April book Haul


Hello Bookworms! Hope you’re all having magnificent starts/ends to your ย dayย ๐Ÿ’œย this post is scheduled so I imagine by the time you’re reading this I am somewhere under the concrete jungle that is NYC playing Frogger jumping from one train to the next all in an effort to get to work. Your comments down below are the first thing I see when I get in the office (with some time to spare ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ)ย & reading them is my fave way to decompress in the AM before adulting. Feel free to comment down below if you’ve read any of these titles or if you feel I should bump up any one in particular on my TBRย ๐Ÿ’œ

Beyond A Darkened Shore by Jessica Leake

*I’m already using the Carpe Diem notepad cause one can never have too many stationery ๐Ÿ˜‚ย LOVE the travel mug ๐Ÿ’™ย the candle I can do w/out, I’m just not a fan of strong musky scents. The art print is beautiful ๐Ÿ˜ย and this is honestly one of the books I’ve been really interested in.ย Definitely cool getting a book I hadn’t read as an arc but had high interest in ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผย Overall this box gets…

Circe by Madeline Miller

*I was fully prepared to start this one two nights ago until I realized I had a buddy read scheduled & this had to be paused. I feel like Circe is going to need my undivided attention, super stoked to get to this one next ๐Ÿ’œ

  3. THE WICKED KING?!?!??! You lucky lucky lucky girl… Also, I got my FairyLoot last night and was actually really impressed with this month’s box. I’m kind of worried that I cancelled my subscription too soon, after being so disappointed with the March box haha. But I’m gonna try some other boxes over the next few months and see if it’s worth paying more for FairyLoot… Looks like a great haul for you this month. I can’t wait to see what you think of Mirage, as it’s one of my most anticipated releases for this summer!

    1. I sure was lucky to win that last NOVL giveaway SMH LOL! this months box was meh for me but the book is one I really want to read so that saved it lol. OMG let me know how it goes for you with other sub boxes, I’ve been considering Unicorn Crate myself. Thank you & so far Mirage is unputdownable! haha, happy reading! โค

      1. Ughhhhhhh I NEED it, haha!.. I loved this month’s box. That luggage tag is so freaking cute and arrived just in time for me to use for my BookCon trip in a few weeks! I’m excited about the book too. It sounds like a good way to help ease some of my Vikings withdrawals, haha… Yes! I’m actually really considering trying Unicorn Crate’s June box because I reallyyyy want that book in my life and that theme sounds amazing. I’ve currently got The Bookie Box for this month but now wish I had tried Fae Crate too, because the book sounds so unique.

  5. This is a really impressive haul Lilly (also it feels strange reading the part about how youโ€™re travelling to work when you posted this haul because currently Iโ€™m travelling home from work. My mind seems to automatically put everyone in the same time zone as well even though I know thatโ€™s not how it works!)
    I hope you love The Wicked King, thatโ€™s a release I am so excited for, and Iโ€™ll be looking forwards to seeing your review for Leah on the Offbeat as well. I read it a little while ago and really enjoyed it. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Circe is an incredible read, Iโ€™m sure youโ€™ll love it Lilly but you have to let me know right away what you think when youโ€™ve finished it. Also wasnโ€™t the April Fairy Loot box incredible, Iโ€™ve already used the travel mug and Iโ€™m in love with it. ๐Ÿ˜€
    Great haul, and great post as well. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค๏ธ

    1. Thank you Beth! โค OMG yes I know! whenever I get your comments I remind myself that you're ahead of me in time. It's currently 2:47pm here so I still have about 2 hours of work left *bummer* haha! Thanks again Beth, I'm sure Wicked King will leave me just as destroyed as Cruel Prince if not more so. Circe is the next book I'll be reading just as soon as I finish Mirage & I just know I'm going to love it so I'll be ordering my U.K. version soon. The April FL box had some really neat items & I can't wait to see the sprayed edges on this month's book as well as the book sleeve *heart eyes* โค โค โค Happy reading! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. That’s all right, and oh I’m sure those two hours will just fly by. ๐Ÿ™‚
        I’m pretty much counting on it, I will be re-reading The Cruel Prince before The Wicked King comes out because I’ll need the recap. Oh yes I hope you love it, and yeah the UK version of Circe is gorgeous and well worth buying.
        Oh same here, I don’t even have a guess as to what the book is going to be.
        Thanks Lilly. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค
