Lets get to it!
- Sky In The Deep by Adrienne Young, signed with and exclusive cover, letter from the Author and an exclusive “Ond Eldr, Breathe Fire” brass pin.
If you are the one person who hasn’t heard of this book or even read it yet, i’m not sure what you’re doing with your life. This book is absolutely AMAZING, I couldn’t put it down I mean its about vikings, VIKINGS people! The story is filled with action, intrigue, strong characters and a bit of romance, there’s a little something for everyone. Also look at that pin! I am a sucker for bookish pins.
OND ELDR. BREATHE FIRE.
Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield — her brother, fighting with the enemy — the brother she watched die five years ago.
Faced with her brother’s betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.
She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.
- A Court of Thorns and Roses inspired wall hanging designed by Evie Bookish
The wall hanging was such a unique item to include and Evie Bookish has such beautiful designs. If you haven’t seen any of her work before I urge you to check it out, she has some gorgeous stuff. I am so happy this is an ACOTAR inspired item because I love ACOTAR and this quote is very inspiring.
- Hermionie Granger inspired enemel pin designed by Out of Print
Like I said above I LOVE bookish pins and how cute is this one? Is there anything more fitting than a Hermonie quote on book? I don’t think so!
- Inej art print illustrated by Melanie Bourgeois
This Inej art print illustrated by Melanie Bourgeois is stunning, STUNNING! Inej is such a badass character and this print encapsulates that perfectly. While Inej isn’t my favourite Six of Crows character this is still a beautiful item!
- Children of Blood and Bone inspired bath bomb handmade by Whipped Up Wonderful
OMG guys this bath bomb smells amazing! Like absolutely delicious. You cant tell in the photo but the bath bomb is brushed with black and gold sparkle. I unfortunately don’t take baths so I wont be using this bath bomb I also cant use it because of one of the ingredients, Almond extract.
- Double sided tassel book mark with quotes from The Wrath and The Dawn and The Flame in the Mist designed by Indigo Eleven
This bookmark is supposed to have a tassel on the end but mine unfortunately fell apart i shipment, which is completely fine because the actual mark is still in one piece! I haven’t read either of the books these two quotes are from: “You are strong, fierce, capable beyond measure” is from The Wrath and The Dawn and “If I am marching to my death then I will march it as a girl without fear” is from The Flame in the Mist.

Maddix Kell is on the run. After two years in prison for crimes he did not commit, Maddix escapes and seeks out a legendary order of witchhunters who are his only chance to find justice.
But all is not as it seems and Maddix soon finds himself on the run from the people he sought as allies. When their paths collide, Jayin and Maddix must put aside their prejudices and forge an uneasy alliance that could crumble at any moment. But if they want to survive in Aestos — a brutal kingdom where magic and corruption lie hand in hand and enemies lurk around every corner — they must first survive each other
