I didn’t actually buy any books in June and I’m pretty proud of myself for that. However, I did order some books in May from Indigo and they came in this month. I also got my May OwlCrate box in and it was super exciting because it had a book AND a graphic novel.
June’s book for the #bestiemademe challenge is Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim. Kari has also reviewed this book, and you can find that here. She absolutely loved it, and honestly, this is another recommendation that she knocked out of the park. I really, really had a good time reading this book and I ended up giving it 4 stars on Goodreads.
Despite the fact that COVID-19 has thrown off OwlCrate’s usual schedule, I still really loved this box and everything that it had in it. I think that the theme (Full Moon Magic) was super fun and the items all really fit the theme. I just wanted to do a quick post to go over everything that came in the box, and my thoughts on the items. You’ll find that all below the cut.
***Disclaimer: I received a free early access copy of Ruthless Gods by Emily A. Duncan from NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for review purposes. Thank you so much!
I was able to get an early look at Wicked Saints last year, so I’m so grateful that I was able to get to do the same with the sequel! The first book was super enjoyable, however, I believe this time the sequel was even better.
There will be slight spoilers in this review.
When I was little, I would play make believe, and every so often I would pretend to be royalty. I was always fascinated by the concept. However, I didn’t just pretend to be a princess. I also remember a time when my cousin, my little brother, and I pretended to be former Prime Ministers of Canada at the behest of my cousin who has always been interested in politics. In today’s Tag Tuesday, we are going to pretend that I am the ruler of books. You’ll find my answers below the cut.
