LitCube Book Subscription Box Review – August 2015 Spelled

Spelled by Betsy Schow – Retail Value $9.99 (On Amazon for $9.18)

Book Summary from Amazon:

Fairy Tale Survival Rule #32: If you find yourself at the mercy of a wicked witch, sing a romantic ballad and wait for your Prince Charming to save the day.

Yeah, no thanks. Dorthea is completely princed out. Sure being the crown princess of Emerald has its perks―like Glenda Original ball gowns and Hans Christian Louboutin heels. But a forced marriage to the not-so-charming prince Kato is so not what Dorthea had in mind for her enchanted future.

Talk about unhappily ever after.

Trying to fix her prince problem by wishing on a (cursed) star royally backfires, leaving the kingdom in chaos and her parents stuck in some place called “Kansas.” Now it’s up to Dorthea and her pixed off prince to find the mysterious Wizard of Oz and undo the curse…before it releases the wickedest witch of all and spells The End for the world of Story.

  1. This is my second box and I delighted in the mermaid items from last month and am just finishing book two (and loving both). The “Home Sweet Oz” box did not disappoint! I have a great book to look forward to reading (and didn’t Dorothy spend every moment looking forward to something in the movie?) with the most novel bookmark imaginable. The origami necklace is precious. Of all my subscription boxes, Lit Cube has become the one I most look forward to getting each month. I only wish I could go back in time and get the boxes I missed.

  2. Thanks so much for the wonderful review! ❤

  3. There are a few other review magazines out there. My favorite is Bookmarks.

  4. This Sub is not for my interests but what a smart, eclectic, well managed collection! The company sure has a talent for bringing items together in a cohesive box and giving the subscriber a treat.

    • I may just print out your comment and look at it each month when self doubt begins to creep in! Thank you! ❤

  5. I love the curation but am not a Wizard of Oz fan. I’m hoping to swap this. It definitely needs a better home! I hated to cancel and then re-subscribe. LOVE the necklace and lollipop idea.

    • I would love to buy the box from you.

  6. This is my second box. Love it. My necklace says yellow brick road.

  7. I am signed up for this subscription and love it! This was my third month. Great box!

  8. I NEED that bookmark in my life!

  9. I’m not a big enough fan of The Wizard of Oz or any of the other books, so I skipped this box. I LOVE that bookmark though!! I only know about the magazine because of the book convention that takes place yearly, that RT Reviews is a part of, so I’ve scanned one or two of them online and they are chalk full of exciting and new books and reviews. So much to take in Lol!

  10. That looks like an awesome box! I love the Wizard of Oz, but I’ve never read the books or the Wicked books.
