An unboxing (ShelfLoveCrate)

I am going to post an unboxing here for the ShelfLoveCrate for July 2017.  ShelfLoveCrate is a subscription box company whose themes usually focus on YA fantasy and sci-fi.  I’ve been subscribed to them since their first box (which I almost missed out on but luckily got when they had extras go on sale), and so far not a single one has been disappointing!!  The packaging it beautiful, with the inside lid saying “Your magical journey starts now…” and they tie everything up under tissue paper and string and it’s so, well, magical!!

So, this month’s theme was “Shakespeare’s Mystery Town.”  I kind of knew what the book was going to be because I had an egalley of it (and actually read it last month), so I was definitely excited for this box!  I’ve actually been on a Shakespeare kick lately – I recently read Much Ado About Nothing and Twelfth Night – so I knew I was going to be pleasantly surprised.

Alright, spoilers ahead so stop reading now if you don’t want any.

6 Days of Work in a Row Equals a Need for an Excellent Day Off

So these past six days I’ve had to work every day due to my coworker being on sabbatical leave.  Okay, fine, I need money, but oh my god was I tired by the end of it.  Also a little stressed because so many projects had to be done by yesterday.  So today, my friend and I went and saw both Wonder Woman and Spiderman Homecoming and it was great.  Both were great.  We spent six hours straight in the movie theater but it was worth it.

Then I got home and found my ShelfLoveCrate had arrived!!  Yes I am a subscription box junkie and I should stop but I don’t want to.

So that was a nice end to the day :).  I won’t post spoilers for it here, but if you are curious you can check out my instagram stories for today where I did a full unboxing.  This month’s theme was Shakespeare’s Mystery Town.  It was a book I actually already read via an egalley from Edelweiss and something that I really enjoyed!

Anyway I hope the rest of you are having as nice a day.  I just wanted to share mine with you.  Nothing big happened, but it was just nice to have some fun, see some great movies, and relax.
