despite the delay and the march world’s collide box coming a little later than scheduled it arrived on 6th april so only a little bit behind schedule. completely understandable with everything going on! i’d actually forgot the theme for this box because i’d been reading more about the april theme but still my box is here, i’m happy and i have a new book and a readalong to join in with. sadly one of the items has been delayed and aims to be sent in the april box later in the month. the previous box was themed ‘sparks fly’.
the worlds collide march box from illumicrate included
burning crowns mug designed by @rosiethorns88 featuring aelin and rowan from the throne of glass series. i love this mug, it’s stunning and the artwork is so good!
shrestha candle by amelia’s kitchen candles inspired by strange the dreamer
city of brass foiled print artwork by slaymate on tumblr
drink me keychain designed by @itsbabypears and inspired by alice in wonderland
his dark materials neckalce designed by @hannahhitchmanart and featuring pantalaimon and lee scoresby’s balloon. this is the item that has been delayed.
collectible coin featuring a faerie king and his queen – but the one i have just seems to feature jude duarte – which is fine it’s a lovely coin.
the book of the month is havenfall by sara holland and i was thrilled to receive this exclusive book with signed bookplate, ribbon bookmark and blue sprayed edges. i saw so many people reading this arc and it looked and sounded so good. i enjoyed some of sara hollands previous books too, everless being one of them, so i’m looking forward to reading this book. here’s the blurb:
“hidden deep in the mountains of colorado lies the inn at havenfall, a sanctuary that connects anciety wolrds, each with their own magic, together. for generations, the inn has protected all who seek regude within its walls, and any who disrupt the peace can never retgurn. for maddie morrow, summers at the inn are more than a chance to experience this magic first-hand. havenfall is an escape from reality and it’s where one day she hopes to inherit the role of innkeeper from her beloved uncle. but this summer, the impossible happens: a dead body is found, shattering everything the inn stands for. with her uncle gravely injured, and a dangerous creature on the loose, maddie suddenly finds herself responsible for the safety of everyone in havenfall…and she’ll do anything to uncover the truth.”
i think the best thing in the box is the mug for me. i love the design and i’m a huge fan of the throne of glass series. the artwork is great but i will have to switch out some of my older mugs to make space but it’s totally worth it. i love the collectible coins too although i don’t have very many. they’re magnetic so can be kept on the fridge for safe keeping. i also really love the little key chain. alice in wonderland was a big favourite of mine growing up so it’s lovely to have a bit of a keepsake like this.
the theme for april is squad goals which sounds really cool and i can’t wait to see what will be included in the next box. fandoms include squads from the witchlands, aurora rising, lord of the rings, gilded wolves and more. i love the witchlands and lord of the rings, i’m yet to read the other books but i’m sure the merch will encourage and inspire me to learn more about these series!
