Please leave me a comment down below letting me know what your answers are to these questions. Hope you have a good day. 

1.) Pay day! – A book you would buy right now. Cost doesn’t matter!

A book that I would buy right now and the cost doesn’t matter would be the Barnes and Noble edition of Little Women. It is just gorgeous. 

2.) Pay a bill – A book you would get rid of right now

A book that I would get rid of right now is Behind Closed Doors. I read it last year and I hated it. 

3.) Doctor appointment – a book that makes you feel better when you are down

A book that makes me feel better when I am down is I am The Messenger. It brings back my faith in humanity. 

4.) Meeting – a book or series you felt obligated to read because of the hype

A book or series that I felt obligated to read because of the hype is the Kiss Quotient. I loved this book. It is worth the hype. 

5.) Lunch date – a book or series that you feel in love with because a friend recommended it to you.

A book or series that I fell in love with because a friend recommended it to me is the Boston Girl. This is now one of my favourite books of all time. It was such a well done story. 

6.) Work/school week – a book that was hard to get through

A book that was hard to get through was Night by Elie Weisel. This book was hard to get through because it is a Elie’s memoir about his time during the Holocaust. It was heartbreaking and beautifully written. 

7.) Gym day – a book that gets your heart pumping because it was such an exciting page turner.

A book that gets my heart pumping because it was such an exciting page turner is the Neighbours by Hannah Mary Mckinnon. 

8.) Date night – a book with your favourite romantic couple

img_2990

A book with one of my favourite romantic couples is To All the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before. I love Lara Jean and Peter together. They are so cute. 

9.) Vacation – a book or series you would want to binge on if you had all the time in the world.

A book series that I would like to binge on if I had all the time in the world is the Anne of Green Gables series. I have only read the first two. 

10.) To Do List – a book that you keep meaning to get to but don’t have the time for

A book that I have kept meaning to get to, but don’t have the time for is Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey. I am so intimated by this book, but I want to read it.

If I Only Owned 30 Books

Hello lovelies! How are you? Today’s blog post is all about the 30 books that I have read that are on my book shelves that I would keep. I got this idea from Hailey in Bookland. She got the idea from the book by Marie Kondo called The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Essentially Marie stated in her book that when it’s time to unhaul your books only keep 30 that bring you joy. I will not only be keeping these books. This is only for fun. It’s pretend. These 30 books I can not live without and bring me so much joy. Please leave me a comment down below letting me know what are some of the books that bring you joy.

January OwlCrate Unboxing

Hello lovelies. How are you? Today’s blog post is all about my January OwlCrate unboxing. OwlCrate is a monthly subscription box that gives you one newly released Young Adult Hardcover signed book and other bookish goodies. If you haven’t checked out OwlCrate please do it is an awesome company. This month’s theme is Magical Artifacts. Please leave me a comment down below letting me know what your favourite item was in this month’s box. 

The first item that I see in this box is the spoiler card. I love the artwork of this one. It reminds me of Alice falling down the rabbit hole. I am not going to look at the back of the card because I don’t want to spoil myself. 

Next I see this white box with the OwlCrate logo on it. Inside is this gorgeous gold bracelets with antlers all over it (it is adjustable which is awesome). This item was inspired by Shadow and Bone trilogy and created by Team OwlCrate. I will absolutely be wearing this. 

Another item I see is these Harry Potter inspired socks. I love how they have the Deathly Hallows symbol on them. These socks were designed baby Team OwlCrate and Michelle Gray. 

Thirdly in this box is a wooden letter opener. This item was inspired by the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and it was designed by Juniper and Ivy Designs. This is such a unique item. I love it. 

Next is zipper pouch  inspired by A Darker Shade of Magic. On one side it says “Kell wore a very peculiar coat” and on the other side hit says “as travars”. This pouch was designed by Stella’s Bookish Art. It is beautiful. I love the colours of it.

Another item intros box is a wall tapestry. This item was inspired by The Golden Compass and it was designed by Holly Dunn Designs. It says “without stories we wouldn’t be human beings at all.” I think this is absolutely stunning. I love the use of blue and silver.

The final item in this month’s box before the book is a enamel pin. This pin was inspired by the book of the month and was designed by Alchemy and Ink. OwlCrate has announced that they will be including a high quality enamel pin in every month. Each pin will be inspired by the book of the month. 

The book of the month is Gilded Wolves by Rochani Chokshi. The year is 1889, and the streets of Paris are filled with ancient secrets. When Severin is offered the chance to redeem his true inheritance, he must exist the help of a band of talented misfits to seek out the lost artifact. They just combine their various knowledge, witts and skills to find this mysterious item. This book is also an exclusive cover and is signed by the author. We also get a letter from the author and an exclusive luggage tag. 

Under the book is the pamphlet with interviews with the author and a vendor, word searches, comparing the covers, the monthly photo challenge and a sneak peek into next month. 

Next month’s theme is Whimsical Beasts and every box will get an exclusive item from Four Seasons Fox.

― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie
