A little change from our usual Tuesday post seeing as I am having a teeny tiny break from baking before the Halloween treat creating madness occurs. Also a little change because I woke up this week with a trapped nerve in my lower back. So Monday evening was all about relaxing rather than baking and luckily for me my Wildest Dreams Box arrived just in time!
What is the Wildest Dreams Box I here you mutter. Well, it’s only the best subscription box ever! Basically, once a month a newly released YA book is sent out to you through the post alongside other book related products such as tea personalised to the book of the month and other bath or body products. This months box is my first ever delivery after signing up to the Wildest Dreams subscription so let’s see what is inside!
So lets jump to the main event which is the book that is featured in this months box. This book is called The Boneless Mercies written by April Genevieve Tucholke and according to the blurb ‘This is a story of Mercies and witches, of reeds and thorns, of woman and giants’.
Obviously it had already captured my imagination from its description and I could not wait to jump in and get started reading. In fact, I ended up beginning this book while sitting on the bathroom floor waiting for my tea to brew and bath to fill and I can tell you now it was a difficult one to put down as it had me hooked from the very first chapter.
Now, I bloody love a good cup of tea!! Nothing else can calm me like tea can, especially when I am feeling under the weather or a little blue. So as mentioned above every box also includes a special blend of tea that is personalised to the book and the pack that arrived in this months box is called ‘It’s a Monsters World’ which is toffee, pumpkin and liquorice flavoured. I know that seems a weird combo but it actually smells and tastes ridiculously nice! I have a loose leaf tea-pot so I’m going to make this tea in that however you are also kindly gifted some disposable tea bags if needs be.
This months box also contained a handmade bath bomb and its little tag stated it was inspired by the Vampire Diaries series. This bath bomb smelt amazing! It was infused with patchouli which is a scent I love and vanilla as well as having notes of rose absolute, orange and jasmine which created this beautiful sweet but musky fragrance. It also turned my water jet black (see the first image) which was a surprise as the bath bomb was dark grey in colour so that was cool!
Other bits and bobs!
There was also some little extras in this box that I loved! It really made me feel that this box was more personal and more thought through unlike other subscription boxes which is nice! I received two jelly eyeball sweets which obviously got eaten as soon as the box was opened, a little syringe pen which I thought was a fake blood sugar syrup shot or something at first because you know, food is always my first thought. A bookmark was also included, a mini book review card that I can fill out about this months featured book and also what I assume is the signature of April Genevieve Tucholke (The featured books author) alongside a little note of what is included in this months box. How cute!
And that is that! I honestly cannot express with words how excited I am about finding this subscription box and if you are a book lover then I fully recommend you check out the Wildest Dreams Box website! Also day 16 of blogtober! Whattt! I’m into the last half of the blogtober challenge now so thank you to everyone who has been reading along so far as well as everyone who has left comments on my previous posts, it is really inspiring me to keep on target for posting every day of this month!
