I recently received the YA Chronicles April box themed “Bippity Boppity Book” and, as it stands, this is only the second box I have bought off of them other than the ACOWAR box back in May. Even though this unboxing is technically two months late I’m going to go ahead and unbox it and show you all what I find inside.
NOTE: While I am writing this unboxing (22nd of June), there are still a few of these boxes up for grabs on the YA Chronicles website for once off purchase.
Can one have too much stationary? The answer is no you can’t, especially if that stationary happens to be related to Harry Potter. The first item that I have pulled out is this notebook is from Literary Emporium which I believe has done some notebooks for other subscription boxes that I have received and I love and use them each time.
Next is a gorgeous Cinderella and Fairy Godmother art print by Loliefreta (Suddenly the theme for this box makes so much more sense). I love receiving art prints in boxes even if I don’t really have anywhere to put them. I just so happen to be a collector of things so it doesn’t bother me much.
While this may sound strange but I think that this little Night Circus ticket may just be my favourite item in this whole box! It really doesn’t have much purpose (you could probably use it as a bookmark if you wanted to) but it’s just one of those things that is really cool to own and display on your shelf.
Next we have a set of A Darker Shade of Magic magnetic bookmarks from Read and Wonder. I believe the characters are Alucard and Rhy but while I do love Read and Wonder bookmarks, I haven’t actually read A Darker Shade of Magic yet so when I do I will probably love these a lot more than I do currently (which is a lot BTW).
The last bookish item before we move onto the pièce de résistance is an absolutely adorable Niffler keyring from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. This is honestly the cutest keyring I own but I’ll probably only use it once the keyring I currently have on my car keys breaks or falls off. Until that point it will just have to live with my other spare keyrings in a mug on my bookshelf.
The book for April is THE SECRET SCIENCE OF MAGIC by Melissa Kiel and it comes with a little promo playing card which says it is from #LoveOzYA (YAYYY!! An Australian author!).
A captivating novel about two extraordinary teens, and the unsolvable problem of life after high school.
Sophia is smart, like genius-calculator-brain smart. But there are some things no amount of genius can prepare you for, and the messiness of real life is one of them. When everything she knows is falling apart, how can she crack the puzzle of what to do with her life?
Joshua spends his time honing magic tricks and planning how to win Sophia’s heart. But when your best trick is making schoolwork disappear, how do you possibly romance a genius?
In life and love, timing is everything.
This book sounds super cute and, while I haven’t personally read any of Melissa’s other novels, I do know people who have and who have loved them.
Sum of All Points:
I love how small businesses and a less well known author were included in this box (I always love to see that they are Australian as well). Overall, I think this was a great box and all the goodies are magical in some way as to relate back to the rather magical theme.
