Owlcrate just sent out an email that they will be starting new quarterly box subscriptions starting spring 2025. The categories are romance, science fiction, romantasy, and horror. More details to come.

Soubhiville That‘s pretty cool! Thanks for the heads up. 1d

Twelfth Knight | Alexene Farol Follmuth

Up next is Twelfth Knight. This is author Olivie Blake writing YA romcom as Alexene Farol Follmuth. Are both pen names? I'm not sure.

Kimberlone I believe Olivie Blake is her pen name, the other is her real name 2d
nitalibrarian @Kimberlone Interesting. Thanks! 2d

Mehso-so

Ehhhhh. I've read multiple Crichton book and no Patterson books, and this book read to me like a watered down Crichton book. I felt like it needed a little more science to go with the action and more complex characters. I probably would have liked it more as a straight up disaster movie.

I finished the Julie Anne Long historical romance last night and decided I was in the mood for a disaster thriller. So I picked up Eruption.🌋

RaeLovesToRead Ooh. Gorgeous shelfie!!! 4d
RamsFan1963 I can't decide on this one. I always loved Michael Crichton, but I despise the work of that hack, James Patterson. 4d

I loved this one. It was more historical fiction than mystery, which I'm very OK with. It takes place in late 1700s Maine and our protagonist, Martha, is a midwife. It starts when Martha is asked to examine a body found in the river. A lot happens from there both in her family and in the community. I adore Martha. And I adore her marriage with Ephraim.

Hooked_on_books I‘m a big fan of Lawhon. My favorite of hers is Code Name Helene. I know WWII historical fiction is oversaturated, but it is so good. 4w

A+++++ I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was weird and beautifully written with an interesting take on time travel. I just really like books that make me feel like I'm in some sort of fever dream.

Sace “Fever dream”…I love that! I know exactly what you mean. I‘ve read books like that and loved them. 1mo

This fantasy mystery was absolutely fabulous. I loved everything about it - setting, characters, magic system, and the mystery itself. I especially loved the dynamic between our main character, Din, and his boss, Ana. Lots of lovely sarcasm with obvious respect. Can't wait for the next book!

DuckOfDoom It's my favourite book this year - so far 1mo

I went to my apts mail room to pick up a package and saw a FairyLoot box in there with my name on it! They forgot to send the shipping email, so I had no idea it was waiting for me. It's their first Romantasy box. The reviews are pretty underwhelming for this book, but this edition is very pretty.

Honey Cut | Sierra Simone

I'm 31% done with this ARC, the 2nd book in the Lyonesse trilogy. For some reason I got it in my head this was a duology (it says trilogy on the cover!🙃). So now I'm guessing this book will have a devastating cliffhanger, as Simone is known to do, and I'm not sure if I'm prepared.

As librarians like to say, "Every book its reader". This book is not getting much love on goodreads. But I adored it. Loved the world, the magic, and the characters. It just felt very unique and the mystery element really pulled me in.
