, and hearing the book community’s pleas for its release. Her dark retelling of the Anastasia legend is unique to her cultural perspective and we believe her words deserve to be shared. ❌ Want the book, but not the items? We have a book only subscription option which renews monthly. The book will come with a signed bookplate, the bookmark of the month and 2 of our chess piece collectibles. ❌ Ready for a peek of the November ‘READING THE RESTRICTED SECTION’ crate? We will have our first vendor reveal soon! ❌ If you’re already a subscriber, no need to worry! We have a box reserved for you already and your subscription will renew on November 1st. ❌ Theme art by @noverantale ❌ 🔸 . . . #shelflovecrate #feeltheshelflove #bookstagram #books #bookbox #shelflove #book #bookaddiction #yalit #instabooks #bookaholic #yabooks #bibliophile #booknerd #booklove #bookish #booklover #booksofinstagram #bookworm #subbox #subscriptionbox

Unicorn Crate: A Constellation of Roses

View this post on Instagram

November theme announcement! Remember, boxes are now only available by single purchase. There will not be an Oct. or Dec. box, so THIS is the last box before the holidays 😉. The order window opens TOMORROW (for 12 days). . . ⭐️ The November Unicorn Crate theme is FICTIONAL FAMILIES. This one is inspired by some of the bookish community’s favorite families in fiction and celebrates families both biological and found. No family looks the same and sometimes you find your true family in the most unexpected ways. . . ⭐ The featured title in this box will be a hardcover standalone November release. I’ve chosen something a bit different this time. It’s a YA contemporary with a dusting of magic I think you’ll find quite delicious. It’s perfect for fans of Anna-Marie McLemore and Emily X.R. Pan, and I also got some Practical Magic vibes from the family in this story that I think many of you will appreciate. Ages 13+ . . ⭐ The story follows a young woman who, after being on the move without a family, lands with her long-lost relatives in a tiny town she wants nothing to do with. But there’s something special about this family – a sort of mysterious magic that shows up in their various talents. She struggles with the growing sense of belonging vs her urge to keep on running and when her past comes back to haunt her, she’ll have to decide between her old life and her new. There are magical pies, palm-reading, dark secrets, and a new school full of flawed yet lovable characters. I am completely smitten with this book, and knew it was the perfect fall/winter read to share with you all. . . ⭐ This box will be oh-so-cozy and filled with goodies inspired by Gilmore Girls, Hansel & Gretel, Harry Potter, the 12 Dancing Princesses, and more. AND one of the larger items I’m designing is inspired by the featured book itself! Once you read it, you’re going to want to wear it all the time… Oops, spoiler! 😊 . . There are still a few items yet to be finalized for this box, so let me know your favorite fictional families, and I’ll see what I can fit in! I have until the order window closes to finalize items. . . . #unicorncrate #bookbox #yabooks #bookgifts #fictionalfamily #cozyreads
