April has been a fun month! A lot of really good books were released, new shows came out, and new items were announced from my favourite stores. I’m feeling very grateful for all of the opportunities that I have and I can’t wait to see what May has in store. Here are some of my favourite things from the month of April!
Shadow and Bone Netflix Show
Leigh Bardugo is one of the greatest authors of the decade. She has written so many amazing books that I enjoy immensely. When I heard the news that Netflix was going to come out with a show adaption of her series Shadow and Bone along with Six of Crows, I was more than excited. I’ve watched two episodes so far (I’m trying to make it last as long as possible!) and I can’t wait to finish the show and see how it ends!
Apple recently had their Spring event where they go over all of the products that are going to be released this year. Notable mentions include AirTags, purple iPhones, iPad Pros with M1 chip, and the new 24″ iMac, now in seven colours! I have my eye on the pink one. I’ve wanted a desktop computer forever and this Mac has everything I could possibly need! I’m so looking forward to ordering it!
I have known of the company OwlCrate for a while, but I was able to pick up two of their monthly boxes (December 2020 and March 2021, respectively) along with three special edition books and two enamel pins this month! The books include These Violent Delights, Sweet and Bitter Magic, All the Tides of Fate, The Bone Houses, and All the Beasts and Briars. All of the books are signed by the author (some included an author letter, which was very cool!) and have exclusive covers. Their boxes had some really exciting goodies that I was really happy to get my hands on. I will for sure be ordering things from OwlCrate again! I highly recommend.
Bookish Box A Touch of Darkness x A Game of Fate Exclusive Box
It’s no secret that I love The Bookish Box. They have been coming out with a bunch of exclusive editions lately and they had the preorder for A Touch of Darkness x A Game of Fate Exclusive Box today! A Touch of Darkness is a modern Hades and Persephone retelling by Scarlett St. Clair and it’s been super popular! When TBB announced they were doing a special edition with reimagined dust jackets, reversible dust jackets, signed by the author, hardcover stamp, and stencilled edges, I was over the moon. I can’t wait to get this box when it ships in September!
These are all of my favourite things from the month of April! I was lucky enough to snag a few new items that I had had my eye on and got to enjoy a lot of creative content from a myriad of different sources. Did you try any new things? Do you have any recommendations? Let me know down in the comments! And, as always, thank you so much for reading!
