I haven’t been much active on here lately apparently, except for my monthly wrap ups, but don’t give up on me just yet! Work is tiring and I’m reading a lot (instead of blogging apparently, which is, you know, not that bad because I’m reading books and I have therefore more books to talk about!)
Anyway, back to the TOPIC for today aka the November Owlcrate box, which was themed THROUGH THE ENCHANTED FOREST, which, count me in. I just love this theme so much! It’s magic and mysterious and overall, right up my alley. I absolutely loved the goodies, and before I carry on, here are two extra pictures of my unboxing:
This blanket is honestly one of the best things that has happened to me lately, I am IN LOVE with it. I have also become obsessed with the reading planner, and basically the whole contents of this box! I’m practically taking this new bookmark everywhere with me, and the adorable wooden ornament has found its spot on my door handle. (
At least until I find a better idea?)
Since I filmed the video almost two weeks ago, and posted it about a week ago, I actually took the time to read Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw and I completely fell in love with this book. It’s a beautiful story, with a slightly eerie vibe. It’s about magic, and choices, and coming of age. It follows a town that is stuck in the midst of a snow storm. But mostly, we follow Nora Walker, who is coming from a long line of witches, and on the night of the full moon, she finds in the Wicker Wood a boy who has been lost for two weeks…
Can we also take a moment to appreciate how GORGEOUS and STUNNING this cover is?
I feel like this book can’t really compare with anything else I have read, and I loved it for that. It’s slow-paced and mysterious. Little by little, you get to know more about the characters, and I felt like the story was really well-crafted. It has some great twists, and I absolutely loved the writing.
I also realised that the author’s previous book The Wicked Deep has been on my TBR for quite some time and I have yet to pick it up, and oh boy does it look amazing? Hopefully I find the time to check it out soon!
And in conclusion, I feel like I have been BLESSED with this box. Please feel free to share your thoughts if you have also read Winterwood, as I would love to talk about it!
