It’s that time of the month again! Time for another Enchanted Book Box unboxing! This month’s theme was Survival and it focused on Dystopians which is my favorite book genre!
The first items from the box are this room spray from Belle and Co Candle Makers, a candle from Novel Heartbeat, and some bath salts from The Soap Librarian. The room spray from Belle and Co is called Anti-Virus and smells of woody embers and spice. Bell and Co have an app on their website where you can make your own room spray for 9 USD. The candle from Novel Heartbeat is in the scent of AIDAN from our favorite mass murdering AI in Illuminae. It smells of strawberry shortcake and the two ounce retails for about 3.50 USD. The bath salts from The Soap Librarian are in the scent Green Apple and they have dried apples in them. Her bath salts retail for 14 USD.
The next group of items from the box include the info card art, two bookmarks from Book Coyote Designs, and a HUnger Games inspired pouch. The pouch comes from an unknown origin but should retail for about 3 USD if Kailey printed the design on the bag herself. The bookmarks are custom made from Book Coyote Designs. Her bookmarks retail for 2.80 USD each. And the artwork is from Johny Fox Art.
Lastly, we have a tattoo from Bookmark’d Tattoos and the book! Based on the size, the tattoo would probably retail at 4.25 and Katie makes such cute bookmarks! She and Kailey worked together to replicate something from the book in tatoo form, so you can definitely read this book and apply your tattoo on at the same time. Even if you didn’t get this box, you should definitely go check them out and grab one for your friends as a cute stocking stuffer! The book for this month was This Mortal Coil! The book came with a signed bookplate and a letter from the author. Here is a blurb about the book:
In this gripping debut novel, seventeen-year-old Cat must use her gene-hacking skills to decode her late father’s message concealing a vaccine to a horrifying plague.
Catarina Agatta is a hacker. She can cripple mainframes and crash through firewalls, but that’s not what makes her special. In Cat’s world, people are implanted with technology to recode their DNA, allowing them to change their bodies in any way they want. And Cat happens to be a gene-hacking genius.
That’s no surprise, since Cat’s father is Dr. Lachlan Agatta, a legendary geneticist who may be the last hope for defeating a plague that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. But during the outbreak, Lachlan was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called Cartaxus, leaving Cat to survive the last two years on her own.
When a Cartaxus soldier, Cole, arrives with news that her father has been killed, Cat’s instincts tell her it’s just another Cartaxus lie. But Cole also brings a message: before Lachlan died, he managed to create a vaccine, and Cole needs Cat’s help to release it and save the human race.
Now Cat must decide who she can trust: The soldier with secrets of his own? The father who made her promise to hide from Cartaxus at all costs? In a world where nature itself can be rewritten, how much can she even trust herself? – Amazon.com
The book is retailing on Amazon for 11.62 USD and I’m definitely excited to read this book for the Hot Mess Book Club!
Estimated Price of the Box: 50.97 USD!
