Once Upon A YA Book Club is a book subscription box with a little bit of a difference. The goodies inside correspond to items in the chosen book. I loved the idea of an interactive subscription service with a read-a-long and gifts that you opened as you got to certain parts of the book. The gifts link into the story and add the extra element. The theme for the May 2018 box was:
