Bookish Unboxing | OwlCrate 2019 July box: Tournaments & Trials

Hello, lovely people!

How’s your day so far? In case anyone’s curious, I started writing this unboxing post on Aug. 11th, right after having our typhoon holiday but then I sort of forgot to schedule so here I am again, picking up where the post’s left one week later. Anyway, last week was as busy as I expected and guess what? It’s Sunday night and just thinking about having to go to work tomorrow exhausts me, haha.

Busy working schedule aside, I’ve done a wee bit too much bookish shopping on impulse in the past few days and I…regret nothing. LOL I’ll make sure to share with you my latest treasure hunt. ๐Ÿ™‚ For today’s unboxing, it’s my second OwlCrate box, a monthly subscription box featuring the hottest YA book (always signed by the author and with an exclusive cover) and some goodies going along with the theme, and as usual, I enjoy unboxing it and getting surprised by the items inside. ๐Ÿ˜€

Without further ado, let the OwlCrate unboxing party begin!

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.

Bookish Unboxing | Books that Matter March: Forgotten Women

Hey, guys!ย 

Today, I’m presenting to you another bookish box I tried this month and it’s called Books that Matter. Books that Matter is a rather young, start-up business launching sometime around July/August last year, so everything’s pretty fresh and unheard-of to me. What makes this subscription box stands out is that they feature indie artists, designers, authors, and publishers in their boxes so that everything included represents their endless support for those small yet promising businesses like them.

What’s more, Books that Matter is probably the first and number one FEMINIST subscription box based in the U.K. since all of their products and bookish boxes revolve around discovering new female authors or historical heroines. Anyway, I can’t wait to share what I’ve got in my first Books that Matter box in March, with the theme “Forgotten Women!”
