If you follow me on social media you would have seen I received a book box. A wonderful new book box is starting next year in January called Rainbow Book Box. I was kindly sent their sample box this month and I have to say, I was blown away. It was a fantastic box and I can't recommend them enough!
Rainbow Book Box are set in Scotland.
'A monthly subscription box featuring diverse Young Adult books! Each month, we send you a newly released YA book by a BAME, LGBT+ or disabled author. Our boxes contain a selection of literary gifts, ranging from candles to tote bags to exclusive goodies from the author! Diversifying your shelves has never been easier or more fun.'
How amazing that a book box is centred around BAME, LGBT+ and disabled authors?! I think it's great as to say, I definitely need to read more books by these authors and this box gives you the opportunity and also books you might not of heard of or ones you've just been dying to read.
The box will be £27 but, if you pre-order their first box, Lights, Camera, Action you can get it for £24!
Their full website will be live on December 21st! If you're looking for the perfect gift for someone this Christmas I recommend this box!
First two things that where in the box was a Bubble Bar from Shimmer & Luxe. It is called Mermaids Cove and it smells amazing! I love mermaids and I just love how cute it is with the shells in it.
A beautiful mermaid card that was made by Jasminerebecca and you can find her on Instagram with that username or Thesmallestshop! I love the design of this card and I don't think I'll use it, it'll look lovely on my wall.
The next two things was this amazing smelling candle. It's called Little Mermaid from Pret A Geek. It smells wonderful and the perfect size. I definitely recommend you check out their shop. Then we have this beautiful coaster, not sure who the artist is or maker but, I am in love. It's a good size with a beautiful design on the front. I love having this on my coffee table.
One of my favourite items from the box was these amazing mermaid socks! From the sticker, I am guessing they are made from Rainbow Book Box themselves! I think it's such a nice touch and I finally have mermaid socks! How cute are they?!
Last, was the book. It came beautifully wrapped. I love when the book in a subscription is wrapped as it's like a little present and also, keeps it a secret until you've opened it.
The book is Like Water by Rebecca Podos.
'Like Water is an unforgettable story of two girls navigating the unknowable waters of identity, millennial anxiety, and first love, from the acclaimed author of The Mystery of Hollow Places.In Savannah Espinoza's small New Mexico hometown, kids either flee after graduation or they're trapped there forever. Vanni never planned to get stuck?but that was before her father was diagnosed with Huntington's disease, leaving her and her mother to care for him. Now she doesn't have much of a plan at all: living at home, working as a performing mermaid at a second-rate water park, distracting herself with one boy after another. That changes the day she meets Leigh. Disillusioned with small-town life and looking for something greater, Leigh is not a "nice girl." She is unlike anyone Vanni has met, and a friend when Vanni desperately needs one. Soon enough, Leigh is much more than a friend. But caring about another person threatens the walls Vanni has carefully constructed to protect herself and brings up the big questions she's hidden from for so long.'
This book sounds like it may make me cry and it just sounds beautiful. Let me know if you've read it in the comments as I'm going to be starting it soon.
So, I think Rainbow Book Box have done amazing for a sample box. They had everything from bath products, to house products and socks! I do wish it would include a spoiler card only so I know who each of the artist are for each item and I know that in the boxes going on sale you get a letter from the author, which is a lovely touch!
Again, if you're looking for a present for someone or, just want to treat yourself, the pre-sale box is only £24 at the moment! So grab it before it goes as I can just tell this box is going to be very popular!
