It has been a crazy couple of weeks over here, let me tell you. For some reason KC and I decided to paint half the house, plus the kitchen cabinets, buy a bunch of new appliances and tackle some other projects around the house. It's been a madhouse. I'm finally burning out on my show - okay, that's a lie, in reality things are finally calming down enough for me to 'find time' to read and watch TV - so this box from Hello Book Lover couldn't have come at a better time.
If you'll remember, I got a box from them back in August and absolutely loved it. I was thrilled when I saw the books offered this month included one I hadn't yet read but really wanted to - The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain. I've actually never read one of her books, though I have seen them everywhere. The other book offered this month is The Lake House by Kate Morton, which I read a couple months ago.
The theme for this month's box was Page Turners. I've been in a bit of a rut with reading lately - partly because of being obsessed with my show, and partly because of the 'library book that got spoiled and was missing pages debacle of 2016' that turned me off reading. I started this book last night though, and if I didn't have to go to work today I have a sneaking suspicion I would have stayed up all night to finish.
The other goodies I got this month included the yogi tea pictured above. I had never tried it before last night, I had the stress relief one - fitting after my busy couple of weeks. I've heard great things about the bedtime one, I'll try that next time I feel like I'm not going to get to sleep easily. Unless of course it's a book keeping me up and I don't have to work the next day... then what's the harm in losing a little sleep?
I also got some bath salt and lip balm from this adorable Etsy shop, Little Flower Soap Co. Lavender is pretty much my favourite in any way I can get it, so I can't wait to try the bath salt.
And then of course this adorable pot of honey that I don't want to use because it's too adorable to disturb.
All in all, another fabulous box from Hello Book Lover.
For more details on how this subscription box works, please see my previous post or visit Hello Book Lover's website. It's pretty simple, you subscribe, you pick a book and receive a box. Be sure to follow Hello Book Lover on Instagram so you'll always know what books are in the next box!
Speaking of, the books for the November box - theme is Around the Table - are Kitchens of the Great Midwest and The School of Essential Ingredients.
I love a good book with food involved. Truthfully, I just like to eat whilst reading (or, you know, breathing) and I love a book that combines the two. I actually haven't read either of these - have you?
