Book Box Review: The Unplugged Box (don't judge me)

One of the best things are book boxes. I know, I've gone on and off with them for years and everyone is like, "God, SARA! Do you need any of this?!".


No, I don't, and I don't care Mr. Judgey Pants.

On Instagram randomly one day I saw a sponsored ad for Unplugged Book Box and after some sleuthing at past boxes, I decided to give it a try. They have a YA box and an Adult fiction box, promising to mail out a new release book. I chose the YA box because adult fiction is always kind of broad and hit or miss for me. At least with a YA, if I don't like it Olivia or Jackson might so there's more use of the book.
My first box came, the May 2019 box, and I was pretty damn excited, almost attacking the mail man. Even HE was judgey and said he thought I was done with these. It's pretty bad when the mailman (who I know from high school) is making comments about my mail. 
I had to wait until nap time before I could open it. So as soon as you open it you noticed that everything is individually wrapped and the post card detailing your box is on top. 
I have always loved this quote, so it is obviously a sign that this box is meant for me. 
Here's what we got, a cool candle (that doesn't smell that bad, actually), a compact mirror and a chapstick (which Olivia has already stolen from me)...
a mason jar glass that says, "We you can't beat the odds, change the game", a face mask, and a pair of Harry Potter house socks...
and the book EVERY MOMENT AFTER by Joseph Moldover. It's about high school friends dealing with the fallout of a school shooting that left many of their classmates and friends dead. Is it one that I would pick up out of a store? No, but it's pretty relevant to current times so I'm interested in giving this one a chance.
We also got a card telling us what the June YA Summer box is going to be, "Create Your Own Sunshine". That sounds pretty promising, so I'm excited.

Now the big question.... should I start The Bookworm Box again? You know how I love a good romance novel. OR should I do Owlcrate again? OR BOTH??

(If you're my friend, you would say, "Of course you do both, Sara!")

I love how everything is a sign that you were meant to get the box. I like how you rationalize... uh, I mean, think. ;-) The only box I've ever done is the Bookworm Box and I finally unsubscribed after 2+ years. I was getting too many books by totally unknown authors. And I know, I know... great opportunity to try new authors, blah blah blah, but I was wanting more from authors I knew and it was really swinging the other way. I say start All The Boxes! I will live vicariously through you. :)

OOH this made me want a box now! I think I'd try the YA one too. And the book you got sounds really interesting to me, sadly yes relevant in today's world. I love that you get a bunch of items with the book and not just the book. So much fun!!
