Seraphina // MYOBB #17

Seraphina // MYOBB #17

Happy Saturday, my beautiful monsters!  I hope everybody had an amazing New Years Eve and Day.  I haven’t really celebrated since I was in college, but Matt and I have a New Years Eve taco tradition and basically just gather ourselves and prep for 2018.  Which is going to be an AMAZING year in books, by the way! This week, I’m going to be focusing on Seraphina by Rachel Hartman.  This was one of my absolutely favorite reads of 2017, and I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts on Tess of the Road with y’all next month!  In the meanwhile, though, I […]

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them // MYOBB #16

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them // MYOBB #16

Happy Saturday everybody!  Did y’all have an amazing Christmas?  What’re your plans for the New Year?  Matt and I never really do anything special for New Years – between work and so many of our friends having kids, it’s just turning into going out for tacos and snuggling in at home.  Anybody going to any big New Years Eve parties? So the poll for this week’s box was a three-way tie.  Given that, I had to choose and I went with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them because that seemed like a really fun box to make.  I’ll keep Seraphina and Daughter of […]

The Night Circus // MYOBB #15

The Night Circus // MYOBB #15

I love The Night Circus.  Thank you from the tip of my nose to the bottoms of my toes to those who voted for this one!  This book was one of the highlights of my year – it brought me into a magically world at a really difficult time in my life, so on a personal level, it was amazing.  Then of course there is the book itself, which is just brilliant and beautiful and touching and one of my favorite love stories.  We definitely need to see a real book box for this one. But in the meanwhile, there is me! […]

The Fellowship of the Ring // MYOBB #14

The Fellowship of the Ring // MYOBB #14

Happy Saturday, my beautiful monsters!  What have you been up to this week?  I’ve had a pretty good week – I made my first batch of Christmas cookies and we had our department yankee swap at work… but I’ll talk more about that at the December wrap up in a week or so. The end of the year is coming fast, huh? Well this week’s book box came by just barely.  I had one vote on the last day of the poll.  If y’all don’t vote you’re leaving it up to me to pick the boxes, and to be honest?  You […]

How the Grinch Stole Christmas // MYOBB #13

How the Grinch Stole Christmas // MYOBB #13

All the Whos down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot, but THE GRINCH, who lived just north of Whoville DID NOT. Bienvenue and welcome, mes amis, and I’m super super excited for this book box! It’s with the holiday spirit and it’s definitely one of my guilty pleasure books/films.  I’ve been reading this one since I was a kid, then I had years of experience reading this to five and six-year-olds.  I have half the story memorized.  Cindy Lou Who and the Grinch and Max are Christmas classics and this should be fun. How the Grinch Stole Christmas Box A Heart-Grew-Three-Sizes Inspired Gift […]

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz // MYOBB #12

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz // MYOBB #12

Happy Saturday everybody!  Americans… happy belated Thanksgiving!  Did you eat an eternity of turkey and a mountain of mashed potatoes? I did!  I hope everyone has had a lovely week and I’m thrilled to bring you this week’s MYOBB! I love it when y’all vote on classics.  This one was tied with last week’s Legend box, and I couldn’t help myself.  I love The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  I am filled with random facts about the film and earlier this year I bought the entire series of Oz books in these gorgeous volumes, and just… LOVE.  It’s the quintessential American fairytale and has […]
