October 2017 Wrap-Up

In October I read a total of 9 books, which isn't as much as I would have liked, but good nonetheless. To start off I continued on with the Grishaverse and read Ruin and Rising, The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic, and Six of Crows, all of which are by Leigh Bardugo. I loved all of them because they were a great ending to a series, addition to the universe, and an amazing beginning to a new series.
Next, I have the Avatar: The Last Airbender: the Search Parts 1, 2, and 3. I loved all of them because I was a fan of the show when I was younger and these just add to those memories. Next I have The Crucible, which was alright. I read it for school and I can say that I did not hate it, but it definitely wasn't my favorite. Lastly, I have Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Ship of the Dead, which I really enjoyed. It was the perfect ending to the series and I'm happy of the representation that the book brought with it.

October 2017 Owlcrate

This month's Owlcrate box, Find Me in the Forest, was a pretty good one! To start we have two Where the Wild Things Are magnetic bookmarks which are adorable! Next is a Harry Potter inspired mug which has Hagrid's Hut, the Forbidden Forest, a unicorn, and more on it! To drink in that mug we have a Sherwood Forest Earl Grey and Blueberry Tea from Riddle's Tea Shoppe and Curiosities, and to go with both of them is a cute coaster that says "All Good Things Are Wild and Free". Up next is a candle from In the Wick of Time in the scent of Cabeswater. This is from one of my favorite series, the Raven Cycle, and it smells amazing! Lastly, we have a Princess Mononoke print, which I haven't watched yet, but definitely want to.
Finally, we have the book, which is Wild Beauty by Anna Marie McLemore, which comes with a signed bookplate, a letter from the author, a packet of Forget-Me-Not seeds, and the pin of the month.
