Good morning beautiful book lovers! What are you currently reading? I was really busy yesterday helping my oldest put the final touches on her science fair project board so I didn't have any time to read, but I finally started Warrior of the Wild this morning (and I'm loving it!).
Here is my unboxing of @shelflovecrate's February box, the theme was "Warrior Women".
Included in this box:
-Woodmark inspired by Warrior of the Wild and Grave Mercy created by @in.the.reads
-A pair of wooden earrings inspired by The Hunger Games
-Ankle socks featuring a quote from And I Darken
-Canvas print featuring characters from Sarah J. Maas' worlds designed by @arz28
-Sky In the Deep inspired tote bag by @kdpletters
-Two collectible chess pieces featuring Alosa and Riden designed by @silketara
-A signed, exclusive edition of Warrior of the Wild by @tricialevenseller featuring artwork by @morgana0anagrom on the back of the dust jacket, and an exclusive print of the map
As always, this was a lovely box! Did you get it? What did you think of it?

What are you currently reading?
I just finished up Warcross last night, so now I'm trying to decide between Nevernight and Bone Witch. I'm leaning towards Nevernight currently, but feel free to weigh in with your thoughts!
I read Warrior of the Wild recently and it was everything I wanted in a Viking story! The mythology and mythological creatures were incredible and the characters were fierce!
Hey, Hey plus que deux journées et c'est le week-end. J'avoue qu'ici le temps est limite estival et j'ai du mal à croire qu'on ne soit que fin mars.⠀
J'ai pris ce roman car je savais qu'il était d'inspiration de la culture nordique et j'adore ça. C'est aussi un roman unique donc je ne m'embarque pas à débuter une énième saga. Warrior of The Wild de @tricialevenseller⠀
Je ne suis pas une pro des photos pour le blog mais ce dernier m'a donné beaucoup de mal, je ne savais pas quoi faire pour lui trouver une belle place. Je l'ai donc emporté avec moi en ballade et voilà le résultat. Je n'ai pas pu choisir donc je vous laisse les 2 photos prises.⠀
Courage pour ce jeudi, demain sera bien meilleur.⠀
Blurb : ⠀
How do you kill a god?⠀
As her father's chosen heir, eighteen-year-old Rasmira has trained her whole life to become a warrior and lead her village. But when her coming-of-age trial is sabotaged and she fails the test, her father banishes her to the monster-filled wilderness with an impossible quest: to win back her honour, she must kill the oppressive god who claims tribute from the villages each year or die trying. ⠀

Had a fantastic time with @alexandrachristowrites and @tricialevenseller at the Monsters and Sirens tour! Such lovely people and had so much fun!
To Kill a Kingdom was one of my favorite reads last year! I've been trying to avoid spoilers for Warrior of the Wild and can't wait to dive in this weekend!
“What did you do?”
“Well, I made you something. Look here. I gave this squid your face.”
There is silence, and then, “Alosa, I’m going to kill you.”
Daughter of the Pirate King 😂 I love these two and I adore hate to love romances. What are some of your favourite hate to love couples!? These cuties are the latest chess pieces from @shelflovecrate and my favourite so far 😍, so freaking cute!!! You don’t want to miss out on the pieces coming in March! You can use my code “LOWE10” to save on monthly crate or book only subscriptions.
Happy Wednesday friends, I'm all out of sorts this week with no pictures to post besides this one so bear with me ... Hehe bear with me totally makes me think of the shifter series that @naardsbooks got me addicted to 😁... Anyways I'm rambling, let's discuss my photo today because it stars one of my favorite smelling @flickerwix candles and Daughter of the Pirate King. I buddy read this one with @sydneys_shelves and I had heard it was good but I enjoyed it way more than I anticipated. It was filled with adventure, action, schemes and romance ( though not enough for my liking but hey it's YA and it gave me more than I expected). Now I'm waiting on the sequel to arrive, so I can see what Alosa and Riden get up to next. .
QOTD: What's your pirate name⁉️ The color of the shirt you have on + your favorite sea creature😁

Hello lovelies! It’s time to unbox the @shelflovecrate February “Warrior Women” box!

• I’ve been looking up quotes from the show Vikings to go with all of my Warrior Women posts and I’m even more convinced now that I need to watch it ASAP. And with that- here is a full unboxing of @shelflovecrate’s February box Warrior Women. It was co-curated by the talented @tricialevenseller who is the author of the featured book: Warrior of the Wild! Everything in this box was perfection. It was all beautiful, badass, and usable- my favorite combination! April’s full boxes are sold out but you can still subscribe to the book only option! Use ESCAPE10 to save!💀
• My mom is in town for her spring break! Yayayay!!! My brother lives a couple hours north of LA so my mom and I are hanging here tomorrow and then heading down into my neck of the woods for some shenanigans! Woo!🌴

If you've been following my stories, you know how crazy my night was yesterday (technically this morning cause it happened between 4am and 8am). Colleen Hoover always manages to fuck up my sleeping schedule! But I love her for it 😂🤷♀️ I welcome it.
What is your favorite thing to see in subscription boxes? Artwork. Hands down. Put it on anything.
This is the first Shelflove Crate box that I've gotten in so many months. I had stopped my subscription for a while to save money and also because I wasn't super into the themes. I decided to give them another try because I really wanted to read the book of the month and was super into the theme. I gotta say that I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this box. I'm one of those weird people who love to see artwork in boxes and actually like prints more than some bigger items. I absolutely LOVE the CANVAS print that was included in this box. They took prints to a whole other level and I wish more boxes did that 😊 I also love me some badass Sarah J Maas female characters 💪

Have you read any books set at sea? Or in the sea ... 🧜🏻♀️?
I have a few but I haven’t actually read them. 😂
Oh actually I read an ebook last weekish called Between the Sea and Stars which was about a mermaid! Other than that ... it’s only been if a character was travelling somewhere on a ship like in Throne of Glass or ADSOM or whatever. 🤷♀️
Talking of seafaring, the theme for this month’s @bookboxclub was Smugglers and Thieves and it was full of all sorts of sea/pirate/thieving goodness! 🌊
I’ll have an actual unboxing post for you soon, for those of you who may have missed my story unboxing but for now, here’s the spoiler card for you. ☺️
The December box - Rule the Stars - is available now and you won’t want to miss it! It’ll be full of all things YA sci-fi related so please check out the @bookboxclub page for all the details on some of the items that will be included!
