book boxes

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

  • ? = arrived in a previous month
  • ✅ = arrived in October
  • ? = in transit
  • ➡️ = skipped
  • ?️ = parked (not out yet)
  • ❌ = confirmed that it was lost to the mail gremlins (but thankfully refunded)

How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories by Holly Black

I have already read How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories, and LOVED it. But if you’re not a fan of Cardan from The Cruel Prince, this probably isn’t the book for you.

review copies

I only got two review copies in November, which was actually really nice (as opposed to the SIX I got in October). I am also super far behind on review copies which is the worst… ?
