Unboxing | August Nerdy Bookworm Box

August Nerdy Bookworm Box

Nerdy Bookworm Box is another Subscription box for book lovers. This one is a monthly box and specialises in sci fi and fantasy YA. The box retails for £28.99 a month with free shipping to the UK. Each box has a different theme and the theme for August was Dystopian, which is definitely a theme I can get excited by!

The box comes with a range of goodies to accompany the book. This month included a plastic mug inspired by The Hunger Games, which if I'm being honest felt a little bit on the cheap side. To go with the mug is another Hunger Games inspired item, the Arrows and Anarchy fandom coffee by Cracked Black Inc. I'm a massive coffee fan and also a fandom fan, so I loved getting this in my box!

There was also two items inspired by Divergent, an I'd Rather Be Divergent keychain and some magnetic bookmarks with the faction logos on them by New Leaf. Once again the keychain felt a bit on the cheap side and I don't think I will get much use out of it, the bookmarks however are lovely and come at a time when I really need them!

And lastly before we move on to the book we have a wax melt inspired by The Maze Runner and is called The Glade. It smells lovely and I can't wait to check out the rest of Owlchemy products.

Unplugged

Now onto the real meat of the box, the book itself! This months book is Unplugged by Donna Freitas and it was beautifully presented in brown wrapping paper with the cutest charms. Here is the blurb:

Humanity is split into a dying physical world for the poor and an extravagant virtual world for the wealthy. Years ago, Skylar Cruz crossed over to the App World for a chance at a better life, and her family stayed behind in the Real World. Now Skye is a virtual teenager, surrounded by glamorous apps and expensive downloads—yet she’s never felt like she fits in, and all she wants is to see her mother and sister again.
Skye is desperate and ready to risk everything to unplug from the App World. But she soon learns that the only person she can trust—in either world, including friends and family—is herself

Personally I'm not all that sold on the book from the blurb, but that is more of a personal thing, I just prefer when things are in the physical world rather than a virtual one, I will definitely still give it a go though!

Overall I really enjoyed this box and think it is lovely, but I don't think I like it enough to subscribe monthly as there are a few items that I didn't enjoy. I think this makes a nice treat to yourself or a gift for another person but for the price I preferred the Illumicrate and that one is quarterly which just suits my lifestyle more.
