Enchanted Forest Unboxing!

I apologize for doing so many unboxing posts in one day but I am just trying to get them out of the way so that I don’t prolong them anymore like I have been doing.

This unboxing is not book related but it was such an amazing box and I want to spread the word about this subscription! This is my review of the September Enchanted Forest Goddess Provisions box! This was my very first box form GP and I know for a fact it definitely won’t be my last because this box was simply amazing. I loved absolutely everything this box had inside of it!

Here is a full unboxing:

The people behind Owlcrate are so sweet and just super amazing and clearly genius masterminds!

The Last Dragon Rider Review

This is the first ARC I’ve ever reviewed for someone and I was really excited when Errin decided to let me read it! This book does not release until August 9th but the cover has been revealed and you can go to my Instagram as well as Errins to see it! I’ll put our IG names at the bottom of this review. Now let’s get into it 🙂

The Last Dragon Rider by Errin Krystal:

So here is a synopsis of the book just so you can get a feel for it. The synopsis for a book always helps me determine whether or not the book will interest me.

Fintathriel is an elven prince who was trained as an elite warrior since he was a child, he fights to bring a stop to a war that was started before he himself was even born. With the help of his betrothed Sairalinde, a very skilled mage and dragon rider, they must find the Book of Souls- an ancient tome rumored to have previously belonged to a god named Hath’Raal.

But when the missing book turns up in the hands of the bastard child of the king, Mnuvae, Flint now finds himself not only trying to protect his people from this new threat but also trying to keep Saira safe from Mnuvae when she takes over the dragons as a way to win back the kingdom she believes is rightfully hers.

The love Flint and Saira have for each other is so pure and true, but when the smoke clears, will their hearts survive or will their love become a casualty.

Right off the bat you can sense some pretty epic stuff is going to go down in this first book. I cannot express how much I love the phrasing of the story! the way Errin words things is so beautiful and it’s most definitely my favorite thing about this book. Good wording makes the book interesting! Don’t even get me started on the character names. When the names of the characters are impossible to pronounce you know it’s going to be a good read!

I met my favorite character on page 28 or 29, Mnuvae, she is indeed the main villain in the story but I can’t help it her character just calls out to me and I love her! Shes a righteous and demanding character who only wants to claim what is rightfully hers to begin with. She was cast aside by her father and forced to be the bastard child, of course she was going to grow up wanting revenge.

I’m very fond of the dragons in this book because Errin describes them in the perfect way where I can actually see the dragons in my mind. When we meet Sairas dragon for the first time, Sivath, the creature is described so beautifully. “White Leathery hide shone like diamonds” “the dragon’s immense wingspan almost translucent” “Blue-black horns curled back” and then “blue-black spikes ran the length of his neck to his tail where larger spikes formed the tip.” All of that is just such an amazing detailed description and I love it!

Another thing I was quite fond of was the smut, of course, I am a major fan of any kind of sexual romance in books. Mainly if they just so happen to be in a YA novel because that’s mainly what I read. The scene with Saira and Flint was just perfect and one of my favorite lines from that part was something along the lines of, “there’s a perfectly good bed right there.” It was just such a perfect moment.

Now coming to the end of this review I would just like to say that the ending was so unexpected and so much went down I seriously cannot wait for the next book! Through out reading this I go major Shadowhunter vibes as well as Sleeping Beauty! I highly recommend giving this book a read it is a really quick read because it only has 9 chapters plus the epilogue. It took me a while to read it because I hardly ever had the energy or time. Work does that to you lol.

Over all I give this book 5 out of 5 dragon scales!

June Blue Tome Box!

Hello my fellow bookworms!

I am back with another review of something that is not a book. But it is book related so it counts, of course. Today I will be reviewing the June Blue Tome Dangerous Tides box! For those of you who follow my Instagram you know I am currently a Blue Tome rep and completely honored to be! They are super sweet and this first box was amazing so I definitely can’t wait for more!

For anyone who doesn’t know, Blue Tome is a new monthly subscription service for book lovers. Each month they send you a box full of goodies based around a certain theme as well as a newly released YA book! Who doesn’t love monthly bookish goods? Cause I know I do. Each box is around 39$ each month plus shipping, which I know can be outrageous sometimes, but if you use my code ELVENLIB5 you can get 5$ off each month you are subscribed!

Also, if you’re wondering why I am just now reviewing the June box it’s because of the way shipping works. For example, the June box shipped out at the beginning of July, the July box will ship out at the beginning of August, so on and so forth. Hopefully that’s not too confusing. I think it’s a unique way of shipping, but that’s just my personal opinion.

Now on to the actual reviewing, I was not disappointed with this first box. It was packed with amazing bookish goods including an extra gift! Shipping was fast and it didn’t take long to get to me at all, but that probably all depends on where you live. The box itself is gorgeous and that quote, “A universe in every box.” Is just so awesome! The items in the box are amazing quality and the book was gorgeous, carefully wrapped in paper so that you don’t see it right off the bat at the bottom of the box.

Here’s a photo I took of all the items included:

and lastly there is the book which was Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser! The cover of this book is absolutely beautiful and I love the glittery title! All in all this box was amazing! The July theme is Dark Menagerie and I am so excited to see what all is in store! Go subscribe for amazing bookish goodies!
