Bookmas Day 9

Hello lovelies. How are you? All throughout the rest of December I will be participating in Bookmas. Bookmas was created by Hailey at Hailey in Bookland. It is essentially a blogathon or videoathon for the 24 days leading up to Christmas Eve. There are 24 challenges or prompts that we post each day leading up to Christmas Eve. Each challenge or prompt has something to do with the end of the end or the start of a new year. I have always wanted to do Bookmas and now I am so excited to be a part of it. So without further or due let’s get into Bookmas.

Unhauling of Books

Hello lovelies! How are you? Today’s blog post is all about the books that I have recently unhauled. These books that you are about to see are books that I have either read and know that I will not be re reading them, books that I read and didn’t like or books that I have lost interest in. I am going to be giving these to friends and family and the rest of them I will be donating them. Please leave me a comment down below letting me know if you ever unhaul your books and if so what have you unhauled recently.

May 2018 OwlCrate Unboxing

Hello lovelies. Today’s blog post is all about this month’s OwlCrate box. Please leave me a comment below letting me know what items are your favourite from this month’s box. Hope you have a great day! 

IMG_1118IMG_1119

First as always is the spoiler card for this month’s box. This month’s theme is fight like a girl. I always love OwlCrate’s spoiler card. The artwork is always beautiful and fits the theme just right.

After that we are getting a wall hanging designed by Evie Bookish. The quote says “remember that you are a wolf and you cannot be caged”. The quote is from A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I love that the design is so well detailed yet so simplistic. 

IMG_1122 IMG_1124

Then we have a bath bomb from Whipped Up Wonderful. It smells very fruity. It is inspired by Zelie’s magic from Children of Blood and Bone. I will absolutely be using this.

Next, we have a enamel pin that says “when in doubt go to the library” in the shape of a book. This pin is inspired by none other then Hermione. It was designed by Out of Print. The quote is a saying that I live by. 

IMG_1127IMG_1126

In this box we also have a bookmark from Indigo Eleven. On one side it says “if I am marching to my death, then I will march to it as a girl without fear.”  Then on the other side it says “you are strong. Fierce. Capable beyond measure.” Both quotes are from the Wrath and the Dawn duology. I love the design of both sides of the bookmarks, the colours and flowers are beautiful and fits the season.

Then we get an art print from Melanie Bourgeois. This print is inspired by Inej from Six of Crows. This print is down right gorgeous. I feel like it needs to be framed.

In addition to the main book we have this month OwlCrate added another book to this book. This book is called Catching Stars by Cayla Keenan. It follows a powerful witch named Jayin who is trying to survive. Her paths cross with Maddix, a man wrongfully in prison and just escaped. Throughout the story they become the most unlikeliest of allies. This edition is an Owl Crate exclusive from Oftomes Publishing.

The book for this months box is Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young. This follows Eelyn who is a Viking. She ends up face to face with her brother on the battlefield – hr brother she thought died 5 years ago.  She ends up being forced to live among a rival clan, and she discovers life altering secrets. This book is one of my most anticipated books for 2018, I am so excited. This book is also signed. With the book we also get a letter from the author and an exclusive pin.

Every month we get a pamphlet all about the behind the scenes of making this month’s box.
