Another bookish subscription box, another unboxing. I only recently heard about LitJoy Crate, so I figured I'd check it out. The theme was Dark Fairytales, so let's take a look.
The first thing I pulled out was this packet of notecards. I'm not too sure what it had to do with the box's theme, but I can always use more stationery.
Yaaaaas, I can never have enough bookmarks and this one by Drawn to the Pages is gorgeous. I love the design and the quote is from Stardust, which is one of my favorite Neil Gaiman books.
I was really excited to see this LitJoy exclusive Labyrinth inspired pouch. You don't see much Labyrinth items in bookish subscription boxes, and I love that movie so much, so this was a really nice touch.
You can't have a box about dark things without including witches, and who're better than the Sanderson sisters? This design by EvieBookish is so colorful and has just the right amount of spooky touches. I love it and the quality is really nice as well.
The book they sent was Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd. Seventeen year old Anouk is a Beastie, enchanted to change form between human an animal. Due to this, Anouk can only watch in envy at the lavish lives of the people known as Pretties. While they're out in high fashion and fast cars, she is trapped within her Parisian prison, destined for a life surrounded by dust bunnies and cinders serving the evil witch who spelled her into existence. That is until one day Anouk finds her master dead in a pool of blood, and that she is accused of the crime. Anouk and her other Beastie friends only have three days to find the real killer before the spell keeping them human fades and they'll stay beasts forever.
