*just a quick note to say that I know I’ve been inactive for a while. We have had a lot of drama but it’s slowly getting better. I do have a backlog of old sub box reviews to post but they’re on my laptop and I can’t easily get my laptop to Wifi right now. So, those old reviews will be up eventually but for now I’m posting new reviews from my iPad and/or phone. Which I’m still figuring out the kinks of. So, bare with me as I figure it out please.*
Half Blood Prints Subscription
This is a brand new subscription from the fandom print shop that designs the boxes and magnets for the Fandom of the Month subscription box. February was the first month and I signed up as soon as I saw the announcement on the Half Blood Prints Instagram.
The items came in a plastic mailer and on the inside was a cardboard mailer and an extra piece of cardboard inside to help hold structure. My postman bent mine to make it fit in the mailbox but the items inside were fine. No, doubt thanks to the great packaging.
The first months theme was Harry Potter, of course. They lean toward a Snape theme but it isn’t all Snape.
The main print is of Snape. It’s black and white with a photo of Snape, an excerpt from the book and the large caption “The Bravest Man I Ever Knew”. All of which hopefully shows up on the photo *. I am not a huge Harry Potter fan but I do really like this print.
The stickers says “Until the very end” and is small but not tiny. It’s a good size for a notebook collage or a laptop or an iPad or Kindle case. I’m not sure yet what I will do with mine. I’m considering adding it to my sticker covered trunk that I have had for over ten years and always add new stickers to when I come across ones that I like.
The magnet received in February is a calendar magnet for March. Each month’s magnet will be for the following month. This one has a very good motivational quote from Hagrid on it. My husband and I have had a rough last few months (which is why I got so behind posting on this blog) and this quote is a good one for us. It’s going on our fridge and after March I will cut the calendar portion off and keep the quote up.
The last item is Marauder’s Map bookmark. I admit I am a page folder with my own books but I use bookmarks in library and borrowed books.
This isn’t a surprise box. The items are posted on Instagram before they’re sent and this months’ theme and items are already up if you want to check them out. Just look for halfbloodprints on Instagram. I don’t want to post it here just in case some of you want to be surprised.
