Book Box Guesses: April 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.

Book Box guesses

I don’t know which boxes/shipping times have been affected by COVID-19. Ask the box owners/read the captions of their Instagram posts.

Karma is coming around the bend with April's 'Retribution' crates. We're ready to stand up for our beloved characters that have suffered injustices. This month is all about standing up for what is right, the balance of Good and Evil, and defending those who can’t defend themselves. . . It's time for a reckoning. . . The book featured this month is a tale of fighting for a purpose bigger than yourself. Set in an empire being forced into uniformity, our heroine weighs decisions that could either set right the wrongs of her predecessors or condemn her to face the demons that threaten the peace they've known for years. Fans of Dread Nation, The Guinevere Deception, and Children of Blood and Bone will love our featured book. . We are SO happy to say that we will be including not only our usual signed bookplates and letter from the author but we will also be including an ANNOTATED CHAPTER from the author as well! This book was so incredible that we needed more! And not to mention the cover is so unique and stunning you will NEED it on your shelves. . We couldn’t have a Retribution crate without including The Hunger Games, Children of Blood & Bone, Gilded Wolves and more to come. Justice must be served and these characters are the ones to give it to you. . Be ready to fight tyranny (sign up for a subscription) on March 1st at 9am EST to make sure justice is properly served (you snag a box). We sold out of March Crates quickly and we have lower quantities of April available! . Theme art is of Nehemia, standing in as the goddess Adrestia, Goddess of Revolt, from the Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas and designed by @Gabriella.bujdoso. This is the 4th out of 12 in our Year of Olympus collection. Snag a box to keep your collection going. Sales will go live on March 1st at 9 am EST. Subscription renewals will go through on March 15th!

They play a significant role in our featured book of the month and this theme revolves around memories, whether they’re good or bad, forgotten or unforgettable, hidden or exposed. 🖤 In this box you can expect items inspired by Throne of Glass, The Beautiful, Harry Potter, Daughter of Smoke and Bone and more! This box will also include Volume III of the collectible secret book designed by @noverantale, and this is the most beautiful one yet – Nova has outdone herself! 🖤 Our featured book of the month is set in a world inspired by Inquisition-era Spain, where magic is feared and rebels are trying to overthrow the crown.

We know this is quite early, but we couldn't wait to share our upcoming April theme with you! The theme of the April box is… FULL MOON MAGIC! 🌑 The book we've chosen for April is an addictive fantasy all about a group of women and girls who use the power of the moon to help the souls of the dead pass over. It's filled with fierce female friendship, forbidden romance, interesting magic and more. This book is a March release, but we fell head over heels in love with it and knew we simply had to feature it in a box! 🌘 We are including an amazing exclusive edition of the book, which will have an EXCLUSIVE COVER and SPRAYED EDGES. The book will also be SIGNED and come with a letter from the author. 🌗 There will be items inspired by Professor Lupin, Oscar Wilde, Winterwood, Shatter Me and more. We designed these items so that any bookworm could enjoy them, and they feature some lovely minimalist artwork. We truly think these goodies will appeal to everyone! We can't wait to share sneak peeks next month! 🌖 These FULL MOON MAGIC boxes won't be available to order until mid-March. If you place an order now you'll be ordering the March MUSIC OF THE NIGHT box. Please be careful when ordering, and wait for our official announcement post for when April boxes are available. 🌕 Yayyyy! There is so much epic bookish fun coming your way over the next few months. We seriously can't wait for you to see what you think of what we've put together. Thank you all so much for continuously inspiring us to make our boxes better and better. 🌒 graphic by @heyatlascreative 🌓 #owlcrate #bookstagram #bookbox #mysubscriptionaddiction #subscriptionboxaddict #bookmail #readersofig #readingaddiction #shopsmall #fantasybooks
