Lit-Cube March Box – Time Travel

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure here.

Hello there readers. This month I made the jump and signed up for a book subscription box! After doing some research, I found a newer subscription service called Lit-Cube. They are a surprise and themed subscription with a different theme each month, which means you won’t know the exact contents of your box until you open it (ummm hello Christmas morning!!).

“Lit-Cube is a monthly subscription box for readers. We strive to pair hand-picked books with high quality literary themed products to bring you a magical reading experience each and every month. We mail out a variety of books & genres. We are *not* a YA only box subscription.”

So Lit-Cube is sort-of like other book subscription services where you get a book with some bookish items, but here is what they guarantee will come in your box each month:

  1. At least one Book: “Lit-Cube is a surprise subscription and that means we will not be offering genre-specific boxes at this time. One of the goals of Lit-Cube is to find amazing books by amazing authors and help our subscribers find new reading addictions and new authors to fan-girl/fan-boy over! What we can tell you is that we will be picking books from award winning traditional and indie authors in a variety of genres and themes. We will not be featuring erotica books or books with explicit sexual themes. We scour the book world for the perfect reads and products for our subscribers.”
  2. Something Wearable (you select your Tee Shirt size upon subscription): “Tee shirts will not be in every box, but they will be in a LOT of the boxes. Occasionally, we’ll switch out the tee shirt for another amazing, equally-retail-priced item that we think our subscribers will enjoy. Shirts will always be roomy, unisex/men’s fit tees.”
  3. Something “Snackable”: This comes in a variety of forms, but will always be something good to eat.
  4. 2-3 additional items in your box that match the month’s theme.

What convinced me to choose Lit-Cube? Well let me first start by saying that I almost went with Owl Crate, but that service really is focused on the Young Adult. Not that Young Adult is bad, I enjoy a good YA book as much as the next, but I do like to have a variety and didn’t want to be overwhelmed with one specific category. While Lit-Cube does send in Young Adult themes, they also provide a variety of other options. Plus, looking at past months’ boxes, they looked like they typically sent in items I would enjoy. Check out Lit-Cube’s website for examples of past boxes.

March Unboxing: Time Travel

Alright … here it is. The moment you’ve all been waiting for …. Lit-Cube’s March Box: Time Travel theme.


The Book:

Loop – Karen Akins
“At a school where Quantum Paradox 101 is a required course and history field trips are literal, sixteen year-old time traveler Bree Bennis excels…at screwing up.
After Bree botches a solo midterm to the 21st century by accidentally taking a boy hostage (a teensy snafu), she stands to lose her scholarship. But when Bree sneaks back to talk the kid into keeping his yap shut, she doesn’t go back far enough. The boy, Finn, now three years older and hot as a solar flare, is convinced he’s in love with Bree, or rather, a future version of her that doesn’t think he’s a complete pain in the arse. To make matters worse, she inadvertently transports him back to the 23rd century with her.
Once home, Bree discovers that a recent rash of accidents at her school are anything but accidental. Someone is attacking time travelers. As Bree and her temporal tagalong uncover seemingly unconnected clues―a broken bracelet, a missing data file, the art heist of the millennium―that lead to the person responsible, she alone has the knowledge to piece the puzzle together. Knowledge only one other person has. Her future self.
But when those closest to her become the next victims, Bree realizes the attacker is willing to do anything to stop her. In the past, present, or future.” – Amazon

The Wearable:

Dr. Who Quote Tee

“I am and always will be the optimist, the hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams.”

I actually don’t know where you can buy this Tee Shirt. I am inclined to believe that Lit-Cube purchases blank tees and places the designs on them (but it’s awesome and unique so I don’t mind!).

The Snackable:

That’s It Fruit Bar

Different flavors came in each box (based on other unboxing photos I’ve seen), but my box came with the Apple and Strawberry flavor. It was actually pretty tasty!

  • Only 2 ingredients: apples and strawberries
  • Non-GMO
  • Kosher and vegan friendly

You can purchase it here.

The Other Items:

Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Candle – by Frostbeard Studio

“This nerdy candle is a completely original scent! The scent is sweeter than most, slightly masculine and quite pleasant. An excellent gift for any Whovian!”

You can purchase it here.

Pocket Travel Journal

“This fantastic retro style travel journal is perfect for you to write down all your agendas, notes and observations. With space to record your daily adventures, this beautifully illustrated edition includes travel quotes to inspire and ignite your curiosity!”

You can purchase it here.


Hermonie Time Turner

“I mark the hours, every one, Nor have I yet outrun the sun. My use and value, unto you, Are gauged by what you have to do”

You can purchase it here.



Overall I was very impressed with this box. There were several unique items included that I’ve been wanting so I’m thrilled that Lit-Cube is the service I’ve chosen.
