Book Box Guesses: March 2020

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! If you think I’m wrong. please leave a comment as to which book is a better fit.

Let me know if I’m missing a box you think should be added to the list.

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: All Your Twisted Secrets

View this post on Instagram

ATTENTION BOOKWORMS! It is time to announce our March box theme… EXPLOSIVE SECRETS! 💥 To start with, we are thrilled to announce that our March box will be the start of our new QUARTERLY COLLECTIBLE MUGS. We have teamed up with the amazing @dianadworak to bring you FOUR mugs inspired by Sarah J. Maas’ A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES series that will be included in March, June, September and December boxes. The amount of detail Diana has put into the artwork is absolutely incredible and we are stunned at how GORGEOUS the art is. 💥 Our March box celebrates and explores the worlds of YA books filled with secrets, mysteries and explosive plots. 💥 Our March book of the month will transport you to a mysterious scholarship dinner where six potential recipients, each with their own terrible secrets, discover the event is a trap. Locked in a room with a ticking time bomb, a syringe of poison and a note saying the teenagers have an hour to pick someone to kill, the suspense and writing style will hook you from page one. I (Cam) read an advanced copy of the book and cannot sing enough praise for it. I was intrigued from the very start, fell in love with the story and was shocked by the thrilling conclusion. This is a book you seriously cannot miss out on. 💥 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 Agatha Christie, Sadie and We Were Liars! 💥 Fandoms being represented include ONE OF US IS LYING, THE SELECTION, STALKING JACK THE RIPPER, THE LUNAR CHRONICLES and GAME OF THRONES! With all of these epic fandoms, this box will truly be one not to miss. 💥 This box will include our third 2020 monthly collectible item, glass ornaments! This months’ ornament is inspired by a secretive GAME OF THRONES house and is seriously stunning!! 💥 March boxes are available tomorrow, February 11th, at 9 AM EST for subscriptions and single purchases! If you are a current subscriber, do not fret as your subscription will renew on February 21st ✨. Due to the how epic this box is, we do expect them to sell out very fast. We have stocked up but cannot guarantee how long boxes will last 😁❤️ Artwork: @littlebearries

💫MARCH THEME REVEAL💫 . . Our next theme is …HIGH FANTASY HIGH STAKES! This theme is based on some of our favourite High Fantasy stories! . .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The themed artwork was created by official artist Jenny (@tecsiederp) with some help from her friend Lotus (@yafreffel) and is exclusive to Book Hooked Box. We wanted this piece to feel rather fantastical and magical. We think both artists achieved this! The artwork will be included in the box as usual. 😊 . . Our lovely Fiona of @FelfiraMoonDesigns has been obsessed with drawing a certain item recently and luckily enough it fits right in with our theme. Fiona had a lot of fun with this bookmark! *stab stabbies*🗡 . . Candle maker Leonie of @AshandQuillCandles will be creating another exclusive 4oz. This candle will be moody but sparkly and is themed on the book of the month. 🕯 . . Did someone say more vegan cookies? Our recent inclusion of the wonderful @GardnersCookies has been super popular, so of course we'll give the people what they want! Following on with our High Fantasy theme, these cookies will be based on an EPIC book (and film) trilogy that is truly …precious. 😉 . . As always we will be including a yummy Belgian Chocolate hot drink to enjoy whilst reading your new book. ☕ . . The book of the month is the first in an Epic Fantasy trilogy. This story follows a tale of uprising and empowerment that blends magic, politics and adventure in an unforgettable setting. With a fiery and determined protagonist and a handsome stranger. We devoured every word! The book will also come with an author letter and SIGNED bookplate. . .  Bonus item: for the first time ever we will be including a Jewellery piece. We are super excited as the piece is themed on a favourite childhood story set within Narnia. The supplier will be revealed this coming week! 🥳 . . Boxes go on sale TODAY at 1pm GMT. If you're already subscribed you can sit back and relax, your subscription will renew on February 15th. . . Are you excited?! 💜 . . #bookhookedbox #bhb #booksubscriptionbox #bookworms #themereveal #highfantasy #candles #cookies #bookish

Fox & Wit: If These Wings Could Fly

View this post on Instagram

I typically don’t talk about how or why I choose a book for a box. This month, though? I have so much to say. I normally pick fantasy books about 98% of the time for the boxes bc it’s what’s trending. I’ll admit March was a tough month. There is a highly anticipated fantasy book I know you all would clamor over. It is very enjoyable and very on brand for the kinds of book we choose. But I went with another selection this month that’s not fantasy and so different from what I usually include. There’s a reason for this. Stories entertain, yes. But stories are also important bc they can showcase and highlight events in the world around us. And this one moved me to the point where I’m still thinking about it 2 months later. The book I chose this month is a story of domestic violence. It’s a story of having to make sacrifices. It’s story of love. It’s a story of overcoming fear, of living and healing. It’s the story of every 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men in the US. It’s a story that may belong to you, your friend, family member or neighbor. It’s a book that tackles a heavy subject matter but is filled with charm, humor, light and hope. I took a risk this month choosing this book because I know that 95% of you already are familiar with the fantasy title to which I’ve referred and are probably hoping I’d pick it. But it’s already on the radar for the book community. Instead, I wanted to showcase a book that isn’t getting enough buzz. I wanted to put this incredibly powerful book in the hands of readers who might not have picked it up otherwise. This is a story that needs to be told, to be read and to be shared. I think sometimes we get so caught up in hyped “it” books that we forget the joy of discovering new something that wows us. And I hope you all take the chance this month and let a book surprise and move you. • • • • • •#readingislife #fortheloveofbooks #readersgonnaread #bookcommunity #bookishlove #booklion #avidreader #bookstagramcommunity #booksonbooks
