Who’s ready for our first theme of 2021?! It is: REBELLIOUS ROYALS! Our January theme is dedicated to those royals who don’t like to follow established conventions or play by the rules.

Our chosen book for January is a debut space opera. With an intergalactic treaty at risk following the death of an imperial prince, his widower is rushed into an arranged marriage with a disreputable prince to try and save negotiations. But was the prince’s death truly an accident? And are the new couple now developing feelings for each other? Part murder mystery, part political intrigue, our favourite element of this novel was the swoon-worthy central romance that is one of the sweetest we have ever read! Our edition comes with exclusive sprayed edges, is signed by the author, and both our full box and book only options come with a matching pin designed by Stacey McEvoy-Caunt!

Our featured fandoms this month are ACOTAR, A Song of Wraiths and Ruin, You Should See Me in a Crown, Mirage, AND we’ll be including an officially licensed Cruel Prince item! We adore this mix of items, they have a distinct cosy winter vibe and are all perfect for dark evenings spent snuggled up at home. Reveals to come!
