So today we have Novembers Book Box Club and I’m super excited for this at it is Dangers in the Deep. I’ve been subscribed to them since June and I actually really love it, I didn’t expect to keep it going for so long. They are perfect for those of us who don’t necessarily belong to any fandoms, I pay for this box myself, these are completely my honest opinions as always.
Let’s get unboxing…
Mermaid Socks by Joe Cool
“Under their scaly tails every self-respecting mermaid is secretly sporting a pair of these stylish mermaid socks!” www.joe-cool.co.uk
You can never have enough pairs of socks!
Dangers of the Deep Shampoo Bar by The Clovelly Soap Company
“Lather up your locks with this sumptuous shampoo bar. With all-natural ingredients and a refreshing citrusy scent, your tresses/tentacles will feel squeaky clean and super soft in no time.”
I love that they have included a shampoo bar! I’ve been waning to try these for ages as they are a fab way to reduce waste and it smells of grapefruit which is one of my favourites.
Poisedon Ceramic Coaster with Artwork by Savvy Paint
“Rest your coffee cup in the hands/on the tridents of the gods with this exclusive coaster, inspired by Percy Jackson’s all-powerful dad.” @savvy.paint
I’ve been thinking about starting Percy Jackson for a while now, but I’ve been put off as it’s middle grade and I don’t know if it would read a little too young for me, what do you think?
Ceramic Kraken Pin by Cherry Pin Lane
“Remember the giant kraken from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea? Well here he is! The expert team at Cherry Pie Lane have shrunk him down and mounted him on this gorgeous exclusive ceramic pin, where you can keep an eye on him. Wear if you dare!”
This is such a cool pin, I really need to find somewhere to keep these!
Signed Myriad Map Print
“Mount this magical print on your wall and prepare to journey to the Myriad – the setting of our featured read! All prints are signed by our featured author, Frances Hardinge.”
This is just such a beautiful print that makes me even more excited for this months book.
Night Whale Notebook with Artwork by Jago Illustration
“We couldn’t have a Dangers of the Deep box without a nod to one of the ocean’s most magnificent underwater wonders.”
Now time for the book…
Deeplight by Frances Hardinge
For centuries the gods of the Undersea ruled the islands of the Myriad through awe and terror: they were very real, and very dangerous. Sacrifices were hurled into the waters to appease them, and every boat was painted with pleading eyes to entreat their mercy. They were served, feared and adored. Then, thirty years ago, the gods rose up in madness and tore each other apart.
Now, none remain. The islands have recovered and the people have patched their battered ships and moved on.
On one of these islands live Hark and his best friend Jelt. To them, the gods are nothing but a collection of valuable scraps to be scavenged from the ocean and sold.
But now something is pulsing beneath the waves, calling to someone brave enough to retrieve it.
How stunning is this box?! It fits the theme perfectly and I’m really excited to discover the Myriad in Deeplight. I really love the Book Box Club and the amount of effort that they put into creating these each month. Do any of you subscribe to book boxes?
See you in the next one…
