Book Box Guesses, Bookish

Book Box Guesses: June 2020

It’s no secret that I’m a book box lover. Part of the fun is trying to guess the upcoming month’s books (even if I don’t subscribe). Here’s a round up of what I think will be in the upcoming month’s boxes. I’ll update this post as new themes are revealed.

If you’d like to play along, drop your guesses in the comments and I’ll add them to the post! If you think I’m wrong, please leave a comment as to which book is a better fit.

Let me know if I’m missing a box you think should be added to the list.

I STRONGLY urge you to research a box before buying or subscribing. There’s been some shady behavior lately and you don’t want to get caught up in it.

Beacon Book Box: Seasons of the Storm

View this post on Instagram

ATTENTION BOOKWORMS! It is time to announce our June box theme… BREAKING THE CYCLE! 🌧️ To start with, we are thrilled to announce that our June box will include the second of four QUARTERLY COLLECTIBLE MUGS. We have teamed up with the amazing @dianadworak to bring you FOUR mugs inspired by Sarah J. Maas’ A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES. The amount of detail Diana has put into the artwork is absolutely incredible and we are stunned at how GORGEOUS the art is. June’s artwork hint is NIGHT COURT! 🌧️ Our June box celebrates and explores the worlds of YA books filled with adventure, romance and the idea of breaking barriers. 🌧️ Our June book of the month will transport you to a lush contemporary fantasy world where humans are physical embodiments of seasons and, in order for the seasons to change throughout the year, they must hunt one another. For example, for spring to arrive, Spring has to kill Winter. Isn’t that epic?! I (Cam) read an advanced copy of the book and cannot sing enough praise for it. I was intrigued from the very start and fell in love with the adventure-filled story. This is a book you seriously cannot miss out on! 🌧️ The book will be SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR! You can expect an author letter to accompany it ☺️. 🌧️ This epic book is perfect for fans of V.E. Schwab, Sara Holland and Kiera Cass! 🌧️ Fandoms being represented include A COURT OF MIST AND FURY, SCYTHE, PERCY JACKSON and FLAME IN THE MIST! With all of these epic fandoms, this box will truly be one not to miss. 🌧️ Beacon Booksleeves are BACK since June is an even-numbered month! This month’s fabric hint is CELEBRATION and customers will receive one of three fabric options. 🌧️ This box will include our sixth 2020 monthly collectible item, glass ornaments! This months’ ornament is inspired by SCYTHE and is seriously stunning!! 🌧️ June boxes are available NOW for subscriptions and single purchases! ✨. Due to the ACOTAR mug, fandoms and book we are including in this box, we do expect them to sell out fast. We have stocked up but cannot guarantee how long stock will last! Please note June boxes will be shipping around June 23rd as the book releases a week later. Epic artwork by @littlebearries

We are thrilled to reveal that this box will have TWO books! The second book in this box is a YA release that won’t be released until spring 2021… and this beautiful paperback edition will have an EXCLUSIVE FOIL-FILLED COVER and SPRAYED EDGES! 💚 Our featured book of the month is a tale of destiny and sisterhood, filled with shaman magic.

Fox & Wit: Sisters of Sword and Song

View this post on Instagram

June’s book is a beautiful fantasy novel with heavy greek mythology influence. It’s a story about two sisters who learn that strengths come in different forms and their sisterly bond, no matter how tested, will endure. The book itself will be sprayed.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We originally planned a super cool greek themed box but alas, with the pandemic all our merch are stuck overseas and has transit since February. Rather than risk late shipment because who knows when the merch will arrive, I decided to swap out the box contents for items we already had on hand and planned for later this year.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know that roaring 20s doesn’t have anything to do with our themed book this month but it will be a fantastic bookstagram prop box! One item is super expensive and retails for $14-20 depending on where you purchase it from. Please note that this will not have as many items as our normal bookstagram prop boxes because the items will be far more expensive and are “larger” items. Between the book and the props, we’re looking at a retail value of at least $49.99.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Subscribe via link in bio. •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •#readingislife #fortheloveofbooks #readersgonnaread #bookcommunity #bookishlove #booklion #avidreader #bookstagramcommunity #booksonbooks #igbooks ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bookstagrammer #bookphotography #instabook #bookaholic #bookboxsubcription #becauseofreading #booksofinstagram #readersofinstagram #booktography #bookaddiction #bookaesthetic #instareads #foxandwit #bookstagram #bookishmerch #bookishmerchfeatures #bookmerch #booksubscriptionbox #booksubscription.

