Mythical Menagerie // Ink & Wonder’s May 2019 WONDER CRATE

Mythical Menagerie // Ink & Wonder’s May 2019 WONDER CRATE

I’ve been watching Ink and Wonder Designs for the last two years because I love their gorgeous designs.  Ink and Wonder uses so many beautiful colors and the art has so much pop.  Unfortunately, Australia is a long way from the Eastern coast of the United States, and it hasn’t always been feasible for me to order one of their boxes, because of the shipping.  With the Wonder Crate rebranding a bit, the price came down and… I wanted to try it. May’s box was Mythical Menagerie, featuring all our favorite mythical creatures from across books and pop culture.  For […]

May NerdyPost Unboxing – The Weasleys (SPOILERS!)

May NerdyPost Unboxing – The Weasleys (SPOILERS!)

Another month of Nerdy Post!  For those who haven’t popped over for my other Nerdy Post unboxing, Nerdy Post is a monthly subscription box that centers around a theme.  There are different tiers of box that cost different amounts, depending upon what you want to receive.

Sign me up for this discussion, guys, because it’s a good one. As bloggers, bookstagrammers, and general influencers in the bookish community, we have a responsibility to give a genuine, honest review of the novels we read and the items we purchase. With items we’re buying on our own, this is easy!  I know people squirm about giving negative […]

Bookish Things That Aren’t Books – Some Fab Swag I Love

Bookish Things That Aren’t Books – Some Fab Swag I Love

There are two reasons why I keep subscribing to book boxes. The first is that OwlCrate has forced me to step out of my comfort zone and try new things.  For example, The Hearts We Sold and Foolish Hearts are books I wouldn’t have picked up on my own, and I loved them both.  Also the exclusive covers are a huge perk for me. The second reason is the swag! Frankly speaking, if you don’t enjoy the swag in a book box, there’s really no point in subscribing.  The books themselves, even in hard copy at full price, still come to about […]
