Alright, lovelies… since I’m officially back in action, it is now time for my severely belated unboxing of LitCube’s August box.
With a theme like: “I’d Rather Be a Mermaid”, I obviously couldn’t resist.
The box cost $34.95 USD + shipping, and they ship worldwide.
The part that sets LitCube apart from a lot of other boxes is that every box contains something readable, something wearable, and something snackable.
Of course, the definition covers a broad aspect of items, so even though that’s a set recipe for each box, you can still be plenty surprised.
Is it just me, or has that mermaid kinda lost her head? 🤔
A mermaid Lipbalm from Lippincottsoapco on etsy. Apparently it’s inspired from a Snow Cone, but since we don’t have that here, I can’t vouch for that success.
Lemonade Drink Packets from Everly. Simply mix them with water, and enjoy a chilled drink while relaxing with a good book.
The Lemonade is all natural, sugar free and has zero calories in them.
I haven’t had the chance to taste it yet, but they look and smell delicious.
Lit-Cube exclusive beach towel/throw blankie.
I must be a mermaid.
I have no fear of the depths, and a great fear of shallow living.
It’s also super soft.
LitCube exclusive Mermaid travel cup.
Formed like a can, it will fit most places while effectively keeping bugs out of your drink.
An Updrift Coaster.
Mer-Charmer by Amy Bearce.
While this is technically a sequel, it can be read as a Standalone, although LitCube also provided an ebook of the first book.

Verdict: I have a lot of love for this box. Not only did it contain two books, but they also had a ton of useful goodies, as well.
The towel and the cup is perfect for summer, but unfortunately this box got stuck in customs, so I was halfway into September before the box arrived at my door. And since I didn’t have my phone, I couldn’t unbox and use the items until now.
And, honestly? The weather now isn’t the best for outside reading.
Despite being super impressed by this box, I don’t think I’ll subscribe to this. I can see myself coming back if I see a theme that I can’t live without, but otherwise customs simply ruin the fun for me.
I highly suggest US residents and people outside EU to try this box.
