Ink Iron and Glass by Gwendolyn Clare – Retail Value $18.99
Book Summary from Good Reads:
A certain pen, a certain book, and a certain person can craft entirely new worlds through a branch of science called scriptology. Elsa comes from one such world that was written into creation, where her mother―a noted scriptologist―constantly alters and expands their reality.
But when her home is attacked and her mother kidnapped, Elsa is forced to cross into the real world and use her own scriptology gifts to find her. In an alternative Victorian Italy, Elsa finds a secret society of young scientists with a gift for mechanics, alchemy, or scriptology―and meets Leo, a gorgeous mechanist with a smart mouth and tragic past. She recruits the help of these fellow geniuses just as an assassin arrives on their doorstep.
In this thrilling debut, worlds collide as Elsa unveils a deep political conspiracy seeking to unlock the most dangerous weapon ever created―and only she can stop it.
I thought the premise of this book sounded amazing, and I really enjoyed the alternative world building. I found it slow in parts though, and I wasn’t a fan of the instalove (I never am a fan of instalove). Not a book I would re-read, but definitely enjoyable.
SwoonReads Journal – Estimated Value $10?
This journal measures about 7 inches tall. I love the matte black cover with the simple white text. It’s perfectly simple.
The pages aren’t the highest quality (on the thin side), but still, it’s a perfect little notebook for me.
BadgeBomb Bookish Magnet – Retail Value $4.50
Uppercase sends out the cutest bookish items every month, and this magnet is a perfect addition to my growing collection of bookish stickers, magnets, pins, etc!
Comma Necklace – Estimated Value $20?
How cute is this dainty little comma necklace?
It measures about 17.5 inches long with an additional 1-inch extender.
Verdict: This box has an estimated value of about $53. I think the value is always there with this subscription – the book curation is very thoughtful, and it’s great getting a signed book each month. Plus, the bookish goodies are always cute!
