Unbox with me: OwlCrate June 2019

I broke down and purchased the June OwlCrate box this months theme is Libraries of Wonders.  I am not an OwlCrate affiliate I paid for this box myself.

Owlcrate is a young adult book subscription box. Every box includes a brand new young adult novel, 3-5 high-quality bookish items, as well as exclusive goodies from the author! Every box has a creative theme that ties everything together.

I believe all of the items are exclusively made for Owlcrate and cannot be purchased separately.

OwlCrate June 2019-book

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one of Austermeer’s Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among the tools of sorcery—magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink and leather. She hopes to become a warden, charged with protecting the kingdom from their power.

Then an act of sabotage releases the library’s most dangerous grimoire. Elisabeth’s desperate intervention implicates her in the crime, and she is torn from her home to face justice in the capital. With no one to turn to but her sworn enemy, the sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn, and his mysterious demonic servant, she finds herself entangled in a centuries-old conspiracy. Not only could the Great Libraries go up in flames, but the world along with them.

As her alliance with Nathaniel grows stronger, Elisabeth starts to question everything she’s been taught—about sorcerers, about the libraries she loves, even about herself. For Elisabeth has a power she has never guessed, and a future she could never have imagined.

So what do you guys think?  I really liked this box. There isn’t anything in this book that I will not use! And since I ended up with three copies of this book this month my daughter has claimed this one, her favorite color is purple.

Waiting On Wednesday: Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday was a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each Wednesday you got to highlight a book that you were really looking forward to. Unfortunately, the original creator is no longer able to host the meme and it has now linked up with Can’t Wait Wednesday over at Wishful Endings.

This week I’ve chosen: Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
