Loot Crate Dream Crate

When you are contacted by a very well know subscription box, and are asked to create your dream crate you jump at the chance. I immediately had an idea of what my dream crate would be, and being a reading and blogger you know it's related to bookish things, I just had to think of what I wanted inside it.

Advice I was given was...
You can go as over the top as you’d like and there isn’t a need to put anything physical together. Some things to consider for the thought process could be your theme (ex. Space, Heroes, Villains, Dystopian), the items to include (ex. T-shirt, artwork, Statue, grappling hook, broadsword), and the franchises to incorporate (ex. X-Men, Harry Potter, Disney, Marvel)
So after some thought I decided to go with a Bookworm Dream Crate. The perfect crate for bookworms everywhere. For my crate I used some of my own bookish items for photographic purposes, but I will also link to websites for other items I don't own.

Tell Me About It
The follow-up to #1 NYT bestseller Kelley Armstrong’s acclaimed City of the Lost, Rockton town detective Casey Duncan makes a terrible—and dangerous—discovery in the woods outside of town.

When experienced homicide detective Casey Duncan first moved to the secret town of Rockton, she expected a safe haven for people like her, people running from their past misdeeds and past lives. She knew living in Rockton meant living off-the-grid completely: no cell phones, no Internet, no mail, very little electricity, and no way of getting in or out without the town council’s approval. What she didn’t expect is that Rockton comes with its own set of secrets and dangers.

Now, in A Darkness Absolute, Casey and her fellow Rockton sheriff’s deputy Will chase a cabin-fevered resident into the woods, where they are stranded in a blizzard. Taking shelter in a cave, they discover a former resident who’s been held captive for over a year. When the bodies of two other women turn up, Casey and her colleagues must find out if it’s an outsider behind the killings or if the answer is more complicated than that...before another victim goes missing.

Casey Duncan returns in another heart-racing thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong.

This book is about worms. I can only draw worms.

You might think worms are boring - but you'd be wrong. These worms have INCREDIBLE adventures!

I can't draw those bits, though, so you'll have to imagine them.

A hilarious and superbly silly book that will have children in stitches and begging for more.
