Book Box Guesses: August 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.

ATTENTION BOOKWORMS! It is time to announce our August box theme… ADVENTURE AWAITS! 🔥 Our August box pays tribute to some epic, fan-favorite novels that deal with adventure, quests and a common enemy to take down. 🔥 Our August book of the month will transport you to a Greco-Roman inspired fantasy world filled with gladiators, war, elemental powers and mythical gods. Here, some individuals are blessed with powers – gladiators – who fight to settle wars and disputes on behalf of their countries. But, when two gladiators on opposing sides of a war come to learn more about themselves and the tyrannical gods that control their existence, trouble starts to brew. 🔥 The book will be SIGNED BY THE AUTHORS! You can expect an author letter to accompany it ☺️. 🔥 This epic book is perfect for fans of THE HUNGER GAMES, THE CRUEL PRINCE and AVATAR! 🔥 This box will also include TWO BONUS E-BOOKS, both which fit the adventurous theme perfectly.

These will return in October! 🔥 Fandoms being represented include LORD OF THE RINGS, NARNIA, ERAGON, THE HUNGER GAMES and THE INFERNAL DEVICES! With all of these epic fandoms, this box will truly be one not to miss. 🔥 This box will include our eighth 2020 monthly collectible item, glass ornaments! This months’ ornament is inspired by THE HUNGER GAMES and is seriously stunning!! 🔥 August boxes are available NOW for subscriptions and single purchases!

Fae Crate: Things That Should Stay Buried

View this post on Instagram

August “Transcendence” Book Reveal! . . We are SO beyond excited to be including Things That Should Stay Buried by @authorcaseybond 😍😍. This was such a unique, romantic and nail biting book to read and we cannot wait to share it with you all! Our editions are going to be exclusive hardback editions with custom emboss design by @noverantale. Boxes are currently sold out because you’re all amazing but if we have any extras after renewals go through we will send a newsletter to our newsletter subscribers first when they are listed. More about the book: . Some destinies are written in the stars. Others must be bought with blood… The Zodia are real. Clawing their way from a long-forgotten tomb, they emerge, ravenous to claim everyone born under their star signs. Plotting to resurrect kingdoms no human knew existed, they are driven by a hunger for vengeance against the one who buried them: Aries. Larken is a natural born sprinter, but even she can't outrun the darkness closing in. A shelter-in-place order has been issued, causing widespread panic. Some brush the alarm off as a drill, until people begin to disappear… vanishing without a trace. Left with only one option, Larken's brother does what he must to save her life… and calls forth Aries. Considered a traitor by his own kind, only Aries has the power to stand against the Zodia. But he can't do it alone. Mystically bonded to Larken, the pair must band together for the fight to come if either hope to make it out alive. Neither anticipated the passion that would ignite between them. Yet, in a world suddenly thrust into chaos, it may be the key to their survival. The Zodia are out for blood with their attentions inexplicably focused on Larken. When long buried truths finally come to light, will their love be their salvation or their curse?
