Uppercase Unboxing #3
Seventeen year-old Britta Flannery is at ease only in the woods with her dagger and bow. She spends her days tracking criminals alongside her father, the legendary bounty hunter for the King of Malam—that is, until her father is murdered. Now outcast and alone and having no rights to her father’s land or inheritance, she seeks refuge where she feels most safe: the Ever Woods. When Britta is caught poaching by the royal guard, instead of facing the noose she is offered a deal: her freedom in exchange for her father’s killer.
However, it’s not so simple.
The alleged killer is none other than Cohen McKay, her father’s former apprentice. The only friend she’s ever known. The boy she once loved who broke her heart.
She must go on a dangerous quest in a world of warring kingdoms, mad kings, and dark magic to find the real killer. But Britta wields more power than she knows. And soon she will learn what has always made her different will make her a daunting and dangerous force.
I have to say, this book looks like it was picked just for me. There is also a temporary tattoo of the cover image.
The real prize in this box, however, is the exclusive Simini Blocker designed planner. I’ve followed Simini’s work for several years and have always coveted it. Now I have my very own piece! And what a design! Each month starts with an illustration and famous book/reading/library quote, followed by a small calendar of the entire month. Then there is a reading log page, then one for each week. It is fabulous and laid out exactly how I like to use a planner. She is a genius and her artwork is breathtaking. It comes with some book stickers and a gold book planner kit.
This is by far my favorite of the three boxes I was sent and well worth what it would have cost had I purchased it. If you’re still looking for the perfect gift for the teen reader in your life, this subscription would be a welcome choice.
