The March Bookish Box finally arrived and included an array of items from stories with powerful sidekicks!
The Bookish Box has honestly been a bit of a let down overall the last few months, so I was genuinely hoping for something to really turn it around for me.
The shirt this month was inspired by Samwise from Lord of the Rings. It reads:
“I can’t carry it for you but I can carry you and it as well.”
This powerful quote was a great starting point for the sidekicks box.
The next item was a tote bag inspired by Marlee from The Selection series which reads:
“There was too much love in my heart to leave room for regret.”
If you haven’t read The Selection series, it’s a wonderful set of books and Marlee was a wonderful sidekick. I’m pleased to see she was mentioned.
Next, we have one of the most famous sidekicks, John Watson embodied with a pair of Sherlock socks by Out of Print. Unfortunately Watson wasn’t pictured on the side, but I understand the reference and am glad that he was included. Plus socks….never go wrong with socks.
Cherry Pit Crafts had a hand in this month’s box, creating a Simon inspired candle from (I think, heh) The Shadowhunters series. I’m not positive though so don’t quote me. It’s titled “Java Jones” and smells strongly of coffee which is always a great go-to scent for a candle. I’m sure it has some tie-in to the character but unfortunately I haven’t read it.
Finally, the last item was an art print by Lexy Olivia inspired by The Lunar Chronicles though this is yet another series I have yet to read. This print is really pretty and I’m assuming it’s a quote from a sidekick in the series but, again, I have no idea from who.
The book this month was The Hidden Memory of Objects by Danielle Mages Amato. I absolutely loved this title and was thrilled to see it included! You can click here to see my full review of this book.
Overall, this box was good – not great. I was hoping for a major wow factor but there was nothing I absolutely had to have.
