Wow, what a week it’s been: a whirlwind of wrapping, packing, posting and planning! But there is no better feeling than waving the post van goodbye after another successful send out and seeing you all recieve your November Haunted Minds boxes really makes all of the hard work worth it!
We thought it was high time that we shared with you all exactly what we included in our October box before we launch ourselves full-throttle into all the Christmas preparations! We were so excited to be able to create a Quests and Legends themed box, as those of you who know us are aware, we love a good adventure story! In fact I’m pretty sure I was sold on this book as soon as I heard that there was an appearance by a dragon! Kate (who was a few chapters a head of me when reading the ARC actually sent me a photo of the word ‘dragon’). So without further ado… here is a full run-down of all of the gorgeous items that we we included in our October Quests and Legends boxes.
A Shiver of Snow and Sky by Lisa Lueddecke: A doomed island beset by plague and threatened by monsters. A brave young girl wracked with guilt for the sadness brought to her family. A mission to the mountains to plead with the goddess, save her people and find redemption. But it won’t be easy…
