I received this book in the September Books on Dragonwings subscription box (which you can find my review for HERE).

This was also the first book that I have ever formally read with a buddy before, and I enjoyed the whole experience!  While overall the book wasn’t that great for me (more on that later) I really liked messaging Jennifer back and forth throughout the entire book.  Her input on certain plot points and characters was not only helpful when I found myself confused, but also it was fun.  So, thank you Jen!  I loved our buddy read!

Books on Dragonwings Unboxing!

I love trying out new book subscription boxes. So, when I stumbled upon @booksondragonwings Instagram account a few months ago, I knew I had to give this one a shot.

Books on Dragonwings is a fairly new-ish quarterly subscription box that differs slightly from other book subscriptions in that the book featured is announced and not a surprise. books-on-dragonwings-box  I love this idea; it takes away the anxiety of purchasing multiple book boxes and having either duplicate books sent to you, OR receiving a book you have already bought.  In addition, all of the items in the box are curated to fit the book chosen, rather than a general theme.  I assume this would make for a fun and presumably more interactive reading experience.  (I haven’t actually gotten to read the book yet, so I cannot say for certain this is true)  But, I am a huge sucker for all things fantasy and science-fiction (the two genre’s this book box is centered around), plus the logo is just so cute!

The book that was featured in the September Books on Dragonwings box was The Reader, by Traci Chee!  The Reader was getting wonderful reviews pre-release, so I was pretty excited to purchase this box.  And without further ado: September’s Books on Dragonwings unboxing!
