The Wildest Dreams Book Box February Unboxing: Truth or Lies

Earlier this month I came home to a parcel I’d very much been looking forward to, the Wildest Dreams Book Box! 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 February the theme was “Truth or Lies”. Keep reading to see what was inside this month’s box.

This month’s book was The Truth and Lies of Ella Black which, due to the title of the box, I did have a sneaking suspicion may be the case. I actually already have a copy of this book thanks to the lovely people at Penguin and my local Waterstones courtesy of the local book bloggers event, so I may look at giving one copy away! I’m actually just around half way through the book as I type this and I’m finding it rather intriguing, so here’s the blurb for those who want to find out a little bit more…

“Ella Black seems to live the life most other seventeen-year-olds would kill for . . . Until one day, telling her nothing, her parents whisk her off to Rio de Janeiro.

Determined to find out why, Ella takes her chance and searches through their things.And realises her life has been a lie.Her mother and father aren’t hers at all. Unable to comprehend the truth, Ella runs away, to the one place they’ll never think to look – the favelas.

But there she learns a terrible secret – the truth about her real parents and their past. And the truth about a mother, desperate for a daughter taken from her seventeen years ago . . . “

Next up is the “Lies Require Commitment” candle by Taken Moons. I’d been meaning to get my hands on one of Taken Moon’s candles for a while so it was nice to see this included in the box. Inspired by Divergent, this candle smells of black cherry which always reminds me of the red cola bottle sweets – yum!

This month’s tea was lemon and ginger flavoured and named “Veritaserum” inspired by Harry Potter, so of course I already love it! The packaging is so unique and makes for a very cool gift, it definitely stands out compared to tea received in other subscription boxes. I really appreciate that Zoe includes empty tea bags to brew the tea, and even includes instructions which makes it so much easier for tea novices like myself.

Once again, the Wildest Dreams Book Box has succeeded! At such an inexpensive price point compared to its competitors but not at all lacking in quality, there are plenty of reasons why you should get your hands on one of these boxes. I think it’s important to note that this box is brought to you by just one person, Zoe, who obviously puts a lot of effort into bringing this all together; you can practically feel the hard work that’s been put into curating this box! I also have serious envy of the packaging skills as the book always comes wrapped super neatly and securely.

If you use code “AMYJANEALICE10” you will receive a discount, so what are you waiting for? Make sure to get your hands on the next Wildest Dreams Book Box!

Review: Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson

Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson is a book I hadn’t heard about prior to receiving the Harper360 newsletter, but as soon as I read the blurb, I was desperate to read it. I very gratefully received an ARC of the book by the publisher, and couldn’t wait to dive in as soon as I got my hands on …

They are the number one romantic fiction publisher after all. A British brand founded in 1908, Mills & Boon books are sold all over the world, with one book selling …
