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:
THE DICKENS TWIST
At a first glance looking into the box this is what you see.
The book in this month’s box is:
I have already read and reviewed this book so that I could complete this unboxing. If you would like to see my review for this book, click here.
Each month there is also a quote card with a quote from the book.
There is also the monthly brochure with discussion questions, gift reveal dates and the opportunity to win a gift.
The first gift is on page 47 and is marked with this sticky note.
This wrapping was adorable.
The gift is this brown newsboy cap which I have used already. It is a really useful item that I love.
The next gift is on page 110.
The gift is in this little faux velvet box.
The gift is this beautiful locket.
And inside is a picture of Olivia’s mother.
The third gift is to be opened on page 204.
The packaging for this gift was intriguing.
The gift was a letter that was in the book. It was thrown through a window wrapped around a rock. To complete the gift there is a rock tea light holder.
The fourth and final gift is to be opened on page 313.
The gift is this key that opens a safe deposit box in the book. What’s in the box? You’ll have to read the book to find out.
I hope you enjoyed this unboxing and can see how the gifts really tie into the story. This is a really fun way to do a subscription box and definitely engages the readers.
