June BOOKLOOT Review

I'm a subscription box junkie, and this month I got my first ever BOOKLOOT!

BookLoot is a monthly subscription box that provides a new release book with several related gifts. The June theme was "Call of the Water." Let's check it out!

If you've never done a subscription box, you're totally missing out. It's always a thrill when they arrive.

When I opened the box, here's what I saw:

The box was packaged very nicely. Notice that the book-- the biggest surprise-- is buried underneath. On top, there are already several gifts to explore.

First, you get a print of the month's theme. June 2017: Call of the Water. Perfect for summer! I'm already excited.

One gift included is lotion bar-- the bar inside smelled great, and the Pirate Princess jar fits the theme of the book. A fun extra gift!

The next gift was a reading journal. On the inside were all kinds of prompts and whatnot so you could keep track of what you read and what you thought about it. BookLoot is a YA themed box, so I think this is perfect!

The next gift: cool art print and short story! Definitely a sexy print to go with the book. Fun! Plus, this is an extra-short story BookLoot published. You can submit your own stories to be featured in the box. How awesome!

Finally, the big prize-- this month's featured book! It came with a letter from the author and a signed card. Let me tell you: This is a beautiful edition. The hardcover looks and feels great, and it's something every book collector would enjoy on their shelves. Definitely a nice-looking book, even if I am judging it by its cover.

It currently has a 4.01 on Goodreads. Here's the summary:

"Caroline Oresteia is destined for the river. For generations, her family has been called by the river god, who has guided their wherries on countless voyages throughout the Riverlands. At seventeen, Caro has spent years listening to the water, ready to meet her fate. But the river god hasn’t spoken her name yet—and if he hasn’t by now, there’s a chance he never will.

Caro decides to take her future into her own hands when her father is arrested for refusing to transport a mysterious crate. By agreeing to deliver it in exchange for his release, Caro finds herself caught in a web of politics and lies, with dangerous pirates after the cargo—an arrogant courier with a secret—and without the river god to help her. With so much at stake, Caro must choose between the life she always wanted and the one she never could have imagined for herself.

From debut author Sarah Tolcser comes an immersive and romantic fantasy set along the waterways of a magical world with a headstrong heroine determined to make her mark."

What a cool summer read! I look forward to it.

So, you get all of this for just $29.99. Check 'em out and subscribe here!
