The Best Damn Book Box recently put out a special Through The Looking Glass Box and I had to purchase it.  This box was a one time purchase and wasn't part of the subscription.

The Best Damn Book Box-Through The Looking Glass

This box also came with an information card detailing all the items inside but I forgot to take a photo of it.

Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes (hardcover)

I've heard a little about his book and I can't wait to read it.

Retail Value:  $17.99

Goodreads Rating:  3.66 stars

Goodreads Synopsis:

As Princess of Wonderland Palace and the future Queen of Hearts, Dinah’s days are an endless monotony of tea, tarts, and a stream of vicious humiliations at the hands of her father, the King of Hearts. The only highlight of her days is visiting Wardley, her childhood best friend, the future Knave of Hearts — and the love of her life.
When an enchanting stranger arrives at the Palace, Dinah watches as everything she’s ever wanted threatens to crumble. As her coronation date approaches, a series of suspicious and bloody events suggests that something sinister stirs in the whimsical halls of Wonderland. It’s up to Dinah to unravel the mysteries that lurk both inside and under the Palace before she loses her own head to a clever and faceless foe.
Part epic fantasy, part twisted fairy tale, this dazzling saga will have readers shivering as Dinahs furious nature sweeps Wonderland up in the maelstrom of her wrath. 
Familiar characters such as Cheshire, the White Rabbit, and the Mad Hatter make their appearance, enchanting readers with this new, dark take on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Wonderland Coloring Book by Amily Shen

I love adult coloring books and I had this one on my Amazon wish list.  There were also some crayons included in the box.

Retail Value:  $14.99

There are some cute pictures to color in this book!

Alice Through The Looking Glass Sticker Book

This sticker book looks cute but I haven't used stickers in forever.

Retail Value:  $6.99

Some of the stickers in the book.

Alice Themed Bookmark by Marquis du Soleil &
Key Charm by The Best Damn Craft Shop

I love this beautiful watercolor Alice in Wonderland bookmark and the key charm is pretty cool, too.

Retail Value for bookmark:  $3.85
Retail Value for key charm:  $7

Alice in Wonderland Coloring Pages

I think these coloring pages were a bonus.  You can color these pages and then frame them to put on your wall.

Alice in Wonderland Ornament from PigseyArt

I love these hand crafted ornaments!  I think I was only supposed to get one ornament but I somehow got two.  That's okay with me!  :)

Retail Value for Ornament:  $6

My Thoughts:  I loved this Through The Looking Glass Box.  I can't wait to start reading Queen of Hearts and start coloring in the Wonderland coloring book.  I love those ornaments and that watercolor bookmark.  This is a good subscription box but lately the shipments have been really late.  I still haven't received my June box but I haven't complained since the owner recently had a death in the family.  I hope future boxes ship out earlier but I will most likely have to cancel this subscription since I'm cutting back on boxes.  My property taxes just increased (by a lot!) so I definitely have to start unsubscribing to some boxes.
