Hello lovelies! If you’ve read my other unboxing posts, you will have noticed that this box will be my last as a rep for Bookboxclub. Something that makes me sad – but also happy to have been part of this for three months. So I sincerely hope you liked all my unboxings so far and I’m excited to show you the contest of September’s special one-year anniversary box. Yes, you read it right: Bookboxclub celebrated its birthday last month! 🎉 As a big fan, I hope there’s many more bookish years to come. They also made a special announcement, which I’ll talk about the end of the post. Read on, read on.
Hi friends! I seriously cannot believe it’s October already. OCTOBER! This year has gone so fast and I need it to chill for a second. But another month also means another opportunity to try and read more books than you did the month before. So first answer me this: how many books did you manage to devour in September? Read on to see how I did and what I plan to read this month!
The Disappearances: 5/5
Author: Emily Bain Murphy
Published by: Pushkin Press
“But really, aren’t there bits of magic everywhere we look?’ Dr. Clifton continues. ‘We’ve just stopped seeing it that way.”
Hey friends! The world’s favourite time of the year has come again. It’s time for big, cosy sweaters, a million mugs of tea, blankets, rain and the colours changing from green to brown. Ah yes, you guessed it: it’s fall. Sometimes I get why people are obsessed with it– the cosy vibes are REAL. But sometimes I can’t help but wonder if fall is better where you all seem to live, since (literally!) all we get here in the Netherlands is rain. Loads and LOADS of rain.
So if you, like me, live in a country where fall is questionable, I’ll come to your aid today. Recommending you three books I recently read to get you all warmed up for the colder months to come.
Another month, another bookboxclub Box, another post showing the full unboxing! Yay! As you might have read in my previous unboxing, what makes Book Box Club so special is that they host a secret members meeting at the end of every month. In this meeting, it’s not just you members– there’s also the author of the month’s featured book! In about an hour, you can ask all your burning questions about the book and get answers FROM THE FRIGGIN’ AUTHOR. If that’s not amazing I don’t know what is. Last month’s meeting was about July’s book The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy (review will be up soon). Let’s take a closer look at what their August box had in store for us, shall we?
The Loneliest Girl in the Universe: 4/5
Author: Lauren James
Published by: Walker Books YA
“On good days, which don’t come often, I love my ship and everything it represents. I thrill at the thought of seeing Earth II. There are going to be so many things there that have never been seen by human eyes before.”
Hoera! Het is weer eens tijd voor een winactie. En wat voor een! Best of YA was zo lief om mij een extra exemplaar te sturen van hun pas nieuwe boek DE NIEUWELING van Taran Matharu. Meedoen is super makkelijk, dus lees even snel verder om er achter te komen wat je moet doen en waar het boek nou eigenlijk over gaat!
Maybe you’re following me on Instagram. Maybe you’re not. If you are, then you might have seen that I was chosen to be a rep for Bookboxclub for the months of July, August & September. AND I AM SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THIS, because their concept and boxes are amazing. So a while ago I received the July ‘SPELLS & REMEDIES’ box and that box is exactly what I’m going to unbox for you today. Safe to say there are massive spoilers for the box but I guess you should have figured by now. Hah. On y va!
De Royals: 3.5/5
Auteur: Erin Watt
Uitgeverij: De Fontein
“It’s you. It’s always been you and I’m tired of fighting it.”
De Zon is ook een Ster: 3.5/5
Auteur: Nicola Yoon
Uitgever: Querido kinderboeken
Ik heb een recensie-exemplaar mogen ontvangen van dit boek, dit beïnvloedt niet mijn mening.
“We are capable of big lives. A big history. Why settle? Why choose the practical thing, the mundane thing? We are born to dream and make the things we dream about.”
Nicola Yoon kende ik al van haar andere, super succesvolle boek Everything, Everything/Alles wat je lief is, dat dit jaar nog in de cinema komt. Ik had verwacht dat dit boek een beetje hetzelfde zou zijn, maar dat kan niet gezegd worden. Dit is een meer melancholisch liefdesverhaal dat je aan het denken zet.
