Hi everyone! How are you? If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I’m now a rep for both LitJoy Crate and Owlcrate. Being a representative for both of these bookish companies mean so much to me. Being a rep means I, along with other reps(check out litjoy crate’s insta) are provided with a discount code which you can use on any items in the shop – Subscriptions, Add-ons, Books- except for Specialty crates. My code is RAMBLER10 which is valid till October 20th and I’d love for you guys to use or share it! Thank you in advance 😀
As is the norm with my book reviews, my book box review will be honest and I don’t need to say spoiler-free because I already receive them later than everyone..Moving on..Here’s my unboxing of the July Book only box where the theme was Defenders of Dragons!!
The Book only monthly subscription costs $18.99(+ shipping) and the full crate costs $29.99(+ shipping). You can get a 10% discount with my code RAMBLER10 and you can swap between subscription types, cancel or skip anytime. There are monthly, 3-month, 6-month and 1-year subscriptions available for you to choose from!
About Book of the month:
Genre: YA Fantasy
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Raised among the ruins of a conquered mountain nation, Maren dreams only of sharing a quiet life with her girlfriend Kaia—until the day Kaia is abducted by the Aurati, prophetic agents of the emperor, and forced to join their ranks. Desperate to save her, Maren hatches a plan to steal one of the emperor’s coveted dragons and storm the Aurati stronghold.
If Maren is to have any hope of succeeding, she must become an apprentice to the Aromatory—the emperor’s mysterious dragon trainer. But Maren is unprepared for the dangerous secrets she uncovers: rumors of a lost prince, a brewing rebellion, and a prophecy that threatens to shatter the empire itself. Not to mention the strange dreams she’s been having about a beast deep underground…
With time running out, can Maren survive long enough to rescue Kaia from impending death? Or could it be that Maren is destined for something greater than she could have ever imagined?
I guess the Book only subsciption is a bargain but not for International customers(shipping costs dooming us since forever). On Book Depository, the hardcover is priced at $20.69 with free delivery while Litjoy Crate offers a signed book + exclusive reversible dust jacket, artwork by @whimsicalillustrations + author letter + 2x Shadowhunter trading cards featuring Isabelle and Simon for $18.99+ shipping.
I haven’t seen the book on Instagram but have heard of it on Book Twitter and it has dragons and lgbtq rep so I’m 99% sure that I’m going to like it. The art on both the dust jacket and character cards are gorgeous and Isabelle is one of my favourite Shadowhunters so I’m in LOVE!! Overall, I love the box and ignoring the international price tag, I can see myself buying it or gifting it to someone!! Again, if you do buy something from litjoy crate or know someone who wants to buy, then don’t forget to use RAMBLER10 for a discount.
Thank you for reading! Have you ever bought anything from any book boxes? If you’ve bought from LitJoy Crate before or want to, then let me know in the comments below!
