The Nocturnal Reader’s Box theme for July is “The Feast.” Time to get your gross on! I was excited when I found out the theme for this month.
Each month’s box contains a bookmark and this month it looks yummy.
The Nocturnal Reader’s Box also includes a list of all items included in the box with some information about the items. I enjoy all types of books but since I don’t have a lot of knowledge of this genre I appreciate the references. The flip side of this card shows next month’s theme but I’ll save that until later.
Come to Dust by Bracken Macleod –Value $17.93
This is the new release for the month. I’m looking forward to reading this book- it will come with me camping this week! One in four of the books sent out was signed but sadly, the odds were against me.
Here’s the book summary from Amazon:
Ever since her mother abandoned her, five-year-old Sophie has had to depend on her uncle Mitch for everything. Though their life is difficult, he works hard to keep their family together, despite the obstacles in their way. But just when everything seems to be looking up for them, it all comes crashing down when Sophie dies tragically. Mitch descends into a crippling grief, not knowing how to continue on without her.
When scores of children around the world begin to inexplicably rise from the dead--Sophie among them--everything becomes much harder.
Mitch rescues her from the morgue, determined to carve out a normal life for them no matter what, though it soon becomes clear that may not be possible. While the kids who've returned behave like living children, they still look very dead. And they can do something else that normal children cannot. Something terrifying. While debate rages over whether the children's return is a mercy or a sign of approaching judgment, a congregation of religious fanatics determined to usher in the apocalypse has its own plan for salvation.
Now Mitch must find a way to save Sophie from an increasingly hostile world that wants to tear them apart and put her back in the ground for good.
Bleed by Ed Kurtz –Value $17.91
This is the previous release for the month. The reviews on Amazon say it’s really gory. I’ve been reading this one during the day. The card says one in four of these books were signed too. I was unlucky twice.
Here’s the book summary from Amazon:
When Walt Blackmore moves into an old gable front house on the outskirts of a small town, things are really looking up for him; he has an adoring girlfriend to whom he plans to propose, a new job teaching English at the local high school, and an altogether bright future. His outlook and destiny are irreparably changed, however, when an unusual dark red spot appears on the ceiling in the hallway. Bit by bit, the spot grows, first into a dripping blood stain and eventually into a grotesque, muttering creature.
As the creature grows, Walt finds himself more and more interested in fostering its well-being. At first he only feeds it stray animals so that the blood-hungry monster can survive, but this soon fails to satisfy the creature’s ghastly needs. It is gradually becoming human again, and for that to happen it requires human blood and human flesh. And once Walt has crossed the line from curiosity to murder, there is no going back.
NOS4A2 Bike License Plate – Value $5.00?
The Silence of the Lambs Mini Stemless Wine Glass (minus the Chianti) – Value $8.00?
This glass is so fun! I can’t wait to give it to my brother-in-law who is a huge fan of The Silence of the Lambs.
The Troop-inspired Pin – Value $3.00?
I haven’t read The Troop but I’m guessing this box will give me lots of ideas for future reading!
Jaws-inspired Keychain/Bottle Opener – Value $5.00?
Of course, I know the book Jaws! I love that the keychain is a bottle opener too.
Apron – Value $5.00?
The card reads, “An apron for all your cooking needs, just heed the Warning…” I don’t know what the reference is here. Do any of you know?
“The Night of the Vampire” Art Print by Michael Broom – Value $15.99?
I really have no idea how much this commissioned art might cost so give this value some leeway. The art is good but not necessary something I could display in front of my very scaredy cat 7-year-old.
AUGUST SPOILER ALERT:
For those of you who enjoy a sneak peak, the theme for August is “Infested & Infected”.
Verdict: The Nocturnal Reader’s Box is really great box for lovers of horror, sci-fi, fantasy and psychological thrillers. I lean more toward sci-fi and psychological thrillers but I’m glad to expand my horizons with this box. A true devotee of these genres would probably get most of the references that I did not but that didn’t keep me from enjoying everything. I will read both of the books and use the license plate, bookmark and the keychain/bottle opener.
As for the value, my guess is about $78 worth of products for $35.00 (plus $8.00 shipping) which is great for a box of this kind!
