Its unboxing time, Book Box Club November Theme was Haunted Minds which I think is a perfect theme for the winter months.
I love having a good old bath, so I was supper exited to pull out the Finch & Violet Bath Salts by the Glasgow Soap Company. The salts smell amazing and made my baths more relaxing.
I loving colouring and was very happy to pull out The Little Book of More Calm Colouring. It’s a great size for traveling so this will be coming around with me when I go out.
Winter is prefect for candles, and the Heathcliff candles by JustFribble, is a great candle to remind us of summer nights, with its scents of earl grey and Heather.
Book Box Club has created a beautiful Raven Boys Tea towel, at least when I am having to do my dishes I can do it in style.
This months book is called The Memory Tree by Kali Wallace. If I hadn’t been for the Book box girls I think I would have missed out on a good book.
The book description:
For the first eight years of her life, an unusual apple orchard in Vermont is Sorrow Lovegood’s whole world. The land has been passed down through generations of brave, resilient women, and while their offbeat habits may be ridiculed by other townspeople – especially their neighbors, the Abrams family – Sorrow and her family take pride in its odd history.
Then, one winter night, an unthinkable tragedy changes everything. In the aftermath, Sorrow is sent to Miami to live with her father, away from the only home she’s ever known.
Now 16, Sorrow’s memories of her life in Vermont are maddeningly hazy.
