This book box subscription is exactly what I have been looking for! It is surprisingly hard to find a decent sci-fi/horror subscription box that is not YA focused.
Each box contains two books, one new release and one older release, a custom-designed wearable, an art print, and assorted other goodies. Each box is also based upon a theme. February’s is “Paranoia.” (The March 2017 theme has just been announced: “Lost in the Woods” check it out here).
The featured book is Under a Watchful Eye by Adam Nevill. From the Goodreads description:
Seb Logan is being watched. He just doesn’t know by whom.
When the sudden appearance of a dark figure shatters his idyllic coastal life, he soon realizes that the murky past he thought he’d left behind has far from forgotten him. What’s more unsettling is the strange atmosphere that engulfs him at every sighting, plunging his mind into a terrifying paranoia.
To be a victim without knowing the tormentor. To be despised without knowing the offence caused. To be seen by what nobody else can see. These are the thoughts which plague his every waking moment.
Imprisoned by despair, Seb fears his stalker is not working alone, but rather is involved in a wider conspiracy that threatens everything he has worked for. For there are doors in this world that open into unknown places. Places used by the worst kind of people to achieve their own ends. And once his investigation leads him to stray across the line and into mortal danger, he risks becoming another fatality in a long line of victims . . .
Even the description is anxiety-inducing!
Perhaps my favorite thing in this box was seeing Silence of the Lambs when I took Under a Watchful Eye out of the box. But wait! That gorgeousness was actually a box, and inside I found a copy of Bret Easton Ellis’ American Psycho!
Extra goodies included sunglasses with “Don’t Follow Me” emblazoned on the sides, and a branded case, a beautiful journal with a quote from Phillip K. Dick embossed on the cover, and American Psycho-themed videotape pin, and a bookmark and art print featuring the monsters under your bed.
In all, I’m incredibly happy with this book box! This is my first experience with Nocturnal Readers, and I am thrilled! I can’t wait for the March box!
