The theme for this month was "Expect the Unexpected."
I'm a sticker addict, so I'm pumped on this vinyl sticker inspired by The Gilded Wolves designed by Lion in the Trees.
Like stickers, I'm also a bookmark addict and believe one can never have enough. This double-sided one was designed by Pixel & Ink Creative and has quotes from Scythe and The Fifth Season.
Then we had the next installment in the Darker Shade of Magic metal tin collection. The first one was for Red London, and now we have Grey London. I think I like this one slightly more than the first one we got because I just enjoy this design scheme better.
I was really excited when they mentioned there was going to be a Grishaverse item in this months box, and I'm a liiittle let down. This is a Rule of Wolves inspired scarf designed by Out of Print, but it's so small I'd like to see who's neck it could fit. The design is kinda cool, but not for me.
Usually, book boxes always go for canvas tote bags, so I was surprised to pull out this corduroy bag designed by Studio Kyra Calligraphy. The quote is based on Obsidio which is cool because the Illuminae Files is one of my favorite sci-fi series. It's pretty roomy too, so I think I'll get a lot of use out of this.
The book this month was The Ones We're Meant to Find by Joan He. This is a dystopian book said to be a twisty mix between Black Mirror and Studio Ghibli following two sisters. Cee has been trapped on an abandoned island for three years with no recollection of how she got there, only memories of a sister that she's determined to get back to. Kasey is a sixteen-year-old STEM prodigy who has given up all hope of her sister ever being found, but still retraces her last steps to determine once and for all what happened. Both sisters harbor dark secrets they'll have to face if they hope to finally get back to one another.
Let me know what you all thought of this months box!
