My the YA Chronicles subscription box came today! So here is my unboxing! I will again put the price of each item underneath it and at the end add it up to see the value of the 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.
Cost of the Box: $39.99 AUD
Shipping to Aus and NZ: $9.99 AUD (this includes tracking)
Shipping internationally: $24.99 AUD (this includes tracking)
They have closed sales for the pride box but you can preorder the Tower of Dawn box. There are 3 options for this box. One is the UK paperback + goodies, the second is US Hardcover + goodies and the last is the UK paperback, US hardcover + goodies.
Also, this subscription box is not automatically recurring, so you do have to purchase it every month, which is good and bad because it means you can easily pick and choose the themes that you want to purchase but also you have to remember to get in before it sells out!
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!
Volume Twenty one, I see fire
As always, I will write under each photo what is written on the description card that you get in the box. I’m also going to add pricing or a guess at pricing to see if this box is worth the new pricing.
We love this FireHeart candle from Kozy Korner Boutique on Etsy. Inspired by our favourite Fae assassin, this candle smells of honeysuckle, peony & sandalwood. Light the fire and let the scent fill the room.
I don’t know who or what book this candle is inspired by as I don’t know who ‘our favourite Fae assassin’ is! So if you know let me know in the comments.
Candles this size are priced $15 on their etsy store, which you can find HERE!
Catching Fire Blind Bag
In honour of the girl on fire, we’ve included catching fire blind bags from Ikon Collections.
I’m guessing this is the girl from District 4 in the 74th Hunger Games because in Catching Fire the female tribute was Mags and that’s not Mags.. So that’s what I’m guessing. These are worth $3.99 each.
Sailor Moon Socks
Sailor Mars is one of the best sailor scouts. So we’ve included these super cute sailor Mars socks! Wear yours under your boots for that extra protection against evil.
I found these on some random website and they were $9.90 USD which is $13.30 in AUD.
Fire Nation Bracelet
Life is calm and peaceful, “but everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.” Be part of the club wit this Fire Nation bracelet inspired by Avatar and the Legend of Korra.
I can’t find this but you can purchase bracelets with the same image but metal on eBay for around $1.
If you’re anything like us than tabs are a must when reading a good book. Use this Dragon sticky tab booklet while reading Flame in the Mist and tav your favourite parts.
This doesn’t have any branding on it but you can get these types of things for about $4 at cheap shops.
Book Folding Pattern
Dogearforart on etsy has created this gorgeous Aelin Silhouette book folding pattern and we just had to include it. Get creative and make your own
I honestly don’t know how to price this.
Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh
Mariko knows her fate – a political marriage to the son of the emperor’s favourite consort. But when she learns that the black clan have been hired to kill her before she reaches the palace, Mariko takes matters into her own hands. Determined to track down the person responsible for the target on her back. Shs is pulled deeper into the Black Clan where she uncovers a dark history of secrets, of betrayal and murder, which will force her to question everything she’s ever known. You’ll get all of this and more in our book of the month: Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh.
I have already read this book as I received an eGalley of it! You can find my review for it HERE.
This book is $17.81 on Book Depository! You can find it here.
So this box added up to $55.10 not including the Book folding pattern and the book costs about $50 with the Australian shipping.
Overall this book was alright. I don’t watch Sailor Moon and I never plan to, so the socks are useless to me and the bracelet wouldn’t fit me, so I can’t wear that if I wanted to..
