I wish I had my life more together to get you these book box unveiling posts quicker but alas, it's just not meant to be, lambs.
The theme for Owlcrate's June box was Royalty, and I honestly thought we were going to go maybe a Beauty and the Beast direction, perhaps in a Maleficent direction, but no. We went a really kind of... odd/half assed direction.
My Lady Jane by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand, and Jodi Meadows. It's supposed to be kind of a play on Princess Bride, so we'll see. We also got a handwritten note from the authors, very cool, and a paper crown, totally stupid and pointless. Even my one year old thought it was dumb. It's definitely not a book I would have picked up while looking at shelves in my beloved book store but I guess it's always a surprise. It'll get read eventually, it's not on the top of my list though.
Cinder. Easily my favorite thing in the box for sure. I also loved the print inspired by the book Red Queen, which was created by Evie Bookish. This one I'll likely find a cool frame for my office.
The box teaser said we'd be getting something fun from Craftedvan, and I'm a fan of their stuff so I was pretty excited. Turns out, just another set of magnetic bookmarks I won't use because they are kind of the shittiest type of bookmark you can have. I don't know about anyone else, but I always get little tears on the top of my pages from them and meh.. I usually toss them.
