I got my first LitJoy Crate last month and loved it! I think I’ll be holding on to this subscription box for a while–the items are fun and the book selection is great!
Theme: “Poor Unfortunate Souls”
This month’s featured book was To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo. I almost pre-orded this book, so I’m glad I held off! The book came with a signed book plate.
Book Description (from Goodreads): Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most—a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever.
The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavory hobby—it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good—But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy?
LitJoy Exclusive Seashell Lights
This month’s box included a set of battery-operated seashell lights. They match this month’s theme well, though I’m not sure how often I’ll use them.
I love these compass earrings! They’re very cute. If I don’t wear them, my daughter surely will. This was a nice addition.
Bookmark and Pin
A Swoon Reads button pin and bookmark were also included in this month’s box. I’ve added the bookmark to my ever-growing collection of bookmarks. I love the pin!
LitJoy Exclusive Mermaid Pillowcase
I love mermaid pillows! They’re so much fun. This one is shiny gold on one side and a matte cream on the other side. I’m keeping it in my bedroom.
Faux Fur Heart-of-the-Sea Keychain
This keychain is so fuzzy and soft! This was an item my daughter quickly secreted away to her room.
The LitJoy box came with literature explaining the “Poor Unfortunate Souls” crate, as well as an artist print and sticker. The artist print and cover art were designed by Manelle Oliphant. The Ariel vinyl sticker was designed by Melisa of NerdyGrlDesigns.
