Happy Saturday everyone! Hooray for another three day weekend here in the UK. Is there anything better than a whole extra day to laze around in your pyjamas and read? To kick off your weekend we have a spectacular unboxing for you.
The theme for our April box was BOLD & BRAVE and was inspired by the most courageous characters in fiction. The book at the centre of this box is a fantasy adventure with a daring protagonist who really inspired us…
So now, without further ado, it’s time for the unboxing!
THE HAND, THE EYE AND THE HEART BY ZOE MARRIOTT: In the perilous Land of the Dragons, war is brewing. With the fate of the empire and the family honour at stake, Zhi must face the battlefield disguised as a male recruit. With a deadly enemy approaching, betrayal on all sides and a huge secret to keep, one thing is for certain, Zhi will have to be brave to stay alive.
