The Neverland Wars by Audrey Greathouse – Retail Value $10.95 (On Amazon for $7.02)

Book Summary from Amazon:

Magic can do a lot―give you flight, show you mermaids, help you taste the stars, and… solve the budget crisis? That’s what the grown-ups will do with it if they ever make it to Neverland to steal its magic and bring their children home.

However, Gwen doesn’t know this. She’s just a sixteen-year-old girl with a place on the debate team and a powerful crush on Jay, the soon-to-be homecoming king. She doesn’t know her little sister could actually run away with Peter Pan, or that she might have to chase after her to bring her home safe. Gwen will find out though―and when she does, she’ll discover she’s in the middle of a looming war between Neverland and reality.

She’ll be out of place as a teenager in Neverland, but she won’t be the only one. Peter Pan’s constant treks back to the mainland have slowly aged him into adolescence as well. Soon, Gwen will have to decide whether she’s going to join impish, playful Peter in his fight for eternal youth… or if she’s going to scramble back to reality in time for the homecoming dance.

And this book also came with a signed bookplate sticker:

Peter Pan Quote Tote Bag – Retail Value $19.95

This is an exclusive tote bag design, and it is a really well-made tote bag. I love that it has a zipper closure too!

lit-cube-july-2016-keychain

Tinker Bell Inspired Keychain – Retail Value Listed $9.95

Lit-Cube is so good at themed boxes! I already have the perfect person in mind to give this Tinker Bell keychain to!

lit-cube-july-2016-ring

Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust Ring – Value $14.95

This is an exclusive design for Lit-Cube! While silver isn’t usually my jewelry metal of choice, this is such a cute and unique piece. (I love the pixie dust words hidden inside the band!)

Here it is on:

It is somewhat adjustable, but the metal didn’t have much give.

lit-cube-july-2016-poptart

Megpies Raspberry All Natural Handmade Tart – Value $3.95

My husband Eric was really excited to try this, but unfortunately, with the heatwave we’ve been having, it didn’t look too good by the time it got to us. Since this didn’t have an expiration date one it, I thought it was safer to trash it.

(I think I will buy him more, though – all natural poptarts sound pretty amazing!)

lit-cube-july-2016-sunglasses-2

Lit-Cube Sunglasses – Value $5?

These weren’t listed on the card, so I’m guessing they are a bonus item.

These aren’t my style when it comes to sunglasses, so these will be a backup pair in the glove compartment of the car!

lit-cube-july-2016-never

Never Grow Up Card – Retail Value $7.95

This is a flat card and it really would make a lovely print to frame. I love the watercolor background!

 

Verdict: This box has a value of about $70. I think that is great for a $30 + shipping book box. Lit-Cube is really the best when it comes to themes – and they do a lot of exclusive items just for subscribers, too.

What do you think of the July LitCube box?

  1. Ah! I just put the quote from the tote bag up in my classroom. I may have to check the book out – sounds cute!

  2. LitCube has definitely quickly become my favorite sub box. It just matches my personal preferences more. Most of the time with the bookish box I only like the shirt or the shirt and like one item or so. And with Owlcrate I tend to only like one or a few items most of the time too. With the two boxes i’ve gotten so far with Litcube I’ve liked basically the entire box and only put up MAYBE one item just because it’s not something I’d personally use. I love the keychain and the ring from this box. And I don’t generally like tote bags just because I now have like a dozen of them and don’t like open space bags but this one was really well made and the zip closure is nice. And yes – the glasses were a free gift due to the previous month’s box shipping late.

  3. I believe you mean Neverland, not Everland. 🙂

    • Oops! Thank you! Fixed! 🙂

  4. As a Disney fan, I love that ring.

    • Agree. Love it. Great box altogether as well!

  5. FYI, many Starbucks now sell Megpies in store 🙂

  6. I just love LitCube 🙂 They are the best book box out there and every month always out-does the one before it
