May Wrap Up

Hello lovelies! How are you? Today’s blog post is going to be all about my May wrap up. May was a rough month for reading. I was in a major reading slump. The books that I did read however did get a 4 and higher. Quality or quantity right. I am starting to get my groove back. Please leave me a comment down letting me know what you read in the month of May. Hope you have a great day.

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.

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.

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.

TBR, top 5

Chick-Lit-A-Thon TBR

Hi lovelies! How are you? Today’s blog is all about the 5 books that I am planing on reading for the Chick-Lit-A-Thon Hope you have an awesome day! 

The Chick-Lit-A-Thon is a read-a-thon hosted by Lisa (from Books and Smiles https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpbEq3M_pDU), Sophie (from All Things Equilateral https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeYuG2yH7X1sjdKLZy5Q6lw) and Jen (from Jen Talks Audiobooks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G42VWc0_IlU). The goal of this read-a-thon is to read five books. Each book corresponds with a challenge. It runs from May 1st to May 31, so you have a whole month to read 5 books. 

The books do not have to be romance, they can be anything you consider chick lit. 

The challenges are:

1. Read a book with pink on the cover. 

2. Read something with music as part of the plot or character (a rock band, rock star, singer)

3. Read an old chick-lit book that you’ve been wanting to read, but haven’t made the time for.

4. Read something by an author who’s written a lot of books that you haven’t read, yet. 

5. Read a serious chick-lit novel, like women’s fiction or historical or whatever you choose to think of as more “serious”. 

My TBR is:
