So my mother told me if I finished my gold award she would let me subscribe to a book box (of a reasonable price) for the year (this is also a substitution for college care packages). I did my research and subscribed to Nerdy Bookworm (Something like $30-40 a month) and after this first box I am EXTREMELY satisfied! The packages normally arrive around the end of the month and they will release a box's theme 2 months in advance (November's is Magical Creatures). Honestly, y'all I went back and looked at the past boxes and it broke my heart I signed up after they went out because they are amazing, go check them out (especially July- Book Boyfriends)!
Here's the website description of their boxes:
Nerdy Bookworm Box is dedicated to bringing you the very best of science fiction and fantasy, and we strive to select a diverse range of reads, including both YA and crossover novels. Some of our past book choices have included This Savage Song by V. E. Schwab and The Witch's Kiss by Katharine and Elizabeth Corr. We work with many incredible small businesses in the United Kingdom to bring you unique and exclusive handcrafted bookish goodies, such as candles, tote bags, bookmarks, and more.
So ya, pretty cool and I wanted to share with y'all what I got in my September box:
I was very excited to pick up this beauty from the post office. The theme was Queens and so I knew I was going to love it.
The first thing item I want talk all about is the mini-magazine that comes with the box. It goes in depth about the enclosed book and the author, along with explaining some of the items, giving reading recommendations, and an exclusive sampler of a book! (This isn't even everything so I'll post a pic of the table of contents). In the magazine 'Welcome' it said "if you're a fan of the Throne of Glass series, this is the box for you", so needless to say I was so freaking excited to dig in!
So first I'll start with the book and the items that go along with it!
Here's the book wrapped up all pretty.
So this is the book "Three Dark Crowns".
Plot: In every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born: three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is a fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomachache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions. But becoming the Queen Crowned isn’t solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it’s not just a game of win or lose...it’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins. The last queen standing gets the crown.
So ya it seems really interesting, right up my alley, so I'm excited to check it out! Fun fact: The author said she was inspired by real life Queen Bee's who similarly fight to the death to become queen!
Here's the little charm that came on the book, you can see it in the "wrapped book" picture.
I thought this was just a pretty little card with a quote from the book but, plot twist, it's actually a post card! So if you want me to write you a letter with it, hit me up!
In each book box they include a bookmark with art inspired by the book of the month, ready to expand my bookmark collection.
This guy has the same art as the bookmark and the cover of the mini-magazine. It's actually a "Quest Card" (tbh see thumb it's not as big as it looks) that allows you to access exclusive interactive content for Three Dark Crowns. So that's all for the book of the month, the rest was just queen themed!
This beauty is a Khaleesi Mini-Poster that will definitely be going up on my wall. I'm currently finishing Season 3 right now and I LOVE Daenerys.
Here's my TOG fix :) This Candle is from Meraki Candles and it smells AMAZING! We can't burn candles in our dorm so I'm storing this guy to take it home during Thanksgiving break.
I can't wait to use this cute little tote bag on my next b&n run, it's even my favorite color (of course the color of royalty).
Queen of heart notebook. Idk what I will end up using it for, but it's really cute.
My first Funko Pop! It's Anna from Frozen (duh) and I found a place for her to live on my desk, but she keeps falling over so I may have to move her. TBD!
ALSO WITH THE FUNKO POP DISNEY PRINCESS STICKERS! I'm not sure where I will put these, but I'm so pumped about these cuties.
So that's everything, as you can see I got some really quality items and they were all PERFECT for me. I 10/10 recommend signing up for this book box subscription, it will not disappoint.
And now I will leave you with the works of J.K. Rowling:
