Lit-Cube Oz Box Reveal!

If you remember correctly, a few weeks ago I gave you a good run down on several Book Subscription boxes that are available. If you missed that and are a fan of books and fun mail, definitely check that post out and maybe find something that will work for your budget and tastes. In that post I told you I had signed up for Lit-Cube and I already received my first box. I missed the original sign up for the Oz box, but if you follow them on Facebook, sometimes they have extras and you can order them after the fact, and that's what I did. So here is what my $34.98 (after shipping) got me:

The box! Admittedly, I pretty much almost tackled the mail man off of my front porch. He was not pleased.
Inside is a glossy printed card detailing the items in your box, their value, and where to get more should you want to. I absolutely LOVE this detail because one of the items is from an Etsy shop and I love that advertising, but also because you know where your money went. If I added up the value, it comes to just under $44 worth of items, and my total was $34.98 but that included the shipping of the box to me.
So you'll see I was getting a book, a handmade necklace, a book mark, a poster and a magazine- not a bad haul!
This is what the box looked like once I opened it up, packaged very nicely.
A Dorothy Poster (11x17) which I'll get a frame for and hang up in my library/office room.
Oh, all of my stuff laid out. I also got a sucker, a couple of magnets and a signed book sticker from the author, which I put in the inside cover of my book.
Kind of a nice touch to have your book basically signed!
Let's talk about my favorite item in the box- the "oz inspired Origami necklace" from STCHandmade. I think my favorite thing about the LitCube is that they feature from things, often from Etsy shops and you know I love Etsy. The necklace itself is absolutely gorgeous, the packaging is top notch and I'm not even keeping it for myself. I know someone who would really love this and let's cross one thing off my Christmas shopping list!

Tomorrow I'll formally review the book Spelled for you, so come back for that, but a teaser... I didn't LOVE it. It wasn't awful, but I didn't totally LOVE it. If I have to compare LitCube to The Bookworm Box? I love LitCube's stuff and The Bookworm Box's books. I am still signed up for The Bookworm Box as it takes a hiatus in September, and I'm also signed up for LitCube. The next box is "We Will Never Be Royals" theme and a shirt is going to be included. I am ridiculously excited!

We Will Never Be Royals is an intriguing theme! Can't wait to see that! This is so cool. I love getting fun mail, but I'm not big into beauty products and I prefer to buy my clothes from my tried and true places, so this is a subscription box I would consider!

Okay, 1) It's so great to be back here and I hope all is well with you and baby :)
2) What a great subscription box! I love the signed book sticker--and all of the other items you got. I'm kind of in it for the book alone, TBH, but that's because I'm a nerd and I love getting reading material in the mail :)

Hope all is well with you momma!!

This is so cool! I had never heard of this box before - my sister would love it!

I'm not a huge fan of Wizard of Oz but I'm loving everything in this box. I have to know how that book is.

How fun! I love themed gifts, where it all goes together. When I review certain books, I sometimes add in another item you could pair with it to Make it a Gift, so this reminds me of that. :) Thanks for sharing - I'm going to be featuring a bunch of different (not just book related) subscription services this month so keep an eye out. :)
