May’s theme was “Game of Thrones”!

As a huge fan of Game of Thrones, I couldn’t wait to receive this box!  Game of Thrones is life.

Enchanted Book Box comes in an adorable white box with the logo on the top!  I love how ethereal the box design is.  It goes well with the concept of the box!

Upon opening the box, the first thing that you see is a Game of Thrones style letter with a wax seal!  The wax seal has the Stark House Sigil imprinted into it. I love this little detail!

 

Here is a closer look at the gorgeous wax seal!

The letter itself lists everything included in the box.  This is such a unique way to design the content card for this box!  I love how the owner of the box kept with the Game of Thrones theme through even the smallest details.  The quote at the beginning of the letter is one of my favorites and something I live by.

The quote says:

“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not.  Make it your strength.  Then it can never be your weakness.  Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”

The first item on the list is the chosen book of the month!  This month’s book choice is Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts.

Here is the synopsis:

Being a bastard blows. Tilla would know. Her father, Lord Kent of the Western Province, loved her as a child, but cast her aside as soon as he had trueborn children.
At sixteen, Tilla spends her days exploring long-forgotten tunnels beneath the castle with her stablehand half brother, Jax, and her nights drinking with the servants, passing out on Jax’s floor while her castle bedroom collects dust. Tilla secretly longs to sit by her father’s side, enjoying feasts with the rest of the family. Instead, she sits with the other bastards, like Miles of House Hampstedt, an awkward scholar who’s been in love with Tilla since they were children.
Then, at a feast honoring the visiting princess Lyriana, the royal shocks everyone by choosing to sit at the Bastards’ Table. Before she knows it, Tilla is leading the sheltered princess on a late-night escapade. Along with Jax, Miles, and fellow bastard Zell, a Zitochi warrior from the north, they stumble upon a crime they were never meant to witness.
Rebellion is brewing in the west, and a brutal coup leaves Lyriana’s uncle, the Royal Archmagus, dead–with Lyriana next on the list. The group flees for their lives, relentlessly pursued by murderous mercenaries; their own parents have put a price on their heads to prevent the king and his powerful Royal Mages from discovering their treachery.
The bastards band together, realizing they alone have the power to prevent a civil war that will tear their kingdom apart-if they can warn the king in time. And if they can survive the journey . . .
Based on the synopsis, I think that this is a great book to pair with the Game of Thrones box!  I am very excited to read it.
The next item is a Mother of Dragons bookmark from Jessicascissorhands on Etsy!  This bookmark is beautiful and I love the watercolor design of it.  It is based on my favorite Game of Thrones character, Daenerys, and I will be putting it to great use!
The next item is this Game of Thrones tea from LoSkeeverAmmiccante!  I am obsessed with tea, so I was so excited to receive this tea in the box.  It smells delicious!
The next item is this Sansa’s Lemon Cakes Lip Balm by NerdieNifties!  This lip balm is extremely moisturizing, and I love how it smells like lemon meringue pie.  It also has such a neat connection to Game of Thrones!
  
The next item is this King’s Landing candle by Flickering Tales Candles!  The candle smells spicy with a hint of the ocean, and I love it.  It sets the perfect scene for Game of Thrones!
The next item is my favorite item in the box!  It is an authentic Quellon Greyjoy Half-Penny from Shire Post Mint.  This coin looks like it came right out of Game of Thrones, and I love the description that goes with it.  It really makes the story come to life!
The next item is a Collector Card from Mystic Moon Media!  I received Daenerys, my favorite character, so I was very excited.  The artwork is beautiful, and I have already put it on my bookshelf!
The next item is a Game of Thrones Coloring Book by Sweetgeek on Etsy!  This coloring book is compact, and I love how it highlights different characters from the series.
 
Here is an example of Jon Snow from the coloring book!  I love the quote that is on his page.
The next item is this pin from Geektastic Creations!  The pin reads “that’s what I do.  I drink and I know things”.  This quote is reminiscent of Tyrion Lannister, one of my other favorite characters, so I was so happy to see that he was included!
The last item is this “Dracarys” bookmark from Paperback Paramour!  The term “Dracarys” is what Daenerys uses to encourage her dragons to breathe fire.
Here is the back of the bookmark!  I think that the artwork is beautiful.
Final Thought: Enchanted Book Box is fantastic!  Even though it is more expensive than other book boxes, it comes with so much more.  They really put a lot of effort into making this Game of Thrones box magical, and I adore everything that was included.  This is one of the best YA boxes that I have tried, and I highly recommend it!  The passion that goes into the box really shows.  Go ahead and give Enchanted Book Box a try!  You won’t be disappointed.
