Unboxing: Book Box Club January 2019!

Unboxing: January Book Bok Club 2019!

New year, new unboxing! Here’s the first Book Box Club box of 2019 \o/

Book Box Club sends you one new YA release each month along with 4 -6 bookish goodies that fit that month’s theme. Every box comes with an invitation to the online Book Box Club book group, which hosts a monthly chat with the author of the selected book. 

(Sidenote: My best friend bought me a Book Box Club subscription for my birthday, because she is the best and knew how sad I was to have to unsubscribe (ah, finances) so this post is entirely thanks to Tora, the best best friend a Moog could have <3)

January’s theme was Storytellers – let’s get into it!

unboxing: book box club october 2018!

A Book Box Club box, the theme card for this month, and a pink rose

Is this a super late Book Box Club unboxing? Yes! But we’re doing it anyway! I think this box is my favourite subscription box I’ve ever received, and, even if it’s been more than two months since it was sent out, I still want to yell about how wonderful it is.

ALSO! Book Box Club have just launched their new shop! If you want any of the items in this post, you can take a look here to see if the individual item or the whole box is available 😀

top ten tuesday: priority tbr books for 2019

Top Ten Tuesday!

Recently I moved all my physical tbr books off my bookshelves and into piles on their own so that I could have a clearer idea of what I’ve actually got to read and that pile is… let’s sportingly say sizeable, if by sizeable we mean “five stacks of books impeding my way across the living room”. Next year I want to try and actually make a dent in it! I will get to read stories I’m really looking forward to AND reclaim inches of floor space! A double victory!

This post is also for the Top Ten Tuesday prompt “Winter 2018 TBR” — I’m twisting the prompt a little bit because I’ve already talked about my December reading plans here.

Here are ten books I want to try and prioritise reading in early 2019:

end of the year book tag 2018!

IMG_20180306_214414_217.jpg

I can’t believe it’s December! The best month of the year! (I might be a tad biased because my birthday is in December but also I am essentially the spirit of Christmas all year round, so in December my TRUE FORM becomes visible.) And you know another great thing that starts happening in December? BOOK LISTS.

I saw Regan from Peruse Project do this book tag a little while ago and I thought, yes! I can do that too! I think it’s meant to be done in autumn rather than, say, at the beginning of December but WHATEVER THOR I DO WHAT I WANT. Let’s take a look at my reading plans for the end of the year and also start pining for some 2019 releases! This tag was originally created by Ariel Bissett.

tome topple tbr!

1530531043166Your girl is taking part in her first readathon! *tiny happy flag* I recently took all my tbr books off our bookshelves and put them in their own pile, so now I have a super visual idea of what I’ve got to read and, uh, let’s just say it is more than I thought. ANYHOO, when I read about the #tometopple challenge via Jamishelves‘ blog, it made me think of some of the enormous books on my newly formed enormous tbr pile, and what better way to start tackling them than a readathon? No better way!
