June 2021 Illumicrate Unboxing

Here we go!

June’s Theme: ‘Out of the Woods’

So this box has been my favorite box this year, every item just had me totally in love. We’ll begin with this bookmark, inspired by Among the Beasts and Briars, now, I’ve already received my replacement as one of the tiny tines was missing but it’s stunning! (I have no idea where my photo of the new one went, it’s disappeared) I love the quote and the colors, everything about it lol.

The Darkest Part of the Forest is definitely on my TBR as a staunch Holly Black lover, and I love this banner, it’s unique and so pretty! I already have it hanging up!

I was very impressed with the quality of this item. It’s gorgeous too, of course. This has one of the few favorite Robert Frost poems, ‘Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.’ This is the quote from it:

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.

Inspired by We Hunt the Flame this beautiful wooden pin totally had me squeal. It’s my second wooden pin but I think they’re just the prettiest!

I loved the first of these puzzles and uh, given my love of LOTR, this, this was like my fangirl dream. I haven’t done it yet, but, I LOVE it SO MUCH. It’s with my Tolkien books, movies, and my lovely FL LOTR book ends 🙂


Here we go, the monthly pin! Now, let’s get to the book

The Wolf and the Woodsman was this month’s book and I loved it, I joined the readalong, it was super atmospheric and a standalone which my bank account appreciated the lack of investing in a sequel. I know it wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea but I did love it, keep an eye out for my review in the next week or two! The stenciling, foiling, reverse art, ugh, all so perfect and I like the color changes on the cover ❤

There we have it! The June Illumicrate box! Did you get this box? What did you think either way? Any items you liked or hated?
