This book, “Star Daughter” by Shveta Thakrar, was The Bookish Box’s choice for August. As announced, the book came with a signed bookplate and gorgeous foiling on the book that matches the dust jacket.
We really enjoy this subscription and we was so happy to share the second package with you all! This month we received "Set Fire to the Gods" by Sarah Raasch (@sarah_raasch on Instagram) and Kristen Simmons (@kris10writes on Instagram).
We're excited to present our unboxing of the August 2020 box from Magical Reads Crate. 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.
Alex and I are both huge fans of Jennifer l. Armentrout! This was the first book I read by Jennifer after the Lux series. I loved the Lux series but I was excited to see her writing in a different genre. Also, Mallory’s story spoke to me when I read the description.
I haven’t read a book about monsters in a while so when Kayla mentioned this book I was definitely interested! Clara’s story felt emotional and I was ready for the ride I was about to go on.
As soon as I saw the summary for this book I knew I was going to want to read it. I’m a big fan of princes and cheesy rom-coms. This story had both so I bought it right away.
This book intrigued me as soon as I read the summary. It’d been a while since I’d read a monster book and this one really crushed it. My expectations were definitely fulfilled. The only thing I didn’t like is that I now have to wait an entire year before the sequel comes out. Boo.
I became aware of this book on the Hidden Gems website where we find some of our digital and advanced reader’s copies. It sounded interesting so I decided to give it a shot and man, I was not disappointed.