Unicorn Crate: Sisters of Sword and Song

Original selected book publication is being postponed. New book selection is a June release so this will now be the June box.

View this post on Instagram

Update!🦄 I’ve chosen an alternate book for the “May” crate (which will ship in June as the new selection is a June release). I’m calling it the May/June crate now. ✨ I am absolutely in love with this book and it might be even more perfect for the “Inner Strength” theme than the previous selection (which got postponed until Feb. 2021). I’m really excited for this June release to be a Unicorn Crate feature! 💗 . . So, 🥁 the title will be a June YA hardcover stand-alone, chock-full of characters drawing on their inner strength. It follows the story of two sisters with an unbreakable bond and the trials, journeys, and battles they must endure. I found the magic, setting (with threads of Greek mythology), and characters to be utterly captivating, and the writing beautifully crafted. It’s sure to be a new favorite (it’s certainly one of mine this year). There will be a note from the author and signed bookplates. Ages 14+ . . . Publishers have told me things are literally changing every week with book release dates getting postponed because of all that’s happening in the world right now so I realllly hope this one’s pub date holds steady. 🤞🏼 It’s looking like it will. . . I’ve already begun ordering goodies for this box, so there are a set number available (only 7 left before preorders close). . . . . #yafantasybooks #yafantasy #bookbox #unicorncrate #yabookstagram #yabookbox #unicornart #innerstrength #bookishlife #stayhomeandread #staysafereadbooks

  1. What about the final Quarterly Box from Spearcraft that ships in June? Any ideas there?

    It’s time to announce our YA Summer Quarterly Box theme!! Our theme is The Goddess Within and we are so excited to show you this one. This box will be very special as this will be our final quarterly box. Our book for this box is a gorgeous new hardcover that has a cover to swoon over. Our story is a thrilling new fantasy about two sisters and the lengths they will go to for each other. It’s Gorgeously crafted with an alchemy of gods, mages, and a lush world we know you will love it as much as we did. Fandoms this month will include: Percy Jackson Ember in the Ashes Sky In the Deep and more! This box is available for purchase right now as a subscription or a one time box. Please note as a subscription this will not be renewing in the fall as this is our last box of this type. We will cancel the subscription shortly after your purchase but you will still get the box. These will go very fast as all our quarterly boxes do so don’t hesitate to grab one last box.

  2. Seasons Of The Storm & Sisters Of Sword And Song seem very popular this month! They both sound super interesting though and I had no idea that the second one involved Greek mythology. I literally can not wait for Where Dreams Descend (but have to because it’s been pushed back a few months 😦 ) and I was thinking Gilded One for the second FairyLoot book too. It would make sense as it was originally a 2020 release then got pushed to next year.

    Like

  3. My guess for Fairyloot’s second book is Of Silver and Shadow by Jennifer Gruenke. This book was also postponed to early 2021, but the main reason it stood out to me is that it’s being released in paperback and Fairyloot’s post references it being paperback. (Gilded Ones is being published in hardcover.) I’m newer to subscription boxes so I don’t have much experience, but from all of the past box photos I’ve seen it doesn’t look like any subscription boxes have gotten paperbacks for books that were released in hardcover.

    Like

      1. Very good point, I totally forgot about that. The Gilded Ones and Of Silver and Shadow both sound really good, so the only small disappointment will be having to wait until February for whichever isn’t in the June box.
