Book Box Club June 18

Hello readers,

I’m so excited that I got my second Book Box Club box (I’m not sponsored - I think I have to say that) The theme for Junes box was Bad Girls and I honestly thought the whole box was stupidly cute and again I loved every bit of it. Also look at me doing this post on time if not a little early. 


What was inside the box?
The bookish goodies

N  Bellatrix Lestrange pencil tin designed by Kristin Askland, I think the design absolutely gorgeous and added bonus its filled with jellybeans. 
N  Coconut-scented shower gel that's been created exclusively for Book Box Club by Soul and Soap. I am honestly so in love with this sent and it has made my skin feel so soft.
N  A Queen of Hearts quote print designed by Kate Louise Copsey, I love the design and it will join my other book related prints on my wall.
N  The Maleficent inspired pencil is beautiful (its matte black I might be bias) created by Book Box Club.
N   A notebook inspired by the And I Darken Series by Kiersten White, which features a quote from the series. 
N  A signed bookplate by Lygia Day Penaflor

The book

All of This Is True by Lygia Day Penaflor

I have seen a fair bit about this book online thankfully nothing containing spoilers but it looks and sounds like it will be a good read.

Miri Tan loved the book Undertow like it was a living being. So when she and her friends went to a book signing to meet the author, Fatima Ro, they concocted a plan to get close to her, even if her friends won’t admit it now. As for Jonah, well—Miri knows none of that was Fatima’s fault.

Soleil Johnston wanted to be a writer herself one day. When she and her friends started hanging out with her favourite author, Fatima Ro, she couldn’t believe their luck—especially when Jonah Nicholls started hanging out with them, too. Now, looking back, Soleil can’t believe she let Fatima manipulate her and Jonah like that. She can’t believe that she got used for a book.

Penny Panzarella was more than the materialistic party girl everyone at the Graham School thought she was. She desperately wanted Fatima Ro to see that, and she saw her chance when Fatima asked the girls to be transparent with her. If only she’d known what would happen when Fatima learned Jonah’s secret. If only she’d known that the line between fiction and truth was more complicated than any of them imagined. . . .  

Bonus Book

The Boneless Mercies by April Genevieve Tucholke

This ARC is so pretty

A dark and gorgeously drawn standalone YA fantasy about a band of mercenary girls in search of female glory. Won in a major six-house auction!

Frey, Ovie, Juniper, and Runa are the Boneless Mercies—girls hired to kill quickly, quietly, and mercifully. But Frey is weary of the death trade and, having been raised on the heroic sagas of her people, dreams of a bigger life.

When she hears of an unstoppable monster ravaging a nearby town, Frey decides this is the Mercies' one chance out. The fame and fortune of bringing down such a beast would ensure a new future for all the Mercies. In fact, her actions may change the story arc of women everywhere.

Full of fierce girls, bloodlust, tenuous alliances, and unapologetic quests for glory, this elegantly spun tale challenges the power of storytelling—and who gets to be the storyteller. Perfect for fans of Maggie Stiefvater, V.E. Schwab, and Heidi Heilig.
