This was my first month receiving My Bookish Crate, and it was one of those that came from a faraway land as it looked absolutely destroyed by the time it got to me. Seriously, my mom dropped it off on my bed and asked me if it got ran over by a semi.
But that’s okay because I’m just grateful My Bookish Crate ships worldwide and that they don’t gouge your with shipping expenses.
My Bookish Crate is a bit like LitJoy in that the crate is completely themed around the book. I love when they do that! It makes the experience of reading that particular title so much better.
And this month’s title was….
The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee
It’s seriously so beautiful. I’ve been wanting this book for quite sometime, but never got around to actually buying it, mostly because I was always out of town when I saw it on a bookshelf, and it’s a pretty bulky book, so that intimidated the hell out of me.
I love books, but damn do they cause indentations on my poor shoulders.
Welcome to Manhattan, 2118.
A hundred years in the future, New York is a city of innovation and dreams. But people never change: everyone here wants something…and everyone has something to lose.
Leda Cole’s flawless exterior belies a secret addiction—to a drug she never should have tried and a boy she never should have touched.
Eris Dodd-Radson’s beautiful, carefree life falls to pieces when a heartbreaking betrayal tears her family apart.
Rylin Myers’s job on one of the highest floors sweeps her into a world—and a romance—she never imagined…but will her new life cost Rylin her old one?
Watt Bakradi is a tech genius with a secret: he knows everything about everyone. But when he’s hired to spy by an upper-floor girl, he finds himself caught up in a complicated web of lies.
And living above everyone else on the thousandth floor is Avery Fuller, the girl genetically designed to be perfect. The girl who seems to have it all—yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have.
Debut author Katharine McGee has created a breathtakingly original series filled with high-tech luxury and futuristic glamour, where the impossible feels just within reach. But in this world, the higher you go, the farther there is to fall….
I honestly can’t get past how pretty it is.
*falls in love with a book*
*doesn’t even need to read it*
Among the themed bookish items we received there was:
Gotta love that name. Also, recognize that pattern? THEME. I LOVE THE THEME.
- Melting scented wax
I love buttons. Honestly. I don’t ever wear them or do anything with them. But I just love them.
- A handheld mirror
I’ve never owned/bought one of these for myself before, so that’s cool. Adulting.
So, I’d say this was a successful crate!! I loved it loved it loved it and can’t wait for next month! The theme for November is Wonderland, so be sure to get yours before they sell out!
