January – April Book Haul

Hey bookends,

I haven’t hauled in a long long long time, so I though I would show y’all the books I’ve gotten over the past 4 months.

January:

I received Roseblood by A.G. Howard from my January Owl Crate (I had a post but the pictures got messed up after I posted it for some reason). I then received a gift card from my family for my birthday so I bought The Girl in the Spider’s Web by David Lagercrantz.

February:

This month I got a lot of books. I bought The Merciless by Danielle Vega, Dangerous Deception by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stool, The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh, Liar of Dreams by Libba Bray, and The Cuckoo’s Calling and The Silkworm,  both by Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling). Then in I received Caraval by Stephanie Garber in my February Owl Crate.

March:

I bought Drama by Raina Telgemeier, It’s Not Like I Planned It This Way by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Uglies: Shay’s Story by Scott Westerfeld, Legend by Marie Luand Gerald’s Game by Stephen King. There is also my March Owl Crate book in this picture but I don’t want to spoil the box before I post it.

April:

I bought Broken Hearts by R.L. Stine, The Bone Labyrinth by James Rollins, Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Claire, and  The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey. I also reviewed my April Owl Crate book but, again, I haven’t posted that unboxing.


So that is all the books I have gotten over the past four months. I would love to know if you have read any of these books and if so what you thought of them.

February Owl Crate

I know this is super late but I though that I would show y’all what I got in January’s Owl Crate. The theme for this box was Circus, items inspired by, you guessed it, the circus.  If you would like to know more about the Owl Create subscription service then click the link here.

First thing I pulled out of the box was this beautiful tote bag inspired by The Night Circus, created by Evie Bookish

 

 

 

 

 


 

candle

 

 

Next came this amazing smelling, candle called Le Cirque des Rêves by Frostbeard Studios. It came with a little book mark, something I always need, has a mix of “Carmel Popcorn, Roasted Chestnuts, and Bonfire fragrances”, and was made especially for Owl Crate. 

 

 

 


Chapstick

 

 

 

Then I grabbed a lip balm by Geek Fire Labs in the flavor, Midway Mini Doughnuts which is delicious.

Next I pulled out this adorable page flags bGirl of All Work. There are 5 different designs that I absolutely love.

There was also this little card to download samples of the Carival and Star-Touched audio books.

Finally I pulled out the book, Caraval by Stephanie Garber!! I don’t know exactly what this is about (I’m trying to avoid spoilers), but I did place it on my top five debuts of 2017. The book came with a letter from the author, a signed bookplate, and an exclusive quote card.

And here is the design on the spoiler card and the matching pin .

Last but not least we have the spoiler for March’s box. The theme was Sailors and Ships, and Seas. The sneak peak reveals that there will be an item from BoyGirlParty in that box. 

 

 

 


So here is everything in the February box. I hope you enjoyed this post. If you received an owl crate, which item do you think is the best? whole box

February Owl Crate

Hey Bookends,

It is time for another Owl Crate unboxing. I would like to warn you guys that I don’t have the information card with me right now so I may not be as specific about the things in the box but I will do the best I can. If you would like more information about the box click here to go to the official website. This month’s box was really awesome and I can’t wait to show you what was inside.

The theme of this moth’s box was science fiction, so it was a logical thing to pull out this wooden, Doctor Who tardis magnet made by vectorengraving. I seriously love Doctor Who and thought that this was a wonderful addition to the box and that the design is beautiful.

The next object was hard not to notice. It is a small, light pink tote bag which has all of the couples from the Lunar Chronicles on the front. I love this bag so much, I have decided to put it in my car and make it the bag with which I will carry my books with. It is a great size, not huge but big enough to fit multiple books, and if I am remembering right the bag was designed by the Owl Crate staff themselves.

So something new in this month’s box (at least for me) is that it contained two books. Sense the theme is science fiction they decided to send the first science fiction novel ever published. Now I don’t believe that I have ever read this book, maybe in school, but it sounds really interesting. (goodreads page here)

Finally we have our last/official book of the box and it is a 2016 debut novel! The book is The Love that Split the World and it came with a note from the author and a signed sticker (I know there is another name for it but I can’t remember what it is called.) From what I can tell this book is a contemporary time travel novel about how a girl must save a boy in order to save the world. (goodreads page here)

So that is all that was in this month’s crate. I thought that there were a lot of cool items and really like that they included two books.

That is all I have for you guys today, I hope you enjoyed this post. Follow me on goodreads and Instagram to see what I am reading daily. Thank you for reading.
