I have wanted to try out Nocturnal Readers Box for a while and decided to just go for it this month. These are the things that I got…
The wearable for April is a hat that is inspired by Dark Tower by Stephen King.
The Can Koozie is inspired by John Ajvide Lindqvist’s Let The Right One In.
APEX Magazine. This contains short stories by various authors and I think they all have some sort of creep factor.
Nocturnal Readers Box Bookmark.
The April pin is inspired by Brian Keene’s The Rising series.
This huge gold coin is inspired by Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. I have not read this book yet but the spoiler card said that it’s Mad Sweeney’s coin.
The art print for April was created by Eric Nyquist. It’s inspired by John W. Campbell’s Who Goes There? You can find more of his work on his Instagram @ericbnyquist.
The previously released novel for the month is Slade House by David Mitchell. This is basically a warped haunted house. Every nine years a brother and sister invite you to go inside their house and at first you don’t want to leave, but then when you do, you can’t. I also really love the naked book.
The new release for this month is Unbury Carol by Josh Malerman. This is about a woman who has a condition where she falls into a coma lasting weeks. It appears that she is dead but she always wakes up. The only people who know about it is Carol, her husband and her long lost love. Her husband decides that the next time carol falls into her sleeping coma, he is going to bury her alive and declare her dead so that he can get her fortune.
All the other unboxings I’ve seen, I have loved so much and when I decided to finally try it, I was underwhelmed. This is not Nocturnal Readers Box’s fault, it’s just my personal taste. The hat and koozie are things that I never use but I found other homes for them. I also thought that the art print would be a little creepier, although I still love this months print. I give this box a 5 out of 10. I am really looking forward to reading Unbury Carol though. Because this box is a little pricey I probably won’t get another one unless I can get a good discount code but you should definitely check out their website and see if it’s something you might like.
