This weekend we are getting all geared up for watching the royal wedding because any excuse to buy union jack cupcakes in bulk is ok with us!
As we are in the spirit for celebrating, we thought it was time to show you the contents of our April Fallen Angels themed box. As soon as we finished reading this beautiful book we knew that we had to share it with you all. Anyone who has already finished reading our April read will know; it’s so unique! Despite the fantastical subject matter it feels very contemporary and strangely believable and it had us sobbing at the end. We can’t wait to hear what you all thought of it and to discuss it in our Clubhouse book group at the end of the month.
We had so much fun finding angelic goodies to include in this box and we were particularly excited to be able to include items from some of our favourite under-represented fandoms (Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Buffy). As ever, we’ve been overwhelmed by the talent and brilliance of the small businesses who have crafted goodies for our April box.
The day we had boxes and boxes filled with Tunnocks Teacakes arrive on the doorstep must have been one of our favourite Book Box Club moments ever and, because we are such huge fans of this chocolatey treat, Graham from Tunnocks was so lovely in sending us lots of extras (just in case!)…what an angel!
In all seriousness, we have had lots of lovely people help us make this box great and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank every one of them!
So here it is:
Out of the Blue by Sophie Cameron: Winged creatures are crashing to earth at an extraordinary speed, not a single one has survived. Grieving the loss of her mother, Jaya wants nothing to do with the angel fever that is sweeping the nation. But, as she tries to avoid the mania, the exploitation and the protests that surround her, a live angel falls at her feet…
Clubhouse Invitation: Join us for our online book group (AKA heaven for the unashamedly bookish). Ask your questions to the lovely Sophie Cameron and make new friends with the Book Box Club angels/demons/members!
