The Book Box Club is one of the best mystery boxes for book lovers you can find! Let’s do a late unboxing of November’s Secret Societies box. I’m bringing you this fairly late, as I use a third-party service to get my deliveries from the UK. They took their sweet time, and then it was the holidays and I was busy writing.
But it’s time to set the record straight and do this. I was really hoping to bring you more unboxings since the first one I did for the April theme, but it was a challenging year, and I missed a couple of months. That being said, I hope things will change and improve. Let’s start with the Secret Societies box from November of 2020.
Book Box Club Theme: Secret Societies
I’ve been cutting down on ordering book boxes for a while now, and I’d usually skip a theme like that. Don’t ask why, let’s just say I have to prioritize. For one reason or another, I forgot to skip, so here I am with the box in hand, and I’m glad I forgot to skip. Honestly! Let’s not forget… I forgot to skip the previous box I unboxed for you. It must be my destiny! But without further ado, let’s see what Book Box Club’s Secret Societies brought me!
- A Book Pouch – illustrated by OS.Illustrations, it corresponds to the month’s book and it fits perfectly inside!
- Belgian Chocolate Key – made by Maple Molly’s. I’m not a fan of chocolate, but it’s pretty, and my mom will be happy to have it!
- The Starless Sea Coaster – with a gorgeous illustration by Pin and Ink. I recently shared on my Instagram that the book is on my 2021 TBR list, and that coaster seems to be right on time!
- The Secret History Patch – with a cute illustratin by The Goddess Revolution. I can’t say I’m much into patches, but it’s cute, and I’m really into pink!
- An Unashamedly Bookish Notebook – by the ladies at the Book Box Club, and you know I’m addicted to notebooks.

The Secret Societies Book
That would be The Magpie Society by Zoe Sugg and My McCulloch. The book was released by Penguin Books at the end of October, 2020. To be completely honest, that’s not the type of book I’d pick up. Boarding schools are not my cup of soup, but it seems to be an easy enough read, and I need something to push me into reading mode for 2021. After missing my goal for 2020 with about 15 books, I really need the fuel to read more this year. Not because I have to, but because I want to read more.
The story doesn’t seem to waste any time. We have a murder, a mystery, and a boarding school to explore. As you can see from my reviews, it’s clear I’m a very narrow-genre reader. I expect The Magpie Society to be something new and refreshing. Drop a comment down below to tell me if you’ve read and you thought of it!
Did You Get The Secret Societies Box?
As of writing this unboxing, there are still boxes left in the girls’ shop. You can check out the box or browse through the goodies and just get them. My most favorite items of this box were the book pouch which has a matching art for the book, and that’s just adorable, and the notebook. I’m now looking forward to finally getting my hands on the December box. If I’m to judge from the spoiler photos, it’s great, as well!
