Owl Crate!

IMG_20151023_203825

So I decided to try an Owl Crate for the first time. It’s pretty cool I got Hard copy of A Madness So Discreet (which I read the eARC and liked), some scented beads (which is awesome as I love making jewelry), some sugar skull erasers, an Edgar Allen Poe pouch and those cute little magnet bookmarks (the witch and skeleton).  🙂 Trying to decide if it is worth getting Novembers which is Myth and Legends or not. They are kind of expensive at $36 (including taxes) but it was fun opening and finding out what was inside. 🙂

Books read last week

Never Smile at Strangers The Lost Girl vengeance as dead as it gets

Currently reading

Before the storm Mercury Retrograde The Gourmet Detective
  • Before the Storm – tour coming up this week so must read this one!
  • Mercury Retrograde – tour coming up this week so must read this one!

What might be up next

  • Monsterland -can’t wait to try this one it just looks so fun!
  • No Other Darkness – Book two in the DI Marnie detective books. 🙂

      Can’t wait to see your post for Monsterland! Every Sunday Post my TBR grows when I check out other post….lol.

    Nice haul! I just got my OwlCrate today but didn’t get to officially haul/take pics yet. I’m pretty sure next month’s book is going to be Soundless. It’s a “highly anticipated fantasy”. That’s my guess. I don’t own it yet, so I’m in. Enjoy your new books!

    • Stormi

      I liked it but not sure if I have the money to deal out each month not knowing what I will be getting and if I will like it…lol.

    • Stormi

      Yes, very busy and the bad thing is I am not getting ahead! I am very getting my post in a few days in advance..ugh. I was so ahead and then boom I got behind..bummer.

  2. Michelle @Because Reading

    Vicks vapor rub or a nice steamy bathroom. That might help loosen the cold. I hope you feel better soon!

    I need to see what you think of Ten because I want to read that soon!

    Feel better Stormi and Have a great week! Happy Reading! ox

    • Stormi

      I have tried vicks vapor rub but nothing is working. 🙁 Lots of gunk in there and it’s been coming up so I am hoping it gets better soon.

      I have to try and fit Ten in this week as it is my TBR pile read but I cut myself a bit short and had more going on this week then I realized with THREE tours!!! I have only got one read and working on the second one..so a bit pressed for reading time…lol.

    • Stormi

      Yeah, sickness is never fun. It doesn’t help when my work is talking on the phone. 🙁

  3. Terri M., the Director

    Glad to see you got your copy of Antivirus, Stormi. I’m sorry to hear you have been sick. I think after 3 months of either being injury or sick myself, I’m finally coming out it. Yesterday I read for over 3 hours and didn’t feel the need to take a nap once!

    • Stormi

      Yes, the author was very nice and emailed me about sending a paperback copy signed so well I had to go that route instead of ebook…lol. 🙂

  4. Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library

    I hate the never ending cough! Nothing seems to help it and it takes forever to go away. Hopefully yours is leaving soon. Yay for the Paranormal Museum book! I’m looking forward to that one. I have a Tonya Kappes book as well that I’m looking forward to reading. The series looks like lots of fun. Have a great week and stay healthy!

    • Stormi

      I blame getting Paranormal Museum all on you…lol. I had seen it on Netgalley but passed on it but then seen it on your blog and well I caved…lol. 🙂

  5. Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

    Lots of mysteries in that haul! The owl crate looks fun but I agree, $36 is a bit steep on a regular basis. I’m so sorry to hear about your cold — I hope you feel better soon. Have a wonderful week, and enjoy all those new goodies!

  6. Grace Fonseca

    $36 is a little steep for the OWL Crate box, but you got some nice goodies with it. You got a lot of books this week. They look fantastic.

    Grace @ Books of Love

    • Stormi

      Yes, it is. I am not sure I will get the next one, maybe I will check out a different subscription box that is cheaper and see what I think of it…lol. 🙂

  7. kimbacaffeinate

    OWl Crate looks so cool, wow these boxes are so popular. Awe coughs suck. They drain the life out you slowly. Hope you kick it soon. Have a fantastic week Stormi!

    • Stormi

      They are popular but not good for my bank account….lol. Not sure it is worth the money.

  8. A Voracious Reader

    Ooooohhhh…Green River Killer is by Dark Horse, it’s a graphic novel and it’s true crime. I’ll have to see if my library has it. If not maybe I can suggest it and they’ll buy it. 😀 Have a wonderful week and I’ll send {{{posivibes}}} for that cough to vacate your person. 🙂

  9. laura thomas

    I thought about Owl crates but would rather know what I’m getting at that price. A surprise is nice now and then though:) So many awesome books. See some new ones and some I’ve read. I grabbed Insects! Only 99 cents is a steal. Have a lovely Sunday, Stormi!

  10. vvb

    I love this month’s owl crate. But in the same boat as you whether or not to continue the subscription because of the price. Cute stuff. Happy reading.

  11. Christy LoveOfBooks

    Blah, being sick sucks. Glad you’re feeling better though. Those goody boxes are cool. I like having so much control over what I buy, but I like seeing what other people get.

  12. Lola

    I hope you feel better soon. Those cough that don’t go away can be so annoying. yay you also got The Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum, I am looking forward to reading it. It sounds like a good one. Those subscription boxes sound like fun, it’s like getting a pressent and not knowing what’s inside, although they do seem pricey. I hope you’ll have a great week!

  13. Tracy (@Cornerfolds)

    I just got a free sample of Insects!! It actually looks pretty good… I’m interested to see what you think of Ten too! I had to DNF it, but I know a lot of people enjoyed it.

  14. Deborah

    Yet another busy week for you! I don’t know how you get time… but love that you get so much done!

    And I love the idea of Owl Crate – how fabulous… I love the idea of a little surprise gift, but (as you said) it’s not cheap.

    And I agree that ‘Ten’ looks great. I hope you get to it this week!

    Wow you got so many books and I really can’t say a word as I think I bought about 5 books today alone! Hope you enjoy! And get over your cold 🙂
