Illumicrate Unboxing: August 2021 ‘Dark Academia’

Hey guys! Today I am sharing my unboxing for Illumicrate’s August box and I’ve been so looking forward to this one. It sounds so good and I was so excited to see what changes they’d make. Without further ado, let’s get into it!

The Devil Makes Three by Tori Bovalino: So this is the book for August and it’s a YA standalone horror about a student working in a library who opens an ancient, hidden book and accidentally releases a demon who will do anything to remain freed. This sounds epic and I can’t wait to read it. I love dark academia. This edition stunning too; I really like what they’ve done with it. I definitely prefer this to the original cover and the foil embossing on the hardback is beautiful.

It also has really pretty teal sprayed edges that match the book perfectly and is signed by the author!

There’s embossing on the hardback (same design that’s on the cover) and it’s really pretty. I love what they’ve done with this edition. The endpapers match the design that’s on the front cover and I really like that. It looks so much much better than the plain endpapers. And finally, we have the monthly pin! I’m not too fussed about the pins to be honest, but I really love this one. It’s such a pretty design!

So that’s the August Illumicrate box. What did you think of the book? I love the design and I can’t wait to read it now! I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading!
