Throne of Glass- One Time Box

Hello! I’m here with an unboxing of the One Time Throne of Glass box from The Bookish Box! I currently subscribe to their boxes, but currently I am only getting their shirts monthly rather than the whole box. But they do One Time Boxes and I was lucky enough to be able to purchase the Thorne of Glass box. I purchased a while back the ACOTAR box and loved it so I’m happy to be able to have both!

img_0410

So an item I’m really happy to receive is another Book Beau! I have quite a few of these and I honestly use them all…so I can always use more for my collection! I love this color and the design is cute! Plus the quote is from my favorite out of the series because Heir of Fire broke me…

Definitely check Book Beau out though! Shop link here: Book Beau

img_0412

I’m really happy about this tumbler, because I had to throw all my others away since I used them so much. I’m trying not to use this one that much because I want to keep it for as long as I can but I do want to use it every once in a while. It’s so pretty!

It was created by Bookworm Boutique and I’ll leave their shop link for you here: Bookworm Boutique

img_0413

So I think this is the item I am most excited for! It’s an enamel pin from Ink and Wonder and I love it so much! I love their items and I shop from them often so I was over the moon when this item was included! I also got a pin from their most recent box and it was ACOTAR themed (the pin/not the box).

I’m so happy to add this to my collection! It looks beautiful on my pin board!

Shop link: Ink and Wonder

img_0414

So the next item is this really great candle that’s based on the character Manon! It was created by Whiskey Diamond Co off Etsy. It smells so good and while I like to keep my candles from my favorite fandoms unused I really want to burn this since it smells fantastic!

Shop link: Whiskey Diamond Co

We also have this Eilde print by Gabrielle Bujdoso and I love her art work and gah it’s so beautiful! I got distracted while typing this because I went to look for her site page to link so you can check her out and I was distracted for almost an hour because her work is so amazing.

CHECK HER OUT PLS…She’s amazing!

The Bookish Box Unboxing: February

So here is my February Bookish Box Unboxing for you! This box was okay but not my favorite!

img_0232

The first item we got is this wand keychain, which I think I’ve gotten from a different box but in necklace form. I think. I cant remember right now. This was created by The Bookish Shop.

img_0238

We also have the monthly doodle that’s included now in the boxes. And then we have the calendar print created by Hey Atlas. It’s definitely going on the little calendar easel I got in the previous box.

Hey Atlas Creative: Hey Atlas

img_0239

We have the Harry Potter art prints created by Gabriella Bujdoso, who is an amazing artist. I’m leaving her link here for you to check out: Gabriella Bujdoso

img_0240

I think my favorite item in this box was this Home Sweet Home Night Court enamel pin!! I am slowly starting to collect some pins for my collection at home and I want to get as many Sarah J Maas pins as I can and this one is a beautiful design to add to my collection! It’s from Ink and Wonder Designs which I’ll leave linked here: Ink and Wonder

img_0237

So I’m a bit upset. I saw that the box was coming with a Lord of the Rings item which as you know if you know me, is my favorite trilogy ever, and favorite book trilogy of all time. So I changed my subscription so I could go from just the shirt to the whole box, and this is what comes. A luggage tag. I wouldn’t be too mad if it was well made. It’s just like a papery material luggage tag. I don’t even think it would last one flight on my luggage honestly.

I mean the design is really cool, but it’s so cheaply made.

I’m just a bundle of disappointment.

img_0236

But it was kind of made up for with this ACOWAR shirt by Sarah J Maas. I love this quote and this design! It’s stunning! I wore it today and it was very comfortable and I am so happy to add it to my collection of shirts from them!

img_0235

We got the bath bomb from Pure Poetry Cosmetics and it’s from the Percy Jackson series. I’ve been slowly using my bath bombs I’ve been getting from my boxes so I hope I can get to this one soon! It looks really pretty!

img_0234

And here we have the book for this month! It’s The Queen’s Rising by Rebecca Ross! I have another copy of this book but I am happy to add this to my collection. And it also came with a signed book plate and a letter as well.

Summary: When her seventeenth summer solstice arrives, Brienna desires only two things: to master her passion and to be chosen by a patron.

Growing up in the southern Kingdom of Valenia at the renowned Magnalia House should have prepared her for such a life. While some are born with an innate talent for one of the five passions—art, music, dramatics, wit, and knowledge—Brienna struggled to find hers until she belatedly chose to study knowledge. However, despite all her preparations, Brienna’s greatest fear comes true—the solstice does not go according to plan and she is left without a patron.

