For todays blog post I am super excited to unbox and review August’s Wildest Dreams book box. I was privileged to become an official Wildest Dreams rep and this is the first box I have received as part of my rep period and I cannot tell you how excited I am! This month’s theme is ‘Comic Legends.’ I love a good comic book film, so I am intrigued to find out what’s inside, and if you like it as much as me and fancy grabbing your very own box, you can use my discount code MARIE!% for 15% off!
First up, the featured book is ‘Catwoman: Soulstealer‘ by Sarah.J.Maas:
When the Bat’s away, the Cat will play. It’s time to see how many lives this cat really has. . . .
Two years after escaping Gotham City’s slums, Selina Kyle returns as the mysterious and wealthy Holly Vanderhees. She quickly discovers that with Batman off on a vital mission, Batwing is left to hold back the tide of notorious criminals. Gotham City is ripe for the taking.
Meanwhile, Luke Fox wants to prove he has what it takes to help people in his role as Batwing. He targets a new thief on the prowl who seems cleverer than most. She has teamed up with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, and together they are wreaking havoc. This Catwoman may be Batwing’s undoing.
I always love a book where the protagonist is an anti-hero or flat out villain, so I am excited to read this. I have also never read a comic book character novel, but I always like to be pushed out of my comfort zone and so, I am interested to see what it’s like.
Along with this book, there are a few bookish goodies. First up, is a set of four comic themed candles by Taken Moons. Candles are one of my absolute favourite things to find inside a book box so to find FOUR makes me very happy, plus they smell like heaven!! There are four distinct scents: ‘Warbringer’ a Wonderwoman inspired candle scented with desert breeze, ‘Nighwalker’ a Batman inspired candle scented with jasmine, ‘Soulstealer’ a Catwoman inspired candle scented with cherry chocolate (and good enough to eat) and finally ‘Dawnbreaker’ a Superman inspired candle scented with sandalwood. I wish that it was possible to embed scent on a blog post, because they smell delicious. I also love glitter and sparkle so I just love these!
Along with the candles, I have received a bag of Gotham City tea by the fabulous Rosie Lea Tea company. I have collaborated with this wonderful company before on a giveaway, so I am super excited to taste this tea, especially when I find out the flavour: blackcurrant balanced with Sri Lankan black tea and hints of vanilla! Can anyone else say yum? You even get some tea bags to use with the loose teas should you not own a diffuser, which I really appreciate!
Finally, to match with the badass Catwoman book, I have received a badass Catwoman bookmark featuring that awesome tag line, “When the Bat’s away, the Cat will play.” I look forward to using it to mark the pages when I read the book (because dog-earing is a sin!! lol).
So that’s the box and I really love it! I plan on burning my candles and putting my feet up with a sumptuous cup of Blackcurrant tea and my Catwoman book (keep an eye out for the review down the line). As I said before, if you like the box and fancy grabbing your own, you can use my discount code MARIE15 for 15% off.
