I’ve subscribed to a few subscription boxes over the past year because of my curiosity. Most of them are book related because I have no willpower.
January has been all sickness for this family. One after another we’re getting coughs, fevers, aches, sore throats, etc, resulting in cancelled dance lessons, sick days, and doctors appointments. Since I need to be slightly present on my own blog despite not being able to sit upright without vertigo, I’m going to share what arrived in the mail for me today…an Owlcrate! I seem to get mine later than most people, so I doubt this is truly spoiling anything, but, I’m warning those few anyway…the picture of contents is directly underneath this sentence.
I wasn’t thrilled with the theme this month. I’m not into magic in my books. I bought a 3 month subscription when there was a sale and you can’t skip months. So people with picky reading tastes need to beware.
The book this month is Worlds of Ink and Shadow by Lena Coakley. The synopsis sounds like something I could enjoy. It’s a fantasy rebelling of the lives of the Bronte sisters. The book comes with a letter from the author and a paper doll set. Very cute.
There are some other goodies in the box, including: white chocolate-mint lip balm by Geek Fire Labs, and two pieces of art by Evie Bookish. The glaringly obvious item of the box is a Funko Pop! Of Harry Potter. I’m going to get a ton of hate for saying this, especially taking into account recent celebrity deaths, but I’m sick to death of Harry Potter. So this item needs to go somewhere else.
This box wasn’t my cup of tea, but last month was perfect. I’ve been following the contents of the box for many months. I really love the bookish goodies that come each month, and the books all seem excellent. I’m just a picky lady when it comes to genre. 😉
