Owlcrate Special Edition Unboxing:  The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue (SPOILERS!)

Owlcrate Special Edition Unboxing: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue (SPOILERS!)

Posted December 4, 2020 in Bookish Things, Unboxings // 0 Comments

Hello loves! I am here to give my full, enthusiastic, screaming-from-the-mountain-tops review of the Addie LaRue Owlcrate special edition box. I know, I know.  The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue came out on October 6th, right?  And it is now December 4th?  Well, funny story about that. Yes, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue came out nearly two months ago now, and nearly everyone has been talking about it to the point of me nearly needing to hop off all my socials because holy smokes can a girl read a book a couple months after its release without having nothing-but-that-book in her feed […]

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, […]

The Bookish Swag Dilemma

The Bookish Swag Dilemma

Posted August 21, 2020 in Bookish Things // 4 Comments

I love my fandom merch as much as the next girl.  Finding art and mugs and bookmarks and tote bags designed around my favorite stories is always exhilerating.  Especially when things are created around less popular fandoms, or when they’re particularly original. Still, across several years of subscribing on and off to multiple book boxes, I discovered something. There is such thing as too much merch for me. I know, what a shock? Maybe it was Marie Kondo or maybe just good common sense, but I finally had to step back and acknowledge that I was getting a lot of “stuff”, […]

Dawn of a New World: An October 2019 OwlCrate Unboxing

Posted November 7, 2019 in Unboxings // 0 Comments

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 […]

High Stakes: A September Illumicrate Unboxing // SPOILERS!

Posted October 14, 2019 in Unboxings // 0 Comments

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 […]
