July 2020 book haul

book boxes

I subscribe to three monthly boxes: OwlCrate, FairyLoot and the book-only subscription for LitJoy. International shipping is still an absolute shit show… but it is getting better. So, here is where I stand with boxes:

  • FairyLoot limited edition of The Damned by Renee Ahdieh… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • May FairyLoot ARRIVED! (this was my last May box I was waiting on)
  • OwlCrate for June ARRIVED!
  • LitJoy for June ARRIVED!
  • FairyLoot for June… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Book boxes that in July:

  • FairyLoot’s May theme was Desert Dreams, and the book was Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust
  • LitJoy’s June theme was Mythical Gods, and the book was Sisters of Sword and Song by Rebecca Ross
  • OwlCrate’s June theme was All the World’s a Stage, and the book was Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angeles

Girl Serpent Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust FairyLoot edition

Sisters of Sword and Song by Rebecca Ross

Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angeles OwlCrate edition

book purchases

LOTS of gift-voucher and birthday money being spent here!! I think I still have a couple more books that were pre-ordered to come in, but they should all be here by… October?

Also, I’m so proud of myself for actually reading a bunch of these already!! Yes, even if three of them are graphic novels and one is a novella.
