Bookish Unboxing | Once Upon a Book Club April Young Adult box: The Case of a Reclusive Writer

 

Hints

Hello, bookish peeps!!!

I hope you’re doing fantastic because I am! This is an unboxing I’ve been dying to share with all of you because everything is too perfect to be true. In case you’re wondering, Once Upon a Book Club Box is a monthly subscription book box featuring both Adult and Young Adult boxes so you can choose between the two based on their hints, or you can simply order both for double pleasure. ๐Ÿ˜›

Long story short, since I’ve been eyeing this box forever, when I saw their April YA hint, I was ten thousand percent sure their book-of-the-month would be the one on the very top of my 2019 most-anticipating read, so of course I placed my first ever order right away. ๐Ÿ˜€

Now I’m beyond excited to show you all the bookish goodies in this box and how amazingly the wonderful ladies working behind this lovely business have curated for this one. โค

Are you ready?

Bookish Unboxing | Books that Matter April: Black Women’s History Month (+why this is my last box from them)

Hello, hello, hello!

It’s just the beginning of May and the month’s been promising already. Well…at least on my bookish notes. ๐Ÿ˜›

To begin with, bookish subscription boxes have been my ultimate kryptonite since I started trying out some of them and now I’m officially, uncontrollably, helplessly obsessed with them. As you can see, I’ve got a brand-new section on my blog dedicating to all the future bookish unboxing posts. THAT is the proof of my wholeheartedness. LOL

Therefore, please let me present you with my second and unfortunately, last box from Books that Matter, an U.K.-based bookish subscription box company. Don’t get me wrong; I’m still satisfied with everything in their boxes, but due to some personal reasons (I’ll elaborate later in the post), I won’t place any order from them.

Read-to-Review: Off the Record by Taylor Danae Colbert

44555542โ€œDax Thatcher?โ€ I ask. โ€œBut isnโ€™t he sorta. . .old?โ€

Ugh. Celebrities. I mean, I know I took a job as a reporter for the Celebrity and Pop Culture department of our magazine, but it was just supposed to be a stepping stone to the more real stuff.

Despite the fact that Dax Thatcher was the subject of many of my teen fantasiesโ€”and I may or may not have an entire playlist made up of his musicโ€”heโ€™s still just another star.

Until his golden eyes pierce through me that day on his Malibu deck. I find myself having dinner with him, going backstage with him, lying on the beach with him. I find myself telling him my deepest secrets, and diving deep into his less-than-perfect past.

And then I remember my assignment: a four-issue feature on Dax Thatcher. . .and his supermodel fiancรฉe. Yep, heโ€™s getting hitched.

I have to focus. Iโ€™m a serious journalist, and he is mere months from walking down the aisle with someone else. But that doesnโ€™t stop me from wondering what those tattooed arms might feel like wrapped around me, or how soft the sheets on his California king bed are.

Yikes. This celebrity stuff might be a little more real than I thought. (From: Goodreads)

It’s Monday! What are you ReAdiNG? #2

Good afternoon, guys! ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Apparently it’s been a while since I last posted something casual or basically, something non-blog-tour-ish, so I decided to write my second post for this interesting meme. Besides, I also have some plans in mind regarding my bookish and real life; hence, I’m still contemplating on how to make such announcement.

Anyway, I’ll start today’s post by sharing my current TBR and the books I planned to finish this week and then I’ll be talking about other random stuff. ๐Ÿ˜€

Sounds good?

Cover Reveal: In Harmony by Emma Scott *2018’s Most Anticipated*

Good afternoon!

Today, I took great delight in revealing the beautiful cover for one of my top favorite authors, Emma Scott‘s, upcoming release, In Harmony and ahhh, I will read and review this book no matter what!

In case you’re not familiar with this extraordinary author, she describes herself as a writer who “writesย romances with flawed characters, characters with artistic hearts: builders, poets, and writers of various makes and models. I love to write book lovers; those who have found refuge, companionship, and escape in books, much as we do in real life. I like realism, honesty, authenticity in storytelling. I love to write about enduring love, soul-deep love, in as real a setting as I can make, but with big smooshy HEAs. I believe in diversity, open-mindedness, and inclusion. I like sweetness mixed with steam, love conquering all, and above all, hope. Love always wins.” on her blog.

Seriously, her stories contain EVERYTHING I look forward to in a book! Anyway, let’s get on to the cover reveal for In Harmony, shall we?