Months later, her life takes an unexpected turn when a disgraced lord offers her patronage. Suspicious of his intent, and with no other choices, she accepts. But there is much more to his story, and Brienna soon discovers that he has sought her out for his own vengeful gain. For there is a dangerous plot being planned to overthrow the king of Maevana—the archrival kingdom of Valenia—and restore the rightful queen, and her magic, to the northern throne. And others are involved—some closer to Brienna than she realizes.

With war brewing between the two lands, Brienna must choose whose side she will remain loyal to—passion or blood. Because a queen is destined to rise and lead the battle to reclaim the crown. The ultimate decision Brienna must determine is: Who will be that queen?

Here is the spoiler card for you to look at!

And that is my unboxing for this month. Got some good items and some okay items. The next few ones are just going to be shirts because I just dont want to buy the whole box right now. I’d rather spend it on a box that I really want rather than one I’m neutral on.

Let me know your thoughts below and I’ll see you in my next unboxing!

Owlcrate Unboxing: February

I loved this box! It’s definitely one of my favorite boxes so far since I’ve signed up! I really loved the items and it was just so great! It was just filled with everything I could have ever wanted in a box!

The theme is Hidden Worlds and the book in this box is one I have read, and while I wasn’t a big fan of it I do love this addition!

img_0209

And the first item in this amazing box is this Through the Wardrobe candle from Books on Candles! The theme was from The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe! I’m honestly not sure how to navigate this website but I will leave the link below for you to check out. It smells so good so I can wait to burn this candle.

I have a bunch of stuff from Evie’s pages on Society6 and Redbubble, so I highly suggest that you check her work out!

img_0217

And the book for the month is The Hazel Wood! By Melissa Albert. I’ve already read this book, I got an ARC for review so I finished it and sadly it was only a 3 star for me. But I love the cover! And below you can see the Owlcrate edition which is green! And since I didn’t have a finished copy of the book this will be my nice finished copy! So pretty!

We also got stickers and a letter from the author which are in the picture below.

Summary: Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: her mother is stolen away―by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother’s stories are set. Alice’s only lead is the message her mother left behind: “Stay away from the Hazel Wood.”

Alice has long steered clear of her grandmother’s cultish fans. But now she has no choice but to ally with classmate Ellery Finch, a Hinterland superfan who may have his own reasons for wanting to help her. To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother’s tales began―and where she might find out how her own story went so wrong.

img_0219

Here is the full green cover that is exclusive to Owlcrate!

img_0220

The book is also signed by the author! And there’s a note that it’s an exclusive edition! I’m so happy!

Summary: Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

The Bookish Box: January

Hello! I’m here to talk about my January Bookish Box! I know I said that I was planning on cutting down on it but I wanted to get the full box for February but I rechanged by Subscription too early so I also ended up paying for the full version of January. So once February is shipped I was change it back to just the shirt!

Anyways here is my unboxing for January!

The theme for January was Galactic Adventures so it has some space themed items. I thought I knew what the book for this month would be but I apparently didn’t because I was surprised.

I got this magnet with the theme of Firefly and it was designed by the Bookish Shop for this box. I haven’t seen Firefly before but it might be something I’m interested in so we’ll have to see what I think. This magnet is really pretty!

img_3377.jpg

The next items is this bookmark for Star Wars, this Zenith print, and the monthly doodle. I want to color this in so I think I will! It’s so pretty!

And here is this stunning necklace! I’m not sure who designed it or anything but it’s so stunning and I really plan to wear it all the time! It just looks amazing!

And the book this month is Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings. I have heard many mixed things about this book. Mainly bad things about it. So I’m really going to go in this with not that great expectations so I hope they break them and make me really like this book.

Summary: Most know Androma Racella as the Bloody Baroness, a powerful mercenary whose reign of terror stretches across the Mirabel Galaxy. To those aboard her glass starship, Marauder, however, she’s just Andi, their friend and fearless leader.

But when a routine mission goes awry, the Marauder’s all-girl crew is tested as they find themselves in a treacherous situation and at the mercy of a sadistic bounty hunter from Andi’s past.

Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a ruthless ruler waits in the shadows of the planet Xen Ptera, biding her time to exact revenge for the destruction of her people. The pieces of her deadly plan are about to fall into place, unleashing a plot that will tear Mirabel in two.

Andi and her crew embark on a dangerous, soul-testing journey that could restore order to their shipor just as easily start a war that will devour worlds. As the Marauder hurtles toward the unknown, and Mirabel hangs in the balance, the only certainty is that in a galaxy run on lies and illusion, no one can be trusted.

