Each box comes with an info card detailing the items included. This month’s theme is “Anniversary of the Dragon.”



Slayers by C.J. Hill – Value $10

Book Summary from Amazon:

Dragons exist. They’re ferocious. And, in this novel from C. J. Hill, they’re smart: before they were killed off by slayer-knights, they rendered a select group of eggs dormant so their offspring would survive. Only a handful of people know about this, let alone believe it―these “Slayers” are descended from the original knights and are now a diverse group of teens that includes Tori, a smart but spoiled senator’s daughter who didn’t sign up to save the world.

The dragon eggs have fallen into the wrong hands. The Slayers must work together to stop the eggs from hatching. They will fight; they will fall in love. But will they survive?

This gets great reviews and is book one of a three book series. (The first two books are already released.)


LitCube Dragon – Value $12

This is an exclusive plush of the LitCube mascot Stacks! He even has a little LitCube tag:




Dragon Bracelet – Value $9

I received a similar bracelet in this month’s OwlCrate, and I think I like this one better. Here it is on:


Seems very appropriate for watching Game of Thrones!



Color This Journal – Value $10

This journal is a mix of lined and coloring pages:



And LitCube included an adorable colored pencil set too:


Colored Pencil Set – Value $7

I love that the cap has a built-in sharpener – smart!


Fatman’s Beef Jerky – Value $3

For a second, I was a little surprised to see jerky in a book box, but my husband Eric was happy to take it off my hands!

Verdict: I think the curation and theme for this box are excellent. In my opinion, LitCube really is the master of the theme as far as book boxes go!

What do you think of the April LitCube box? Have you read Slayers?

  1. This is an adorable box collab. Great company with a wonderful owner, Peggy.

  2. I got the smoky chipotle flavor of the jerky in my box and it was delicious! And the dragon is currently sitting on top of a stack of books on my bedside table, LOL. 🙂

  3. Colour* ?, not Color

  4. Do they allow you to pick a genre or book preferences or does everyone get the same thing? Because this book is not for me but I like the idea of LitCube.

    • @Melissa B, everyone gets the same thing. I’ve definitely picked up some books this way that I wouldn’t have normally!

  5. Those style bracelets are available in about a million configurations on Amazon from Asian sellers for about a buck shipped.

    • I know this cause I have quite a few of them =D

    • Lol they’re also on eBay for roughly $1 or two…whenever I see they reviewed it makes me shy away from the boxes they’re included in. I doubt the quality is that different.

    • Yeah, Owl Crate and Bookish Box include junk like this, too. I’ve been trying to decide on a book subscription box for months, and Lit Cube’s extras have so far all looked cheap and tacky, as if they only source from China.
