Just like every month, around the second to third week in, I arrived home to a lovely parcel from the Wildest Dreams Book Box! It’s always an exciting time when I get my hands on the latest box, as usually I have no idea what’s going to be included but I always know I’m going to love it! If you didn’t know, a few months back, I was very luckily chosen to be a rep for Wildest Dreams and this box was very gratefully received from Zoe, the owner of Wildest Dreams Book Box.
So, what exactly is the Wildest Dreams Book Box? It’s a monthly YA subscription box packed with a new YA release, tea and other goodies relating to a particular theme for less than £20! For March the theme was “Family Ties”. Keep reading to see what was inside this month’s box and look out for my discount code at the end!
First up is my favourite product from this month’s box: The Weasleys shower gel and bubble bath made exclusively for the Wildest Dreams Book Box by Geeky Clean! The Weasleys are one of my all time favourite bookish families (as I’m sure they are for many other people too) and I think this product is just perfect; from the design to the colour to the scent, everything is spot on.
Next up is this month’s tea. Inspired by another popular YA family from The Hate U Give, it’s The Carters English Breakfast Tea by Rosie Lea Tea! I’m ashamed to admit that despite raving reviews, I haven’t yet read The Hate U Give but I do hope to change this very soon!
Finally is this month’s book. I went into this box having absolutely no idea what the book could be, which I always prefer as I love a good bookish surprise! The box included a themed pack of tissues so before I opened the book parcel I knew what it was going to be but that didn’t bother me. I think the themed tissues were a really lovely touch, and I’m guessing it’s going to be an emotional read! Far From the Tree is a totally different genre to what I usually read but it’s good to get out of your reading comfort zone! It’s an award winning book with glowing review on Goodreads so I must pick it up soon. Check out the blurb below:
“Being the middle child has its ups and downs.
But for Grace, an only child who was adopted at birth, discovering that she is a middle child is a different ride altogether. After putting her own baby up for adoption, she goes looking for her biological family, including—
Maya, her loudmouthed younger bio sister, who has a lot to say about their newfound family ties. Having grown up the snarky brunette in a house full of chipper redheads, she’s quick to search for traces of herself among these not-quite-strangers. And when her adopted family’s long-buried problems begin to explode to the surface, Maya can’t help but wonder where exactly it is that she belongs.
And Joaquin, their stoic older bio brother, who has no interest in bonding over their shared biological mother. After seventeen years in the foster care system, he’s learned that there are no heroes, and secrets and fears are best kept close to the vest, where they can’t hurt anyone but him.”
Once again this was a well thought out and lovingly crafted offering from the Wildest Dreams Book Box. Every month it’s packaged impeccably, with actually useful products included which I love! As this is all run by one woman, Zoe, I am always blown away by the care put into the box and how successfully it is all organised.
