August’s Theme: “Star Song”
About Magical Reads Crate August 2020 on The Book Brontosaurus
We’re excited to present our unboxing of the Magical Reads Crate for August 2020. Tragically, our July book box was lost in the post, which is why you haven’t seen it from us yet. We have, however, received the August crate, and with it a copy of “Star Daughter” by Shveta Thakrar (@shvetathakrar on Instagram)!
Let’s dive into this month’s box!
“The daughter of a star and a mortal, Sheetal is used to keeping secrets. Pretending to be “normal.” But when an accidental flare of her starfire puts her human father in the hospital, Sheetal needs a full star’s help to heal him. A star like her mother, who returned to the sky long ago.
Sheetal’s quest to save her father will take her to a celestial court of shining wonders and dark shadows, where she must take the stage as her family’s champion in a competition to decide the next ruling house of the heavens—and win, or risk never returning to Earth at all.”
Scarf – Inspired by “Scavenge the Stars” by Tara Sim
Enamel Pin – Exclusive enamel pin inspired by “Stardust” by Neil Gaiman
Beach Mat – Inspired by mandala style art with chakra imagery
Bracelet – Metal stamped bracelet inspired by “All the Stars and Teeth” by Adalyn Grace
Bookmark – Inspired by “These Broken Stars” by Amie Kaufman
We loved the scarf and the enamel pin in this month’s box, but the bookmarks have been a little underwhelming in the boxes we have received. Also, we think there was a typo on the bracelet that I received.
We can’t say that we’ll continue to subscribe to this box but if we do, we’ll continue to post our unboxings here for all of you to review with us!
