Once Upon A Book Club Book Clubbers receive a newly released novel and wrapped gifts labeled with page numbers. As they read the featured book, they’re prompted only to open the gifts when they reach the specified page number. Women and the majority of curated boxes are sourced with female readers in mind, mainly featuring strong female characters.
You can also jump into the Once Upon A Book Club exclusive FB chat group to discuss the book with other members of the community. It's all the wonder of a book club without leaving your living room!
The Spooky Halloween Box 2021 Edition Includes:
"Lightning encompasses my home, flashing through every gap in the curtains and under every door, and the under's reverberations run through my veins, vibrating my atoms, and I feel as though I am disintegrating. I loosen my fist and a cascade of pale salt pours free."
- a jar of Whispering Forest, Natural Bath Salt.
"A hinge groans as the door at the end of the hallway drags open. I feel for the flashlight in my pocket, but I no longer need it. A candle lights the darkest reaches of the hall. Bloodred and clasped between interlaced fingers. The intruder emerges from its darkened room."
- a white pillar candle with blood-dripped wax on the sides.
"The foreign sound is louder. It's not dead branches. And it's not rain. It's voices. Coming from near my bed. A small red light flashes there, standing out among the shadowed shapes. The radio is switched on."
- a die-cut radio bookmark with a QR code to the sounds of the novel.
"First, he wiped the knife on his jeans, then tucked it back into his belt with shaking hands. Then he reached for the quilt on my bed. It went around my body like a colorful shroud."
- a custom-designed, muslin blanket quilt in muted tones. (hand wash only)
My Opinion: This is a great box as the book had me hooked on the first page, The candle is so cool looking for Halloween. The bath salts are perfect for relaxing in the tub with candles lit, maybe reading as you soak and relax. The blanket says Aespo’s Fable but you don’t open the gifts until you get to that page which makes it more exciting. I truly loved all the gifts picked out for this month’s themed Once Upon A Book Club.
