November 2017 Wrap-Up

November wasn't that successful of a month with only 4 books read. I finished by binge through the Grishaverse by finishing Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo, which was amazing might I add. I also read Turtles All the Way Down by John Green, and I really loved it! I felt that I could really relate to the main character and just felt that a contemporary was perfect at the time I was reading it. Next, I have Milk & Vine: Inspirational Quotes from Classic Vines, which is just a book filled with iconic vines, and I loved it because I loved Vine when it was still alive. Lastly, I read The Getaway which is the latest book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and I read it because I started off by reading it so I need to continue on! It was pretty mediocre, the same as the usual middle-grade book goes, but it was still good.

November 2017 Owlcrate

This months Owlcrate I was so excited for, and its theme was Castles, Courts, and Kingdoms. The first thing we have is a Harry Potter "Expecto Patronum" Beanie to keep you warm for the winter. Next is a notebook with an A Court of Mist and Fury quote on it which reads "Don't let the hard days win". Up next are two Owlcrate exclusive items, the first being a magnetic Grisha pin from the Grisha Trilogy and also Winter is Here lip balm which is inspired by Game of Thrones. Lastly is a bar of soap that is shaped into leaves and is in the scent of Elvin Bread from the Lord of the Rings series.
Finally is the book of the month, The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano, which comes with a letter from the author, a signed bookplate, and the pin of the month.
