Book & a Brew Unboxing! [October 2016]

Hello lovelies,

Today I'm here to share with you the contents of my October Book & a Brew box!

I was really excited for my October subscription boxes, particularly my bookish one. As Book & a Brew were doing a separate Halloween box, I wasn't sure if the main box would also be a spooky one so I was looking forward to seeing with what they went with!

As I've mentioned in my past Book & a Brew unboxing posts, Book & a Brew are a monthly subscription box service which sends you a hardback book and a cosy, fancy tea for the grand total of £12.99. I think £12.99 is a great price point when most subscription boxes are £20+. Also, these boxes are perfect for those who prefer to keep their subscription boxes simple, it's a book and a tea and nothing more - exactly what it says on the tin (or box!).

 As before, I pay for these boxes myself, I just think it's a brilliant service!

So let's see what arrived this month!

Rawblood is a gothic novel that tells the story of the Villarca curse, set in a lonely mansion on Dartmoor. Iris and her father are the last of the Villarca line and in hiding, until Iris falls in love...

Yay, a spooky one!

I was really pleased that yet again this was an undiscovered book for me. I'll be honest I'm not really into gothic tales, in fact I don't think I've even read any. I didn't read too much into the synopsis because I think this is a book that I will benefit from going in without too much information, but I'm definitely intrigued by the little I do know - just check out that quote on the cover!

 Yet again the "blood orange" tea fits perfectly with the creepy horror vibes this book is giving off. I haven't tried this one but it smells delicious and I'm a huge fan of citrus teas. I'm also a huge fan of this little frog dude on the packaging.

I know I say this every time but I really admire the thought that clearly goes into these boxes, it's simple yet oh so effective. It was also totally cute that some Halloween confetti was included in the wrapping!

I would highly recommend this subscription box for you or a loved one, and in fact as it's coming up to Christmas I thought it would be good to point off that you can get a one-off Book & a Brew box for £14.99. As a bookish person I would be absolutely delighted to receive this as a gift, it's basically a cosy evening in a box!

I know the next box is November, but I can't tell you how excited I am for the December box! I'm hoping for some Christmassy goodies!

Have you tried Book & a Brew? What do you think? Let me know below (Also, let me know if you've read Rawblood, I'd love to hear your thoughts!)
