Illumicrate unboxing – May 2021 “Change your stars”

Hey everyone! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! Last Friday I finally got my May box from Illumicrate and oh my god, I loved it! Today I’m going to take a look at everything so do stop reading if you don’t want to be spoiled πŸ‘€

Let's go!
The items

I really liked the items included this month, and I can’t wait to use them 😍

a picture of the items as described below
  • Staryk Castle book sleeve : how gorgeous is it?! I have yet to read Spinning Silver β€” I knoooow, I’m so behind! β€” but wow, I do adore this book sleeve and I can see myself using it next Winter when covid will be behind us β€” yes, I’m optimistic, it’s a question of survival β€” and I’ll go read in a cafΓ© πŸ₯°
  • Girls of Paper and Fire dress enamel pin : so, I have to admit that I have yet to find a use for pins β€” I’m finally getting new bookshelves this Summer so I’ll have to think about a way to show them off! If y’all have ideas…?
  • Elemental Creatures tea tin : probably my favorite item this month! It’s inspired by the Daevabad Trilogy that I haven’t read β€” I’m hesitant because trusted reviewers didn’t like the last book β€” but I love tea and I mean, look at this beauty 😭 I love it!
  • M-Bot Illumikey : again an item inspired by a book I won’t read, Skyward β€” and I don’t really care for it, but oh well, it happens πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ
the book

The Jasmine Throne was one of my most-anticipated releases of the year so I’m ecstatic to own such a beautiful edition!

I’m reading it right now and so far I adore it!

That’s it for today! I hope you’re doing great! Tell me, do you have a book box subscription? Have you read The Jasmine Throne?
