November 2016 The YA Chronicles Subscription Box Unboxing + other mail!


Today I recieved my The YA Chronicles Subscription Box in the mail! And also another piece of mail that will be at the bottom of this post! As always I will post all the needed information about the subscription box and links!

What You Need To Know About the Subscription Box

The YA Chronicles is based in Australia so for me this is great, being Australian the shipping is pretty cheap and the box gets to me quickly!

Here is the link to their website!

It says on the website that there is international shipping, so I’m assuming they ship everywhere, so I’m sorry if they don’t ship to your country!

I will only be posting costing in AUD, so if you want to know what it would cost in your country then you can go here to convert it, or comment your currency and I will tell you.

Cost of the Box: $29.99 AUD
Shipping to Aus and NZ: $9.99 AUD (this includes tracking)
Shipping internationally: $24.99 AUD (this includes tracking)

Also, this subscription box is not automatically recurring, so you do have to purchase it every month, which is good because it means you can easily pick and choose the themes that you want to purchase

In this box every month, you receive a new release paperback YA book, a TYAC bookmark with that month’s theme on the back and 2-5 other bookish items. Each month is themed and the theme is announced as soon as the subscription box goes on sale!

What I received this month!

Volume Fifteen: Welcome to Wonderland

I will write under each photo what is written on the description card that you get in the box.


Alice in Wonderland magnetic bookmarks


Our first item of the month is from the wonderful Readandwonder store on etsy (previously thestickeralley). Make use of your new Queen of Hearts and Cheshire Cat magnetic bookmarks while you read through Heartless and fall in love with the chacters in the book.

Vanilla Rooibos Loose-Leaf Tea

No mad hatter party is complete without this next item. Steep a cup of Vanilla Rooibos Loose-Leaf Tea from West End Co. and bask in the taste and aroma as you read. It’s a combination of sweet and spicy with a mildly nutty finish and smooth Vanilla bean.

Heart Tea Infuser Spoon


Don’t have a teapot to steep your new tea? No Problem! We have provided a heart shaped tea infuser spoon. Just fill the heart up with the loose leaf tea, bring the two halves together,  and let steep in a mug of boiling water.

Heartless by Marissa Meyer


Long before she was the terror of Wonderland, Catherine was just a girl who wanted to fall in love. How does a young girl who wants nothing more than to open up a bakery so that she can share her delicious treats with the entire land, turn into the infamous queen of hearts? We all know how her story, but how does she get there? Read our book of the month, heartless by Marissa Meyer, to find out!

Goodreads Synopsis

Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland and a favorite of the unmarried King, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, she wants to open a shop and create delectable pastries. But for her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for a woman who could be a queen.

At a royal ball where Cath is expected to receive the King’s marriage proposal, she meets handsome and mysterious Jest. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the King and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into a secret courtship.

Cath is determined to choose her own destiny. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.

Item Info Card


The YA Chronicles Bookmark



So, like I said I also got some other mail, which isn’t really book related but I am excited about it! If you don’t know what a popsocket is then you reallt need to! Popsockets are a small circular colabsable thing that goes of the back of your phone. They make it easy to hold onto phones and also creates a stand so you can stand an iphone up on it’s side. On an ipad 2 popsockets make it a lot easier to hold onto!

I already had 2, but I bought 4 new ones!

Here is the link to their online store HERE!





Let me know if you recommend any subscription boxes that I should get! Especially if you are Australian too!
