July’s OwlCrate had a Date with Destiny theme! It was a cool premise and it featured a lot of really neat items. I’m excited to be able to share them with you slightly more on time than I usually do!
This book had been on my TBR pile for a few years, ever since I heard Lin-Manuel Miranda was supposed to have a hand in a TV adaptation of it. I am a sucker for LMM and would listen to him perform the dictionary because he could rock that. (I don’t actually know if this still a thing, but at the time it was.)
I was pleasantly surprised to see how popular this was on bookstagram! It took me about three years to finally get to it and about five months to actually read it, but it was definitely worth it! I’m so excited to continue the series.
August was a lighter reading month for me, and there really wasn’t all that much of a reason behind that. I just didn’t read a lot, and instead did other things. I will say that I ended up reading more physical copies that I usually do, which was neat. I also read a lot of different things at once, and didn’t finish them all. However, I did end up reading 16 books. You’ll find everything I read below the cut.
The June OwlCrate was a pretty cool box. It had an “All The World’s a Stage” theme, which I loved and was super excited about. I love that quote from Shakespeare, and it was really nice to see what items were included. My apologies for the delay on posting this!
