book boxes

 

I subscribe to three monthly boxes: OwlCrate, FairyLoot and the book-only subscription for LitJoy. Due to COVID-19 and international shipping being the absolute shit show that it currently is, here is where I stand with boxes:

  • March FairyLoot box ARRIVED!!
  • I ordered no April boxes
  • FairyLoot limited edition of The Damned by Renee Ahdieh… Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―
  • May LitJoy book ARRIVED!!
  • May FairyLoot is in transit…
  • May OwlCrate skipped.
  • June OwlCrate is in transit…
  • June LitJoy not posted…
  • June FairyLoot not posted…

So… for the two that arrived in June:

Bone Crier's Moon by Kathryn PurdieThe Fascinators by Andrew Eliopulos

FairyLoot’s March theme was Break the Curse, and the book wasΒ Bone Crier’s Moon by Kathryn Purdie.

LitJoy’s May theme was Academy for the Bookish and Bewitching, and the book wasΒ The Fascinators by Andrew Eliopulos.

 

 

 

book purchases

 

Ooof… so, we’re outside of my limit of 10 books… BUT it was birthday month and some of them were gifts. Plus, I had two of my Goldsboro pre-orders arrive (*) So, I’m taking it!!
