Book Box Guesses: September 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 September box theme… VENGEANCE IS MINE! 🛡 To start with, we are thrilled to announce that our September box will include the third of four QUARTERLY COLLECTIBLE ENAMEL 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. The amount of detail Diana has put into the artwork is absolutely incredible and we are stunned at how GORGEOUS the art is. September’s artwork hint is STARFALL! 🛡 Our September box celebrates and explores the worlds of YA books filled with suspense, secret societies and revenge. 🛡 Our September book of the month will transport you to a high school where an anonymous organization run solely by teenage girls who maintain their power by granting favors in exchange for secrets. The main character has seen firsthand the damage this organization can do and decides to seek vengeance by taking them down from the inside. 🛡 This book will be SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR! You can also expect an author letter to accompany it ☺️. 🛡 This epic book is perfect for fans of One Of Us Is Lying, All Your Twisted Secrets and The Young Elites! 🛡 Fandoms being represented include A COURT OF WINGS AND RUIN, TRUTHWITCH, RED RISING, NEVERNIGHT, FURYBORN and THREE DARK CROWNS! With all of these epic fandoms, this box will truly be one not to miss. 🛡 This box will include our ninth 2020 monthly collectible item, glass ornaments! This months’ ornament is inspired by NEVERNIGHT and is seriously stunning!! 🛡 September boxes are available tomorrow, 8/11 at 5 PM EST for subscriptions and single purchases! ✨. Due to the ACOTAR mug, fandoms and book we are including in this box, we do expect them to sell out very fast. We have stocked up but cannot guarantee how long stock will last! ⚫️⚫️⚫️⚫️ STUNNING artwork designed by @riddleandravens

We are so pleased to share our September Young Adult Hint – Interstellar Queen!. . ​Two friends, one made of stardust and one fighting to save her family's diner, take on their small town's 50th annual pageant and talent competition in the hopes that they can change their town's destiny, and their own. . There hasn't been a winner of the town beauty pageant who looks like either of our main characters in all its history. But that's not the only reason one wants to enter the contest or why her ex-best friend wants to help her. . The road to becoming queen isn't about being perfect; it's about sharing who you are with the world, and loving the parts of yourself no one else understands. So to pull off the unlikeliest underdog story in pageant history, they're going to have to forget the past and imagine a future where girls like them are more than enough – they are everything. . A gorgeously written tale by two talented authors, this #ownvoices novel creates a cast of characters that leap off the page, representing body positivity, the LGBTQ+ and Latinx community, and the love and support of family; both the ones you have by blood and the ones you choose. . A novel that creates a beautifully woven story tackling tough topics and promoting self-acceptance. A contemporary tale with a dash of magical realism, this is the perfect, light-hearted read to inspire you to be your best self. . This box is only available now through September 14th or until we sell out, so don't miss your chance to experience this box!

  1. This was super helpful! I was wondering which book might be in Owlcrate, since there was another horror book I had my eye on, and I didn’t want to buy something I was already going to get.