And here is the spoiler card for this month incase you’re interested in it!

Book of the Month Unboxing: January

Hello! Here is my Book of the Month book for January! For those that don’t know, you get to pick your book for each month and they’re adult books! Each month you can pick one book, and add another book for a discounted price!

This month I just got one book and I’m here to talk about it!

img_3414

So the book I got this month is The Woman in the Window by A J Finn and it seems like everyone is raving about this book! I have heard really amazing things about this and I can’t wait to read it soon! I really do plan to get to it asap!

Summary: Anna Fox lives alone, a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times–and spying on her neighbors.

Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, and their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare.

What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems.

Bookish Box Unboxing: December

Hello! I’m here with my December Bookish Box Unboxing. This box wasn’t really interesting to me and I was putting my subscription as only t-shirt and for January I believe it is, but for February I moved it back because I wanted the items for that box based on what they mentioned on their instagram. But yeah once that’s done I’ll be going back to just the t-shirt for month to month.

I’d prefer to just like focus on other subscriptions I currently have.

* I had to get images off google images because I deleted all my images off my WordPress drive and also my phone so yeah….*

This box was themed Destined and I really didn’t care for much of the items or the book, but I liked an item or two in this month!

thebookishbox_23101618_163883930865317_5094819734138912768_n

I got this cute ornament that has book titles on it, and I thought it was really cute to add to my little collection! It was created by Hello World Paper Co on Etsy and I like the modern novels paired with classic novels. Thought it added a nice touch! Etsy: Hello World Paper Co

Of course my favorite item in this box was the Aelin Fireheart mug with one of my favorite fae on there! I have this in my collection of mugs so I’m super happy to have it! I love her world, and I hope they one day use her High Lady of the Night Court design on a mug so they match! Site link here: The Watercolorie

We also got the shirt, which is an added item in each box they send out. I always get it because they have cool designs for shirts. I’m not a Harry Potter fan honestly but I like the idea of this shirt. I got the image off of: My Subscription Addiction

The-Bookish-Box-December-2018-0020-733x733@2x

And then we also got this Harry Potter candle which actually smells really good so I may actually burn this candle!

And the image is also off of: Hello Subscription

We also have this month’s prints with the Monthly doodle drawn by Doodles by Christina and the Mother of Dragons doodle by Dani Marie Draws Instagram

And this month’s book I have no idea what it is about so here’s the summary for you! Let me know if it’s something you would be interested in reading. I have never heard of this book so I can’t tell you if I plan to or not in the future…Let me know if you have so maybe I can make an informed decision!

Summary: The house on Arrow Island is full of mystery.

Yet when Mei arrives, she can’t help feeling relieved. She’s happy to spend the summer in an actual mansion tutoring a rich man’s daughter if it means a break from her normal life—her needy mother, her delinquent brother, their tiny apartment in the city. And Ella Morison seems like an easy charge, sweet and well behaved.

What Mei doesn’t know is that something is very wrong in the Morison household.

Though she tries to focus on her duties, Mei becomes increasingly distracted by the family’s problems and her own complicated feelings for Ella’s brother, Henry. But most disturbing of all are the unexplained noises she hears at night—the howling and thumping and cries.

Mei is a sensible girl. She isn’t superstitious; she doesn’t believe in ghosts. Yet she can’t shake her fear that there is danger lurking in the shadows of this beautiful house, a darkness that could destroy the family inside and out… and Mei along with them.

And that was my unboxing for December. I hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you soon with my future unboxing for January! Let me know your thoughts below as I would love to know your thoughts!

Illumicrate Unboxing

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a Happy New Year Eve and Day!

I’m here to show you my November Illumicrate unboxing! I ended up getting it a bit late and got it towards the end of December so I haven’t had much of a chance to do a post about it. But I think besides Owlcrate this is one of my favorite boxes I get each month!

So Illumicrate is a quarterly box and you pay for the box and you end up with two books in the box! Recently it’s been an ARC in the box and they send such beautiful editions!

Website link here: Illumicrate

img_3141.jpg

The first item in this box is this really beautiful print from Nutmeg and Arlo on Easy! I really do like this quote and it really is true honestly! At least I think so! I love Nutmeg and Arlo’s stuff, they have really cute pins and prints and I always want to buy stuff from them but I always don’t because I tend to spend my money on books….but you should definitely check them out!

Link here: Nutmeg and Arlo

This item to me is kind of sad, because I love Meraki Candles and unfortunately they are shutting down. I only ever got the candles they included in the boxes because shipping from out of the country tends to be expensive, so sadly I never bought a candle from them which is something I regret but I wish them all the best in their next adventure!

