May 2018 Illumicrate Unboxing

 

I decided to give Illumicrate a chance for May.  The box was a bit late, but I finally got it in.  It was a nice box.  Not my favorite, but still really good.  I forgot to take a picture of everything together, but I have all the individual pics to share.

I really like these character cards by @taratjah.  They are exclusive and are of Will, Jem, and Tessa from Infernal Devices.

#perfectfictionalworlds box by @aliceoseman.  This is exclusive.  I’m using it to store all my page flags and page markers already.  It’s really cute.

“It Is Your Time” Booksleeve by @risarodil.  This is exclusive and based off Black Panther.  It’s a nice size for paperbacks.

I picked this box partly because I knew there was going to be an ARC.  I was pretty excited to see this one.  Light Years by Kass Morgan that comes out this fall.

The main book is A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews.  It came with a signed bookplate, bookmark, and letter from the author.

It also has sprayed pages.

 

 

Bummed that I forgot to take a picture with everything before I put things up.   I’ll make sure to do better next time.

 

 

Overall, I really liked this box.  My favorite thing was probably the ARC, but I also liked the box, character cards, and element page markers a lot, too.   Honestly, there wasn’t anything that I didn’t like and I would probably buy this box again if it has a book I’m interested in.

 

 

Did you get Illumicrate?  What did you think of the box?  Do you have a favorite item (even if you didn’t get the box, just by the pictures)?
