Info Card + Button

Thoughts: This card. Normally I don’t post these, but this card is so pretty!! Also, this month it came with a matching button. And you all know how much I love buttons!

“Celaena’s Cake” Candle by The Melting Library (Exclusive!)

Thoughts: This is inspired by Throne of Glass (which I still NEED to read..) and it smells amazing! Just like cake! I love the little paper in the candle. Too cute!

Value: $3.63

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Canvas Pouch by Out of Print

Thoughts: I love this so much. I’ve gotten 3 pouches including this one from this brand, and they are all such good quality! Love!

Value: $12.00 
 

Back of Pouch

The quote says: “Strange, I thought, how you can be living your dreams and your nightmares at the very same time.”

LOVE.

Fortune Telling Bomb by Da Bomb Bath Fizzers

Thoughts: This says it is “A mystic berry bath fizzer with a yes or no answer inside.” I have already used this, and it smelled so good! It was a really nice berry scent, and there was a little slip of paper inside. Mine said “Outlook Positive”. So, we’ll see if my answer was correct one day.. Haha.

This site/business is ran by two teenage sisters, and they have multiple bath bombs, all with something inside! Check them out!

Value: $7.50 

Six of Crows Bookmark by Evie Bookish (Exclusive!)

Thoughts: Evie Bookish (Seo) has amazing artwork. I have a few mugs from her! Love her shop! This bookmark is pretty awesome.

It says: “No mourners, no funerals”. I love this little motto they go by! I read Six of Crows last month and really enjoyed it! Can’t wait to use this with Crooked Kingdom!

Value: $4.00? This shop does not have bookmarks listed for me to go by. 😦 

Back of Bookmark

The quote says: “When everyone knows you’re a monster, you needn’t waste time doing every monstrous thing.”

Love it! 

Ad for Moon Chosen by P. C. Cast with an excerpt from the book!

Thoughts: This is interesting. I did know that P. C. Cast was writing another series. I read the Marked series by her and her daughter. I enjoyed it, although it was a looong time ago, and I don’t know how much I would enjoy the series now. So, I have no decided if I’m even going to pick this up right now. We will see I guess!

Inside the Ad

I did read the excerpt from the book, and I don’t know.. I just don’t know that I would enjoy it. I guess I will wait and see what kind of reviews it gets!

Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake (Three Dark Crowns, #1)

Summary:
Every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born: three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is a fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomachache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions.

But becoming the Queen Crowned isn’t solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it’s not just a game of win or lose…it’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins. The last queen standing gets the crown.

Thoughts: I am so excited about this book!!! I actually guessed that this would be the book this month, and I am NEVER correct hahaha. This sounds so good. It was actually one of my most anticipated fall reads! So this is exciting. I have not gotten to this yet, but I plan to very soon!

Value: $17.99 

Letter from the Author, Signed Bookplate, and Exclusive Fortune Teller

Thoughts: I always love the letters, bookplates are the best, and the fortune teller is so unique! Love it!
