Well, at first I wasn’t going to get a Shelflovereads box in the month of March for budgetary reasons, but you got me (to be fair — I don’t have ANY book boxes coming in April). Can we appreciate the new shelflovereads box that the contents arrive in? I’m not a fan of pink but this box is absolutely gorgeous. Along with most of its contents, let’s get into those!
First up is the All Feels Candle by Flick The Wick Candles. A snickerdoodle smell that is amazing. I can’t wait to burn it while watching tv, or maybe reading a new book with my “Reading Between The Wine” wine glass and mint chocolate also included in this box.
The book of the month is A Girl Like That, the goodreads synopsis is below:
“Sixteen-year-old Zarin Wadia is many things: a bright and vivacious student, an orphan, a risk taker. She’s also the kind of girl that parents warn their kids to stay away from: a troublemaker whose many romances are the subject of endless gossip at school. You don’t want to get involved with a girl like that, they say. So how is it that eighteen-year-old Porus Dumasia has only ever had eyes for her? And how did Zarin and Porus end up dead in a car together, crashed on the side of a highway in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia? When the religious police arrive on the scene, everything everyone thought they knew about Zarin is questioned. And as her story is pieced together, told through multiple perspectives, it becomes clear that she was far more than just a girl like that.”
I’ve got to admit, this sounds pretty awesome and isn’t a book I would have even known existed if it wasn’t for Shelflovereads so I’m pretty stoked to have received this and the bookplate. The kleenex was a cute little touch especially in relation to the theme of the box and I loved the Emotional Baggage clutch (not pictured because it was already in use!) is perfect as a purse, a book sleeve or just a bag to carry little things in. The only thing I didn’t really care for in the box was the Magnetic Thirteen Reasons Why bookmarks and that’s because I haven’t watched the series at all so I’m not really invested in it.
To be honest, the month of March was an emotional one for me both personally and professionally and this box was just what I needed.
