The Bookish Box YA & Adult Book Only Box Subscription
There’s nothing we love more than love itself in our favorite stories. But what happens when that love was never meant to be? That’s when you get one of your favorite tropes, star-crossed lovers! The Bookish Box is thrilled to announce our October YA theme, Star-Crossed Stories! This month features some of the best, the most bittersweet, and the downright tragic love stories in YA fiction.
This book of the month is Lightlark by Alex Aster!
LIGHT LARK SYNOPSIS:
Welcome to the Centennial.
Every 100 years, the island of Lightlark appears to host the Centennial, a deadly game that only the rulers of six realms are invited to play. The Centennial offers the six rulers one final chance to break the curses that have plagued their realms for centuries. Each ruler has something to hide. Each realm’s curse is uniquely wicked.
Isla Crown is the young ruler of Wildling—a realm of temptresses cursed to kill anyone they fall in love with. They are feared and despised, and are counting on Isla to end their suffering by succeeding at the Centennial.
To survive, Isla must lie, cheat, and betray…even as love complicates everything.

This book of the month is A Dowry of Blood by S.T. Gibson!
A lyrical and dreamy reimagining of Dracula’s brides, A DOWRY OF BLOOD is a story of desire, obsession, and emancipation.
Saved from the brink of death by a mysterious stranger, Constanta is transformed from a medieval peasant into a bride fit for an undying king. But when Dracula draws a cunning aristocrat and a starving artist into his web of passion and deceit, Constanta realizes that her beloved is capable of terrible things. Finding comfort in the arms of her rival consorts, she begins to unravel their husband’s dark secrets.
With the lives of everyone she loves on the line, Constanta will have to choose between her own freedom and her love for her husband. But bonds forged by blood can only be broken by death.
