If it’s not obvious – this post will be a spoiler for anyone who has not received their August Illumicrate box yet.
August 2022 Theme is In Too Deep
Flow Like A River Water Bottle
Designed by: Fez Inkwright (@Rosdottir)
I’ve heard about Illumicrate’s glass bottles and this is my first one! I love it! Perfect for the summer season. It is so pretty.
Black Sun Straw Set
Designed by: Illumicrate
Another great item for the summer and economical too! I use metal straws a lot, I also use them as seed planters in the greenhouse (once I’m done with drinking from them). They come with a handle little cleaning brush as well.
Night Spire Travel Toothbrush Holder
Designed by: No0nedesigns
I don’t think I have ever heard of this item being in a book box before – so that’s cool! I haven’t tested it to see of my own toothbrush fits in the case yet, but it’s cool anyway!
Beneath the Waves Towel
Artwork by: Yoshi Yoshitani (@yoshiyoshitani)
This was the item that kept me from skipping this month’s box! I absolutely love it. Even if you are not a fan of Jude and Cardan this is a great item. You can never have enough towels.
Featured book: The Drowned Woods by Emily Lloyd-Jones
Once upon a time, the kingdoms of Wales were rife with magic and conflict – and eighteen-year-old Mererid ‘Mer’ is well-acquainted with both. As the last living water diviner, she can manipulate water with magic – a unique elemental power many would kill to possess.
For years, Mer has been running from the prince who bound her into his service – and forced her to kill thousands with her magic. Now, all Mer truly wants is a safe, quiet life, far from power and politics.
But then Mer’s old handler – the king’s spymaster – returns with a proposition: use her powers to bring down the very prince that abused them both.
I had skipped last month’s box as I wasn’t familiar with the fandoms and financially I’m trying to be more mindful. I decided to keep this box as I read that there would be a Folk of the Air item. I also loved the sound of the book. I’m so glad I didn’t skip as this is quite possibly the best box I’ve had from Illumicrate to date.
