Blogtober – LitJoy Crate Unboxing

Welcome back, witches! 🎃✨

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done an unboxing on the blog, so today we’re going to unbox the September Secrets and Shadows LitJoy crate! If you know me, you know both secrets and shadows/anything dark are MY JAM, which means I couldn’t renew my subscription fast enough!

Also, apologies in advance for the crapy picture quality but my camera happened to have a meltdown so I had to take this pictures on my phone 🙃

Here’s the description behind this September’s theme:

This thrilling book takes place in a fantasy world with a protagonist whose magic must be kept a secret. The stakes are high in the face of tyrants and oppressive colonialism. When her Magic is both the key to surviving and the very thing that could end her life, she must choose which lies to live. .


Let’s Unbox!

Next up, we have an illustration of Zelie, from Children of Blood and Bone that is STUNNING! The artist is sooo freaking talented! If you haven’t read this book you need to immediately, it was such an amazing story.

After that we have a set of 6 tea light battery operated candles which I am all about. I have a slight obsession with candles and this will work great for bookstagram props and setting the mood for all the spooky reads happening this month!

Next up, we have a Harry Potter patronus infinity scarf. Ya’ll I DIED when I saw this. Plus the Always and the doe patronus, consider me deceased. I can’t wait to add this to my Fall wardrobe.

While we’re on the subject of Harry Potter, this month’s box also came with a tote bag that features an illustration from The Tale of the Three Brothers. Give me ALL the Harry Potter goodies!

This month’s book is For a Muse of Fire by Heidi Heilig. This book also comes signed, with a letter, AND has the exclusive LitJoy cover with a print on the inside of the dust jacket! I hadn’t heard too much about this book but after reading the synopsis it sounds right up my alley. Plus, the cover of this book is even more beautiful in person!

The Verdict

Until next time,

  1. What a great box that turned out to be, they were really generous on the number of goodies they gave, which is always a good thing. That illustration of Zelie from CoBaB is absolutely stunning and I’m totally in love with the Harry Potter goodies they included in the box. And that’s all before you got to the book!
