Writing a Great Hook:  August’s Scribbler Unboxing (SPOILERS!)

Writing a Great Hook: August’s Scribbler Unboxing (SPOILERS!)

Posted September 25, 2020 in Bookish Things, Unboxings // 0 Comments

Good morning everyone! I decided to splurge for another month and picked up August’s Scribbler box!  As you know from my past unboxings, this is a sort of unique box in that it’s not intended to push a sensational new release.  Scribbler is more a care package for writers and each month focuses on a specific theme or skill and elaborates ways to master it, and provides opportunities to connect.  For readers who are aspiring writers, this is an interesting box and every six months or so, it lures me back in. This month’s Scribbler theme was “hook”. In writing, […]

Dawn of a New World: An October 2019 OwlCrate Unboxing

Here is is, my loves. My very last OwlCrate unboxing. It’s been a long, seven month journey. Before I talk about the box, I want to tell you that my decision to cancel this box is in no way related to its quality or value.  As far as book boxes go, OwlCrate is tops and I wholeheartedly recommend it every time.  I simply have reached a point in my life where I want to pare down on subscription boxes and bookish swag.  If there is a box I do come back and order from time to time, you better believe it […]

This is my very last Illumicrate on my current subscription plan!  I’ve been coming with you pretty consistently with Illumicrate unboxing because I bought a six-month subscription right before we moved up here, because I love getting monthly surprises in the mail.  I had a couple good experiences with Illumicrate when they were a quarterly box, so this was a monthly subscription I was really looking forward to digging into.  I’ll go into a little more depth on the six-box experience at the end to give you my full take away! For this month, Illumicrate’s theme was high stakes.  The promised […]

Armed & Dangerous: An August 2019 Illumicrate Unboxing

Good mourningly beautiful monsters!  I hope everyone is having a marvelous day!  Today I’m going to be sharing an unboxing of Illumicrate’s August box.  This month, the theme was Armed & Dangerous.  The general vibe for this seemed to be half weapons, and half dangerous characters?  It’s a bit of a loose theme, as you’ll see when we get to the items, but “armed and dangerous” has a general… fighterly feel?  You’ll see! Now for the technical details! This post is in no way sponsored.  I have a six-month Illumicrate subscription and I just choose to share these unboxing here on […]