They also included this sampler of This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada, I had the ARC but never got around to it sadly, but I do plan on reading it soon since I have the audiobook.

Summary: Catarina Agatta is a hacker. She can cripple mainframes and crash through firewalls, but that’s not what makes her special. In Cat’s world, people are implanted with technology to recode their DNA, allowing them to change their bodies in any way they want. And Cat happens to be a gene-hacking genius.

That’s no surprise, since Cat’s father is Dr. Lachlan Agatta, a legendary geneticist who may be the last hope for defeating a plague that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. But during the outbreak, Lachlan was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called Cartaxus, leaving Cat to survive the last two years on her own.

When a Cartaxus soldier, Cole, arrives with news that her father has been killed, Cat’s instincts tell her it’s just another Cartaxus lie. But Cole also brings a message: before Lachlan died, he managed to create a vaccine, and Cole needs Cat’s help to release it and save the human race.

Now Cat must decide who she can trust: The soldier with secrets of his own? The father who made her promise to hide from Cartaxus at all costs? In a world where nature itself can be rewritten, how much can she even trust herself?

So I got this sampler of Iron Gold by Pierce Brown and I can’t really read this since I haven’t read the Red Rising books by him so I need to do that before starting Iron Gold.

I’ll leave a summary even though it’s a continuation of the Red Rising Trilogy

Summary: A decade ago, Darrow was the hero of the revolution he believed would break the chains of the Society. But the Rising has shattered everything: Instead of peace and freedom, it has brought endless war. Now he must risk everything he has fought for on one last desperate mission. Darrow still believes he can save everyone, but can he save himself?

And throughout the worlds, other destinies entwine with Darrow’s to change his fate forever:

A young Red girl flees tragedy in her refugee camp and achieves for herself a new life she could never have imagined.

An ex-soldier broken by grief is forced to steal the most valuable thing in the galaxy—or pay with his life.

And Lysander au Lune, the heir in exile to the sovereign, wanders the stars with his mentor, Cassius, haunted by the loss of the world that Darrow transformed, and dreaming of what will rise from its ashes.

Red Rising was the story of the end of one universe, and Iron Goldis the story of the creation of a new one. Witness the beginning of a stunning new saga of tragedy and triumph from masterly New York Times bestselling author Pierce Brown

I also got this stunning edition of City of Brass by S A Chakraborty. I had read a good chunk of this before and I ended up putting it down but this edition really makes me want to go and check it out again so maybe I’ll pick it up again and try to finish it. This cover is just so stunning! I love it!

Summary: Step into The City of Brass, the spellbinding debut from S. A. Chakraborty—an imaginative alchemy of The Golem and the Jinni, The Grace of Kings, and One Thousand and One Nights, in which the future of a magical Middle Eastern kingdom rests in the hands of a clever and defiant young con artist with miraculous healing gifts

Nahri has never believed in magic. Certainly, she has power; on the streets of 18th century Cairo, she’s a con woman of unsurpassed talent. But she knows better than anyone that the trade she uses to get by—palm readings, zars, healings—are all tricks, sleights of hand, learned skills; a means to the delightful end of swindling Ottoman nobles.

But when Nahri accidentally summons an equally sly, darkly mysterious djinn warrior to her side during one of her cons, she’s forced to accept that the magical world she thought only existed in childhood stories is real. For the warrior tells her a new tale: across hot, windswept sands teeming with creatures of fire, and rivers where the mythical marid sleep; past ruins of once-magnificent human metropolises, and mountains where the circling hawks are not what they seem, lies Daevabad, the legendary city of brass?a city to which Nahri is irrevocably bound.

In that city, behind gilded brass walls laced with enchantments, behind the six gates of the six djinn tribes, old resentments are simmering. And when Nahri decides to enter this world, she learns that true power is fierce and brutal. That magic cannot shield her from the dangerous web of court politics. That even the cleverest of schemes can have deadly consequences.

After all, there is a reason they say be careful what you wish for . . .

And the book in the box is Artemis by Andy Weir! I have never read The Martian by him but this one sounds really interesting! Plus this cover is really cool and it has black splayed edges which I love! So happy to add this to my collection!

Summary: Jazz Bashara is a criminal.

Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you’re not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you’ve got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.

Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of Jazz’s problems, as she learns that she’s stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself – and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even more unlikely than the first.

It also came with this travel brochure and this bookmark for Artemis as well and I think they’re super neat!
