Maas box called A Court of Thrones for $65.00 USD. You can save 10% by using any codes from the reps for this company! There are only 17 boxes left for the July Grimmly Ever After box so get yours NOW!

 

Products: 1 YA book along with 5-7 bookish items. The company tries to use handmade products from Etsy or other shops you see on bookstagram. For the limited edition boxes there are more items.

 

Ships: USA and most countries.

 

The enchantment continues into the fall and in this hurricane season I’m excited to have some extra items that I can use while cooped up in my house. Now if only my instagram would save my drafts then everything would be hunky dory! But that’s a story for another time! Anyways, this month’s theme was Women in Comics and this beautiful info card artwork was made by @johnyfoxart!

 

The first few items I pulled out of the box were these cute little items. The button is of Kamala Khan and retails for about $5 for an art print on Raicodoll’s Etsy page. The funko keychain item is of Spider-Gwen and retails for $4.65 each. People who got this box could have received Spider-Gwen, Harley Quinn, or Scarlet Witch. The candle is from @threeknockscandles and retails for about $7.50. The scent is called Fight Like A Girl and it has a calming scent that isn’t too strong.

 

The last items I pulled out of the box were these bigger items. The soap is from @storyscentsations and retails for $6.99. The soap is called The Enchantress and it smells like Ancient Magic and Earth. The bookmarks are from @beedooTo. The characters are Storm and Lady Thor (Jane Foster). Her individual bookmarks are worth about $3.00 so these two are worth around $6.00. The art print is from ProudMomPrints and should be worth around $3.00 like her other prints. Lastly, the comic (Mean Girls by Ryan Heshka) is worth around $5.95 on the publishing website.

 

Lastly, the book for this month was Wonder Woman Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo! Here’s an excerpt of the book:

She will become one of the world’s greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. . . .
 
Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.
 
Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.
 
Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war. – Amazon.com

 

The book came in hardback and had a pull-out posted in the back of the book! This book is available for $9.56 on Amazon.

 


Verdict: I thought this box was not only very well done but also was diverse. While most other Wonder Woman boxes either focused on just Diana or some other characters, this box focused on a wide variety of different and diverse female characters from comic books that all kick ass! I loved this box and I loved that there were so many items in this box. The estimated price of the box is at least $48.65, which is way over the $38 you pay for the box and this doesn’t count how much the artwork and the items that Kailey pays each month for the box like the wrapping paper and the boxes. I believe there are still some boxes available on the website so go grab yours before they’re sold out!
