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.

March Owl Crate 

Hey Bookends,

I received my March Owl Crate earlier this week and can’t wait to show you guys what I got! If you would like to know more about the Owl Create subscription service then click the link here. This was another amazing box that we are about to dive into.

This theme for this month’s box is Writer’s Block. To go along with the theme was this little booklet called 642 tiny things to write about and is from Chronicle Books. I was flipping through the prompts and found many of them to be a little funny and quirky while others are serious and thought provoking. I thought this notebook was really cute

The next thing I pulled out of the box was this pair of banned books socks by Out of Print. These are really cute.

I then pulled out this adorable fake quilled pen from Kikkerland.

Next came these cute little pins which have quotes about reading on them. These are a custom pack made just for Owl Create and were made by Bookworm Boutique. I thought that these were so cute, I put my favorite one on the lanyard with my keys on it (which I wear all the time.)

And finally we have the book. This month we received The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner (goodreads page here) The book seems to be a coming of age story, which is a genera I really enjoy. The book also came with a letter from the author and a post card which seems to only make sense to those who have read the book.

So that is everything in the crate!

  That is all I have for this post. I hope you found it entertaining. If you would like to see what I am reading daily follow me on goodreads, Instagram, and Twitter. Thanks for reading.

February Wrap-Up/ March TBR

Hey Bookends,
So I had a horrible reading month. Not because I didn’t read a lot, I read five books, but because I didn’t read many books that were on my TBR. I did the exact same thing last month and I am not proud at all. However all the books I read were really good, so that’s the good part. Do know that none of these books have review out yet but they will be coming.

  • I first finish Tiger’s Quest by Colleen Houck and gave it 4.5/5 stars.
I then participated in the Rainbowthon (TBR and Wrap Up)
  • I started off by reading Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amy Kaufman giving it 5/5 stars
  • I then read The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan and gave it 4/5 stars
  • Next I read The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz and gave it 4/5 stars
  • I finished out the month with The Color Purple by Alice Walker and gave it 4/5 stars (There will be no review for this because it was a book I read for school and I have over analised it too much.)
