May 2018 Bookie Box unboxing

This was my first time getting The Bookie Box.  I’m not going to lie.  I’m not a fan of this box at all.  I was very disappointed.  The shipping date changed multiple times (I didn’t get it in until June 4th), the box was overstuffed and all bent, and I’m very bummed about the book.  I picked based off what The Book Box Sherlocks thought the book was and that was not it.  It is also a self published paperback book.  I’m sure some people will love it, but I can’t even get through all the books I really want to read.  So getting a book I’ve never heard of was pretty upsetting.  I also wasn’t happy with the quality of the items in the box.  Maybe this was just a one time bad box.

 

Stop reading here if you don’t want any spoilers.  There will be pictures of everything in the box.

The theme for May was Forbidden Love and Dangerous Battles (yes, the S is cut off the card)

A couple bookmarks.  You can see that the one is damaged from the box being overpacked.

Beauty and the Beast Popup Socket.  This would be nice, but the quality is not great.  Belle is pretty much missing her nose. 😦

A candle that isn’t filled and very sloppy. 😦  It’s chocolate champagne and is based off The Winner’s Curse.

I’m guessing these small prints are based off the book?  The card doesn’t say what they are.

This mug is nice, but it’s based off the book that I probably won’t ever read.  It’s for this month’s book.

The paperback book included.  It was released in April and is self published.  The formatting is a bit messed up in the book, too (words to close to the top with space on the bottom).  There is an author letter and signed bookplate.

Next month’s theme.

Did anyone else get this box?  Did you like it more than I did?  Is this the normal quality for The Bookie Box from what you’ve seen?
