Let us just all agree that BOOK SUBSCRIPTION boxes are beautiful wonderful things.
*this is a scheduled post I am truly on hiatus and will be back in Febuuary
There are so many reasons why I love book boxes and that is because 1) MORE BOOKS 2) so many little surprises and 3) normally get loads of bookish stuff for a bargain price?? So like I am completely in love with bookish boxes and receiving them and stalking their Instagrams is also TONNES of fun.
So that’s why today I’m going to be unboxing a Page Habit Young Adult Book Box. This was November 2017’s one and the post is really late for various reasons but it’s HERE NOW ISN’T IT. I personally love unboxing posts/videos so hopefully, you guys will enjoy this too? maybe? who knows?
Disclaimer: I received this book for free from Page Habit in exchange for a review.
So it comes in this super simplistic cute brown box. It’s quite small but it has SO many goodies in it and I love that’s it’s so compact!
So you open it up, and the first item is a gorgeous tote bag. It’s quite a small one but I am in LOVE with the design. It’s so simplistic and the doodle design on it is actually so pretty HOW THE HECK?! Ahh, I am actually in love with this and plan on using it on library trips because now I can carry my massive book hauls home without dying? Perfect.
The next thing it comes with is TWO BOOKMARKS which are so UNIQUE. The first one is a Page Habit bookmark which has a super relatable quote on it plus it’s so funky and I just adore it!! And then it also comes with a magnifying glass bookmark WHICH IS SUCH A GOOD IDEA I AM SCREAMING. 10//10 marks for bookmarks here, am I right or am I right?
And then, as if this book box can’t get any better we have a short, mini, adorable story about owls AND I LOVE OWLS so this is perfect? It’s such a great idea and a perfect whimsical touch to the box.
The last goodie is my FAVOURITE ITEM of the whole entire book box and that is the light up keychain! This comes with 75 letter stickers and umm…IT LIGHTS UP?! I mean obviously it does but you can write anything and I wrote Ilsa because I am QUEEN. I just love putting this on and off. It’s so much fun honestly.
Now, we have the ACTUAL BOOK for this November YA Book Box and I am pleased to say it was…
Haven by Mary Lindsey!! This looks like such a dark and thrilling read and absolutely enticing however I don’t like this genre so i gave the book away but for any of you thriller lovers out there, I would have this book on your radar.
BUT IT DOSEN’T STOP THERE. The book is (1) ANNOTATED BY THE AUTHOR WITH STICKY NOTES and (2) COMES WITH A HANDWRITTEN LETTER FROM THE AUTHOR. I mean??? THAT IS SO EPIC! It’s such a personalised box and that is just one of the things I absolutely admire about Page Habit. It’s like a bridge between author and bookworm and that is such a special thing. Ahhhh.
If you don’t know what Haven is about:
- It’s like Beauty and the beast but in reverse.
- I’m mind blown too to be honest.
- There’s an orphan called Rain and he is little out of ordinary and always feeling out of the place
- and YES I LOVE THE NAME RAIN TOO.
- He meets Freddie
- Who is also “not like normal teen girls” apparently slightly annoyed about how this phrase is worded on the Goodreads blurb. wtf does that even mean???
- And she might be killed and Rain wants to save her.
A quick rundown of everything included:
- Haven by Mary Lindsey (Hardback)
- A handwritten, gorgeous latter from the author
- A mini story “The Truth about Owls”
- Bookmark magnifying glass (i love it so much)
- Page Habit bookmark with quote

WHY I THINK PAGE HABIT IS THE BEST.
So I haven’t mentioned this previously but I will now. Why i think Page Habit is so special is that for every box your purchase, a donation is made to children’s literary globally.
“PageHabit is founded on the simple belief that reading is for everyone.” I love that every month, without fail, Page Habit partner with so many different organisations to get books into the hands of all children. It literally warms my heart that they do this.
Most of us are very lucky bookworms but there a lot of children who don’t have access to reading and books and guys…just imagine that? That is why Page Habit is so incredibly important. Reading is essential to any bookworm life and Page Habit helps build connections and start to remove illiteracy (a global problem). Page Habit expands a child’s opportunities and that’s why purchasing a box is extremely beneficial.
“In addition, for every PageHabit unboxing photo tagged with #mypagehabit across social media, we will make another donation to support this cause.” THIS IS WHY I LOVE PAGE HABIT OKAY!?
January’s pick is a magical fantasy where necromancers battle a nemesis exploiting their power.
I have already guessed what this is and AM EXTREMELY EXCITED FOR IT OMG!!! It is a very hyped book is all I will say.
